Moderator Enquiry

Hey all

I was just looking at the TA and NZ player forum and noticed that our moderator (AlexSydney) hardly ever posts in it! So I was just wondering how the moderators are selected and are they just designated a forum or do they actually have to apply for a particular forum??

I'm an active poster in the TA and NZ forum, and I believe it would make sense to have a regular as the moderator of the forum.

Re: Moderator Enquiry

I believe AlexSydney applied for the post a long time ago, when we were recruiting new moderators.
If you feel TA&NZ needs a more active mod, start reporting the posts and situations that would require moderation. That way we get an idea of what goes on in the forum. If we feel that the forum needs another moderator, we'll probably hold something like a poll within the forum. But only if the forum really needs another moderator

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

Re: Moderator Enquiry

We have started a thread in the TA and NZ forum aimed at getting some changes within the forum. These issues need to be addressed and so far, our moderator has not contributed anything. There are calls for a new moderator

Re: Moderator Enquiry

Have you tried contacting him?

Looking at the things mentioned in the thread, I must say that a moderator can't do most of those things. Moving a subforum and changing the blurb are things that can only be done by an admin.

Re: Moderator Enquiry

Could you help us out with the blurb and moving the subforum, James?

Also, could you make that thread sticky?

I'll sticky the thread and move the subforum. Perhaps it is wise to finish the discussion about the blurb before we change it. If I may make a suggestion: it is perhaps wise to have a blurb not mentioning any players. That way you would not have to change it each time. For instance: For fans of Australian players.

Re: Moderator Enquiry

Yeah but that sounds boring.. Stosur and Dellacqua are young, and Dokic will never retire - she'll always keep us guessing. We won't need to change it for 2-3 years atleast.

Only a suggestion. We will see what is decided in the forum.

Re: Moderator Enquiry

And can we still have the Tennis Australia and New Zealand forum blurb changed from 'Includes forums for Alicia Molik, Samantha Stosur and Jelena Dokic' to 'Includes forums for 'Jelena Dokic, Samantha Stosur and Casey Dellacqua'

Thanks
