Seriously though, this "we've got two mods in two different countries, they cover each other" argument is rubbish. Neither Adders or Willy are on that much, and they're often on at the same time. We need a mod who's usually on overnight/early morning UK time, midday-ish US time.

Let's be honest we all know Adders won't give any more modships out. The best thing for the forum would be to have two extra mods, even if it's on a part time basis, just to cover the times when Adders/Wile E aren't online.

I'm a supporter of #RVN4Mod and #JTB4Mod2013 respectively, but I can't really blame admin for not making more mods at the present time. We're not that active, and there isn't much TO moderate, socks aside.

What really needs to happen is to try and bring A) New people and opinions to the place and B) older posters we know back. Then promote JTB and Raven ;)

You have to bear in mind, modding isn't a huge deal if you're not a cunt about it. Willy's mod, makes no difference really. Same for Thun. It was the guys who handed out warnings at the drop of a hat and felt like it was their duty to "clean up" the forum that made it a big deal. Promoting, say, myself and Thun to mod positions, especially if we want to institute a screening process for n00bs, isn't going to change much, because we're not ones to go out enforcing every single little rule and jumping on every little thing we see wrong. All it means is two more guys, who are far more regular than our current two mods, who can czech n00bs, merge topics/double posts, delete sp4mz etc.

Hell, even if we added another one or two mods, and made it explicitly clear that housekeeping was their only job, they weren't to give out warnings and need to seek approval before unleashing the banhammer, if at all, that could work. I don't care if I've got the power to ban people or hand out warnings or any shit, it just annoys me when I see sp4mz come up or double posts/double topics come up and I have to sit here with it taunting me until Adders or Willy eventually show up.

The very same. See, i said that Raven wouldn´t be a bad mod. I really think he has the ability to seperate troll duty from mod duty.....

Nail on the head hit. Even if only half a dozen posters all found a mere one new poster each that would become a regular here that would result in much more activity here.

It's not even that hard. When ya on a site like You Tube, Facebook etc and see a decent opinion about wrestling from someone you just private message them about it and tell them about how awesome we are and to check us out.

It's a shame Oz isn't around, Pav had an hissy fit, Double M was lying about returning around WM time and Crackintish disappeared quickly after showing potential.
