Do the mojo news updaters become mods on there specific news topic?

I.E. I would be Star Wars, as thats what I know about, although I post about everything.

it is a very interesting question:

How does a single person become a mod, how many years of existance and active posting on the mixnmojo boards, and what quality posts do we, single members have to achieve to be honoured with such a great gift of Moderating?

i guess it just depends on who you know and how you ask, after all, if it turns out to be a mistake you can just be taken off again so there's no problem with being given a trial

why not ask?

Now I ask: when can I be a mod, and how do I have to work to stay as a mod?

Noticed that this post only contains up to four-lettered words... ?

well you'd have to ask spaff, not me, but to stay as a mod you just have to prove that you can keep your particular forum neat and looked after - oh and dont go banning everyone who doesn't agree with you ;)

I think Remio and myself will be asking some regulars from the old board to mod. and then Remio will head the moderation team and appoint new mods.. or something

Heh, thanks for the tip and I am never gonna, seize Metallus, or any kind of stuff like murdering, etc. Maybe I just could make him broke, and a pennyless insane man, LeChuck could make it, why not continue with Metallus. Oh sorry, and also no ads, etc. Anyway I would never kick Metallus if he holds what he told me about the rules:)

"Can I be an operator?"
No.
"Can I be an operator please?"
No.
"Can I be an operator pretty pretty pretty pretty please with sugar on top???"
No. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

You have no idea how painful that was for me then. Fortunately for you, it looks like Spaff might actually accept some moderators here :D

yeah look on the bright side, i mean if someone like me can become an admin, with total absolute power over everyone - then you're in for a very good chance

...actually that's quite a disturbing thought, be afraid

Ben, you just don't get it. What happened between you and I on the escapemi boards is over with. The further you decide to bicker with me, the further you will fall into the community's disfavor. Also, you're not going to be a mod. Accept this fact.

now look, this forum is only a few days old and there's already trouble brewing, i don't know what all this is about but there's to be no bollocks of any kind on this board *flexes his mental muscle*

So talk about something else

Oh sorry, I don't know what to do, I can't be anybody, or myself, I don't know how far can I go, or what should I do, it really creeps me out, luike when I don't sharpen pencil enough I can't write with it, and when I sharpen it too much, the head quickly disappears, only problem is that the sharpener won't sharpen moderately.

Being a moderator is no job for a man. Real men don't eat quiche ...and they don't moderate forums. ;)

**Takes a big mouthful of quiche-lorraine** Just kidding, guys.

Being a mod isn't that particualy exciting- I'm a mod on escapemi, but maybe it's coz I mod the old school (the old MI games) in which nothing ever happens it seems so boring :p

Benjoyce- I personally don't think you'd be a good mod, I mean look at the incident with Metallus, you accused him of stalking you or some crap, and being abusive and all that when he never did such thing- you just seem like a trouble maker (maybe not intentionally, but you need to watch what you say)

I post reguarly at 3 forums. I mod them all. The eescapemi forums (Also Old School - :( ), The Unnoficial Broken Sword 3 forums (All of it, currently down) (http://bs3.escapemi.com) and the Broken Sword Zone forums (Currently down, and the new site design is being coded now) (http://www.bszone.f2s.com). Pretty hard stuff.

I wouldn't say "hard". The only disadvantage is: you don't have the option of ignoring certain posts that you know are drek, or otherwise pointless. You have to check everything--looking for abusive behavior, language, and the occasional advocation of warez.

Other than that, it's just like being a regular member.

The only thing with old school is you get to only really close posts or delete posts of people who are asking where they can get the games on abandonware- at least if I was modding the Harbor or Clues and Hints I'd have soooooo much fun in closing down topics from trouble makers :D Coz most of the trouble makers reside in the Harbor and Clues and Hints :D

Honestly, I don't care who becomes an admin. I'd like to be one, but if I'm not I'm not gonna beg for it. Also, BJ (benjoyce for the slow ones, like him), stop trying to start fights with Metallus. Just leave him alone and he will leave you alone. It's that simple.

I'm admin on 2 forums and mod on 2 others (Lucas art fangames, BSBC, Double 'ard monkey, and fester's tiny shop) It is impossible. You spend most of your time on line reading every post on all the topics and never get around to attachly posting something your self. The one advantage of beging a mod or admin is that people give you respect but if you're already popular (Not me! :D ) You'll just have more work to do.



END!

Respect - People don't respect you cause you're a mod. I'm a mod on the milegend and even though most people respect me there are still a few who try to start fights with you. Most people just treat you like a normal person and that's what you are really, only you can edit, delete and move their posts. I'm also an admin on my own site - http://www.brimstone.77th.com

Thanks :)
