Why not have every christmas an official holiday for fmods to relax and not have to moderate the forums on that day?

Imagine reporting someone or getting reported on the best holiday of the year, wouldn't you feel bad too?

Thoughts?

Forum Moderators are on holiday every single day of the year as they are not obligated to moderate the Forums at any given time. Their position is completely voluntary and they can moderate whenever they wish to if they choose to. This makes taking Christmas off pointless for F-Mods.

13 Reports on Christmas day.

Most for misplaced threads. Few for trolling and spamming. Nothing serious.

I can't see that anyone was banned.

It was a quiet day.

I can't even remember muting anyone on Christmas day.

F-Mods can have days off when We/They like. Some like to be on the forums during Christmas including Me to have fun and enjoy the festivities.

There will also be some who might not celebrate Christmas - in that case, it’s a normal day for them.

The forums don’t close for the holidays, and we don’t disappear either. In fact, Jagex used to have some from the Community Management team in the office on Christmas and New Years back in the day (2010ish I remember them being in).

Exactly.

In no form does it say they have to do their "job" or w/e every single day.

The reason why I'm not a Forum Help fmod, that specific task feels like a job, I'm not here to work;). But reality is somebody should do it, if everyone takes a break - that very thread will be in bad shape.

But not for me, I continue posting replies on threads that attracts my attention as I browse RSOF.

And when some people hear about it, they ridicule me. Nobody can please everyone, it is simply impossible.

It's not that you choose not to moderate Forum Help, since Jagex did not make it mandatory, that is not an issue.

It is, however, an issue when you make assertions about Forum Help procedure or people's experiences with Forum Help. It's akin to me speaking for Fmods when I'm not a Fmod myself. Or speaking out about Dungeoneering Sinkholes or Leeching when I've only ever done solos.

You're speaking out of ignorance, have you even imagined that Forum Help issues are not discussed in our internal forums?

Bottom line, I have a say about Forum Help issues like any other forumer, and fmod as a nature of the role. All forumers can express their opinion about Forum Help, and I don't?

Besides, Jagex allows fmods to take breaks - we communicate it to them. It just happens that when a favorite fmod takes a break, some people are making a hissy fit out of it.
