Admod Appreciation

Recommended Posts

firewallflower

Discourse is good, constructive criticism is important, and nothing and nobody is perfect.

 

But at the end of the day, moderating/administrating on such a forum (or really, on any forum) is no easy task—and by and large, our admod team does an excellent, admirable job of balancing personal lives and feelings with official roles and responsibilities, making decisions, and upholding the ToS while promoting dialogue. And that's something that I think deserves much more positive credit than may often be given.

 

So let's all pause to recognize that these are volunteers who put a huge amount of time and energy into making and maintaining AVEN as the imperfect but wonderful slice of cyberspace that it is, and let's take a moment to just appreciate all they do. :)

 

So, to the admods:

You are all doing a amazing job with the tools you have. This forum would not be close to as user friendly if there was no one doing your job.

Awww, thanks so much! :D And just so you guys know, it's this community that keeps us coming back. If it weren't for all of you, we wouldn't have a reason to be here. At least for me, personally, I enjoy being on AVEN too much to want to leave.

I can't imagine that it's easy... 

 

I commend you guys for your commitment, tho. As someone who has two volunteer jobs IRL, not to mention work and school and personal stuff on top of that, I know how crazy it can be! :D

Most people probably aren't aware but mods tend to spend at least an hour a day (some much more) on here looking after their forums, and catching up on admods only and reports. They put a huge amount in and although it can sometimes from this side like they've made slightly crazy decisions there is a LOT of discussion that goes into decision making. And even if not everyone agrees they work hard to uphold the decisions made. 

 

So yes well done all our lovely admods.

Here is a little thank you to all Mods.

Your work is no piece of 🍰.

Instead of browsing just for fun, you may spend some of your time glued into some hot 💩 debates.

You all deserve a great big thanks for everything that you do here. Even when you're confronted with extremely stressful situations, you show composure and a level of dedication to being understanding and fair that's truly admirable. The amount of work you put into this community as volunteers blows me away.

 

I appreciate everything you do to help keep AVEN the wonderful little slice of the Internet that it is.
