Aside from Grondie these are all horrible ideas. Not that I have anything against the people you listed, but what makes James a good mod is that he stays above the fray. He never goes in chat, hardly uses the +/- system, and have you ever seen him getting petty with anybody or wasting a post on "omgz Spence thanks for the leghump" or "thank you guys all soooo much for the compliments on my outfit, I love you"?

Certain mods recently damaged their credibility by negging too much and getting involved with personal shit...and James hasn't done that as far as I can see.

Yeah he fucked up the World Tour. But he's not a mod on SuFu, now, is he?

Have you ever read jskidder's posts, or is it too difficult for you to actually process the words whilst bouncing on his dick?

Oh, I suppose he's never maimed anyone, committed armed robbery, or rooted for Drew Henson or Chad Henne. Yeah, great mod!

How the fuck do you figure that a troll - who pretended to be a teenaged girl for months - would be a good moderator? Are you out of your mind? I have nothing against Brian/Sevs personally but he is only here to stir shit up and make people look/feel stupid.

And Sonic is just too excitable/opinionated/dramatic. I like him, too, but you need really thick skin to be a mod, as well as an encyclopaedic knowledge of Diesels.

^^ Ross: do you wanna be a Mod ??
post #160 of 250
I guess he thinks that if someone has a lot of posts, then he must be very intelligent and has to know all about fashion and such... That's the true definition of r-tard.
post #161 of 250
I actually think James is a really good mod, other issues aside. I just know that he hardly likes Diesel at all any more, so it seems relevant to be floating other ideas since there's not necessarily a obvious favorite, like CUTUP was for the health section.

If mods should be measured by how little they make people feel look/feel stupid or how opinionated they are, James fails miserably.

Most of the people here with an encyclopedic knowledge of Diesel wouldn't pass your mod test; honestly, James is the only one who knows Diesel even if he doesn't like it and has a I-don't-give-a-fuck attitude. I still think Grondie would be the best choice.

I'd say that you'd be a good mod here ross, but you're too excitable and don't know enough about Diesel JK man, you duck boot thread was the funniest thing that happened in the Fashion section for ages.

I agree with this for the most part, however the people that get offended by 'skids' comments are the ones without a sense of humor about the way they dress. His advice may be blunt but it is useful. I agree that he could package it better, but does anyone tune in to American Idol to see what those other two people not named Simon Cowell will say?

Fact is, James has helped a lot of people tune up their closets and their fits, and if you ask him a simple question about sizing, quality, etc you will get a very straightforward and prompt answer.

I really don't know enough about Diesel or about fashion to be a good moderator here. I do mod at some other boards and I kinda like just being a normal member around here.

Glad you liked the duckboot thread; thanks for your contributions there.

Who's stirring the shit anyway?, Why fix what's not broken?, James is a good mod he speaks his mind and he really let a lot of stuff go by ( a good thing IMO), unless the thread is about sell stuff or racist he let it go...I rather that than an overexited mod that jumps at every word people say.
post #165 of 250
grondie or bio seem like good ideas to me if it comes down to it
post #166 of 250
^ You're talking about a guy who's never worn a single pair of Vikers, Safados or Thanaz and has 20 pairs of Zathan rotting in his closet. Does that sound like somebody fit to lead in a time of crisis?

Keep James. Know one knows as much as him.

Regarding his "constructive" comments...

Honestly they can be a little venomous at times. In reality they probably reflect his deadpan sense of humor, but on a forum they can be easily misinterpreted as being mean-spirited. If constructive criticism is the goal, than he is far from it.

I work in the performing arts and endure/give crticism on a daily basis. The goal is to make the artist feel comfortable while pointing out flaws that he/she can improve on, and keeping your own reputation intact in the process. If you insult someone, making them mad, then their mind is closed to your criticism since they've already made a judgment about you. So what's the point? Saying something mean to feel better about yourself? No way. Anyone who works with people and truly cares about their feelings knows this.

Let's just say that if jskidder sat on some of the audition panels I sing for, he would have multiple bloody noses from several large, loud, and bitter sopranos.

Anyway, if the whole dior world tour situation is not resolved I'd vote to boot jskidder, for sure. Yes he is a competent mod but this forum, being honest and all, shouldn't tolerate that kind of behavior.
post #170 of 250
I don't mind having jskid around, it's good to have someone more "fashion progressive" than myself to keep dragging me forward, albeit kicking and screaming. I think him, and the "attitude" of the Diesel section in general has helped improved my fashion sense, and I appreciate that, even though do I miss the old warm-fuzzy feeling that HF had (read: "more hot chicks").

Anyways if jskid is no longer the mod it should be Ben again.
post #171 of 250
I think we should all stop wasting our time and see if this talk is even warranted...
post #172 of 250
Bio gets my vote if indeed jskidder is out. Otherwise keep it the same
post #173 of 250
lol,

jskidder is our simon cowell

the question now is, where are them diors?

Is talking about the Dior stuff even warranted outside of the World Tour thread on SuFu?

It's obvious that the dude totally slacked on something and inconvenienced/pissed off a lot of people. But my experience/opinion is that trying to shame the person into rectifying their mistake by constantly calling them out at every opportunity only exacerbates the situation by leading them to avoid the situation even more and make even more ridiculous excuses.

If James were a really big douche - ie the kind of mod to abuse his position - he'd close this thread or have someone else do it.
