Bonus points for anyone who got that one.

Did you mean "circle jerk of life"? Was this a trick question? Was there a XXX version of the 'Lion King' off-broadway?

i assumed they asked permission and it was granted. i find the other kind do get re banned when they become outed.

OK so I just noticed that I have a whole bunch of new buttons and functions in MC now... Which I assume came with this honored title. Aright, that's cool. But what exactly am I supposed to do here - do I have mod responsibilities, or am I meant to use these only in my threads? Maybe a little clarification fornthe newly anointed on what our duties are, and how these things work could help set us on the right path? Thanks guys

Jesus christ. You still haven't told them what to do with their new titles and powers yet? Here's a good sign that you're too busy and need help: you're too busy to tell the people that you've brought on to help you how to actually help you.

i am pretty sure that technically you can use your powers to weed shit out of all of MC, but at this point you are expected to do really in your threads. you are not expected, and possibly not supposed to, act as a general moderator for MC.

however, i doubt you will catch hell from fok or j if you were to delete a derailing post in one of the new, solid, and useful MC threads if the OP was not around, and you felt the need to nip a derailment in the bud. but that is just my guess.

I think they only work in threads started by other D-Hs. I would use them as I saw fit in my own threads, but since I don't start many I am much more careful in others (which are only manton's at the moment). I only use it to clean up obvious, off-topic junk comments or OT stuff that looks like it would start an argumentative thread derail. I would not use it for on topic criticism or to take sides in an argument. Basically, if it is not my thread, I will only delete stuff that looks like an obvious, no-brainer decision.

Well it literally just happened so it's not like anyone is behind the ball or anything. I think I have a general idea of what I'm supposed to do, but some clarification is always helpful

IS, dopey - thanks.

You have to edit out content you don't like with pictures of delicious espresso.

I need one of the newly made special flowers to start a thread in General as I think this thread will need moderation. Title of the thread should be something like, "Need Advice? Ask The Panel." The goal of the thread is to facilitate career, relationship, and general life questions. I've noticed that this type of advice is sought throughout the forum and a dedicated thread makes sense, IMO. I do not want to start it up as it would also become rife with extraneous, OT, and generally stupid posts. I think Dougie and FLMM are DH in here? Why don't one of you start it?

I'm dubious about my dubiously honored status. I have none of these cool gimmicks that everybody else has. No new buttons or powers or anything. frown.gif

It only works in certain forums and possibly in certain threads started by other DH, and I think your'e mostly supposed to use it in your own threads. You might be restricted to MC threads or CE, or maybe you got both.

that would be a great thread. i would like to see one take off. douglas tried something similar, but maybe your topic idea/thread title would work better.

have you tried signing out, clearing your cashe and cookies, and signing back it? and like baron said, it might be only MC. maybe they are playing a cruel joke on you?
post #10303 of 14830
Correct, I-S. It seems to work in all of MC now. I am not sure that was always true, but it certainly is now. My marching orders, which I have given myself, is to use it only to clean out obvious OT thread derail stuff that craps up a content focused thread (not unlike stuff I post myself, but I will leave others to clean those out since I like my own posts).

I'm not a DH, I'm a mod, but from a technical standpoint DH powers are a subset of mod powers, so I am empowered to make a thread like Piob suggests. It's a good idea. I will do it.

However, all should note that DHs have much freer reign to edit or delete posts in their own threads. Deleting as a DH is much different than deleting as a mod.

Mods moderate based on rules (no nudity, no spam, no swearing in thread titles) and flagrant trolling/asshattery that usually is repeated, obvious, noted by many members, and typically discussed amongst the mods. The touch is very light, per the wisdom of j and Fok. And edited/deleted posts are virtually always supposed to be addressed in a PM to the offender.

DHs can just do as they see fit for the benefit of their thread.

PS Rambo, calm down, people are listening, obviously it's getting better already, it will be ok.

Doug, I think that if you start the thread with an OP stating the thread will be heavily moderated you will be fine. Then just weed out as you see fit.
