Default Making of a MOD.

With all the Mod talk the last couple of months, I was just wondering what you think makes a mod a good mod? Did'nt want to put this in the BF, but I thought I would cut out the middle man.

IMO, I think being able to understand the difference of satire and being serious is a big key to being a good mod.

What do you think?

A good MOD needs to be able to wield the "ban hammer". On my forums if you go over the line, I slam the ban hammer down. Also... The forum member does not get to make the line. The MOD makes the line.

A good MOD is consistent in the punishments handed out. Order has to be maintained for forums to thrive.

Well, so far everything is fine, so let's keep it that way.
A Mod is someone who won't be bias about people, for example, what team they cheer for or their views.

There's no reason to flame this thread. It's just comments on what we think it takes to be a good MOD. I've posted on a lot of forums over the years. I've seen some really well run forums and others that I left after just a few posts.

The quality of the forums begins with the owner and the MODS.

Correct...however you know that the MOD issue has been a hot-button topic, so you should expect the worst and hope for the best.

BTW, I am an Admin myself on another board, so I have an idea on what it takes to be a good one. One of the biggest things is that you cannot play favorites nor hold personal grudges - whether they are long-time members, friends or mortal enemies, the rules must apply to them the same as everyone else. I have had to infract/ban long-time members on my board because they simply would not follow the rules or would deliberately break them. No one person is above the integrity of the board or it's admins/mods.
