    Default Term Limits for Moderators

    Got to thinking this morning... is it right that moderatorship is like life peerage?

    I mean - I know it's got to be a hard job, it must be very wearing to have to force, kick and ban people and then try not to feel the anguish personally. So our mods deserve a break surely.

    How about a 1-year term, and we can roll out 1 or 2 each month, and roll in new ones to replace them?

    I can see other advantages too. It would help maintain good accountability - I can think of one or two who might behave a little more nicely if today's booters could become tomorrow's booties, uh, bootees.

    btw, how come there's no tongue-in-cheek smiley? I think I'd like to stick one in here right about now.

    I think all the moderators do a fine job and keep a perfect balance to the chatroom -- in fact they do such a good job money should be thrown at us from all direction - I wonder if Nike or Pepsi will sponser us? Could we have Label under our cheesy grins I wonder.
    Anyways , back to the point this is a democracy and I vote NO!!!!

    Default mods

    I think the Mods of today on CCWS are fantastic....they do a wonderful job keeping control in the room....each "kick/ban" is done with an unbelievable amount of both thought & feeling
    there are a few "monkeys" that pop into the room from time to time that create unrest but "us mods" just throw a few bananas around and before long they are under our control
    ac mentioned money or sponsership!!!!! I agree, this may come in the future but for now I think we should all just continue to "moderate" as is.......ater all we LOVE our job!!!!!

    I think you moderators do a fantastic job in the chat room!

    I've actually had problems where I seemed to be singled out before, and not a moderator in sight... so I just started talking... or rather typing in old english. Have you ever tried that??? It certainly scares off all the troublemakers! Trust me, I was a moderator in one room where I was the only one from the UK there at the time, everyone else was an American or something-or-other at the time, and, yeah, I couldn't be bothered kicking so I just had a little fun (hehe)...

    Anyways...

    Keep up the good work!!!
