Alright. I've been thinking about this for a while, and it seems it's time for a poll. Do we need mods, karma, or both?

Consider these poll results as a formal petition to the Admin.

Personally I voted mods... cause it's a default feature in this web board... I think it's annoying to ask to the webmaster to build in karma.. (or he has to find an hack on the forums of phpbb itself with step by step lists)

But I see moderators as the MOST needed one.
But again ;) that's just only my opinion :) I'm intrested to know what the final results will be :)

@spacecowboy.. do you have the intentions to send it to the xprize team in some time ? 8)

If the Admin does not respond before sufficient votes are in, then yes. Otherwise, it's the Admin's job.

i think the last time the admin was on was when we had our good friend CHEATER terrorizing the message boards, and he disabled guest posting.

Then, if the Admin does not see this and respond before ~30 votes are in, I'll email the Big Bosses.

Hey, we're a fifth of the way there already. I also sincerely doubt that it will attract that many votes, but it's worth a shot.

Look at all the people using their bandwidth to vote here....
:? 8 votes.... that's all ?... come on people... even older votes got more :cry:

Note: I know some other smart people are over here... don't clear your cookies.. don't make multiple accounts... else we would be just lieing to ourself and all others.

In the end, I just hope as manny features as possible should be added :)
Moderators just a higher priority... but karma... also nice :)
But low pressure on the admin.. may get faster more results and easier to convince him :lol:

Look at the front page xprize vote... only 178 so far... history can be made in such small almost not popular places :?

This from someone who knows nothing about UBB administration...

But why is HTML off? It's a *much* more flexible language than BBCode, more widely known, and not really any different. If the board was HTML 4.01 compliant, we could "Do More Stuff" with our posts.

Mods, Karma, or Both -- what about neither? Other than the CHEATER infestation, I think this board operates just find on its own.

Well, we have moderators now, on this way we'll never have the problems again with Franklin and Cheater as we had before.
Free speech stays.. and nothing will be deleted or removed without a very good reason (offending someone etc..)

When topics are posted in the wrong forum section, we may move them to the right forum.. for all other stuff.. it just stays the same as before :wink:

Btw, the credits for moderators gows to The Legionnaire :)
He handled the most with Dave (admin) 8) Respect 8)

Post Moderators are good!   Posted on: Wed May 12, 2004 12:18 pm
:) Excellent... this board truly was starting to need moderators.

As someone who has been running BBSs and other online interactions for close to 20 years now, I can tell you from experience it will be better for all of us.

Onward and upward!
