All these troll attacks have just emphasised how much the mods need the power to close registration. Even if you don't give it to all of us, at least give it to some of the mods. Eg: Helljumper, Blixtstorm and Ghost.
I'm tired of having to ban every new member that signs up, having to remove evry single pornographic and sick and twisted gory post and so on.
Don't get me wrong, It's a privelage to be a moderator for this site and I enjoy it but it's an inconvenience to be expected to ban hundreds of people and delete many posts between us.
The night before my ICT AS level exam I was up late trying to get rid of these 4chan trolls.

So yeah, we'd appreciate it if you could find a way to give us this power.

This is really getting out of control. These images are just sickening.

If us mods do get this power, I would put my hand up since I am on the other side of the world from a lot of you guys which means I am online and moderating when a lot of you are sleeping. Could come in handy one day.

I agree, we need people in different time zones.

For example:

Pacific - ghost23 and maybe a new one...?

European - DDD and me (Blixtstorm) since we are almost always on.

American - Master chief and HellJumper, preferably a one on each side of the continent.

Yeah, just like one from each major section of the world. That would work perfectly.

There is a trade off for this, sure you can stop the trolls, but if registration is only open for a short time, how can legitimate users have a chance at joining. That is, if they escape the mods mistaking them for trolls.

I keep on saying, just limit registration to 3 per day. We would get less trolls, and non trolls would get a chance to join.

This seems like a good direction but I would make it 5-10, if possible

Well even if we leave it open, then if a legitimate user wants to join but lots of trolls are pouring in then we'll end up banning the legit person along with them, which certainly wouldn't be a good start for them. Whereas if we keep registration open until the guest count rises and then temporarily close it, that would do the job fine.

No, limits wouldn't help. For every legit user wanting to joing there's probably like 20 trolls.
Limiting to 3 wont solve anything.

We need either: joining only by request.
or
mods with power to close and open registration at will.

Yes! I agree with both of you.

Brilliant plan. That's a great way to supervise the forum. Having 2 per time zone is perfect.

Who else comes from a Pacific time zone? Maybe if they're reliable Mld can promote them to Mod status?
I want Jubjub to be made a mod Razz

Good idea. My time zone is central. I used to be pacific before moving out of state.

Fair enough. Now we need to see if Generalmld can do anything about it. Would definately take the Republic to the next level.

Well, the problem with limits is that, the legitimate users would never be in becuase the trolls would take up all the slots. Unless there was more to your idea then that, Stigma.

The ability of mods to close registration is not a good idea since the mods will only keep it closed and the forum will not gain anyone, as far as I am concerned.

Also, even if new members join, it would be in the middle of a troll attack, this actually can work since mods could just ban the trolls, but the problem is that it is obvious that mods do not read the posts of people who join (they banned 3 users who wanted to legitimately wanted to join, and whose posts clearly showed they were not trolls).

I say we keep the one we have now, but actually have the mods read the posts first before banning them.

@ Triple D, Jubjub would be an excellent mod regardless, but I don't think he is in the Pacific timezone.

Ezek, I agree with you about the way trolls would take up the slots
but as for mods being able to ban, no we wouldn't keep it closed all the time, quite
the contrary in fact. Currently it is alway closed
but once in a while mld opens it but leaves it open all day so trolls have a whole day to realise that and to all arrange a time to troll here. Well, if mods can open and close registration we can keep it open and if a mod online sees the guest count rising in ridiculous amounts then he can close it until it dies down and make a global announcement saying registration is temporarily closed and giving apologies to those who want to use the forum properly.
We will still get trolls, yes but if we close registration when the guest count gets high then there will be no problem. When it's open a few will make it in but they can be banned no problem.

And yeah I wasn't saying jubjub Is pacific, just saying he's on a lot and that's a great advantage. Razz

@DDD and Ezek, I think what DDD said about having it open and letting mods close it when guest numbers rise would be a good idea. And if you guys, and MLD obviously, want me to be a mod I can. I have my laptop sitting on the table in front of my couch at all times on the XBR site, so when I am gaming I refresh the site every so often. And I am gaming alot Razz but if you wanted me to be a mod, I would be honored.

Okay fine, but still, even in a troll attack, actually read the users posts/wait for them to post before banning them, 3 legitimate users were banned becuase of mods not doing this.

lol.Have you been on the forum when this was happening.Theres like 500 guests online.Trolls posting continuously.New members every 2 seconds
It is physically impossible for the mods to look at posts before making a decision
I think you should have some some sympathy for the mods.Its hard to keep up the volume of trolls i imagine

The 3 members can join again some other time.We should combat the 500 hundred posting gay porn and spamming the forum with stupid meme posts

I was on the forum, there were about 100 members created, the rate of new accounts was not as fast as that I recall. It is also not impossible, I was a mod on another site during a troll attack with nearly the same circumstances and I had perfect time to read some posts, and decide whether or not the person was legitimate or not, and delete threads.

Also the people who want to join have no choice but to join during an attack, since it is the only time registration is open.
