    Moderator and Forum Steward Candidates Wanted

    Have You Ever Wanted To Give Back to the Forums?

    We're looking for a few good people to fill some key volunteer staffing slots. We're introducing the idea of a Forum Steward, for one thing. Think Moderator Light. They will help steer and develop topics and hopefully defuse conflicts before sanctions wind up going out. They will also be the pool we draw full Moderators from as they learn their jobs.

    We also need a few that we can promote right to Moderator with some training. Do you have good people skills? Do you enjoy challenge and using your mind to solve problems? This might be right up your alley. We're not looking for "The New Sheriff" Hitting town, though, because a perfect moderator action should be like an Olympic dive, no splash, few ripples and no drama.

    Both the Moderator and Steward groups are volunteer slots, and if you are interested in either, shoot me a PM with a paragraph or two about yourself and how you think you might be a contributor. After a year service as either a Mod or Steward, You will get Ti bennies for life if you leave on good terms and Mods also receive Ti bennies as will the Stewards, as part of the package, so no ads.

    Minimum standards:
    1 full year membership and a good solid post history
    If you have a ding or two in the past, they might not hurt ya.......after all, what they do to forum Trolls....the worst ones, is to make them Site Administrators!

    What we care about is if you got dinged in the past is did ya learn, and can you do the job?

    We do ask that in either capacity, you participate regularly and join in on our response to issue dialogs.
    You must be able to keep confidential information confidential.....what is discussed behind the scenes is always kept confidential.


    Hope to hear from you soon. Contact any of our Admin Staff via PM with a couple paragraphs as to your interest and anything you think will be relevant, and we'll place you in the consideration pool. If you aren't selected, just remember,all that means is that we needed a CF frame vs Steel is all.
