OK, I've checked back frequently enough to see that I'm still eligible to metamoderate three times in a 24 hour period - I guess that's the norm. (I might even be eligible to do it more often, but I'd rather sleep than check...)

I actually managed to use all five moderation points this time. Let's see if I'm more likely to get them more frequently if I actually use them, or if it doesn't make any difference.OK, I've checked back frequently enough to see that I'm still eligible to metamoderate three times in a 24 hour period - I guess that's the norm.

I find that I tend to use them on gaming threads more than others, because they interest me and because they aren't as flooded with replies as many other subjects. Some threads have so many posts that it's just painful at times to read through them all at -1.

I've taken to browsing at +2 or +3 in those threads when I don't have mod points, because I honestly don't feel up to wading through the racist crap and flamebait and run-of-the-mill stupidity. I may miss some good posts doing that - but life is just too short...

  • ul
  • li
