    Regarding Minions...

    Ok, the minions in this section are starting to piss me off.

    You guys are walking around thinking you have all the power and trying to intimidate people and I am sick and tired of it.

    You guys answer a question someone has and then close the thread. You SHOULD NOT DO THIS. Other people may have other answeres. For example:

    On the thread 'Does MPGH make combat arms VIP?', one of the members said 'No, Minion close thread.' NO! YOU SHOULD NOT CLOSE THIS THREAD! I had more to add: 'MPGH does not have combat arms VIP at the momemt but they used to' is what I said. For all you know, that member could have been watching MPGH VIP videos on YouTube and them went to this website and saw there were no MPGH VIP hacks. If the thread was closed, the member would have been confused by the fact that someone said there were no VIP hacks but yet he was watching them on YouTube. The power of the thread close should only be used if the threads are:

    A) Breaking the rules (Advertisements, Flam thread). If it was a flam thread, it should be moved to the flaming section.

    B) Being asked to be closed by the thread creator.

    C) You are 100% certian that the question is answered.

    The first day that the minions went into effect, I saw about 60 or 70% of the threads being closed. In the past, I only saw about 5%! You guys have to stop abusing this power. You should not go into threads, read the posts, and then decide to close the thread or not, the thread close power should only be used if you have a red light moment (Woah, this thread is bad, it should be closed). If you see miscondut (threads getting off topic), you should tell them to stay on topic and try to start a new conversation that is on topic, not saying things like 'Get on topic or I will close thread.'

    The thread close power should only be used if you have a red-light moment.

    Also, you guys are walking around here like the big bully or the teacher that intimidates people.

    Derek, once I saw you post on a thread that did not have a virus scan: 'Virus scan in 10 minutes or I close thread.' You are not here to intimidate members, you are here to MODERATE the conversation.

    Moderate: kept or keeping within reasonable or proper limits; not extreme, excessive, or intense.

    That does not mean stop the discussion when it gets out of hand, it means to KEEP IT WITHIN REASONABLE LIMITS. It is your job to moderate, not to stop discussions.

    What I did was:

    Looked at the post, realized there was no virus scan.
    Posted 'Virus Scan pl0x'.
    Returned to thread in aprox. 30 minutes to see there was still no virus scan.
    Looked at the user and saw that he was not online.
    Then I looked ast the bottom and saw Derek's comment. He was not online, you can not expect people to log on when you want them too. If you were actualy concerned about the well-being of other members, you would have checked every hour-30 minutes to see if he was online and then PM him about your concern. You can't take the easy way out.

    The power of a moderator is both a great honor and a great responsibility. You are going around the forum representing MPGH. If people go around seeing shit mods, they will not get a good impression on the site. You guys have to step up to the plate and start acting profesional.

    Stop acting like your the only person that knows how to moderate. If the minions do something wrong, that's obama's problem. Not yours.

    Cool
    Someones a little butt hurt?? Sharpe, countless times I have gotten pms stating that your, "acting like a mod", "intimidating members", and just being a pain in the ass. That is one of the reasons why you were removed. Another reason why you were removed was because you weren't doing the job right. Matter a fact, I question your allegiance to mpgh. Your posts exemplify someone who hates hackers and hacks in general. Don't get it twisted though. It was not my choice totally. Arun and Dave had to have seen the same things that I was witnessing.

    That is why new minions were chosen. The previous group were, for the most part, inactive and not doing there jobs effectively. Like the people said above, "Attachments sitting there for 8 hours" and no virus scans to backup accusations or to prevent viruses. Multiple times I have had to clean up another minions error(approving viruses, closing threads that don't need to be closed).

    The new minions are inhuman(currently a cf minion) and BSG.Flash(ex-gfx member).
    Inhuman is known for his activity and dealing with attachments and helping members promptly. BSG.Flash has had experience "modding" the gfx section and he is active in the Combat Arms section. Derek will remain because he was the most active out of the last bunch and Dave, Arun, and I have felt like he was doing his job to the best of his ability.

    Now I say to you, stop the bitching. It is only justifying my decision of deminioning you and furthermore making you look bad in the process.
