Does the forum need more moderators?

I've been a member of a number of forums for a few years now and one thing they always have is active moderators. Mods are active and constantly keep the peace to keep the forum a nice place to visit.

I've noticed over the 10 months I've been a member of this forum that it seems to suffer a lack of moderators.

Jaywal does an awesome job but obviously he/she doesn't live his or her life on here.

My question is should the forum have more moderators to help keep the peace and be active around the clock?

As well as the snarky replies I'll receive I'd be interested to know what other forum members think

Best wishes and Happy Christmas one and all.

  • I wish I had a good snarky reply. :c
    I think it's complete bull shark that @Jaywal is alone, and that the developers aren't present. It's not fair to the players or to him that they aren't here to answer for their mistakes. As a result, I think he gets an unfair amount of flak for being the only 'authority' on these forums. The attitude of "well, I can't **** and moan to the developers, so I'll get at this guy!" is unfair and unwarranted.
    That said, to answer your question, I think the forums could use some more help, but that should be someone at EA who can do something other than reply with "We're working on it™" or "Soon™" or "Our team is looking into it™"

    That's pretty much the point of my post. It seems to me like @Jaywal is alone in his/her attempt to keep the forums a place you'd like to visit.

    I agree and it's probably in the wrong thread but it just amazes me that this forum isn't more actively managed. The moderation on this forum seems a little..passive

  • I volunteer to become a moderator. No specific reasons :blush:

    I've enjoyed reading your threads over the past 10 months and the forum is worse off without people like you and briantd75

    Thanks for the support. However I do have to enforce the guidelines.

    "No discussion of moderation."

    Therefore I will go ahead and close this thread.

    -Jaywal
    P.s. I'll pass this along.
    May the force be with you.
