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.
