About the mods and their activities...

Post by Felina » Mon 17th Sep 2012

Look, mods, I know that many of you, i.e. all of you are now +17 years old and that you're busy and that you can't watch the SB or the site whole the time. I understand that.

BUT, what about the spammers that come here when mods aren't on? When spam keels the SB? Like this, for example:

This is happening on 17th of September, 2012, at 5:30pm CET when mods aren't online to stop stuff like this.

So, what I suggest is: To make people that are really often online able to ban the people that are spamming even when mods aren't on. These half-mods will be able to do only that one little thing: stop the spam in the shoutbox that none of us wants. People didn't came here to see the spams filling the shoutbox, or to see the site crashing because of the spam, like it happened to me a few times. Please, either at least try to have one mod here whole the time or listen to my idea and give a few good users that ability to stop the spam. We can either give that ability to the site team, or simply make another team for half-mods. I don't care. I just want to stop things like this.

Please think about this! This has been happening a lot lately and no one is around to stop it. we understand that y'all cant be on here all the time but we would appresiate it if you would think about kitty's solution.

Indeed, this is a good idea, but is easily flawed, I believe. But, if the mods agree, I believe this is a good idea. :)

To let you guys know you're not being ignored - I've set up a topic in the mod board about this; we'll work out something as soon as we possibly can. I'm really sorry this has been going on, I had no idea until you posted this topic >< We'll figure out a way to deal with it though, hopefully before anything else like that happens!

Honestly, my preference would have been to make the shoutbox only accessible to people who are members. It's more disposable than full-on posts that are online permanently, and thus more approachable to newbies.

But whatever floats FG's boat. XD

We have considered other shoutboxes in the past, but it seems like every time we find one that might work, when we get to discussing it, the cons outweigh the pros :? If you have one that you know works well, though, if you want to recommend it that might work x)
