I see no mods around now, but imagine if there weren't any mods at all.

What would we do? Would it be good or bad? Consequences?

Discuss.

That would be a stupid idea. Most threads would just turn into flame wars and spam threads.

Politics would degrade into rednecks bitching about black people.

it'd be a terrifying place where the strong would prey on the weak, like high school

This place would be full with dicks, tits, insults, no-brainer topics, etc.

I have other places for that...

If there were no mods than there would be no Jolly. He is the sole protector of the portal, patrolling it 24/7.
Watching over the portal is his #1 responsibility in life.
In fact that is his only responsibility in life.
He doesn't get out much.

Whatever we wanted. Both good and bad. Consequences: more initial activity, more spam, topics about anything, over time less activity by serious users who get tired of unmoderated content, maybe illegal content, maybe complaints about illegal content, tons of plain +1 posting everywhere, tons of forum games, tons of introductory threads and self-advertisement, a slow death and decay of the community.

What are you talking about? He barely does any modding around here. When was the last time you saw him lock a thread, eh?

They're doing an important job of taking out the trash, and brushing up user discipline.
I suppose it sounds demeaning when I say it like that, but I mean it well.

You mean just being a dick. There is no such thing as a troll on Newgrounds.

Spam threads and advertising bots wouldn't be deleted, that's the worst I can foresee. Mods go offline all the time and the BBS doesn't descend into anarchy. Why would it be any different if there were no mods at all?

I bet people could post pics of chicks with dicks with no NSFW warning. I mean, how crazy would that be?
