As to Tuffty's comments that some posts are left for others that know more about that than others do. Let's say for instance their is a clan dispute on forum help. Let's say I see the report, I have experience with clans I used to run one for a time. I feel comfortable dealing with this post, so I do. Now lets review the same scenario where in this case I know nothing about clans, I don't trust my judgement that I'd know the best way to handle this situation, so I skip the report and move on to reports I do feel comfortable with. Waiting for a different F-mod who has the requisite experience on how best to proceed to deal with the situation. After it's been dealt with I can then return to see how it was dealt with.



Although I've always expected that because it's the most reasonable thing to do, it feels so comfortable to actually hear that.

I've seen cases where fmods skipped a report and did like 4 or 5 after it, before someone else came along to do that one report. I've also seen where they knew one required the attention of Jagex, and simply elevated.

The fmods do their job fairly well; if they didn't, they wouldn't remain a fmod for very long, as their actions do get reviewed. So rest assured, they try to respond to things correctly.

Lol this is not true.

Their actions do get reviewed, but the most that happens is that their individual actions get reversed.

In the immediate, yes. If it is a recurring problem, or they make REALLY bad decision(s), they do in fact lose their mod. The same goes for in game mods. I've seen people lose mod for using it improperly.

Obviously, everyone makes mistakes, so if they were de-modded every time one of their actions was reviewed and overturned, we'd have no mods left ;)

Anyway, we're going a bit off tangent of the original post here.

-------------------------------------

As far as the gap occurring, it is an unavoidable occurrence where a majority of the moderating is done on a voluntary basis. Even if they hired people to specifically cover those gaps, there'd still be gaps when those person(s) took a day off. It is just a fact of life, and I feel the current team does a fairly good job of catching up after the gap, so the existence of the gap does not bother me in the slightest.

We all try and minimize any gaps. But at times there are some. It's part of any forum really.

We can't ask the community not to post when there is no one looking after the forums lol.

Even when we had 100's of F-Mods we still had gaps. So the team we have now is doing an awesome job and getting backup from the CM team of Nick and Brandon. ;)

So fear not about any gaps. We catch up. :D
