You sound kind of naïve if you actually think that he meant the guy's mom was a furry. There's a blatant innuendo there.

What authority does he have over you if you're a senior staff member? Besides, there are times that he… well, goes way, way too far. There need to be some rules.

"You have inspired me to name my Lucario, "Loba1024's mom," because they're both full of fur."

That is genuinely horrifying, not to mention disgusting.

And honestly, it would be worth going back to leaving honest reviews of decent names in the (unfortunately relatively rare) event that there's actually some good reasoning behind the name itself. There are more than enough bad names for him to insult without actually roasting good names.

While some of his insults are funny, many are tedious, some aren't fair, and some, like the one listed above, are just unacceptable. Just because he's a mod doesn't make that kind of insult, or racist slurs okay. I can't remember where it was, but I recall him making an antisemitic comment as a rating. It's also not good when he actually does something malicious like leaving something up because he hopes a spoiler will ruin someone's day. If anyone else did things like that, it'd be a bannable offense. But since people can't respond to his ratings, no flame wars can start at least, but does that give him the right to do that?

The Name Rater doesn't own the site, and you shouldn't act like he does. Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing against him, but there has to be some sort of limit on what he can say. Starting with sexual implications involving members of the user's family, racism, and sexism.

I think that the more obvious solution here would be to contact the staff and request that other people be appointed to do the job. This is a good database, but if it's not going to be managed at all, it's kind of a waste. The Name Rater hasn't dive anything in over a year now. Isn't it about time that a few other people get appointed to moderate this aspect of the site?

I'm uncertain as to whether or not this is a good idea, considering how many bad nicknames there are, but if anyone can prove they're educated and capable enough to leave a decent brief critique, I don't see why one person should have all the nicknames dumped onto him.

So I was thinking that more people should be added to the team. That way, names would be rated faster, thereby allowing more people to submit their Nicknames and heave them rated, and there would be less work for everyone.

The 'new hires' would either send reviews for specific names to the Name Rater, where he could approve/dismiss them and post the rating as his own, or they would just do it themselves.

There would have to be certain criteria that would need to be addressed of course:

Can they differentiate between a good name and a bad one (obviously)?
In the case of a decent name, can they write a good, brief review of it?
And in the case of a bad name, can they explain what is wrong with it.
And in the case of especially bad names, can they demonstrate the appropriate amount of Name Rater cruelty?

These traits would have to be evaluated, but I think that this might be a good idea. Thoughts?
