Moderator Appreciation Week :)
Moderator Appreciation Week.

I love the sound of it! Our moderators on this website do A LOT for us. They screen custom content so you don't get viruses, offer advice both personal and Sims related, one is always available, and they are always there for the modthesims community. I don't know if this is already a thing or not, but I think our mods need a little love. So why not dedicate a week to their awesomeness.

I think this should be a thing.

Good moderating is a very difficult job. Sort of like being a cop.

Some cops are good and the neighborhood go to person and are loved by all.

Some cops shoot you to death for blinking your headlights at them or otherwise not respecting there authoritae.

We are fortunate to have the former kind of moderators. yes, give them a Moderator Appreciation Week!

OP, thank you for starting this topic. The work that the mods do is often overlooked. How about an ongoing moderation appreciation thread? We could post our thanks in. The staff here does an amazing job keeping order in the forums so that we may all enjoy them. I am grateful for their work, their patience, and for the many times I've witnessed them act not just as moderators, but as compassionate humans.

There definitely should be some way for us to say thanks for all that the mods and administrators and Delphies do for the site... but what would that really look like? Just a thread full of people saying "thanks" is nice, but it seems kind of small-scale... I wonder if there's anything bigger that we could do.

How can an appreciation week 'enforce' the work the moderators do?

I think it would be worthwhile to say thanks once in a while I agree.

Some forums have horrible mods that rule like dictators. The mods here are like friends, and many of them are like role models with extensive knowledge of the game and modding and I love it! You know the mods love what the do and it makes you love being here.

Thank you, moderators :D

I say no. Before you chop my head off hear me out. Do we really need 7 days to appreciate them, when we have 365? If you want to show your support toward the moderation team at MTS, then do so everyday by respecting them and abiding their authority.

Pff, why would they need that. What do they do at all? Lazy punks.
Ney just kidding, I really appreciate their effort and love they put in MTS, but I also agree with HarVee. Also, howdo you think to arrange something like that?

InFeRsCoPeR of the Google+ Polandball community, and the horrible community. Tried to challenge his moderating views, and I as subject to so much abuse, I called it quits.
Also, I'm mixed with MTSstaff, really. Seems bot-like.

Hm, OP is a test subject with 23 posts? Suspicious

Still I totally agree. I don't see them that much anymore, since I check my own submissions these days. I'm glad we have them, otherwise this place would be all rubbish I'm sure.
