If you had a chance to speak to the younger version of you as the younger version was just joining the site, what would you tell them?
What would you say is the most difficult part of being a staffer?
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be and why?

Question for any mod:
Have you ever had to delete a thread that you truly found amusing or interesting?

to be fair the print and contrast colors make it so hard to read that the first day I inadvertently pushed the "this post> button thinking I was marking it for me to read later.I am serious even with enlarging fonts ..seeing print is pretty darn hard I'd surmise only folks under fifty could read it.. I cannot see folks info under their names at all
other than enlarging my font.. I shall just avoid long thread.s..(most of them)
Is there any system in place for marking potential deranged posters so they can be monitored?
What is the absolute limit for being re-instated after being banned (how many times)
Nope, no more than you are by the things you read here and decide upon yourself.
Have any of the Mods ever felt they were being approached by an outside influence? (media/Government etc)
It's the members that make this all work, and we're just part of the membership. Without members alerting staff of problems, we'd be hard pressed to keep a semblance of civility.
I thank you all for your hard work and dedication and refusal to stray from the T&C and in my opinion that is what keeps things nice and clean here.
If you disagree with a mod's decisions, do you have recourse? An appeals process, etc?
access the ATS Complaints/Suggestions tool by selection Tools from your menu bar and then complaint from the list of options below that toolbar.

quick question now i just thought of . my wife and I share a computer so i guess we have two accounts on the same ip address , could this ever cause a problem on ats .
How do you get to be a mod ?
Are you asked ?
