How do we find a mod?

coreycorey Hosting ProviderOG

How do you find a list of mods in vanilla? Wanted to ask a question but can't find them. Don't want to bother Anthony as from what I read in the cest pit he is recovering from some illness.

  • maybe try flagging your own post and asking your question in that messagebox?

    This place does need a mod and I nominate @downtime for this role. He will be a fine job.

    Shoot me a PM there are no mods atm, I am in a shit state but I am keeping an eye on things, perhaps not as often as I would like atm but I can’t help that.

  • @deank may actually be the most modest moderator for any situation, in moderation

    @corey self-moderation is definitely appreciated

    beyond that - if it's something that can wait , then ... maybe it can wait?

  • deankdeank OGOfficial Troll

    @FAT33 has been doing a job on the other place. Why not him?

    And give @SSW a tag please?

    Yeah, he never asked for anything.
    Usually people are hugry and needy, they ask for cookies or sausages, but one only has a few potatoes to give them then they are sad, thinking potatoe doesn't have enough kilo-electron-volts...

    @AnthonySmith If you put @uptime, @deank and @FAT32 in moderation, the site would run 33% faster than with the latest brand of nginx server oil.
    And if you consider adding @WSS to the list, the optimizations would go up to 44%.

    Never underestimate potatoes.

    I mean look at Irish famine. They (or their teeth) were fine when they were eating potatoes. During the famine, they were given corns and they began to loose their teeth!

    The power of potato is profound.

    I vote @Fat32 @deank @poisson @Amitz @uptime for the mod position.

    These users have been super active in this forum and each brings their own special talent. But I am kinda looking forward towards seeing a post getting banned by the Grim Ripper with or comment.

  • There may be trouble ahead..

    Where's the ignore setting?

    Yeah, i agree, if you add @Amitz too, the performance optimizations are going to go up to 55%.

  • @deank @Janevski @seriesn

    Thanks for nominating me however I am usually more interested in organising events, reducing spams and shills instead. I don't really like to solve cases when there are heated arguments, especially when it involved respected members. I consider myself as not objective enough so pretty sure there are other members that are more suitable :)

    I am German. Therefore I am a potatoe. Therefore rich in potassium. I make everything perform 55% better, just by sitting next to it. That is how premium german engineering works.

    Did you know the potassium produced by @Amitz directly powers 95% of the servers for the LES forum?

    Garlic does wonders.

    Even if it doesn't cure you, after drinking enough of it, you just don't care. :)

    I understand moderator burnout is a thing ... Personally I prefer to avoid taking too much responsibility, just rather do what makes sense as an interested observer and fellow traveler

    also I am certifiably insane but maybe not quite crazy enough to really want to deal with too much internet meshugas if I can help it ... So the troll role is usually how I like to roll - might pretend to get serious from time to time just for karmic relief

    one idea for a possibly workable moderation system has been mentioned before by @AnthonySmith: compartmentalize as much as possible the various aspects of forum management - so there would be a specific mod tag for handling details relating to providers, or offers, or spam, or (fill in specific moderator responsibility here)

    might consider also instantiating these roles as separate account names, which could make it easier to let volunteers both step up and step away as necessary without too much confusion

    OK - had enough. It's potato or potatoes! Jeez.
    Looks like the Cest Pit is spreading into other threads - not good. :|
    Can you guys not save the shit for the Cest or Amitz threads?

    I have covered this a few times, mods will be paid they will also have specific roles instead of being general, I may also keep them anonymous to avoid animosity, not 100% decided on the last part yet.

    Basically you will know who covers what and who to contact for anything report worthy, if they don’t perform they will be replaced (the reason for the anonymous element) with someone else.

    Example.(very rough examples)

    @General-abuse-mod, responsibility = spam, forum fights, racist bs, general rule breaches.
    @Offers-mod, responsibility = offers that break rules, offer post trashing, cleaning up the les exclusive offers, approving new hosts.
    @super-mod, responsibility = making sure other mods are keeping up and picking up any slack as required, cleaning up the users in the backend with no posts after xx days or unconfirmed emails.

    I hope to have this in place by end of March.
