    Should be getting up there in the worlds most dangerous jobs list. I read about vipmusic and rts2...sheesh. Are they being abducted by the cyber gods or what?

    nah, just kids that don't know how to inform others of what is happening. Guess thats what happens when your parents still decide your daily schedule...

    Cybergod... could be a cool nickname .
    Anyhow RTS sysop is abroad AFAIK.
    I hope all is okey with the VIP sysop.
    Remember for some people torrents is not the reason to live.
    They have private matters to attend and not being able to inform you about it may be unintentional.

    People.... actually... have real lives?

    But seriously, some sysops just get sick of all the crap they deal with from day in and day out. It's like any other job. After a while, you just want to move onto something new.

    Being a sysops is one tough position!

    Being admin on any community is a tough job.

    I agree. They should take steps to combat it though. For example, they could hide profile info from forum mods and cycle them on a regular basis. Or perhaps only allow them to view IP masks, so they could still help hunt for traders. Even the GMods don't need to know personal info in order to regulate torrent uploads and passkey resets, so they could be cycled as well. Or if nothing else, just take care to do what FSC does and choose really friendly people.

    There's no excuse for the behavior of staff on some trackers.

    Believe it or not, most of these sites have staff around the ages of 15-18. No offense to anyone running a site that age, I just remember when I was that young I wasn't exactly the most mature and informative little rebel either.

    I pulled out from NB as an admin basically because of the ammount of work.

    I was just one of 3 admins. Not sysop, admin.. I recieved on a daily basis ~30 PMs. My inbox was purged every 14th day, yet it never contained less then 600 PM's all-the-time. At really busy days I could wake up to 20-25 PM's, answer them, go to school, come home to 10-15, lots of'em with replies from the earlier PM's, and before I went to bed maybe 5-10.

    And lets not forget the reports, with a average of ~9 reports a day to take care of.
    .... and the uploader applications
    .... and the torrent editing / deleting
    .... and handeling all donations

    So.. After some time, you don't really see all the fun in it. It IS fun, but it's also a lot, and I do mean a LOT of work.

    As a sidenote, Norwegians aren't always the most polite ppl on teh internets. It was extremly rare that any of my PM's with questions started with a "sorry to disturb you", "good day!" or something, and ended with a "thank you".

    It was more.. "My acc. is fucked, check it.", "Why did you delete my torrent?" and "Hi, how do I upload torrents?!". Sometimes the person sent another message 40 mins later with "Answer me! This sucks, bad service, you gotta tell me how to upload!!"

    There are of course lots of phun things to do, but all in all.. It's like some of you've said; a thankless job, some times.

    If it weren't for the superwub community, I would've bailed eariler :p

    Cheers
