New Moderators
« on: March 18, 2009, 09:06:02 am »
Anyone interested in being a moderator for the new forum?  And if so, which sections would you be interested in moderating?

If you want to make someone an admin so you don't have to run the entire forum on your own, I could do that.

Naw, I'll stay as the admin for now.  I don't mind running the site.

You've proven that you cannot.

I also would help out, but I'm wondering what's entailed?  ...I guess I'd go for Flipside Discussion, but whatever helps.

Does being completely clueless about what a moderator has to do disqualify you tho?

I'd be happy to help moderate Flipside Discussion, but you yourself seem to spend plenty of time there as it is, Brion. I don't frequent any other parts of the board, though.

Basically, all you really have to do is keep an eye on your section of the forum, delete spam if it pops up, and handle any problems that may arise by moving unwanted posts to the Graveyard.  You probably won't be banning anybody, except for maybe spammers.

It was extremely rare for us to need to ban anyone from the old forum, except spammers.  There were a couple of people who got mad that I deleted some of there posts and left, but that's a different story.

You've proven that you cannot.

that's not entirely true. I've moderated several very successful debates with myself.

I'll put my hand up for the rpg area.

I'm already doing the RPG area for Shadowgirls so *shrug*

And/Or I can watch out for spam everywhere else.

...and I promise not to derail a chapter thread again  :-X

EDIT: I'll take the risk of putting my hand up for the debate/politics area as well... That should be interesting *lol*

THAT LEAVES US WITH:

Flipside Discussion: Xshu, Admiral Apocolypto
Free Talk:
Hall of Games:

Artists Den: Deatzh
The Debate Room: Charles
RP World: Charles
OOC Talk: Charles
UNSPECIFIED: UmperIsSexy, Pozf

Um Charles I believe I was the first to go for "Flipside Discussion"?  That is still my first choice.  And I believe the Admiral opted for "Maytag's Playhouse", which is...um, Games, Free Talk, and some other stuff I can't think of right now.

I wasn't aware that helping out all areas was undecided   :P

It's not a first come first served thing, just tell me which area or areas you would prefer, and I'll pick out whoever I feel is the best candidate.

You're right sorry. Maytag's Playhouse is all those areas, NOT Flipside Discussion.

THAT LEAVES US WITH:

Flipside Discussion: UmberIsSexy, Xshu, Charles
Free Talk: Admiral Apocolypto
Hall of Games: Admiral Apocolypto
Pop Culture: Admiral Apocolypto
Artists Den: Deatzh, Admiral Apocolypto
The Debate Room: Charles
RP World: Charles, NightWraith
OOC Talk: Charles, NightWraith
UNSPECIFIED: UmberIsSexy, Pozf, LordKat, Charles
lordkat's Brain: LordKat


And heck, I threw my hat in Flipside Discussion and UNSPECIFIED as well *shrug*

EDIT: Missed NightWraith's bid on end of the last page for the RPG areas.

that's a good way to do it.  That or cage matches.  I will just restate then that I can be flexible, though I wouldn't really want Debate, roleplay, or Art areas, just because I don't usually read them.  But my name is already under "Unspecified", so I guess that's all set. :)

Charles, seems like you're pretty much the best candidate for the RP forum, so I'm thinking of going ahead and making you moderator for there.  Any objections?

Nope, no problems and thanks for putting that trust in me.  As before, I'm already a MOD for the Shadowgirls RPG forum area... Which I'm actually not doing a lot of RPGing in now-a-days, but I still manage it (lots more work because its quite structured and needs a lot of upkeep from myself beyond just enforcing the rules.)

Actually the RP forums will probably be the most work around here.  Brion makes the rules for the other areas and generally we just have to watch out for spam.  Obviously there's the abusive user posts as well but they're fairly rare and you gotta be picky and careful with them too (After all, these are Flipside's fans and some of Brion's bread and butter).  As always, the difficulty of striking the balance between allowing freedom while not allowing a poster to drive off fans and not being so strict as to drive them off yourself.

I think that freedom of the RPG area, Games Hall, Debate Room and Free Talk area are what makes the Flipside Forums so popular as they are.  Seriously Brion, you got a great forum running here.

And once again, thanks for the trust you're putting in me.

I'll help out if you need me.
I'm mostly active in the RP section, so that would possibly be the best place to put me.
Awkward hugs are my speciality.

Of the remaining areas, which would you like?

I could do Free Talk, if you already have someone for Flipside Discussion. (which is probably for the best, it can get busy and heated in there at times, and not making a huge time commitment would be a good thing)

Yeah Free Talk seems good.  And sorry about being unclear there. :-[
