There have been frequent complaints about the lack of moderation in the ffxi forums. Understandably so, since vlor is the only one who actively moderates any of them, and there's only so much he can do, which leaves very little moderation done. Most job/server forums are completely unmoderated, etc. It's simply impossible for vlor to effectively moderate one of the busiest forums on the site by himself, and unreasonable to expect him to.
In this thread i suggested that people use the report button more, as it of course is the easiest and fastest way to get admin attention. However as blowfin was getting it, it's just not really happening, at least not as much as it probably should, based on how often complaints come up.
Back in the ask an admin thread kao mentioned volunteer moderators, and it seems like that may be a decent option to explore for the ffxi forums. Being such an old game, i understand not wanting to hire admins for the game just to help moderate the forums. However i'm sure there are people who spend time on the forums anyway who wouldn't mind spending some time helping keep the quality of the forums up.
Although i rather dislike heavy moderation myself, and prefer the more hands off moderation that zam uses, it doesn't appear to be working too well for the ffxi forums, and i think even just one or two volunteers could help a lot.
