Can we elect a new Moderator?

I think its time for some fresh blood.
Can we get Andrew Mod powers? What about Oldmanwinters?
Cybercubed?

They all seem like appropriate Mods, and could help out the overworked current staff.

Can we put this to a vote?

This forum is not a democracy. So it's highly unlikely.

Who gets to be a Mod and who doesn't is a closed-door process and the decisions are made by the Staff. Nobody's really sure how it works, but a few things everybody does know is, if a person asks, they'll never be chosen, and anyone who has "heat" or would be considered too controversial automatically won't be chosen. Temp-Bans also seem to permanently disqualify a person. So Andrew and Cubed wouldn't be considered.

I've even been suggested by a few people over the years, but the suits at Nickelodeon hate me and so do half the members here, so if I were made a Mod it's assured that either half the members would riot and then leave, or Nick would shut the place down.

So yeah, it's a whole big thing. And the guy who gives out the Mod Keys is a hermit. It's been this way for a long time and unlikely to change anytime soon.

I've moderated a few boards in the past and I can tell you that it's not typically a user consensus thing.

Normally the admin appoints a guy, and I've also found that admins pick guys using their own judgement heuristics. So unfortunately if there's a mod you don't like, then chances are you'd just get another you don't like because the same judgement heuristics are going to be used to pick the next guy anyway.

I can tell you that moderators tend to inform board culture quite a bit though.... I can support that with countless examples both good and bad. The worst mods are the Napolean Dynamite types.... tough guy nerd with strong, cliche opinions who attack people, but then "friend-up" to other people to try and trick the group into thinking that the problem isn't actually him. Those guys are the worst (in real life too)....

I nominate anyone without Voltron Derangement Syndrome. I need to know that whomever I'm working with isn't swayed by my irresistible charms, my rugged good looks, . . . my intriguing musk.

It wouldn't be fair to the other, wronger members of the forum.

We are on a message board. We don't see you and thank God we can't smell you. This is all on done in a virtual environment on computer.

Jesus. . . he's showing the signs. It won't be long before he's gone stark raving.

Alright, people! Listen up! We've got a Reverse Bird Box scenario, here. Put on your blindfolds and don't look directly at me. We've already lost so many to the obsession that is. . .Voltron: The Rightest Moderator in the World. Trust me. It'll be like the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Except instead of the terrifying ghosts, you'll just see my radiant beauty. . . burning like the Sun.

I think Voltron is a fine mod as is currently, and the forums don't seem to be that populated to warrant a new mod.

It's not like political discussions are being shut down here either (Well they are prohibited, but people have been discussing them with civility).

What they could do without being held back is my question.
Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Even in a thread about getting new mods, TommyT can’t hide his sad hateboner for PApagreg.

Almost as obsessive as cubed is for Melissa Benoist

We need new mods if they won't deal with a Nick sock puppet account.

there is enthusiasm, and there is someone who literally stated they stuck around just to annoy people. I swear that was PA's 8th or so post here...


but, whatever floats a posters boat these days, I guess.

as for mods, yeah, this place has needed an overhaul for a while. two don't even come around anymore.

Vegita you are low man on the totem pole and I suggest you stop slandering me or I will say something that will get us both temp banned. You of all people should't criticize anyone for "sticking around to annoy people" especially when I said nothing to you in months.

Also here

Can't find the one where he said he was just here to piss everyone off, guess they got wise and deleted it.
Hey turd I only agree with you BEFORE the show aired and if you want to know what I thought of the 1st episode here is the page thread for it https://forums.thetechnodrome.com/sh...&postcount=158. Also I literally never said those things so I suggest you stop listening to Vegita san or do because both of you are the bottom of the pecking order.

Also you are literally the most antagonistic person I've met on this site and that's saying a lot when it comes to this forum. The first time I met you, you tried to close down my thread just because you couldn't so much tolerate that I enjoy something you don't and for the past few months you continuously harass me by falsely reporting me, calling me a troll or spam a plant picture on my threads. Real talk Timmy what have you done for the forum besides picking fights with people who dared to disagree with you and being told off by one of the staff members for the IDW series. Like no wonder Campbell decided to leave when people like you are a forum member. Even me at my worst when I insulted the writers for the 2k12 series wouldn't think of straight up attacking people who like the show and I even introduce an animator from the series I disliked to this forum. That's the difference between you and I Timmy even for an iteration I dislike I still actually add something to the forum while all you do is subtract and give TMNT fans a bad name.

That cartoon was legit funny.
Oh yes because when a person picks fights with people and call them names of course a mod disciplining them would have a vendetta.
