Title: Sack Frerk
Post by: Dan Moir on October 07, 2013, 09:24:45 pm
It's been 17 days since he even logged into the forum.

I wouldn't have started a new topic but the previous one was locked without good reason.

Don't worry, he'll be removed and then added 3 days after coming back.
On the bright side, least the 7 people here aren't running riot.

Continually pointing out how shit they are in public isn't the best way of going about getting the job.  I served my time anyway!  Needs someone else to sort out Frerks mess this time.

You seem to be the only one that cares though, why not take up the mantle once again.  You don't need to go full Dan Moir mode again.  We pretty much rule ourselves nowadays anyway.  having someone on hand who knows what they are doing would be a handy thing to have.

No I came back before being removed.

I wonder though, if it took this long for somebody to start caring I wonder if instead we wouldn't be better off keeping me on and giving up on the idea of forums altogether..

That or we can just replace me with Dan and Butjam.

Nothing for them to do, and I've never had a problem reaching Frerk in a crunch.

Lets just have the shittest person possible in charge then.  Why not hand it over to Dapper & BigAnt?  Or Goku?

Or we could try appointing someone who does give a shit and who might make at least some effort to improve it.

Honestly, this is just Dans way of getting Admin, so just fucking give it to him and be done with it.  He's the only person to give a shit, so he fulfils his criteria of respectable admins...

Current perfectly sound condition.  Is it flower.  Your piss poor posting quality is probably one of the worst things about the forum.  Pedo rubbish/useless spam all over the shop regardless of which forum area.  Something decent mods/admins would deal with.

If you could actually lay out what you want the admin to do,then you would either prompt frerk to do it or get some support for a new admin.

"Log in" isn't a quantifiable benefit, nor is banning diakun going to boost activity lol.

I don't even know who is moderator but it would make sense to promote one of them to administrator.
I would prefer someone who has a sense of humour and doesn't take everything on the heavy side but with clear guidelines on what is the border.
Frerk was like that. I hope you guys find someone or agree on someone :)

It's pretty bloody obvious.  To give just a few examples - They oversee the moderators, deal with the structure of the forum and generally manage anything to do with the forum.  They can't do that, nevermind more pro-active stuff if they are not here.

We don't need to define their entire job role between us.  We just need somebody active and bright to take on the role and then they can look after it.

If my company appointed a new managing director, they wouldn't ask the guys in the factory to define his role.  He would be able to come in and make the job his own in his own way.  Effort, activity and ability is what we need rather than a limited checklist of admin functions.

Not great examples. Rearrange forums nobody uses and manage mods with no posts to mod? What exactly has frerk not done, what exactly has gone wrong?

The place is inactive because of community infighting causing regular mass quits.

I think that the forum needs to be the heart of government with erepublik related content which helps players to play.

That is going to require rethinking party, election and government structure.

Minecraft etc help but they wont carry the place since they require no commitment.

And this kind of behaviour is why the forums are in decline, not because frerk didnt log in. In comparison erepublik itself has actually grown in the last 3 months. Check Alexa.

What I am doing or have done is irrelevant to the content of my posts, Google ad hominem.
