Moderating sounds hard


if moderating was hard, nearly half the team would be inactive or lazy.

which means moderating must be pretty difficult.

The question have been many times before, I think even I have asked it once. The answer is no.

Would that be the admins or would there be a mod leading the mods?


That's cormyn's way of telling us how important he is.

is there a limit on the amount of moderators?


Read that post I made on the previous page.

What is a moderator?

Read the opening post.

Also here's a summary found on their profiles:
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.

Is hacking the site a permanent ban?

Is hacking the site a permanent ban?

Yes.
Or a strict warning, long ban and a slim second chance, depending on what was done.
But playing with the code is a no-no, hacking the games is even more so, and exploiting any weaknesses to the site might be the only thing that would ever possibly get you less than a permanent ban from the site.

cormyn once said that hacking as a first offense is a 14-day temp-ban, but hacking at any other time is a perma-ban.

He only said that about using programs like firebug to change variables in the site, which isn't really hacking.

Ian once said AG3 would launch in the first half of 2011. Stuff changes over time, and depending on who is online to ban you and what not. It is easier to say you get a permaban at first offence and watch people ruin the site completely once, and laugh us in the face because they think they are only going to get a temporary ban.
