"But what's wrong?" I hear you say in a most unusual pathethic voice.

Well, here's a list you lazy slobs, since apparently you visit the forums once a week:

- Bot02 spamming all over and reviving old shit;
- Bot02 is a reincarnation of Bunnyrabbot02 (who was banned for good reason);
- Pimmin's thread with fair complaints in "Dear Moderators" was entirely ignored;
- Maybe we do need to elect a new mod (Rex_Hollywood?) if you guys can't handle it;
- Damn why am I even having to write this.

I see Jesse active about everywhere, but has ignored the stuff you pointed out here. Same goes for Jasiek. Kitarii never really takes that much action apart from closing some threads, morshem hasn't posted in ages, same goes for Atresica, and that's about it. Darkflame seems also to be ignoring what's going on, and elmuerte has pretty much disappeared from the face of the MBN. The result: this forum is in chaos.
I think we really do need at least one new moderator, and maybe Rex_Hollywood isn't that bad of an idea after all. Or maybe J. McKalling. Or heck, SpaceGuitarist, why not make YOU a moderator? You'd do a nice job, plus you'd cover times like this when noone else is around.

I could do it, but like every other mod suggestion around here, it doesn't get attention from those who are actually in charge of electing a new one: the admins.

Anyone who asks to be a mod is a mod-wannabe.
And anyone who thinks we need more moderation, might want to think twice about whether we want them to police us.

Well I never asked to be one, I'm just upset about the current chaos.

Like a citizen who goes to make justice with his own hands instead of waiting the police to arrive.

If MBN is a town with no sheriff, then I'd gladly take the star badge...

For a programmer, I'm surprised you lack the simplest logic, Jack.

Let's do it programmer style?

line code 01 : sgk complains asking help for mods
line code 02 : obrasilo suggests sgk to be mod
line code 03 : sgk agrees to suggestion
line code 04 : jack claims sgk is a mod wannabe

Can you see which "line code" is wrong?

Anyway, I don't care who is a mod, just as long as the forum is in order.

Now you are just being offensive to me for no reason. I was talking in general, until you mentioned you'd gladly take the star badge of a sheriff (yourself).

Well it really felt it was double-aimed at me, since I am both a "possible mod" and also the person who "thinks we need more moderation", so I felt like defending myself.

Anyway, whatever...

Well, that's the thing, probably. I see your defence frequently lately. Don't feel offended

Personally, I do not think we need more moderators. There's already a lot, and first thing we need, is to stop arguing all the time and think for ourselves, rather than judging everyone all the time. No need for others to tell us that.

I was wondering the same, but didn't want to be "that guy" again.
The fact that some of them were logged in recently (and DF even participated in the programming thread) makes it even sadder.

That'd be my point of view too, sadly, people neglect to think for themselves in a reasonable manner.

DF probably got tired of everyone and everything except what particularly interests him.

I haven't seen anything in the report section when I click "new posts" - Mods dont have the responsibility to check every post of every thread.

If you have a problem report it.

You should know this, so I am kinda baffled by this thread.

Mods however do have responsibility to check what goes in the Dear Moderators and Site Feedback sections.

Well the Dear Moderators section exists with the explict purpose of communicating with the Moderators. And the feedback section is designed to tell the Moderators and Administrators what you do or don't like about the site and forum.

Well, bot02's spam can be seen pretty much everywhere. Guess I should've report them all, Kasia mode.

As for my second complaint, what Battler said: it's already in dear moderators.

One report is enough if its all related. bot02s is pretty clear cut sockpuppeting anyway.

Sure, for discussions and such. But I feel, thats really more about forum complaints in general, or ideas for changes. It doesn't feel like the place to complain about specific people to me.

Aye, complaints about specific users should go in the "Moderator Forum" section, right? Which is only for moderators. Others could get in contact with the mods through pm, if it's about a specific member in general. I believe I read all this somewhere on the forums. Some FAQ, maybe the rules, I forgot.

Since you admit you like to troll, it's just making it hard to know when to take you serious and when not.
