    Like the title says, have you ever been a moderator on a forum?

    I have been a moderator on 2 dutch boards, but they had to stop [​IMG]
    Currently I mod the USB loader (GX) boards (please visit us if you're interested [​IMG])

    But what about you? Have you been asked to be moderator, or did you create a forum yourself? Or something else? [​IMG]


    Note: with other staff I mean thing like Podcast crew or Magazine staff (even if they have mod powers) here

    No, I wish to be a moderator. I don't think it will happen. [​IMG] I won't give up though. Well, the thing is, A few weeks ago I bumped and got warned. Trying to get rid of warn now.

    No. I'm too fail to be one. Any admin taht makes me a mod must be out of his mind.

    But I think I remember quite a number of mods on other forums here...

    As for me, i was an admin at an xbox forum, but it got closed because it was too dead and both of us were not able to recruit more people, even when we made a recruitment thread at a few popular rom sites. It was pretty fun while it lasted for a week or so [​IMG] Looking at the options and etc.

    O ya, speaking of, i think i was an admin at a old unofficial cheat forum as well, not sure what happen to that forum

    Currently, only mod position would be at the cheats.gbatemp forum, but meh, i didn't do much, other than ban a few advertisement jerks and banning morons who cant think.

    Quite some people seem to be mod/ have been mod
    And even Admin [​IMG]
    Other staff isn't very popular [​IMG]

    If you're really 14 years old (like your profile says) its not too strange.
    Usually the older people get to be mods [​IMG] (not very old, but most likely adults)
    I dunno how young/old they are here but probably start around 20 (maybe a little younger)

    Yeah, admin on a forum (about a server on Counter Strike: Source (if it's online) I'm also admin on).
    Nothing else.

    No, I haven't ever been a moderator, but I'd like to become one to kick those n00bs out of the temp.

    I'm a moderator in Guildland. That's the website that runs 24/7 in my head. Right now it's streaming porn and pirating a copy of Star Fox Adventures.

    Anyone, no, I haven't. The only site I was really into was PvXwiki, and it ended up that most of the time the whole thing was a game of favoritism and popularity instead of common sense. Not to mention a bunch of idiots who ran around making the place a shithole, then complained about it being a shithole, then were able to get off the hook from a ban because they were the only decent Guild Wars players on the site. I'm pretty sure the site's on it's deathbed right now, anyway. A lot of people started leaving, others became inactive, and the overall userbase started rolling downhill. I just left because I got bored of Guild Wars and finally had something to kill the time I would normally spend on that site (my R4).
