The New Era
 
So, it is safe to say that a new era has unofficially begun. For quite some time there have been negociations between mods, David and General about buying the forum. To spare you all lots of time, it simply comes down to one discussion. General wants 100% ownership of the forum whereas David likes to keep hold of some technical aspects on vBulletin intranet and have his 'share' of the forum.

Finally, we have come to an understanding of the price. Which has been determined on 0,32 euro for every 100 posts made. General will buy 33,3% of the forum shares at first with the possibility to buy it outright on 1 september 2016. Now, like in any other deal there has to be made certain promises to show you are worthy of buying it the fully 100%. So, below you find a list of a few things which will effect any of us:
  • A match timer on the homepage
  • YouTube, Vibe and Twitter integration
  • A new management (democracy)
  • A donate option
  • Commerce intentions
  • Fix bugs like accents
  • R&B on Social Media - Facebook and Twitter
  • Transparency to forum members
  • Gifts based on forum income from commerce and the donate option (free new authentic home/away/third jersey for SAPL winner)
  • Other innovations

If General is willing to buy by outright, he has to fulfill any of these appointments aside from 'Other innovations'. This will be evaluated one week before 1 september 2016.

Meanwhile, i took it upon myself to set up the headhunt process - finding suitable new moderators. The following Moderators will remain in the management: Sven, Necro, ulladullau and AC_Wesley. Based on General's wish of introducing a mod voting system (democracy), I've decided to recruit 3 new moderators. Making it 7 total so that there never will exist a draw in votes. Your area does not affect the selection, although I want one moderator coming from Oceania as we already have one from Asia, North America, South America and Europe.

How to apply
Below you will read 3 cases that a moderator encounters on a regular basis. Read them and answer how you would act in that situation. You can use every option only once.

The options: A ban (duration not specificated), a final warning over PM and permaban

Case A
An unnamed member from Ohio living on sesame street has been harassing other members with swear words who badmouth Nocerino. It occurs more often that this member flames people but this is his first time in a long while. What option do you choose?

Case B
A new member has been posting normally but with subtle hints of commerce purposes. What do you do?

Case C
You often get reported posts. You open the reported post and notice every time the post isn't problematic. What do you do?

You are free to apply yourself. Recommendations are allowed in the Mod recommendations thread. Members who reason their decisions to the front of the line. Also motivating your application is a plus.

Best of luck,
Wesley

Wtf is this. Who the fuck is General?

Mr Delicious 02-10-2015 21:36

Case A has me in tears :lol::lol:

MilanMB 02-10-2015 21:40

You should have had my recent case as an example. Very poorly managed by current management. :D :D

MilanMB 02-10-2015 21:43

If general buys the forum, he'll definitely make pubes a mod, just to fuck with his mind.

I'll become a mod as well. But that's because he's always wanted me to work under him no/homo.

derpu 02-10-2015 21:48

The correct answer is to ban everyone on each case, including the so called victim. Mods dont play by the rules, fuck picking option only once.

Burlesqoni 02-10-2015 21:53

First order of the new democracy: ethnic cleansing of barca fans, and anyone who watches monster trucks.

All of those belonging to the anime thread will hereby be named the labour force, no pay involved.

LemonCookies 02-10-2015 21:54

Yes, use me as a test case where everyone will choose to perma-ban me. This forum will stay a joke so long as moderators don't follow the rules and can't be bothered to enforce them.

Unless the moderators', or someone like me or anyone else who might like to become a moderator, behavior changes immediately, then the forum is still in a bad place. If I'm punished for trolling, then mods can't troll themselves without punishment, nor can there be a long list of rules that mods don't follow, or members can't post according to.

To play the game, A and C should both be warnings, as I read them. B should be a permaban, but I'm not really sure what exactly B refers to. Not being able to use each option more than once, I think, shows why this system is complete shit.

You really could have just shortened this in one sentence saying "I want to be mod" instead of writing paragraphs

LemonCookies 02-10-2015 22:14

I don't really want to work with Weasley or Necro who have bullshit banned me essentially every time. Seems like General just wants his powertrip now.

You'd sooner get mod status than me because General has a hard on for you, pubes.

General 02-10-2015 23:57

Please post your responses to the scenarios listed above.

We will be selecting 3 new mods

Mr. Milanista 03-10-2015 00:01

Finally I may have a chance of becoming a mod. Glorious times

AndreiX 03-10-2015 00:06

I'm fighting hard against the urge to report the original post for "You often get reported posts. You open the reported post and notice every time the post isn't problematic. What do you do?"

would that be cheating ?

LemonCookies 03-10-2015 00:06

Dunno how many active members there are that won't abuse their powers.

Nestafan for mod :o

A. Ban his friends. Make him cry, then ban him too. Remove his ban after two days, wait two weeks, then ban him again. Rinse and repeat.

B. Confine him to the wrestling thread. And ban all who promote his marketing.

C. Ban the ones reporting posts for wasting your time. And for being pussies.

Choose one from the old guard like MilanMB, Leaf, Joyrider, etc...

Then a poster like Nutella, Nestafan, etc...

And then Derps.

I think that's a good mix of temperament for mods there.

So do I respond to each of these 3 cases with "Do nothing" if i wanted to apply for a moderator position? Or does General want moderators that actually perform duties in comparison to the moderators we have now?

Serious question is serious because right now, the forum, the threads, the moderators leave so much to be desired.

I vote Burlesqoni for the new owner. because these responses are too good for the current forum.

Serious talk is serious.

General 03-10-2015 06:49

Please do your best to answer the 4 scenarios

In addition, I'm looking forward to upgrading the forum.

A Milan forum should have the top of the line in technology and amenities

necromancer 03-10-2015 08:13

Derp for mod :thumbsup:
