Topic: Kongregate / Why is OT still open?

Originally posted by ArcadianFire:

Many of the users in this thread are claiming that Off-Topic acts as a sort of containment unit for all of the less desirable people that feel the desire to use the forums, keeping them out of the hair of those who would rather hold a more serious, mature discussion.
However, I disagree with that sort of mentality, especially given the fact that it only helps advocate the awfulness that tends to go on in Off-Topic, letting them think “Oh, it isn’t bothering anyone else on this website, so it’s fine”.
Off-Topic was designed for people to hold less serious discussions that don’t relate to any of the other sub-forums made available on this website, not to contain the undesirables in one location.
In short, that argument is entirely invalid.

In the last year or so, Off-Topic has been severely lacking in regards to the moderation.
We’ve only one truly active moderator, Mmebunneh, and she is constantly attacked for whatever reasons the people of the sub-forum see fit.
The “moderators are bad” mentality has become widespread, causing moderation to become relatively ineffective due to the fact that the majority of the users view the moderators as “the Man” and they’re trying to revolt for the purpose of opposing “the Man”.
Perhaps if the administration were to give a more well-liked user moderator abilities, the userbase would not lash back the way that they tend to do.
This is difficult, however, because the majority of the well-liked users are pretty rebellious themselves.
My solution to this would be ghost moderators — people given the abilities of moderators, minus the predominant “M” that makes the moderators so easy to pick out from the crowd.
This would prevent the hatred towards specific moderators from occurring, considering no one would know who the moderators actually are.
The only issue this would bring about is the inability to know who to go to with a forum-related issue.
Otherwise, I see this working out well.

Off-Topic is not nearly as bad as it is now when it is being properly moderated.
I do not blame the userbase for the essential anarchy that’s occurring in Off-Topic.
I feel most sub-forums would be at least a bit crazy without proper moderation, including Serious Discussion.
With no limits on what users can do, they feel inclined to go to the extremes simply because they can.
The entire issue here is moderation.

OT wasn’t designed for containment, but that’s what it has inadvertently become. The trolls were made there and they stay there now. I can’t argue with your stand on moderation, but OT has been heavily neglected and was pretty much fed to the trolls when Mme became our last semi active moderator. What we really need is less anarchy and mindless rebellion, and actually contact the higher ups to replenish our supply of mods.

OT is a quarantine, essentially. We will savage all other forums and chats and make their existence as pointless as ours if OT is gone. Destroying our forum will prove to be a grave mistake.

You don’t have enough decency to wear shirts, let alone own them.

This is where you went wrong. Never ask OT to think logically.

Mods can’t change points.

I’m not here to argue technicalities, smartass. Mods in this context are synonymous to admins.
