    I've read a lot of site commentary in the past few days, and I've also seen a lot of bans recently regarding similar threads to this, so I'm going to be treading very carefully here.

    What I seem to have noticed recently is that the moderators appear swamped and, with this new change to the rules, people seem to be getting infracted and banned more frequently.

    I'll try not to make this an incredibly long post, but I think I've got a solution to the problem. Demote the current mods. I don't mean any offence to them at all, but they've all been doing it too long. You guys were all great in the beginning. I remember when kiks was first brought on board, he cleaned this forum up very nicely! But things seem to have crept back. I know that you guys are experienced at being moderators, but I think everyone needs a break. The hiring of new blood into the moderator ranks would bring some enthusiasm back into the forum.

    I'm not suggesting it be permanent, I'm just asking who thinks this may work. Or what your ideas would be.

    I'd suggest it be in seasons, each season have a batch of Moderators. Though I'd say keep SkylarEC and Danls92 as they are.

    Skylar doesn't really mod though.
    Just kinda tells people they suck at coding.
    And I never even see Danls92 around.
    I'm sure he is , but I don't see it.

    I think that they should just get some new mods.

    It would help get rid of the spammers and stuff I think.

    And they should just immediately ban people for doing something, except double posting, spamming, flaming/trolling. Maybe I'm being too strict, though.

    Well, some do modding in the background so you dont see them as much. I was thinking more Mods imo but doubt it will happen.

    Im sure its been discussed before and will probably get closed.

    It shouldn't get closed though.
    This site hardly promotes free speech

    That's what we need.
    Newer mods who actually mod.
    I know he's been a mod for awhile , but you get my drift.
