Honestly, not really in agreement on this one.
"to our most active, trust worthy and loved people on the site site, PB10 and SF. "
Lol, speed was just out for quite a while now and you count it under "most active?" Also, thank you for the indirect slap in the face to the current mods, especially when trachy is around in the afternoon, and Will and I take the evenings. :D Will is out because of a broken computer, and he will have it replaced pretty soon, so that's why he hasn't been as active.
"For example tournements, Wisdom in all aspects of pokemon and all the brilliant suggestions and hospitality they have provided so many users. "
If memory serves, Trachy was the first to develop tournaments here, and others just took on the burden for him, and by "burden" I mean asking to make a meta post.
"The site will be cleaner and a better place, you said it yourself pokemaster.
We need more mods as the site gets bigger and better we will manage to round up some more trolls and spammers, and who else can ban and we need them dealt with quick and fuss free. "
The main issue that concerns me in this is giving out too much power. When 1) the number of mods outnumber that of the experts and editors, that seems a bit top-heavy in what is supposed to be an ascending hierarchy. If everyone has power, then nobody does. I
t doesn't take a ton of effort to ban people, and most people aren't around during morning hours because everyone is at school, since a pokemon website targets mostly schoolage kids (from experience, the younger ones are the ones that cause the most issues, so any odd stragglers aren't an issue for spamming and stuff in most cases)
I understand that time zones can play a factor, but that merely staggers the people and separates them even more, so you can get one or two people during morning hours, but they have nobody there to enjoy their spam. We haven't run into any serious issues with people, and haven't been overrun with crap lately, so I don't see it as a necessity.
None of this is to try and discredit either Pb10 or Speed, but I do not see a need to be political about this and raise requests to pokemaster for people and make an indirect election for things. Good to know people think the mods are doing a good job if we apparently need two more. :/
If anything, I think the biggest issues on the site stem from too many people trying to do things at once, indirect modding, and being overly uptight over trivial matters. It's nice to have a small knit website, but not if it means attacking every person that presents a disagreement to the site, a recent example being the issue with Aggron 358.
The point security deal also seems to bring on trouble. Calling out cheaters is fine, but not when it becomes the Salem Witch Trials and everybody is at ends with each other. Just my take on it. Love it or leave it.
