Is there only one active MOD on ATS?

I have recently had some warnings over the past few months from ATS staff about off topic posts and thread drift etc. While that is not a problem it has lead me to one simple question/observation. Is there only one Moderator working ATS or is my experience a rare example?

The reason I am asking this question is while reading my warning messages I started to look back over my time spent here on ATS and observed that one and only one MOD has ever warned me. Out of the many different subjects I have posted on over my years spent here it seems every time I may go over the T&C lines here at ATS it's always the same MOD who warns me or I have to apologize to or discuss my warning with.

While I know sometimes everyone including myself can get heated and sometimes need to be reeled back in, have others experienced the same thing? If you have ever been warned or had points deducted is it always the same Mod enforcing the warning? Have you ever been warned by two different mods or is it always the same one?

While this is open for discussion I would suggest if you have had an experience please refrain from naming any particular mod as I did. This thread is not to bash ATS or it Moderators so please do not name any Mods as I have not.

I'm only looking for if it is always the same Mod warning others as well or do they seem to get feed back from many mods here on ATS..

I think I have been told off by pretty much every mod there is including some that you might not even know exist.

I have also been given aplause by most of them sometimes in the same thread I have been told in by another lol.

Bah.

You haven't had a proper ATS spanking until you manage a 3 month posting ban from S.O. himself. Been there, done that. I sell T-shirts to memorialize it for $40 each.

HAHA point taken. However I'm not usually going for shock factor or to offend anyone when I post so I have been lucky enough to only suffer the regular bans. I'm not saying you did that on purpose to earn a 3 month ban of course.

What happens I think is that certain mods are dedicated to certain forums moreso than others, so if your transgressions
are committed in specific forums, you might see more from a particular mod...

Or you have a fan.

Good point, I'm pretty all over the place so ill have to look back and see if the warnings are from the same type subjects.

Go to the Forums short cut on the top line.

You will see a list of moderators and super moderators.

Cross-check with "on line members" in the list below.

TY for the info. Like I said this thread is not to single out any one Mod just a general question about others experience with Mods.

I know who the Mod who has always only warned me is. I didn't post their name on purpose and I'm not encouraging anyone else single out anyone as well.

In my case the amount of "little white envelopes of mystery" are directly proportional to my beer intake. It is a problem I am completely aware of and am undertaking to remedy but...

Beer man, beer!

It wasn't anything I said, but I won't go further into it - it's in the past and it was a big misunderstanding.

Apart from that I reckon I've managed to get the attention of 90% of admin and mods here since I signed up nearly 10 years ago. Off-topics, warnings - that kind of thing. No one person in particular, just depends on the forum I was posting in at the time. The admin and mods are assigned certain forums to look after, which is why you may see more from one mod than others.

I take heed of them, learn from the mistake and try not to repeat it. I love this website, I respect the rules and understand why they are enforced.

On an unrelated matter for many years I saw your avatar as a rabbit.

Often thought about saying so but the oppertunity never arose, is it just me?

I've only had one recent warning so that doesn't say anything but I've gotten applause from about 10 staff. So yeah there is more than one mod active.
