the problem is there are too many trolls with alias's and hidden agendas to leave it up to the masses... if that were so guys like J$ would have 20 votes in the matter...lol
you know how i became a mod? i signed on one day, my screen looked different and there was a pm from jeff saying congrats...lol
he never asked me or gave any indication at all
then there was a thread in the lakers froum saying the same...
the lakers forum is so easy to mod, just keep redundant posts down to a minimum, keep the trolls out (don't get much because they never get a voice in our forum here so they stick to the NBA forum mostly) and delete spam (we gets lots you don't see, wanna buy a pair of authentic made in china "air jordans" for 10 bucks? lol)
anyways this forum is basically on auto pilot but if i were to place a vote for another mod it would be for alex, sour grapes all net or bleedin, all good heady posters who have great attitudes
the real place that needs work is the main forum, if you want to make noise about needing mods make it there
Not going to try and read into your message and confuse your thoughts but, what I do agree with your post is highlighted "Vote" you have your good choices and I'm sure other members does also...My choices would be DKLaker, bleedin, sour grapes,Zen, MJ (Mean John) just to name a few..But, looks like SocalMike will return soon hope everything is ok with me...
"why do I even care about the main forum needing a Mod" My concern is in house
As much as would love to be a mod and know I would do a good job the Lakers forum has some great mods and more mods I don't think is the main focus on ISH to be honest. As mentioned the NBA forum is where the problems lie.
GTS and Lakerfreak are the main mods here and do a great job. There is always one of them about to keep order.
