Seems like almost every topic has been covered...
I think a night shift of mods would be a good addition. Not exactly making the mods work in shifts, but one or two (already modded or newly appointed) people that have the ability to keep watch between 2am - 6am. That's when i see the most spam show up, and then it's bumped the next afternoon, and EVERYone goes nuts about "OMG where did this spam come from".
Eyelovepoozy, oh lol. in my opinion, he's an ok guy. Sure he can dish out a cruel joke, and a shovel full of bans, but the way i see it, he's doing the work of three mods at once. The regulars see it as "Abuse of power", and the new guys see it as "He's out to get me". Not that i'm saying people should stop posting when Poozy is online for the sake of a possible ban, but when bigger brother is watching, i watch what i say, carefully.
One topic i haven't noticed yet, is favored regulars. Mods should NOT give one inch to even their closest friends. However, i think warning PMs and posts would set a good example. Bans can really put someone in a bad mood, and i think warning someone saying "stop posting EPIC over and over", rather than "You have 72 hours in the corner to think about what you said....". would really give the mods a more...human appearance, rather than some robot that spits out bans and funny lock messages. Though bans should not be eliminated completely, there are still the select few that continue to test the mods patience, and the forums sanity, and they deserve their bans. They should be applied more selectively.
I know when i'm about to get banned, every time. I post in a thread, and i think "Ahh shit, i'm getting 3 days. My bad". But i think there are a few who are still oblivious to what a spam thread is. I suggest, when a spam topic is posted, ban the OP, that's it. It seems silly to ban 14 people for one persons stupidity. That's not always the case though, some people do go overboard and consistently push the mods buttons by posting one liners threads, and everyone should know, just leave it be.
