Why is it when MODs start to lose the the plot they lock the post.
Like slim IMHO they are losing the plot and ask you to PM Mods as I am known to be against secrecy here is the PM I have just sent Ghost Rider.

Subject: Being a MOderator
When the question gets difficult the thread gets locked with no further explanation. We would still like to know why the requests for AAC to be a moderator on Current affairs was ignored????????????????? IT smacks of MODS sticking together.
PM's are not a good way to discuss this as people feel they have been taken out of the loop and others have something to hide or protect.
"The Eternal OD"
Put very neatly and succinctly Nutty
AAC for MOD
i have just read the thread abou AAC and seadog etc etc. i dont seem to follow what a CO is wrt RR.
are they god??
Good CO and Bad CO are both god and owners of RR, Arrse and Rearparty.
are they buying the friggin beers then.
can i slip a request form in to see them then.
i've got a suggestion for a sub-section
total gratuitous porn section
gronks we humped in the rec space
ways i screwed over the andrew
Bloody hell give it a rest, do you think us MODS sit together at our computers thinking of ways to feck everyone off . Get a life, if you dont like the Moderation policy feck off . Please at least try to go with the flow on this site. I have never met any of the MODS , I dont know them , so there is no little gang. Get over it and post something decent instead of whinging whining drivel . I have a good topic for you .put it in the Submariners forum and title it ''Why is the mod for this Submariners forum such a knob'' .
"are you talking to me"
I think deeps that this is the type of attitude which is p!ssing blokes off
phew i thought he was talking to me.
back in the cage my gimp
No I think he is talking to the same old whinging, whining, tediously f*cking boring tools who are repeatedly posting the same old crap
No apologies guys it's really getting f*cking tedious, if you don't like the moderation policy f*ck off to "subs are us" or something as equally interesting :evil:
I have to say, I hadn't seen this topic until after I'd sent the PM below in response to Nutty's pm. In the interests of openness (and because it will end up here anyway) I reproduce my response to him for all to see.
I stand by my closing few lines. If this topic does not appear to be contributing further to the debate, it will be culled. For the moment, though, I'd like to see some form of sensible response from everyone on this. There will be little latitude, though, and if this goes off-topic even slightly, its gone!
I never ever had any intention to post or reveal the contents of you PM as it is yours and that would have to be your decision. As I have said to you I am happy with its contents concerning mods and what they do or don't but it does not address the question with any, even if unwelcome, response.
I'd actually misunderstood the actual question; as I understand it, you are asking "How are moderators selected and appointed?"
To answer in brief, anyone can recommend themselves or another person as a moderator for a specific forum. It should be proposed to the Site Administrators who retain the exclusive ability to appoint (and remove from post) the moderators. Moderators themselves do not have the ability to elect members to the moderator clan.
It is recommended that to reach the Site Admins in a swift manner, you should send an email to:
Sending a PM to the Site Admins will often not receive a response, as they do not generally see the messages - hence the recommendation of using email!
Hopefully this answers the question I think you are asking.
In summary: if you want someone to be a moderator of a specific forum, email the address above with your nomination and some form of "reasoning" behind your recommendation. If nothing else, you'll get an email saying "Thanks for your time. We'll consider it". The Site Admins will then make the decision. End of Dit.
