I realize I probably won't be chosen, but I would like to state seriously that I would like to be a mod. I think I am qualified and I certainly am sick of all the nasty stuff I see. It makes me sooo mad that I can't do anything to help keep this site great.
I think that having one moderator per forum isn't enough. Even the most dedicated members here need sleep and a vacation from time to time. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, since for instance the support forum only needs to be moderated once a year. But this isn't the case with some of the other forums, which seem to need constant monitoring by the moderators.
Two moderators should easily be able to handle one forum though, as long as they've got clear guidelines from the administrators. They shouldn't have to worry about offending members if they delete/edit posts, as long as they can justify their actions by those guidelines. I don't see any reason why people should be allowed to post links to warez/porn sites, if people want such material (I know most do) they can find it elsewhere, it's hardly difficult. And what's up with all the people asking for serial numbers in the Software forum, haven't they learned how to use a search engine ? Why are they bothering us with such posts ?
And we need to get some of the OffTopicers (they seem to have formed their own clan) to visit other forums.
Name db 4fh, 75h, 74h, 6ch, 61h, 77h, 36h, 39h is a good example of what they should do, he's started posting answers to questions (Although he really enjoys quoting the MS Knowledge Base)
(Nothing wrong with that, there's a lot of useful information there)
They already employ 'super-moderators' that are doing an effective job.
The very same moderators of this forum have complete control of the other forums, as well.
They are active in conveying their thoughts to the members, and are very willing to accept your input.
