Default 10 rules for being a bad moderator

10 rules for being a bad moderator

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Far from being a set of rules these are some guidelines written by the senior administrator at the
The Admin Zone.com
(Kentaurus) He wrote about "how to be a bad moderator", they don't cover every topic and is only an approach of what not-to-do.

1. Don't visit the forums you are moderating often. Twice a month is enough. Nobody cares.
2. Don't start new threads at your forum. That's the users' responsibility. You are only there for editing and deleting threads.
3. Argue with users as much as you can. You don't have anything to loose since you are the moderator. Never bring personal matters to private messages. And remember that your opinion is the only one that counts.
4. Don't respect the other members, make fun of them. If they make spelling errors then criticize them, if they have a poor or unargumented opinion destroy them with words. If they ask for help about using the forum don't help them.
5. If nobody answers a thread don't answer yourself, the user didn't wanted an answer anyway.
6. If a user makes a dupe thread in the forum don't be nice, it's the users? fault not to know the 40+ pages that the forum has in search of a similar thread. And never ever give him a link to the content he is searching for.
7. Don't edit the bad words in posts. Fights are fun!
8. If a user is misbehaving ban him immediately, don't try sending him a private message or a warning, it's useless.
9. Close all the threads you want. Users love to see closed threads.
10. A way to be cool is to talk about the private forum threads in the public forum. Administrators love the fact that you tell all the users about the content of the private threads.

Feel free to comment on them or add any that I am missing. Remember that the purpose is to be a really bad moderator.

The above thread in no way is a reflection of our guys. We've been here a year and there hasnt been the need to close any threads nor has there been any inflammatory arguments. This is a great board with a great bunch of members and moderators. We can all be proud of that. 8)

HAHAA. Thats funny stuff. Good list.

True though, we havent had a single Disturber yet. Thats pretty good. There are a couple boards I have Admin'd over the years that have a pretty good record of starting up and going awhile before the first non-Desirable shows up lol. Geezum, sometimes it gets to the point where I wish someone would act up! LMAO

Could be because we all display pictures of our ugly a**es, and they know that if someone started acting up, we'd all find out where they live and kill them like dogs. hahaha.
