Just curious, how do you become a mod on this site?

The only pre-requisite is to have been terminated from being a traffic warden for being too much of a jobsworth. :whistling:

Joke or no joke Mods are an easy target aren't they :-(

Are they? Why?
Surely if anything detrimental is said about a Mod, then they will remove that post and ban the poster.

Only if it was off topic in a serious thread or was trying to cause an unnecessary argument with the mod team. IMO, this mod team is one of the most lenient that I have ever seen on such a large website and the most personal to deal with too.

To be honest Steve I haven't seen that. which is why I posted really. The OP asked a perfectly reasonable question on this thread and was rewarded with a reply which at best was of no help whatsoever and at worse was a cheap dig.

Now I'm up for a joke as much as the next person and love to see and partake in the many humorous threads , posts etc on the site. It's great fun, makes my day sometimes and long may it carry on.
Indeed I thought the Ryouga thread the other day was a classic and the OP appeared to be taking it in good humour etc. (Where did that thread go ?)

The difference being though that the recipient there of the humour/jibes/whatever was able to reply and did not appear to be offended.
From where I stand the Mods here appear to take most things in good humour. They are polite, actively involved and helpful and considering the circumstances seem to get it right in the majority of cases.

I know you have your issues and I both understand and respect that but I do sometimes get fed up with others jumping on the bandwagon with cheap sarcasm knowing that they will almost certainly get away with it without having to worry about a reply.

Perhaps I am over sensitive to this kind of issue as I spent many , many years seeing and dealing with the effects of this kind of thing. I liken it to the Checkout Operator sat on the front line taking abuse from the odd grumpy customer and having to smile sweetly whilst only carrying out the wishes of the Manager sat in his office giving out orders !

Paul appears to make the rules here and obviously passes this down to the Mods. Are they not just trying to carry out those rules ? I honestly don't see any "maverick" mods on here and they are never , ever going to get it 100% right are they ?

The following to me is just a bit below the belt especially in the context and place it was written.

Anyway I'm getting bogged down when I shouldn't be. I'd sincerely love to be able to debate this with you over a pint of something but that's not possible
There's so much I'd like to include in this post but it would end up a novel and I'm probably already boring the pants off of most :giggle:

My parting shot would be, why oh why can't people just learn to respect each other in both what they say and do. It is really just as easy to be polite as not and respect always works both ways.
Treat others as you would wish to be treated springs to mind and we all would probably do well to remember that sometimes.
Someone will probably find a post by me where I have been just as guilty and I accept that, most of us appear to fall into this trap at some time or other !

Excuse the typos, length of post etc etc. :oops:

Tony

Not sure why you are so upset. :?

duckmagicuk2 took it in the spirit it was intended. If he/she didn't, the option is there for him/her, or any of the mods to remove, and/or reply.

Did he/she ? And does that make it right anyway ? And lastly exactly what spirit was your post intended ? You chose the smiley at the end of your post :whistling: not a ?

I've written my piece, I don't want to drag anything out and to be honest I was replying to Steve.
I don't have an issue with you personally although I must say having read your posts and what you have had to say in the past I am surprised both at you posting what you did and now defending it :thinking:

Then if replying to steve, use his e-mail.

That's not really an intelligent answer is it ?

Do I? :?
My only 'issues' are the lack of help on the FS Forum when someone has been scammed and the deleting of my posts that don't 'conform' with the majority or with Admins way of thinking.:roll:

Especially the FS Forum as you well know.

I've got enough with Paul thinking I have problems with HUKD and the Mods. I don't have any problems with HUKD or the Mods.
