Does FES recruit?
« on: February 07, 2008, 10:50:16 AM »
By what means does someone become a moderator?
-Being personally known by the administrator
-Proving themselves to be a conversation worthy intellectual
-Being a FE'er
-A combination of the above

I highly doubt I could ascend to the rank through granted privileges (although I would like to), but even so I'm curious as to how current moderators got there and the implications. For instance, does Daniel personally know theEngineer or Tom Bishop? Can the group of Mods be balanced in the site's belief system?
If I was asked to imagine a perfect deity, I would never invent one that suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Christians get points for originality there.

I suppose a combo of the above, but...Daniel's gone, The FES is near-dead, no-one has the power to grant mod status anymore since Daniel's gone, so no more mods...

You must spend one night with Tom Bishop. Him-decked out in full leather, You-roofied up and passed out. Ask yourself...Is it worth it?

Oh it is!
Yes, quite.  No one would ever claim to be someone they're not in their profile name.

He used to be. Then he abused it, so they stripped him of mod status.

I had thought he stole that power and got banned for it.  Hrm maybe that was someone else or I just remember incorrectly.

How do you steal mod status? I don't know, maybe I remembered wrong...just can't imagine how to steal mod status...

He claimed it had to do with the True Believes forum section, but I don't know anything about this.

Meh...Tom can't hack two shits. My guess is either the mods accidentally gave him global mod powers when they meant to just give him board mod powers, or they gave it to him with full knowledge.

EDIT: I own one of these forums, and after checking things out, I think I know how it came about. It must have been that for some reason, changing the status of a user was granted to board mods(which is stupid), when its supposed to be granted only to admins and global mods. So, Tom, being the SOB that he is, changed his own status.

It was a mistake. We were trying to give him access to the FEB after switching to the new board system.

Old thread. Same question. I'd rather bump this than start again.

We should be soon. But we haven't had any contact with Daniel, so he is either working feverishly or pursuing a normal life. Hara, I think, was in contact with him a few weeks ago, and claims to have seen the new board and such, but he wouldn't answer any questions, so it may have been an ego-massage. We've been stalking him, but he isn't replying to anything.

It's been a while since I've seen anything new about the new site but so much work has gone into it (I've seen it) I have to figure it will be up and running at some time in the future.
Where did you educate the biology, in toulet?

That's good. I wonder how he can sink a lot of time into the site then just forget about it. Daniel seems to be a weird character. We need to start some serious stalking.

He needs to appoint another admin. Someone that could work on the site when he isn't, and keep a handle on the mod situation (Meaning before all the new mods, back when we had nobody).
