Mod-a-Day Program
After listening to your suggestions about self-moderation, we've decided to try something new. Basically, we will give a user with a reasonable record mod privileges for one day to help keep order in the forum. We hope this will prevent any one person from going crazy with power, as it will only be for 24 hours. If you're interested, please post here.

Doesn't this ruin the whole keeping mod privileges secret thing?

@ghug

Good question. The Rent-a-Mods will only have mod access to the forum.

What do you mean by "keep order in the forum"? Are we talking just locking threads with cheating accusations or are there other issues of order that are to be addressed?

@spy

Another good question!

During the trial period, we'll only have Rent-a-Mods help with cheating accusations. The goal, of course, is to help with overall censorship for threads that the community at large finds offensive.

I'd volunteer, I'd like to help out. As long as there are clear guidelines and just manual labour, such as locking cheating accusation threads and those with blatant hate speech. But are you sure this will lessen the workload? It takes a long time for a mod to learn the community enough to be able to draw the line fairly well, and all mod decisions are based on judgment. Since you're suggesting a long line of inexperienced mods, there will almost certainly be mistakes made, and there is a clear risk that people, with the best intentions, will piss off someone and create a shitstorm that you will have to defend. I like the idea, democratising the power somewhat by distributing it fairly in small doses, it reminds me of ancient Greece. But it would have to be carefully managed.

So the mod a day can silence, but not ban? But what if the power goes to their head? Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Can their silences be for more than 24 hours? Will someone monitor their exercising of the power?

It's not April Fools where I am for another 13 minutes, so I'm going to assume it's not.

With that said, I'll volunteer.

Um, this is an April Fools joke. It was posted after midnight Eastern as it is now 2:49 AM

I'm fooled over and over again, every April 1. It's always in the middle of a term, when I'm happy if I know what month it is. Also, fuck Sweden. It's April now and I still can't sleep with my window open without dying from frostbite? And I even sleep during the day...

Azawad
Just curious if anyone here has any thought on the situation in northern Mali/Azawad. It seems extremely unlikely to me that 2,000 ECOWAS troops are going to be able to fight the Tuaregs unless the MNLA splits, and I haven't really heard anything indicating that that's going to happen. At the same time, all of this seems to be happening kind of quickly. Are they prepared to set up a government?

Have you ever made a horrible decision and not realized it until after you've done it?
Well I have. In fact, there are only two things in this life that I've done that were incredibly stupid. The first is not putting oil in my vehicle until the engine blew when I was a kid. The second was un-muting Krellin. Not sure why this guy hasn't been banned yet but, like the damage to my motor, ability to not hate idiots will never be fixed again.
