Months ago, I wrote this post on my blog A Mod’s Life about common misconceptions that we mods have to deal with on a regular basis. As it turns out, most of these are still relevant nearly half a year on!
On the mod forum we’ve been hammering out a list of common misconceptions about FML, and I thought that I’d list a few of the key ones here. This may wind up as a feature on the official site, in more depth at some stage in the future – another reason to keep an eye on that one!
- Mods work for SI – no, we don’t. And we don’t get paid either. We do it for the love of the game and the betterment of its community.
- Mods should be good at the game/are top because they’re mods – nope. Many mods are quite rubbish at the game, and we don’t have any secret advantages. In fact, because of our moderation duties, we have less time to devote to things like testing tactics, scouting for players…
4. Transfers / Finances
So that’s the list – many, many thanks to all the mods who contributed to the forum thread that I’ve shamelessly pillaged: Andy Gathercole, Calvin Gransden, Andy Coburn, Stephen Church, Cian Fahey, David Hill, Stephen Gilchrist, Nick Brooke, Cleon Hobson, Scott Gibson, Ollie Chissell, Paul Kemp and Stu Mackie. Apologies to anyone who contributed and has been missed off – send me a pm and I will add you on to the credits here!
