With all of the recent Moderator bashing going on, I would like to offer a suggestion or three.

1. Make everyone a Moderator. We would all be responsible for Moderating ourselves, not anyone else.

2. Elevate the status of the current Moderators to a new level called 'Ubermoderators' and give them the power to lock threads and topics and even to expel any of the 'normal' Moderators. The Ubermoderators will have these responsibilities and will answer only to Staff and Senior Staff for their reasons for any disciplinary actions.

3. All 'normal' Moderator's accounts can be locked, frozen and/or expelled for life. If a Moderator is expelled for life, they will need to wait 3 to 6 weeks. After a 3 to 6 week cooling off period has elapsed, they will be returned to their previous status and will be wecomed back to Ar15.com as heros and long lost brothers.

4. There will be many opportunities for different Moderators to gather and enjoy the company of new friends and fellow enthusiasts. Each Moderator will have a requirement to attend at least 2 of these events each year. The BRC will count as fufilling this requirement.

5. Moderators will never know all of the rules and will always be afoul of at least some of the rules. The Ubermoderators will know all of the rules because they are clearly listed.....somewhere like the Forum Conduct Code.


Please list any other policy changes that you think may work.

Maybe we can all sit around a campfire together, burn some incense, and sing Kumbyah too.

We already [b]ARE[/b] our own moderators. That's what the "Edit Post" and "Delete Post" icons are for.

Otherwise, I think things are pretty good as they are.

That was EXACTLY what I was saying. Admittedly it was tongue-in-cheek, just not very funny. My fault.

BLIT, aren't we old enough to Moderate ourselves?
Some of our members may be twice or three times the age requirement to take care of themselves.

 How about all you guys can be mods, supermods, and super-dupermods?  Just let me be just a member.  All of you guys can moderate me.

Yea, I don't want any responsibility either.  You guys have at it.  I have enough crap in my life without taking on someone elses.

Of course if I am voted in as 'super-dupermod' then I will just boot everyone for life and let everyone start over. [evil grin]

Can someone be VOTED in as a SuperDuperUberModerator? Isn't that a office handed down by God kind of like a King or Queen?

If we can vote, I would like to nominate.....ME and vote for.....ME! And since this is my thread, my vote counts for exactly one vote more than I need to win the election!

I will endeavor to rule in a very subtle manner. In fact, if I perform my royal duties in the manner I expect, none of you will ever know that I am the Grand High Exalted Chief Poobah!!

Let my reign commence!

Too many people here taking themselves WAY too seriously.

Well, far be it from me to have an opinion, but anybody named Winston Wolf would [i]naturally[/i] be the only Ubermoderator who could clean up some of the messes we get around here.
