People just want the mods to do better at their jobs. Look at Voldemort’s mod work as a guide on how to moderate the forum correctly. If you guys find it to be a pain then drop the position, I don’t think anyone would feel like they’re at a loss lol.
I think it’s worth remembering that our mods are volunteers who are giving up a significant amount of their own time for no reward to help the community, as such they deserve a bit of appreciation for their efforts.
Blizzard mods that you use as a reference are full time paid employees part of a large community team.
On the actual topic I fully support our mods actions, the simple fact is we're not going to let individuals fight all over our forums and once a thread has derailed sufficiently I have no problem with it being locked, it's not deleted so any information of value is still available to individuals who wish to view it.
I’m not comparing the mods themselves here to WoW forum mods lol. I simply said take a look at all the unfathomable they’ve had to go through, and then look at what the mods here have to go through. If anything I’m comparing them to Voldemort’s job as a mod who is the best moderator no doubt and other mods should use him as an example, or even the legend himself Muldar. Ik they’re here voluntarily but if they can’t do the job correctly and will cause nothing but problems with the community then they should consider dropping their position.
Any information of value inside a locked thread might as well be considered useless because it’ll get lost in the sea of forgotten threads. Instead of locking threads forcefully, let them die out on their own and clean up any messes created that way everyone can share their thoughts or final thoughts on the topic being discussed.
Not all the mods are in this spotlight, just a select few.
