I personnally say, no. It just wastes your time and it is a chore, it is too much responsibility.

plus, the challange of it would be fun :P

I am in between it. Kinda do, kinda don't. Being a mod is challenging, but I am on other forums, its kinda tough being an Admin/Mod when theres also like no one on your forums. *sighs* I wish I could get other ppl to join, but theres no advertising allowed.

I guess.But i'm just happy to be able to talk to my friends.

What are the benefits of a mod on this site besides the signature editing and thread closing? On SPPf you can have custom avatars.

Mods can't edit sigs O.o; And plus anyone can have a custom ava here XD

They could for a short bit until a mod got hacked and sigs got edited. You get the Mod Lounge too. XD Though I've heard its different than from when I was a mod.

I'd say I want to be a mod, but asking makes your chances nil. ;p

Kyogre-chan
March 31st, 2005, 03:17 PM
From my current point of view? Nope! I'm already a mod. XP

From a non-mod point of view? Of course! I'm always looking for ways to help the community, and to moderate is to help the community. Also, as many moderators have said before, moderating requires responsibility, and there are more advantages of being a regular member as opposed to a moderator, though I'm willing to accept that.

Well I'd personally gived up hope in ever excelling in forums after well..I'd perfer not to talk about it.
If I'd ever been given a chance to be a mod, I'd regain mah confidence here. So I suppose it wouldn't hurt. I hope this dosen't count as asking though..

March 31st, 2005, 05:01 PM
Offcourse I would love to be a mod or even a super mod. I like to get responsibilites. I have always wanted to be one of these. But I don't really know that will I become a mod or not. But still I have hope that I will become one. One day.

You can't edit sigs here unless you're higher staff, and everyone on PC can have custom avatars, Crystal Clair.
1. You get a prettier name than the mods at SPPf ;P
2. You can get a coloured profile
3. You have access to Spam World - erm, the mod areas.
4. All the normal mod benefits.

Don't think modship is all benefit though. >>; It's also responsibility.
Of course, the good balances all the responsibility out =D

But, when I wasn't a mod, heck I wanted to be one. XD
1. I wanted to tell people off that were bugging me with their flaming and stuff.
2. I wanted the power to warn people for their sigs. I was reporting a lot of sigs as I recall. XD
3. I wanted the power to lock threads, etc. I was ALWAYS reporting, especially on IM [Bunny got the worst of that XD] and I still am. XP
4. I wanted to be a mod on the second biggest Pokmon forum on the net~

Well I guess if I was the mod of the sprite comics forum, than it wouldn't be so bad, it isn't very active anyway.

I guess I'd want to be a mod. It's pretty boring, just being a little member.Mods actually have something to do. Members only post around XD

However, I wouldnt want to be one right now. But after the Presidential Elections sounds great. I wouldnt want to get kicked out of the elections for being modded, and then lose my only chance at getting a cool colored name XD

Yep! I mean, there's no way in the wide world I'm going to be a mod~! ^_~ I'm spammy, annoying, irritating, useless, and I've been banned! XP

Oooh, what's that? *pokes her silver name* Omg, I've been modded =O

You said it. I've been a mod for god knows how many years. wtf was I thinking when I accepted the deal (like 2 years ago!)? Then again, it's kinda nice to have the power to help (many things) when you need it.

You'd rather be a mod than a super mod*is confused* oh well, being a mod is fun and all. let's go party.O.O PM me if u wanna know my forums.

That's EXACTLY what I did here in PC, went from s-mod to mod (it was my request to a certain extent). ;)

yeah it sure would be a cool thing! ^.^
if so you could really help the community!

Lady Pearl
March 31st, 2005, 06:20 PM
Nah, I wouldn't like to be a moderator anymore. ;3 After facing many difficulties, I just want to relax with all of my friends and be a caring member without moderation. ^^; I wouldn't like the power since I don't like to close threads in front of the creators of the threads. I could help the community even if I wasn't a moderator and still be proud. ^__^

B-Baller
March 31st, 2005, 07:26 PM
Yes and no. Yes, because its a whole new challenge for me to handle such a big forum. No, because I'm already a mod/admin on too many forums, and the head admins say "You're doing a perfect job!" XD

Arcanine
March 31st, 2005, 08:45 PM
This might come to a shock to a lot of you but. No I wouldn't want to be a Mod.
I would be happy with Praetor or Admin but I wouldn't take a Mod or S-Mod spot. A lot of you think we have it good being Staff. It's not true, being a member some times is a great thing (a lot of you don't know how good you got it). Being a Mod is no walk in the park, and most of the Mods don't get enough respect from members and credit for their work on PC. On another forum I'm on I have lots of fun (I can go post spammy type posts, do dares and other things), the head Admin wanted to Admin me there but I turned it down. I wanted to be a member, not Mod, not S-Mod, not Admin.
Right now after knowing all sides from every rank (other then Prez and VP) I would say if I was to get Modded right now then I don't think I would say yes. Yes being a Mod is something not everone gets, and all members that are asked should say yes. But I will add being a Mod isn't what everyone thinks (it's not lock a few threads and you're done, it's more then that).

Crimson King
March 31st, 2005, 09:17 PM
getting modded really aint that big of a thing for me, i enjoy just being able to post here, but if i was ever to be given the opportunity to become one than i guess i would say yes (or no, depends what forum i would be modded to ;3)

Lust
March 31st, 2005, 09:36 PM
Yes, I would. It would be a big responsibility but I think I could handle it.

My Master Goal and dream is to be with FG and Moonlight as moderaiter of the Art gallery, My number one favorite place in the world and a bunch of people that need protection^.^!

:nods: I voted yes for that ^^
But I would love to be a mod anywhere in PC , to help protect and serve would be a honor above all in the world *.*.

I'v been a mod in two other pokemon sites but one fell cause I was the only one there that was a active mod, however that was only one of them. Pokemon world is a good place but I havent been there moding for a while because the place died out after a week of action.
I'v also been a admin once,it was alot of tough work so I wished to drop back down to a Mod.
I know they dont get the respect mods deserve, but just the thought of helping such a site is an amazing thing to me and I would be more then abligated to take part in protecting it.

O_O When I joined though it said not to beg for a spot or you will be band.
So I shut my mouth here befor I start proveing reasons why I would be a good mod in the art gallery and/or other chat Baords XD

ryan
April 2nd, 2005, 10:27 AM
maybe... i used to resent mods to a degree, but most of them alright and it would probably be an honor to be associated with them. however, i don't know what i would moderate and i'm really not sure exactly what mods do other than tell people to stop talking trash/double posting/and close threads gone bad... but it would still be fun.

Dark Sora
April 2nd, 2005, 10:40 AM

If I had the knowlage that I did today, I would never want to be a moderator. I thought I would be more popular as a mod... but interestingly enough, I was asked for help more often as a normal member then a mod.

Poke
April 2nd, 2005, 08:11 PM
Meh..... I really dont care...... sure itd be fun..... probably make you more popular but really it doesnt matter. I mean I wouldnt mind being one but being a novice member is fine.

That's why I go to SPPf, Jess. XD [Congrats on s-modship, btw <3]
Of course, I could do with a holiday. XD A Smogon attack on my forum, doing a lot of locking, updating lists, telling people off, helping people, and going into Computer Help & Discussion =O I'll be dead by next Tuesday. XD

April 3rd, 2005, 05:18 AM
Poke: Shut up, you obviously don't know what you were talking about. I was a mod for several months. The only reason I regret being fired is that it makes it a lot harder to help people from this side of the fence.

because I can tell you they just want it for the priveleges. They think that sayin they would because they want to "help people" isnt their main reason for wanting to be a mod........Hardly. I have quite a lot of experience as a mod, from other forums. I know how it works. As other mods have said, you often find yourself wondering what the HFIL you were thinking when you accepted the job. But meh. I'm not in it for the advantages, I'm in it to help.

As for others… well, people seem to think that modship = popularity. I really wish some of those wannabe mods could actually become mods, so they'd know what it's like before they go around blabbering about how they deserve it and such.

But still, you have no right in saying that. Sure, there's a few people in it for the advantages (which basically signals a power hungry mod), but that doesn't mean everybody is.

Poke
April 3rd, 2005, 05:35 AM
Im not saying there great. You completly MISUNDERSTOOD my meaning. Some people might THINK they would have better advantages. What they THINK is that saying they want to help people might increase their chance. Im not saying your modship powers are great Im just saying other people might THINK they are great..... thats all.......


EDIT: o okay my bad...... Ill respect whatever you say and believe that some people are in for helping but not all.....

Kyogre-chan
April 3rd, 2005, 05:42 AM

Actually, believe it or not, the most active part of PC is Art Gallery, followed by Pokmon Handheld Platform Games. Other Chat comes in at 4th place, after RomHacking/Pokmon GB Emulation. In terms of the moderation-needy forums, Other Chat comes 3rd, after New Users/Welcome and MCG. o.o;

Actually, it's more fun then it is responsibility. Granted, you do have to look for spammy threads and stuff, and close them and reprimand the n00bs, but that part is also fun. Plus the notoriety and instant fame make it well worth it. XD.

Lord Jaws
April 5th, 2005, 07:15 PM
Lol I see no1 fell for the poll there. But Ill take the bait and say yes, being a Mod would be good. My 'area of expertise' if i may say so msyelf is the Strategies and Movesets section. And every time I go there and see no Mod I feel we are missing out. No1 to speak for us, no one to run the joint. So yes, I would like it. Although I get teh feeling this was a trap for catching out ppl asking for mods XD.

ravenstorture
April 5th, 2005, 07:41 PM
I doubt I would ever be allowed to be a mod again, but if I did get an offer, yes I would take it. If not, I am happy being a normal member. Is it something I strive for and think about? No. So I guess I am on the fence on this one. :)

Lion Heart

heh, i don't know why I'm answering this question but anyways...

It would be great modding at PC but as we all know, PC already has enough staff members as it is and the chances of being picked is very low... :P

plus, being a normie is fine also.
