    The first two ,are still the veterans!

    Wouldnt be better for all moderators to follow a set schedule,and act all of them at the same time!

    This will lead that low skilled moderators could be influenced,while working at the same time with the experimented ones.

    I proposed a resource template and markscheme that was promptly ignored in the mod lobby.

    I just find it hard to believe that the ads do not cover the cost of the site, considering how many visitors the site has and knowing the revenue that ads at such sites can generate.

    The old server costed over $100 USD a month, the new server costed ~$845 USD to buy, and I believe Ralle pays ~$60 USD a month on internet and power usage for it. He also has to pay yearly for the vB license, which costs ~$150 USD. Last time I saw the ad revenues, they only gave $20-40 USD a month. Ralle has lost quite a bit of money paying the site upkeep, even with the donations.

    The site IMO will never improve it can not and will not if the entire staff is not redesigned. It will continue to be a faltering mass of fail as long as the higher staffs attitudes influence the lower end to be assholes.
    From what I have seen
    The moderators and admins play on two different fields completely.
    not to mention nothing seems to flow, one staff member bans for certain jokes another makes those jokes.
    Some mods warn some just ban without reading context or even caring to understand the situation.

    The site is DOOOMED DOOOOOOOOOMED!

    oh and
    yea... everything you do is perfect. You are never in the wrong ever... riiiiiiighhhht...
    You get pissy with people when you don't like their views or friends.
    you get pissy with people because you hold grudges about their past behavior
    you DO have favoritism.
    you get pissy with people because of what other people say.
    you get pissy with people because you just don't like them for random ass reasons.
    you use your power extremely inconsistently.

    Oh and acting like you have become super mature or whatever you are trying to do is really gay.

    Sansui = QFT.

    The end part, anyway. I think this site could still stand a chance.

    What about the ranking as World's Number 1 Modding Comunity?


    We still stand in 1st place for something,and that issue is concerning a work done by our moderators:Wulf,Rui,Poot.etc!


    And even us peons contributed with something,so maybe we are one against each other,but without our team work and past,we would never be here.So,hands down!

    The hive is the #1 modding site because it's the only modding site that asks its users to vote for itself on some silly top 100 site whose rankings mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. If you're referring strictly to traffic as the criteria for 'best', you'll find that quantity never guarantees quality.

    I don't think it's fair to be calling certain people out, especially not here in this topic. It's important that the hive does not alienate any of its users, even those whose opinions, actions, and demeanor you do not agree with.

    Metal seems to fix everything, including moderators. Therefore I'll quote an album.

    KILL EM ALL!! =D

    On a serious note, I don't go everywhere on the hive so I probably don't see as much abuse as most of you, but what I have seen is, Moderators are hypocrites when it comes to joking. Also, Brad.Dude saying to keep this discussion calm is like Osama Bin Laden saying there should be peace. Speaking of peace...

    Peace Sells... But who's buying?

    A fine example of the moderationship of MasterHaosis.

    Maybe there was something in whispers that I didn't see, but even then I doubt he deserved a 3k ban.

    Master wasn't even in the chat lobby,and even if he was on second chat room,things like these slip,it's no big deal!

    Don't incriminate MH that much,think of the chat room without him!

    I hope people start speaking out without a push from moderators. Nobody complained about MasterHaosis until a moderator (in this thread I believe) spoke out.

    MasterHaosis is the least of the moderators who you should be worrying about. Dr00d, the pic you showed occours to most of the moderators, and I think MasterHaosis is not really a man who abuses/mistreats his powers. Even if it was a joke, nastyboy flamed up Ghan. I can't go around flaming respected moderators and then saying "sorry, it was a joke"
