    Interresting - A good bunch of people which I never saw coming as admins.. but then again I keep thinking of people from the first time I met them.. (while also keeping them in the current as well :vw_wtf:)

    Anyway I must agree with this:

    Quoted for truth.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    I will however be looking forward to see faster actions around the forum.. I already know of one thread which have remained misplaced for 4 days. :wink:

    Great job in becoming moderators, but what will it help. Do we seriously need tons of moderators? Hope they will be active.

    It wasn't a necro-post, was it? It wasn't even a month.

    Well, dunno about getting more.. but the idea of having a good bunch is to make sure that someone is always active, since there is different time zones and people live lives outside here as well. Wolverrabid was an example of one who was very very active that he basically did almost everything :eekani: But sadly it had an impact on him, combined with the trouble's he got into and he disappeared from Hive.

    We're all just teenagers or people in the low 20's, so we all have busy real lives and/or are just lazy :p

    I don't have a busy life, nor am I lazy, and I am 17. I do a lot outside of hive, but still manage to have time to come here and post and keep up on things.

    I'd say the current moderators are some of the most active users on the Hive (and hiring people from outside to do the modding wouldn't exactly be cheap). :p

    Hehe, hey lets buy modders :xxd: Lolz.

    Nah, I think the sleeping hours is most important reasons to have more then just a few "very active ones". Since there need to be one on at all times.. but so far that also seems to be the case, so why are we still talking about it :wink:

    It is clear that activity has nothing to do with rank or status on this site. Mecheon for example was still a global moderator last time I heard despite not being noticably active in years. There were other cases like that which are pointless to mention. Additionally many highly active and diligent moderators were removed from staff because their work was not of a satasfactory quality (although I never understood the logic used to decide that).

    Moderators basically are choosen when needed. At times there were multiple people being considered for the same position. Generally, anyone who has experience with an area needing a moderator, who have a moderatly good behaviour and are decently active at that time gets considered for being a moderator.

    Ultimatly at times some choosen moderators have not been worthy of their positions (or atleast it appears so) so were removed despite some working very hard.

    Frankly the current moderators will probably work fine for a WC3 support site in this day and age as the member pool will hardly grow. Ofcourse that is if they remain active.

    A moderator would never have been promoted if he was never active.

    You heard wrong.

    Mention away.

    Who?

    Such as?

    The member pool continues to grow by a more than insignificant amount.

    I think he is referring to himself re "Who", and re "Such as?" MasterHaosis comes to mind.
