You know, considering you just insulted a mod you don't even know and who hasn't even done anything to you, you should probably quit spamming and trying to be antagonistic.

Marauder 11/09/2009 03:12 AM

It wasn't an insult. You're all reading between the lines when there aren't any words to read there.

And it appears that I'm succeeding at being antagonistic, there's no cause to say I'm 'trying' anymore.

Makoeyes987 11/09/2009 03:13 AM

It's pretty damn insulting to insinuate he preformed fellatio for his moderating position. Regardless of if you meant it literally or not, the unwarranted connotation that he isn't qualified next to such an insulting and vulgar statement, is pretty well...insulting. :monster:

That's because TNC has the most random fucking Mods that make no sense at all. . . That, and no-one cares about TNC, lol.

You're a good Mod though there, Quexi. You're like the only one who DOES anything there. I've said this before.

Mako, my point was NEVER that high post counts = istant Mod. My point is that the members don't know Tres well, and that Members who have been here longer who are just as good, weren't chosen. I was wondering why, that's ALL. I never meant that someone with over 9,000 posts should be Admin. Because then you'd have to Mod Ali and she never posts anything anymore. The point is that 127 posts suggests that he hasn't been here that long- and he hasn't. You guys know him and that's cool (I've only heard stories and he seems pretty nice from the posts I've seen), but the members don't seem to. That's why it seems random to a lot of us. I never said it was a contest either, maybe I shouldn't have said "WIN" but I didn't know how else to say it. x'D Just think, you've been a member here a long time, you've been told countless times that you're posts are amazing, that you should be modded, and then a new person who you've seen post a handful of times in one section after joining gets the position? Would that make sense if to you? That's what I've been trying to say.

And I've never once said he was a bad choice or that he'd do bad. In fact I keep saying that he's a great guy. The biggest thing I think, is that Staff here seems to have ignored the members of the Forum on this one. What makes Ten/Aaron/Alex/Meggy/anyone else anyone has mentioned not qualified for the spot? You haven't really answered that at all. >.<

Wow, what a roundabout way to say that it was an insult. Which is basically just a repeat performance of everything else you've said in this thread. Do I detect a pattern?

Yeah, yeah. I'm sure Tres will be great. What I'm not sure of is modding such a new member. At this point, it's like modding me. Which quite a few people would be opposed to. (amaga)

Then they can get to know him. And sorry, but modship is not an entitlement, right, or guaranteed appointment. I don't care how nice, high your post count and membership length is. That's not how it works.

It wouldn't make sense if the actual staff never said anything about the appointment, or made a statement as to when and why it happened.

Because they weren't the ones we were looking for in terms of members who's qualifications would fill in the position left behind by Schala. We wanted a member who was comparable to her previous abilities, membership, etc, to fill in that spot. There are no members who are automatically entitled to be mods. I've repeated that now 5 different times and it's as if its not even been read.

Then may I also say it doesn't matter if you're a mod or not, because you'll still have to earn my respect, or is that a bannable offense? :monster:

Why would that be a bannable offense...? That's reality. Most people operate that way (and rightfully so), so why would that be a problem?

But anyway:

I really don't think anyone is saying you have to love the guy right now . They just want you to give him a chance :monster:

I'm sorry, I should have ended that with :hugemonster: so that it was clear I was joking.

Then you can understand when a lot of people say that they don't respect this decision. Of course there is going to be outcry.

If you don't respect the decision that's fine, and more than your right to. But if you're going to attack its validity, it'd be nice if you brought some valid reasons to the table, coupled with an understanding as to why said decision was made.

Marauder 11/09/2009 03:29 AM

I can't understand it if the reasons you've given have been complete bullshit. Sorry, find your ass-kissing elsewhere.

Dashell 11/09/2009 03:33 AM

Pbobos, can I ask who you would make a mod? Or in your opinion, what makes Tres NOT mod worthy? Just cause people don't know him?

More like you don't agree, and can't think of any valid reasons to bitch about it, actually. For one, I couldn't care less if you or anyone kisses my or anyone else's ass here. Number two, the fact we as staff made our choice to make him a mod based on who he was, his experience in other FF communities we've been apart of, his past postings, contributions, helpful actions for our own projects, and positive attitude is more than enough reason in our eyes to see he is qualified to be on staff and fill the vacated spot of another good staffer we had before. It hardly amounts to bullshit, and if you really can't wrap your mind around such a judgment, then I don't know what else to tell you.

If you don't agree, that's fine, and your right. But it'd be nice if you gave a valid and constructive reason for said disagreement other than popularity, entitlement, and antagonism.
