How can we be a Mod? I want to be one, but I think i still have a long road to pass

Basically, you excel in all areas of being a member, and you might be singled out if the time comes for new staff.
Asking kinda deminishes your chances, though :\

The one way to be a mod is to NOT do what you just did...you should never plainly open a thread asking to be a mod...big no no

Commong, most of us want to be a mod, but know not to ask, up front about it! You have to earn it, But good luck any how!

To me it seems people dont really know it's more work to be a mod. You get a better PM box, but aside from that there is a lot of work you have to do. You uaslly have to move threads back and fourth depending on if it's in the right area or not. Then there is also if it's a duplicate topic or not, if it's spam, ect.. It's a lot more work being a mod or anything higher then people really think it is. People just think it's a position on the boards that gives you respect, ya but it also is a lot more responsiablity which most wanting to be mods dont have.

I have a better question, when will people realize the best rank is the one you join into? ^_^
Oh, and your question was in the FAQ you know.

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 08:56 AM
Another thing, people dont read that stuff as much as they should. Rules, FAQ, other stuff that people should read tends to get ignoired by the new comers here.

When they lose the best rank they have (most of the time that is true).

Why do people want to do work, and give up the "Member" title where you get to enjoy the others doing everything for you? It's like "Can I give up my role of being the master of the house and become a slave?"

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 08:58 AM
lol, thats becuse people dont really know what you have to do as a mod. When a person acutally finds out what it is, they tend not to want to do it.

Kairi
August 18th, 2004, 09:01 AM
Err, this needed to be moved. /me does so

Sayuri no Hoshi
August 18th, 2004, 09:10 AM
You know, Kairi's right, heh. ^_^; I'm obviously not putting down my position of being a mod; because, I do feel honored to be one. You just have to be patient--just make yourself be known as a worthy and helpful member and your time will come if an admin, or another higher rank of power, feels you can handle having a moderator position. Plus, mods only close threads and do other odd jobs. We don't have the real power, lol. XD

I'm a Mod at another site,Its not hard at all.I like being a Mod there.But I wouldnt want to be a Mod here.Like you said,its funner being the Member then a Mod.

Arcanine
August 18th, 2004, 09:42 AM
Here is how it goes, you get a larger PM box, and see the Mod forum (good and bad parts to that). I get PMs from new members asking "Can I be a Mod?" and they only have like 5 posts on the forums. You know they just want to be a Mod for the title or just to run around saying "Hey look I am a Mod" and as soon as they have to do work "Oh why don't you go to another Mod to do this". Everyone thinks being a Mod is all fun and games but it's hard work.

Trap-door how many members is on the forum you Mod? PC has four thousand members, by now it would have over five thousand if the Admins didn't clean out the old members that never posted. PC is large, lots of members to keep track of, and if you are a Mod of a forum that gets a lot of posts you will have your hands full.

Midori Chi
August 18th, 2004, 09:54 AM
I would have to say.Its over 2,000,I know that much.

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 10:04 AM
See, thats what I'm saying. People just want the title, they really dont know that it is acutall work.

Castrainer
August 18th, 2004, 10:08 AM
Gotta think of... Being a mod isnt something important for ya, its important for others. Being a mod is HELPING not ABUSING!

Gardy
August 18th, 2004, 10:29 AM
blue i like your avvy. but ontopic being a mod is hard work take it from arcanine who is a prater (sp) which is way harder. u have to make tough descions. it may take 2 years untill u r a mod.

Castrainer
August 18th, 2004, 10:36 AM
And...? Its not everyone who wants to be mod. I dont want, but if If someone ever ask if ya want to be a mod it would depend on which forum... And I dont care my position as long as I can have fun at PC ^_^

Arcanine
August 18th, 2004, 10:36 AM
See, thats what I'm saying. People just want the title, they really dont know that it is acutall work.
Yea people like the title. I mean who other then Frosty (the Mod not skds) would turn down a Mod spot. But if I just gave some one that didn't work for that spot a Mod spot, most of the time they won't do that good as if some one who worked for and helped members to get there.
I mean if some one just gave you $100 bucks for nothing now you might just go off and blow it in no time. But if you worked real hard getting that same amount of money you might think about it before you spend it all in one place.
My point is a Mod spot don't come easy on PC, members will get Modded for what they do (if they help a lot of members report spam and all that stuff then it will help you're chances to be a Mod).

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 10:37 AM
Not two years, lets not go overboard. There are a few mods with less then six months and 1,000 post here. You just have to help people out and follow the rules.

Gardy
August 18th, 2004, 10:42 AM
sry. 2 years i thought. XD ppl who don't deserve it want power and to be famous i know mods and ppl that r famous though they didn't want to be a mod/prater for that reason. u may have to help make things better on pc.

Arcanine
August 18th, 2004, 10:45 AM
Abby was Modded in a month from joining and Alyssa was Modded almost a year from joining. So the time differs (I was Modded 4 months from joining and made S-Mod in weeks from making Mod).

Like we said, time really dosent matter one of the best mods ever at pc was only here a month before she got modded (Abby )

Timbjerr
August 18th, 2004, 12:24 PM
took me nine months since I initially joined to be modded, then it'll be at least 11 months since I was modded till I become an S-mod

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 12:27 PM
You joined just to be a mod? That's...not new surprisingly a lot of members do this on big boards just to gain power I guess. But hey you came out pretty good...little pathtic but hey it's all right with me lol.

Brittany

Nine months of bugging admin? XD jk.

August 18th, 2004, 12:51 PM
I was modded a few months ago and I was member of PC for two and a half years. That's how you wait to be a mod. XP

Just be good, be helpful, and try to stand out out of the crowd in a good way. Then, they mods will notice you... ^^

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 12:54 PM
Well it doesnt matter mod or not ^^ being part of PC is just also an honor! I mean its one of the best forums around so be glad your a part of it! i myself wouldnt mind being a mod but its not gonna happen ^^ i dont really deserve it as it is XD lol.

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 12:57 PM
It's just allways going to be up to the higher's here. Just try to stand out by helping people whenever you think you can help them. If you dont think you can help them tell them a member that might be able to to. Oh ya, DONT be rude to any one of the members, share your opions but dont force it onto people.

Arcanine

Well PC has not been around for 2 and a half years. XD

I'm not a mod or anything, so I'll just say what most people have said. Help out newbies, and even advanced members if they need help, don't try sucking up to a mod or admin to become one, and treat everyone equaly. And don't just try to become a mod for the power, actually do it with a meaning, like wanting to help in some way.

Sakura and Espeon
August 18th, 2004, 01:08 PM
No, being a moderator is much harder than you think it is. You have to check every topic to see if they comply to the rules and also you have to help members explain what they do wrong and stuff. It takes Patience to do this job and notice that we volunteer, so we don't get payed anything for doing our job. I did this this job to help PC to be a safe and non-spam place and also help other members about topics they need to know about. ^_^

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 01:11 PM
Yeah thats what i woud like to do....I love to help i mean i LIKE orginaizing lockers and messed up shelves XD I THINK i would be a good Mod. XD but it aint my choice so we will have to see... anyways when WAS the last time someone was modded?

Deoxys55
August 18th, 2004, 01:15 PM
Well, Jkaizer was remodded after the forums were hacked I think. XD

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 01:17 PM
Lol....well I mean like a new person....just wondering XD.

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 01:21 PM
Just seems to me to many people are asking to be mods without having a good understanding of what it really means to be one.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 01:38 PM
That is true.... because this is me also i do admit but not really anymore:
people think to be a mod means your going to be popular....its a little true but you have to be responsible and such.....

Blaze
August 18th, 2004, 01:40 PM
Yeah I am not a mod here yet anyways XD

What I must say is that you need to gain the Admins, Praetors, S-Mods, and Mods respect if you want to ever achieve this.

You should never join a forum just to become Mod for one that doesn't look good or makes you look very trust worthy and you won't become a Mod for at least a few months.

Moding is a privelage which is a gift yet a curse (i do mod at other forums so i can speak lol XD). It is fun to Mod of course but there are alot of responsiblitys and you must know the rules for where you Mod because you have to do a good job

Ice demon
August 18th, 2004, 03:21 PM
Meh i used to want to be a mod
but now i'm just happy posting as a normal member without the extra work ^_^...............


Its the best way - believe me ^_^

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 03:25 PM
Ya, well at least people are starting to catch on thst being s mod involves work, and a good deal of it. I've allways known that so it irks me when people sk admins to be a mod just for the title.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 03:30 PM
well that would never be me... i WANT to do the hard work unlike normal people....XD

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 03:33 PM
Still you have to help people, move threads, read EVERY thread in your area(s) to make sure there are no duplicate or spam and such. Aside from thst you get pm's from a lot of members asking for help on things thst your expected to know.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 03:36 PM
yup thats the hard work i mean ^^ if i was a mod i would do it to help- and to do the dirty work.....

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 03:40 PM
Anyone would do it if they were a mod. They kinda would HAVE to.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 03:43 PM
Well most people want to be a mod because....well....they want to be a mod...XD the only reason i want to be is because i really like helping people but its allright if im not i help people by making sprites ^^

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 03:45 PM
I like helping people to I do it a lot...apperentally. Though a lot of people only do it here in hopes of being mod's which isent a good reason for it, you have to want to do it out the goodness of your heart...cheesy but true.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 03:51 PM
Yup thats me! lol i was gonna say what i said was tacky but i didnt.... :P

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 03:55 PM
Lol, lotta people are afraid of something being tacky like that.

Jay
August 18th, 2004, 04:01 PM
*yawn* Why would you want to become a mod?

It's the same as being a regular member except you have to be responsible and do your job, what a waste of time.

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:02 PM
I like helping whenever I can. There are people that just want to help other becuse they like helping.

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 04:15 PM
I don't care about modship. I like helping out people. I post in ever single newbie forum I see just because I like to. I know how it felt to be a newbie. Well I guess I still am. I have only been here a little over a month. If someone asked me to, well I would be more than happy to help out PC, but it isn't a goal of mine and I never think of it.

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:16 PM
Thats how is should be, but sadly isent though.

Frostweaver
August 18th, 2004, 04:17 PM

Please spread these words to all those who starts threads on "how do I become a mod" and etc. Lol too bad that old T-Dome thread in the question forum got erased during the hack. Bewildered at the amount of daily requests of "oh I guess that I can mod over it if no one else wants to..."

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:17 PM
yup *nods sadly* I just wanna show people what i can do...but still i can do that withut being a mod.

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:20 PM
We all can. I guess having that title gives you a sense of self-achivment. Sowhat, would people stop helping if they lost the title of mod? I wouldent but many people dont understand that it's work to be a mod.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:22 PM
yeah i wouldnt stop either...it would make me work harder.... ^^

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:23 PM
Ya, people dont do things for the right reason anymore it seems.

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 04:25 PM
Eliana, you would make a cool mod. Don't get me wrong or anything. But it seems to me like this whole time you are trying to ask for modship, but not directly, but subliminally. Well atleast that is what I am getting. I think you would make a great mod though. Oh yes, and who was the last person to obtain modship around here?

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:25 PM
yeah.....but i really do wanna stop that but there isnt anything we could do...and piro munkie thanks.... ^^ and your right about the asking part :P i used to say "CAN I BE A MOD?PLEASE? PLEASE?"
XD ah yes those were the bad olddays.....at other forums...now i put it differentely cuz i know it aint gonn happen so im saying something intelligent rather then asking....XD

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:27 PM
I've seen about 3 or 4 people ask without acutally saying it...piro your sig picture is to big.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:28 PM
Meh i guess im not alone then huh? ^^ Well thats good! because its bad to direct these things directly....lol

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:29 PM
That'd be cool to be a mod. Havent really done anything to deserve it though, just like helping out people....corney as it sounds.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:31 PM
lol i think we have things in common :P we say things that are supposed to sound good but end up corny.... but Blue i dont know you to much but at first when i saw you in the dragons club when i knew nothing of PC i thought you were a mod...:P i think you should be one

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 04:33 PM
That is what I figured blue, about my sig pic, but I wasn't sure. *Goes to resize it.*

Sounds kinda obvious when you say it like that though.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:38 PM
So? doesnt matter....I think you seem well i dunno how to put it...important maybe XD im weird...and i always seem so miniscule....

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 04:43 PM
OK, back, and the sig picture should be fine now. If it's not, then just let me know. Anyway, what were we talking about again?

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:43 PM
I seem important? Well that makes one person who thinks so...ya I have a mini-fanclub!

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 04:44 PM
I think you seem important too, Blue. I don't know what is it about you, but you just do.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:45 PM
lol....i dunno.... i just think weird things.... XD I have a fan club have you seen it? and lol a mod joined it Jkaizer did XD

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:46 PM
But your more well known arent you? Thats why you have the club.

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 04:47 PM
That club is still going? Dang! Anyway that is off topic sorry. Yes, you do seem important blue. Maybe it's because of your post count or something.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:48 PM
*looks around* are you talking to ME? XD me? well known? how do you figure? *is a very humble person* XD

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 04:52 PM
I think he was talking to you eliana. He wasn't talking to me, that is for sure. So it must have been you!:)

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:52 PM

Thought post counts dident really matter? Ya I was talking to elina.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:52 PM
lol they dont....but Blue how do you figure I'm well known? XD

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:53 PM
lol they dont....but Blue how do you figure I'm well known? XD
Hmm lets see...you have your own fan club? More well known then me.

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 04:53 PM
They don't matter. I just said maybe it seems like your important because you have such a high post count, as most staff members do.

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:55 PM
They don't matter. I just said maybe it seems like your important because you have such a high post count, as most staff members do.
a1337a has a small count dosent she?

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:55 PM
Lol...... Well thats not technically true.... i have a higher count then a lot of Mods...XD dont matter....

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 04:56 PM
Note how I said "most staff members." not all.:P

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:57 PM
I know just saying...dont have to have a high post count to be liked better see compare me and elina.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 04:57 PM
Lol good point. XD Well post count isnt everything....

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 04:58 PM
YOur right thats how people with low counts are able to be mods.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 05:00 PM
I do have to admit.... i use to think that getting high post count meant you would get to be a mod...but its not true...well it shows your are devoted but thats not everything...

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 05:01 PM
Ya see i'd give up this post count for at least a hundred meaningfull post.....or the abillity to write in english better

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 05:04 PM
you write pretty well ^^ but ya can always get better right? ^^

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 05:06 PM
I guess...at least I dont have a accent anymore...that sucked.

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 05:07 PM
you had an accent? COOL!!!!!! XD lol we are off topicing....:P

Ryoutarou
August 18th, 2004, 05:08 PM
We were for a few post mostly it has been on topic/

Eliana
August 18th, 2004, 05:11 PM
yeah *is proud of self* XD well maybe if a mod would see this they would post i wanna see their opinion about this...

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 05:30 PM
Yes, blue, you can always get better at writing. Everyone can. And I would also give up all of my posts for 100 meaningful posts.

Kairi
August 18th, 2004, 06:15 PM
This is getting off topic, and his question was answered long ago. @_@; If you’ve got more to say about modding, perhaps but otherwise it’s getting a lil spammy.

ravenstorture
August 18th, 2004, 06:18 PM
Yes, we have been going off topic guys. Sorry Kairi! You can close it if you want.

Ice demon
August 18th, 2004, 06:37 PM
Ya, well at least people are starting to catch on thst being s mod involves work, and a good deal of it. I've allways known that so it irks me when people sk admins to be a mod just for the title.

Well Blue since i figured out that before u even joined i guess the part with starting to catch on may not apply to me XP....................

Well IMO this topic has been milked passed capacity and before the Spam gets out of control lets close it.

Blaze
August 18th, 2004, 07:30 PM
Yes,

That is quite true. As a mod at PWC-DF Forums (the biggest of all I work for). It's not all fun and games.

You practically have to go through every single post to make sure nothing is bad and is not against the rules so yeah that is all for Blaze's Closing Thoughs :D

*Blaze Out

(Kairi like my new typing ;) )

I was here for four months, and then I got randomly modded ^_^

Ryoutarou
August 19th, 2004, 04:30 AM
randomly? how the heck did that happen.

KLS
August 19th, 2004, 06:22 AM
well i've been here for 3 years and i still didn't get picked
see it's random it depends on the way you behave
and they monitor your every movement

Arcanine
August 19th, 2004, 08:34 AM
randomly? how the heck did that happen.She was picked without being in a group of members getting Modded.

well i've been here for 3 years and i still didn't get picked
see it's random it depends on the way you behave
and they monitor your every movement Like I said on Page 2, PC has not even been here 2 years. It started on October 16th 2002. So on the 16th of Oct it will be 2 years for PC.

Frostweaver
August 19th, 2004, 08:46 AM
Nope... PC existed for a longer time than < 2 years. It's just that the reference only traced back so much. If you include PC's days before vbulletin, you do get 3 years or so.

Arcanine

Nope... PC existed for a longer time than < 2 years. It's just that the reference only traced back so much. If you include PC's days before vbulletin, you do get 3 years or so.The old PC was started on Oct 16th. They upgraded to vB on Jan 16th 2003. So when they moved to vB they changed the dates and stuff to what it was on the old board.
And if you are going back to the old one where Erica was on that board was only open for 6 months or so.

Well, lets face it, Hardly any of us are ever, going to be important on the forums, Like a mod, etc, If we beg! I think your judged on the way you act,post, Talk to other members, and obviously if you post like the starter of this thread, your not going to be a mod!

Thomas

Well, that is just the way it is. There is only a certian amount that the admin/pretors want to be mods, so not everyone can be one. Right now there is 25 regular mods and 28 main forums (not including sub forums or the announcement forum.) So if they only want one mod for each forum then that means there is limited spots.

Also, I think the question got answered somewhere on these 5 pages, dont you think?

Well, lets face it, Hardly any of us are ever, going to be important on the forums, Like a mod, etc, If we beg! I think your judged on the way you act,post, Talk to other members, and obviously if you post like the starter of this thread, your not going to be a mod!
the first part i disagree sure we are all not important but we can make ourselves important (and no not by spamming,flaming etc)
the second part yeah your right
it's by the way you behave and act

Who is spreading rumors that I got remodded? O.o

Do you fail to notice the lack of "Moderator" under my title? >_> I'd love it back... but I gave it up to prove a point.


Anyways, like said, becoming a moderator isn't all fun and games.

[mod leak]
In the lounge... there is a sticky... and guess what?

It's Mod Rules.
[/mod leak]

Mods can't do whatever they please, they have to follow the rules set down for the entire board, plus bonus ones. Sure, it's a nice little title, but it does require some work.

Timbjerr
August 21st, 2004, 05:15 PM
OMG!! someone's leaking info! XD
We do have to follow rules, but nothing major. They're basically guidelines as to how to handle certain situations...

Well, that is just the way it is. There is only a certian amount that the admin/pretors want to be mods, so not everyone can be one. Right now there is 25 regular mods and 28 main forums (not including sub forums or the announcement forum.) So if they only want one mod for each forum then that means there is limited spots.

actually, some mods (like me) cover two or three forums, that way we cover all of those 28 forums with only 25 mods...with the exception of the Pokemon TCG forum, which has been modless ever since Dakota was promoted to S-mod...

Thomas
August 21st, 2004, 05:51 PM
Well, I guess there is not that many people who know that much about the TCG. I just looked at the forum leaders and there are some who mod more than one forum. I guess there could be alot more mods.

aRedMoon
August 21st, 2004, 06:16 PM
Yes~ Another leak! =o

And people are modded in areas that they seem strong in. Like Jedi_Amara was given Webbies because she's in there all the time. And if TCG needs a mod that bad... then someone will be appointed there in time. =/

The way you guys are discussing becoming a Mod makes me think of someone being drafted. I think it's neat that PC tries to suprise people when they become a Mod instead of giving them advanced warning. - As in dear ole a1337a's case. Suprise, suprise! XD

No since PC is running on the one where you pay like $180 bucks and you don't have to pay any more (thanks to V-Road for that since PC was running on a one year thing).

And here is Scotty's story. It's going to be the first one page best selling book. XD
(I made this post so when I say I it's me XD)


"I remember my best IM chat with an Admin *goes back in one of that remember modes* it was with Kwesi, it was like 3 am and we was talking about Mods (it was Scotty's group) and Scott's name came up and we was talking on PC with PMs and I told Kwesi that I was going to tell Scotty that he was going to ban Scotty and Kwesi liked the idea and told me to do it. So I did and it went to well, Scotty though he was going to get banned and then left PC and only came back the next day to see if he was banned or not, but he got a shock to find out he was Modded (True story, I wonder if Kwesi will see this post and say something about it). XD"

JK hit it pretty well, on the old PC there might have been three or four active mods, so they were quicker to promote and add them. o_o; There weren’t even rules.
And there’s nothing magical about selecting a mod, someone suggests that they have good qualities that would make them mod worthy, the others discuss it, and then they’re modded.

Yea the rank Praetor is just on PC (maybe on some other boards that got it from PC but PC is the only large forum that has Praetor as a rank). Abby came up with it when she was playing FFX-2 (I think that is what she said, ask her on how she came up with it XD) and now I have it, all to myself (maybe I should edit and color and all that other stuff XD).

I know that there arent any secrets. But everyone is talking about it like they are. They are all like "Hey if you are nice to other members, you might become a mod"
"Hey if you are dedicated to PC, then you might become a mod."

People say it as if it was some secret unknown to mankind, that being obeying rules and being affable and respectful might actually get you somewhere.

Those are manners/rules like that apply anywhere, including PC, so I don't see why so many people make a big deal about learning how to become a mod.

D) Add notes to a topic
E) Go into the lounge (Which is full of OT)
F) See the T-Dome before it's open (:P That's how it was)

I think in honor of the elections this year, we should vote a member of PC to be a Mod! I won't run, but its a good idea! I nominate Daegon Kimeron.



*waits for people to call Brittany an idiot*

Don't Admin have to have their own website?

Their should be a new class(or group watever its called)

Lol, that would be kind of funny. X3 But... I dunno about the access to the Mod Lounge. =\ Sometimes we do actually talk about important things in there and the reason it's hidden is so members can't see it. So just giving any random member access and then stripping it away later on might not be the best idea. x_x; *hates being so negative on ideas all the time when she comes up with the downsides* XD;

Brittany
August 23rd, 2004, 08:20 AM
It's not just a random member! It is a member chosen by the people!

Heres an Idea... Every mod/s-mod/praetor/????/admin nominates one person. Then PC decides from the list.

Wow, I am getting more serious about this every time I post about it! XD

aRedMoon
August 23rd, 2004, 10:51 AM
Or maybe you could have people nominate themselves? Make a thread in OC, get a bunch of nominations, then make a primary to decide the final canidates, then they could go around trying to get people to vote for 'em. XD

And Erica, if a member got voted into "office", they would have to be rather well liked around the board, so it wouldn't be a complete newbie. And it's not like we're giving them access to the AdminCP. XD

Wait a minute, this sounds like a good idea, but unfortunatly we would have to get the admins permission to do this, and I doubt that they would let us hold such a competition.

Well, everything starts with an idea, but someone has to have the initiative to make it a reality.

Yes but you forget one thing...it's an idea from me...meaning it's never going to happen.

Well, even though it was your idea somone could take it even further, but I still doubt it will ever happen.

That would be kinda cool though, a restart to pc idol lol.

I have an idea...out of all the PC mods/smods/preators/kairi/admins who is the most like Randy, Paula, and Simon?

August 23rd, 2004, 02:06 PM
Ok, were starting to stary off into spam a little arent we? Anyway's i'd say Dakota is like simon, dont like him but usally makes the right choices.

hey, this "president" thing sounds cool! i was getting excited just reading about it! i mean.... the person wouldnt have mod powers, cause that might not be very good... but the colored name and possibly the access to the mod boards would be cool! just the only thing is... the admins permission...^^' doesnt sound good...

aRedMoon
August 23rd, 2004, 05:59 PM
Well, I think someone should PM one of the admins and ask them to read the topic and show their opinion. The worst they can say is "No," right?

Thomas
August 23rd, 2004, 06:12 PM
I guess I could do that, but then they might think it is my idea and get mad at me...*runs away and hides*XD

aRedMoon
August 23rd, 2004, 06:15 PM
I could I guess. I'm the one that PMed them about the T-Dome. XD

Thomas
August 23rd, 2004, 06:21 PM
Well, they respect you because they made you a mod, so you should do it. I shouldnt do it cause I dont think they like me :(

aRedMoon
August 23rd, 2004, 06:29 PM
.......

They didn't make me a mod. My modship was determined by the S-Mods and Sub-Admins...

*sighs missing modship...*



I'll send it tomorrow.

Thomas
August 23rd, 2004, 06:34 PM
Wow, they make the decision? I thought they had to verify all actions with the admins?

Ice demon
August 23rd, 2004, 06:38 PM
IMO the president thing will be exactly what most members think mod ship is all about - a bold name and some recognition.................

It shall all be about popularity and to be honest PC doesn't need any help in that catagory................................................

so in conclusion i really see it as a bad idea..................

Blissey Trainer 8290
August 23rd, 2004, 06:54 PM
i dont see what is bad about it, cause it might not be up to the members... it might be up to the mods/s-mods/admin/preator/abby/ anyone else of high powerXP... so it wont be about popularity... unless the members decide(like MOTM)

Ice demon
August 23rd, 2004, 07:26 PM
Yes i realize that it is all for fun but honestly
why waste the mods/s.mods etc etc etc time
+ what is the point???????

I really see it boiling down to popularity
I mean what conditions would the mods use except being totally random/it being some one they know.............................

Brittany
August 23rd, 2004, 07:31 PM
It's better if mods make the nominations, because it shows that the person is a better candidate. If the person has caught a mod's eye, then obviously, they must have some similar traits.

Plus having Mods/S-Mods/Praetor/?????/Admin nominate, gives PC about 40 candidates.

And finally, letting Mods/S-Mods/Praetor/?????/Admin nominate, is an idea more likely to get passed by Admin, because if the candidates get nominated from PC members, there is a larger chance that the 'President' would be a screw-up.

I hope this actually gets passed... we will probably just humor Admins when they hear this, XD.

Ice demon
August 23rd, 2004, 07:48 PM
Yes but why would they nominate someone to go prancing about flaunting their psuedo modship???

It really makes no sense in my mind..............

it just all relates back to popularity.

But if is in the name of fun i guess they can give it a try......
i guess...........

So you're saying that mods get modded because they're popular?

Let me ask you this: How popular was I before I was modded?

Brittany

THATs the point, if they(mods and admin) nominate the person, then the person wouldn't be a person that is just prancing about their pseudo modship!

If PC selects the person on thier own, then their is a large chance of the person being a moron. Just let them nominate the candidates... I'm sure they don't mind, most of them would be amused with the idea, and actually give a candidate.

That's why I didn't like the idea of the Mod test all that much. I mean sure we are the ones that pick the Mods but some one will feel better if they got picked without asking. They feel like they stood out from the other members and got picked as a Mod.

You are probably right. I bet if you ask all the people that got randomly picked that, they would say they felt they stood out, or was doing a good job as a member.

Brittany
August 23rd, 2004, 07:57 PM
Wow, people are starting to say my ideas were right from the begining! I feel loved! XD

Arcanine, what do you think the chances are of this actually happening?

1 in a million? XD

Thomas
August 23rd, 2004, 08:08 PM
I would say 1/1000 and there are about 4000 members. So there is limited spots for mods. So 4 out of all the members in the next 1/2 year?

Ice demon
August 23rd, 2004, 08:15 PM

Let me ask you this: How popular was I before I was modded?

Oni do u even know what they are talking about??
being modded means u actually do stuff
this is just a person who gets to go around with a title and intrude in the Mod lounge...................
thats it....................

and the only reason everyone is so happy is because they are hoping that they would be picked..............................again popularity.

Thomas
August 23rd, 2004, 08:16 PM
Well, that is partly true. Mods are usally popular with the members and are good members so it is 1/2 true.

Ice demon
August 23rd, 2004, 08:24 PM
Anyway if u want this u are going to have to lobby for it..............

and u better get a good few mods etc into it.

Thomas
August 23rd, 2004, 08:26 PM
It also helps if you have a good rep with all the mods and higher members. Sometimes you do things that you can never recover from.

Brittany
August 23rd, 2004, 08:27 PM
I still think that letting this get based on popularity is stupid. What if Fudge01 got picked? xD

Thats exactly why Mods/S-Mods/Praetor/?????/Admin, should make the nominations!

If it's that way, then we wouldn't have a disaster. Hmm... We still haven't even gotten this passed! XD!

aRedMoon
August 23rd, 2004, 09:43 PM
Should I send it to all 4 (Kwesi, VRoad, Zapchu, & Steve) or just one of them? O.o

Brittany

All of them!

BTW: if this gets passed, Daegon Kimeron better get nominated.

And maybe you'll get nominated. :P

I had a dream, and in it I was a mod...(wierd yet?)

Then while I was minding my own.... all of a sudden Ninjas pop out of nowhere!

They were trying to hack PC, and I was the only Mod online at the time! I had to protect PC myself! Then one of the ninjas tried to hurt a 6 year old pokemon loving kid, and I had to kick his butt!

Then the hacking ninjas went over to where Kwesi was! And Kwesi was asleep(in my dream, anyone who's not online is asleep, XD), and they tried to hurt him, but I had to give all of them a butt-kicking too!

Then all of a sudden.... I was surrounded by the hacking ninjas and they were trying to kill me! I tried to give them a butt-kicking, but I started to get tired and they started to hurt me, and right before I died, I woke up.

I have the wierdest dreams after a night partying...

It's about President, a new group that we are trying to get passed.

The President has a different colored Admin font(like Kairi and Arcanine), and little or possibly no power.

So basically a demi-mod or a mod-in-training? I like that idea. A lot.

Basically, but PC only elects one President

<IDEA>

PC elects a President and a Vice President.

President has Mod powers and Vice President has less-than-mod powers, but they both share the same font.

Wow I get great ideas, XD
