Including (especially?) mods. Everybody has "bad hair days", and though us staffers are charged with enforcing the
terms & conditions
, the site owners have gone to great pains to inspire us to
be cool about it.
We will inevitably butt heads now and then, and disagree over some thing or another. You may have a thread moved or even get warned by a mod even
though you're absolutely positive
you've done nothing wrong.
And hey, you might be right.
Mods make mistakes too, just like everyone else. When we do, we want you to
let us know.
But whatever the hubbub may be, I hope you'll never forget that we're just members too. We were offered the opportunity to take our love for ATS to
the next level and went for it, but it's not easy and exposes our weaknesses as much as our strengths.
Understanding this, I know I'm not the only mod who sees the importance of approaching the job with caution and a sense of humility, because we all
make mistakes, and nobody
wants bad karma for mistreating a fellow member.
Anyway, sorry for the long diatribe (though it doesn't even scratch the surface of the complexities of being an ATS mod), but I just wanted to say
that when push comes to shove, we're on your side.
