There is to much rampart hate here now. Every other BBS had mods of some form & I think that it's time NG join in this trend. Then again I hardly post here anymore so I'll end my opinion here.

Wade I do think you should consider this.

Note rampart should be rampant.

I'd agree... if someone creates it, i'd volunteer to do it, from like 11pm-12am or something? It would be fun!

Yes that's what SHE means. Not so much as police but to weed out the trouble makers so that people can have fun like it used to be here.

This is what you get when most of the people posting are 13 year olds who just want to cause trouble, the problem I see with mods (as I have said before) is the Fulp's getting lazy about it and handing that power over to users who are on the site all the time...and who's on the site the most? The trouble making 13 year olds...so I don't think mods are the answer, people just need to ignore the jerks that wanna start fights.

I agree with it, but it'll cause some problems.

Mods weren't needed in the past.. But this also isn't the past. But you're going to have people asking to be moderators and whine if they don't become ones.. It'll create power struggles between people and such. That's just my pessimestic assumptions though.

It's a good idea overall.

See but this is the beauty of this idea. Wade knows most of the users from back then & knows who are responsible. As for people asking to be mods those are the ones you have to worry about. The saying is true, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely." That is why there should be mods & Admins. Again just my humble opinion.

Maybe you should have to fill out an application to become a member of the BBS Police Squad. I mean, 13 year olds are too young to apply for something, right? The application should be sent through snail mail, like post office kind. And you should attach a photo of yourself or something. You should be at least 18 to apply.

Hmm.. Truetrue. I'm just worried some people might take this to the extreme.

I don't know. It looks like I'll be starting to post here again.

I don't know.. Age shouldn't really matter as a 13 year old could be more mature than a group of 18 year olds. Plus the whole mailing process isn't worth it and just wastes time. And why a photo? That's shouldn't really matter.

A mod should be chosen for their personality and actions; not their age, sex, or their appearence.

When Wade was talking about mods for the BBS, he said they would have LIMITED powers, such as shutting down topics and one day bans.

Bah, who'd want to be a mod anyway. What a waste of time.

I reread most of the replys & maybe some people need the fear of knowing that if they start shit they can & will be banned for a day or longer. I think the fact that Wade is so busy that he only sees when people email him what's going on.

Sometimes when people know they are being watched they tend to act with a little more sense.
