as you all know.. the zug is growing, so I think it's time we bring on a few forum moderators. basic duties include:

- keeping threads on topic within the forum (qt discussions in the 'sharp roms' forum, pdaxrom discussions in that forum, etc.)

- if spammers post crap on the forum (rarely happens), delete the thread

- deal with bashers, etc. (in a nice way... unless we need to be more harsh which is where an admin comes in, also rarely happens)

- splitting topics when the thread gets out of hand (multiple topics in one thread should be split into seperate threads)

- merging threads (when people don't search before posting, and creates a new thread when there's already one (or more) already discussing the topic

- etc, etc, etc.

so, if you want to be an admin for a specific forum (or more), just post a note here saying so.

note: you don't need to have been a member for ages, or an expert on the zaurus. just be respectable to others, blah, blah, blah...

thanks!

Pick a forum(s) to moderate, and I'll add you.

Thanks!

Don't know whether I'll be able to handle all this responsibility ;-) but the least I can do is help out.

Stick me on whatever (OZ is probably a good starting point).

I'd help out, too. But I don't want to take over a forum myself, maybe there's someone who could share one with me (if that's ok with offroadgeek, of course)? I think that'd be much better than just one moderator for one forum.... anyone interested?

Cheers

How about we pick two and share responsibility for them. That way we've got some backup smile.gif

I'll take Security and Networking, and Linux Issues if thats ok with Offroad.

Okay, count me in. Is there some kind of documentation available for how-to-do-what, or should we just click our way through to do whatever we think is necessary?

I trust there's nothing to do for us than wait until someone says "ok, now you're moderators" or "no, you won't be" ?

If you're still looking for help, I'd be willing to lend a hand smile.gif I'm still relatively new at this though...

sorry, I was away for a few days, and I'm finally getting caught up now that I'm back.

both you and jamesm have been added as moderators to the 'security and networking' as well as the 'linux issues' forum.

I'll hopefully be writing up a 'forum moderators how-to' real soon.

thanks for the help!

I'd (possibly) like to help out, if there's a need.

Possibly pdaXrom (if Laze needs help there... otherwise he's doing a fine job)

Possibly X/QT (low traffic, may not need much moderation)

Possibly Linux Issues

Possibly Off Topic (as a battle-hardened Troll, I think it would be a good fit wink.gif )

Possibly Sharp ROMs (though I'm running them less often these days)

Possibly regional ZUGs (english-speaking ones, or possibly babelfishable ones too?)

Possibly others? Though, not all of them at once.

I'm open to expanding the boundaries of my ignorance to incorporate new realms
for me to be entirely ignorant of, too.
