Here it is BUSTies and BUSTers, a poll to vote on whether we want moderators to help us with the ongoing troll problem.
I've kept it simple and covered the basics (you are only allowed three poll questions) and we can always have additional polls for who should be moderators -if applicable, depending on poll results- and other grievances later.

Please add any comments, suggestions and constructive comments about having moderators below. Perhaps we should have an open discussion (with turbojenn and quantumspice weighing in, if possible) about the pros and cons of moderators before we vote our gut instinct (although feel free to vote if you're already convinced/have heart set on it).

Who knows whether LoungeLady will even listen to us and act on any decisions we collectively make but there's only one way to find out!

Happy voting.

eta: okay, I've just realised Q2 is a little unclear answer-wise: let's say that yes is you do want across board powers, no is you only want sensitive thread powers and maybe is obviously maybe to them having full board access.

~tiny issue~ one thing about superfluous new threads is that other threads sometimes get bumped right off the board. now this doesn't happen often as valid threads that are seeing action stay near the top BUT sometimes when you go looking to recover an older thread it's gonzo and there's some lovely fundy bullshit or other nonsense taking up the space where it could be instead.

as far as da mystery mod, i think that sucks. what kind of terrible secret would that be to have to have? and how tempting to tell just one friend here, only one who would never let it slip out to anyone else. just one. ok, maybe two. etc.
and it would change that poster's experience here as well. i realize that that's something that some members here would be willing to take on but i think the potential to ruin this for them is huge. it's like doing something that you love as a hobby for work and having all the joy sucked out of it (like when i sewed for a living, gah). i am not willing to put one of you up on the sacrificial alter of deleting power. sorry, i'm not. i like this place the way it is and all of you in it.
i really appreciate how we collectively deal with trolls and other crap. with pie and bonbons and talk of eyeliner and other fun stuff. it's our version of "kill 'em with kindness" and i think it works great. it sure has brought us closer together. it's had an affect on how i deal in real life too so thanks for that girls (and the occassional boy).

i would LOVE to see the powers that be take some of our suggestions a little more seriously. like increasing the number of posts before being able to start new threads, like re-installing the forum greeting that tells posters where to go and gives some meager guidelines. like pinning a few headers for us (in the sensitive threads especially). and most importantly RESPONDING to reports in a timely fashion, dealing with garbage right away, deleting posts, threads and users, and sparing us the agony.
