  • Mod inactivity issue

    so I've been here for a while, and I think there's an issue - there's barely any modding here. I mean, most mods on the site are not active anymore. I only think of Egogoyo, Topper, Joey and maybe a little more on this site. But my point is that most mods now are inactive.

    I think the NK forums should have some new mods because they really needs some more.

    Agree - there are too many (sometimes long) periods of time in which no moderators are active.

      yeah, there are a lot of situations now where I need a mod/admin to report stuff and one is online for a long periord of time. That way a lot of trolls can come and there's nothing to do about them.

          The way I see it, there isn't a need for new mods.. yet. What little problems as for general support are easily answered by me, or another user. [Y'all gotta be quicker than me, haha!] I hardly see any problematic users around, and the overall activity of the forums is too slow for any need for additional moderators.

          Mods who are truly inactive should think twice about if they are up to the job, for if not they can be replaced with more qualified individuals.
          There's absolutely nothing suspicious about me.. Carry on.

          How many towers can a keeper keep if a keeper can keep other keeper's towers they kept?

            no need for actual mods? I suggest you to look again. Besides from Aaron and Topper, I don't see who is active.

            and no matter if the forums going slow, it can't remain like that.

            If you say no need new mods, name another active mod besides Aaron and Topper.


            A lot of the mods are inactive - Jason, Special K, Neo Wolf, QuantumApocalypse and more.

              Alright, I checked the entire member list: Which is 4,193 registered users. Out of those users, about 80-85% are inactive [less than 20 posts ever], so that brings down the list to about 630 "active users".

              Out of those users there are 10 moderators, TWO of those are Aaron and Rohan. The other 8 moderators are:
              chocolatepanda, egogoyo, Jason, JoeyRainstorm, Jony9001, QuantumApocalypse, SOUP, and Topper.

              Jason, Special K, Neo Wolf, chocolatepanda, Jony, are confirmed gone. Quantum is a lurker, but very active on Discord.

              That leaves us with.. 5 mods that are semi-active. That's about 126 members per moderator.

              So yes, doing these calculations, I do believe we need more moderators soon in time for the Bloons TD 6 surge. You may be right, but it is not our business to be in.

                Interesting calculations, but the math is a bit off... (where did you get your info-fake-news from?)
                I would not put too much credibility into this rumor.

                btw, what has been so urgent to attend to lately: what am I missing here?
                ...none of you have reported to me anything, or is there a broken-PM not going through?

                  Unfortunately that BTD6 surge is a big uncertainty, as mobile games don't seem to attract members to the forums as well as web games do/did. Therefore, if Ninja Kiwi needed mods due to increased activity, they would probably do it AFTER the surge, and not before.

                    Look, here's the quickest answer to this thread: Moderation and overall structure of this forum is to be determined by Administrators in the appropriate times. This thread just seems to want to instigate the Administrators, and current Moderators; Possibly creating a problem that was never even there.

                    If this forum needs new moderators, it would be discussed by the admin team, and not us. If you feel there's a problem with reports not being dealt with correctly, discuss that privately, no need to bring us all into the situation.

                      The point is: the OP wrote that there is an "issue".

                      What is the urgent need for more mods today?
                      I don't see where the problem is.... what am I missing?
                      The forums seems rather civilized lately, and has been for a while: right?

                        The problem isn't that there's not enough mods, it's that the mods that are there are inactive.

                          Sorry, but:

                          #1 how would you know if a mod is "active" but quietly lurking, or just inactive?

                          #2 Are you reporting any problems to any mods, and feel you are not answered properly? if so, can you PM to me in that regard please (I would like to know more about that).

                          #3 despite everything discussed in this thread so far: no one is talking about any actual "issue": where are the problems in our current forums the would require more attention??

                          If your point is to have more mods, just for the sake of having more mods: I fail to see the logic behind that.

                            the problem is, I can't find a mod to discuss with. I haven't seen even one that Scootaloo mentioned that are active.

                            the only ones I see active are Aaron and Topper, but the rest? QA only seen in discord. So as SOUP.

                              and to answer this - you posted pretty obvious things. Obviously more mods is decided by the admins.

                              I created this thread because I haven't seen active mods besides Aaron and Topper, and when they're both gone, there are no mods around. This thread is just like the suggestions for BTDB, BTD5 etc. It's a SUGGESTION for the admins to consider.
