Dear AG Team,
I was wondering as an idea that maybe you can add a rank that is a below a moderator. This rank could be called a Helper and they are like a moderator's own sidekick. Like they help a moderator or they assist them in anyway. Of course they have to go through that scan thing that picks up respective people. This is my idea and I hope you guys look at it. Thank You.
From,

What powers would said helpers have that a regular user such as you or myself wouldn't necessarily have?

If the staff feels the moderation team needs help, they appoint new moderators. If they don't trust you with the full-blown moderator responsibilities, they don't trust you with any moderator powers. There's no reason to have more middle-men thrown in there.

Now that isn't to say that a regular user can't help a moderator with certain things. If you see someone violating site rules in any way, you can report them to a moderator and you'll make their job much easier.

Well personally I do not know what powers a moderator has.

Taken from a moderator's profile:

Moderators are user volunteers who have been selected by Administrators to help maintain the web site. Their duties including removing spam from the forums, locking forum threads, and helping users understand and follow the Terms and Conditions of being a member on the site and posting rules and guidelines for posting messages in the forums, game comments or user comments. Moderators can issue temporary bans from the site for users who do not follow rules, and are in contact with Administrators regarding permanent bans for repeat or major offenses.

Maybe this Helper rank can be provided to the younger kids below 18. And I think that they should enforce the rules and remove spam. How do you see this Ernie15?

This is similar to what they have on their GetSatisfaction page. Scroll down and you'll see "Champion of ArmorGames" and here's the description:
Respected and trusted members of the community appointed by the company to help provide expert advice to customers.

They don't have any powers, and I don't see much use of the idea.

That's what mods do.

Again, if they don't trust you with all the moderator responsibilities, they won't give you any of them. I don't see the staff having any reason to give "younger kids" the power to delete content when they could just as easily report it to a moderator without the chance of the younger user going mad with power.

Several users were modded before the age of 18. Just because they're not 18+ doesn't mean they're gonna go mad with power. Just like how it doesn't mean 18+ aren't going to go mad with power. Age doesn't define the person.

Otherwise yes, if they don't trust you with all powers, you aren't going to get any.
