Just saw Mod Cam's thread in Community Home welcoming these two new members to the RSOFs. Personally, I think that this is a good move in order to maintain these RSOFs alive. The only fact I disagree with is that it has been over four months and LMods have not received their JMod accounts. We can only wish that this occurs soon.
2_Tronsaid: I am not saying they do a horrible job right now, I am just saying they can do the same job without the gold jacket / -paint. I can do the same without the need to look inside Jagex's vault to see how things are tight together. After all FMods can do the same job.This is wholly misguided. FMods do not do the same jobs as LMods due to the fact that FMods are volunteers and do not get paid for what they do. On the contrary, as it has been stated numerous times, the current LMods are paid for what they do and are simply waiting for their JMod accounts to be active.
In order for the current LMods to fully take care of the RSOFs and the FMods themselves, they would need a JMod account to give them the ability to check FMR and to oversee FMods' actions. Clearly, they are not able to fully do their jobs because they don't have a JMod account as evidenced by the lack of FMR supervision. If they were able to do their duties without a JMod account, as you claim, then FMR wouldn't have been left deserted since November 27th, 2018.
Personally, I believe Nick and Neriphyra have been carrying their positions excellently. It's just sad that they haven't had the ability to supersede their current state due to the lack of a Gold Jacket, as Tuftty says. I'm sure that if they were already JMods, threads like this one and the one about FMR wouldn't have been created. The community loves them and would enjoy them as JMods because their potential is endless. I just hope that it doesn't take four more months...• Ana •
