They are probably somewhere else, moderating or perhaps sleeping. (They’ve been known to sleep sometimes. Who does that!?)
There will NOT always be a moderator available. And if you don’t know by now, we let a lot more fly here in the forums than other places. It’s only fair that you have a safe place to say FUCK. (Okay, maybe that won’t fly, maybe it will. It’s a jungle in here. )
But also as you know, the internet has trolls.
So if you need to summon a moderator, there are “key words” that will get our attention quicker than others.
I won’t list them here though, because trolls will exploit this trick.
So next time you need a moderator, ask for one, and include a keyword, say for instance, “Mods we need you. Troll”. ***It might not appear for you to see, but we will see it.
We might not get there right away, but we will come as soon as we can.
Edit: Thank you all for bringing “trolls” to our attention. You all rock! Keep up the great work.
DFTT: Don’t Feed the Trolls
It really makes our life easier and faster for us to clean up if YOU DON’T respond to trolls. Try your best to keep scrolling and don’t engage in nonsense. Once we catch wind of a problem, we will work to remove all parts of the conversation, including those comments from legitimate users that are engaging with bad users. It’s not always you, and if you don’t participate, we can clean faster.
