I wanted more than just three people moderating the forums period, because as cool as the word Triumvirate is, it isn't feasible here. More mods would be specifically there only to rifle down the zombie robot hordes slamming at the gates and let survivors in. :P
Q.U. wrote:Hopefully not, because I clearly stated that I don't approve of that solution other than some kind of temporary buffer should other means to deal with it be delayed. Besides, how many mods it would require would depend on the traffic.
In this following statement, I am not quoting statistics, but going by feel, so I could be absolutely wrong by my ratios and maths entirely, but the pattern I felt went about like this:
When we were open, we were getting steadily dozens of new members over the course of a month or two. Of those, a third never posted again or only once ever few months on a comic update. About half go and stick to a particular forum but still are sporadic and don't post much. The remaining sixth are those who explore and try to become a part of the community actively, and regularly post once having joined--generally they go to RP or Spam for their activity, too, I would like to make note, finding it quite interesting.
We have no solid way of telling, right now, because of our forums' software being REALLY out of date, when a user who registers is a robot, and so we have to nuke them after they've joined, which is why we would need more moderators who could perform pretty much just that duty.
But I agree with Q.U. here: We shouldn't need to have additional mods.
Out of sheer coincidence, I would like to mention how I am glad that both Q.U. and Grey are in Europe, so we have better coverage time-zone wise, if even a little bit. Not sure where Valhallen lives. He's a riddle shrouded in enigma wrapped in mystery. But he's fucking Ess Em Are Tee SMRT smart.
