    I'm not sure where this would go, so if a Mod/Admin feels it should be somewhere else, feel free to move it.
    If a Mod/Admin leaves the Pokegym, how is it determined who becomes the next Mod/Admin?
    Is it just like the community votes on the canidates for who they think would do the best job, or is it just who the current Mods/Admins think is better for the posistion?

    Not tryin' to start anything, I'm just curious. ;)
    Thanks for reading

    Generally you have to have connections to make it into any position. If it was done by a democratic process, some idiot would gain power and ruin it for everyone.

    However I imagine a person's experience and actions would determine if they ever made it to a staff position.

    It's basically just based on who has been most active, has had less warnings about doing wrong things, etc.

    Present.

    Anyway, what generally happens is the other mods get together and decide who should be the next mod. Apparently they know something about it or something. ;)

    Sheesh. I hope we have more to choose from than just who has less warnings!

    Well, for an internet Pokemon board, we've got an incredibly stable group of mods. We've only lost a couple of people over the past couple of years (going back to WotC days) and have only had to add, I think, one mod from our original team.

    Umm, what about the mods/admin(s)(I won't name names), that have done some things that are questionable?

    So it's bassiccaly playing favorites?

    This post was IMO.
    Thanks for reading.

  9. Yes, it is. The mods pick someone the know they can trust, someone they know they can work with, and someone they know who will do a good job. I'm betting they'd like a person with these qualities, thus that person becomes their favorite candidate.

    Is there a problem with that?

    What about members who have done some things that are questionable(I won`t name names)?They`ll never be a mod/admin. :cool:

    As Randy stated,this has been discussed before.Locking for redundancy.
