Is mini-modding allowed?

Mini-modding is the practice in which a Regular user temporarily takes up the role of Moderator. One example of this would be a user asking another user to stop trolling, or like I just did, reminding people to get back on topic.

I didn’t see this. It is permissible to politely ask others to stay on topic once. But as some of our more emotional members will be prone to use it as more of an excuse to deflect and hijack the thread, only ask once. If the offender continues, flag the post and a Mod will review the issue and take appropriate action.


Does the board TOS apply to everyone equally, or do some posters have special privileges?

Mods moderate Mods, the rest of you do not. Welcome to our kingdom.
