Forum Moderator Needed

Hello Fellow U.S. Tennis Fans :wavey:

Don't you think its time that we have a moderator in this area :shrug: I am not talking about in the Sub-Forums for players like for Roddick, Blake, etc. I am talking about the threads that anyone can start. It would be nice to clean up this area a bit', and not still have the threads for players that have their own 'Sub-Forum.' So I am writing to Neely, SloKid, Denaon, and ~*Carlita*~ to ask to become a moderator for this area. If you would please vote yes for me in the poll that is going along with this thread, along with your ideas. Don't worry, I am not promising things I won't do. Also, I promise I won't delete any posts or threads with out a P.M. to you before it gets deleted. I am open to all suggestions, and hope that you will also write to Neely, SloKid, Denaon, and ~*Carlita*~ telling them that I would be suitable for the job.

~ Greg :wavey:

I am pretty active in this forum, I report things that need cleaning up to the supermods. I don't think we need another mod here. And that is not the way it works anyway.

But if I got it, it would make me want to do more in this area. Like posting the players info, news, stats, match time, score, etc.

Also, you would not have to look through threads all of the time, and the SuperMods would not have to worry about deleting them. I would be much easier.

I think Mens Clay Court has a great idea. This area is kind of sloppy and American tennis is very popular. MCC will be a great mod and so much more could come from this. American players will become better-known and better publicized. I am a big U.S. tennis fan but I have to check each thread for results and stuff or do it on my own. Im sure MCC could make a bug chat thread for all the U.S. players. This will be MUCH better for this forum!!

it's not up to a forum moderator to make a forum fun, it's to clean up clutter (of which the Team USA forum has almost none) and enforce the rules (of which team USA Forum almost never has any problems) . Make a big chat thread if you wan we don't need a moderator for that, do stuff to get the players known if you want, we don't need a moderator to do that either.

Plus, this is not how moderators are selected anyway - either the supermods decide that a particular forum needs moderating, or for the player forums it is done by the posters - but first, the posters decide if there is any need for a mod AT ALL, then they vote on who it should be.

Also, if you were a mod of the Team USA section, you'd also be a mod of all of the player sub-forums. And at this point, Andy's forum is the only one who needs a mod and I don't think I need any help really. So this is nothing against you, but I don't think the section needs a mod at all, and even if the mods decided it did, I imagine they would just add one of the current members of the team to the section.

You just came onto Greg for having a great idea. You should support him. Who cares if we have an extra mod?(you do actually) Greg wants to be a mod badly and he would do a phenominal job with it.

Deboogle!.
03-27-2009, 09:25 PM
I did not come onto him. I told him how it works. It is a simple matter of fact that you don't just PM the supermods and get to be a mod, you do not get to start a poll in a forum and get to be a mod if there are more yes votes than no (especially since the poll was started by Greg himself and is not public).

Greg and I have exchanged friendly messages in the past and he knows I am here to help - in the past I have been the only mod to even answer his questions. That doesn't give you the right to disrespect my gender or mock me, nor does it mean you are correct in saying if I care if we have an extra mod (which I do NOT care, so sorry, you're wrong). I'm not being rude, but it doesn't matter if Greg wants to be a mod badly, and it doesn't even matter if he'd do a phenomenal job with it. It matters if we need it. The supermods will determine that, I won't. But I am pretty confident in what they'll decide, and I was expressing that. Would you, or he, rather I lie? You can't just ignore how things at MTF have always been done just because he wants it badly. And there's definitely no need to start laying into me about it and being rude and completely mocking me. It doesn't help anyone and despite what you think, I am NOT the enemy.

Goodness guys seriously now. Cmon I said i was sorry to Deb. But all of you need to chill out and respect Greg's idea. I think it would be great to have a hard-working mod who would do nothing but help this forum. I love US tennis and having a mod who not make that any worse. What would it hurt?? Greg knows what needs to be done. If he doesn't do a good job, just get rid of him. I seriously doubt that would happen. Only good could come out of this.

I think what people are trying to show you guys is that you can post and all that and make this a fun place without being a mod :shrug:

I would say that you *should* be doing that before you can ever expect to be made one. I made the Djokovic forum a fun place, and that is why I was chosen by my peers to represent us.

You guys just have the order of things wrong, that's all. You don't become a mod, and then make a forum great... you make a player forum great and THEN become a mod.

If you guys think you have some great ideas you can make them happen without a silly title :)

Thanks Jess, that's it exactly.

Greg, if you honestly care about this forum and the players represented here then get involved first. Becoming a mod is a reward for work done and respect earned, it is not something that you show up and demand out of the blue. That's kind of like showing up on your first day at work as the McDonalds french fry cook and demanding to be the manager.

Okay, I see where you are coming from. But, if I do a ton of work, and really get this area going, what happens if people like Deb come in and say we don't need one. I don't want to do a ton of work, and then when I ask to become one, people say there is no need for one.

Well if there's no need for one, there's no need for one. Being a moderator can't be your only motivation for this because then there is still a large possibility you leave disappointed still.

You need to be doing this for the right reasons... which would be for making the forum more active and more fun, which is what you want, not because of any personal gain.

Not every forum has a moderator, not every forum needs one. Put in the work for making a great forum because you want to enjoy it. If the absolute only reason you would do it is to become a moderator some day, honestly, you're not doing it for the right reasons, so don't even bother :shrug:

03-28-2009, 02:37 AM
Greg, I think you're misunderstanding the purpose of a moderator. A moderator does not make a place busy or fun or good. a moderator fixes problems :lol: the andy forum didn't have a moderator for a long time. When I first joined MTF there were maybe only a handful of people who even posted there, but as MTF grew and Andy got more hated on MTF, we started having trolling problems, spam, people coming in and saying mean stuff. THAT's when we got a mod. I think you are romanticizing being a moderator as if it's something it's not. It's not fun. It's actually really annoying most of the time. I like being a mod of the Andy forum b/c I feel like I can protect us in there and try to keep the forum a fun and friendly place, but I'd rather not have to deal with the crap that sometimes comes up. It's not fun to warn people, especially when it's people you generally like. It's not fun to delete people's posts and merge their threads and ask them to be nice.

If you were to do whatever you have in mind to get the Team USA forum more active, and then if some time down the road, it got so busy to the point where people were causing trouble, then I would absolutely say, OK now it is time for a moderator. But an awful lot has to happen before then. If you do a ton of work, but this part of the forum still stays drama-free and whatnot, then there will never be a need for a moderator here. And a few merging of threads or stickies here and there is not enough to need a moderator, because the supermods are more than happy to do those kinds of things for us.

My advice to you would be to stop putting your energy into becoming a mod and put it into whatever work you have in mind here. If you truly care about making the Team USA forum a busy place, then seeing its success should be the only thing you need. Perhaps now that you understand what mods actually do a bit more, you will see it's maybe not what you thought at all.

And for now there really is no need for a Team USA mod. No need to fix something if it ain't broke ;)

I can verify how hungry you were to get the moderator job. When the forum first voted not to have a moderator you were extremely chagrined to put it mildly, and then excluded the people who didn't want a moderator from voting for a moderator the second time around because you thought they might not vote for you. Oh, true, you didn't do that yourself. You had Tangy do it for you the explanation being that the long time members of the forum who didn't saw no reason for a moderator had no interest in who was moderator. Now, it appears from what you say that you are "acting moderator" for the USA forum and make sure things are running smoothly there. The ironic thing is that you are now making the argument I made a few years ago: The forum doesn't need a moderator.

I doubt that the USA forum needs a moderator. But I think that's true of most of the forums. It wasn't as if the Roddick forum was running amok before there was a moderator either.

You even admit that you're just assuming that I "had tangy" do something for me. That's ridiculous, and it's patently untrue, but I don't expect you to accept that. I don't imagine that Tangy would be pleased to know that you are projecting your distaste for me onto her and basically saying she is too weak to act on her own and just listened to what I was telling her behind the scenes. I like tangy just fine, but she and I are hardly close enough to where she would act on my behalf or take my orders.

Now, it appears from what you say that you are "acting moderator" for the USA forum and make sure things are running smoothly there. The ironic thing is that you are now making the argument I made a few years ago: The forum doesn't need a moderator.Excuse me? Where did I say this? Oh wait, I didn't. I am not "acting moderator" at all and I said nothing to suggest that. Once or twice I have asked the supermods to get rid of a spam thread and maybe once or twice I have asked for threads to be merged. But I know that other people - non-moderators - have asked for similar things and have reported posts as well. I know you think you have me all figured out, but please do not put words into my mouth and thoughts into my head. You didn't think we had a need for an Andy forum, fine. I don't think that the Team USA forum - which has maybe 10 sporadically active posters at the moment - needs one now. They are hardly the same so I don't see how you can analogize the two. But that's fine if you think it's the same thing, I'm not going to quibble about it with you. If you have issues with me still after all these years, I am sorry for that. But I will not allow you to continue making up lies about me and smearing me through the mud to anyone who might listen.

You will continue to believe whatever you want, but what happened in regards to the Andy forum moderator stuff is quite clear in the threads that are still easily accessible in the Andy forum.

No, I thought me and you were like best friends :shrug:

No, and I have no idea why you would think that (if you are being serious, which I doubt).


Everything that you have asked for in your PM is completely unnecessary. No one cares about dead threads, and they don't slow the forum down. I am really beginning to wonder if you want to be a mod here so you can put it on a homemade business card and pass it out to your friends or something.

Everything that you have asked for in your PM is completely unnecessary. No one cares about dead threads, and they don't slow the forum down. My thoughts exactly. In some forums there are 100's of threads and no one seems to care about them. Besides, what's the difference between closing them and not using them? :confused: They would still be here....:shrug: only with a lock on them. Every player forum has dead threads, it happens, they just flow to the back pages of the forum, which is fine.

My 2 cents:
1. If we go by the poll results alone, you don't have anywhere near the support needed, on the contrary. Anyway that is not how moderators are chosen, yes, there have been polls in the past, but it was not done by a single poster nominating themselves and starting a poll with them as only option.
2. With your recent PM on which threads need to be closed, you've clearly shown you don't know how this forum functions, therefore demonstrating you don't have what it takes to be a mod. Btw. if threads are closed or not has no real effect on the servers.
3. Having your friend here insult people opposing your proposal isn't helping either. In general this thread has turned ugly and therefore I'm closing it and with it this whole issue.
