You know this is why the DCC is fun, one minute we're talking about God only knows what, and then out of nowhere it's laundry! Heh.

Anyways, I... don't know how to reply to either of these...

There's a set of guidelines in the section that's more about the mechanics of how to use reports and how to do things like separate one post from a thread into its own thread and stuff, and then they set you loose. It's more difficult but it's not like...more than you can see really. XD;
That's more than I ever got lol. I did figure out how all of it works though, so I kinda did everything on a whim lol. But yeah. It's not too much more, though. So it's not too bad I suppose.

I dig this. I'd like to see DCC become more lax on the rules, like the whole "keep on topic with the previous post" ones. It used to be way more active and way more fun before we started beating people over the head with that one. :P

Toujours is lying about this. In actuality there's a 306 page Moderator Handbook that details exactly how to respond to every situation and how to become a leader of your small little section of the community.

Let me guess. If you order now, you get free shipping? Or is available in an eBook?

Modding is not all fun and games. Believe me I know and I am a mod on another forum. I still like it though :) Fun at times, but a lot of work XD

It makes sense! I mean when I first started posting in the DCC (One of the older DCCs), the OP scared me away for a while xD Well it was more like the rules in the OP but you get what I mean :p

I've had a tiny taste of moderation in the past on a brand new forum one of my old friends made.

And then this random hacker took over and kept posting SPAM accounts and hijacked the site. He made like 50 different accounts. I only got to permaban one. :C

I wouldn't be surprised if that's pretty close to their actual guide - that's if they have one. And given that there's a lot of good staffers here, they probably do.

I'm just reading though that entire page and thinking "Holy crap, Nick, that's a lot of writing!"

But it seems pretty solid from what I see.

I don't think HTsaff would have gone through the trouble of writing a whole new document like that for an AF prank! If you ask me and this is strictly speculation, I'd say that the one I linked above is a copy of the real one! I don't know, it just doesn't seem like a problem to reveal the moderator duty thread. It's not like it has any secrets lmao.

EDIT: HStaff* xD What the hell is HTsaff anyways?

Yeah. Probably a copy/paste. Might have been edited a touch, but it looks rather solid.

I'm totally wandering around that forum now haha.

I think it would be pretty cool to moderate, but I doubt I ever would be selected solely because I have VM/PM blocked (I'm sure this would create problems, if someone wanted to ask me something), among other reasons haha.
It probably would haha. I think mods can truns those off for themselves, although it is rather inconvenient.

Im sure they'd have people in mind :)

I dunno what their conditions are for choosing people obviously but I think the VM thing would be a trivial thing though.

Eh, oops.

I'm wondering the same thing, Jz. Also wondering if some of the moderators are ticked off by all of this forum stuff being switched around, changing their work.

...Am I the only one who was confused by the new names and all that? Haha it took me a minute to find the polls- I'm used to having to pull up another internet tab so OVP can load while I browse the latest DCC posts.

Well, seeing as the sections just got swapped today, they're not worrying about that until they update the rest of the site and all that stuff. Plus, someone would also have to see who could even apply to be on that list.

I bet they're always thinking of worthy contestants for the entire forum, the hstaff.

Definitely the ones that need a new mod. Dunno if CCP needs one, to be totally honest. It'd be cool, but possibly redundant.

You could always check the Small Updates & Changes thread! [Link]
Usually most developments are either posted there or in the Announcements forum if they're significant enough :p

Yeah I was kind of confused at first but then I thought "I'll check the update thread" and sure enough, my favorite section.. OVP.. was merged!

Not really, the DCC and Celebrations forum were moved here but D&D are still in the old OC&D... If that makes any sense to you at all :p

I think Video Games is open, actually. AFAIK, Captain Fabio is still watching it, even as an S-Mod, until someone suitable can be promoted there.

It's weird to think of sections as "open". Like you want to be a mod and section doesn't matter. >_<

I am so ignorant of the other sections that I had no idea what you just said. Hahaha! All I know is that my precious OVP was merged with .. some foreign place!

May I ask what DCC is?
