No need to hide.
First of all, check out the title people. JUST the mod team, nothing else is to be the subject in this thread.
Now, to begin:
As for myself, I am more or less contempt with my work so far. My "in the middle" timezone + my school and other activities see to it that I come online at a time when most things are dealt with.
For example, in a rare occasion of me coming online in the morning, I locked Dechuu's thread (limit reached). If I hadn't come online then, if I had come online now, like I usually do, that piece of work would already be done. My fault? Hm, sorry for living here and going to school.
I am active essentially every day, I check the whole forum (I can only leave the forum when there are no "red" forum images lol) and I check MOST posts. Recently, however, I've been less detailed and fly across the forum quickly, leave a few posts and go do something else, for I am in a tight schedule. Sorry for that.
When I do have time to effectively mode, and, to be honest, even when I don't, I do what I can, the best I can. I lock and edit what needs to be locked and edited, delete, PM... I always try to be nice and understandable in my actions.
One new user, for example, made a thread in the art section, quad posted and then double posted some more. I merged her 3 posts (and fixed that later double post), fixing her art thread, and I of course told her why. Since she was offline at that moment, I took the liberty of moving her opening post to the profile forum, seeing that it was more suited there.
The Art forum btw, if I recall, isn't my designated area.
To summarize, I do what I can, when I can. I try to be as active as possible, and I think I don't have any negative feedback in that department. I'm still relatively new as a mod, I'm prone to mistakes. Sorry for all errors, I try my best.
As for "TimeForChange", just... Wow. I cannot express my shock at your post... To be clear, the one with the 3 "evidence" images, the one featuring me, of course.
For the love of atheism, you cannot be serious. I have never said and wished anything bad for Dev, LO an MB, and while we are on that page, ANYONE ELSE. That is the most lighthearted of jokes, and it CANNOT be taken negatively. The ones who take THAT negatively should RETHINK it very carefully. It was a playful post in which I indirectly stated my "fanboyism" towards Sunlighter, and to be very clear, the joke itself (and any offensive bits inside it) are WAY out of character. I would never insult or degrade anyone else in order to make myself look better, for any reason. While we are there, I only insult and "flame" on rare occasions, and that is always directed at simply bad people.
I am, like with most people, on a friendly and O.K. basis with Dev and Little Orchid. As for Mishimaboy, I think that I have always been nice to him, unlike 90% of the members here, who hated him so much in his first period here... I never knew why and I have never done what the others have done, again, for whatever reason. It is my understanding that he posted a lot and that he had a rather outlandish theory? Oh my gosh, let him burn! -.-
So, TimeForChange, my point is that I am simply INCAPABLE of being mean and malevolent to people who don't deserve it, much less tell Dev, LO and MB that they are "unimportant". If you have anything negative to say about me, go ahead, but please be correct and fair in your accusations. Everything can be resolved and discussed, if done right.
As for the rest, I thank you for all the kind words. In these previous paragraphs I said what I think objectively about my work, and I come to the conclusion that I am an O.K. mod, but of course, I can improve, like everyone else.
My input on the rest of things said here:
Tiex and Melee are to inactive, if you ask me. Again, no prob against them, but inactivity doesn't do good. Cuz of this I consider them "on the line", in other words, they could lose their mod status for a understandable reason. I would rather see them more active though, they could keep their jobs then, no problem.
WhoreANG and Jurn are active most of the time, and they do what they get to do. Someone already put me in the same group with them, and I think I agree.
Tofma does his job very well, he is the one in charge for the advanced gaming and strats, no? There is nothing to complain about, he does what he is "payed for".
Muggy (I can't spell his full username rigth) and Gotenks have inactive periods, though they seem to contribute what they can when they are here. They should try to be more active, though.
Razer... No, I don't start my sentence like that because of anything negative, it is just...
Well, I don't get all the praise. We all have negative and positive sides, and personally I don't pay attention and I haven't noticed any negative sides to her. However, I've been told about her negative sides by other people, so I try to keep that in mind (if the things stated are true). My point is, regardless of this, that I don't think that she is "incomparably better" than the rest of us. She is active, she seems to be here on a regular basis, she locks, edits etc., like she should. How does that make her "so much better" than the rest of us? Last time I checked, the rest of us also do that.
Razer, you know that I have no ill thoughts about you, and I have no malevolent goal in this post, and yeah, who knows, you might be the best mod here, but I don't get all these people saying that you are, without any doubt, the best mod. It is good that people like you, far from that, and again, you are a good mod (as far as I am aware), but people should be a bit more precise and level headed in their feedback about you.
Sunlighter... Yeah, people, call her by her name, and not just her, but everyone else. She has expressed (like some others have as well) her wish not to be called Paragon anymore, that should be respected, like you would anyone else.
I think that the problem is, well, that most people simply aren't use to her.
We have to have a comparison: Razer and Sunlighter.
As stated, BOTH do their jobs, quite well as people say. Then why do you all love Razer and hate Sunlighter?
It is no secret that we can't all get along. Some people will simply like Razer, some people will simply like Sunlighter. Some people like Razer's way of posting and general attitude, some hate her way of posting and general attitude... The same goes for Sunlighter, and everyone else, of course.
So, to an extent, you all expressed your dislike for Sunlighter's attitude and personality, rather than her modding capabilities.
SOME of you were objective enough to make a difference between her attitude and personality and her work. Based on what those few have said, yes, I can objectively conclude that in some ways Sunlighter is partially unfit to be a mod.
But, I must stress two things:
1. "Evidence" is needed. We need to be fair people.
2. If it doesn't interfere with her mod duties, how is her attitude and personality relevant?
I don't, in no way at all, agree with her that, for example, the new Lara Croft is fat. However, I don't make a NEEDLESS FUSS about it. Her opinion, my opinion. Sunlighter likes to be blunt and she likes to sometimes disregard other peoples opinions and thoughts. Her loss, our loss, her gain, our gain...
I like Sunlighter because she is, for me, unique, interesting, fun and just plain entertaining. I don't go berserk if she tells me that a model I like is unattractive, a Tekken character I like is uncool or if she doesn't reply enthusiastically to my posts in her thread.
You people seem to be too affected by this forum, the happenings here and the people here. For me, it is JUST a forum. It CANNOT compare and have the same relevance as real life does. I guess we see this differently, which is O.K.
In conclusion, regarding Sunlighter, I think that she objectively has to change a few things in her demeanor, regarding modship. I don't think that she needs to be demoded and whatnot; I still like her and she is still one of my favorite people on this forum. On the other side, you guys seem to be a tad too biased in your judging of her. Leave her opinions be.
She thinks that Julia is "fugly"? She doesn't care that you think otherwise?
It is HER RIGHT.
You use YOUR RIGHT and disagree with her and ignore her. Problem fixed.
