Vod, Jet Cash and The Pharmacist were great choices too. We all know that they really hate shitty posters, they are very strict and do not tolerate any kind of disobedience especially coming from those newbies out there.
Yes, but my guess is that as a mod none of us would have any real power because of Theymos's emphasis on "freedom".  I would love to nuke posts and threads left and right, but I wouldn't be allowed to do that.  It would end up being a frustrating experience with little reward, and it would probably kill my enjoyment of the forum.

I'd be interested to know what the newest staff members think about the job.  Welsh is relatively new, I think, and Flying Hellfish hasn't been a mod all that long.  I wonder how their experiences have been.

Thanks for the kind words guys, but I would be a very bad choice for a mod. My idea of fredom of speech is that people have the freedom to make their speeeches somewhere else if I don't like them.

I'm also extremely erratic in my behaviour. I would like to do somewthing to help the forum, but I don't think I can commit to a regular occupation.

Putting these things to a vote is futile. Those who are most popular amongst the community may not be the best person for the job (nor want it) and as others have mentioned theymos probably pays little to no attention to them. If he was going to add new mods then he is the one who has the most relevant stats for that and they should be largely chosen by who is reporting the most and most frequently (somebody who has ten thousand reports but hasn't reported anything in months probably isn't going to be a better choice than someone who has reported a few thousand in the past few months etc). If you want a shot at becoming a mod then keep reporting and maybe one day you'll get chosen, but at least you'll help the board out in the process.

I think this thread illustrates the crux of the issue.  Everyone thinks there should be more moderators, but few actually want to be the moderators.  It's a really tough one.  This may just be a case of waiting for the right candidates to present themselves, so maybe don't give theymos too much of a hard time about it if you aren't volunteering your own time to improve the situation.

You have reported 89 posts with 98% accuracy (80 good, 2 bad, 7 unhandled)

I can't even get the few that I have reported right.

Turn the concept of a "mod" round, and make them into "doms" and I might be up for it. Smiley

I think this illustrates more that the community isn't necessarily a good barometer of who to make a mod (except maybe in local boards where the most active users are probably amongst the best choices and are often put to votes there). I'm also sure there's plenty of people who want to me mods here, and those who have reported insane amounts would be a good place to start. Theymos should probably post the updated report table again and then maybe we can discuss who might be the best choice there. Hopefully he can post the one by board as well so we can see who would make ideal sub board mods.

If people are reporting 10,000 or more posts, then the problem is not in the mod'ing, but lies elsewhere.

I was wondering about that too: he's still Staff, but no longer listed as Moderator on any of the Dutch local boards.

However, freedom of speech didn't mean that we should be allowed unlimited freedom of speech. We all have to accept the consequences of our works as well. The problem here that I see is @theymos still confusing to determine where he should draw the line for free speech. As for my observation its already crossed the border where it actually should be.

Freedom of speech includes the right of sensible speakers to be heard, and not have their words drowned out by the bleating of the sheep.

Based on my own opinion and observation, for me, if it's just based on being active and humble. I nominate,
  • jet cash
  • suchmoon
for that place.

Let's say there's someone on this list have the ability or perfectly fit for being a mod but not really active? So he/she doesn't do his/her duties being mod if he's /she's not active.
When it comes in choosing i'm just base if they are active and humble in their work,  and that's i saw with jet cash and suchmoon.
But I'm not saying all the names written on the list are not active.
They are active, but i saw and much convince the will of determination of the two.

He is probably a patroller now, because he is not the mod for Project Development too.
Some people on the list aren't active enough or they are a little too biased to be a mod.

I'd also vote foxpup, he's an Active reporter. TheQuin and TryNinja know a lot about the forum, so wouldn't mind nominating them either.

It's not likely that theymos will appoint mod based on a poll results. But still, I vould like to share my opinion based on what I see on Bitcointalk. krishnapramod would be a great mod, he made a lot of good reports. LoyceV and Iasenko would be a great choice. They are great at reporting and catching spam bots. I'm not sure about few other guys mentioned here. Some don't want or just don't have time to be a mod, others aren't reporting posts. How you can appoint mod who don't have big number of reported posts.
Anyway, appointing new mods can make situation better only a little. Having a lot of mods is only a fight with consequences of spam, something has to be done to remove reasons of spam.

My experience has been fine. There's been very little interaction between myself, and theymos. I think he pointed out something in my early days, and there hasn't  been any other communication regarding he moderation itself. There isn't too many restrictions, however I normally only use the nuke button when I'm absolutely sure that they deserve it. I probably am a little more lenient than a lot of people would be.

It's been fine though. I find dealing with reports therapeutic just like actively reporting was.

Giving LoyceV the nuke button is a no-brainer. I think he's pretty high up in the reporting stats too, but that's not the full story. Now it goes like this: LoyceV's script catches suspects -> someone needs to verify and report them -> moderators need to review and nuke. Seems to me like cutting out the middleman (or woman) and the hassle of reporting would be a benefit.

I now have the easy part: it's very easy to spit out hundreds of accounts that can probably be nuked. When I report them post by post I make sure I'm certain they should be nuked, but actually verifying hundreds of accounts is much more work.

What's your good report percentage? I bet it's 99 or 100, in which case having a mod re-verify your work is probably pointless.

That's what I have suggested, just cut the middle man (or women) in "Nuke chain" like block chain. Smiley

He is already willing to accept that job seriously and give this man his "Nuke button"

Its 99%, but the forum rounds up.

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.
