OK folks, here's the scoop - I haven't run this past Mata yet, and at the end of the day, it's his decision, but here goes.

Let's assume that he goes for the idea of installing a couple more moderators.

3 questions:

1; do you think it's a good idea for one or 2 mods to be installed?

2; who'd be up for it i.e. applying for the job. I suggest only those with a degree of maturity (not necessarily meaning age).

3; also, who do you trust to carry the vast burden of moderating - i.e. nominations

as I say, just an idea, I feel that the forum's growing to the size where my occasional presence, and mata's rarer presence may or may not be enough.

Not to mention that I'm off on business for several weeks shortly, and probably won't be on at all.

Mata, whaddya think?

Oh yeah, and as an aside, Mata won't get this until tomorrow - the poor lad's just gone to bed.

So, by then, we should have a fair amount of opinions of whether it's a good idea, and maybe even some nominations.

i nominate leo, he's the only frequent poster mature enough to use his mod power on angry hatefull ppl and not someone who disagrees with him (not sayin that others aren't qualified (like crissi) but if we're gonna get another mod, we mindas well get one who'll be here A LOT!)

I think the idea of more moderators sounds good... just because things have been getting so out of control lately.... who we nominate (in case Mata does take our nominations seriously) should be thought out very carefully....

the darling crissilove should get the forum remote just like the brain remote

leo is a wise choice too methinks

i might be a bad choice it depends on whether or not i could handle the power

i would probably just pm people and ask them to edit posts themselves though unless i heard a BIG complaint

WOW!! Thanks fer the vote of confidence Cheese smile.gif

I'd suggest crissi, missy, lolo, inky an cheese... those guys show a lot of maturity here an I'd be happy to see any of them with the role.

Please please don't anyone say "why not me?" I'm not gonna start that!

I have no objections to bein chosen as a mod... but if I'm not made one, that's cool too...

I really don't think it has come to that yet. I think that a thoughtful post from Mata or Jon telling folks to settle down would handle it. Things are not that bad honestly. We just need to maintain that open atmosphere where people can discuss ideas, the animations, stupid stuff, the weather.. etc..

i definitly DO NOT nominate myself. i think crissi would be a great mod! missy would also be very good, as would cheese, and i am surprised no one has thought of lolo! leo would be great as long as he keeps it down with the ish stuff. oh..... if only inky were here, what an excellent mod he would be.... as would jaq. but *sigh* those 2 arent. but i think we should make sure not to push anyone into it.

okay... I am taking this very seriously here, so don't get mad at me for not putting some of you on here... LOL the people I think of as being the most mature and level-headed (therefore would make good moderators) are: LoLo, Leopold, and Cheese smile.gif That's just my opinion though and I'm sure that there are others who would make good moderators and I'm sure that Mata and Jonman will give it careful consideration before deciding!

Thanks for the vote of confidence Craziness smile.gif I would like to be a mod, but I don't think I'm here often enough for the job. I think that Leo, Crissi or LoLo would be great

If I was nominating Mods, my suggestions are LoLo and leo. Both are good folks with maturity behind them. Also on my list would be InKy, but he'd be ineffective due to his frequent absences.

I don't know whether moderators would be the best way to solve things, but I'm willing to wait and see if it helps.
