  • MODERATOR CASTING CALL!

    If you would like to be a moderator, and have the time to devote to this activity, please let me know what forums you wish to monitor.

    Thanks.

    Hallo Niquie!

    Could you tell everyone exactly what the duties of a moderator would be? We haven't had moderators in years, so I think everyone will appreciate it.

    I'll be happy to do the guestbook/film & music and history.

    If there are other forums that you really need someone for I'll be willing to do them until someone else asks for the job.

    So glad you're here!

    Cheers
    Liza

          Hi. Don't let the user name fool you.

          It's Niquie your administrator. Having difficulty with my account.

          Okay! So, we're getting into moderator mode....

          Being a moderator means you ACTUALLY SHOW UP on a regular basis to check your forums. A moderator makes certain there are is no troll infestation, and closes threads when necessary and edits out language that is inappropriate and remarks that could be deemed driven by hate, prejudice or racism.

          A moderator also has the job of keeping his or her forum interesting. Familiarize yourself with subjct matter and submit new threads to keep the action going.

          A good moderator NEVER abuses his or her authority. You cannot edit and close threads because of a disagreement of opinion. And you cannot threaten people with censure. Alternatively, moderators do NOT lose posting privileges. You may post your opinion just as before. So do not let ANYONE tell you, as a moderator, you have no right to express yourself.

          But the key to keeping a site fun, clean and interesting is to BAN TOGETHER TO BAN THE TROLLS.

          You find a troll, you let me know. These people come here for one purpose and one purpose only. To ruin the site. If they get inside, get them outside and do it TOGETHER.

            All said and done and with a better understanding of what is expected from a moderator, I am still interested. Specifically in the categories previously mentioned, i.e. OPEN BOARD and SPORT.

                  Well, on this board its going to be a full time job ;-)

                  I heartily second and endorse the nominations of Lisa81, Konsalik and WoestynRyer as moderators. I know they'll do an excellent job.

                  Set them up, point them in the right direction, and let them go!

                    so this would be the kind of thing we could edit out?

                    8th reply by Nubianman:
                    No one is going to bother with a response from a certified homosexual. That is the truth and it sure as hell hurts, so why don't you stick some Dunkin Donuts up your racist asses
                    That seems a bit inflammatory to me, wouldn't you all agree?

                      Liza - Definately.We might want to make mr.Nubian aware that there's a difference between opinion and sexual prejudice with inflammatory remarks.
                      I still believe in at least,three strikes and your out.If that was the case from the biginning mr.Nubianman would long have been gone.

                      I hope when deleting a thread a warning is sent to the user giving reasons why it's done and telling him not to do it again.

                          The minute a certifed racist like woestynryer or whatever becomes an adminstrator of the great forum, that will be the day this forum begins to die. If you are not an homosexual, I fail to see why it hurts you so much. Perhaps I have hit a wrong spot or is it that I have hit the truth.

                          And as for you Lizard88, why do you not stick to crawling? Was that not what you were created for. I am probably the one person on this board who uses the least abusive language.

                            Well, I certainly didn't care for this post.

                            Anyway, peeps, I am back. There are still a few glitches with the admin. bulletin board, but I will endeavor to get over there and put into place more moderators.

                              Thank you Niquie.

                              Let us know where we can be of more help.
                              As you see there is a lot of 'noise' on this forum but with dedication, and postive South Africans willing to help,this can become a great site.

                              Thanks again.
