  • mods to monitor certain sections

    following on from the previous thread about for sale section why not divide your selfs up into looking after certain sections , now i know your thinking thats not possible due to numbers of mods vs number of sections ect so maybe it`s time for additional mods to help out , there were two in the for sale thread that offered to help and i`m sure there`s plenty of others who are also willing to help , for example wayne who has been sorting the meets out could be national event organiser mod

    what you guys think ( mods and members )

    What benefit would having a mod who only did sales section have over someone who does the whole site?
    So if a thread kicks off in General the Sales mods sit there and do nothing as it's not their section and have no access possibly?

    The mod team used to have chunks of time when no one was on - this doesn't really happen these days which to me suggests we have better coverage than previously - we also have a lot of automatic moderation going on (hence why not many of the spambots seem to land on here these days) which used to be the biggest problem getting on in the morning and seeing porn/viagra links all over the place

      I think you have a point Daz but i also slighty agree with IanJ but i do think we need more Mods as i sometime see posts that need changing/deleting or whatever and not able to do so.

        i can see daz point of view, me my self now dont even look in the for sale section as much now, as dont find it any help at all,

        i know this has been brought up many of times, and not meaning to bring it up again, but having the for sale section back to the way it was is better for us ''vxronline' member's ''

        might be a lot of work for you lot ''mods ''admin'' etc etc,

        but as daz said above try adding a mod to watch certain Fields, this way that mod will have a much better understanding of that Field, and if he is asked about another, will/could help if not pass them on to some 1 Else that has more experience in such Field.

        but got to agree that the for sale section needs to go back to old,

        as i used to read other people's reply's on the product that was selling, , it helped me out a good few times, saved me a lot of money, as people can now over price, scam you saying its still for sale when its been sold , etc etc

        kind regards

          I agree with your points mate, i dont bother with the sales section and selling things well i havent had a sole pm me.

          It would be easier if folks could just ask some un binding questions or discuss what i am selling in my ad but i also appreciate the reason that section is how it is.

          To be honest some people did need a reality check on some of there prices of things

            The site lost two very good mods in recent times.

            Why don't they give some of the RO more moderation tools then they can sort it out.

            I'd get rid of one mod an replace him with a new one. Just closes threads an deleted posts an then leaves smart comments which sometimes comes across as he is talking down to people like he's better than everyone else.

              RO's can moderate their own regional threads already.

                  I know exactly who you are talking about, afraid he's a good guy and saved my *** from the sin bin a few times so i like him!

                  Flinty was also a lovely chap!

                  The other mod who went was no great loss tbh...

                    Tin - it's not really your place to comment on who mods or not - the team works well together and although you may think that one individual made a decision a lot of discussion goes on behind the scenes as to what action to take.

                    The RO role and a moderator role are very different - as a moderator I need to care not as to whether I'm popular, in fact being a mod tends to make you unpopular.
                    Being an RO on the other hand makes you the friendly face of the forum - person who arranges and attends meets and being a friend to all within the region

                      The for sale section is a pain, but such as life, if noone wants the part you won't get pm's, iv got loads to shift but it all gets lost in posts above yours, also not being able to bump the thread is a pain for example, if someone is looking for said part in 6 months time, there is no way they would look at that thread and wonder if the part is still available, I I know I wouldn't bother PMing anyone about a part listed 6 months ago,

                      More mods may help, but the guys do the best they can

                        I'm not very popular - how do I apply to become a moderator?

                          Well I think the mods have to be pert of the forum as a whole not just put in place to close threads an talk down to people like they have more right to be here than others.

                          We are supposed to have freedom of speech in this country but all of a sudden we can't say anything unless it's suitable for church on a Sunday. There never used tonne the divide between the mods an the members there were all our friends an everything went smooth.

                          Now its like the mods just wana delete posts an close threads for fun. like this will close soon because a certain mid dos t like it an that's it no more can be asked or said as them threads get deleted.

                            The mods all have fun in the avatar thread, should pop in sometime Tin, dont think the mods and members are divided as much as you say they are you probably dont notice how many threads the Mods post comments on, and no not always the ones that have to be closed

                              You see I disagree the mods become mods because they have brung alot to the forum. They know the brand inside out an can give lots of usefull information.

                              Ian wasn't a mod when i joined or some of the others. There role as a vxl ethuasist shouldn't be compromised justbecause their a mod. There put there because their liked an are food people.

                              But some just take it too a whole new level like they have the site run by the bible or state law.
