If it is obvious that a moderator is not doing their job, then, yes they should have some limit on their term, or be voted out somehow.
I hope I don't receive a warning for saying so!
No, you won't receive a warning. When moderators don't do their jobs, then its up to their supervisors in the administration to take action, which has happened on a number of occasions in the past. If you feel that a particular area is being neglected, my suggestion is as follows:
- PM the moderator in charge of that section. Be courteous and direct; the biblical model of conflict resolution involves direct contact.
- If that doesn't work, then PM their supervisor (the GMs supervise the mods, and the Admin of the Forum - Fr. Chris - supervises the GMs).
- PMing Fr. Anastasios is theoretically the last option, as he is the founder and owner of the forum; but he has stated in numerous places that he prefers all forum-related matters to go through Fr. Chris, so make sure your "beef" is of significant importance before contacting him.
We usually are good at following up with moderators who have not checked in for awhile; however, it's not a perfect system, which is why there is always the feedback loop with the members of the forum. PM us your concerns, or use the "Report to moderator" link that is present in every post to contact us.
