We could do with our own Mod(s) here. Comments, suggestions please.

With the unpleasant intrusion into our forum last night - the worst of which has now been removed - I PM'd Burisleif to say that I really think we need our own Mod for our forum. One of the things Burisleif said in reply was:

Quote:
I definitely think their is a case for a couple or three mods here in this section to share the load of admin and moving posts around, deletions etc. I think it unfair to burden one person unless they are really up for it.
I think that's a very good point.

I also said that the Mod needs to be a respected poster here who has the backing of most of us who post here. Also needs to be someone who is on the forum and not just here once in a while. And finally of course someone who would be willing to do do it.

I'm not exactly sure how we go about it. But I'd like to hear comments and if you agree suggestions for who before I suggest anyone.

I wholeheartedly support the suggestion, if it's at all possible.
Yesterday was something else
I'm probably not contender to do it (newcommer, technically deficient and easily stressed) though, but will root for the one that's up for the task.

(will return with relevant suggestions if I come up with some)

Re: We could do with our own Mod(s) here. Comments, suggestions please.

It's definetely a good idea to have one or more moderators dedicated for this forum. There was actually a site announcement almost exactly a year ago that tennisforum wanted moderators for the "Scandinavian Sweeties" forum. Anyone could apply, but they (admins) would look at the poster's history etc. before making any decision. But it seems like noone was interested (or qualified)?

The tennisforum admins were aware that the need for moderation would be needed in the future for forums like "Scandinavian Sweeties" (w Caro's increasing popularity/success) and other forums as well (Tennis Belarusia, for instance). The announcement didn't get many hits, so I tried to draw attention to it in one of the Danish Delight threads, which led to a very brief discussion on the subject.

Re: We could do with our own Mod(s) here. Comments, suggestions please.

Like the rest here, I think it's very much needed, especially considering recent trends.

As I mentioned to terjw, the Admin post asking about Moderators IIRC made no promises that it would happen. I don't know who applied (perhaps if anyone did they could mention it), I know I didn't being a newcomer short on time etc.

I think it would be helpful to know more about the duty demands of such a role etc. for users to make a more informed decision as to whether they are able to meet them, and hence the possible need for multiple lesser roles.

Frode would be a good person to ask, however as mentioned to terjw, he appears to be a huge Reds fan so might be a bit busy for a few days

I think it's definetely needed as well, this won't be the last time the trolls will be coming for this forum. The less attention they get in GM, the more they will come here..

Agree with the need for mod(s) here..
Really sad to see people of 20+ years show such little respect for other people, meaning the fans here and in the other players forums, that they come and post their harassments etc. in here where it's supposed to be constructive talk, we have GM for the other stuff alltho it's been allowed to go way too far there too.

IMO,Burisleif would be a good choice,as evidenced by how he shows a restrained,reason response even when he disagrees with or doesn't particularly like the offending poster

Burisleif is definitely a poster here I think would be a really good Moderator if he would want to do it. I can think of a few others who I think would be good such as C.W.Fields and DownInAHole and some others.

Either someone with a desire to do it can put their name forward. Or if not - perhaps we could come up with a shortlist that we would like. And ask them if they would be willing and of those that say yes - we could ask if they discuss it between them.

So I'd be interested if any one would really like to do it and some names people think it would be worth asking if no-one volunteers themself.

C.W. seems like a good choice. I don't think I've ever seen him get into an argument with anyone in GM so he must have a very levelheaded and judicial temperament.

Hopefully the unpleasant recent posts were an anomaly and there will not be too much work for a new moderator to do.

C.W. would be a good choice for a mod for the reasons stated above.

I wasn't online last night so I didn't see what went down. I saw a few obnoxious posts but did it get worse than that?

Re: We could do with our own Mod(s) here. Comments, suggestions please.

After yesterday's events in here, a Mod definitely sounds like a good idea. I'm all for intelligent and thoughtful discussion in here about tennis, it's why I lurk around here most everyday. But the hate and taunting of players is just uncalled for, it's why I won't post over in GM or most of the time, not even look over there.

I'm for any regular in here with a least a few thousand posts that would be willing to take on this task.

A Mod who will take charge of Scandinavian Sweeties sounds good to me. Anyone who will do the this job proper, is more that welcome.

I think Burisleif is right about Frode beind a huge reds fan and might be busy for a few days. I did PM him but so far am still waiting for a reply. Anyway - when I get a reply I'll let you all know on this thread.
