It's not just about the number of moderators, though. If there were three moderators who had the equivalent of malkie's online time, there would be no need for anything more than that. In short, you need online time as much as you need additional moderators. That's true as well There are at least 3 to 4 other spam forums on the mainpage, all of which at some point blatently violate a TOS, and one in which a JCC mod POSTED in. but no lock/ban/pyoonishment. Another problem is that even if there is a mod online, they can't be in every thread at once(there are 50 on the front page). It's general policy that if you see something going on that violates the TOS, PM a mod(Dashy is online now ) and they'll check it out.
