Let me get this straight, you think it is "OMG IMPOSSIBLE" to get people in here to moderate the forums without having them become involved with the people? Ya know what, what about someone with... oh I don't know... a life in the real world? Someone who isn't interested in making buddies online since their social needs are fulfilled else where. Perhaps we could get someone without an invested interested in Vocaloid. I moderate a forum as a part of my parent's business with little to no emotion or interaction with the members because I don't care about the topic and I know what my job is. I'm not there to be everybody's little buddy and chat it up. And I'm certainly not about to start conversations about buyer to buyer retail/wholesale. But I do my job extremely well. I check through the forums, I delete unwanted posts, e-mail warnings, and if warnings are not heeded then I follow procedure as set by the admin. Yes, it may not be happy dappy la-la land but I do my job fairly and well. (I'm not saying I could mod here. I couldn't since I have a vague interested in Vocaloid and know the members already.)
Tut tut, little man. This is a thread for suggestions, is it not? Why don't you stop being a mod and have Azure bring in a fresh face with clear instructions not to become friendly with members.
Me and Luka see a lot of things eye to eye, hence why we tend to agree on a lot of things. If she brings something up to me that needs me to say something, I'm going to say what I want to say. If that's a problem for you, then that's unfortunate.
I don't need anyone to defend me. I'm a big girl. Why I can walk and talk and all sorts of lovely grown up things! I assume Luka can too though I have no definite evidence of this. When you spot Luka getting in a spat why not let her sort it out for herself? She's a grown up. She can handle it. Don't let her come crying to you every time her mouth gets her jammed up. Or anyone for that matter! If I came running to you about some fucking ridiculous spat I'm having you had better tell me that it's my problem and you'll only step in if it begins to erupt. Not to tell my foe they are wrong or me that I am wrong. That simply we need to chill the fuck out. Sticking up for someone isn't being a good mod. It's just being someone's strong arm.
