heads up: If you'd like to help moderate the board, you should read this thread from beginning to end.

Alright,

Our ship is seaworthy again, and I gotta admit, I'm really beat. My crystal ball is telling me it's time for a vacation.

Don't worry, I won't be far in case any emergencies arise. And you can bet I'll probably be posting as usual. But let's just say we put her in cruise control for a while.


How we're going to fill the moderator openings I reckon... for our purposes here, just for now, every 100 posts are worth 5 karma. Whoever has the most karma-cum-posts gets first pick of the litter.

I recommend you choose to moderate the boards you're less likely to be posting in regularly. That will make it easier for other moderators to award you karma if you're being helpful (you shouldn't be able to give karma to yourself)

You don't have to read every post in your board, but you should try to scan over hot topics at least. In general it's up to the population to report positive or negative posts to moderators. At that point it's the moderator's duty to take action.

If anyone feels a moderator isn't cutting the mustard, make a case, and the moderator will be reviewed and dealt with promptly. Feel free to PM me if you have a bone to pick about a moderator.


That said! Let the bidding begin...

yksehtniycul...Emillio's post count is "666."  I'd say that's a bad omen, lol...  face15

Anyways, I'm game if you are.  Any place will be fine for me.

Yes, I was going to mention the 666 post count just for fun, but I've been having internet trouble. Errr, actually turns out the old router was on the fritz. I thought something was funny after three attempts to reply failed and cause the internet to clam up (actually turns out Vista was dropping the ball)

If there are no requests for specific forums, I'll divide just divide up the three forum groups amongst you by post counts. If we can get more than three mods we can start subdividing them.

You can decide which you want amongst yourselves. If there is any dispute, Karma wins, no hard feelings.

If you are to be a mod, all we ask is you do your best to login once a day. Reports however should go to your registered email address. So it's more important you be able to check that daily.

Who knows? spit But Damn, I also forget to mention it on my 666 post  doh

Sounds good to me. I've never been a moderator but I guess once we put it on practice, things will become more clear... I hope so  geno

QBasic deleted his own account (awaiting approval)

Presumably he did so because he couldn't have his way with this thread:

http://www.digitaldevildb.com/bbs/index.php/topic,749

I've gone ahead and made Emilio moderator in the game boards -- provided he doesn't mind  rainbow

I also put you in the Global Moderators group, which turned out to be necessary for certain required privileges. All future moderators will be in this group as well.

We could still use more moderators. At this point we wish those of you long associated with the board would step forward. As this makes more sense than having new users with low post counts be appointed mods.

Can you confirm for me, you can split topics in boards which you are the moderator, and cannot in boards which you are not?

Either way, you will be able to give karma on any board.

Exactly, I can only Split topics on the boards I'm a moderator but I can give karma on every board.

Just so you know.... there are also other privileges you have besides splitting topics. You just gotta look around the interface. For instance at the bottom of the page there should be some options.

Yeah, now I have this options:

Move Topic  |  Lock topic  |  Set topic sticky  |  Merge Topics  |  Link to Calendar     

BTW I tried to give karma to a user who have 17 post but 0 karma, and the system (like you say) permits me to give only 1 karma at a time, and I need to wait 1 hour between points. The user is "Maverynthia".

Ah, thanks for letting me know. I will leave the locking privilege, but you should only use it in extreme circumstances just to buy some time to decide what to do.

You should only give Karma for specific reasons. If a user has 0 Karma, just report them (bottom right of each post) with a message to give them Karma. As a mod you can only give/take one Karma per hour (and you should post why in the precedents threads)

I will even Maverynthia out to 10.
