Default ISH: it's time to add mods.

Insidehoops I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter.





With all the recent abundance of trolls, including the posting of porn and excessive swearing, this could hurt advertising income.

If the quality of the board goes down, you lose money. Isn't that how advertising works? All the bull**** that's being posted recently is driving potential members away. And there is no moderation, nobody ever gets banned, and these troll topics stick for days at a time.

There are people that live on this board... and the mod is clearly not one of them. This board started off great, I don't want to see it get turned back into the bull**** the ezboard was.

how much do you get paid for being a mod? With Jeff's riches, he should pay mods at least double the minimum wage.

lol. you don't get paid.

I mean seriously, look at the top half of the first page. There isn't a good topic there. This board deserves better than the topics we got now, which range from inane to obscene. It's pathetic. You really thing some potential members gonna come here, look at the top 20 topics, and decide to come back? Please.

Geewiz would be a great mod.

PS: What's the point of reporting posts if the mod doesn't even ****ing visit this site?

New members wouldn't want to come on this board if it's trash. We got topics saying mexicans stank and the mod sucks.

of course I'd volunteer. I think plenty of regulars would volunteer. To maintain the board that has become their hobby. Administration is having nothing to do with our offers.

Tell your black friends to ignore the KKK hate rallies in their frontyards, right?

Or, maybe we could work to maintain our forum, instead of quietly letting trolls ruin it, pretending we don't care?

And also, I made a topic talking about how there are about 1000 members of this forum that have 2 or less posts. Clearly not all these are potential posters but some are. Maybe regulars can ignore the troll topics that are always being bumped up, but these guys see such idiocy after Jeff works so hard to get them here with advertising, and they say "no thanks, this place sucks." ISH is now losing hits, it's losing people, and it's losing potentially great posters because they're turned off by the trolls and the stupid topics.

Sorry but the quiet reminders by mods to be "smart" that are stickied aren't enough.

trolls are out for attention, if you reply to a thread they accomplish their goal. If you ignore, they'll leave, simple as that.
But somebody always replies. Always. Even if it's not me, somebody will.

I wouldn't mind Kwajo as mod. He's a cool guy. He gets along with everyone and can take a joke.

Yes, please, add more mods. If it keeps this board from being a 14 year old brat free-for-all, go for it.

Kwajo for mod I would definitely support. He'd probably be the best guy for the job, actually.

Gobb was the first guy I thought of, but I don't want Gobb to be a mod because, while I don't think he would take his personal beefs out on people by deleting their threads because he's not a *****, I do think that mods need to be professional and I don't want Gobb to be limited in what he can say by his position.

So I think mods need to be respected posters who get along with everyone. And Kwajo comes to mind first.

adamcz would be a really good mod, also.
