Guys don't infect this topic by volunteering for mod when you know you're not in the running. That would make us seem power hungry and not to be taken seriously. I legitimately want mods here, I'm not trying to make this some self-promoting topic, I don't care who it is, I just want this board to be maintained.

Agreed.

One thing about mod'ing is that a big chunk of our regulars here are trash-talking kids that genuinely love basketball but also get into constant stupid arguments with each other. I have created topics about the board and like 20 regulars will post in it, and next thing I know 10 of them are throwing personal insults back and forth at each other. It's hard to manage.

Of course, a big chunk of regulars are also normal intelligent fans.

But because of the disparity, we've tended to try to just let most stuff go, aside from the blatantly excessive stuff

I mean, 99% of the messages are normal good basketball messages.

Thats true, but spammers need to be deleted straight away. they take away from the quality of the board. You already know my feelings on moding Jeff.

I love the board and I think that it's almost fine, but I do agree that adding a few mods would make it perfect

The spam that happened today is a rare exception

And hell, I'm not against trash-talking, as long as it's intelligent, educated trash-talking, and not "yo momma sucks and you're ugly" kind of stuff

Of course, in real basketball games people do say some stuff like that, so maybe true basketball discussion should be mostly intelligent but with some nasty stuff thrown in, haha

The List:

Thorpesaurus

Ced

Any of these 6 would be fine.

I agree with that list. Like Ced said none of the reasonable posters have a problem with any of them, and they wouldn't let beefs get in the way of things. Cosigned

I don't find this too bad, if I was moding, I'd delete the excessive ones, but otherwise it's all pretty good humour really.

That Steven A. Smith character was particularly bad today. I've got so much free time right now, I work small hours because of my knee and can go online at work too. I would be reasonable and fair.

If I were you, I would probably be thinking, "these kids don't deserve a board like this, why should I waste my money and time so they can mess up what I created???" But, you got more patience that that, alot of these people are messing with your money man, I'd be mad if this was actually my board that I paid for. You got patience and hope in most of these posters, I respect that.

99.9% of the people here, whether kids or college-aged or older, do deserve the board. This board is awesome. I love that the board exists. InsideHoops forums will exist forever

It's just that out of the 500-800 people that actually post on a daily basis there are just, maybe, 3-7 people per day that are out of line about some stuff. Pretty good percentage

I think on the whole people generate good discussion and debate. I don't think the people here waste Jeff's money. This board is a great place, but some people try to wreck it. I'm not talking about any of the regulars, more so the randoms that come in and do silly things.
