    Does anyone agree with me on this? The mods do so much so we can enjoy BYC. It might be hard, but we should try. If this is a bad idea please tell me. I have ideas but I won't share them until some ppl (especially some mods and Nifty) say it a good idea.

    What are you angling for, Kurt? [​IMG]

    Seriously, it is a thankless job to mod a forum like this. You are right about that. While modding can get a tad draconian at times, I know there are overall good reasons for it.

    To be the one who makes these decisions is always going to be a job with few perks and even less appreciation.
    We should tip our hats to those folks with the courage to do it; without feedback, without reward.

    I agree.

    The mods could take a day off and any inapropriate behavior would get you immediatly suspended. It would be a little hard but maybe if all of BYC helps we can make it happen. The mods deserve some appreciation. The administrators are great too.

    Someone's fishing for a new title I think!

    I think the Mods should all get drunk and randomly ban people. [​IMG]

    I owe the rest of the Mods a 2 day vacation now...but not all at the same time, of course! [​IMG]

    Nawww, not you GF. Seriously, I was a mod at an eZboard back in the day, and that was my forced exit... because I was drunk banning.

    Needless to say, I'm not a drinker anymore. [​IMG]
