Wouldn't it be more fair for the people of GAG to choose who the mods are? There are many overly-sensitive mods on this site that hide questions and opinions just because they find it offensive to THEM.
We all have an idea of who those mods are, and I personally don't want someone that gets offended by the slightest thing, to be a mod, cause they will end up hiding every single thing, as they already do. That added to the fact that they have a quota they have to meet, makes things even worse.
Plus, we have dozens of mods that we don't even need.
So, do you think GAG should let us choose who becomes mod? Let the majority decide.
I've been asked twice to become a mod, so I don't know exactly what their criteria is xD
- Yes, we should choose58%(18)55%(30)Vote50%(12)
- No, we should let the admins choose42%(13)45%(25)Vote50%(12)

@AleDeEurope why did you decline if you would like to see things "better"? It doesn't matter who the moderators are, they're still going to be human. Hell, there are a couple of super/uber mods that have me blocked. LOL - what does that say about personal views?
Anyway, the number of posts that you report, and the success ratio of those reports are the main criteria. Which means, yours must have been pretty good.
Also, once in a while, a moderator has their mod status revoked other for poor community behavior, or unsatisfactory success ratios. I would hope that if one (or some) are "abusing their power" - that the admins would catch on and revoke their moderator status.
I didn't see anything wrong with the CAH posts, but if their weren't reinstated by admin after being hidden and reviewed, they must've somehow violating posting rules.

Picking out mods from the people we like just so that they could moderate based on our preferences? Instead of letting an unbiased system pick them for us?
Granted, the system can not tell wether the person in question is overly sensitive, or faulty in any other way, or not but it still none the less is a better and more fair option than making moderating in to yet another damned popularity fest.
Mean, it would be highly convenient for you if only your friends were moderators. That way they would be4
