No, I will not ever go back to being a mod. At the time I was moderating, I took a LOT of heat from bans I wasn't even making. I was the exposed mod that everyone knew about so it was easiest to blame me. Being a mod on this site was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life.

The people here were SO obsessed with being banned or not that they would find me on facebook and find out where I worked so they could call my employer to say I was harassing them online. They would message my family members and friends who knew nothing about tengaged. A few users even found out where I lived at the time and were MAILING me death threats. And honestly, it's terrifying to have people know your physical address when that's way too much information for someone on the internet to know about you.

The task itself was extremely stressful. I cant even remember at this point how many stomach ulcers I ended up with from the stress I was put through as a moderator. For those of you who believe it's easy, it's not. It takes an immense amount of work. It comes with a lot of emotional baggage and stress. People will not stop to find you in real life if you ban them and they know it was you.

I don't think any of you realize how many people here are so obsessed over their accounts that they would go through getting phone numbers and addresses to get back at you.


People already do that to me so what do I have to lose?

I just don't think we're getting mods again girl. After dinom fucked up the website, and then after Bpinz, justme,and Johneh collectively fucked up the website, I dont think randomize will give anyone a mod panel.

And if you ask me, the only person stable enough to be a moderator on this website is Yoshitomi , who won't do the job. So were kind of SOL.

That’s fucking crazy :/ I’m so sorry that people would do that but that shows their character and it’s sad :/

Thumper91 it's why I left so abruptly. I changed my phone number, moved, and left my job in order to keep people from finding me.

If you look past the "having power" aspect of the role, there is zero appeal. An unpaid 24/7 role where your manager is not actively supporting you and your clients are a mess. No protection, no security. It is an awful role.

If I was offered it though, I would take it temporarily and with other moderators also in the role. Because the website just needs someone to do something. 😖
Sorry that happened to you, Amartin. No one deserves that harassment.

Holy shit 😱 I always imagined it being stressful but I forgot how insane some users are. Geez!

thats crazy :| it would be nice to get control over multis and no explicit content again but i dont think anyone should be put through that...i think we all have kinda sadly gotten used to the site like this now anyway

I remember you were well liked on this site until the whole moderation thing came through. Ghoul is the only mod I know who never got into any drama but other than him it's been a recipe for disaster

Anas it's because Sean never took the blame for anything, it all got dumped on me.
