GameSpot Moderations?

What I hate is the little buggers who lurk around the boards and report every little breach of the ToS.

Yeah, that's one of the reasons why I read the ToS after I got my first moderation. I made sure no one would mod me again.

I still haven't read it, I just try and be nicer to people.

[QUOTE="julian_jr"] They are bound to get caught eventually if they post in the wrong board though.

If you have a different IP and different account and keep your mouth shut you can make it :P

I find some admins can be not very nice either.Spartan_385
I don't talk to them much, I prefer to stay unknown and away from them if possible :lol:

Still wrong though. A site that I was admin off had that problem, so I respect sites like GS for their work. I know how hard it is trying to stop them.

I agree, but not like I can stop them unless I start frying computers but that's against the law :P

I wanted to make a new accont and happened to join this mod union on the same day and an admin who lurks there revealed my old account (this one) and accused me of creating an account just so I could infiltrate the union. I dislike him greatly, I think his name was Dracula99 or something.

Why should he care if you made another account though?

He's actually GameFaqs but he helps out over here on GS he's usually in SE and Enhancements, Welcome Newbies and Tech Support though

I don't have a clue but he delved into my personal details and posted my first name against my wishes.

He should stay on Gamefaqs.

You know you can report such things to someone like Bethany or JodyR

I don't mind him, but by the sounds he was wrong in what he did but I'd have to see everything that went on to really know what happened :P

After that I abandoned my "new" account And have never returned to the union. I could report him to customer service but It was a few months ago so id rather forget it.

The moderator collective. Where mods preach they are no different from normal users, then why have a union about them? I couldn't post there for long, I felt under to much scrutiny.

If he does anything like that again to you, then you could report that. The admin is going against the very own ToS.

I wouldn't post either. I did one time discover a hidden moderater board though, that was sooooo spammy and against the rules. Didn't say anything though since I'd probably be the one to get in trouble if I reported it.:P

that is why i am banned on Gamefaqs, i told the moderators they had too much power. i was telling them the truth.

It's never a good idea to argue with mods. They almost always win.

Some of the mods here in GS though have gotten in trouble while being a mod. I remember Omni, an older mod, got in trouble while he was a moderater for breaking the rules.

even the Moderators should follow the the rules.

In GS they have to. Members here can report them if they have evidence of them breaking a rule. They rarely break the rules though.

With mods its not a cse of winning its just they never back down, and then the admins back the mods up.

The mods have a seceret union/board only mods are allowed to see and post in.

They probably do have a secret board. I know that in a site I was admin of, I made a secret board only viewable to mods, so I bet they have one here as well. I know that have a secret union that is pretty well hidden that was off-topic, before that moderater collective union.

The Moderator collective is just a very strict OT union with a bad atmosphere, with nosey admins who check your not ban dodging as soon as you arrive.

You can't really relax and enjoy a union full of people who can take so much fun out of the boards.

Yeah, they don't let minor infringements slide. They moderate away.

Was it a Moderator board or a GS Staff board, if they had a G in a circle by their name then it was a testing board and meant to be spammy

Sorry to break it to you guys but they check IP's and info for banning shortly after you sign up, no matter where you post

It was a moderater board since their avy was all the different mod emblems and it was mainly the mods that posted.

I wouldn't care if they checked my IP, since I'm not ban dodging. I wonder if someone that has ban dodged been stupid enough to go join that board.:lol:
#250 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -

I've found several, since I sometimes check the important moderater profiles when bored. I'll go to posting history and discover those places when board.:P
