According to this forum administrators are volunteers. They are usually posters that were forum moderators or super moderators at some point that have moved into a different role.

Administrators have all the roles of a super moderator but additionally create new forums, deal with complaints about moderators, discuss forum rules and any other issues pertaining to the board.

Five months ago I asked one administrator something related to forum rules, and guess what, he still did not answer me anything. At least to tell me "I do not know", nothing. So why is he dministrator?

@James, do you remember, maybe a year ago, when I put in my avi administrator sign, and you told me that I need to change avi because it brings confusion among TF posters?
I didn't say you said James was a bad Administrator. I said I would take him over all the Moderators and Administrators that MTF had! And I would At MTF when posters go from being "just a poster" to Moderators/Administrators they tend to forget very quickly what is it like to be "just a poster". Not all of them, of course, AdeyC is a Moderator here and at MTF also and he hasn't changed a bit! But he is the exception rather than the rule IMHO!

And since I can tell we are not going to agree on this subject at all I'll stop posting about it, if you will?

And why you say "thankfully this isn't MTF", MTF is definitely running in a better way than TF. At least Administrators on MTF are doing their jobs, unlike here where only James, Meelis and maybe another one do something, and the others are useless for forum and forum posters.

Looks like you do not want to understand. You always add James in this story, I agree with you that James does a better job then all Moderators and Administrators on MTF AND HERE TOGETHER. But there would not be a problem if James and Meelis are only one administrators, the problem is that there are few people in that position who do not deserve it. There are a lot of moderators who have been doing an excellent job (Adey too) but they don't have a chance to be upgraded in Administrators because of selfish people who have been very useful in the past, but now they are not.

I did not say that they do their job excellent, but at least they are doing something. There is not an internet forum where everything works fairly, even in real life everything isn't fair. Even here we have double rules, some people instantly get ban and another for the same violations rarer get ban.

Re: Banned Users Thread?

Opinions will differ on whether moderation is better on TF or on MTF. It depends on one's preference in general.

While it is true that some admins are currently less active, due to various reasons (they are volunteers with a personal life) I can truly say that all of them have put in their fair share over a long period. It is up to the preference of the individual admin to indicate whether they want to give up their position or not. Their hard work in past and present warrants they do not lose the badge immediately when their private life allows them less time for moderating. We have enough admin power at the moment. It does not rely only on Meelis and I (let's not forget Zamboni or Canuck for instance).

In essence, an admin will most likely still reply when asked questions or forward to another admin if needed. It is regrettable you have had a bad experience there, Igorche.

Re: Banned Users Thread?

There needs to be a list of permabanned posters so we can all laugh at secretly

But I think the process should be more transparent

It is an incredibly long list, so be careful what you wish for.
