Alright then, there was a post that I saw here ( /Seriously/funny-pictures/4849236/
) and there is something that I want to get off my chest about these mediocre mods.
I have been a mod to a hentai site for about three years now and still am to this day, of course the site that I too do moderation for has it's own SFW and **** section similar to FJ's and must be in their rightful place. But like FJ's dilemma with Cyanide and Happiness threatening to take legal actions, we too have artists that threaten us with legal actions and since we deal mostly with hentai and other adult graphic novels, it can be much more severe. Now it's my duty to make sure that none of our users post any of the banned material that are up on that list. If any of the banned material is posted by a user, of course I take necessary actions by warning the user and have myself to delete their album. If repeated twice or more, it can result to a temporary ban or a permanent ban. That much I can understand when seeing all these mods on FJ.
Now of course FJ has its' own set of banned material in regards to post and comments. Your job is to look for these banned material that the Admin chose and track them down and take necessary actions. There's nothing wrong about having a little fun while you are chatting with your fellow mods, the Admin and even the users, believe me I do it all the time, but never abuse your ban power just ***** and giggles, that's exactly what drives users away from the site and pisses them off. The majority of the mods ban people for some of the idiotic reasons and I can tell there is a large amount of favoritism among these mods. Yes I know that Admin is the main person that distributes perma bans, but he's letting all these temp bans being thrown out freely by the mods. I don't know how the moderating system works here on FJ but this **** needs to change, if not, the site is going to lose a lot more users than it already is.
Being a mod is an earned right given by the Admin because you have contributed to the site. Yes you will be separated from the common user and yes you will be hated, but be hated for all the right reasons, not for stupid **** because it's funny or because you have that power. You are a mod because you love the community and love the site regardless of how ***** they both are, and that's what it means to be a mod.
Do what you will to me, I already said what I needed to say.
