    After a thread where a little girl (maybe) asked for e-mail buddies, and posted her e-mail address, i think we should have a list of mods that are online, so we can hasten the deletion of such stuff.

    If someone is doing stuff like this, we could contact the mod online, and have him alerted immediately.

    What do you think the 'Alert Moderator' button does?

    Is that Gerk, as in Gerkin ??

    I alerted the first post, and the post with the e-mail address. The fact that you think a PM would've helped proves that alerts are not a surefire way to reach you.



    In the instance this thread refers to, a (supposedly) 16 year old girl asks for e-mail buddies, then when i (as a joke) post my e-mail addy as

    rideurrancidcorpsewhileimakeurmotherwatchonwebcam (@hotmail.com)

    She/he gave up xer yahoo address online.

    My suggestion is just to help stop things like this from running on too long, a "PM all mods" option would be equally useful, but i bet yous would soon tire of the sietse messages.

    This suggestion is supposed to be constructive bro.

    I don't think PM'ng me would have helped, since I wasn't online. I'm just hurt that you didn't.

    If there were a 'counter' that said a mod was online, but had posted in the forums and made a few moves and went back to reading War and Peace what now? Would we be mad that a mod online didn't do something?

    I see you alerted a post, and it was removed. I think that's enough.

    Making sure the green dot system is active with mods should do the trick. Look mate :If the mod does nothing, that's his choice, but situations like that are too creepy for my tastes......That's all.

    I'd prefer a "super creepy" button for members. If members abused their "super creepy" button they would lose their "super creepy" privileges.

    Umm, you do realise this is a public forum, yes? Mods don't get paid, they just do it for fame or something. What makes you think they're at your beck and call for emergencies?

    Why don't we add an "alert Huck!" button, next to "alert moderator"?

    Sometimes, when there's no lights flashing they get bored and take down one of the primary SQL database servers and hook it up to host a variety of online multiplayer games.

    Actually, each mod strips down and climbs into a "Mod Pod©" when they are actively moderating the forums. The Mod Pod plugs into the USB port of a computer, and as the door is closed electrodes touch off to 27 separate locations on the body. As alerts come in, electrical shocks are sent to various locations on the moderator's body depending on severity of the alert.

    Even still, it would be hard to know if a Mod was in the Mod Pod when you alerted something, since none of the mods really like to stay in the pod for any long amount of time... just minutes in most cases.
