It is my opinion that this site needs more mods.
    #6200161 - 10/23/06 01:56 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Shit, well, they need more mods here. In all honesty I've only been here about 3 years. 6 or 4 months ago I stopped posting due to flames, weird pictures (nasty, bad ones, whatever most people aren't into that shit, dead babies? Come on...) being posted, crazy people posting, all sorts of shit. So I stopped posting cept in lnc threads.

Then #lnc came, so I went there and stopped posting in lnc threads regularly.

Then crazy people kinda took over #shroomery in irc, most of the time. Unfortunately, some crazy people, we don't have to name names, you who go in #shroomery know who they are, just spam the room quickly with insane blather. Right on for freedom of speech, but must the crazies get it all the time? I guess that's tricky. So I stopped going in there for a while, I've come back to #shroomery lately, it still has the crazies spamming away, I put them on ignore but then when "normal" people respond I just get all lost. =/

I came back to this forum tonight and posted something stupid I did for fun/humility. Some how my myspace page ended up getting made fun of and a slew of other flames. I didn't bother to defend, bleh.

I am not the final judge, I do not know all. I only have my 3 years visiting this site off and on and my opinions.


My opinion is that this site, pub forum and #shroomery, needs maybe not new mods but more of them. People who love the site not just drug friends. I apologize if I've offended.

While I will continue to not visit the forums often, this place will always have a place in my heart as I've grown up and matured while visiting here. I have met many interesting people and learned many interesting things. I would just like to see the.. junk... to be lessened.

It's funny you say that because I actually think 13 mods is a little ridiculous. But I'll be interested to hear what other people have to say.

You should be proud that you have an extrmely popular site but maybe 13 isn't enough for such a massively popular forum? Are those 13 logged in a lot?

Hey, maybe I'm wrong. :shrug:

im here a few times a day, as are several of the other pub mods... half of the time i try and take action on a post that i have been mod notified on, it has allready been taken care of.

so as the issue is not the number or activity of the moderators, perhaps you do not feel that it is being properly moderated.

What specific things, issues, instances do you feel were improperly moderated?

I spend 90% of my time in the pub and I don't see a lot of shit like that at all. Sounds like OTD.

Perhaps we need more mods who are active? :shrug:

For the most part, I don't notice a lot of problems, but I don't frequent The Pub, which is by far the most active community forum (I think P&S and OTD are essentially tied for second, I wonder if these type of stats are available?), so I have no opinion to express on the matter.

That's because no one posts there. :smirk:

In my opinion, all the "junk" is residue from your former posts.
How is more moderation going to contain opinions on things that YOU have posted and links YOU have given? Seems to me that you're trying to cop out of your history sir. Good luck.

The "drug fiend" comment is especially rich, thanks for that.

Bleh, you are an asshole to me, this isn't a flame, this is a fact. As others could verify, you use to stalk me online and you seem like a very sad/creepy person. I'm surprised the shroomery staff still let you represent the shroomery. You must have excelent drug information. "Seems to me that you're trying to cop out of your history sir.", I openly admit to anyone who asks some of the foolish choices I made when I was younger. Time pases and most people grow. I'm sorry but your creepyness doesn't scare me and your flaming posts don't offend me anymore.

:yesnod:
Hrm I think I'll just put you on ignore as I am not a negative person. Most people know me as a nice guy who likes to have fun. So go ahead, flame away, take all the cheap shots from my past you want. I no longer care.



As for the more active mod thing I agree. There are a lot of people here at the shroomery, who :heart: the shroomery who work on comps all day who would love to do it. I'm sure you could find people for the pub who you could trust.
