assistant moderators
« on: November 19, 2004, 03:40:07 AM »
we talked about this in a previous thread, but after DOWNY COOLEY's little run tonight of 169+ posts, i want to bring the idea back:

we should have users be moderators on this board.  and, as before, i nominate myself to be one of the people in this role.  it's frustrating as hell to watch more and more of the last 200 topics be posts from a troll, and if we have a couple regular LSDers moderating, we can stop trolls before it gets as out of hand as it has gotten in the past.  and clearly i'm a good candidate; just look at the number of posts i have.  i spend a ton of time on the board ;)

comments?

I agree as well.

I can't believe that some moron spent his entire night writing over 169 posts about me. Absolutely pathetic.

I second pookie's nomination.

Or I nominate her for the first time, and need a second.

while this is a good idea, pooks, I wouldn't volunteer for the job...  but I think you would make a great mod

desi, do you mean that you personally wouldn't volunteer, or that you wouldn't volunteer if you were me?  if the latter, please explain :)

thanks for the support, guys!  hopefully andrew supports it too :)

DOWNY, did you see the posts?  the troll copy/pasted a bunch of your posts repeatedly.

Yes, still working on this.  Sorry I let the issue drop - there weren't any trolls for a while there.

I nominate the idea of a user getting automatically promoted to assistant moderator when they obtain LSD Obsessed level.

Thanks.  I don't think anyone is ever going to be getting special privileges for posting a certain number of posts.  That would just encourage worthless posts and invite spam.
