I'm I'm sorry to say, but I really don't think anyone qualifies to become a moderator. It can't be that painless, when there's a troller, you ban him. It has to be WAY more complex than that. There no way any 15 year would be able to do a job like this. Becoming one of the helpers of Imgflip requires dignity and responsibility, asking to be a moderator, well, I'm probably going to be mauled for saying this, is quite immature. If you are really sure that you have been doing everything right and you deserve to be a great moderator, acuity12 or one of the moderators will most likely contact you. I feel that most of us are not yet ready to take on the leadership of a tactual moderator. Asking to be a moderator shows that you still not ready to take control. Don't internet punch me for this mate, xD.

I rarely do text comments, but I will chime in on this one. I agree with Daniel898 on this. Being a moderator is not about how often you are on this site or how many memes you make in a week. This site is point and rank driven, so just taking the top users and giving them mod privileges is not really a good idea, in fact it’s a BAD idea. Some people take this site way too seriously, and giving the most frequent users the ability to moderate the content of the site will eventually lead to them driving their own agendas and memes, sorry but it’s true. I’ve seen it happen before, on countless forums and message boards, it’s just the human way. Even in this thread people are saying things like, I want to be a mod so I can scare this guy, or ban that guy, or kick this guy’s ass, completely wrong mind set.
Now is there a troll problem, yes and no. Sites like these will always attract fools looking to get a rise out of people. But you already have the power to control that without MOD privileges, just don’t feed them. Yes that’s right, stop feeding the trolls and they will go away. I see you guys time and time again fall for their crap, just ignore them, you can’t threaten or scare, or shame them into leaving, so exercise your ability to not respond to a stranger on the internet, it’s surprisingly easy. Most don’t last more then a what, a day or two, if that? The MODS here are more active then you know, look how fast Sphinx and Acuity popped up in this thread, not posting regular memes does not equal non activity. That said I enjoy this site, it’s my daily chuckle, and I hope the changes Acuity mentioned will make it even better. Just my opinion.

Yes. I can't believe I read your whole post and you read mine. Well, there goes to book I was about the read.

First of all, if you guys become mods, Philip Bachta and Downvote will be wiped off the face if Imgflip. If someone makes you all of you angry, they get banned too. It's just not fair. These trollers and spammers balance Imgflip, the current moderators that take care of things is a little bit slow, to be honest. But if there's 5 more moderators, these guy won't even be on Imgflip for more than 30 minutes. If you get rid of them, it will be kind of boring. Have you seen a game without trollers? My guess is obviously no.

I'm not say you guys can't be mods. I see a lot of potential in every one of you :) I'm saying that you guys are not quite ready to take on the leadership. Maybe in a several months you will fulfil your dream. :D

I agree on what you said about how the trolls balance Imgflip. Life without trolls would be boring. However, porn spammers deserve to be banned. Recently we had a ton of spammers going off at once, and there have been several posts targeting Kanaloa with redhead porn. There are some trolls who should be kept because they give us entertainment, yes, but there are others who I am sick of seeing. I have, over the past week or two, sent multiple feedbacks about some users. It was only until the most recent--and, I'll admit, most annoyed--feedback that I think most or all of them have been banned.
I just think that even something like a user with enough flags and downvotes will be banned automatically would help.

Yeah, trolls, meh, every site has them, but it's the porn spammers I'm on about. I agree, THOSE should be banned.

That definitely opened my eyes quite a bit more. And maybe you're right; maybe we don't deserve mods, or maybe we'd get up and over our heads and start a massacre. So although mods would be nice, we don't really NEED them.

If you haven't noticed, our imgflip community has plowed through troll after troll after troll! We were able to knock them back and forth with our anti-troll users before the mods even SAW them. We kick ass! We always do! There has not been a single troll that we fought that didn't get banned. I'm not saying that I don't want MOD privileges, it would still be nice, but in all honesty, we don't need them!

Once again, I refer to an excerpt famous Imgflip Poem...
"...if ever again we come across those spammers,
we'll come down on them, like mother f**king lightning hammers!"

Us users as a team is stronger than a mod. Even though we can't actually ban, we give them a good whooping and show them who's boss. We are imgflip. We will NOT let those stupid trolls take over our site.

(Frankly, I'm rather addicted.) I am, in fact, NOT a nobody outside of imgflip. I don't have a ton of friends, but then again I don't need a ton of friends. I've got 3 or 4 close friends and that's good enough for me.

Your and Daniel also have a great point but the other people who want to be MODS have a good point also.
Like you said, if we want to become MODS we need a lot of training... (cuz if you are a MOD you can accidentally do things such as ban a great user by accident or reasons like that which is not good. Then I guess we need training for this...)

reply
1 up, 1 reply
You definitely have a very good point there. However, i do have to say, none of us here have really been begging to be made mods. We were simply discussing how having a few more moderators on this site would dramatically cut down on spam, and a few suggestions were made as to who those could be. I recognize, as I'm sure everyone else does, that being a mod is a huge responsibility, and as such only people who can be trusted absolutely would be chosen. I think you made a good point, and I'm not attacking you, I'm just chiming in with my two cents. :)
reply
1 up
Thank goodness. I finally found your comment. There's at least 250 comments on this meme.

That is true. I'm not saying you're begging. As I've said before, I feel that none of us are quite ready at the moment. Arguing with someone about something as little as trolling looks preposterous to me. You haven't seen any many moderators argue with trollers/spammers before have you? Talking back to them is just as unsophisticated. *shrugs arms* Making memes about how many points you got in a day, night, bla bla blah. You've never seen it from a real moderator. Maybe after a couple months, Clockwork, you and your friends can become helpers of Imgflip :)

Don't argue with those trollers, ignore them, then report them. Even acuity12 said it before. Don't engage in a conversation, you're just taking the bait.

reply

I'll tell him, but you must do me a favor.

Create regular memes, like BLB, or Philosopher. Don't make memes that are negative toward other users. You have to be getting bored about arguing with MemeMaker2 and MemeMaker619 for a couple months. Say you're sorry that you advertised, never do it again, and maybe your whole Imgflip career will be better. Do this for a couple weeks, if you still see a lot of hate, you can go back to your own ways. These are your crossroads, Philip Bachta, you must decide on what you must do.

More mods would definitely help with spammers and trolls. Give it to a few really active and trustworthy users, they'd be able to find and remove most of them before they became a problem.

No that's a bad idea. Trollers will make multiple accounts, and they can either flood mods with flag notices if it works like that, or people's comments will be taken down due to too many flags if it works like that.

I was saying if it gets too many flags then it will automatically deleted. But you have a great point.
reply

What if comments only get the attention of moderators after a certain number of flags? I mean, sure, one troll can flag every comment on a meme once, but I don't think there will be several trolls all taking down several comments as much as there will be several good users targeting one troll. And then, when the moderators are notified, they can review the comment and be the final judge on it.

If any Mods or Admins happen to be reading this, please listen to what I have to say: if you guys would just promote all us users who are very active on this website (MemeMaker, InfernoKid, myself, corbinium, etc.) to Mods, then that would really help stop all the spamming before it begins. Instead of having to wait to one of you guys to finally get around to deleting all the spam/troll accounts going around, why not promote us active users to Mods so we can stop the accounts when we see them? If you guys did this, then the amount of spam posts would be reduced DRASTICALLY. Myself and several other users agree with this idea. It really would be a huge step in getting rid of the troll accounts. Plus, it would make things easier on the already existing Mods/Admins. It really would help this website out greatly.

Mod the users who are always active? How about the users who are always active and responsible at the same time? Because we may ban somebody for the wrong reasons :/

I raise a question. I don't think it's a secret, but Entertainer himself had reposted before (a good percent of his stuff is repost). If you guys whom where decided earlier for mod status, what would you do about him?
reply
1 up, 3 replies
I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I think that me, Kanaloa, Snap006, MemeMaker2, and possibly Sidrel_C should become mods. Sidrel because he/she has helped fight back alot, MemeMaker for the same reason, and me, Kanaloa, and Snap006 because we've been here the longest.

There should be 4-10 more mods
1. corbinium11 (you)
2. Snap006
3. Pitty
4. XenusianSoldier

Just my opinion.
reply
3 ups, 6 replies
I agree with most of that. But prob not Pitty, she's been really inactive lately.
Here's who I vote.

1. corbinium11 (me)
2. Snap006
3. Kanaloa
4. Pink_Katto (You should have seen her fight that "oooooohhhhh" guy!)
5. XenusianSoldier
6. InfernoKid-Sandstorm
7. Sidrel_C
8. TheMemeMaker2 (I'm a bit concerned about you, seeing that you hold grudges against several users on here. We don't want to be bias.)
For the record, I think those I just listed are the only ones that deserve to be Mods. I really am concerned that one of us will fight with a user and things will go south and we'll abuse our privileges.

If we want to ban someone that HAS OVER 1000 POINTS, then we will hold a "meeting" where majority wins. If they are below 1000 and are obviously trolling then they can be banned with no questions asked.

I would say up it to over like 3000 for a meeting to be required. Because 1000 points is about 1 meme making it to page 5 which isn't extrememly hard.

Yes! If any of us got promoted to Mod, then we would have to be sure not to abuse "power" or use it in the wrong way; it could potentially cause more problems then there were before if people became immature with their privileges.

I'm flattered, but I'm not cut out for it. I'm only on here when things are slow at work so if things were to pick up, I wouldn't be on here too much. That and I have a 1 year old that I try to spend as much time with really eats into my time. I think I'm just best at going off on trolls as a kind of deterrent.

Do you mean they're not posting? That doesn't mean they aren't logged on and monitoring. IMHO, a MOD should keep themselves out of the action so that they can maintain a balanced outlook on the behavior of everyone else. If a MOD becomes too much of a meme maker, the judiciousness of their decisions would be impacted and justice would be questionable and chaos would reign. That's just my two cents worth. Thank you for your time. :)

That's a valid point, but I believe that anyone chosen to be a moderator would be trustworthy enough that they wouldn't abuse their power to get an advantage. Besides, even if one person did, they would be stripped of their power by the other mods.

Also, can anyone give me a link to the ups and downs of this site? Thank you in advance?

Your memes were not spammed. They were just bad. Look, not to troll you bro, but when all of your memes are about the topic of "memes" it gets unoriginal fast. Try being more topical ... read a newspaper, or think outside the box a bit. Seriously, not tryin to piss you off, just tryin' to be constructive.
