New mods again - not April Fools!
 
Ok, we lost a few mods this past month or so, and needed some new victims. Believe it or not, the new mods are V1k1ng1001, X136, and Siu Blue Wind. [edit] And Blickblocks.

No, I am not joking. Congrats to all of them! :beer:

Congrats everyone! Just remember to take a deep breath and think good thoughts before you enter the A & S zone and you'll be fine...D .

I need a moderator status please :)

Tom Stormcrowe 12-14-07 07:44 AM

Max, the paradox of being a MOd is that you NEVER get it if you ask for it. We draft people rather than accepting volunteers.......

:p

And in some cases, the 'draft' is caused by the door hitting you on the way out :p .

Maxi, why don't you see about being a moderator on a nice small website, so that you can see what it's like?

In particular, WHY do you want to be a moderator here at Bike Forums?

That's a question I used to ask myself often. Perhaps he heard that moderators get all the chicks?

Hmmm, could be. Perhaps he just wants that nice BikeForums t-shirt since otherwise he's only getting a lump of coal?

Did I mention that moderators are expected to be helpful? That's a difficult skill to master when one is relatively young. Maxi, stick around for about five years or so, and practice being helpful. No whinging! No bad language! You...can...do...it !

And in answer to the question--soon :) !

You can't think of them as narsty little yellow marshmallowy things, you have to think of them as happy little multi-hued marshmallowy things.

A bit like snails and escargot :) .

Scary, isn't it?

Even more scary--the Seattle Times has a yearly Peeps contest:

Hmmm.

So I could ban people.

Is that the only reason? Who would you ban, and why?

But if you banned yourself, how could you ever come back?

The last thing a good moderator wants to do is to ban someone. There's almost always a redeeming quality in every member--the moderator's doing his or her best job when the annoying pest turns into a good member. Yes Maxi, you will become a good member one of these day if you don't get permanently banned first :p .

So, Brian asks a good question--who, and why?

And as crtreedude asks: "But if you banned yourself, how could you ever come back?"

:D

If we make Max a mod, he'll shoot his eye out.

Or his foot off. Or would he be shooting his mouth off? Both?

Come on Maxi, I'm pulling for you here :D .
