@GREE - Can this thread be sticky for a while?

This poll has been created due to the popularity of my previous thread Forum Moderators:
http://www.funzio.com/forum/showthread.php?56403-Forum-Moderators

All names in the poll have been voted for by users of this forum.

With the volume of nominations and the attention from GREE staff it is imperative that this poll is taken seriously by all forum users.

Do not vote for every name in the poll as this will not give a clear indication of whom would satisfy the role adequately.


Remember: This is NOT a popularity contest. This is a vote for the most helpful members of this community whom would do the best for the community.

Sorry Dirt road my two votes were already in when I realized you were not on the list you would have been a fine addition :)

Dirt road Joe has made some fine contributions to the forums :)

Here's where a good Moderator would shine.

Weekends and odd hours. Because it's apparent there are minimal posts from Admin or others during these times.

So, forum, keep the votes coming.

I am not biased just as long as your in Jonny ! we need your wit, humour and firm handling of certain situations, also Gambit will make a good balance and between you both i am confident that all facets and areas will be covered but you can always call on others TempusDA, Dirt Road Joe, AK and the rest...use me as last though !

Would like to thank people for there support.

Jonny and Ratma for thier reliably ever present humor can almost guarantee when I see Jonny or ratma at the end of a post it will be worth taking a look at.

Deffinately Call on me but make sure you call on Ratma first he's got the Choppa after all :) I want the room with the never ending Latte Machine.

Everyone knows that Gambit is a cheater, right?

He was caught, in a big way, cheating in MW around December last year. There was a whole fake trial and everything since he got caught when he didn't think he would.

He's also a royal dbag. What kind of person threatens someone over the net? :rolleyes: Anyway, don't vote for that guy, he's a loose cannon and a terrible human being.

A sampling of PMs he's sent me:

Of course i'm aware in everything i post, i'm a grown ass ****ing man & you should watch yourself...

Dude, call it whatever you want. Where's your proof? A person is innocent until proven guilty in the court of Law. If i did it, Gree should have banned my account & stop me from playing the MW game apps.

It doesn't matter to me if they vote or not. I have RL to take care of than you. Find a RL job, do something for your life, get out of the house dude & earn some money than trying to mess with people here...

please take your rant elsewhere.

Try to keep the forums TOS in mind and take your personal vendetta back to MW.



Edit: I am not defending said player, simply pointing out this is not the place for this discussion. Start a new thread if this is something you want to discuss.

If GREE didn't find him guilty (the trial), then he's a free man (the sentence). This shouldn't be about assumptions and rumors, and he's also a top candidate. :)

If jonny becomes the moderator, then I call dibs on being the arch-nemesis. There is no vote for that, as I called dibs.

06-20-2013, 12:38 PM
Great solution again Gree! Ban the ones that talk about hackers.

Im sorry to say but banning Tempus is beyond me. The forum gives out signals to you Gree to make the game better. And this is how you repay them?

E-I
06-20-2013, 12:40 PM
I voted for all. Gree needs some customer input or there is going to be a huge exodus soon. Hopefully this is the first step.

The_Legend_Shall_Live_On
06-20-2013, 07:29 PM
I didn't see any of you attempt to moderate the company bashing that's been happening today. And frankly I don't care if majority feel that they are correct in publicly harassing and bashing Gree, and even more so it doesn't matter if they are right.

The Forum here has guidelines. If not one single moderator being voted for came out to try and settle the blatant violations that just happened today in other threads, even when CJ stayed on answering questions right away, or shortly after one was posed, why are we even voting for someone to be a moderator from the members?

The insistent complaints, the rabble rousing and attempts to get people on the disgruntled side, the blatant crap that was happening just in the last 36 hours, is the reason moderators are even supposed to be here. They are supposed to get the forum back in shape and kept within the guidelines. Or is this really just another political caucus race for a robe of authority and a title of power and then sit back and gloat?

I'm not a fan of the switcheroo that Gree just pulled. Two, you are correct in my lack of public outspokeness, but I hold no authority at this time to delete posts, or feel like I'm a superpower. But, I will say this (and this is how I acted as an NCO in the military): Vent, talk, rant, rave...I'll let you get it out any way you want. Childish or adult-like. But, the moment you come at me (in this situation, noone actually called names); done. Lock it up and you're spiel is over, my turn and I won't treat you like my friend.

I'm going to have to debate with you over this one, Jonny.

At the time that I am writing this, you have 39 votes to be this forum's moderator. That means, to a greater or lesser degree, you do have some power in this forum. It does mean people will listen to you to some degree. It also means that, therefore, you are setting an example of what is correct conduct in this forum.

While I do agree with you about your approach to handling someone on an individual basis, this is a public forum. That means it is no longer on an individual basis. When you are handling one person in front of you, let them rant and get crap off of their chest. More often than not, they will settle down, talk and it is done.

But if you had three people in front of you, one was getting a whole lot of venting off their chest and then started getting the other two, through their ranting, to also start in on it, you wouldn't just sit there and let all three people in front of you get riled up. It would be unacceptable and would put a stop to it. OR you would pull the one person aside and say, "Ok - let it out," and then bring that person back.

But to the point, you do hold some power. Or no one would vote for you.

Very well put and I can see the validity in your points.

I'd like to respond further (and will later) but it's been a very rough day for me with losing a family member early to set the outcome of my entire day and then school/work. It's taxing. And, while I have a direct link to the General Section on my first page of Apps, I've read and read and stayed updated albeit with minimal support for ceasing today's behavior and for that; I'm sorry.

But, I'll be better tomorrow and will own upto the respect many of you have voted for in me with the polls.

Until tomorrow then.

Gree unban Tempus!

He has been great in helping players out. He tried to make the game better. Helping you see the issues we encounter.
But instead of listening to him, you perma ban him for saying things you dont want to hear. Why does this remind me of my kids?

No, no it doesn't. What he has is people wanting him to be moderator. Until GREE officially makes him a moderator, he is still just an unwashed mass like the rest of us and should be treated the same. No one in this poll should be called out for not taking action simply because they want to be a moderator any more than someone who wants to be a cop, and has the support of his friends and family to become a cop, should be called out for not trying to stop a bank robbery in an attempt to prove his commitment to upholding the law. It's not like any of these folks put their name on the ballot, as they were nominated by others.

Until he, or anyone else, becomes a moderator in an official capacity, they should not be expected to act like something they are not. Besides, considering that several of these candidates have quite a few votes, it means they have already proven their commitment.

06-21-2013, 06:09 PM
Thank you all for the support and thanks to Gree for reconsidering.

To be fair I will keep from posting til the 27th as was originally intended out of respect for the rules just wanted to come in and say thank you.

I will see you all on the 27th

I cant't tell you how much it meant to me and made my day all the love shown.

06-21-2013, 06:24 PM
Great to have Tempus back. But I wouldn't hate on Gree too much, lets remember if this was a game like Halo the developers wouldn't even bother listening to a message board like this and would probably only show these comments a finger that is next to the index.
