Is it in the forums? Or a different website?
Ooooh never mind, I just saw your post on my profile. Sure I will join!
i think the idea is pretty good
If it helps cut down on spamming, which it seems to be doing, well I am all for it!
lol, looks like a very good idea
SHOPS is the bomb. (im in it ) as carlie said it reduces spamming!
I am cofused are only moderators allowed in "the SHOPS" because otherwise there isnt really a way to prevent spamming hacking(except reporting which is for made to maintain the community clean and not to gain popularity).If you arent all moderators why must you show everyone that your reporting posts and not do it like a model part of the community.
I agree with nqkoi here...
It was a group that they started, approved by Dan, to help cut down on spamming. It doesn't hurt anything, the only thing it does is get rid of some spammers.
But how does it do that?Reporting?Or does it have the power to ban?
No, they do not have the power to ban. Moderators do not even have the power to ban, just admins at this point. They find someone spamming, come up with the evidence for it, and then report it to Dan. Dan, in turn can ban them if he feels that have really spammed.
All of the SHOPS members I have seen spam comments multiple times. Sadly, I must say that, in my opinion, SHOPS is just a a way to:
1) Gain more points
2) Attempt to cover up suspicions against spam
3) Chop down other spammers so they don't pass SHOPS members in the rankings
4) Sound good
I'm not happy with the recent top ten being overtaken with members whom do questionable things and do not follow the rules.
Moderators cant ban?Odd well anyway this SHOPS thing is quite badly ran since some of its members are rulebreakers.
They can't yet at least. But odds are if you are a moderator, the admins trust your judgment. So keeping in good communication with them about who should be banned works just as well.
What can moderators do?Delete post,move and lock forums?Because if none if that is in the force of a moderator isnt his/her power as strong as a normal user.Because I also report spammer, but that doesnt make me a moderator.Also I saw in the FAQ that you can suggest yourself for moderator, but can I suggest another user?
