I myself am in the chat rooms almost 24/7 and it bothers me to see that there are barely any mods in the chatroom today, there where 7 mods on yesterday, but none on a Saturday? I mean where are they all hiding? Did they go on a picnic together? does Shinji take them out to lunch? Now I love my mods but I just wish the only hours they could be on are late at night or when all the other mods are on. Its a little unfair.

here are a few screen shots of todays spam for you to ponder about.

This fellow is named jay119, Weird little man but he indeed is a spammer at heart.

Ah yes let it soak in all the spammy goodness you never want to hear or see.

Now watch as I ask him why he spams. Oh you'll love this!

Oh my the never of him saying that right in front of two, yes two afk Mods.. This man sure has da balls of a hero for now lets call him Mc.Spammy cute name don't you think? I think it sound s a little to fast foodish tho. at least its better than Spam King: "We have it spam's way!" lmao what fun what fun

after a while he was filled a few times came back and spammed, my guess it was s_j_b because we all know Basou wouldn't take shit like that. lol lmao isn't this fun? Well he was banned after a few kicks but the damage was done :D


Now here is a rare bread of spammer I like to call these photobucket-dumbass, giving long links to of pictures to really no one but hey who's gonna stop him its not like there are mods in the chat anyway, ahem i mean non-afk mods, no hard feelings i think s_j_b is a nice person same with Basou, and I do understand that they can be quite busy so please don't take this the wrong way. I love you, i really do!! <3

Oh I almost missed the spammer up on top, although it isn't spam really, its not English so I guess it is spam. Curse you all, who would ever think of speaking Japanese on a Asian culture website CURSE I SAY CURSES.

Sorry for the big red spots at the time I was having a private conversation with a friend, its alright if I don't let you see right *makes those big old puppy dog eyes*


Since Soldev's topic for the more chat mod request got locked for going off topic I would like for this Thread not to go off topic so here are DA RULES


DA RULES

-No saying "_____" should be a mod
-No saying being a mod is about popularity
-No saying Mods are useless, they do have other things to do.
-No flaming me or other people because you disagree or some one says something otherwise, I'd like this to remain a intellectual Conversation between Peers. Big words
-No random comments for example, quoting someone and saying, i agree, because thats a stupid comment.
-Please if you don't know what I'm talking about just leave this thread now.
-If you have other screen shots of people miss behaving please post we always love to watch people spam.
-If you have something to say but are unsure or not if its right or not, please go ahead and say it, anyone is allowed to express their opinion in a non-violent way. isn't life grand?


I'm really a nice person I am I also believe in CR and you should to, this is are website and we need to take it back from the noobs and the spammers!!!

Here is the link to Soldev's thread about requesting new chat mods. I completely agree with his statement but people had to mess it up by going off topic. But other wise there are more examples of Spamming/chat room violence and non-pg-13 material. Although the thread is locked it still carries a very good point.

If only they would spam infront of Shinji when he is in the chats what would be funny, wait I mean when Shinji is not afk. ps: afk is another name for idling which i believe is against the rules in some way. but oh well its not a big problem =D

Sorry but i'm a bit fed up with all the chat mod talk today so i will make a quick comment and be back later if this isn't locked.

''the damage was done''
What?
I hadn't seen him before so i gave him a chance: warnings and explaining the rules. I'm not going to ban him straight away to save everyone from a few lines of spam. It's not like the forum where spam may stay for a while and cause problems.

Personally i think we have more important things to deal with than some bored members posting random letters. It's honestly not the end of the world! ^-^

It is very intriguing how people NOT follow rules which are in front of them. People has been talking about many inappropriate topics using inappropriate language, it is NOT understandable for them to try and secede from their mishaps saying " It was a stupid mishap, and why should you care."

~I think this matter should be solved. Many people go in the chat from all over the world, many gets confused with the form of their inappropriate speech. People who do not understand might also get hurt emotionally which would be considered internet (chat) bullying which law enforcers are focusing these days, and is dangerous for the site. I have made also a mishap of saying to nominate myself, and I admit to it. Though, I have been thinking a lot of this matter, and I do not think, that just by adding mods is a good counter for this problem for it is inevitable for humans to break rules and not reflect to it (Human Nature).

I'm sorry for busting your balls over this and I do know mods have a lot of better things to do its just sometimes there are no mods in the chat rooms and it goes wild. And for some users like myself who don't have the best ram or the best internet connection cant stay connected because of this spam hell I sometimes even lag and get a server disconnect just because the chat is moving to fast.

@gun Alot of time that's not spam- just lots of useless talk and people splitting their sentances into several pieces.

In the end i just think everyone has the wrong idea. The chat isn't a 2 year olds playground where there's always a teacher watching over you. It's like a field in highschool- sometimes there's teachers and sometimes there's not. There's some annoying people who irritate you? You move to a different part of the field until someone shushes them.
We have groups now and the other chat rooms. So you can easily move around if a chat is going too fast.

I'm not saying we don't need more chat mods- we really do! Just that everyone needs to calm down and stop making a big deal out of this.
I'm beginning to think that everyone just thinks being a chat mod is all glory and power- hence why everyone is asking to be one. It's not.
You will be hated
You won't get to chat as much
You will mostly have forced repect- no real 'glory'

CRUNCHYROLL CHAT RULES:

1. Respect the ops (operators) of the room.
NOTE: The operators are thefinalword, Jorlwind, Zeronite, as well as the moderators listed on the staff page (http://www.crunchyroll.com/staff).
They can kick you out from a room, ban you from a room, ban you from the site, and nuke your account. Both forum AND media moderators are chat room ops.

2. The chat is still PG-13--meaning no inappropriate topics, discussions, images, or links.

3. The main chatrooms (crunchyroll, anime, games, music, drama, fansubs, uploaders, mods) are to be ENGLISH-ONLY. If you wish to speak in another language, make your own chatroom (see below).

4. Do not type in all CAPSLOCK (unless occasionally for humor).

5. Refrain from typing something completely irrelevant (being random) when others are having a conversation.

6. NO FLAMING and/or aggressively cussing/swearing.

7. Type intelligibly. Refrain from extreme 1337, text-speak, or ghetto-talk.

8. DO NOT drag out words, punctuation marks, or add excessive emoticons.

9. Multiple lines of short words such as 'blah,' 'hey,' 'hi,' 'u there?' 'lol,' 'haha,' 'what,' 'bye,' and 'bored' are not allowed. This can be considered spamming and will encourage others to spam as well.

10. No asking for email addresses, AIM screen names, MSN contacts, buddy requests, etc. PMs and GBs exist for those purposes.

11. Be in the correct room. To discuss drama, go to the drama room; to discuss anime, go to the anime room, etc. This is similar to the forum, there are sections for specific subjects.



These are the crunchyroll chat rules as declared by the almighty himself, as a mod I'm sure you know them, but what your saying now says that 6-9 are being ignored, Now why would a person I nick named The Almighty create rules not to be enforced or followed? By the way I love your job and I respect it, I just cant get over the fact that some people don't know how to click the big read button that says CHAT RULES in the upper left hand corner. I'm not saying mods suck in all this I'm saying we need to find a way to end all this lies/hate/other evil stuff which are wonderful CR chatroom is built on.

^ Actually i'm pretty sure the mods made those rules.

6- several members have been banned for excessive flaming. Personallyh i prefer to keep the peace through persuasion rather than force of banning instantly.
7- this is impossble to mod. We would be kicking and banning continuously.
8- that results in a warning
9- we class that as spam and warn/kick/ban. You've seen that yourself ^-^
10- You were on earlier when i told someone not to do this. We can only stop them the second time they do it- we also tend to give them a chance incase they've still missed the rule.
11- that is upholded

To conclude:
1- We need more chat mods.
2- We need members to, putting it simply, 'get over it' (the chat is a small bit of this site)

That's enough now as i'm saying this without discussing things with the other mods. ^-^

All the spam is annoying, but it could seriously be a lot worse. I think that CR does needs to get more chat moderators, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

[email protected]_j_b I believe we need new members too but the one thing is they are spamming 14 year old girls who are just gonna spam and send chain mail. Its not like they will buy a badge or anything. Hell half the spammers you see now a days are people who hate CR and make accounts to spam for no reason.

One other thing I dont like is how chat mods are treated like bastard kids of mods, I mean why have chat mods at all if any mod can kick or ban, hell I say forum mods stick to forums media mods stick to media and chat mods stick to chat. Cause if your gonna call forum mods forum mods they should only have powers in the forum, also chat mods should have equal number of mods and say in voting for new chat mods. Because I see the chat mods more than I see half of the media mods.

And if Shinji needs more money to support CR he should just sell old badges for a dollar each, without the high quality. Because if i remember right wasn't CR made for Shinji and his friends and then it just got bigger, are worries shouldn't be on members

@gun

1- We've always had members like that. Tough luck! Yes we don't all get along with the leechers or younger member but they still have a right to be here. If shinji decides he doesn't want or can't afford them then he will change the streaming rules.

2- Forum mods are forum and media mods. Alot of us help with the media too and it makes things easier without having lots of mods. As for not giving us powers in the chat- bad idea. If a mod is on and has nothing else to do they can mod the chat. Alot also do it as they media or forum mod. Think how often slowdanse is on!

3- That's actually a good idea but i'm not sure about the low price.

4- Worries? A little spam?

5- I know this post looks grumpy i'm sorry. I actually just use lists when i'm sleepy so i don't ramble. ^-^ I just want to sort this out.
