Oh, I shouldn't...but I must ask a silly question. Have any MODS found that special person, that all elusive love connection, while being a MOD?

Curious I am.....

Haha, i'm pretty sure MODs also follow the "no relationships in workplace" attitude. It can only lead to bad ending.

It is rumored to have happened... but who knows for sure?


Such personal matters are best left personal... don't you think?

don't mind him, he's just playin coy


well ... that, and he gets leg cramps at the most inopportune times.

I'm just teasing.

I've met a Lot of Great Folks, both here on the boards as well as 'behind the scenes', so to speak.


Nearing 7 years later and I wouldn't trade it for Anything.
- like family.



*actually ... i probably would trade out some family members for the likes of y'all and these folks*

You two make such a lovely couple.

Simply adorable... like a puppy and kitten playing with a ball of yarn.


Erm... oh, yeah, where were we? Companionship. Yes, that's the ticket.

Well, we do get along (usually), but as with any group of about 70 people, you're going to have long debates about everything. Staff is like a box of chocolates... you never know what you're going to get until you bite into one of them.

So mods what do you get out of being a moderator on ATS?


I get to be a part of the best staff on the internet. Forge life long friendships with other moderators and the owners/admin. As well as get a first hand taste of what it is to help run this wonderful place.

It's a great feeling to know that your hand helps keep this place as great as it is.

Other than that, I love this place, have since I joined back in 2008. The community is what brings me back.


Are there any perks too being a mod?.


Being mod is nothing more than being a member, the only difference is that we are entrusted with tools that allow us to moderate the boards and make sure that everybody is conforming to the Terms & Conditions.



Do you get paid or get any freebies for your time and effort?


Nah we save all that stuff for our annual sacrifice of to be banned members...


But no, we do this for free, because we love this place.



Do you enjoy being a mod?


Yes I do love it. It's tough some days dealing with the ins and outs of T&C infractions and members that are less than cordial, but mostly the interactions with members are always enjoyable.



Are there any drawbacks to being a mod?


As stated above, there are bad days. They never outweight the good ones. I think the biggest drawback IMO is having your opinion somehow looked at differently because of mod status. But that's easily handled and not such a big deal..

The rest of us is that pile of yarn.

more like this...



damn. thanks for 'placing' me as the dog, tone.
i'd have hated to be on the other side of things.
[00:21 onward]

as for being the 'yarn' and all..

I consider each and every a filament part of the fabric, which when loomed together, makes ATS the overall mish mash of 'like kind' minds it would seem. - Interested Individuals. (?)

Personally,
The world could use mOar of the same.
, in my opinion.

I love this site, and I have thoroughly enjoyed this thread
OP. It was great to read comments from some of the Mods I have seen their names, but have not run across them, or only seen the after effects of their work, scorched earth


It is clear how much you love the site and each other, ATS has a great heart, I see it from the Mods,Owners and the Members 99% of the time I spend on here. The other 1% and some days 100% I am laughing so hard I am crying.

She does.

As a 'familial unit' we'd likely rank but a mere notch or two above dysfunctional ...
.. but, on the whole, we do strive to do our level best to be as straight forward, upfront and even-keeled as possible - no one's perfect


... no matter those who might claim to know or speak to otherwise ....


If ever a question or concern Please don't hesitate to ask.

Anyone seeing that amazing perk right there!?

*Bump*

Simply cos this is such a great thread and apart from that little bit in the middle I think its great that the mods and members of ATS can interact in such a light hearted way.This is what I love about this site and it just goes to show everyone here (more or less) is really human after all. It has also given me an insightin the behind the scenes workings of ATS, which I find interesting as one of my favourite members here happens to actually be a mod (please take a bow Asktheanimals).

Also I've heard a few rumours and was just seeking a little clarification. Is it true that mods are only chosen from those select few who actually give reasons for editing a post?
