Should we demod vanillajohn and put someone else in his place?

@vanillajohn has had literally ZERO activity since he joined, and he's a mod?

I get it, he works for Vanilla, but come on, does he even care about this forum?

I say we demod him and put someone else in his place, preferably someone like @MasterSparky.
RedCookie6666 here, wishing I could post more.
...Eh, whatever. Very little happens on the forums these days.

    I'm not really sure if anyone is a good choice for the position, though...As much as we need one.

    I would volunteer, but I'm not sure I could handle the responsibility. Or the urge to proudly announce "getttttt dunked on!!!!" if I ban someone.

    There's no point of keeping him as a mod, but I don't think we need a new mod at the moment. The current moderation is fine.

    Although I'd love to suggest somebody, I'm too unfamiliar with this forum and it's members, along what it's members think that makes for a good moderator.

    There's a limited number of moderator slots - we can't recruit someone else if an inactive mod is taking up a slot.

    literal best mod is one who hasn't even looked at the site for 2.5 years. That's how you mod.

    I could have sworn I read it somewhere, even on the forum, during a previous debate. Let's see if I can dig it up...

    Wow, then why do they even work?
    No wonder vanillajohn never moderates, his future is filled with community work
    (PS: as far as I know, it's moderators that are not paid, administrator are supposed to be)

    Moderators work to help the community they likely spent a long time in thus far to be considered for that slot, but that should be a given. Makes sense that Vanillajohn doesn't actually do any work, since he literally got it just because he's a guy from Vanilla, not because he fucking earned the spot.

    And, I always thought the entire staff team was non-paid...I could be wrong, though.

    I'm limited to the information that i can give about all this... but here are a few things

    - Our staff (neither moderators nor admins) is not paid in any form, requesting assistance from vanilla might be different but i don't know any details as i am "just" a mod here
    - vanillajohn is an account that has moderator level access in case trouble shooting is needed (on vanillas end - usually opti and ort fix stuff on their own as long as it is something not too complicated and accessible)
    - the forum hosting is not for free but we can waive ad-income here as it is paid through CC ads and donations, whatever is missing (if that happens) is paid by opti and ort iirc

    Wow, then why do they even work?
    No wonder vanillajohn never moderates, his future is filled with community work
    (PS: as far as I know, it's moderators that are not paid, administrator are supposed to be)

    The thought of moderators/admins being paid comes from bigger forums where you actually hire people to do that work for you. This forum is not big enough to warrant paying people for this kind of activity though.
    We simply do it because we want to keep the forums clean and enjoyable.

    Maybe one does understand now why we are simply banning people and don't feel like arguing about their behavior for too long all the time. After all we are not getting paid for this and it's just our personal time that is wasted for nothing then, at the same time, those that are acting bad do not bring any money to this whole "project" thus we have no obligation to keep them around. It's not our "job" to satisfy customers but our will to have nice acting people here that like to talk about stuff.


    I hope that adds some insight to the matter before anyone makes assumptions.

    I'm fairly certain you've been sub-mod before, and it didn't end well. ((Another thing I might be getting wrong, however.))
