Am I correct on this?

Mods can ban people from their forum, from other forums, and from the whole site. Correct?

Mods cannot delete threads in other forums than the ones they moderate?

Well, I have had a few instances where I needed a mod to delete or edit a post of another user because it gives away information that is not for everyone, and the only mods online where of other forums and couldn't do anything about it.

This should be considered.

Yeah all mods should have an emergency-mod option or something... and when mods from other forums edit posts in forums other than their own, a notification could be sent to the mods that are supposed to be in charge of said forum... that way, they could double-check and make sure the edit was deserved.

Boy, after this week, I'm sure ALL the Mods want MORE power, so we can be publicly doubted and harrassed even FURTHER whenever we make a judgement call.

I can see it now:

"ShroomyMIKE just locked a thread in OTD but he's really a Pub Mod... WAAAAA! Let's BURN him!"

Goody.

Actually that isn't a bad idea Jim, but the Mob's getting a little unruley as it is... with most of OTD playing back-seat Mods and all.

The Staff has discussed your idea in the past... I don't remember why the Admins said no... but I think OTD had something to do with it.

I agree that the whole bandwagon mod/admin bashing is out of hand, but this is more of a serious matter.

We decided to allow site wide bans for Mods to allow for maximum coverage of spammers, puppets, etc.. Its worked very well, and the max ban a mod can do anyhow is 24hrs.

So every ban is reviewed anyhow.

As for not being able to edit posts, move/lock posts in other forums that you don't moderate.. The big reason was that if there is something pressing you can look for an admin to go take care of the problem or notify the mods of that forum.

Theres usually at least 1 admin around it seems, so this is why we felt it was best to keep each mod focused soley on their own forum(s) to avoid messing things up.

Each mod and their forum might see certain situations differently than an outside mod, so to keep things more consistant we figured lets not mess with this :smile:

I'm not so sure I agree about there always being an admin online. There have times I have been online and no admin or mods were on. This is generally 3:30AM EST - 6AM EST.

This has worked for as long as message boards have been around. As you'll notice on all message boards moderators are given forum specific powers, and not message board wide powers.

The reason being is why should a mod outside hunting forum be able to go into that forum and start locking, moving, editing threads? Its best left to the mods of that forum.

The rare cases when an admin is not around for something urgent is not worth changing a system that works well. Especially when in really urgent cases you can get a hold of admins via instant chat, or wait till the next admin gets online or forum mod.

BTW Anno is usually around those times Jim, he's in Austria and is up usually when we are all sleeping.

I realised something while thinking about it. To get it to work, people would have to literaly sign up for what hours they would be online and moderating. That would never work out, especially since people have lives/jobs/other obligations.

exactly.

I think everyone misses the fact that this is a website...

The case that I was presenting was important for that instance, though.

Heh, yeah, if you could convince 50% of this community to shell $5 per month, I wouldn't be the unemployed slacker I am!
