    Question Why do Moderators rarely post?

    After people become mods, they suddenly stop posting. What's the reason?

    I only see Solsa and Zfert posting, just them 2.

    They prioritise doing their moderator jobs ingame over being active on forums.

    They are usually busy with work or school so they don't really have time to post as much

    I just visited her profile, she rarely posts. And Mrthadawee isn't a moderator.

    I think it's to prioritize their job as a moderator which is to spectate the forums and enforce the rules here. It seems they only post when they deem it necessary, and when I mean necessary I mean the stuff only mods can answer/reply. I'm just glad mrthadawee and AV8R was really active here on the forum during their moderator days tho.

    But hey, at least those who are helpful here on the forum are not overshadowed by them because of that. I think that's another reason, to find people who have potential.

    Boom!
    You got it spot on.
    Forums are similar to ingame when it comes to mod attention, if they post in a thread, suddenly they get a bunch of replies and literally anything they answer they get the thumbs up and credit for even if dozens of other people answered the same thing earlier (so that's why you see mods generally post "as others have said before me").
    Most of the moderating is really directed for the game, mods merely purge bad guys on the forums and may make a post or two to answer a question/stop drama.
    They are the original well timed farts. Only posting when needed... Silent but deadly :^)

    If more people only posted when their imput is really needed we'd have a lot more quality posts on the forums.

    I have to bring up another point here...

    Moderating is a purely voluntary job, meaning they are not required to contribute a set time and they do it for free.
    They can moderate when they have time. Of course, they are encouraged to spend a bit of time moderating. But the number one rule is that mods should NEVER let Growtopia get above real life. Hence why mods are laidback, often casual people.

    Mods get a lot of crap by the community for what they do, they endure through spam, hate, rumours, lies, drama, conflict and unwanted attention just to moderate. Mods really do need a passion for helping out Growtopia, if they didn't (and only wanted it for the power for example), they wouldn't last very long.

    You implied something similar to 'mods are required to be active'. Or that they shouldn't be mods if they can't be very active.

    If not, I threw out another point anyway :^)
