Forum moderators wanted!

Post by fonixmunkee » Mon Apr 02, 2012 8:50 am

Hello all,

In order to keep the board running smooth and spam-free, I'm sending out a request to everyone here who participates to become a moderator for the forum.

So what does a "forum moderator" mean, and what do they do? It's easy, really...a forum moderator lords over one of the many sub-forums on the board and keeps an eye out for spam posts, misplaced posts, or off-topic posts in their respective sub-forum. You will have the power to delete or move posts as you see fit.

If you are interested in being a moderator ("mod" in cool internet lingo), please reply to this thread with what sub-forum(s) you'd like to moderate. I'll assign you privileges and you'll be on your merry way.

Available forums for moderation:
  • [strikeout]Trails and Campsites[/strikeout] Thanks MikeT!
    [strikeout]Weather and Bugs[/strikeout] Thanks drobarge!
    [strikeout]Trip reports[/strikeout] Thanks Rafiki & Tom!
    [strikeout]History[/strikeout] Thanks drobarge!
    [strikeout]General Questions and Miscellaneous[/strikeout] Thanks Rafiki & srparr!
    Pictures
    [strikeout]Other places parks[/strikeout]Thanks alecto73!

I'll stick with Trip Reports, but add me anywhere else if you need the help!

I sent you a PM. I don't know how I missed this thread. I really need to pay more attention to the sticky items listed on top which are segregated from the normal posts.

Hello Fox. Is there a way to be notified via email if someone flags something on the forums or at least in the section I have been assigned to watch over. While I like to try to get here everyday, sometimes I get caught up with things and don't make it to the boards. However, I am constantly checking my email, so if and when someone flags something and I know about it, I can always make it a point to investigate the matter. Right now there is a guy that has spammed a thread in the transportation boards. This is not my section, so I flagged it for dmbhiker to take notice of so he can do something about it.

Unfortunately, no, but it's something I can look into.

We've recently lost some forum moderators, so I'm bumping this thread to see if anyone wants to help moderate the forums with our team.

The job is easy...especially with the newer version of the forums software we're running. The biggest task as a forum moderator is deleting spam posts that may come up in your threads you're responsible for moderating. Other tasks may include keeping a thread on topic or moving it to a new sub-forum if its posted in the wrong area. Really, it is a simple job, and it makes a great resume bullet (joking).

So, if you're interested in being a forum moderator, post here and I'll send you the details. It's simple and fun, and gets you more involved with the forums and the users. Thanks in advance for any volunteers.
