Default Election of Moderators

After some serious though about some of the moderator on this site; I think it is time that MTF has some democracy. Numerous people have problems every day with the moderators, some do there job and get along with everyone, therefore everyone likes them. However some of them it seems like some time go out of their way to annoy you, and make your presence of this web site seem so bad. Shouldn't MF have some type of an election of moderators every new year? Don't you think that this would e the best way to make everyone happy. Okay, so here is what I am proposing...

1. Every moderator has their moderator status taken away, only for one week, or how long the vote is (All Administrators, Web Masters, etc. keep theirs obviously)
2. One week on MTF every year in a week in December every member gets to vote for a Moderator for one area, or several for ATP events, and bigger areas of this site.
3. After the election the votes re counted, the people that are elected are asked if they would like to be a moderator, if they decline then the person who came in second for that thread is asked and so on.
4. The next year in December this whole process happens all over again.

Please let me know what you think; or if you have something to add or change in the plan, I think this is a great idea!

VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Default Re: Election of Moderators

Now that I think about it, it would be a bit' hectic if we had all new moderators for a month, trying to learn the way of moderating. Maybe Each section is up for a new election like 3x a year or each section is up for election every three years, so there would not be a totally new moderating crew every year at the same time.

What would it change to have new moderators frequently? Do you really expect that their decisions wouldn't cause new discussions? It's a neverending circle. It would be way better to try to solve the problem you have with a moderator with him/her directly or - when it doesn't work - contact one of the administrators on this site.

But that's just my opinion and maybe you will find people who will support your suggestion.

Yes, maybe elect new moderators every three years? Something, but I think that MTF needs democracy.

Also, I see how people would have new problems with new moderators and yes it will be a never ending circle, but at least with the election more people will have less problems with the moderators.

There is no way to please everyone. Denaon himself has recently said he didn't realize how difficult it was to be a moderator until he became one. Anyway, I don't think this would be feasible, but that's just my opinion and also, player forum mods are chosen by the regular posters of that forum. So, several of us are only mods because other MTF posters 'elected' us.

It was in the thread about Raging Lamb and to remove him as a moderator.

Yes, it is easy to say it is not possible, but something like this would not be hard, creating a poll an voting. I think democracy is the way the moderators should be chosen, not just by administrators and web masters (Except for player forums of course.)

Sorry, I don't agree. This isn't a public thing, like a country's election. MTF is a privately-owned board and the people who own the board certainly should have the right to decide who is maintaining their investment. It would be hard, because every new group of moderators would want to change the rules, and it would be utter chaos if the rules completely changed here every few months.

Yes, but I am proposing that administrators and web masters and all people above moderators keep their position. Moderators did not start MTF nor do they own it. The election should come once every four years, so each year a new section (General Forum, Player Forum, Upcoming Tournaments, Other Tournaments) has an election. There is no chaos here because only one section is up for a re election every 4 years.
