    there are toooooo many mods in my opinion already in this forum.......

    but i'm not the one who decides this stuff, try to send a pm to kivan or alexander......

    i think they are the ones u should talk to....

    ok thanks Ap0cAl1pS3
    I'll try it, but I don't have much hope it'll work
    There are enough Mods allready, as you said.
    But if I don't try, I'll never get to know

    I'd have to agree with ApOc. Not that many Moderators are needed, and now that Rom requests are banned, the forums will probaby get a lot quieter.

    You only become one if the others think, you are right for the job. asking to be one, narrows that chance down

    Admittedly I'm (I believe) the newest of the moderators but I'd like to share some stats with you guys.

    Forum opened 23 Oct (40 days ago)

    29926 posts (total)

    8541 members

    748 posts a day

    3 admin
    3 global moderators
    8 moderators

    that's 53 posts per admin/mod

    Make of that what you will, be please remember admin and moderating is not a paid job.

    Kind Regards Angelical_1

    To be honest, that does sound like too many Moderators. And as someone who has had recent experience with them, they can be a bit heavyhanded here. Every other message board I've been on usually gives a reason why topics are moved, so other people know what is what. Here it's seems to be a haphazard choice. Gay Rappers is a good choice for the Roms section, along with some other strange choices, while my Medal of Honour thread gets moved to the Flash section, even though I'm looking for general opinions about the Rom. All I did was mention that I flashed it.

    KiVan said when this forum first started that you may never be chosen as a mod if you ask him or any other mods. He went on to say that you would be chosen if he thnks that you're ready for the job. Well I think he said that [​IMG]

    Personally I dont care. But as I said, asking will just make your chances more grim, I mean look at this, there are members here that have joined from the very beginning. If anyone needs to be a mod it needs to be someone well known, someone who responds to questions more than just a simple sentence. Some people need details, not "go here yada yada" Some one who is mature and doesnt just want a fancy little medal or something by their name.


    But as I said being a mod has to be a tough choice, You be patient and it might be your turn. But just remember, There are people on here that have join from the beginning not user 1000 but lower who I believe should come first than someone with a 8000 status.

    Yes we all know you do CoolCat your a spamming monkey j/k [​IMG]

    In all honestly. We need to just settle down with the mod things, dont you know how annoying that can be to?

    Be asked every time you log on "can I have this, can I be that"
    I am a admin on CS servers and I am constantly bothered with being asked can I have this can I have that. It gets really annoying and fustrating.

    Just be patient, if they want you, they will come to you.....

    [​IMG] Heh, I always thought that the way to be a mod is to trade the "member medals" into mod ones.. and if you can have enough "mod medals," you get to be have the "site owner/administrator medal", like Kivan! [​IMG] [​IMG] Kinda like a rpg for forums [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Im just saying that the only time that a newer member gets a reply is when someone with more medals than two thinks they know everything.
