I really don't want to do this here, but if you're going to make it public then I'll play.

Well, I will concede defeat here. I mean, the wild success of the feedback thread speaks for itself.
I don't know why the staff added you as a mod. I was running the forum just fine until
Well I can't exactly speak for their thought process but it seems the fact that I
added means the h-staff beg to differ
Now it's all "you better leave me reports" and "you better tell me everything you do before you do it" and "I'm all better than you".
What reports? We get NO reports. The combination of the fact that OVP members are extremely well behaved and the fact that none of them seem to understand where the report button is or how to use it means that there are NO reports.
You're now part of the problem instead of part of the solution.
That's because there is no problem. OVP is fine exactly as it is. Look, I know you're trying to be a good mod here by coming up with these ideas for how to improve the place and make yourself
useful, but I think knowing when to stop is just as important. The section is incredibly active and people enjoy it just as it is. Why are we trying to change something that works? All I'm seeing here is "this annoys me so I wanna change it". It's not at all in the best interests of OVP - in fact, it's incredibly self-serving.
Let's get one thing straight: OVP is
forum. I just let you mod there. Now shut up and do as I say.
lol if you say so.
No, I don't think the forum will turn into a complete spampit. You see, I'll be ruling it with an iron fist. I have been way too nice as of late. I'll infract the second they start spamming. If they want to spam, they'll soon be banned. Then we'll used the banned members as an example and there will be no troubles.
As of late? I've been posting in OVP since like April last year and I have never seen a mod be so lenient. The only way you could rule with an iron fist is if you purchased one from eBay. All that these changes mean is that
will be ruling with an iron fist to comply with new rules I don't even agree with.

are you talking about here. Have you really actually
in the Trivia sections? There are plenty of games in which have more than four words. And hell definitely not
words. Do you think Netto and I aren't doing our jobs or something? And look. We aren't the only place that has only four words and those places
have post counts up. Heck I see plenty of posts in
section that people only put in four-five words and that's it. What do you think of that?
The Trivia section is more than just some
section in which people just oh so randomly posts. We have several games and in which require more thought!
Ugh, one crazy woman at a time, please.
Look, I'm sorry. I'm sure you and Netto do a fine job with what you've been given, I didn't mean to imply that it was badly modded. I'm sure the Trivia sections are a pretty perfect version of what they are. But... The Count to Infinity? Don't Let The Mods Say Zero? Come on. They're just spammy DCCs with numbers at the top of each post. I'm not telling you anything you don't know here lol.
ANYWAY we're digressing. I think the point to take away from this is that OVP is a post count section and should remain that way, because it's change for the sake of change and that should ALWAYS be discouraged.
