Quick question about moderators
I was just wondering how moderators were chosen, I noticed that a lot of the moderators come from the UK, are they the founders of animesuki or something? And the rest, are they chosen by reputation or post count or by some mysterious council of animesuki admins?
If by "a lot" you mean "three", then yes a lot do currently reside in the UK... :)
However the site founder does not, as you might realise if you read the site history.
To answer your question: Staff members are chosen based on their merit, as defined and observed by the currently active staff.
Basically we identify established members we feel would be good at the job (with all that it entails) and offer them a position. If they accept, they join the team. The process is wholly disconnected from post count, reputation, or any other forum tracked variable. Currently there is no established way of recommending a member of the forum to us, for consideration, with the exception that we routinely exclude anyone who puts forward their own name ;).
There has been some internal debate as to the relative worth of trying to involve forum members / member representatives in the background processes of the forum (i.e. the workings of the "mysterious council" as you put it, or "what the staff do to keep things running smoothly") but as yet we've not come to any sort of agreement on if or how we would go about this...
Thank you for the explanation
Hmm.. let's see you, xris and Catgirls.. right? :)Quote - NightWish
And how are staff members demoted.. :)Quote - NightWish
It's strange but after reading some old threads and some things here and there it would appear that over the years there have been other staff then the ones we know today..
Hm.. I have to wonder what goes inside the minds of the people who agree..Quote - NightWish
To me it sounds like a bad decision whichever way you look at it.. (yes I would drop such an offer on the spot)
Q. for the Mods : Anything good about the position.?
BTW NightWish.. why isn't Kiva a mod yet.. :)
Or if making him a Mod is out of the question, then how about creating a new category an placing him there.. :D
I there are lots of us who don't like Kairin and how she ended up from the image of a kind and gentle character into the some sort of drug addict :'( well.. that and.. the fact that you made her, without a second thought, the mascot for the forum as well.. she may be a mascot for the main site and the staff.. uhh.. I mean THE COUNCIL.. but how many forum members would accept her as their mascot.. :)
Don't you think there are way too many people here for whom not only does she not tick but she's probably the opposite of what they would want as a mascot. (I mean consider what suggestions Kiva got for his wallpapers ;))
IMO, for the forum, you should have just held a contest every year and picked an anime character.. at least that way people could identify or get to know him/her. Mascots, no matter how good they are will eventually get old..
Anyway.. while there are a lot of us who hate~ Kairin, there are lots more of us who luv Kiva for all the work he has put for this community.. :)
So?.. what's the councils~ opinion on this.. :)
Mmm.. is that one of your little white lies~ ;)Quote - NightWish
You sure.. :)Quote - NightWish
Quote - History Lesson By GHDproI should also mention that I couldn't have done this all by myself. From March 14, 2003 I have been aided by a great group of people, who by now pretty much do all of the work of adding new torrents to the site. A few of them who have been there since the beginning are warnold, xris and anime_layer.
I don't see them in the leader board. Are they secret~ members of staff.. :3
Wouln't you take action if you noticed a overwhelming negative feeling.. as in consider it spam etcetera and delete it.. ;)Quote - NightWish
You know I don't see an overwhealming positive feeling towards her :P all I see are people looking at Kiva's creation as fanart and manipulating it like some sort of doll or ball of clay..
I said drug addict as an analogy to how twisted and deformed Kairin has become, next thing you know people will start asking for a 3-headed Kairin with pink spots http://forums.animesuki.com/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif
Sheesh not that kind of hate..Quote - NightWish
I just can't accept that kind of twisted character.. why couldn't Kiva said no to all those suggestions of Kairin in this.. Kairin like that..
Look at how
And drug addict was meant as a joke to her evolution in Kiva's wallpapers and art ;)
Day 1 - Kairin comes to Animesuki.. :)
Day 2 - Karin becomes the cutest thing on Animesuki.. xD
Today.. - Kairin is a.. a.. I don't know.........
I was asking for your opinion on the question of promoting Kiva to etcetera.. that way maybe people won't ask him to make just every damn possible version of Kairin..Quote - NightWish
How much time until Kairin starts sprouting wings.. what you think I'm joking ^^
Well actually I am joking since Kairin already has wings.. :p
That's all I had on my mind about Kairin.. I wont comment anymore..
Reminder to NightWish - You promised you would add a little something to the FAQ about the penalty points.. ^___^
I'm really curios to know if everyone can see that little thingy in my Profile..
And can I ask that you stop dragging this thread off topic. It now appears to be a Kairin image board :eyebrow:
