The Euro Mods are watching you new  

I mentioned earlier today that I disdain the performance of our two European moderators (EJSunday and Sysiyo).

I want to be clear in this thread that I was not just joking around. They may be fantastic human beings, kind to animals, etc., but they suck as moderators. Let me explain.

First, I think it is wrong for a moderator to explicity state they do not like this or that poster. Both EJ and Sysiyo are guilty of this. Adam is a man of raging emotions, but he has the awareness that his position here precludes him from the mudslinging that you and I enjoy, and he possesses the self control to check himself.

I need not even comment on ohramona, who makes the lowliest pond scum of posters feel welcome and loved.

But we live in fear that we will run awry of one of the two Euros, that they will find us lacking and start badgering us and drumming up ill will in the lead-up to a possible banning. That is disasterous moderating, and it won't do a thing to make TW a nest for potential thomaswoods and pianocrafts.

Second, the plodding, mind-numbing, self-conscious commentary regarding threads in the wrong forum must stop. Nobody cares if the odd thread is not right on forum. Now I understand this passes for humor with those two, and lord knows they'll yuk it up ad nauseum over it, but the reality is, they are serious too. There must be something in the water over there that makes a good number of Euros very tight-assed, and that's unfortunate. I think tight-assedness is possibly a contributing factor towards the negative population growth on the old continent. But I'm not a scientist so I'll leave that to Emil and CLAUDE to sort out.

Third, I blame Sysiyo for the three month expiry in Artistes forum. I think he was for it just so he could decide which threads to keep and which to let die, the power hungry yetti.

In conclusion, Sysiyo and EJ must go. Adam got it right with ohro, but he's 1 for 4 overall (Tati is never here, which means she can't be moderating well). I don't know who should be their replacements, but it might be a good idea to look a bit more in Bowie's adopted home, or maybe Canada.

Re: The Euro Mods are watching you new [re: power2charm]  

Well I think we all agree that I would make a fantastic moderator. Unfortunately, I had to turn down the offer. I don't think Adam will mind my sharing of his PM that he sent to me. Here it is:

Dearest Monkeyboy,

As you know, I am a great admirer of your contribution to the boards and, yes, to life as we know it. While what I have to say in this correspondence would be an offer to many of the lesser posters in this craphole, I somehow feel that I am asking you for a favor more than anything. As you know, this place is rampant with stupid fuckers that can't manage to get their head out of thier own crotches long enough to post anything interesting. That's fine. They are cretins and can't help it. But I am tired of doing all the work in rangling in all the idiots and need someone to help. From reading every single post and hand-writing them all for my records to responding to endless PMs by tony about how my addiction to beef jerky is inexcusable and how he threatens me with death. Oh Jesus, it's just too much to handle. I really wish that Evan would have left this place in your control because I think you would do a fantastic job. Really stellar, you know. Like, just, oh god, fucking awesome! But I am obligated to continue working as whatever the little "A" stands for so cannot hand that title to you. But I think that if you were to be a moderator this website would be the coolest thing ever in the whole wide world. I mean, like, even more popular than yahoo. Those losers will never know what hit 'em. Them and their fancy-ass advertisers. FUCK THEM!!

So anyways. You wanna moderate or sumpin'?

If you think this is real you are an idiot,
Adam


It's really a shame for all of you slobbering fools that my porn addiction is such that I can't take on any other responsibilities.

For good or for awesome

I happen to think that the Euro-mods are much better...I see little of Adam here these days (I think I'm not looking in the right places or something) but have great respect for him too. It's only OhRomana who I dislike.

I think the Euro Mods are wimps. They let that bastard DD74 back in after only a month of banishment. He should have been hunted down, tied to a stake and fucking burned!

Still, being Europeans they're used to strict, extreme right-wing government with none of that American wishy-washy liberal Bill-Clinton-of-rights ninth amendment crapola. They should stay, and we should demand that they get nastier. You slacker Yanks get away with murder here and deserve a couple of Euro martinets to whip you into shape.

Surely it would be loose arses that are the problem, distracting the men from proper procreational activities.

Yo, the Euro mods are fine!

Ok, so, somtimes Sys's 'this is in the wrong forum' can get a bit irksome, but neither I, nor anybody else, wanted to read some newbie's 'how do I get an avatar?' in the News forum. That's just obviously silly - so it gets moved. Nice and easy.

I personally don't like the 3-month expiry in the 'Artiste' forum, but I can see why it's there. In a way, I don't really like the fact that Sys has control over which threads are kept, but he does seem to be pretty fair about it, so I've got no real complaints.

I also think ohramona is a decent moderator, if maybe she's a little too lenient. What do I know, though? Rile her, and she might turn into a total hard-arse!

Having said all that, though, I can't honestly believe you're serious. And hey, Stu, just leave it with the DiamondDogz issue! He's behaving fine, and contributing more to the boards than you currently are. (And, just to avoid confusion here, I think you were probably joking too...)

later,
Chris...

Personally, I would move the offending post to the correct forum without mentioning the movement on the boards and PM the author and tell them their mistake, at the same time welcoming them to the boards and giving them a little run-down on the 'rules' or the forum.
This might have kept that particular member onsite, whereas I think she has given up on TW now.
Another new member lost.

Now, just let me finish

And why should moderators be held to such lofty standards? Our opinions are every bit as valid as those of you non-moderating posters (NMPs). Some of ya'll are just oxygen and font hogging wankers. I'd love to put forth a whole list of posters who suck up my precious O2 and assault my bleary eyes with their shite, but I don't do that--not because I'm a yank and not because I nurture--but because I'm old and a mama, and I have to model a semblance of mature behavior for my babes. I, and I believe this holds true for the mod boys, too, have never let our personal opinions impact the formal treatment of a poster.

By the way, you misspelled 'explicitly'.

ohramona, who makes the lowliest pond scum of posters feel welcome and loved.


Pah! That is not the purpose of a moderator! That trite task should fall to one whose title is something much more inane. Something like, oh ... say ... like a Ms TW or something?

In reply to:

Tati is never here


Yeah, so much for that strategic plan, eh?

In short p2c, how dare you try to divest me of my mod boys? If I had no mod boys, I'd have no boys at all! And oh how I have had those mod boys! The shenanigans that go on in the mod fora when NMPs are up here innocently eating their Wheaties! Oh the days I have spent crumbling cookies across TW with EJ! And the days, well one afternoon anyway, spent doing with Sysiyo what I'm sure he fervently hopes never sees the light above the mod fora. And I know Adam is not included in your proposed scourge of male mods*cough*suck up*cough*, but it would be remiss of me to not mention the full week he spent obsessing over the exact shade of pink for my moniker. (Thank you, Adam. Revlon has agreed to name a shade of nail lacquer *ohramona mauve*, and they ensure me that by the time you make it to the deep south of the US of A for a visit, a prototype will be ready for our pedicure party.)

So no way, Mr. TW! An imperfect assemblage though we may appear, every function has a bit of 'dys' in it, so butt out!

KEITH: It's only OhRomana who I dislike.


My esteem has suffered an irreparable blow. Truly.

No they aren't, at least one of them whom I know personally. A true wanker, if I dare say so.
