    What do members expect from the mods?

    The present Mods (CornerPocket, jetje, El_Jefe) were put in place when the boards atmosphere was rather different than it is currently. There have been some changes in the demographic composition of the board, the overall number of members, as well as changes in prevelent attitudes of the members. So just to get a better handle on what everybodies' expectations are, could you guys list what things you'd like us to focus on.

    Such as more board maintainence (moving, merging, splitting threads)
    or more policing of threads and members( deleting spam, off-topic posts, rude posts, etc), or maybe a combination of the two.

    Try to be somewhat specific.

    The mods are doing a good job. For which they get little thanks.

    Keep up the good work.

    Cheers

    PS I was going to post a deliberately enigmatic (though non-sensical) message. But I couldn't be bothered.

    I think CornerPocket, jetje, El_Jefe are doing a fantastic job as it is.

    The forum is great, its got good advise, and friendly atmosphere.

    Keep up the good work.

    Just one thing can you sort out this problem evertime we post a reply, it says page not found

    I would like to see as quickly as possible closing of "The sky is falling posts." With the mods or members stating the truth, then this thread is closed you f'n n00b!

    I'm a former Moderator @ GTAForums.com with 29,000 (I resigned)

    I want You to: Move topic's to the correct place and also inform why You did move the topic.
    I want You to: Delete unwanted post or topic's.
    I want You to: Take action against spammers that only post a smillie in Their post (IE reduce Their post count).
    I want You to: Edit members oversized signatures.
    I want You to: Be helpful with newbies.
    I want You to: Pin important topic's more.

    That's all for now I guess.

    cheers,
    BOT

    If MODs are expected to do that, then we might need a couple more.

    I agree, you mods are doing a really good job.

    I think what you listed
    moving, merging, splitting threads, deleting spam, off-topic posts, rude posts, etc
    are the basic functions of a mod.

    We don't need more or less of either. Just keep your light touch.

    Basically, you're like the referee. You should remain in the background unnoticed but step in when trouble flares.

    The only thing that needs addressing is that there are periods when there are no mods at all looking after the board. That leaves the board wide open to abuse / spam . I'm thinking in particular of the K4L incident.
    All my invites I give freely.
