  • Mods meal out for Xmas ?
  • weeksy
    Full Member

    Over on my forum i’ve arranged an afternoon out over Xmas for the Mods, to say thank you for the work.

    Any way we should/can do the same and all throw in a tenner for a nice meal out for them ?

    Mods work hard on forums and often are seen as the enemy rather than someone doing the dirty work no-one really wants.

    So… anything we can do ?

    That’s a lovely thought, I’d really appreciate it, I’m sure the others would too

    Just Giving sort of thing?

    That was my theory yeah… i don’t mind what format for payment they’d like it but obviously someone at STW Towers would need to jump in with that part.

    Are the mods not located in different areas? If so, will it be a meal-for-one for most of them?

    I have absolutely no idea who any of them are…. They don’t need to be in the same place, Mod 1 can go out at STW, Mod 2 go out with his missus, etc…

    But yeah, I’m up for chucking a few quid in towards a meal in, meal out, case of beer, coke and hookers, or something.

    (guessing a case of beer or just eat vouchers might work better if they’re in disparate locations, they’d likely need to share the others given recent inflationary pressures.)

    If its anything like when I moderated a FB group with 80k members on it, moderators are welcome to step away at any time (which I did because the inhabitants of the group were weapons grade douchebags mostly). I guess nobody forces a non-STW-employee to become a mod, its just a power trip/excuse to moan about how their work is undervalued etc.

    the mods on here do a good job and get little thanks

    i say this even having been on the wrong end of harsh moderator calls – because I probably deserved it 🙂

    I think TJ probably owes them all a lobster and fillet steak platter, washed down with a couple of bottles of ’62 Chateau Lafitte 😉

    Historically, the moderators usually got invited to the STW staff Christmas do. In practice the attendees were me and Drac, and occasionally one of the anonymods.

    The bullying victim got sent home and the bullies continued causing trouble until they left the school. You didn’t deserve it, TJ.

    Probably a daft question but is there a means to chip in yet? The Mods do do a thankless task, so more than happy to chuck some cash in to get split between them all to be spent on a meal/drinks/whatever they want, but I do keep checking back but haven’t seen the means of making a donation (which is probably not overly easy given they are probably located all over the place.

    Perhaps a single point for a donation and STW Towers collects it and then splits it between all the mods (no idea how many there are) and does something like a PayPal Gift to each of them so they all get their amount (or a bank transfer for whatever).

    We have covert mods lurking amongst the users?

    Blimey, where did that come from?
    I’m in a better mood than you and I’ve got a broken cock.

    Anyway, I think it’s a great idea personally.

    A tenner(Scotsman talking) theres a lot of people on here so that could add up to a fair amount. Less local curry house and more 5 courser at the Ritz, overnight accommodation inc.

    I’m ok with it, but cost of grub(buy yer own booze) and any excess goes to charity. Mountain rescue would be my choice there.

    Dinner for One is more a New Years tradition than a Christmas one, shirley.

    I’ll chuck in some dosh ( maybe not the full steak and lobster dinner as above tho 😉

    I ain’t sorting out the money tho.  I can barely manage my own.

    Posting on behalf of the mods:

    The mods have said thank you very much for your kind thoughts, but rather than take your money they’d love it if you’d all just play nice and make their lives easy 😉 If you really want to make a donation in their honour, I’ve asked them to pick some suitable causes. Will let you know what they pick when I’ve heard back from a few.

    That worries me, are we sure the mods are actually regulars on here.😁
