So I've been thinking this may (or may not) be an interesting contest idea. Yep, the winner gets to be a Mod for a day with all associated Mod powers. locking threads, deleting posts, issuing warnings, even banning. The whole nine yards. Of course these actions would only be applicable for the day you're the acting Moderator.

 

I've seen threads where people felt the Mods were treating them unfairly or showing favoritism for one poster over another. This would give us a glimpse into what the Mods deal with on a daily basis. Of course not every complaint would go to the one temporary Moderator. There is a whole Moderation team after all but with their support the winner would have to legitimately respond to some. It would offer an opportunity for us to Mod the way we believe it should be done.

 

Would you delete posts simply because you didn't agree with them? Lock threads made by people you didn't like? Ban people just because you can? Or would you try to put aside past differences and do the job to the best of your abilities?

 

Possibility for abuse? Of course but again any actions would only be for 1 day and the person you exerted your wrath upon may be the next Mod for the day. Maybe they'd seek revenge or maybe they'd be the bigger person. I think it would be interesting to see in action.

 

I wouldn't expect there to be a "Mod for a Day" winner every day. Maybe they could run the contest once a week so 1 day out of every week there would be a guest Moderator. Now how would the winner be chosen? I may have some thoughts on that too but I'd like to hear your suggestions on this and the entire idea as well.

 

Thoughts?


Oh dear lord the trouble this would cause. It's nice to have dreams and aspirations though, this would never happen. Ever. But it's fun to think about, like the lottery.

Your comment didn't sound snarky to me personally. I edited my post to remove your quote and a couple of other things that I didn’t feel were necessary after having posted them (I don't think I added much). I don’t consider comments like "to say the least" to be snarky (but that's just me). =P


Good after re-reading them together it seemed to me like it could've appeared I was repeating your phrase mockingly.

 

I did mention a real Moderator would have to moderate the temporary one's activity so I doubt they'd be able to do much damage in 24 hours but it would also severely limit their (the temps) power which kinda defeats the purpose....

 

It would be a sort of test of faith in the community that they wouldn't resort to pettiness but they would get a taste of the responsibilities of a Moderator.

That's the fun part for me. You're assuming (probably correctly) that it WOULD cause trouble. I prefer to think it MAY cause trouble. Either way it's fun to think about.

Even though this mod for a day thing is never going to happen, I would like to see our moderators get themselves more involved with the community, that way, we can get to know them better.

Managers or Moderators?

 

I want more managers around here.

1. Ain't never gonna happen.  There's no way Sony would allow that.

2. But if somehow I was mod for the day I would take the day off.  It's someone else's turn.
