As long as you post on topic you should be fine. Although capitalizing those Is and the first word is each sentence might help. As would not double posting.

And don't make threads about fake things. Same goes for apologizing, this can be done through PMs.

You've made six threads. This is the only one still open.

1 - Fake
1 - Apologizing
2 - Copies/Fake
1 - Cheat

With that kind of track record you should be cautious what you post. Please think things through before posting.

To my knowledge...

Mods: Close threads, infract, edit posts
Mod+: Ban without infracting, sticky threads (I don't know if normal mods can do this).
SMods: Are allowed to mod freely in other sections, can mod others.
Admins: Look at PMs, and do whatever the hell they want to really.

There are more, but I don't know them.

My additions/corrections:

Mods can sticky threads. They can also do more to them like approve/delete/move/etc.
Mod+s can edit signatures.
SMods can do what Mod+s can do but on all sections. They cannot mod others.
Admins can...well, do whatever they want.

I closed your thread because you made up a random date and said it was on gamespot.com, and I checked and it wasn't.

Get your story straight. ^^;

Mods are allowed to infract people for breaking the rules.

And I also believe they are very good at licking facetious's balls.

Mods dont only do that! ermm, there are lots of great things to being a mod. most of all! they feel special! they actually do! all that power.

Mods can never come on for undetermined lengths of time.

It is a general unwritten law that at any forum, regardless of it's content, at least half of the mods never come on.

ruin your life and make it miserable, just joking

they patroll the forums keeping people in line so if anyone starts spamming or gets into an argument they put a stop to it by either closing the thread this is going on in, give them a warning or refferal or if the offense is really serious they could ban you from the forums for a certain amount of time.

Well, they're allowed to break the rules, and they can ban people.

Speaking from experience, mods can edit/delete your threads/posts, view your IP address, moderate the section they're assigned in (lock threads, split topics, etc.), but they can't directly ban you (it might be different on other forums). I believe the admins are in charge of bans. Mods just tell them who to ban.

You're right. Even if 80% of them hate my guts, they just can't get enough of my ballz.

we can ban, but only through infractions.

Mod+ and up can ban directly.

Facetious will never get banned. That's just the way of things.

Why's that? Does she threat the Moderators or something? .... Or is she the luckiest person on the face of this earth?
