Need any moderators?

    If there is a post somewhere telling how to apply, forgive me as I did not see it. I'm looking to become a mod. I administer, host, and manage 2 message boards. One is phpBB, the other is vBulletin.

    One is for cars, which gets decent action, the other is for bodybuilding which gets very little. I'm becoming quite the amateur computer geek, and I would like to be able to mod this site, because computers are my hobby......who are we kidding, life.

    If this is out of line, my apologies, but if you are lookign for new mods, or will be, I am requesting this please. I feel I would be a fine addition, have good experience running a message board, and would love to give back to this site (it has helped me with many, many issues and problems, especially dealer and his tweaks).

    Just reply here or e-mail me, thanks.
     
  2. You realize becoming a moderator means you'll be part of a team of experts who are ready, willing and capable of helping out no matter day or night, rain or shine.

    That diligence in the face of adversity is the moderator's creed.

    Where one man or woman can and does make the difference.

    Where you work long hours with no hope of a day off.

    Divorce rates among moderators top the list. The alcoholic rate is higher than that of airline pilots.

    Dedication, Loyalty, Trustworthiness..these are the words moderators live by.

    Supernatural powers are not a prerequisite, but they help a lot.

    After knowing all this, is this what you really want for you, your wife and your children?

    Does getting spat on and cussed at by trollers get it for you?

    Does it bother you to have your name listed with the FBI?

    Yes, think long and hard about this.

    :p

    Hey Not - EP really has you BS'd doesn't he??

    All kidding aside - your post is probably not that far from the truth and mod is indeed a thankless job - but one that has got to be done!

    <dy thinks - I am just glad the mods still let me hang around, insult Smokie, and make a semi-intelligent comment every once in awhile>:D

    Lol, like i said, I administer 2 forums. One gets hardly any action, the other gets a lot. I've delegated authority to another mod and a super mod, because I don't enjoy the site anymore.

    I'm looking for a place where I can contribute to something I DO enjoy, and I believe this is the place.

    Since its Electronic Punks site (more or less) I think he is the one that choses the Mods... But he doesn't like when people ask him to be mods... he asks who he thinks will do (anyway, thats what he told me a cople of months ago)...

    You can't have a criminal record and must have a clean drivers licence too.

    Seriously tho, we do pick people who have been around a while as both waddy and I have had serious problems with people who we thought would be great mods, very enthusiastic, then suddenly went fairly nutty.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad you wanna help, so stick around and help out those who are having trouble on the forums :)
