    Default Are mods significant?

    I don't have anything against them, in fact, they are great people. But are they even significant? Like there are maybe 5 mods on at once and 17,000 players on at once. Do they even make a difference in the community? Is it even worth all the time and effort? Is it worth them being harassed every second of the day just so they could stop a few problems here and there? What I'm saying is, I don't think they make a difference here. They might solve some problems here and there but they are only people. There are sooo many more players causing problems that they can't handle them all. That's why so many of them quit. Yeah they cause no harm but they don'y do much either. They are all good and I respect them but with so many players, they don't have a big impact on the game. That's why people hate them. They can't take everything and solve everyone's problems. So the big question is,

    Are they significant? Do they actually make a difference big enough to help the game in big ways?

    Because they clearly have privileges, but they seem like regular players most of the time to me. They don't do much. I'm not saying that they should, I'm saying that they CAN'T.

    Yes, they are put here to be role models not surf worlds for hours on end trying to end the un-endable

    They are the perfect Growtopians, what every growtopian should aspire to become.

    They have a job. Look after the game. They weren't made to be role models as much as they were made to "moderate" the game.

    They are awesome, but they can't moderate the game much anymore.

    They have a bigger psychological affect than a physical one.
    They ban people to plant fear in wannabe scammers that's their porpous.

    Moderators do help, but there is a big chunk of the scamming community they miss because of their stupid "we can't ban if we don't see it rule" which ends up getting bent into "If we don't see it, we will take every single bit of proof we have of this scammer, screenshots and all, and dump them in the trash." There was a scammer on the forums a while back who had scammed 10+ people and was never banned from the game, only muted on the FORUMS.

    Casinos and drop games get punished, but scams that are not that simple are not even looked upon.

    They stop casinos and drop games but like 2 percent of them.

    You have a point. The moderators lack in numbers and they don't seem to like going into difficult stuff.

    I remember Hamumu posting the activity feed of bungbi and it was absolutely mind blowing how much work they do behind the scenes.
    I tried looking for it but it was deleted.

    There is only 1 way to make them significant and that way is to make more moderators. About 120-150 I guess. That would be 7x time effective.

    Yeah... That was my fault. BUT! If I were to go through her activity feed and WHY they were banned, it would show drop games and casinos only. When you say behind the scenes, moderators only go visit drop games, not stop the big scammers.

    Doesn't matter. I don't think they stop even half of the drop games and stuff going on.

    It's great that they do a lot to stop them and that they do a lot of work. But it still doesn't make a difference. They try so hard for nothing.

    Yeah the more the better. But still, 17,000 players online. That's too much for even that much. But for 5? Please.

    I am pretty sure there are even more than 150 players who are willing to help community and who are not sucked into greed

    Personally I don't need them but tons of players do. It's up to you to decide for yourself if you need them.
