    New Mod option

    Well it seems that there may be an empty seat in the moderator box. I was thinking that a great person to be considered should be one of our own beloved Foosters, Stacey.

    She is even handed, well educated, highly respected, compassionate, fair and has been with BikeForums for some time now. I think it would be a great asset to have someone like her to be able to be a part of the moderator family. What do you guys think?

    Why would Stacey want that hassle?

    Poor mods. It's a hard job mucking out the stables. Little glory in it and a lot of work.

    They do a pretty good job keeping BF running smoothly.

    I think she might be interested. I'm sure she can handle it too.

    Problem with being a Mod is that you have to be *very* careful about expressing personal opinion because you now represent more than just yourself in every single post. - a little bit of wisdom from another Mod here on BF's shared with me some time ago.

    - something to think about for anyone thinking of being a Mod here or on any board.

    Wow....take some time off to enjoy life and the whole BF takes a shift! Just the evolution of internet sites I guess. For what it's worth, I think if someone wants to be a mod they should approach Joe themselves. It's not a decision to be made lightly. However, I think Stacey would be an excellent mod should she want to pursue it!

    How about no new moderators? If there is a problem, existing moderators can be contacted. Heavy handed moderation is unnessasary.

    This thread reminds me of that scene in The Fellowship Of The Ring (the film, not the book), when Frodo asks Gandalf to take the Ring of Power from him.

    "Don't..tempt me, Frodo!! I would only wish to use the ring for good, but through me it would be a power to great and terrible to imagine!"
    -Gandalf the Grey

    ^^ That's what it would be like to have Stacy as a mod. Too great and terrible to imagine. Love ya, Stacy! *smooches*

    Yep...very much Yep..I can't rip into people like I used to, I always have to wear the mod cap. Its a tough gig in that regards.

    How about no new moderators? If there is a problem, existing moderators can be contacted. Heavy handed moderation is unnessasary.
    The work load is quite a bit and koffee did a tonne of work. And to be honest, I agree about heavy moderation, but its been proven umpteen times in the past certain types of members can't moderate themselves and follow the rules. Koff's seat as a mod needs to be replaced.

    We are amidst discussion right now about who and what direction we will take with the new mod.

    Why Siu, I'm both honored and flattered. I'll not decline your nomination and will serve fairly if chosen. I feel that a balance of camaradre (sp) and responsibility can be maintained in spite of my irreverant and sometimes ribald sense of humor, not to mention my horrific spelling.

    Let's see what the good ol' boys have to say after they have a chance to palaver(def 3)

    Thanks you sis and everyone else.

    I do like Stacey, but should it be someone who can moderate the Women's BF, like Koffee used to?

    Stacey's a woman so she could mod the women's BF. That whole part of BF is like a wondrous mystery...

    A mod has to be able to objectively assess the situation without taking sides. Don't feel like stacey could do that.

    Cuda is awesome. I'd like him as a mod. Never seen him say a single rude comment on these boards.

    Aside from the Woman's BF thingie (which I don't understand at all: cycling has nothing to do with one's gender. If gender is so important, where's the Men's Forum?? eh? No answer.....), how about you of the Mod Squad concentrate on competence and ability first?
