In that case I think the moderator helps. Making a game isn't terribly involving, but RUNNING one certainly is, and I think ensuring everyone goes through you is a subtle way to say "This is kind of a serious commitment." Dropping a game as a player is a drag, but dropping a game as a GM is a real hassle. But then again I've GM'd for a while. Maybe needing to go through a moderator is scaring off potential new GMs?

This message is in reply to post 23991:

No, I rarely if ever turn down requests... I was just wondering if ppl having to go thru a moderator is a choke point. Maybe this casuses ppl who might otherwise see a create a game option to not create a game thinking maybe more is involved. The burden is not an issue at all.
