Another Birthday Thread

It's clay season, just before RG and the grass season starts up. I think now is probably a good time to revisit the issue of forum moderator, which we originally discussed several months ago.

Many of the player forums here have moderators, people who oversee specific forums (the FAQ's definition of a moderator: they generally have the ability to edit and delete posts, move threads, and perform other manipulations. Becoming a moderator is usually rewarded to users who are particularly helpful and knowledgeable in the subject of the forum they are moderating.)

As we all know, the Roddick forum is one of the most popular player forums at MTF. Being the star that he is, he is subject to not only attracting fans but also lots of trolls, idiots, haters, jerks, and other losers that we experience here on a day-to-day basis. The upcoming grass and hardcourt season will also bring troll season along with it.

So I am putting forth this poll to ask you all here a simple question: do you think we need a forum moderator? Vote yes or no. That's it.

For those who are concerned, be assured that moderators who abuse their power could get in trouble with the MTF administration and have their status revoked. But first I want to see if you guys think a moderator is necessary or not. If the majority answer is "yes", then we will deal with nominations for moderator at a later point.

Please note that trolling or personal attacks in this thread will result in posting priviledges possibly being revoked in the A.R. forum.

Thanks.

"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."

Mister Q.......knows everthing there is to be known in the world Would be fun having him as a moderator
Jace ( Jackson) Would be also great

Re: Another Birthday Thread

i vote yes

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

It is your turn to help - The "Save A Muppet Foundation" needs you!

Re: Another Birthday Thread

This must be because we defy authority and embrace chaos!

Re: Another Birthday Thread

I voted yes but not nominated anyone - coz I don't really know who's who yet (apart from Tangy).

I'm usually anti-censorship but I guess with a forum this big, you can't trust people to get the fact a forum dedicated to a specific player is for fans. It's like going to a Madonna concert because you hate her

It's not about censorship, it's about anti-troll

Re: Another Birthday Thread

Hi allanah Welcome to MTF. I noticed that you bravely stepped into GM and promptly stepped into their bullsh*t. Don't worry, you'll soon learn how to deal with the haters well enough.

And just wait until grass season rolls around, then you'll get a good look at the kind of trolls that invade this place. ugh
