Emergency Mods?

Discussion in 'Suggestion Box' started by Freaky Fender, Sep 8, 2003.

  1. With the recent DotEnterRepeat attack, I would like to send out the idea of having 2 or 3 OT emergency mods for situtations like this, incase other mods are not availible...

    While this is a good idea in theory, what would the conditions be that an emergency mod arose?

    ya know?

    like would a regular mod have this "emergency password" to become a temporary OT mod and it's just a trust system?

    otherwise, for paul to give a mod emergency powers he'd have to be online, and if he is online, he can presto-chango the problem in moments.

    It's been suggested before. Paul hasn't gone for it and it's his site.

    lil_bass_boy had a long signature that consisted of "_

    repeat one million times. Just a load of garbage. So he was obviously banned for this because he refused to change it. He then went to a friend's house and created this new account. His signature was then even longer and he flooded the boards with "asdf" messages. You know, just being a jackass in general.
  6. Ill be an emergency mod, I keep this board in tip top shape...
