What is WRONG with you mods???

This thread got me thinking, why god why would anyone ever want to be a mod? Not only would I not be willing to pay $300.02 to be a mod for a day, but you couldn’t pay me enough to take that thankless job. So why do you do it, Mods? Is the coffee mug that good? I’m starting to think you’re a bunch of masochists. :confused:

Well, it’s definitely not the mug.

I’ll take the mug if you don’t want it. :wink:

Mug? What mug?

Honestly, that linked thread wasn’t the one I was expecting it to be.

I do it for the power. That, and no real life outside the Board.

It’s obviously all about the life-size statues in the lobby of the Reader. Guaranteed to last a thousand years. Brain upload pending.

Which one were you expecting?

I did a stint once for about four years on a hobby board.


Never again.

I’m betting my pink purse it is this one.

Yes. And a post that was just a wee bit over the top.

On this board, you gotta make the money first. Then when you make the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, you get the women.

Interesting. I hadn’t seen that thread. Thanks for pointing it out for me.

Does it inspire you to apply for a mod job?

fyi, I just posted to that thread, and it made my day (possibly because it reminded me of how witty I am).

Come play along!

I was married for 5 years. Being a mod would be cake compared to her.

Unfortunately it’s virtual money, virtual power, and virtual women.

IvoryTowerDenizen even got a virtual mug! Samclem* provided the only answers thus far, power & no life, but I fail to see how that outweighs the headache. Are there any stats on how long it takes the average mod to say “Fuck it, I can’t take it more”. Is there a mod hall of fame, for those who last the longest/burn out the fastest?
*I know your username is all lower case, but since I was starting a sentence with it, I wasn’t sure which way to go.

Most honest answer ever given on this board.

I got a mug.

Has anyone ever explained to you the difference between “I got a mug” and “I got mugged”?
