you dont need a modship to tell someone that there fighting unfairly, just knowlage to those whose fight he may be interupting
I know. But having the athority to stop it or truly lay some rules gives you real respect. If you did not having 'modship powers', some people could give you trouble - knowing you couldn't do anything about it. Even if they're contacts were mods.
It would probably do just fine if I was around. But if I went off for two weeks or something - and I am saying 'if' - that person in 'control' would not be able to close topics or officially proclaim winners.
I understand the people's willingness to help out, but really it wouldn't be right if I left this place to a person without modship for a few weeks - to that matter just a single week.
