Given the years of experience alot of you all have as admins I am sure someone has dealt with this at least once. I run a site for teens(I'm a teen myself) so I don't unfortunately have the luxury of always dealing with maturity that I'd expect from adults but given I am a teen i can easily relate to kids my own age. I'm getting used to petty arguments, Flaky moody, Members who quit for the stupidest of reasons to come back 2 hours later and they decide they don't want too It's fine....We're teens. What annoys me right now is I have a member who is dying to be a moderator. I'm sure if he had the chance to participate in a real life Hunger games competition...everyone would be dead in like 2 mins. He's that determined. Site's almost a year old and he was one of the original first 5 members(I think number 5). So it's not like he has never had a chance to be staff...in fact, he has had like 10 chances and has failed each time. He has made promises he can't keep and to be honest, he isn't liked. He whines, complains, laments about nobody liking him(When he has treated 98 percent of the members badly) and he somehow believes in his mind if he is staff..that will make people respect him. I made a deal with him if he got the support of enough staff member and a few members that believed he deserved chance #11, I'd allow him to be staff. Of course he didn't get all the people so now he wants me to snap my fingers and ask the community to back him up. First of all, I half the time can't even get my community to even post or create topics...so how on earth can i get them to back someone they don't like lol He claims he has so much good he wants to do for the site and wants to help...and I keep trying to explain to him you can do good by being a member....an Admin is just a member with a ton of responsibilities. To become an admin or mod, you need to be a good member. I thought about simply just giving him a cool color, giving him his own special title and letting him be a moderator of the Offtopic/Forum Games area...But then I am willing to bet, he'll be like "Why Can't I see the moderator panel or the mod forum? I want to be able to this and that. I should have more powers." I want to honestly say..."No, you can't be a staff member. You have literally had at least 10 chances and you have failed miserably. You tried to use MY SITE to promote your site(which is a huge reason why I won't allow him to be staff) without my permission. I'd like this conversation to be dropped because you are not contributing anything but negativity to the site and if you can't drop this conversation, you may need to simply log off and leave." ^thats what i want to say but I'm trying to be respectful and I don't want to hurt his feeligns too bad. How do you or would you handle this type of member?
