Where all the Mods at?
« on: May 09, 2012, 06:53:36 PM »
I'm not trying to call anyone out, it's just that I rarely see any Mod action.  Did Forum Policy change while I was arguing with other members?  :)

No change in policy.  I guess everyone (including myself) has just been busy.   :)

Present and accounted for!

It's all happening "behind the scenes"!  :)

Besides, its a good thing that all the members are so WELL behaved lately!!!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

How do you get to be a mod?? Im not asking because Im interested in becoming one, but I'm curious as to how some of you received such benefits...
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

No comment.

If you have PMed me, the mods have taken my ability to PM away. Please see my email if you wish to contact me during my time of trial.

Benefits?

You should talk to a mod or two about the "benefits".

You know what I mean. 

I should have said  "I'm curious as to how some of you were chosen to be elevated to such authoritative positions..."

That's right. Just because you don't see us, doesn't mean we are not watching every keystroke you make!

If there are vacancies for moderation positions, moderators are asked to present people they'd like for that job and we list their potential candidates and post opinions about potential candidates listed by other mods (there is kinda off discussion). After the list of several candidates is created it is reviewed by higher authority (global mods and admins). They choose one person from that list, taking into account moderators' discussion, and ask him/her if s/he want to be a mod.

You can say that again. It's akin to serving on a parish council.

Only easier to step down from and you don't get dirty looks from everyone else for doing so.

At least, i don't think i've got any dirty looks... ;)

Although I would qualify this by saying that, from my experience, relations between moderators have always been rather good. The real fighting begins when we try to wrestle one of those many non-mod troublemakers who refuses to be moderated. If you're going to wrestle a troll, you had better be prepared to bring in reinforcements.

This is completely incorrect. However, if I say why I will be moderated for publically criticizing the mods, so I cannot tell you why.  :police:
