I've been here for sometimes, and still haven't figure out what exactly do mods do..

M&M, most of the time we just delete spam and ban the spammers. Sometimes we have to intervene when things get too out of control in heated debates, we must look into all reported posts (we get an email when one is reported)

And sometimes we just delete threads and PM the people who posted if it's inappropriate..........you know, like naked vegetables!

I was actually thinking there were too few mods recently- or at least posting one, lol! I remember a few times only one mod was on and we had a wave of spammers posting some really bad stuff. I felt so bad for the single mod who had to try to simultaneously stop the spammer and clean everything up.

There are also people who are listed as mods but only do administrative tasks. They need the mod clearances to be able to do those things though.

alright. guilty here

actually that's when I got the first hint of things you guys do... because aside from that incident, I never feel like I'm being moderated .

Anyway, do you have to read every single posts and be on line 24/7? oh, and what is the "reported post"?

Whatever you do, you got my full support.

Oh heavens no! We could not possibly read every post! And no, we aren't on 24/7.......not even close. There are plenty of times there isn't a single mod online, but it usually isn't long before one of us pops up

And a "reported post" is when a member feels a post is inappropriate in some way, there is a little red triangle to click and report it. See up in the right hand corner of my post M&M? You should see a little white triangle trimmed in red with a ! inside it. If you feel this post is inappropriate, you click that and follow directions and it will email each of the mods and administrators simultaneously

The reported post thing is what you push when you want to let us know there's a post we need to look at, whether it's spam or something that's gotten ugly.

I doubt we read every single post, and there are probably some dead hours when there's not a mod online, but very few, but since it's all voluntary and not a paid position, we don't punch a time clock
