Firstable, Im talking in the name of some of the Spanish Armada posters.

I'd like to say that we have nothing agaisnt Gallofa, but we were wondering...how can anyone who never posts in our forum become a moderator? There are lot of people who spend the day posting there and giving lot of information about the spanish players and frankly I think they also deserve to be moderators.

We are not saying that she is not ok as a moderator, but we would prefer someone who daily post in our forum, who colaborates in all the threads, gives information, and knows the rest of the spanish armada posters, and frankly we dont think gallofa has all this, as she never post.

We are like a comunity, we make our own non tennis there, because its the only place we can talk in spanish so we know each other spanish poster and we are all friends, so we are a bit surprised that none of us is the moderator.

As i said we have nothing against Gallofa, indeed i know her and she is a great and nice person, but we dont see the point she is the moderator when she never participates in our threads, never opens others and does not know most of the posters...

Yeah, I was susprised when I found out that Gallofa had became our new moderator... To be honest I don't even remember when was the last time that she posted in our forum, and as anabel says, there are many other posters who really like to post and discuss in our threads.

I always thought that in order to be a moderator you should (at least) read the threads, and I dont think Gallofa spends much time reading our posts... Bea, there's nothing wrong with you being a moderator, but I think this is not the most appropiated forum... or at least there should be another moderator who REALLY colaborates.

I totally agree with Anabel.

Alberto
May 27th, 2002, 09:26 PM
Yes, I was really surprised about that.

If this forum needs a moderator, I think Gallofa is not the best for that, I mean, It should be someone who really knows all about this...so, I totally agree with them

May 27th, 2002, 10:44 PM
Well, I think that the Spanish Forum doesn't need a moderator. I agree with Anabel and Tot, as Gallofa almost never posts in the Spanish Armada Forum and I don't think she will have the time to read all our posts

propi
May 28th, 2002, 03:38 PM
Nothing against her but all above it's true

Poe
May 28th, 2002, 07:18 PM
we are looking for moderators who are willing to maintain sites

are any of you interested in maintaining a site for a spanish player?

Gallofa
May 28th, 2002, 09:26 PM
omg! I have been moderator for what? 2 minutes? and already I have a riot - that's Spanish people for you :D

Nacho
May 28th, 2002, 09:47 PM
Bea, just 1 question: did you want to become the Spanish Armada moderator? Did you asked for it?

Nacho
May 28th, 2002, 09:48 PM
oops those were 2 questions, my bad :rolleyes:

MS
May 28th, 2002, 09:51 PM
poor bea ;)

Who wants to be moderator? We can make an election ;) (I'm not a candidate, btw, lol) (nobody would vote me, but just in case :P)

Nacho
May 28th, 2002, 09:58 PM
why poor bea? why didn't say anything against her
We just thought that it was too weird as Bea doesn't really post in our forum

Sonja
May 28th, 2002, 09:59 PM
It appears noone wants to give her a chance. What a shame...

griffin
May 28th, 2002, 10:07 PM
How incredilby rude (what'd you do to them? cut off their sangria? make them cook with Italian olive oil?).

Given Poe's question, I'm assuming no one else saw fit to apply.

So first, have the decency to give her a chance, and second, if you have a problem you should take it up PRIVATELY with Poe.

If you'd bothered to look around some of the other player area on the system, you might have noticed there's more to the job than just moderating your threads, and I've seen Gallofa's sites NOT TO MENTION THE ONE'S SHE'S HELPED OTHER PEOPLE WITH before - trust me, she'll do the women justice. As for actually moderating the threads in the forum, if you don't have problems there, why assume there's going to be a problem?

Nacho
May 28th, 2002, 10:39 PM
We were just wondering why a person who isn't even ineterested in the Spanish Armada forum has become the moderator... I'm sure Bea adore the spanish players, but I'm also sure she doesn't really care at all about this forum, or at least it seems so.

So now Bea is our moderator...ok, there's nothing wrong with that, but we just thought that it was weird... We don't pretend to be rude, and sorry if we were, but you must understand that we were very surprised when we found out who our new moderator was...

Griffin: this is not a private problem. All the posters from the Spanish Armada forum wanted to know why Gallofa became our moderator, so that's why we posted this thread. We don't have any problems with Bea and WE ARE NOT ASSUMING THERE'S GOING TO BE A PROBLEM.

anabel
May 28th, 2002, 11:05 PM
I think if you put a moderator for a forum, its because you want that person to "moderate" it...

I wonder how a person who never post there can moderate something in which is not interested...

Thats what we are saying. Its like if TOT or me are moderators for the Seles forum or the Williams forum, a place where i never read or post.

I think we are not interested in mantain a player web site, but we are not talking about a web site, we are talking about the person who will moderator the forum where we most post...

And hey since its not 1 or 2...if you go to the spanish forum you will see that all the people who post there has already post here...

Gallofa
May 28th, 2002, 11:18 PM
Anabel, if there is something I think Poe knows is that I am extremelly interested in Spanish tennis. I think it's the one thing most anyone in this forums that know me would tell you.

I am surprised at this. I don't really see why you would have a problem? you guys can also be moderators as Poe has estated. I am going to have a site about Conchita and I discussed with Poe the fact that a whole forum about Conchita would probably be wasted resources, so I am guessing people with websites about Spanish players are moderators on the Spanish Forum. Now, I'll abide by whatever Poe decides, but as far as I understand it, a moderator is someone who can be trusted to keep the forum from becoming abusive, towards posters or players, nothing to do with who has the most posts. I think if you look at some of the other moderators you will see they are not always the ones who post more often. I believe I can do a good job at that, and I really do not understand why all the uproar!

Oh yeah, and let me add, I have nothing against any of you either :D :p

Dag!

Hello Estonia, this is Brussels calling.
And here are the results of the Belgian vote :

Espa˝a doce puntos :wavey:

Of course I would never, and I repeat, never, have given that score to Spain if Gallofa was in charge. :p

anabel
May 28th, 2002, 11:26 PM
i think you have not understand us.

We are not saying you cant do it good. We know you love Conchita and the other players, there is nothing wrong on that.

We are just saying that you for us is like a stranger, because you NEVER participe in nothing we make there, so we dont understand why you have to moderate something in what u have never been interested. Its not about the spanish players, its about the forum.

You see that all the people who post there is here, because as we said its like a comunity, because we are spanish, and we cant speak spanish in other places of the forum, so we make our games our non tennis and our general messages there, and we do us the people who post there and are all friends, and suddnely we are moderated by a poster who we even dont know.

You should understand how that makes us feel. If it was ok we were not being here...

Nacho
May 28th, 2002, 11:27 PM
We are not saying that we would be better moderators because we have more posts. Bea, you know perfectly what we are talking about. How many times do you visit our forum per month? 1? maybe 2?

Sonf@
May 28th, 2002, 11:28 PM
Pfff Josh you should take this conversation more seriously not like a joke...

Josh
May 28th, 2002, 11:53 PM
Fine then :mad: :p

Like Poe said, Bea will be the webmaster of Conchita's site on the WTAStarz network. Part of that job includes moderating the forum. Now since Conchita is part of the Spanish Armada, Bea has been made a moderator of that forum. If any of you want to be a moderator as well you just need to apply for a website on a Spanish player.

It may be true that Bea hasn't contributed much to that forum but now that she's a webmaster, she also has a responsability towards the forum that is part of her website on Conchita.

Sonf@
May 28th, 2002, 11:57 PM
;) Josh

When did you put that signature? ;););)

anabel
May 29th, 2002, 12:00 AM
Well seems you dont hear us, or you dont undertsand us, my bad english is not my good point...

We are not saying she can not be, you can ever put as moderator of the forum the hingis' fans, willima's or all the australian poster, and for sure they will also moderate the forum, and i think good.

what wer are saying is how we feeling with someone who is as a stranger for us moderating the forum where we spend lot of time, where we have made lot of work to update all the spanish things, and where there is already a comunuty made. If Gallofa wanted to moderated the forum she first should have been interested in us and in all our threads and post, and we have not seen that, so that is why we are feeling this. Its not because Gallofa, it would be the same with other poster of the board who is not from the spanish forum comunity.

Its like if you put us moderating the Seles forum. How do you think the seles fans would feel

I think we are not expressing nothing strange, its just the feeling of the people who post there, but seems like you dont mind about what the people who has made that forum alive says.

Nacho
May 29th, 2002, 12:05 AM
The question is: Does Bea really want to be the Spanish Armada moderator?

Josh
May 29th, 2002, 12:27 AM
I understand what you are saying but it's not like Bea will suddenly change threads or posts or will tell you what you can and can't post. However since she's webmaster of the Conchita page, she might create a few threads related to Conchita.

Making Bea a moderator is more a technical thing so that as a webmaster she can add certain things related to her site.

So does any of you want to become moderator for the forum cause that can be arranged :).

:p@Sonfo

anabel
May 29th, 2002, 12:37 AM
Yes josh, thats the thing...

We all want to moderate the forum because its our place. As we talk all there, so i dont see what a "few threads related to Conchita" would make.

Its Tot, sonfo, kkovafan, nueva_armada, propi anabel and Alberto who wanna moderate the forum, because we have been for a year alone there. We have make that forum a place for us. We dont post our threads in generals non tennis or games, we post them in the Spanish Armada, because its the only place where we can talk in spanish, where we can post our free thoughts and we dont want that to change, and putting someone who is not us moderating us is like to breaking all the charm, because its not us now, its us and the stranger now.

and this sounds like, oh so you are all you and no one more? No it is not that, in fact we started two and we have become 6 or 7 and it can grow yes, but Gallofa has been in this board for a year, and she never has cared about us.

ITS NOT ONLY TENNIS again!!! We dont post only tennis there, thats why a few Conchita threads wont help. Its that all the poster who post there are friends and we know each other.

and we feel the spanish armada forum as our house, and now our house is being moderated by someone who has never lived on it.

Poe
May 29th, 2002, 05:14 AM
We all want to moderate the forum because its our place. As we talk all there, so i dont see what a "few threads related to Conchita" would make.

you can't all moderate it

the main reason that we even introduced player forum moderators was to give the site webmasters control over their boards... I don't see how Gallofa being moderator of the forum prevents any of you who used it before from carrying on as you always did

Gallofa has experience running player sites, she is a fair, wise person and she applied to be a moderator , so we chose her and the site she is going to run applies to the spanish forum... as she already said, she doesn't think conchita's popularity warrants her own forum.. so the site will share the spanish one.. and there may be future spanish player sites that share it as well....and those webmasters will also moderate... whether she has never posted a single time in it before is irrelevant because she didn't have a site before, and now she will, and her site shares that forum

If you also want to be in charge of posting information for particular players and run a website for them, that is fine... let us know which players and you can help moderate the forum as well... but if you don't, then i can't really understand your protest and there is no need for you to feel put out... because you can still use the forum as you always did

i hope that explains everything to everyone's satisfaction but if not, by all means let me know

Firstableas a tennis fan as Conchita being my fave player, i dont understand how a person say that Conchita's popularity does not deserve she owns forum, when there are in this board forums for players that are nothing in comparation with Conchita, as Alexandra Stevenson, Mikaelina, Hantuchova, Sandrine, Majoli etc...

Once, you said that Arantxa & Conchita have not their own forums because the fans of the Arantxa & Conchita are also fans of the spanish players.

Thats abosulutly false. In this board there are a lot of players who are only fans of Arantxa or of Conchitam and i could name more than 20. And they NEVER post in the Sapsnih forum, because its not the Forum of Arantxa or Conchita. In the spanish we discuss about Conchita and Arantxa yes, but also about Torrens, about Riera, Ramon, Parra, about Ruiz or Gonzalez and retired players like Alcazar. And the Conchita & Arantxa fans does not care about that; as i said 3000 times, we use that forum not only to discuss about tennis, we also use it to talk our things in spanish, like the rest of the posters does in The other forums of the board, but since there is not a spanihs place in thsi forum for the people who speaks spanish, we use that. And thats why there are not non spanish fans of conchita or arantxa there, because they dont care about most of our threads which are not about Conchita or Arantxa. So make a Conchita or Arantxa forum and put Gallofa to moderate it, because we even dont understand how Gallofa wanted to moderate the Spanish Armanda, when she never cared about what was said there. Its if i want to moderate the ATP Forum, it would not make sense.

I think a moderator is a person who has to "moderate" something, but to moderate something you have to read it and show interested for it, and Gallofa has not done it.

Originally posted by Poe

we chose her and the site she is going to run applies to the spanish forum...

That also makes a non sense for me. She is making a site about Conchita Martinez. The people who will visit her site will only like Conchita, they even cant like the rest of spanish players. It will be very unconfortable to suddnely see the Spanish Armada used by "only" Conchita's fans. Because the people who post on it are fans of all spanish players. And thats why the fans of Conchita or Arantxa do not post there, because they only care about 1 spaniard.

In my opinion, in all what you are saying, you should make a Conchita's forum, and let the Spanish Armanda being as it always have been, because thats how we loved it, and we are telling you that we are not liking the changes you are doing and it seems like you dont care at all.

Gallofa
May 29th, 2002, 03:44 PM
Well, since I have to go now, I'll post this too here, I have sent this to you by PM so that maybe we can discuss this as adults?

Anabel, this is bordering on a personal attact to me, and I have done nothing to grant it. I am not sure who is this *we* you are talking about, since I talked with Alberto and Alfonso yesterday and to my face, they didn't have a problem with the estate of things, I am sure nor does Cristina. Nor do Poe, Josh, Sonja or griffin apparently.

If you had addressed this concern to me or to Poe, or even in Spanish in the Spanish forum, I would have probably voluntered to help you guys have your own moderator too. Now, what you are all proving is that you have a clique in there and want to keep it like that. You might believe it's your home, but in fact, it's just a string of code in a tax paradise somewhere in the Pacific, and it belongs to the WTAworld community, not to a clique of 5 or 6 people.

I will not interfere in any way with all your posts, and my being moderator is just by name, since as has been stated I know my place. Or at least that was the original idea, I am thinking this whole attitude of yours might concern Poe as to what is truly going on in that forum.

And both you and me know what kind of threads you often have in there. Because yes, I do read the forum. You might have noticed I am one of those people around who read a lot and not post all that often (only over 1 post a day).

I am very sorry you felt the need to go about this like this. But I have to say, I am having none of it, I won't be bullied, and if you don't like this change, I don't like the fact that you don't like this change.

I shared this once when it was felt there was a need for tighter rules on this board. I have a site about Arantxa, and I allowed people to talk freely, as you do in the Spanish forum. People abused that freedom, like you guys do in Spanish in the Spanish Forum. Once I was in a different board and someone was talking about what trash my board was and who on earth was allowing such conversations on it. I felt ashamed and inmediatedly set up rules and started moderating with a stronger hand. It reflected on me, on all of the participants and on Arantxa herself to allow such behaviour.

Now, whether Poe keeps me or not, let me add, that personally, I think the Spanish forum does need a moderator.

Nacho
May 29th, 2002, 04:31 PM
Well, what about having 2 moderators? Bea and someone else? I think it would be a good idea :)

Alberto
May 29th, 2002, 06:46 PM
Gallofa, I would like to remark something that I told you yesterday night... Nobody agree with your status of "moderator"....because is not fair, I mean, we are a group of friends and as well as Anabel said, you are like a strange for us...I told you that I wouldn┤t mind you moderating our forum if everything continues being the same...I mean , like you not being a moderator in this forum.

and nothing againts you, of course ;)

anabel
May 29th, 2002, 07:08 PM
Bea, i feel so sorry you have taken this on a personal way. It has never been. You are who is making this personal. I sent you an email yesterday in a way which this board had nothing to do on it, because i think i had somethings to clear up with you, and it is you who have answered here not me.

If i started this here it is because i am talking with the administrator not with you, because as i have said so many times it would be the same with other people who we would not agree on the decision.

Its nothing against you, we dont know you, so we cant have nothing against you, so dont say this is personal because i cant have nothing personal with people i dont know.

I dont know what Sonfo or Alberto have told you to you yesterday, i know what they have posted here and all what we have talked together about this subject we 5 ( TOT Sonfo Kkovafan Alberto and me).

You might believe it's your home, but in fact, it's just a string of code in a tax paradise somewhere in the Pacific, and it belongs to the WTAworld community, not to a clique of 5 or 6 people.

Yes, we already knew that that place means nothing for you, but for us it does and yes its like a paradise, because we spend lot of time a day there reading and posting. We care about it.

I will not interfere in any way with all your posts, and my being moderator is just by name, since as has been stated I know my place. Or at least that was the original idea, I am thinking this whole attitude of yours might concern Poe as to what is truly going on in that forum.

The thing is why u wanted to be moderated of the spaniush armanda, since you only care about the big names. And i have seen you posting in general, non tenis etc.. but no in the Spanish Armada. For me not to post in a forum is a sign of not being interested on it. I simply just dont believe you read all our threads as you have said, simply because most of that threads are non tennis threads so i dont see why you would read them.

In just my personal opinion is not nice that you said things like "there is somthing going on in the spanish forum that should be revised" thats a first sign of threat, and thats what we are against, hey and a threat after just 2 or 3 days..

Yes, of course sometimes we say bad things in that forum, and what? I think there is nothing wrong if i am frustarted to Seles or Williams when they have just defeated our fave players. The thing is that we post it in the spanish forum, where there are not seles fans or williams. We dont go to generals or to players forum to do that, where people have post much more bad things you will never read on the spanish forum.

and one thing that personaltly has hurt me... and which i think you should be sorry about :

And both you and me know what kind of threads you often have in there. Because yes, I do read the forum. You might have noticed I am one of those people around who read a lot and not post all that often (only over 1 post a day).

I am very sorry you felt the need to go about this like this. But I have to say, I am having none of it, I won't be bullied, and if you don't like this change, I don't like the fact that you don't like this change.

I shared this once when it was felt there was a need for tighter rules on this board. I have a site about Arantxa, and I allowed people to talk freely, as you do in the Spanish forum. People abused that freedom, like you guys do in Spanish in the Spanish Forum. Once I was in a different board and someone was talking about what trash my board was and who on earth was allowing such conversations on it. I felt ashamed and inmediatedly set up rules and started moderating with a stronger hand. It reflected on me, on all of the participants and on Arantxa herself to allow such behaviour.


Thats the sign why we dont like you moderating us. Because you dont know what you are talking about. WE never has posted something which could be bad for any spanish player, because me and the other love ALL the spanish players, not like you, so ourselves wont admit that.

That show us why we dont want you as moderator, because u are judging us without knowing us or what is written in the forum. All the threads are there, you should go there and tell us what bad things we have done or said.

Of course there are somethings which are not apropiated, but its because we can trust in each other member and we know where the limits are. Yes sometimes i have going against Anabel Medina, but just cause its Sonfo's fave so we made a friednly fight about Marta vs Anabel. Does not mean i dont like Anabel, she is one of my faves. Same with other examples. We do it in a friendly way because we know the others, not like you who dont know us and for that u write things like u have write above this post.

More than ever i think that you moderating that forum would me more than a mistake. Its clear we dont like you at that post, so it wont be very confortable to write there knowing that YOU AND ONLY YOU have taken this to personal ways and attacks.

I wonder that without us, what the hell will you moderate. So i think its more important what the members who post there and make that forum alive said, than the opinion of someone whose answer has been so personal and so meaning....

Sonf@
May 29th, 2002, 07:16 PM
I cheer for Tot's opinion about having two moderators and I suggest anabel to be the second moderator. And this will be the last thing I'll post here as this is becaming a second "Big Brother"

propi
May 29th, 2002, 07:37 PM
I agree, as always!!!
Maybe having two could be the best solution !!!!
Gallofa + anyother who wants to, if someone else does, if not then Gallofa should be the only one I think.
Peace for you all

Sonf@
May 29th, 2002, 07:57 PM
I agree for: Two moderators, one of each side, but if not, I would prefer any moderator in the forum, I mean no one.

[S@nti]
May 29th, 2002, 07:58 PM
I agree with Anabel, TOT, Kkovafan...
But, What does a moderator do??
And I think like sonfo, Anabel can be the 2nd moderator, or propi, Alberto, kkova, TOT.... who post in our forum everyday

propi
May 29th, 2002, 08:12 PM
it's better if I exclude myself from that, this year I can visit daily because of the internet service here in Blefast, but back to Spain I won't be able to do this !
And I'm leaving in less than a month!!

Nacho
May 29th, 2002, 08:40 PM
so we all agree anabel could be the 2nd moderator?

[S@nti]
May 29th, 2002, 08:55 PM

Well i cant speak for poe, but it concerns me. :rolleyes:

What i dont get is that the spanish armada is intended as a forum for fans of the spanish players to cheer and remark about there faves. Not a little online community for 5 or 6 people, irrespective of whether that happened before or not.

I think you may have been let of easily without moderation in the past and i doubt that anything would have changed within oyur community :rolleyes: with gallofa as moderator, if oyu hadnt have highlighted your disdain at such an appointment.

By creating this thread you have only bought attention to yourselves, and it certainly appears that you have not been using the forum in the way it would have been originally intended and as such i have to applaud the appointment. It makes me beleive that there is a need for it to be moderated and externally, It is of course up to gallofa at how she moderates such a forum.

All i can say is good luck Gallofa - im sure you will do a fantastic job :D

Scotso
May 30th, 2002, 05:10 AM
It is a personal attact and it's shameful.

anabel wants to be the queen of the spanish posters but she's not.

and anabel, just because you post a lot of scores and inane bs in a forum so you can make it have more posts than the others doesn't mean that you contribute much. you post a lot, but it's no major contribution, sorry.

TOT, I'm surprised that you went along with this :(


Congrats on your appointment Gallofa, however I don't envy your task.

anabel
May 30th, 2002, 09:36 AM
I give up on this.

This is getting in a dirty fight that i dont want to be in that.

This forum is called " Bug/Error Reporting and Questions ". We had something to say, and seems like people does not like it, even when people who has nothing to do on it cames here to attack people without knowing whats going on.

In a personal opinion i feel very ignored, because nothing of what we have said have been considered.

Personaly, i wont continue posting in that forum, because now there is not a a good realtion with the post who moderate it, who has took it in a personal way, and because i dislike how thing have been done.

It was a good forum, where all the spanish players were represented, a place for spanish talkers to talk, where we were happy posting and where we have never made a damage to anyone, and suddnely that has been broken with all this stupid war, that i have started but never as a war, others has made this of it.

Congrats for that...

MS
May 30th, 2002, 10:30 AM
Calm down people!. I'm surprised about all this taht is happening here.

I just suggest everyone continues posting in the same way they were posting, and I don't think there will be problems, I'm sure Bea will be a great moderator, I don't really see any problems in her being our moderator. (I'm one of moderators in MagŘi's mailing list and I have never forbidden anything..so far ;))

So, my suggestion is: don't stop posting, nothing has happened here and everyone try to be friends, as easy as this, and of course, continue supporting the Spaniards, anyone has his/her faves, but just respect everyone!

propi
May 30th, 2002, 02:03 PM
Sorry to all you but since I don't know Gallofa You can't consider this a personal attack
I'm sure she's really good as moderator but it is true that I have never seen a post from her in the Spanish forum

Huh??? Did I insulte anyone??? All I said is that we were very SURPRISED with that decision, that's all! We wanted to know why a person who is not (apparently) interested in the Spanish Forum is now the moderator.

Ok, I admit that maybe we were too rude, but please forgive us, we were kinda mad.

Then Josh & Poe told us that Bea was our new moderator because she is a webmaster and they were exactly looking for people who wanted to be moderators & webmasters. So now we know why Gallofa is the moderator, and now we are suggesting that there could be 2 moderators, Bea and someone else!

Julie, it's true that the Spanish Armada forum is not only for 5 or 6 people. We are happy when someone posts in our forum, and you could see that whenever someone asks something in our forum we always answer him/her and we try to be nice with that person. Of course we want people to visit our forum, but it seems that not very people is interested in it, and it's ok, we have nothing against that.

However it's also true that normally 5 or 6 people post there. And let me tell you something: we aren't saying that the Spanish Armada forum is OUR forum. We are not more important than anyone else in that forum, so everyone who like the spanish players (or even who hates them) can post there whenever he/she wants.

People, you must understand that we just got amazed when 3 or 4 days ago we entered in our forum and we read: 'Moderator: Gallofa'

We all thought ''Gallofa??? Why is she our new moderator if she isn't interested in this forum????'' Now we know the reasons and we understand the decisition.

Please, POE, GALLOFA, JULIE and all moderators in general, don't take this as personal attacks as I've already said, it's just our point of view, and anyway it's you who have the last word, just take a fair decission and I will accept it, I will not complaint, but say something at least to make your possition cleares to us or at least to me how the situation is right now,
Thanks in advance

As already been said, the reason why Gallofa was made moderator is because she's webmaster of the Conchita site. It wasn't her intention, as she said before, to tell you what you could and couldn't write.
Every site of the WTAStarz network has its own messageboard, which is in fact a player's forum on this board. The Spanish Armada was created for fans of all Spanich players which means that whoever makes a site on another Spanish player will also become moderator of that forum.
Why do we need a moderator there? Simple, because people who will visit the Conchita site (or any other Spanish player's site in the future) might visit the message board and post there and it is the moderator's job to see if they don't abuse that forum.
Now I understand that you don't like to see that happen cause you have created your 'own place' there but remember that it still is a public forum, intended for all fans of the Spaniards.

There is really no need to worry as Gallofa is not some kind of dictator who will control everything in that forum. You can just keep on posting like you did before. And if one of you would like to become a moderator as well, you can always ask to become a webmaster of the site for the Spanish player of you choice. :)

I suggest a thing. I'll put an example. There would be two moderators in the Armada's forum, for example, Gallofa and Anabel. Gallofa makes a Conchita's site. Anabel makes another Spaniard less Anabel's site ;) for example, for Gisela Riera. THen I think they should moderate ONLY their respective threads, I mean, the threads that are made by fans that comes from their sites, but letting all the other threads alone.

What do you think? I think is the most reazonable thing.

Solution....... make a Conchita forum and Bea can be moderator for that, then one of you can be moderator of Spanish Armada.
