    Those topics bring lots of problem with them. Some users which have no more interest in your forum topic will give you a headache sometimes, e. g. to-big-to-ban-users. You can ban them but your forum members will hate you for doing so, same as in the real world. You do the right thing, but everyone hates you for doing so, thats why politicans do always the wrong things. Imagine a president would not consider helping a big bank, company... Would be the right thing to do, because on the long run everyone suffers from saving them, but on the short run he will chose to help them, because everyone would hate him for not doing it...

      I have great staff on my forum and all members are made fully aware that no member is too big to ban.

      I have banned supermoderators before now for misconduct. What is a rule for one is a rule for all - no exeptions.

      I think you have to be fair and consistent, the latter being the most important.

      Back to the thread I think people need some down time from the forum topic. I have found that as my forum has grown my role has changed. My job is now advertising, maintenance, admin etc. but also I make a point of trying to keep the forum moral high by introducing fun threads which spark off topic debate and humour.

          Seriously threads over 1000 pages long aren't hard to come by.
