Question MTF Admins/Moderators?

How are they chosen and is this a volunteer job?

I don't see anyone actually moderating around here

Maybe we don't have the right people for the job? I don't think I have seen Neely, Jazz Girl or bad gambler around for a while

Re: MTF Admins/Moderators?

Bad Gambler has been on vacation for about 2 days, but he has done ALL KINDS of stuff. Neely also does quite a lot, but more quietly, I think. I've heard that Jazz_girl has been really busy lately. I know that bad gambler wants more mods to be picked soon, they are doing some forum updates and upgrades and whatnot around now, so yeah. I believe that they are chosen by the current mods/admins.

Re: MTF Admins/Moderators?

I don't want to be a mod. That would require me to be an unbiased, neutral observer who has people skills and can hold their tongue, and I can't do it. I just can't do it.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

I think we need some stricter moderators, current ones are maybe too nice and therefore too soft and lenient

oh I know, I was just explaining


As for strictness, I know that Prabu (bad gambler) tried to do a lot of things and was strict with stuff in GM - the strictest MTF has ever had. But there are always gonna people that don't want anyone strict, so someone will always be displeased

MTF has just really gone downhill lately. When I joined in Sept. 2005 it was a great place. In fact, I thought it was so great I became an upgraded member in Feb. of this year.
And now I don't know what has happened, but no one seems to be in charge any more

Re: MTF Admins/Moderators?

I vaguely recalled someone mentioned the site is going over ownership changes so that may explain the lack of administrators here.

Lee great information I hadn't heard anything about that myself, but it could explain a lot of things that are going on. Or maybe I should say it could explain a lot of things that aren't going on

Mae, that information may not be 100% correct though.

You should have been here when it first started in 2002. It was a paradise back then.

I'm glad you posted that Scott so I know it's the truth. But even so with the way things are now around here it is kind of hard to believe
