Hey everyone... I just had this thought and please... FEEL FREE to contradict what I say. I won't be offended
I thought of something like mini-mods. I know to be a mod, you have to be 18 or older. But like, I feel bad about how sometimes people post bad things on profiles but rarely anyone ever sees it and they don't get in trouble. But someone else does the same and they do. And some people don't. To make the mods jobs a little easier, I thought a group of members who usually may post and get on could help out a little. Like to look at profiles and if they think something is wrong to flag a mod. Because some people just don't realize that what they are posting could be seen by a 5 year old.
Mods, I don't think, have the time to be looking at every single member's profile to see if it's safe. I know there are alot of mods, but they may not need help...
I know it's not the best idea but it's happened. Seeing profiles that had a bad pic in their albums. Just so WI can be that much safer than it already is. lolz
I think thats a great idea! I have seen lots of bad words like the F one. Theres over 9 million posts on here and I dont think its possible for 30 something mods to do all that. Thats about 100,000 posts per mod if theres 9 million posts, 30 mods! Plus, people have crazy scedules and I could be doing something at 9:00 am and you couldnt so theres no possible way for all 30 something mods to be on at the same time! Great Thinking- I think we might need to bring this idea to admins.
This is a good idea, but they'd probably have to be 18 or older as well.
They have done something like this but the people were called Forum Protectors and they had to remove that spot because staff on a site like this cannot be under 18. It's a good concept though.
Thanks for posting, I'd give rep but it won't let me. xD
However, this one...I believe WI used to have such a thing as "forum protectors". They were taken away, however...not sure why, though. You're saying that the mini mods could go around and flag posts and edit with a mod's consent. The thing is, anyway can flag posts, and the mods will get to it right away.
I believe that in order to comply with the COPPA, a background check can only be done on adults, members 18 or older. And all WI mods have to be background checked, so all mods must be adults...I know you already mentioned this, but really.
I'm sorry, backflip, I just don't think this idea would work out too well.
Rep for the thought though. Dangit, it won't let me. Well, a hug and *fuzzy* for you anyway.
