    I don't care for Jaesun as a person, but it had nothing to do with my vote (since I sort of like Crispy but I think he should be demoted too). Jaesun asked for no comments in one of the best rpgs voting thread. I posted my list, a couple of people comment to say how much it sucks (against his own rule), he brofists one of them. When I reply, my post (and just my post) gets retardoed. If he had retardoed them both or had left my post alone I wouldn't have cared that he's lax in his duties, but selective enforcement of rules = shit mod.

    Tit pic drama. NSFW tags exist so people don't end up accidentally watching something like tranny porn when at work or in less discerning company, and is not dependent on whether Lord Crispy himself has a problem with it. Shouldn't have taken any strong arming at all to get him to do it. Plus, he's kind of turned into an asshole since he got the job. Maybe because he spends half his day going through queued andhaira threads?

    Just close the Jrpg and Mmorpg sections and demote their respective moderators, save money while simultaneously inclining the Codex.

    Jaeson is the worst kind of mod, the kind that actually enjoys moderating. He merges threads on a whim and turns discussion into an incoherent and impossible to follow mess. He removes posts when something rubs him the wrong way instead of basing his decisions on the quality of the post. He's a hypocrite because a lot of his posts are just dumb one-liners, emoticons, circlejerking, and shitposts, but he gets upset when other people post things he doesn't feel are substantial discussion. Dude just overall goes against the spirit of the site, at least what I've gathered of it since my time reading. Codexers are pretty easy-going with the mods for the most part, so if one seems to consistently piss people off the way Jeason does... he's obviously doing things different from the other mods and from what the users expect. It's not like this is the first time Jaeson's shit mod history has come up.

    I also voted to boot Uliminatitit because he's a massive circlejerker/brown-noser. That sort of behavior is harmful to an online community.

    If Jaeson has to be demoted, leave him as mod of adventure games and workshop. I can see why others think he over-moderates, but it works better on those boards than crpg.

    Personally, I feel like moderation has been fine. 'Course I stay out of /gd/ so I have no opinion on it.

    Jaesun is fine -- just a bunch of butthurt tweenagers complaining about him for no reason.

    I like the idea of demoting everyone for a week and just watching the site fall into chaos. Probably wouldn't last a day though before everything went to shit.

    I think the guy is a bro but a too overzealous moderator. He moves and splits and edits threats too often, with very little indication that he did so. This makes reading the Codex confusing at times. Worse, his definition of "what is an RPG" doesn't always mesh with the majority's, often leading to seemingly random thread movement.

    But that's not my biggest issue. My biggest issue is that when a thread even slightly derails (in his opinion) the offending part is put into retardo with no indication in the incised thread. Here is a recent example:

    http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/gdtards.83118/

    Someone asked Davis about the Cheesecake Factory and got a pretty cool reply. However, both the question and reply were cut and retardo'd due to heavy-handed moderation and had to be manually restored by Crooked Bee.

    *sigh*

    Jaesun is a p. good guy, imo. But he does seem to base his moderating style on the Bethie/Obsiditard board styles of moderation. He's not that bad (none but themselves could be) but it is a little against the spirit of this place. Shit, he's never even fucked with any of my posts and his style annoys me.

    Yes! He's a good guy but his moderation is a bit too heavy-handed. I really like how old threads often derailed into tubgirl or went off-topic, but still managed to stay entertaining and funny. This can't happen with Jaesun because he wants to keep things on-topic and relevant. I guess we're saying he does his job too well.

    I really want to stress he should still moderate Adventure Gaming, though! He's always done great there.
