Live Chat does have some changes to it, but the Live Chat Volunteers will be able to conduct actions as necessary.

Right. Essentially, with the Report a Post Feature---we have a whole forum of spotters, and non-Dept Leader Volunteers utilize the same tools and can act as those spotters, and call attention to issues to Global Mods and Dept. Leaders who are impacted.

Speaking as a former mod, this idea is horrible. While I was a mod there were countless occasions where the forum was getting trolled and no mod could stop them, as complete mod powers were different back then, and limited to just a few as it will be now. The best we could do is provide band-aids to the wounds caused by the trolls. This new plan is reverting back to the old system one that harms the customers. The way I see it this is a way for the admins to get more free labor. This way they no longer need to provide many people with the access to the mod forums, only the head mods. By doing so they can allow people with questionable records to become mods as most mods will no longer have any real power or access to secret information. This means that now people such people as jefjef or colton may become the newest mods. Frankly, this seems insane to me that such people would ever have a chance at becoming a mod, and now they do. If you thought that mods abused their power before, it will be worse now that there is no screening for a mod assuming they are good enough friends with the head mod of that area

Your idea of what will happen using this new organization is incredibly extreme. I believe that the leader of each department team can be trusted not to install new team members that will cause big problems.

Feel like helping out again? ;) That's what all it comes down to. This makes things easier for the Team to have the necessary people to make things function smoothly. :D

Nice to know. It seems well thought out, and I'm sure it'll work. Plus, a few of the current mods can probably breath a sigh of relieve with the new sitting rule. ;)
