    I agree with the idea suggested in the above post for the mod shop.

    And I also think that we should look into making the modshop a moderated forum to make sure that no requests get put into the wrong sections, mods are released in the correct sections and that they follow the template properly.

    This would stop any argumentative posts, off-topic posts, etc. But we would probably need some mod mods.

    If you do think about this idea, then a modshop verified usergroup could be made so well behaved members don't need their posts moderating in the modshop.

    And also a side thought, if the modshop does take on the above structure then couldn't it help with the server load? Members and guest wouldn't have to make so many database queries to get to the section that they want. They'd have to go through one or two pages as opposed to 3 or 4 pages which all have a list of threads in each.

    Love - Most thing actually. I can't really find many things wrong. This site makes us car-loving, tdu-loving, goat washing people feel normal. This is my escape, as as it may be lol

    Dislikes - The mod shop needs organizing.

    Wants - A life, but I suppose you can't provide that for me.
    U mad bro?

    This sounds great; however remember that the moderators must be in completely different time zones and such. Right now the active moderator user base is mainly from GMT (UK) and surrounding countries. I think there needs to be some new Mod Mods from other places. Since I come from a larger joint, I can safely say that this method works very well in keeping the place under control. They make sure the Moderator user base is well spread out to keep maximum control possible at all time.

    Other than that, I agree with the ideas you've mentioned.

    We have actually been scouting for International mods since about 2 years but unfortunately nobody has really stepped up on our radar, it's a constant question between me and the Staff.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Thanks, we've only just started though and you may find some unexpected irks while we get everything sorted. The physics section isn't ready to go live yet and the templates, READ FIRST's, tutorial threads, forum permissions etc still have to be done. They'll be done later today though as I want it done for the weekend.

    Appreciate the feedback and like I always say, tell us what you think as we are one of probably few communities that do listen to what our members have to say.

    This is only the start!

    What about doing away with requests??

    Just let the Mods come out with whatever they come out with?

    I don't know that much about what goes on in the PC section but yeah. It would bring down the number threads.

    If the request section is gone everyone will pm modders for requests!

    There is two type of request.
    One that can be done,because guy founded source,and second that can't be done because no one in the world have model/sound/whatever and don't wants to bother with that.
    Request section reduces the spam in the mod section/modders inbox,but in any other way it is useless.Simply modders don't look at request section.

    I did think about that after I made that post that modders would have 46414693 PM's in their inbox...

    7H!5, I'm assuming by the context of the sentence is "This".

    What about having a Moderator for the Mod section? I think I read some banter about this in the CB a couple of days ago but I think its a really good idea.


    Editzzz: Someone already mentioned it up there somewhere.. But oh well!

    Suggestions via PMs would be appreciated. I/we have a few people in mind but that's it.

    Mod Mods are something we really want to have again, picking people for it though is proving tough as hell.

    If you ever look around for a helpful member, I would be glad to do that. I mean, as much as I think I've been here for a long time, I've never really contributed that much to this place, have I?

    I'd love to help out as well but probably not in the mod section. I haven't ever used a mod from here and I hardly go in that section. But I know Jazzi would probably be picked before me and I also think Nick is a great person to have. He's very nice and always there to help.
