View Full Version : We need another damn mod

It's really been unfair for es156 to have had to shoulder the load all these years, but after the shennanigans of the Tom Warrior/beyondtheblack thread, it's unarguable.

We need another mod.

I nominate Natrhi. He's the most responsible out of all of us.

Edit: Not to say that thread didn't serve a purpose.

I think we need someone who has been here a very long time. Not that I don't think Nat would be good but I don't believe he's been here terribly long.

Edit: I'd nominate either Manks or Ravenheart.

I would nominate him too, I met him a while back at a Primus concert and he seemed really level headed, he is also active so that is a plus.

Nat is the obvious choice, but he only comes on here like once a week at best :(

manks can be serious when he wants to be but he's too much of a smartass to be a mod

maybe powerslave

maybe Brad, but he doesn't come on here as much as he used to

what about you, JRA? you've been here a while

I think maybe he wants the job... he popped in that thread last night just to say something like "Can't wait to see this thread get locked" :lol:

We should have an election for a new mod. I'll run myself. Here's the script for my campaign ad:

I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a metalhead, but you don't need to post on MS every day to know there's something wrong with this forum when Magson13 can openly post in Mis-info but our posters can't openly troll psychotic women or play UNO at shows.
As moderator, I'll end Eric's war on the lulz. And I'll fight against mayhem board kid attacks on our trve heritage.
Lulz made Metal Set Lists strong. It can make her strong again.
I'm Bloodofthekings and I approve this message.

woah, es156 does a great job as moderator. We just need to be better to him so he doesn't have to deal with shit like last night. Yes, we call got a good laugh and will be talking about it for a year or so, but we don't need to do that to him. If we get a new mod, then it would be unfair to have the same thing happen to that person. Lets just not even consider this and just do a better job to not let situations like last night happen often.

The fact that I don't even know what thread you guys are talking about shows that es156 is taking care of things in a timely manner.

I wasn't serious at all. I just decided to do a Rick Perry parody and since eric is the one being discussed I replaced Obama's name with his. I think eric is a great mod and we don't need a new one.

I agree unless he wanted another so he doesn't have to be the only one who has to do stuff.

50+ pages of absurdity that transpired over a 10-12 hour period last night. It's gone now.

beyondtheblack (OP, also gone now) actually deleted several pages of her posts before es156 got to it, so it would have been largely incomprehensible anyway.

I agree on means entirely separate from need, ie threads not being deleted fast enough, etc. I think it just makes a lot more sense so that we don't have unnecessary duty placed upon one person, making him do all of the work so we all can just fuck around. I think it makes sense to have another person watching over things.

More that I can't now read it. It sounds too stupid for me to have gotten involved, from the scraps being mentioned in other threads.

I would assume because it basically just turned into back and forth name calling and insulting, which I'm sure es156 wants to discourage. Also possibly because it involved personal matters of which not everyone involved was present to approve for discussion.

That and she made it clear Tom would file a law suit on her if she ever released that information to the public.

Also, I appreciate the sentiments of the couple of folks who threw my name out there - and I would be humbled and glad to oblige since I truly do love this place, but my presence as of late has been pretty intermittent so clearly it wouldn't be in the best interests of the forum for me to accept - at least not nowadays anyway.

As much as I truly hate Manks with every fiber of my being, he'd clearly be a decent choice since he pretty much lives here anyway. ;)

SomewhereInTime72
12-17-2011, 09:02 PM
I would agree that we need an additional mod, because I don't really think it's fair to have one guy do everything (even though he does a fantastic job imo). If I could nominate one, I'd nominate that our old mods come back here more often...:(

So the only person who can actually add a new mod doesn't give a shit and never comes here. :tp: Great.

Dextrimental
12-18-2011, 11:21 AM
Honestly, there's at least a dozen of us who are here everyday, practically without fail. Virtually any of them would do as a mod, just picking someone who wouldn't abuse the power and who knows the forum really well is the only hard part. Manks is an obvious choice, or JRA, Dethmaiden, Maiden33, Ravenheart.. It doesn't bother me who gets picked, but a second mod would take the load off Eric.

I don't actually see why we need a new mod.
This Tom Warrior thing happened over the course of one night and by the next day it was gone.
That's like...the extent of problems here.
Have you guys been on other forums? This is way more controlled than most I've been on.

Pretty much what I've been thinking this whole time. Very few topics get locked here in comparison to other forums. Most of the time this is a respectable place. And if Eric wanted another mod, I'm sure he would have asked someone himself.

Having been a part of some shithole forums, this is by far one of the best I've been on in terms of behavior, spam, etc. This place has been running fine with just the one mod. Don't fix what ain't broke.
