Since HvZ has started at UIndy, moderators have been allowed to play the game alongside normal players. Unfortunately, some of the moderators abused their moderating powers to either avoid tags or to influence moderation decisions in a way that benefits their team. Rather than allowing the moderating team to implement new rules to prevent this or even allowing the moderating team to make the decision for themselves, the executive board of the UIndy Gamers' Club, who sponsor the game, went over the moderating team's heads and banned the moderators from participating in game play.
Several players on campus think that the decision to ban all moderator participation is both an extreme action taken without first trying less extreme alternatives, and an abuse of the Gamers' Club executive board's, which is not involved in moderation, influence on the game. Because of this, I've started a petition to show the executive board that not everyone in the UIndy HvZ community and in the HvZ community at large agree with their decision to go over the moderators' heads and make such an extreme decision without first trying the alternatives, and I was hoping that those of you on this forum who agree with our stance would be willing to sign it. http://www.change.org/petitions/stephanie-kirkling-and-marcus-montgomery-allow-humans-vs-zombies-moderators-to-play
