i had a thought, aside the new moderator we will have soon (feral) maybe we should have this:
5 selsected forumers will assemble to a weekly private board meeting, where they will discuss about the forum, if anyone should be banned, if they should stay, etc... and when they decide, they give their anouncments to the Moderators. like a congress.

I have to wonder: Would you hate this idea if, perchance, you weren't one of the 5 members?

Would you demand that 6 members is more democratic?

However, I look forward to the development of this idea with great expectations of amusement. Hope it pans out for you.

democratic would be if there was no congress. i mean, we dont need a congress, just make a vote (like feral's mod vote) and everyone votes once.

congress are for situations when there are millions of ppl, and it would take a lot of time to vote. bsides, in the congress, each person would have to represent a group of ppl.

Well I know who that person was, I hope that person doesn't mind that the other person told me http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smilies/smile.gif Besides, I didn't mention any names, I hope the person doesn't take it the wrong way- but I think a lotta people woulda been unhappy that a 'newbie' was offered a mod position over people who have been here for ages, even though I'm sure that person woulda made a great mod http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smilies/smile.gif

Some of the other forums I've been to have a "Moderators Only" forum, a place where various mods can discuss current situations of the forums, possible trouble makers, new features, etc., and then come up with a collective decision on what's to be done, or just to settle some minor differences of opinion between mods.

I think it would be good to have such a forum, where even the viewing of contents require mod status. This way, any arguments among the mods stay only between the mods, as to not cause worry among regular members.

Until we get a forum like that, though, we could always make use of the "Private Message" system...

That sounds cool to me, so essentially, the mods discuss issues with each other, and then does that mean that you, NFGB and Zero are the senate? http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smilies/tongue.gif I don't really get it, I think it's a cool idea, but I just don't get how it can work on a forum

it would work just fine on a forum...all the new mods get to gether on an issue and discuss what should be done......when we all reach a verdict we carry out justice.........editing posts.....warnings whatever it may be.........if the nuscience gets to cruel for the forum and our verdict is to ban we run that across Zero and hell be the judge

Not that I'm involved way to the administration of these forums, but I must say that having a Mods-only forum is probably the best thing that ever happened to the MI Legend forums.

It's a great way to make sure all the mods are on the same page, so to speak, about what to edit, move, delete, lock, and it's also a place where we (the MI legend mods and site staff) can discuss confidential matters such as the openings of other forums.

Anyway, you may already have this, being that I wouldn't be able to see it if you did; if not, you should give it serious thought.
