Who would you choose??

This is from the blog that DKW posted earlier today... he wants to have MOD priveleges and he should have them!

I did write to the people who are supposed to be in charge and put in a request to have a few people nominated as moderators...... my choices would be....

DKW..... WoW... and TheSkwirl..... I think they would make great mods.... if anyone agrees with me or has other people in mind who would make a good mod, send your request to the "official" mods here... apparently they need help!

SO! Who do you choose?

I've named 3... if anyone agrees or feels there may be other people "qualified" please put in your request! I'm quite sure the 3 I have named would take care of business around here!

Your vote does count.... or so they say!!

WE NEED MODS! WE NEED MODS! WE NEED MODS!!

Cast your ballot now!!! time is running out!!

Besides, I'd rather have getting in PTN's panties priviledges!

No Joe... I think we do need some mods here that will actually do something! There are some blogs that need to experience some killjoy here because they are bringing us NO joy!!

Ya gotta be close by to get panty privleges silly man!! ya know!?!?!

Risking being called biased, but those are pretty good choices. All 3 have always upheld the right to blog whatever you want, save for blatant TOS violations.

No WoW.....boring, repetitive or lame blogs do not violate the TOS....

Seems we tried something like this once before. A popular member was picked
and became the subject of ridicule and hate. He left the site dividing and taking with him many popular members. I think there are still a few on here that remember that. Some of our best blogs were lost. I myself will NOT pick and choose amoung friends. Before going through that again, I will just shut down my computer and go back to my TV.

The mods on the site just need to do their job. I can see problems of friends moderating friends.

I was here. And although I doubt the admins will listen like normal and appoint anyone, there was quite a bit more to that scenario than was ever let on. The biggest trouble was afterwards, when the Admin themselves came in and started deleting blogs and "cleaning house" yet missing a majority of known spammers and other pure shit stirrers.

Anyway....water way past the bridge. I have never wanted full mod powers, just enough to stop this incessant spamming and otherwise be able to shut down known trolls and those here simply of the purpose to cause trouble.

(And best of all....I work for free....doing basically what I been doing all along....stomping trolls....I just need a bigger sword.... )

No offence Rod. But I have to agree with shewolf. As you can see, it is already causing some controvercy.

I agree with NightOfOld if a member is given the position of moderator, even on a limited basis, it could over time, cause some animosity- you can't please everyone all of the time!

Making it a paid site can work, if AMD doesn't mind losing a large portion of its members! So, that's out!

The ability to allow or disallow comments in their blogs- is the power that these trolls have! Like I said above, if all comments were automatically allowed... period, then established members have some recourse by textually kicking ass [I said verbally above but meant textually].

The only other way, might be to automatically direct newbies directly to the forums for a week or two before becoming paid/unpaid members- kinda like an AMD purgatory! Some coding by the site webmaster could accomplish that!

Other than what I have suggested, you're going to have to ignore the trolls and move on to the next blog or, hope they quit blogging want ads... your choice!

My 2¢ worth!

I forgot to add that newbies would be allowed to view blogs but not create their own or comment in blogs for the same period of time!

I'm gonna have to agree with somnium and night also. It would cause a problem....someone would get pissy and it would be worse than the trolls. This is nothing new...these crappy, pathetic “please text me, yahoo me, cam me, fuck me, whatever me” blogs are a DAILY occurence. We are on a free sex site....it comes with the territory....it's unfortunate, but I just skip on over them

I think he has ADD .... he wouldn't be a very good choice!

All points are well taken..... but if we could at least have someone here who could delete bullshit blogs like we've been having to wade thru! Maybe automatically sign those onto craigslist somehow! That would be a winner!!

I can see problems of friends moderating friends.

In the situation that NightofOld refers to that is exactly what happened. It didn't involve the lame shout out fuck me blogs. It involved trying to squelch a flame war. It got really ugly. It involved a lot of choosing sides with an attitude of, "if you're not for me, you're against me." It was like a junior high cat fight.

When things escalate to that level, logic and rational thought often take a hiatus. It is pure emotion, usually anger. I have had skirmishes break out on my blogs between two other people resulting in my deleting comments by both people. I watched the wrath of hate turn towards me as a result.

If any regular blogger was to become a moderator, it would be best done without anyone actually knowing who it was, kind of a Clark Kent/Superman thing.

Bet some of you didn't think I would comment on this.............

First of all what they need to do here is like they do in Plentyoffish forums..........the first 10 people to read it, votes on whether it is appropriiate or not..........in this case whether it violates TOS.................if majority of the 10 say its ok.........it stays..........and vice versa..........(well to be honest i haven't been in the forums there for a long time but I assume they still do it that way........)

and I agree that if someone is to be mod no one should know who it is.................BUT in DKW's defense, if one is needed, I have never known him ever to take sides with anyone.................

I agree with that. He has also been a good friend to me, and that's why I would hate to see it happen to him. I like to keep my friends. ALL OF THEM.

I'd pick me. I don't play favorites. If you break the rules you're out. As long as you follow the rules I don't care who you talk shit about. This place is what you make it. You don't like it, don't complain about absentee Moderators. Change your behavior and ignore those that don't follow it. They WILL get bored and move on when they have nobody to play with.

I'd vote for DKW.. personally, I'm a mod at another site and wouldn't want the extra work. Thanks for the mention though.. it does feel kinda good.

Ewe has a great point.. a vote button would be nice.. and a tally at the top of the blog title so that you would know you should just avoid that shit.

I agree that DKW has a great sense of fairness about him and would never abuse the power. However, as it was brought up by Chuck, Bruce, Rod and Dayna, it was a HUGE mistake before. It caused many hurt feelings, many hurt friendships and took away a great number of great folks. Some of us came back, and healed old wounds as much as you can with those that have hurt you or felt that you hurt them. But things are never quite the same again. Many great fun bloggers left never to return and some are greatly missed.

I love the choices Pink made, and I would back them. DKW, WoW, and Skwirl would be excellent mods. But, like a few of the others, I also remember that member that was a mod and the shit storm that erupted.

I agree with SheWolf.....the mods that are supposed to be here need to start doing their job.

I think AMD is Doing an Awesome Job...(

No... they really aren't! I've reported a number of profiles and emails for spam but they don't do a thing..as I am quite positive that alot of the other ladies here have reported BS too.... . but now, on the vanilla site.... they have their Wonder Woman bracelets on.........they ware wearing it out! That site is crawling with spammers, worse than here... My entire inbox and filtered email has about 90 profiles that have been deleted..and deleted for being a scammer! . I know I know! I need to delete more often! lol

The mods are NOT doing an awesome job here Alex!! I'm sure you get alot of spam too... It would just be nice to know there was somewhere here that could take care of crap like that... and I'm figuring at this point, who ever it "might" become.... it would be best left a secret...

Anyway... this blog didn't seem to be a good idea after all... I've had quite a few comments and I see everyone's point of view... I don't quite remember all the details of what happened in the past here with someone being a MOD.... but I do remember it... it's a shame.. this is online............we don't want to fight or hate but a good little dispute once in a while is good for us.. But why should it go farther than that? Would we treat each other that way in "real time" some will clash but most won't..

OK... so it's late.. for me.. going to bed now... ya'll have sweet dreams!!
