    Each section of the forum had its own moderator? Like Negi could be the mod of Weeaboo shit, I could be the mod of furfaggotry, ect. Do you guys think it would be neat? I think its a pretty cool idea.

    Why do we need more moderators though?
    Just sounds like an opportunity to show off your e-peen in a sub-forum you post a lot in if you ask me.

    Well I could imagine being a moderator of a forum of this size being stressful, and having a moderator for each section of the forum would make everything much easier or something like that.

    No, I really just want to be the furfaggotry mod, and I think that the idea of each section having a moderator is a good one, but their moderator powers only worked in those sections, so they cant abuse them elsewhere.

    I love how everyone's awesome ideas always include them getting mods/sysops/admins of some sort. Those boards don't even get one new thread a day, I think we can handle it.

    This really isn't all that big of a forum. There have only been a few events that required any moderation (such as sig legnth). Plus this place pretty much runs itself. No one is going to start posting CP or anything. Anyone who starts being a stupid poster is going to have the full force of the entire forum come down on them. honestly the best mods are just eh regular members.

    Also, you want the least number of mods as possible. One of the biggest problems on EDF v1 was the massive number of mods. Albeit there were more rules that were enforced for no reason (such as no porn unless in spoiler tags (LIKE SERIOUSLY, IT'S THE FUCKING ENCYCLOPEDIA DRAMATICA FORUMS. OFFENSIVE SHIT IS GOING TO BE POSTED)). But with so many mods it was so easy to get banned for saying something that they disagreed with. Plus they ended up making their own little circles and you couldn't say shit.

    Yeah fuck that shit it was so gay. I actually got booted off the sysop roster because I disagreed with "dan's awesome new plan" of bringing in more mods instead of just using the regular sysops who were already mods, which was working just fine. So yeah I spoke up and said they were all fucking stupid and were going to ruin EDF, and they convinced dan to demod me from the forum and had tfo desysop me from the wiki, and 3 years later here we are, they ruined EDF just like I said and I am the only one who is still around.

    My favorite mod circlejerk was Truth x Knots. Honestly I liked Truth, but Knots was overbearing. If they both were in a thread together they would shit over everything you would say.

    This might sound a bit ignorant but what are the duties of a mod on the forum. Most places it seems to be suspensions and bans for "quality" control. I know there are the medals and the fact that some people somehow managed to get banned here even if it was temporary.

    We just look out for illegal or really annoying stuff. And we get to move/merge threads too.

    That's a great idea, they should consider implementing this
