How we also already wrote, a lot of people warn the GamersFirst admins about the Moderators and VGMs. Here are some examples:
Please don’t import all their Mod’s and VGM’s why? because many of them don’t do their “jobs” and play the favoritism cards…, some VGM’s [not all of them] are known for doing favoritism to their friends… don’t be fooled they are corrupted, many veterans left the game because of this, you will do great damage to the game if you use all the current staff at least the head VGM and HEAD mod should definitely not be from the old staff.
“Yes we will keep the VGM’s and Mod’s from the current community. We don’t want to change things that work, the VGM’s and Mod’s from the current community are fantastic and our main objective is to make everyone as happy as possible”
You are joking, or you haven’t been watching the Acclaim forums at all. The current crop of Acclaim forum mods are the most hated people in the community. Most of the in-game VGM’s aren’t bad, but “most” doesn’t include “all”.
Please for all things holy do not bring the staff that Acclaim had. Mods/VGM anyone please do NOT have us go through their corrupt ways again.
One of the biggest issues with the previous publisher and its staff as well as its volunteers is their lack of knowledge. There have been dozens of occasions where I have personally been asked by a Game Moderator questions that anyone who has actually played 9Dragons past the first twenty levels would know.
Honestly, I would rather not keeping the old mods apart from a select few
It’s hard not to get angry when you get warned for the word “Hell” in something you quoted
and the person whom you quoted (Who is also in the post right above yours) does not get warned
I have worked well and given suggestions to some of the ex official staff and volunteer one, but unfortunately many there didn’t do their job right. You can see there VGM’s going crazy and poisoning people, giving friends buffs/inside info about the game and events, (not to mention some lied in their VGM application and were 10/12 YO and had limited game knowledge and even more limited moral etics), MODS banning some people without a real reson while allowing some rule breakers to post unhindered, deleting valid topics and many more.
please interveiw the Mods VGM’s GM’s again if u going to bring them over see if u actually want those ppl cause i know a large portion of the 9 Dragons community dont
a big no no for old VGMs and Mods from me
Hope u guys won’t take the old MODs in here!!
The Mods on the other hand, gave bans and warnings left and right on the forum. Like sweet bread
New Mods please…
bringing the VGM team over also is the big mistake.
if the old mod/VGM come and remains all we know what will happend.. but as they will have new boss.. new rules.. and maybe finally the dream come tru (the all players of 9D dream).. better game… good mod/VGM and usefulll team
G1 don’t take the old vgm’s/mods trust us
U should change mods and cancel that stupid VGM “project”.
Altough Acclaim version hasn’t been closed YET, i want to make a proposal that we choose new moderators for new forum.
get ride of the old MODS
Some even refuse to come back to 9Dragons, like Magimay, as long the Mods and VGMs stay the same:
Yes we will keep the VGM’s and Mod’s from the current community. We don’t want to change things that work, the VGM’s and Mod’s from the current community are fantastic and our main objective is to make everyone as happy as possible.
Well, that is all I needed to know. I won’t be rejoining 9Dragons as I don’t like being abused by moderators, who are having a bad day(yes, I was told that since they are volunteers, if you make them do their job, they can and will harass you untill you quit). It’s a shame you find that amazing job: deleting posts that point out their mistakes and pretending those bever existed, outing ex-VGMs, flaming, off-topic, harassment, not to mention some of them have poor knowledge of the English language…
However; There are some answers which give big hope. Here are some of them:

G1 is constantly evaluating moderator performance, and all complaints concerning moderators are taken in stride.

The GamersFirst forums are powered by InvisionBoard, so the warn system that we use is the warn system that Invision has. It is currently configured to allow 10 warnings before 100%.

for not bringing in the old mods /gms trust me that gamersfirst would not do it if it wasnt best for the game off course all people that get moderating status here will have to follow the g1 forum rules

Trust me guys, just going to make a statement here: If the Mods or “VGMs” from the previous forums and publisher don’t do there jobs correctly, they will be taken out of their position. I’ve seen it happen with a WarRock forum mod since he didn’t do his job, and did reveal some brief information that was otherwise unknown.

I’d like to point out the fact that GamersFirst monitors us mods VERY closely. Anything and I mean ANYTHING that any mod or VGM does that does not follow GamersFirst direction will not go unseen nor unmentioned. I promise you if GamersFirst sees a problem with currect VGMs or mods they will take the appropriate action. It has been done before.
GrnBeret2B, G1 Mod, wrote again:
Should GamersFirst determine that the mods or VGMs are acting out of order, they will be terminated.
All those answers give indeed hope. I am sure, that those aren’t just empty words and promisses like we know them from Acclaim, but that there will be real actions from GamersFirst. In other words: If the 9D Mods and VGMs don’t change to how they should act, they will be kicked out. That sounds pretty good, at least I am happy with that. And if an old 9D Mod or VGM stays by proving to be able to act professional, then I also don’t have any problem with that.
Here’s also another interesting information about the GMs location:
Also, are the GMs for G1 all located in India as well like Acclaim’s GM team is? (With the exclusion of Fugen and The Hermit)
No. From what I understand the main offices are located in Irvine, California. There are also offices throughout Europe, in Korea. and in India.
If we take a look at the GamersFirst-Locations website, then we can indeed see that there are offices located in India, too. And personally, I hope they will take none of Acclaim’s 9Dragons GMs, not even Ravenclaw. He may be the best GM from Acclaim’s 9Dragons, but that doesn’t make him good. If you don’t understand that line, think about it.
And to end this article, we all deserve something to laugh. After all this is a new beginning for 9Dragons, and the bad Mods and VGMs will be kicked out soon for sure. So let’s forget the war (look at it, and you will admit, it is one) and have something to laugh. Here we go:
(…)I am adding also the level of debate from the ex forum…that was under the sea limit. You banned people because they simply… ‘ in your language’… is call ‘owned’!”
hehe Your Just like all the trols XD you have nothing on me so your attack is the way i type… haha brings back memories… i dint take you as that tipe Seb..and BTW you dont have to be perfect at typing to be a mod you just have to have a brain… i feel sorry for you if you dont get that….
Next time, Febus, when you want to pretend like you’re using your brain, then use it for real. Even if this, what you wrote, is true (what it isn’t… A moderator have to be able to write good english in an english-talking community, because the members need to understand what the moderator says), you should have write at least the name right. Either, write her full nickname Sedbona to prevent failures, or use the right short form, in this case Sed, and not Seb…

P.S – Some short news about the upcoming german 9Dragons version:
According to Camlost, a Moderator, there will not be IP bans to IPs from other countries. Those who want to play there, can do that. Also, he states that their licence is for Germany only, and later also for France. The german 9Dragons servers will start approx. end of november.
For those who want to play there and still don’t know how to use an english textfile on another 9D version, we will bring you a HowTo at the right time, in case OnNet/CamesCampus doesn’t offer their 9D in english. After all, it will most probably be a new beginning there, and no Acclaim’s 9D Mods or VGMs.
