If you decide to do that, you'd end up removing the entire staff. You already have plenty of people who oppose what you're doing with this whole moderator review thing you've decided to do, and now that you've removed Fabio and Syd, you're going to get a lot more opposers. If you remove me, you're probably going to get a lot more too.

Because if you do remove me, I won't hesitate to spread the news that I was removed from staff to the members, despite being incredibly contributive and effective in doing my job (if I do say so myself), because I had a disagreement with the new administrator because he didn't like the attitudes of two of our moderators.

Why don't you just do your job and I do mine? How's that sound?

Except part of my job is mod reviews. Unless you plan on sharing your reviews with the rest of hstaff, then I don't think that's going to fly. Not for me or anybody else.

I refuse to do that. This is an administrative matter.

Then I'm afraid that doesn't sound like a plan, Stan. :(

The HQ forum description states: [...]This section should house, but isn't limited to, moderator supervision,[...]

moderator supervision
moderator supervision
moderator supervision
moderator supervision
moderator supervision

So I'm going to bring it back to what we said before: If you want to review the moderators (or even the smods), you need to do it the right way. Review moderators in HQ, review us smods in PAD with the rest of the admins. You can't go around doing things just because you may think that's how they should be. Removing Sydian and Fabio was completely unnecessary and uncalled for just because you found their attitudes to be undesirable. It is not an administrative matter, it's an HQ matter and should be treated as such. Things have been that way for years and we've never had a problem with the way things operate. Simply because you disagree with it isn't enough of a reason for me to think that that's how things should be. This is not a tyranny, this is an oligarchy.

Now I'm done with this. Once an admin sees what you did, they'll probably reverse it and fix the problem anyway.

I support this action 100% and can see no ill effects. Bring it on.

Just so you guys know, we've been arguing with him over this in PAD for days, and he's being even more of a complete and utter douche up there than he is here in the Lounge.

If he demotes any of you, I will personally re-promote you. I tried to do it for Fabio and Syd but they were too disgusted to come back as long as he's still on staff.

I'm starting to get sick and tired of you people coming at me like I'm the enemy!! I came here to help you guys out, not to get *****ed at by all of you. If you disagree with me being here, that's fine. But the fact of the matter is that I'm here, and that's not going to change. Not now, and not any time soon.

I don't need people overstepping my decisions.

Do not rush me. I will be posting the reviews at the same time. Seeing as how your username is at the top of the forum leader's page and how I've already removed Captain Fabio and Sydian, it should be easy to assume that I've already looked at you, Abnegation. It's only a matter of patience that you'll need. Your lack of it is a serious concern, however.

Being assertive is important for administrators. You're a moderator, you aren't supposed to be assertive, which is why you're not an administrator. You're supposed to be friendly and approachable as a moderator.

You should consider that in your review before you judge me as a character, dear Lerroux. You may be in a higher position than me, but I, have been in this position a lot longer than you've been around.

If you were in it for as long as you said you've been in it, maybe you would have been an administrator by then.

Nah, around these parts, it seems the other way around. Administrators pop out of thin air, and thin positive personal traits.

How old are you? I want to say you have the logic of an 8 year old, but considering most 8 year olds are a lot more level-headed than you, I think that'd be a serious insult to 8 year olds across the world. Start acting your age.

If you want to help, help. Helping doesn't mean doing whatever you damn well please.

Our jobs are primarily to post in HQ and handle community-wide issues brought to us by members, and all of us do just a fine job doing that.
God no wonder you're suck lazy ****s now. Back in my day they had us modding **** 24/7! I bet I had double the logs you do now.

Your activity isn't the best, sammi-san. I like your attitude, and I like the way you're agreeing with me. We need more of that around here, but your activity could be much much better. I was going to remove you, but now I'm going to have to reconsider.

...That's because OVP has intelligent members and there isn't much moderating to do. Sammi and I may not see eye to eye on happenings in the forums, but being a former OVP mod, it doesn't need much upkeeping. You need to be a bit more subjective and not hold people to the exact same standards.

Maybe try the tactic of talking to the person in question before immediate removal?

Not that you know anything about reason so not sure why I'm bothering.
