You can't compare a tech related forum like that to a military forum like this one, it's two different worlds to moderate them....
The worst thing that could happen there is that two "geeks" starts to argue about who's got the biggest harddrive, but in here the discussions usually ends up in that my country can crush yours any day, and 50 other members jumps in on each side, and then all h**l breaks loose..

On that forum they also use use a user ranking system, so each member can actually act as a moderator by assigning positive or negative points to other members (based on their posts)

One other reason why we have several mods here is that most of us work full time in the military (or other places), so we can be gone on exercises, courses etc. for days/weeks at the time, so we have to make sure that at least one or two of us are available in the cyberworld while the rest are away saving the world (or something like that)...

Hi Redleg,

Then you haven't seen the flames rage Redleg .................you don't know how ugly it gets when two geeks argue .

And yes you are Absolutely correct about Points thing they are called Antipoints........JP started a Concept called Self moderation where Members collectively Moderate the forums..........memebrs can themself ban other Members , Close Threads etc by assigning Antipoints..................but it's not related to Number of Posts...............you have to earn them by posting quality posts........other member assing you Points for your post...

And yes it's True no two things are alike ..............and could require different level of moderation.............i was just commenting on 2 mods for 10 memeber thing didn't mean to compare these two Fourms literally............you people are doing a good job here keep up the good work.

just the atmosphere is a bit too tense for my liking

Cheers

I agree that it can (unfortunately) be that sometimes.

But the nature of many of the threads in here forces us to tighten the rules a bit sometimes, especially in the military related discussions.
The discussions have got way out of lines too many times in the past, especially the my-country-will-beat-your-country-anyday-blindfolded threads...

but my country will beat your country anyday blindfolded, one hand tied behind the back, and still make it home for dinner....

I'm mainly looking for non-US now, to spice up the international aspect of the forum..

DTop is replacing another US moderator, so he's not really "stealing" the non-US moderator position..
