I agree, Mark would also get a vote from me as a possible great moderator...

To everyone here, I am a moderator... and when I get the emails that have been reported I do come here to clean/close threads move and delete ass approprate... but you have to realise that I am a busy person...

I have a job, I have to have time to travel to work, and back. I have a social life, and a girlfriend who I have to give time to as well as giving time to these forums... it's not like we are paid to be here, it's a sheer generosity thing you know!!!

I do sometimes cmoe on at work, but thats not really something I should be doing as I am actually paid to do work whilst I'm at work, I'm not paid to sit around on forums!!

The problem with promoting anyone to a mod is everyone here, has either work/school/college and everyone also has a life outside of that, and a life outside of these forums... without a team of thirty or more moderators there is no way that a mod coul be on here al the time!!! and if there were 30+ moderators imagine the amount of arguments that would go on about what to do with users!!!

I have to agree with root about the work and social life thing. Not only do I have a full time job I run my own shop AND a forum of my own. And moderate here. It's called a full plate.
As for the mods not being here full time that's the reason most forum software has the report post function. So they don't have to be in lurking full time. With as many of us now modding here we're bound to get in in a reasonable amount of time and take care of business.
Now as for Mark and Dishdog. I couldn't agree more with the description of them. But a mod has to maintain an aloofness about them. When it comes to dealing with members, friendships have to be set aside. Other times we're just one of the gang. If you two can do that then you both will make great mods. You have my support if and when you come up for the position.

How about me?

I may have a pretty low post count in the grand scheme of things, but I'm mature and sensible, and can easily spot where an argument might erupt.

I'm also quite friendly, I don't get involved in flame wars or anything. And I can put a polite, quiet lid on things when they get out of hand.

I think Mark Thorpe would make a excellent moderator. He has a lot more maturity than a lot of the members I can think of, to take up my old spot as a moderator...




Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh for Mark!
