    Post Poll: Is An Additional Mod Needed?

    For the past few days, many of the highly active members on the server have noticed huge gaps of time when no mods are present. These times are common enough to have earned the name "mod dead times" and can range anywhere from 1 hour to 5 or 6 hours. During these times, people are generally more out of control than when mods are on. Multiple times we have wanted someone muted or kicked but nobody was there to deliver, whether the person was chat spamming, whining, or whatever. Here I'll refer to "porncraft" which happened while I was offline but eventually led to multiple server members seeing WoW hentai and one parent supposedly noticing this. The next issue deals with new people coming into the server. Many new people join daily and leave within 10-20 minutes of joining because nobody was there to promote them. You can tell them to go to the forums but even then they're upset, because they still have to wait. We lose many potentially good builders and good community members daily to the fact that they can't be promoted. People then leave, saying that this server sucks, that it's horrible, that they can't do anything, and it spreads to people they know, looking for a server. I know it's hard for a mod or an admin to see all of this from our point of view, because they don't see these times, and when they do they have the power to deal with it. But we don't have that power, and nobody is on most of the time to help us out. A lot of us are getting tired of these times, and something needs to be done. Please, consider this from our point of view.

    If people get upset for not getting promoted right away, or take the time to go to the forums and ask for promotion, i'm not sure they are the we want on the server.

    More mods maybe

    I can understand people thinking the server sucks. It's full of lag and I can hardly do anything when I'm on the server. The UK server has practically no lag at all. And Towny also turns me off from the server myself.

    However, there should be another mod to moderate things.

    You're being ridiculous if you expect them to wait up to five hours.

    After people got out of control last night and began talking about porn, I think we definitely need more moderators; a few kicks and temp bans really were needed.

    Sounds like someone wants to be made a mod to me. Sorry if your server ego has been bruised because a new visitor wasn't patient enough to come back another time to get promoted to builder. The server would have been more than rewarding if they had chose to come back the next day or in a few hours. Why should you care if someone you haven't met goes around and says the PCGamer US server sucks? It obviously doesn't, and it has something that a lot of other servers do not have. A fantastic community and just a little something called a name. And I never see much lag, nothing like it used to be a few months ago or even half a year ago when the server would be up for a day or two a week. Imagine what those new people said about you then? They couldn't even log in to take a look. At least now they can explore and get to know people until they are made builder. Snyte has been keeping things running very nicely.

    Sorry If I wasn't on at 3:30 in the morning to play minecraft. At least that's when I noticed zx made this post. Everyone knows I love to swing the bammer, and it would have been my pleasure if I had not been sleeping.

    We don't need more mods in my opinion. I used to think that way, but it's really not necessary. Mods serve a clear purpose, and I feel that purpose has been adequately served.

    I know how some mods feel about getting anew mod, and I have not been asking for a new one because it wasn't necessary at the time, but now, I personally think it is time to get another mod going.

    I don't know how to say this, but mods don't know how it is like when they are not around. Because there is really an enforced age limit now, we need to set some ground rules so things don't get out of hand for the younger kids. I mean, do you want a 10 yr. old's parents to walk by and see a few people on the server swearing their heads off and talking about way inappropriate stuff? It would make PCG look like a bad place for kids, and we do not want that.

    If we got a responsible mod that is frequently online, we can keep some of these things from happening. I know that we cannot control some of the things that happen on the server at night, but kids should know that night hours are usually when 'bad' things happen.

    I know I myself cannot control what the mods and admins think, but I think this topic is something you mods and SnyTe should really consider.

    Thanks for listening.

    First, I'd like to say, I didn't post this so that I could be a mod. There's a reason I haven't voted on this post, reason being its a collection of community opinion, my opinion was made clear when I posted this. I made this post so showcase my arguments and the arguments of others, both for and against the idea. Yeah, people can explore, but for a few hours? With no warp, nothing to do? And things are great now, and I wasn't here for some of those times, when the lag was too bad to move and the server was rarely up, but what I'm saying is, it'd be at least worth a TRY to have a new mod, and see if server condition improves a little. If things get worse than the mod can become a builder again. But it's worth a shot.

    Sorry Zx I didn't mean to imply you had any negative motives for making this topic.
