Why do you want to be admin?
 Group admin 
seriously why? I've almost left this group myself half a dozen times, but always stayed, because brickdoctor was here, and I didn't want to abandon him. Now we are promoting new admins, and I want to know why you even want to be admin. This is possibly the most argumentative, and volatile group on the site, why do you want that pressure?

I am paranoid about most everyone here, and overall (there are exceptions) am disappointed in everyone's maturity in Christ. I don't know you, I don't know your friends, I don't know anything about you except what I see here, and even that could be fake.

So since I don't know much about you, I am going to provide a situation, and learn more about you before I clear you for adminship, this isn't just for those getting votes either.

All right here's the situation, a new person has quickly shown himself to be very active, and for a week, everything's fine. Then he starts upsetting the peace with, "I HATE god!"

How do you react?

If somebody started that, I would I ask them to calm down and explain why they are so upset. If they stop yelling and tell me what they are mad about, I can then point them to some Scriptures that I think might be helpful. If he doesn't calm down and keeps hollering I would tell him that I am going to remove him from the group because of his disruptive influence but he would be welcome to come back once he has calmed down.

That seems like the right thing to do to me well said Rusty.

i tell him to calm down find out what sparked this because if he is good for a week its probably new and the spark could be a unchristian action by another member. after finding out whats wrong depending on anything else he may have done give him a warning and try if necessary to calm the rest of the group down. If I have to boot him once booted they are gonebut i would give a couple warnings however if we got a whole anti GROUP made by said person it would be a banning until a formal apology was made. and finally if not keep an eye on him for the next couple of weeks and tend to other matters in the group.

That's what I would do. I would tell them to calm down. And if they don't I'd give them a warning. If they didn't calm down at all I would remove them then after a couple of weeks I'd check on him and if he is clam I would let him back in. But if it happend again I would remove he/she again from the group. I would keep doing it until they stop.

Life doesn't give you 70x7 chances at very many things, at some point the offender must be banned. The current strike rule, has them being banned upon the second removal (a total of 6 warnings plus a big one in being removed, which I think is plenty of warnings). Do you have what it takes to ban somebody on their final strike? I want a definite answer too, not yes/no, you can elaborate a little, but I still want a clear cut answer.

I would try to calm him down. Ask him why he was so upset and give him a warning that if he does it again he will be removed. Then I would let him back in the group after a week. And if he does it again a third time he will be banned.

This is for, lite disturbed, and rusty. Do you guys have the will to move your mouse and click the "ban" button. You two seem nice enough, and I think have the right idea, but you must have the will to live out Proverbs 22:10. "Remove the scoffer and contention will cease." I don't want you to call down fire from heaven. I just want you to be able to ban someone who has demonstrated, an unwillingness to change, and is blaspheming or disrupting the group.

I would do this simply: go to him (manner of speach) and ask him why is he starting to behave that way. Then try to reason with him, because we can't just tell him: "Hey go read the bible and stuff". We must talk to them face to face (again, manner of speech). If his behavior doesn't change I would kick him, wait for him to calm down and then accept him back. If he kept with the same behavior, I would just have to swallow my niceness and good will and press the ban button.

Yes, sir. I will ban if nesisary (Sorry if I spelled it wrong). I will give them 2 warnings. On the 3rd I will "Cowboy up" and click the ban button. I am willing to do so.

Here's where things stand, I trust Harland, and Rusty, and have made them admins, to take part of the load. Lite, James, and Lego man, I don't know you guys yet, but you have given me a good first impression. I don't plan on making too many other people admins, because I think it's unnecessary, and can create problems, but there may be a few more.

So I think this will be it for now, I want you all to know that I greatly appreciate everyone's willingness to help out. For the near future however there will be me, Harland, and Rusty.

To Harland and Rusty congrats and prepare for possibly the most intense adminship you will every experience. Be kind, yet firm, and seek the Lord with all your heart, with all your soul, and all your mind.

I don't mind banning if they are a real disturbance.
