Reports within the newbie forum are taken very seriously and usually ends up with the banhammer coming out.

    Thanks for your input tobio. Keeping new members here is difficult, as you're starting to realise. However, all it takes is one or two new posters to be persistent and bring new life into the forum. You never know, you could end up finding yourself in charge of the newbie forum or even a general mod. I'm always on the lookout for people who want to help the site. Some would say there's too many mods here, but the thing is not everyone is active at the same time.

    Anyway, stick around

    Cheers
    oh you should probably cull some of the mods. Several of them haven't been in Japan or on the site in a year or so.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    Ini was a mod. Past tense. Your blown mind is a fair indication of why he no longer is.

    I deleted troll threads/posts in Applying. I'm not sorry I did this and would do it again. I got a bit overzealous in my deletion once, but I apologized to the user involved for doing so. It was an innocent mistake, and I'd appreciate it if you would stop attempting to make it out to be something otherwise, ihate. That was a single incident and it was addressed.

    No. Where the aforementioned incident was concerned, however, "trolling" was the appropriate label (despite my ham-fisted response). Relevant messages were recovered and examined and my actions were viewed a bit more sympathetically (not much, but a bit) by fellow staff members.

    This thread is getting off topic. If you guys just want to use me as the site's whipping boy, take it to The Lounge. Criticism posted in here should be constructive and specific, not just random digs. To be honest, the vast majority of moderating I do goes completely unnoticed, and it's becoming increasingly apparent that you guys don't want me to post my opinions as often, nor engage in discussion as often. Message received. I'll be laying low and moderating only as much as this position requires in the future.

    I think the constructive specific criticism is that people want you to stop using your moderating powers to alter threads where you're talking about your own opinion (under the guise of removing "trolling") when no mods appear to care about trolling in every other thread.

    I get it. You didn't like the way I moderated a pointlessly stupid thread I created in the time-wasting sub-forum and in which I stated I was going to moderate strictly. I learned my lesson and won't be creating another thread like that.
