CCL Badly Needs an Active Moderator!

Since Ingrid took her leave, it seems to me we don't have an active moderator and I think the time has come for us to get a replacement for Ingrid if she's not coming back (she did a great job).

Between the amount of off topic posting going on and the latest troll invasion, with all due respect to everyone here, I think we actively need someone who has the power to delete certain posts and move others to more appropriate threads. Ingrid used to do this very well and with great tact and restraint (so that puts me out of the reckoning ).

Anyone else thinking like me today?

If so, how do we go about getting this done?

OK, I totally agree and to be honest: I was thinking about sending a PM to any mod asking what the possibilities are. I know it's hard to believe for someone who has in the past been responsible for the off topic stuff, but I have learned my lesson And I moved the troll stuff to the talk thread as you can see. But all that to the side: I don't know how we change someone into a mod and the better question is: Who would make a good mod? It has to be someone who can be here everyday, not every month or every week.

Lynx and Nicky are the obvious candidates and impeccably suited to the task

Well I think we have to be a bit discreet about this. I'm not sure how all of this works, but if there was going to be a new moderator people would need to express an interest first I think. Maybe Nicky and Lynx don't want the job or don't have time. Also, there are others I think would be good at the job too, I wasn't suggesting that they are the only candidates.

ok, guys make a poll with candidates (so everyone who's interested should be in it) and then we're gonna send the results to the admins...

I totally agree with this also. First I think we have to figure out how the new mod thing works, before picking a person out.

I've sent a message to the Webmaster asking how this is done. I've said that neither of our current mods appear to be active in CCL currently, that we want to be able to use mod powers as required (mainly for moving off topic posts and dealing with troll invasions ) and that we want to appoint maybe 2 new ones from our number by democratic means. Let's see if I get a reply.

Try just sending an email direct to [email protected] That way worked for me. The same happened to me when I tried to contact the webmaster about why I was only initially given $50 vcash intead of $500. When I sent directly to that email address I got an answer.

OK thanks for the advice We'll have to wait and see how the next e-mail will go, if it doesn't work again, we'll try that right away.
