i dont know about others..but ya i enjoy being a mod...actually it doesnt make much difference to me...even if i wasnt a mod, i would have still been in the section and made topics..so why not do it with some power
and the trouble makers that i have seen are nothing compared to these celeb bashing or fighting one's.
but then i think members too have some responsibility...if you are not in DT doesnt mean you can say anything to anyone..if there are certain rules in a section...wat is so hard to follow them? its when the members dont follow some rules that mods have to warn them again and again and members feel that mods have some personal enemity towards them. if you want to say something regarding a fellow member, a celeb or even DT members..there are better ways of saying things.
i am not saying whatever the DT members do is right ....but there are different ways of handling things by different people....all you have to do is try and follow the rules as much as possible...and if still you think there's something wrong report to the other DT members..but obviously with some proof.
I agree...the GD sections are so peaceful!
I dont even feel like im a mod there...despite making sticky's & posting up contests and stuff, im pretty much a regular member there! I've made many friends (who dont suck up to me)
