Well the whole volunteer mods program has been in place for long enough to see how it works. So far I don’t think it’s as bad as it could have been and it’s certainly better then the sorry state it was in, so I’ll give it a 7/10.

 

Any other opinions?

It's a trap.

 

Sorry Jabster, but this is not really gameplay related, although I am sure my fellow mods and I (not forgetting the little furry creatures from Alpha Centauri) do appreciate your sentiments, I have to move this to Off-topic.

It was bad, but I think it's gone too far the other way now.

I've seen posts either be locked or moved for one reason or another when they were actually fine :child:

Imo forum became a better place.

Also it's against the forum rules to discuss moderation actions:P

Thoughts?  Mods are particularly good at kicking topics into the long grass known as "off-topic".  :)

I don't like one of the fat ones. And the one with that weird eye worries me. :(

A couple are a bit over zealous but overall I think it's going well, certainly way better than before

I really don't see how the second most active sub forum is sending something into obscurity.  Plus we now leave a redirect in the original forum (if we remember to tick the box:unsure:).

It turns out there are some quite differing opinions as to how the forum should be run and when moderators should step in.

And others think we are too lenient.

As long as we stay away from anything too specific then I certainly have no problem with this thread.

One thing I would ask is who’s in charge of the mods now?

The CM team.

If you’re talking about this is being moved to off topic then I’d probably agree. Saying that it is a hard one as you have to get the balance right between not being totally draconian and not allowing the gameplay forum to be overrun with OT threads.

 

My one criticism is that does seem to be a slight lack of consistency between the mods in this area.

There is a huge inconsistency in what the forumites want as well. ;)

For the CM’s part, are we just supposed to contact one at random and hope for the best. Do they perform the same role as the head moderator we had in the past.

 

For the inconsistency, well yeh posters are going to have that but surely mods should try not to otherwise we get back to the BBV era.

I'm sure you know which ones are most active in the English section. And yes.

In all seriousness I’m not sure I’d trust any of the CM that pop into English forum. If their role isn’t to oversee forum moderation why would I?

 I wasn't reffering about it being moved, wasn't aware it had been, and yes its a hard balancing act for them.

Sorry I meant "this" as in a general "this" not this specific thread.
