hey level fourty two swordmaster
why don't you start your own board if you are so goddamn bored and annoyed with what happens on this one
this is not your little project to SPICE UP whenever you damn well feel like it
you are a child and your view on how things should be run is childish
seyon and STE were chosen as moderators because they are big contributors and are doing their jobs and doing it well. it might look easy but moderating is sadly not as enjoyable and simple as it might seem. especially when you have 10,000 people to look after and stand up to when you make moderating decisions. or even just a core group of 40 or 50 people who scrutinize your every choice. also i can't imagine what kind of work would actually get accomplished if the moderating team is a constant revolving door. the best team can work together for long periods of time and develop rhythms. shifting new people in and out does not seem ideal in any way. we are here because we love the coma and want to shape it and make it something that will last. the reality is that it is impossible to make every single one of you happy...so get over it. you aren't going to like everything that is done here but you are all free to take up every issue with one or all of the moderators. you aren't being ignored and we do listen and discuss your opinions. you can report posts or just contact one of us directly. the point of the forum isn't to be spiced up..the whole concept sounds incredibly lame to me but you might think otherwise. it's a good thing we're separate people and can have our own individual opinions. a lot of the current board changes have been requested by users like the side projects forum and spoiler forums for the new albums. without the multitude of subforums we have (which were set into place to aid navigation and ease of members) this place would be chaos.
if you are upset about the closed threads then we can make it so none of you can see them...but we most often leave closed threats there because it keeps people from making the same threat 3 or 5 times because they think the server ate it or it just suddenly disappeared like MAGIC. so you don't want closed threats but you insist on making the same threat over and over? someone will have to compromise because you can't have it both ways.
ps - site suggestions isn't just for moderators/admin. it's suggestions you think will make the site better. so...logically this threat belongs in site suggestions because it is.....suggestions for the site.
the thing you aren't getting, is that by having things be what the majority want would please far more thana few suggest and the mods deem reasonable. "the reality is that it is impossible to make every single one of you happy...so get over it" i think that's a flawed argument. how would voting not cater to the tastes of more people than what a select few decide ? i don't see much reason in that
also, i haven't really complained about any close threads and i even said earlier on i approve of what every mod is doing
i just think a better job could be done
oh, and of course modding isn't easy
if by some miracle this election thing goes through i wouldn't run
also, again, maybe for you a static team is the best thing, but a dynamic revolving team would in my mind keep things fresher. instead of having the same old stale mods you'd have newer people who's love for the coma is fresher and they're excited about modding and helping the place out. take note, all current mods would stay in place
also, again 129eu0sad. "a lot of the current board changes have been requested by users like the side projects forum and spoiler forums for the new albums. without the multitude of subforums we have (which were set into place to aid navigation and ease of members) this place would be chaos" i understand why you bolded that but you're point is moot. i'm suggesting democracy. see first argument
