I wasn't really aware that there were anti-mod sentiments here... I mean this is a fairly open forum. Is there any examples of people posting anti-mod threads (may be redundant).

I myself made a, not entirely anti mod thread, but demading changes to the way things work between the mods and us.
This led to the great bleakness of february, during which Freak left us for a while as a result of my post.
I've realized that without a restructuring of the power distribution across NG, mods are still an integral part of th BBS, without which we are powerless.
The the general, more so than here, there is still an anti-mod sentiment, and stating reasons for locks may help stop this.

This is Ramagi's version : http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic.php?id=53726&page=3

Can't be entirely sure which is more accurate, but seeing as how Ramagi is the only one who can currently make sure as she goes along, you might want to follow her's.

It when you go to post in a topic, and it's been locked for an unknown reason.
It may seem to be uneccesary work for the mods to state a reason, but I think it would go a long way towards battling anti-mod sentiments.

Yeah, sometimes I see topics that I don't think should be really locked. But, most of the topics I see that get locked are locked for the right reason - repetition of topics (NG users should stop bugging other users for reviving dead topics, it prevents the forums from getting a lot of topics that have the exact idea of topics that have "died", but were not deleted, besides, revived topics already have some old posts, sometimes with good points and ideas, to start the new posts up), spam, unreasonable agressive manner, and many other things not helping the forums.

So, mods do deserve a lot of credits for clearing the BBS from junk, just like blammers clear the portal of junk. I know people do get pissed when they get banned and have their topics deleted, but it's usually for the right reasons.

Sometimes, mods should leave reasons for why they lock up a topic, but many times, it's pretty obvious what the reason is. And, I have seen many messages left by mods in locked topics, like "This topic already exists, go to...[and then the link]".

Whoa, too much text on something that's not even so related. I got too many ideas in my brain, I should really think less.

Damn, I'm only Elite Guard Private, lowest rank for elite guards, and I've been at this for a while, and this rank seems pretty low when you look at the list for all the ranks... I stopped blamming and saving movies a while ago, I only do it sometimes so I can vote off my daily 5, to deposit my 10 experience points.

Ouch. Looks like someone is just begging to be banned. Nothing wrong with not liking mods, in my opinion, but posting something like that is flat out insane.

The dude who posted that is at level one and has 37 posts. 37 posts is far to few to give a shit about the moderaters. That is obviously a back up profile, thus he doesn't care if it gets banned.

Yeah, obviously it's not someone's primary account, just an extra account that was made - it's obvious that he expected a locked up topic and a ban. Hmmmm... Can mods find your ip?

I think they can but just because it can be done doesn't mean that was what this dude was thinking. He's not neccesarily true that this dude is the brightest bulb out there.

Well, I guess it was a pretty dumb thing to do. Mods are like cops on NewGrounds, and well, most of the time when people get caught by cops, their planned escape route does not cover some things they don't think of. In other cases, they just mess up their plan, or do not have a plane at all.

Wow! ok I can't belive no one has said anything about the affirmative action case in the US Supreme Court now against Michigan State. If you havent heard of it, the court is trying to determine whether AA is constitutional or not. Personal I don't belive it is because it causes discrimination and prefferential treatment based on race. Even though it is designed to diversify a population it still is not constitutional because it gives someone more merit than another person based on skin color. If one unconstitutional act is performed and it only effects one person unconstitutionally then it is wrong regardless of what it is trying to achive. Diversity in colleges and workplaces aregoing to have to be maintained some other way than from AA. (Sorry about any spelling typos, I never have been good at spelling)

WARNING WARNING WARNING

I've noticed a few regulars and semi-regulars have dissapeared. We need to bolster our ranks and woo them back.
Among the missing in action-
Most pominent-
NEMESiZ
NoNameProphet
Judge_DREDD
House_Of_Leaves

I might add that NoName and House were some of the most promising new members I'd ever seen.
Other assorted members I can't remember.
And does anyone know when Doc_Arbitrary is due back?

Alright, men, we're leading a revolution against MSN and Ameritech. I had DSL again for a few days then they said they were switching carriers and I was now out of range. I live in the damn state capitol! Now I'm back on 56K until I can find another DSL company!

Aaaaah!!

*raises pitchfork*

Onward to the Bastille!
