Keeping as a subforum (like Q&A, Events, and Mechanics Corner) would also prevent it from showing up on the front page, so that's a thought as well. I have to tentatively agree with the idea that sometimes you really do just need to feel like you're being heard, even if no one actually cares all that much.
Not me, I fully admit to that much. It'd have to be someone who is a stickler for the rules almost to a fault, who doesn't mind explaining themselves, has the ability to shrug off grudges, and (I don't think) would mind the work involved.Xenthos comes to mind.

Keep in mind too it has to be someone willing to sift through the rants group in the first place!My concern about doing it by org though is that if someone orghops, suddenly one org is 'losing out' on a mod and another has two. A good idea in theory, but I think it'd be hard to sustain.
I don't think there would be any extra advantages if there was someone from each org or not just work. That and I am pretty sure that a good many people have alts in many orgs so that really doesn't matter. The real worry is having to deal with a org zealot. Who shows after the fact they can't separate IC from OOC and over moderate anyone from an opposing org/or even someone who goes against what they think their org RP should be. Or how RP/Combat should be handled.I honestly don't know why we don't have player mods, but I have a feeling that of some of these reasons might just be part of it. So something to consider.
Lerad said:I do think a rants sub-forums is a good idea, though. If all goes well, the people I dislike will keep posting there (and keep getting banned) so I don't have to read their posts in the normal forums. Make it happen, please.
Only thing that I can really add to my previous post is that I would be worried about treating certain posters (one in particular) fairly. It could lead to either under or over moderation of that individual, and I might be more comfortable referring "questionable" things they post to a higher authority for judgement. So please keep that in mind (it would probably be good to have something in place like that for any moderators you select, if any).
