Re: Moderator Help
Mods do not ignore PMs or VMs that are related to their job on NB. This said, we do have the right to ignore members who are obnoxious, ridiculous, flamers, haters, trolls or simply people we don't like if their VMs/PMs are simply not-moderation related.

Its childish to think we are here to be friends with everyone but we are here to do a job. A job we do, regardless of our feelings towards the members. So if a member that i don't specifically like or feel inclined to socialized with sends me a vm saying "Hi, how are you?" i have the right to decide not to reply. However, if the same member vms me saying "Scorps, you know were i can find the restrictions for a Nagato bio?" then he will get a reply, because that is my job as an RP mod. Pure and simple.
Stating in such a thread that mods ignore members is both ridiculous as it is telling only half the truth. Its an inflammatory reply designed not to be helpful but to instigate members against the staff.
To the OP i'll add one thing. When we close the browser window (and this is valid for any member), we don't immediately appear as off line. It takes about 15-30 minutes for the site to realize we aren't online and identify us as offline. So, if i close my browser window now, my name will still appear as online for 15-30 minutes more. This happens because most people don't hit the "log out" button on the forum tool bar. If you do it, then it takes about 2 minutes for your name to appear as offline. So, you might have vmed or pmed a moderator that in reality shows online but is not at the moment. We can also be editing posts, away from keyboard, etc etc. When you PM/VM us remember that we will only see it when our page reloads. And, for example in my case, if I'm checking cjs, i won't check the pms/vms send during that time until i finish the page I'm on. So, in essence, because you didn't get a reply in a split second, it doesn't mean you were ignored. I just means you aren't patient.
