    as in members voted on idk 1-2 year basis. whoever won the poll would be a mod. would you think the tracker would be a success or would the members kill it?

    *let's not get into stuff like "the existing mod is going to cheat the votes". one could always assume someone could be a mod for certain year or whatever. also remember it's voting for moderator not for sysop so sysop can if he desires make it a fair voting.

    just wondering about opinions...

    Trackers, like businesses, aren't a democracy and seeing the level of the average member that is just as well.
    Btw if you go all democratic then it's only fair that everyone should then get to vote on who gets to be members as well.

    Also clearly I'm not half devious enough because it never occurred to me that a staffer would stoop to fixing votes.
    It's all Meg's fault.

    Well the most sociable mods aren't necessarily the best ones. I'd think it best to leave it up to the owner's discretion, because you'd have to be an extremely tight community to not have the majority of the votes end up random, amirite?

    @IE: can only assume members get to vote on who becomes mod in whatever time basis...and that's about it. let's not get into "do member get to vote on who becomes the next member?" and whatnot. assume it's not a fully democratic system... if that makes you feel better.

    I think it'd be a disaster, the votes would be hugely split between a bunch of prolific forum posters, and the person who one would be in no way suitable for the job, in many cases.

    It'd be interesting if this was done with qualifications or reasons listed. Like coding in X,Y,Z, previously moderated forums, knowledge of encoding (in the case of quality checks on torrents), etc.

    There is no such thing a a tight knit community ,that's one of the big myths of "community" torrent trackers.There are a few ( proportionally very few) people that are invested to varying degrees and consequentially they will themselves into falsely believing that the vast amounts of insipid forum spam by the masses means something akin to loyally or true involvement of in the most delusional of cases, caring.
    Maybe I'm way off base and a bunch of (largely)teens honestly feel that by belonging to a tracker they are "part of a family"(Lord knows someone is always quick to say something like that ) and "have each best interests at heart" but if my experience counts for anything I would say that nothing could be further from the truth.

    At least ,caring about the other people beyond what them can do for you ,that's what "tight-knit " means to me .
    It's all Meg's fault.

    They aren't pointless they are only pointless to you which isn't the same thing.

    Btw I'd just as soon stay out of the bt section entirely if anyone would ever post anything anyplace else.

    I'd lobby for a philosophy section but I'm not sure that I believe in it.

    The average EQ of people who are in private trackers/BT forums is non existent + The average age is around 16,so a democratic system is sure to fail.
