~ Are "Mini mods" evil?
The only people that think that are the idiots making stupid threads.

~ Are they actually helpful at all?
As a mod I can confirm that they are VERY helpful. You guy have no idea how many times the 'mini mods' have helped me track down shit on the forum.

~ Why would anyone hate mini mods?
Because they make stupid ass threads or like to act immature.

~ Do you hate/like mini mods? Why?
Personally I like them, some other mods may disagree with the harshness of some of them (you know who you are). But IMHO if you make a stupid move in the forum you've just painted a big red bullseye on your forehead for 'mini-mod humiliation'.

---> Are "Mini mods" evil?
It really depends on who we are talking about here...Some yes, most no...

---> Are they actually helpful at all?
Again it depends. If they nicely post a link to the original in a duplicate thread, or merely report a post without making any big to-do about it...That is helpful. Flaming on the other hand is never helpful and it is also against the rules. Any "Mini-Mod" you find flaming should be reported to the mods - end of story...

---> Why would anyone hate mini mods?
There are many reasons that people hate "Mini-Mods"... Mostly people hate them because they are being corrected or their thread is about to die as a result or they won't get those few extra CR points or because they aren't real mods...Still I think it is mostly that people hate being corrected, especially for things that can be done via PM (ie grammar error corrections ---> People please try not to look like assholes and be regularly correcting people's grammar in the open forums). These people that hate being corrected often also hate whoever does the correcting, be the mods or otherwise.

---> Do you hate/like mini mods? Why?
I don't hate them as a group because I know that what they do helps the mods and I know that I also tend to fall into that group sometimes. Still, I do not care for some of them though...

~ Are "Mini mods" evil?
Nope I think they do save time and keep the site clean

~ Are they actually helpful at all?
Sometime not always they do make mistake sometime

~ Why would anyone hate mini mods?
Because the person that hate does have any idea what damage they have done to the site

~ Do you hate/like mini mods? Why?
No reason to hate because they can report to mod about spammer within a short period of time and I hate spammers so I will enjoy seeing all spammers fade away from the site.

it's not like everyone knows right away what to do and what not to do


That's why people shouldn't start making topics immediately. They should take the time to become familiar with how things work/what the rules are/realize the search function exists for a reason before creating new threads which, more often than not, happen to be duplicates.

im not against mMods, just the ones that flame while they're at it.


I'm not lokita so I hope you don't mind me answering this but seriously, a PS2 is a game console, you have fun playing on it. Forums aren't a game, their for discussion, not necessary serious discussion but still discussion. I don't understand how a forum is related to a game or can be compared to it. For a game, you have more of the urge to play it, but the urge to put up a new topic...O.o

^My dear, that is a TERRIBLE example to use. Afterall, PS2 is crap, so who cares if they accidentally hit the 'self-destruct' button?

I know this is rather contradictory of me, but I do find some mini-mods annoying. Especially ones who flame, and post '~reported' on a thread that has already been reported These are the ones who are mainly posting for glory, a biscuit on the nose, and a scratch behind the ear.

Edit: Sorry -_-...I forgot to mention the people who go 'ooh, this thread is so going to get locked!' 'Haha, you're thread is going to get locked' 'nobody bother posting on this thread! It's definately going to be locked' and so on, and so forth...

Anyone who was here when Shinji requested Mod applicants would know the mini-modding franchise really went out around that time. Every n00b with a craving for power and a twisted sense of justice applied, and most of which had never been seen before. Before that time, I would regularly check the forums, report duplicate threads, and post a link to the original (this would include FINDING the original the difficult way; searching on google). From my knowledge, there was a handful of us that actually did that, including some current hardworking moderators.

Anyway, because of this, dozens of mini-mods appeared, talking on the Casual Chat with the Mods thread, voicing their dissappointment at not being chosen as a mod. Of course, they were told it was because they weren't seen to be doing anything helpful on the forums, and thus...

...the mini-mod was BORN!

After that, I couldn't get to a thread quick enough before someone had gone 'You n00b, stop making duplicate threads! ~reported'

So you could say I am filled with malice. You probably wouldn't be wrong ^_^ but thanks to the mini-mods, I had to find better things to do, like homework, and buy manga off Amazon.

...not that I've actually done any homework since 2004.

Is there an actual conclusion to my typings?

...yes. It's the same as most peoples.

The mini-mods are helpful ^_^ but most are annoying shits just doing it to look superior to the regular CR posters.

because they do it just to rack up cr points

not really but the forums would be better without them since they just want cr points mainly


You get no points from locked threads. Great job Noob Princess.

A PS2 is basic to set up, unless you're a complete noob at hooking up any console. Forums are different, most people have never been on one. And each forum in different in the way they work. PS2 isn't exactly the same as a Gamecube when plugging it up, but they're barely any different. Also when hooking up a PS2/Gamecube you're not going to be affecting a crowd of E-people, who happen to be people. On a forum you will affect others to a large amount.

As Lokita says, nobody should be making a thread when they first join a forum. It screams embarrassment.

love the last answer. even though 1 mMod says its duplicate etc. i love to add on and make fun of the creator of the thread and post the correct link again even though a person already did it. it kinda makes me feel like i'm gang banging the creator of the thread.

Bet the mods hate them, but yeah they help point out noob mistakes
~ Why would anyone hate mini mods?
noobs over react when they are caught being a noob
~ Do you hate/like mini mods? Why?
I don't have a problem with mini-mods because i play safe on the forums, never make a topic and only post twice in a thread if u are quoted O.o and if i do start a new topic i would make it way out there so know one would have thought of it O.o

Mmm..... well some but not all, mini mods who keep on giving you warnings and try to act like real mods are annoying, I mean get the facts, your not a real mod bud :)

~ Are they actually helpful at all?

Sometimes, but other times they are just plain annoying.


~ Why would anyone hate mini mods?

Like I said, some tend to be really annoying by sucking up to the mods, giving tons of warnings and not actually reporting the thread. I think that's the main reason some people hate mini mods.

~ Do you hate/like mini mods? Why?

It goes vice versa for me, sometimes they can be really helpful but other times not so helpful. Like I said in the very beginning "your not a real mod, get over it".

Ps: i really have no problem with mini mods as long as they don't act all noobish and superior. Some are actually quite friendly
