Title: Is vudu the only mod who does his job around here?
Post by: ShyGuy on May 04, 2011, 09:10:14 PM
Seriously, people.


Edit: No

To be fair, I reported the post and said I wanted to close it, but I wanted to make sure there was agreement on that decision.

Unacceptable. We cannot tolerate uncertainty in the funhouse. Indecision is weakness.

BAN HER!

I've been busy most of the week, but if I'd been here I'd have voted not to lock it, at least at the point it was locked. I don't feel like it needed it. It certainly had the potential to go that way, but I don't think we should be locking threads just because they might at some point need to be locked. I don't believe in preemptive strikes.

Also, this is probably neither the time nor the place, but is there a reason the email telling me somebody reported something for moderation doesn't have the reported post in it? I got UncleBob's report, but I didn't have time to check the forums and wanted to know what he was complaining about.

Indeed, I thought that thread was actually very civil, save for a few people who were trolling it just to try to get the thread closed.

I don't see "Death of FBI's #1 most wanted terrorist" on that list of undiscussable topics


unless it's just because the President made the order, that qualifies it as politics and since OBL was a muslim extremist, that makes it religious and the fact that vudu felt the need to close it when nothing was wrong (& every other mod let it be) is "ghey" and that constitutes sexual orientation. Then I understand, because that would be a violation of all 3. Not that I care anyway since the conversation was already over.

Can we not take a joke? ....actually no we can't (points to "Whoomp There It Is" (http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?topic=31477.0) Thread that got *locked* because it had a guy that looks like the president of the united states in the video)

Your mom didn't think that thread was funny. She says that you should behave yourself and stop trying to get threads locked.

Oh. What?

Oh, also" that you shouldn't forgot what this coming Sunday is? hint, hint"

Hey, stop that! That tickles!..

That thread was political because it contained too much "America **** Yeah!!". Everyone has been bashing America like a red headed step child for the last decade making it the "Norm". America **** Yeah!! is unacceptable on NWR.

No, I got that. I meant that the text of the post being reported should be in the email.

Photos aside, there was a lot of talk in regards to foreign policy and such that was political speech.

It's served me well on the forums and as a member of staff in general.

Remember, nothing like tossing a hand grenade into an email thread.

Anyway, to answer the original question, I do my job and I'm very good at it.

It just so happens my job (http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/forums/index.php?topic=34161.msg668921#msg668921) doesn't require a lot of effort.
