What's the difference between being a Global mod and a Forum mod?
Besides the obvious location difference, I mean. Do you have more powers as one than another?

Generally, the only difference between forum mods and supers is that supers can moderate all of a site's forums. Some sites I've belonged to have differences in abilities (such as length of bans they can issue). Having said that, it's not really important for any of us to know exactly what tool set is available to each moderator level. Enough to get their jobs done, certainly.

I've just had the overwhelming urge to ask that question for a while. If this needs to be moved, I don't mind, I just needed some kind of answer.

So how do you get to be a Moderator?
Are there elections?
Can we hold them accountable?
Can Moderator's be removed from their position?
Can someone try to challenge Rick for the Administrator position?

Yeah, I know. The last question was a rhetorical (I don't think I spelt that right) question but the first four were serious.

GUISE THE INTERNET IS A DEMOCRACY

But really I thought the difference was global mods just had power all over the forums as opposed to just in one particular section.

You're asked.

Popularity Contest FTW! (No, there aren't elections; see above answer.)

MilesKingford wrote:

I guess if you see them behaving poorly you can PM Rick? The mods here aren't jerks, so this probably hasn't been an issue.

MilesKingford wrote:

It's possible, but has never happened here (and I do not foresee it happening, since our moderators generally don't violate the big rules or abuse power or whatever).

MilesKingford wrote:

Only if you have defeated all the other moderators in hand-to-hand deathmatches in the proper order of seniority based on date and time of promotion. And then everyone would leave the forums because without Rick to make the comic... what's the point?

I'm pretty sure I'd still stick around. There are Star Trek and Lord of the Rings fan forums, aren't there? Those aren't being made anymore either.

The question refers specifically to replacing Rick, not joining him.

People were acting like if Rick wasn't the administrator of the forums then it couldn't function, and that being the administrator had to mean controlling all of the site.

I have gained two sudden urges. Firstly I want watch the Power Rangers along with anything lead by a main character whose called a Captain something. Secondly I suddenly want to punch a reporter...I guess I should play Mass Effect now...

The voice of Doctor Naferious in Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time would suite the Troll perfectly...but who could do Rick?
