    Question Moderator's

    How does one become a moderator?
    Are they working for EI?
    Is it possible they'll favour certain users?

    If certain users cry enough and even phone in they get a result. It's a form of censorship so certain posters get their own way.

    How does one become a moderator???

    Today?.. I dont know.. But allow me to give you a bit of history. Back in 2006/2007 as I remember it there was only one. A feisty lady called Patricia. Then the lovely Nicole joined in to help out. Bless her.... Then the boards got busier and we saw the introduction of "poster" mods.. Ninebythree, Highwayman, Carlos, Tom Rambo, QPH etc... But threads were getting busier, and fights were becoming too frequent, and there was a mini revolt against the "management". There even was a national day of "no posting" put forward (I think??)..... it failed (again, I think)... But "Management" seemed to have listened. So there was an on-line request for new mods.... "the lads" type of mods.

    Dr. Love and Benin were inaugurated. Benin was the joker everyone liked, Doc was in every thread and was just.. sound. So peace came back to greenland..

    Then 2010 something happened... The Samlad era.... Den Den Den Dennnn..... For once there was the "I take no shit" type mod... and bannings were rampant. Many fell victim to the harsh hammer of Herr Samlad, and ran away... well, somewhere else..(hey you guys...). Then other mod names seemed to pop up in welcoming threads without warning.. "Welcome Martin Mod" etc etc..... Boards are quite active now... Escorts have joined in bigger numbers than ever... This is the good time...

    Then... they decided a total and utter rehash (fuck up) is required. Floki is brought in as understudy to Samlad in preparation for "The new EI". All old mods disappear, leaving a brand new team .. & Floki. Bit of a struggle for the new lads at the start, things could get testy at times....There were no night-time mods, great night fights. People are getting annoyed. Then they bring in LuckyLu. The little darling who talked to everybody and answered every thread. Just the tonic required..... Then they brought in night-time mods. Peeps seem happy again.

    So here we are now...

    Its a certain crowd on here patting one another on the back and boosting each others posts and telling who to reply to or not.
    School yard stuff really.

    I think this is a very good summary of what has happened.

    Just to clarify, if you never have been informed, Samlad and Nicole have decided to move onto the next chapter with their lives and careers.
    We miss them both, but although their status has "banned user" in it, this is not a good reflection on what has happened.
    When we close accounts, we need to chose the option "banned user", this will be changed in few weeks time, so that it is clearer.

    Patricia is still within the company, however far too busy to moderate the forums, she answers her PMs when it is possible.

    Floki is doing great job and is widely liked amongst everyone, he is also the door between the new and old.
    Totally adorable. Sarky but harmless.

    Jorge has not been mentioned, but I need to mention him here as he is just one big cutey, who has got a giant heart.
    To be honest they both do.

    As for myself, I am on a mission and a learning curve at the same time.
    I hope I can fill in my predecessors' shoes, but you know it is a very difficult task, as they were dearly loved and respected among the forums.
    I can only do my best, try to listen and learn.

    Yes, we have introduced the night time mods, they are not fully trained in all mods' duties, as they also share Advertising Team duties over night.
    Which means, some of the issued brought overnight might be placed on hold, threads temporarily removed / hidden / closed and the decisions might be left to us, the day time mods.

    I am not sure about new community mods recruited within the users, this is something the Management have put on hold for now.
    Of course we get to know you all here, more or less, as much as we can, mainly form your posts, actions and your general attitude towards other users and mods.
    Although we do not do it now, let's not say never.

    I will keep you up to date with any changes made in the future.

    Recruiting community mods from the users would be a terrible idea in my opinion. Best to keep it on hold for a long time. Enjoy your break Lu.
