    A lot of forums are managed this way. Do you think AOL pays all of those people that are "monitors" in those chat rooms? No. You could give people that have been around a long time or submitted a lot of posts be the first people to be the moderators. Heck, it's not too hard, even with being new who are the guys who have been around for a while. I like the idea of the SPAM lock. That should be easy to implement.

    The other option would be to have a type of popularity vote for submitters. So if a "SPUD" gets on you could give him a thumbs down and if they got a certain amount of thumbs down marks, they would be suspended or removed. This doesn't get rid of the fact that they could come back with another user name (all blogs, forums face this problem), but it would also help IMHO.

      How to cook a spud

      Well, we can deep fry them like Frech Fries, Boil and than mash them, Wrap them in foil put them in a camp fire till they burn, Leave them in the closet and forget about them for a month, should be pretty ripe by than.
      Do you have any other ideas???

        And here all this time I thought you were referring to a problem with someone from P.E.I.

        So now the question has to be asked: How many threads have to be created regarding:

        1) how many complaints can be lodged against persons who are "guests" until approved by the WT; and

        2) how many times suggestions to "ignore" them have to posted?

        This topic is becoming more than just a little tiresome, particularly with the number of "dud" threads created in Its Name.

            when these types post, do not reply, at all, soon enough he'll tire of being ignored and the post will die of it's own accord, it'll only work if everybody plays along.

                The "just ignore the idiot" theory always sounds great on paper. But in reality, it will never work. There isn't a form in existance on the internet where that works. That is why there are forum moderators at any frequently visited forum... except this one. The moderators nip those problems in the but before they become an issue. But here, there is one group of administrators that show up once a week at the most and the place goes to hell.

                  The key here would be to give some of the forum "veterans" moderator status. Firehouse.com can choose who they would like, and I feel that a lot of the problematic threads can be nipped in the bud.

                          There IS a conspiracy thread running in the Off Duty section.

                          I would tell you where it is but then the Men In Black Sheep will find out.

                            I wouldn't have a problem with this as long as it takes two people to lock it down. That way there wouldn't be an issue with favoritism or anything.

                              Actually only a team of two could be construed as "favourtism", however a panel of three would likely suffice.
