Suggestions for moderators
« on: November 11, 2008, 07:10:47 AM »
Hi Guys(and lady)

Some of the events that have taken place on the forums of late have highlighted the need for having additional moderators on all the forums. Please recommend at least three people you feel may be suitable to fulfil this role and by the end of next week(21st Nov) I will put up a poll to run for a week to determine who you choose as moderators to assist Kay to sail this ship.

Those of you that have already make suggestions on the forums rules post, please enter the names in this post again.

Hi Abe,

I say Shaun, Greg, you and maybe Dave (DevillEars) if he's prepared to come back.

Cheers

Gert

I don't really know the other mods, but Greg and Abe I've dealt with, so they get my vote - especially Greg I should have known who dingbat was the moment the first LOOOOOOL! appeared!).

Ok Shaun already said he can't, and so did Gert. Vendors and manufacturers seems out as well. I personally don't have a problem with Martin.

So here's my list:
Ampdog
DevilEars (if he decides to come back)
Greg
Family Dog

@ Pavel, I know this is a thankless job. But as I mentioned many times now, this is a great place to meat people and get some diverse information. The person that thinks he knows everything is a fool, and this is the place to learn more. Thanks for your dedication.

To be a little more accurate, I don't mind being a mod, I just don't want everybody tio think I'm biased if I do decide to do something commercial. That's all ;)

Naw, the first time he defended Yamaha and KEF I had him pegged :D And I lie with a straight face, I have been in contact with Greg on the odd occasion ;)

In that case I really don't see any problem.

Put Gert on the list.

Current list of nominations:

- Ampdog
- DevilEars
- Gbyleveldt
- Greg
- Family Dog

Have I missed any? (Shonver indicated that he's out.) Should we have one list of moderators across the board (except for AVSA Discussion) or should we stick to a couple per board as we've had up until now?

Seeing as the above are nominations by other people, these members may still choose not to be a part of the vote.

Dingbat, oh noes! Don't tell me you've switched to valves too? :)

I'd like to nominate Martin (Timber_MG, should he be willing to accept the post) for the moderator of DIY discussion and DIY Resources boards which he's looked after since the start of AVForums.

Good list of nominations so far, we may be able to put the poll up earlier than expected.

On the other hand we may not need to post a poll and appoint all these guys as board moderators

If Gert decides to design a HP amp with valves I wont say no. But the current HP amp fookin rocks
