    This forum is in dire need of a good moderator, no question.
    I have seen a few people, though, on the forum with mod status, and rather than jump to conclusions and call you the worst mods that ever modded, i thought i'd ask.
    Exactly what powers do you (the moderators) have on this forum?

    I'm pretty sure thats it. However it's up to the administrator (i0n) to choose what powers mods have and do not have.

    What about addmin
    Ion is addmin (he owns the forum)
    I think he is the only one that can ban

    Well i do know that much, thanks.
    But I'm asking these specific mods exactly what powers they have, because obviously that could be the reasoning behind why this forum is moderated so bad.

    If you have a problem with the way people are moderating the forum just take it up with Ion.

    only super mods are able to moderate every section of the forum. normal mods are restricted to only a few forums. we can lock, delete, move, edit, sticky, and ban. we do need some more mods for other sections though. we got 4 mods on Wii General chat, 1 on hardware, 1 on online chat, and 1 on the lounge plus 3 super mods

    Thank you.
    Would anyone by chance be able to give me a list of mods, and what section they moderate?

    Scroll down to about the bottom of the front page and click on forum leaders. There it will list the moderators and super moderators.

    Here you go..

    I would like to apply for a Mod position on the Chat, Hardware and Online forums. I have contacted ION both through PM and email.

    Nothing as of yet.

    Thanks

    I am the Admin over at www.legacyofelune.com but no longer play WoW.

    This isn't a thread for applying for Mod position.
    I would suggest continuing to try and contact i0n, or try some of the super mods, and they can tell i0n.
    I do know though, that i0n is very hard to contact..he's never online.

    I figured he would be watching this as I have also contacted some of the mods already.

    Thanks

    What?!!? This board has mods?

    Boards of this size really need dedicated mods that are on at different time blocks. Other boards I frequent have hourly shifts each mod is assigned.

    I guess one of the main concerns is what one considers a post that needs to be edited/locked/deleted. One problem is the vast array of age groups that visit this forum. Older gamers may see some of the younger participant's posts as incoherent or ignorant. Younger gamers may see some of the older participant's posts as rude.

    Other than the official Nintendo forum, WiiChat has the most background noise of any of the gaming boards I visit. I've found myself spending more and more time at Cheap Ass Gamer, or the Nintendo World Report.

    This board is actually fairly small, compared to others.
    But even though we have enough mods, they are not dedicated at all whatsoever(Most, not all).
    I have never seen more than one or two mods even online at the same time, and during a one day period, the majority of time goes by without any mods being online.
    I do dissagree with you though, about the age thing.
    You are right for the most part, but i've found that some of the older posters are the ones that tend to break rules and such, just because they are not very familiar with forum ettiquette.
    For example, compared to most on the board I would be considered fairly young (16), but as of yet I havn't seen a single person (especially mods) who cares more about the rules, and making sure the noobs learn how to behave.
    This is simply because I am a moderator on other forums, and have been for a while.
    I hate trying to tell people what there doing is wrong, yet having no power to back myself up.
    Thats why i really wish i was a mod here, so i could help turn it around.
    FFS this place doesn't even have a Stickied "Forum Rules - Read before posting" post.

    Fair enough, but I don't consider 16 as fairly young; and I also suppose age does not relate to maturity. I am not stating the older individuals are not contributing to background noise. In actuality I can only guess a user's age, but it seems to me a lot of younger users take issues when a cold, hard fact is presented to them about a topic. Often their responses complain of "you don't need to be so rude!". I find individuals who haven't reached a certain maturity level have problems when they are corrected, sometimes lashing out instead of accepting they are ignorant in that topic. And, yes, the same could be said of older users who are stuck in thinking they are always right, but the previous example seems to be more noticeable to me.

    The largest contributor of background noise are the post count whores. I mean, do we really need "lets count to 1000", or "one word story" posts? How about all the "yah, whatever" posts. I'd like to see post-counts completely removed.

    Well, you are right in the fact that younger people do tend to take corrections offensive and rude, and in general be less mature.
    I'd just like to think that our maturity levels aren't judged soley on our age, because that ruins it for us trying to actually be mature, and make this forum better.
