I think voting is the best way to show popularity to theymos.
I don't think popularity is a good measure for Mod skills. Reporting skills are a much better measure, and theymos knows that already.
During the time I was a Mod at Rollin, being a good Mod did not make me popular. If someone breaks the rules, a Mod takes Mod action, and the user blames the Mod.

Exactly my thought. If anything moderators become less popular by the masses, and are only appreciated by those that care about the forum. Otherwise, users just look to blame them. Look at all the moderators, and I can bet almost all of them have had a thread about them where a user is blaming them for an action they took on one of their posts.

They gather a nice collection of red trust. There is also some surprising information in there as well. For example, I didn't know that Welsh used a hacked account. Smiley Smiley

I mean, I had no idea that so many of our staff and DT members were ass-lickers, douchebags and motherfuckers. Thankfully, all these newbies were kind enough to enlighten me.

Don't forget rappers/rapers (ie rapists).

It's seems most of potential member's thought is same. Personally I believe theymos could consider members suggestion. So many name came out from individual members. I think voting is the best way to show popularity to theymos. At least we can try. Perhaps thread will locked today and I will pick nominated names for voting. If some one want suggest more name , feel free to write here.


We don't know about theymos think but we can try it.

Read the posts in this thread for why it isn't a good idea. How is being popular a good quantifier for a position as a moderator? The least popular may be the best suited for the position. Do you give jobs based on how popular people may or may not be? No, you base them on who is more qualified.

Agree with you. Since we are not able to see who is the best reporter, we can just present few names to theymos. So theymos will able to picked the name who is qualified ( if he want ) . I just want to show that forum member wondering for new moderators so that theymos could change his mind. You can say just remind him by this way and I believe he will consider that.

He's been reminded more than enough times about the various issues here and that includes making new moderators or at least assigning current ones to the sub boards that need them. Nothing else we can do other than hope that he gets around to it. Adding or assigning new mods requires little effort from him and the benefits will be immediate and require no further assistance from him and it's something he could do today if he really wanted so it should be made a priority. I'm sure he knows that workload needs to be distributed and he gave me the list of top reporters a couple of months ago so he just actually has to use that info now.

Unless of course you're running for POTUS, that kind of job is currently reserved for a special kind of unqualified!

Well you've just exposed the flaw in democracy right there.

That's what exactly I was thinking and your fingers were faster than me. Being popular means like two sides of a coin. It can be positive as well as negative. Take digaran as a example. He is very popular in the forum sometimes popular than most of the good reporters. Does it mean that he has suited for the Mod position? No. At the end of the day @theymos is the only one who decides which member/s most suited as our next Mod/s whether we liked or not. I'm pretty sure he will take the right decision but the problem is when?

Another suggestion I would like to mention is there should be "ghost mods" whose names didn't appear under their usernames. Being unnoticed is the best way to do your job seriously and without carrying a nice collection of red trust as @Jet Cash already mentioned. If my memory serves well this "ghost mod" concept is already suggested by the forum member, unfortunately, I didn't remember the name.  


Agree with you. Since we are not able to see who is the best reporter, we can just present few names to theymos. So theymos will able to picked the name who is qualified ( if he want ) .

If you put @theymos at the beginning of the subject, he will answer in this thread for your and other members suggestions. Because I have seen that @iasenko has tasted the sweet taste of being answered by theymos twice by doing that little trick Smiley

Excuse me Wink Maybe it is not bad to nominate a particular name that is not listed in OP's list. theyoungmillionaire is really qualified to become one of the moderators in our local section. The evidence was said by pugman that theyoung have reported 16k cases of shitposting and spamming in this community. Maybe he can start moderating our local helping rickbig41 and Dabs.

But then again, theymos is the only person who will decide whether there will be an appointment of new moderators.
