@user parcel kendo: Shh, without moderators this forum will be an catastrophe.
DC can't handle the whole forum alone so he need the help of some moderators to handle the forum against trolls, breakrules and such.

I don't like you either.

@user Fraizeraust: Only the english section, the german one is tame (and also kinda dead!) in comparison.
I'm watching you sleep.

What I've seen more and more lately is that moderators (especially user useigor) answer to posts in the mod comment (see this). I don't think that's what the mod comment field should be used for. When mods want to post an answer to something, they should use the normal reply way to do so, not abuse the mod comments.

@user ohaz: I think mod comments can be used to help the users too (of course that doesn't mean a moderator must use it everytime).

@user ohaz: Especially annoying when you want to reply to the mod comment but can't because double posting is not allowed.

Imho the insta ban after breaking any type of rule should be made to 1 warning then a ban, getting hit by the ban hammer for 1-3 weeks is just too much even if the person hasn't read the rules or done something uninetionally.
Is the w33d on the show real?

@user WinterPwnd: That depends a lot on the moderator. We're given possibility to choose for how long to ban a person.
It's highly unlikely to see anyone get banned for more than one week. I've done it only a few times when I banned people claiming that they were DDoS'ing, 'hackers' and so on. This probably doesn't add up to even 10 times.
The duration depends on how major the rule violation is for the moderator. For example, I've seen few moderators ban people for a week when I ban people for 3 days, but in other cases, I may ban longer than others.
I don't know if other moderators apply this method but I usually increase the ban duration if the person keeps breaking rules, meaning that I ban for a short time (a few hours mostly) on the first time but longer on other times.
There was a warning system before and it was removed. Needless to say, I believe it wouldn't have been removed if it was useful. If we want to warn, we can leave a mod comment or temp ban for 5 minutes so I wouldn't say the current system is flawed.

user ohaz, i usually use mod comment for reports and help. In threads for ideas it's useful to avoid replies that are not ideas. Currently in mod guide there is nothing about mod comments.

@user useigor: Stop doing that or I'll be forced to ask user Leiche or user DC to give me my mod powers back and take them away from you

It is NOT useful to help people that way. The only thing you do is to make it seem like you're someone special. You're only doing it for self-display: "Look I'm a mod, I don't need to answer like all those filthy casuals, I can answer in a mod comment". Seriously. Stop it. This is a FORUM. Help should be posted in normal posts, because that's what a forum is about.

In my opinion, the best moderator is @user Starkkz:
@user Rainoth: punishes hard and firmly, but that's good. @user 0a: and @user useigor: are usually abusing their powers and are really hot-heads. No wonder I might be banned for this.

Wait, but how Leiche can change the rank of a user like giving moderator rank?
You nailed my head with this...
Anyway, when i saw you was a moderator in the past, you did a good job as a moderator too, i appreciate you.

@user Fraizeraust: That's correct, any moderator can change ranks of the users now. That means we're allowed to do permanent bans with a very good reason.
user DC has written:
editing of profiles of others has been enabled for mods recently


@user BountyHunter: I'm not the best moderator, I'm just the kind of moderator that moderates himself before deciding if someone broke a rule, therefore I don't ban as often as user useigor, user 0a or user Rainoth. I might have broken rules before but I've just been banned once for:
rules §5.5 - Do not behave like a moderator and do not comment rule violations or spam
lol

user ohaz, threads for ideas requests to post only ideas. If i'd replied then he'd possibly explain in new post, therefore it potentially increase amount of needless information. Well, in some cases i can remove comment when it helped because red color takes some attention.

@user Starkkz: In conclusion, moderators have more rights now like changing the rank of a user.
What if a moderator abuse these rights (well, there are less chance that a moderator can do it) but just in your opinion what do you think?
With these changes that @user DC made i don't really agree at all but it his decision.
