Default the j.o.b. of a m.o.d.

Moderator: One that arbitrates or mediates.

But does that really difine what a mod is. I find myself asking, who really runs VT fequently throughout the day. I read and re read constant bickering between members. And I see noob after noom shattering the rules of our online community. A moderators real job is to keep the site running smoothly, and lax the labor of the administration. But when the administration refuses to allow the mod's to productivly do their job, what is the point of a mod? Does their job really affect the way VT runs? The answer is simple, and please allow me to dish it out.

All good things come to an end, all civilization's crumble all food is consumed. But why? Why must all things come to an end? It is becasuse of the how good things are run. Every few days I hear the all to frequent " I miss the old VT " And it pains me because I never knew It. But what I do know is that, when an administration fails to trust its staff, there will be only havoc. I know that mod rights have been abused before, but allowing confusion, and disorder is not the way to solve our problems. I think that, to keep the "good" of our site, to keep it a place were people enjoy the company of our members, it would only be in the sites best intrest to allow the mods to have thier responsibilites returned to them.

The the answer to the question "does their job really affect the way VT runs" is no. Not unless they are allowed to DO their jobs. So my suggestion is......Would the administration allow the mods to delete posts in the forms they mod?

They should, and globals should be allowed to ban.
Heather is on a hella lot more than Josh and Triple7. She sees what goes on here. Give her the power to ban and this place will get nice and spiffy.

I agree, mods should be able to delete posts from their forums, Also I think G-mods should be able to freeze but not ban. Nick is right about heather, she is definately trustworthy and should be given that option so she can use it if she sees fit (and doug when he rarely comes on)

Josh if ne thing... u know how mods have that X out thing by the post.... it doesnt work no more... can u at least make that a move to the recycle bin? it would be a lot ezier.... but i think in general... we should be able to delete things... because some things might need imediate deletion for the viewing purposes... like naked images or something... and if its still in the trash... people can see it.... untill u delete it

My opinon:

Global mods: should be able to delete posts in all forums.

Mods: Can delete posts too.

I say this because. You have to move it to the recycle bin. So you can kinda already delete things. Sarah could have just moved all my stuff and I wouldnt have gotten it back because i can move things in that forum. so it wouldnt have mattered!!!!! So save the hassle and let the mods delete post.

Oh, and josh is suppose to be clueless. He just makes sure there isnt any porn, violence, etc. He shouldnt know anyone's personal life. that is for kiros. josh is doing a fine job. He has a life. unlike the majority of us.

You would have gotten them back. The posts would have stayed in the forum, and a global mod or admin could have mass moved them back, and your request that I received through PM was carried out.

yes but the absense isnt helping anything. if a mod wished to reak havok, they could edit and delete everything.
