    As you've all probably seen at this point, we're in need of a new C&G mod. And even though the MS makes the final decision, it seems right that you all get your say, too.

    And not just about the new mod - as C&G as a whole. I may be the one handing out colors and warnings, but it's not my forum, it's our forum. And as such, I want to know what you all think.

    I cribbed some(okay, a lot of) questions from an old C&G survey Tyi and I put up a few years ago (so credit to him for much of this). I want to know what you guys think. If you want to let me know and don't feel comfortable answering in public, feel free to PM me all or part of your thoughts. If you don't feel comfortable PMing me about something, our three friendly neighborhood admins are always available and willing to hear what you have to say.

    (And I should add that any time you have anything to say, good or bad, don't be afraid to PM me. I'll listen to anything you have to say, and I'm always really happy to hear from people.)


    A New Mod

    We are getting one :p I have ideas, but I want to hear from you guys as well. If you have a specific suggestion for a person, PM me. Please DO NOT post specific suggestion in this thread. Let me know why you think that person (or persons, if you have multiple suggestions) would be a good C&G mod.

    And as a side note, I make no promises that the person you recommend will be the person who's promoted, so please don't be offended if someone else is chosen.


    And onto . . . the survey!

    I should note, these survey questions are more like guidelines than specific things you should answer. If you have anything else to say, any suggestions to make, or would prefer to reply differently, by all means, please do!


    Games

    What do you think of them?
    Do we have enough games? Do we have too many?
    Would you like to see more or less in the amount of games?
    Do we have a good variety of games?
    Are the games in this forum fun?
    What could be improved in certain games or for the forums games as a whole?
    What is currently done that you dislike?
    Other comments/suggestions:


    Drafts

    Do we have enough of them? Do we have too many?
    Do we have enough players/participation to still host full-length drafts?
    Are the C&G drafts still fun?
    What could be improved for the drafts?
    Other comments/suggestions:


    Polls

    What do you think of them?
    Are new polls created on time? Too fast, too slow?
    Are there not enough polls? Are there too many polls?
    Are too many poll ideas being rejected? Would you like to see more ideas in the suggestions thread go through?
    Are the mods ever too restrictive on poll criteria?
    Are polls looked after well?
    What is currently done that you dislike?
    Other comments/suggestions:


    Tournaments

    Do you like the tournaments?
    Are they done too often? Not often enough?
    What do you think about the pace during the touurnaments' durations?
    Do you think anything should be changed about the current tournament format?
    Are you interested in continuing the tournamentts?
    Other comments/suggestions:


    Moderators

    Do you think the current moderator (Nat/NYCitygurl) is a good leader?
    Is she involved enough in the forum?
    Does she respond to comments, queries and suggestions promptly?
    Does she participate in the forum well? Does she need to increase her participation?
    Is she fair and respectful?
    What does she do that you don't like?
    What could she do to improve?
    Other comments/suggestions:

    What are you looking for in a new moderator? In the C&G mod team in general?
    What qualities is it important for the new mod to have?
    Other comments/suggestions:



    Note on the mod questions: They?re things I?d like to know, though often official mod reviews go through the admins. If you?d rather not post anything here or PM me, any of the admins can pass it on to me anonymously, and Rogue?Jedi has specifically volunteered to.

    I'll try to do something with this survey, although all I pretty much do is drafts so I don't know how useful I'll be on the other stuff.

    Also, remember, if you guys have a suggestion for the new mod, I'd really appreciate hearing. A couple people have sent me suggestions, and they've been really great. I seriously want to know what you all think.

    Unpinning this in the hopes that it'll be more visible.

    The survey doesn't have and end date, but if you'd like to send me your input on potential mod candidates, I ask that you do so within the next week.
