Hi everyone ^_^

I know Mods look after the site and make sure everything is in working order etc but... what does that mean that they do? XD Check for spam reviews? Look out for bugs?

Just wondering. Thank you!

In a nutshell, yes. We keep the site chugging along at a nice speed. So other than checking for spam reviewers, bugs, duplicate posts and incorrectly-rated topics, we try to set the mood of the entire site by being both mentors and friends to members both fresh off the truck and old as dirt. So it's not just a sort of janitorial job. It's very much social, too.

I hope this helps. ;)

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
