I know this isn't meant seriously but the weird, or daft, thing is you can. Unless they've changed it since my days on moderation.
Haven't tried simply because I didn't think you could, anyway I've got plenty of time to find out, gonna be on 'mod' for a while yet!
I was moderation for a year and a half. One day I sent a mod a message asking me to be removed and it worked. Might want to try that, and being nice helps. My opinion.
Bravo Callaghan. Right on!
I posted earlier about good moderators and bad (just like in any industry - you have good and bad). However I feel that most moderators are good and are trying to do a good job for which they are not paid. They are providing a free service. Heavens, someone has to do it otherwise the forums would be a disaster. So THANK YOU MODERATORS. I'm sure you don't get thanked enough for all that you do - only criticized.
So i would like to reiterate what Callaghan said. Ask for what you think is fair, and who knows what will happen.
