This came up in the thread for Star Wars RPG. I think there is a need for some more moderators in the RPG forum. In one instance, there was alot of spam involved, as well as un-needed posts in that thread, and it would have been good to have a mod on hand to sort things out at the time. Don't get me wrong, Yoss is a great moderator, but I feel that the forum needs a moderator that is usually busy in that forum a lot of the time.
That's why I am creating this thread to get the higher-ups opinions on these matters, as well as the normal members, especially those who frequent the RPG area of LO, as they will be most affected. I am personally thinking that the best option for this position is dr_nick22 as he is always there, and always running RPG's or helping out with them.
So what do you all think of this, and is there anyone else do you think might fit the bill?
I nomanate Dr Nick. He seems always so helpful, and is on quite often.
(and congrants on your monkey Silver)
Thank you guys, I am honoured I would be glad to mod the RPG forum if you would have me.
Also, I would like to nominate SilverMane as well, if another mod again is needed. I feel he has made a positive contribution to the RPG forum recently, and I forsee him continuing that in the future. He has been helping out, and assisting with the organisation of the Star Wars thread, which has been much appreciated.
Dr Nick is indeed a good choice if another moderator is needed. That said Yoss seems to be doing a fine job, the incident of spamming that occured is probably the only 'bad behaviour' I have seen on the RPG forum. I think it can probably be attributed to tension/excitment building for when the Action thread is going to be posted not to mention having four or five people online at the same time.
So in conclusion dr Nick would be a good moderator but I am not sure another one is needed.

You ask for another mod but I don't see any of you reporting posts. In fact it was Darkreever who reported the Star Wars spam earlier today.
Yoss was on it within a few hours and dealt with the situation by handing out two warnings. So it's not like he doesn't respond if called upon. As long as the more active role players keep an eye out for any dubious activity and report rule infringements, I think Yoss is fine by himself (not to mention the numerous global mods we have)
Just my thoughts on the matter
Also, if I remember correctly, you need to be around 18 or so to be a mod anyway, so that discounts both silvermane and Dr. Nick.

I personally think that Dr Nick has the maturity and skill to be a mod.
But as Stone said, we have a good amount of mods at the moment. Just report stuff to them, and they'll clean up.
So it's irrelevant

I'm not totally convinced you guys need a moderator. No offense meant toward any of the "nominees," but that's not how moderators are selected.
Not to mention, as Stone correctly said, nobody seems to be reporting posts... darkreever has reported the only post in the RPG forum that I've been able to see.
I think we have a suitable amount of moderators for most of the areas of the forum. If it's a little slower in some areas, well, that's to be expected - we're a Warhammer forum, after all, not an RPG or video game forum, etc.
Lord Yoss was on the matter and dealt with it appropriately as soon as it came to his attention. I'd recommend that the thread organisers (and other members) in that particular area of the forum start telling people to lay off the spam - in fact, I didn't see (on just a cursory glance in that thread) hardly anyone tell those people to stop spamming. I just saw the reported post, which was correctly done, but did anyone think to ask the members in question to just.. stop?
It's easiest to just PM a moderator with powers in that section, or report the post, if the spam continues. I'd recommend asking the members in question first, though.
I can't see the need for a moderator dedicated to that section only.
LN helpful as always.
Now that i think of it that was a rather random day, 70 posts in a few hours.
So i am tending to switch my views after seeing all your opinions. Just one thing,
is it possible to get maybe one or two moderators to get the RPG forum as a area?
Just having one might overload him if we keep getting random days, it is just safer
to have more incase.:rolleyes:
Great to hear all your opinions!
