    Interesting. Did you find good use of it?

    It was quite useful, there are a lot of skilled users in the resource sections who know the approval/rejection criteria. :3 With such a small staff, it'd be pretty good to have again.

    Last time we had it only specific users had the power to minimod. Do you think everybody should be able to?

    Yes I did. There are multiple examples of situations that it can prevent. Like when people see a really bad coded spell (as an example), people tend to just flame the crap out of the guy in the comments - which is not encouraging at all. Or when you actually post something useful to update the resource, it will rather get a NO because "mod didn't say so, thus me so op me haz mod on my side fakk juu". And of course the lst goes on... :)

    It gives a quick overview of who thinks the resource should be approved. But people being able to post their opinion as normal is sufficient if you ask me, but of course Vengeancekael has been moderating more stuff than I have.

    That may be, but it'd still be an additional speed-up. I guess it'd be best if only specific users were allowed to do so though.
    As far as the spells section goes, Mag's doing a good job and keeping the pending resources at a low number, but it could be added in as a backup should he be busy suddenly, since he's the only active spell mod right now.

    Pardon the sentence I will use but there's too many shitters saying "best shit ever" or alike, might not even be a troll just random dude who doesn't know crap about the current topic :)

    My guess is that it is quite easy to tell who is who. ;)

    Also some restrictions could be placed upon it.. like I dunno; must have been a member for a year or whatever (In case fearing unjust judgment.)

    But I wouldn't mind having it

    It's probably a little bit easier than reading through every post, and sadly not everyone who has an opinion can actually be bothered voicing it via posts.

    How about making it so that the moderator can give these powers to a specific set of people as he pleases?
    It saves time because then we don't have to make intricate rules for it ;o

    Such a system already existed back in 2009 or something, so it probably shouldn't be too hard to reinstate should Ralle wish to do this.

    A good criteria for whether or not they should be allowed to vote would be if they've submitted X resources of that kind. For example if someone submits X amount of models they should be allowed to post their opinions on models but nowhere else, unless they meet that sections criteria. Just my thoughts.

    It's a good idea. But what if none of them are approved?

    Then they wouldn't count towards them giving their opinion. I personally wouldn't want someone with 7 "rejected" spells telling me whether or not my spells should be approved.
