There are only a few who seem to be on this site. Where are the rest of them then? Fecking waste of time having them if they can't be arsed.

What exactly would you like moderated?

I suspect others are also hovering but most of us have day jobs so observe from afar only stepping in when the world would end but for some critical and decisive moderation. :wink:

And your point is?
My point is, if things were moderated properly and quickly, things would get done on this site more effectively wouldn't they?

By the way, i don't include you in this as you are always lurking, as are some of the others. It's just that i see Mods callsigns on different forums and have never seen anything by them.

Why have people as Mods who are not here any more being a point in question. Virtually everyone on here have day jobs and yet they contribute. Oh, and while i'm at it, can we get this RR Greatest Threads thing up and running?

Quite some time back I was advised by a wise & learned user that: "to moderate" meant: "to do little", which seemed a reasonable observation.

Heavy-handed moderation, whilst often a source of amusement, just tends to revert to an "us & them" circular & pointless conflict.

On the topic of new sub-forums:

One thing that does cause a lot of friction from all aspects is potential joiners asking questions which to the savvy seem completely bone, & to the first time questioner completely logical.

An enquirer invariably gets flamed by an exasperated user (yep, we've all done it) & the "new joiner" flounces off - the upshot being that the site membership growth is stifled. The exasperated user usually retorts: "It's not an official site" thus justifying their position.

My viewpoint is that maybe a flameproof sub-forum for potential joiners should be established so that the old & bold maintain a lower blood pressure by avoiding it & potential joiners - which make-up 25% of the site membership - can post unmolested.

The alternative is a totally separate forum for potential joiners which will then reduce the spontaneous interactivity on this site. It's very much doubted the service would fund an official one besides what is already provided as they are saving the pennies to buy aircraft carriers, etc.

Just a thought.

I agree with most of what you say, and have always viewed you as a good moderator, who without the need to ask will inform you of your infractions.
Well done.
The stupid replies seem to be growing in the Newbie threads as annoyingly they seem to get lazier. The threads are well posted and some of the main ones (Newbie wise) are mostly in the top 50.
But at one point quite recently there were about 5 active threads in the top 50 dealing with who was going where and when. Pure laziness by the posters who could not be bothered to look at what was afoot before knocking. Akin to entering my house without wiping your feet. Bad form, and when told where to go, in most cases not even a word of thanks.

How apt coming from a man who spends his time shut away from the sun voluntarily. Gimp methinks?
With all this stuff about skin cancer seeems to make sense to me though
And that from a man who flounces around the undergrowth wearing make up claiming it's camouflage
