Forum out of control

I'm fairly new to the board and active in the Tippmann forum primarily. Our moderator "Slim" hasn't been on since May 16th, so we're going on 2 weeks.

He has never even made a rules thread within the forum, in fact I don't even think he owns a Tippmann Marker.

I'm not a moderator, or administrator, just a member so this makes it even more annoying to me. Just take a look in the forum, we have members posting their own personal marker threads saying like "Check out my A-5" when we have a picture thread, we have repitition posts non-stop, questions not even regarding Tippmann markers, questions on Barrels and Air systems when they have a seperate forum, flaming and spamming within posts, along with useless posts more than the useful ones.

It's not my place to tell anyone how to do their job, after all it's all of you guys who made this possible but whoever is modding the forum just isn't doing their job, it's almost discouraging to me to even post here because there is a particular "elite" group that feels their answers are the only way to go when half the time they're wrong or not even helpful to the original post.

Anyway point being is we need to get another moderator in their, slim just isn't cutting it and it's chaos in there. There are alot of people that need assistance in that forum, Tippmann is highly related to a newbie marker and newbies need help. It's hard to help them out when there is no order within the forum, or rules enforcement for that matter. I'm extremely active in the Tippmann forum at www.pbreview.com and moderately active in PBnation.com so I know how the whole forums system normally functions and this just isn't it.

I just thought I would bring this to the attention of all the administration and moderators hoping that something can finally be done (this isn't my first comment about the board) to put the Tippmann forum back on track. If there is anything I can do to help I'd be more than happy to but one can only do so much.

Thank you for reading that long post, you guys rock.

You're right. Let's ban all the Tippmann n00bs.

we are working on the mod situation. Slim has slimmed down his posting and is being replaced. I see all your problems as being major. Alot of the members never visit a section like that so unless you make a small complaint the admins and supers will get on the problem....

How do you become a mod?

Just curious. What are the qualifications.

I'm trying to knock some of the crap outta there, whether or not anyone will actuall listen to me is another story. The Tippmann forum is becoming one hell of a mess. I know Slim does the AGD forum as well, but that one isn't very active and the users that go there typically arent your typical n00b.

well one thing is, usually you have to be a supporter before you become a mod, and i believe they probably have a few people lined up as mods as we speak

I'm guessing they're working on another mod for the Kingman section too? We need one.

christian is gone now for a few weeks thanks to computer problems. Im sticking around for as long as I feel is needed. New mods are being looked at cause we do need them. Slim kinda just walked out. its good to have other stuff going on but he really should have said something.

Something needs to be done. I'm sure shorthanded staff doesn't help much either.

I don't know about the Tippmann forum, since I only visit there when I need help for a friend, but Kingman doesn't need a mod, really. Thanks to several veteran members, such as Fiki and Dawg. Making a certain one of them mods, though, would insure that they would stay there? *hint hint*
