Reaction to some replies:

Be less strict by a few people.
- Ok, will do.

Get less subforums by Ando Calrissian
- We usually remove any subforum that becomes redundant or inactive, but people continuously want forums back(Like the honours forums, not sure what happened to those?) so going back to a very small layout is going to be impossible. However if people find it annoying we can always try to get subforums out of sight or cut back on them earlier.

The team is a group of UKRP friends by Dan Moir
- Well, if you look at the 4 or so applicants for global moderator we got, it's going to be hard to have a broad selection of active and capable members. I agree that there's a shitload of UKRP members in the mod team, and I agree that we should pick people based on merits. However, that will either require more people to use the forums and apply, or for us to stop doing applications and just take whoever we want again. I think it's fair to say that it can be perceived as bias the way it is now, though, even if it s not.

Get the government to advertise the forums by Dan Moir
- I'll ask Jimbo if he wants to do this, but that's the best I can do, idem for Congress forums.

Increase the time that posts are shown for in new posts. by Dan Moir.
- Will do this.

Forum awards by Dan Moir.
- Got anything in mind? It would be nice if we could find a volunteer, or I can look into doing this later?

Send out a newsletter to the emails of everyone who ever registered on these forums who isn't banned. by Dan Moir.
- We already had parties on these forums do this, it yielded a few results. We will do a forum wide one again soon, but I don't want to spam people either.


I just picked some points from the responses, I'll reply to more of them later. Keep them coming!

To follow on from Gav's, just a couple things

"Applaud/Smite users option (like eusa forum)

All admins/mods reviewed by Kumnaa every [insert number here] months?"

I like both of these

As to kdogg, he's incredibly active, he just doesn't post often because you guys won't talk about Persona 4 with him...

I'm not too sure why you're proposing a forum newsletter Dan, as you were one of the few people to shoot me down on this when I tried getting it off the ground when MoR actually still existed.

1. I think the mods are far too lenient. Especially when compared to the old days. Maybe make amalgamate PD and General to make a "Play Nice" Area, and have a rapture for other general / off topic stuff, where people know what they're getting into.

2. Already in hand bruski.

I don't think Kdogg signs all of his edits. He's active though, and always gives his opinion about everything on the admin channel.

Also Keers we're not laughing about your post but actually taking it seriously, don't be so cynical please.

Couldn't you just do what we used to and make all mod applications public? If they're going to be a mod, they shouldn't be afraid to post that, and I don't remember seeing the applications for some time now. That would cut down the perception of "lolUKRP" and actually make people realize that in all reality most people didn't apply for it.

Sure you're not Frerk. After all the idea of you patronising others behind closed doors is so unbelievable. It's not the idea of criticism which irritates me, it's where people don't dare do it to my face.

I suppose that could be an idea for the future. We only had six applications, two came in after we had discussed it, one was TUP, one was UKRP, one was a troll application and one was a non-party member. And we did all agree to Rob.

I think Kdogg is a good mod. He's a dick and I don't particularly get on with him, but he doesn't really care if you don't like him, and isn't biased.

That's not true at all.  I told you kumnaa didn't want to do it because it was a major pain in the arse for several reasons (such as spam filters, unsubscribe links, etc.).  I always thought it was a good idea and told you so.

You saying my application was a troll? :(

Dear Mr. Kerr,

this is a terrible idea.

From my experience, if a forum allows continued flaming and trolling for whatever reason then the community goes to shit and it constantly ruins threads. I, for one, don't want that to happen.

It is also a very unfair environment for some individuals.

Sincerely,
