Modship.

I think we need some more mods around this here place, things are fun but some things have been said that have been going overlooked. Feeling have been hurt.

We need two mods from two different worlds.

I nominate Siu .

What do you look for in a Moderator and how does that process work? It seems like people just start being mods all of a sudden. Obviously there's some behind the scenes communication, but is there an open application process that I'm missing or is it like a moderator secret society where you get together and identify candidates? Nothing wrong with either way, I'm just curious.

ps. I have no interest in the job. Nothing really offends me, so I'd be inclined to leave all sorts of questionable material on the boards, but I'd be deleting all sorts of things that I personally find dumb or annoying. So I'm really not qualified anyway

At least in Foo, it seems like the "locals" are the ones selected. If you only frequent these boards once in a while forget it.

There is a discussion with all the mods about whom we think would be a good fit. People that are active at times of the day when needed. Its mostly a discussion and goes from there.

Okay Maxi. How about this.


Why would you want to be a mod?
Do you feel that you can be fair and honest in your handling of certain situations?
Can you provide a balance and be even keeled?
What are your objectives for being a mod?

In honor of both your posts, I wrote this little poem:

One of you is right on track
the other one is smoking crack
a mod named Siu just might do
while one named Max would make me spew
