    I'm not getting this at all. Call me late to the party. More unisom and I don't have a clue why I'm not able to sleep but ready to break out a two shot of Nyquil but are we discussing flacaternn sp? Great mod. Gave me a warning about some comment I made and we ended up in a really good discussion about what should be posted or what should not.

    Excellent conversation. Great mods on this board. But this one will engage and I appreciate that.

    Mod hell? I lived it. Picture it. Small town. I thought I'd help out the new message board. OMG! These people were freaking animals.

    I've been a boarder for a couple of decades. These people went wild. HuffPo would have banned them in two freaking seconds.

    So I'm the new mod. But because it was a Christian board I wasn't allowed to ban anyone. Holy toledo all I wanted after the first 24 hours was mega smiting.

    It was a nightmare. I appreciate moderators and how they deal with all of us. My hair was on fire for at least the first week.

    Bless your mods and hold them close to your heart.

    Your enthusiasm is admirable as is your concern for the welfare of USMB.

    Actually, what I wanted was for there to be more communication between the mods and everyone else. I think this newsletter that flacaltenn suggested may be the best option.

    This strikes Me as the 'inmates wanting to run the asylum' kind of notion. Or employees who think they can do a better job at running the company, only to run it into the ground within five years.

    Who cares how they reach their decisions? You have two choices. Abide by their decision, or leave. This is the way it works.

    How to send Narc Furry into a meltdown: Come up with a better idea for getting a bit of token power on someone else's board.

    Phoenyx, you're a star!


    This from the guy that tried a coup d'etat in the Flame Zone while Mani was gone.

    The Flame Zone.




    (yeah, I know...#inbeforethelock)

    No.

    I'm okay with the concept in a high-school newspaper kind of way, but it really won't do anything but add to the bandwidth usage. That is, for a few weeks, after which it will be abandoned.

    I had a more useful idea, which has already been shot down: a sort of mini maudes to tidy up the site and help with the flow. They'd merge all the tons of threads on a single topic into a few, move threads into the appropriate forum, block/delete the spambots, all that kind of thing. Also they'd act not as ambassadors, that's way too lofty sounding, more like lackeys, to clarify unwritten rules, temp-lock out-of-control threads until a mod can review, thread-ban trolls until a mod can review, and so on.

    I think 'lackey' should be their official title. All are mod-appointed.


    Adding this in, unrelated:
    The attachment is quite a few years old and was written to show how shill sites like Above Top Secret, Godlike Productions, and Infowars operate.

    It has nothing at all to do with Hillary.

    Maybe I can trade in some of my "Trophy Points" to buy an Ambassadorship

    More communication between Mods and Everyone Else????

    That's rather like asking for More Audits by the IRS or More Cavity Searches by the TSA.



    No thanks.
