I still cant see how having a moderator is going to change anything.Stopping Cheating?
We have 6 years of history to prove that a moderator here couldn't stop cheating, at best the blatant ones are replaced with more discreet ones.
So if you think a moderator can stop cheating you are dumb.Moderating the forums?
Moderating the 2 or 3 new threads a week?
The same threads that all of the current strike team staff already frequent?
How is that going to help?
Is a new TS moderator going to rewrite strike teams forum rules? Yeah i can totally see Olaf letting that happen.
So if you think having a moderator will change anything, you are dumb.Resolving cheat reports?
Did people miss the past 2-3 years bil has been resolving reports?
Putting "proven" on them, and then just watching them sit there, without strike team admins actually actioning the bans?
Whats going to be any different now? Olaf cant even be bothered to update the HOF, (which would take 5 minutes), what on earth makes you think hes going to be logging in and actioning bans?
If he was interested in doing it, he would have been doing it over the past 3-4 years right? Ok then, more factual evidence that nothing will change.
And no, it took bil 4 solid years before he was granted deeper access, by which point he was so fedup, he left the site.Boosting activity?
We very recently had a whole team of dedicated people, approaching other community sites, trying to poach members, advertising, affiliating with other cnc sites, and they couldnt get a single person on their site.
Thats a whole team of people trying to get new players, and they couldnt even get 1.
But a TS moderator on this site is going to do it?
All i see is people talking about what they would do if they were a moderator, with a complete lack of understanding of what it would actually take to achieve those tasks.
To be clear, im not objecting to the idea of having a moderator, its just brutally obvious that it wont make a blind bit of difference to the online experience.
And im so confused why others cant see this.
And the applications are golden, we have a guy that has only made 14 posts here in over a year, and already admits he plays the game on and off and has dependants, hows that going to work then?
And we also have someone wanting to take community votes on cheat reports, are you kidding me?
Cheat reports need to be based on HARD EVIDENCE and nothing else.
To finish, im not opposed to there being a moderator, but its painfully obvious it will change nothing.
BUT if it takes you giving someone the job to prove that, by all means go ahead.
I dont know how many times i need to correctly predict these things using hard logic and facts, before people finally understand that im a realist and not a hater.
It was only 6 months ago everyone wanted to give Ray the moderator job here, I was the one guy saying he wasnt suitable, and look what happened, the moment SC2 came out, Ray was totally gone from the community.
So go ahead, give the job to a dude whos only made 14 posts in 14 months, lets see how that works out.
Give the job to a guy who wants to let the community vote on cheat reports, lets see how that works out.
I personally think it will be hilarious for entertainment value, and as i no longer play this game, and have not played for a very long time, i really think that giving someone the job will be the best way to prove everything that ive said to be correct.
