Jezlad thought this deserved its own thread

For those who are interested we will of course need more moderators as we expand. The more members we get and posts we are getting per day, the harder it will become to keep an eye on things and we'll need the extra eyes. For those who are interested i thought i'd say why it was we decided to invite Frozenorb to join the moderators. Myself and jezlad we both impressed with his posts, they were well informed, helpful and friendly. Although its not important to post alot, it did help because we noticed these things in his posts. He was particularly helpful to those who were obviously new to the hobby, which is especially important because we are trying to build a community, and many people can ask questions that may seem silly to a veteran, but they really do want our help, not comments like read the rulebook etc...

Anyway we keep an eye on peoples posts, and keep a short list of people who we think may make suitable mods, adding people to the list or taking them off by recommendation. when we feel we need to expand the team furture we then talk over the various candidates and possible pay even closer attention to there posts over the coming days until we settle on someone who we feel is right for us.

just out of interest what do you think of my posts, i mean they arent great but i can definitly improve. i was a mod on another 40k forum, but it shut down because others got better advertising. i mean i would be happy with just one topic or sumthing. i know a bit about the rules on some obscure chapters incuding the CMOX (Chapter Militant of the Ordo Xeno), which is my army. just an idea, why not set up a thread for obscure chapters and their rules, like clarify obscure things.

The point is not that you have just a "good post."

It has to be coherent, eligible, not stupid, ie, not spam.

They also should be helpful to other users. It also helps to be detailed and well thought out.

That is what makes an exceptional post.

Well, given that to be chosen as a moderator, you generally have to be a valued member of the community, and that such things aren't really valued, I'd say it wouldn't help. Things like helping people with genuinely useful information, traficking with the irritating people calmly and usefully, not going over-the-top in replies, and generally being a font of 40K knowledge tend to get you there.

I'd be more than willing to do my part, as I have some moderator expierience as I run a forum for our local gaming group.

Obviously there are probably people better, but i'm always willing to help out. :D

No offense people, this isn't a "tryout."

When the forum grows to the appropriate size and we mods see that we need another mod to..mod...we'll base it on the said criteria.

Please don't bug to become a mod. :\

My guess is that Jez and company will invite someone to become a mod if and when another is needed. That is how most forums usually handle it. And in general, the ones invited that didn't 'apply' for it end up being slightly better mods as they tend to be more 'in the background'. At least, that has been my experience to date.

don't see the problem TBH in ppl talking about wanting to be a mod and why they feel they should. Its a nice easy way for us to all guage who would be willing to do it before Jez or someone sends of a lengthy PM asking them.

I'd say cary on with the discussion lads. Its interesting to see what you all think is needed etc

Does dyslexia make it difficult to use punctuation or capitalisation in addition to simple spelling? I don't actually know.
no but continually attacking ppl for their lack of doing so is never gonna do you any favours Uber. In fact i am getting quite tired of seeing you do this, subtle or unsubtle. Please take this a gentle hint to cease and desist. Picking at ppls spelling, punctuation and grammar has no relevance to 40k, GW or anything else on this forum. So please stay true to the subjects discussed.

Also picking at someone who has Dyslexia gets me very angry, do not do it again. You aint Dyslexic, you have know idea what its like (yes dyslexia can mean you are almost incapable of writing anything legible in some cases), i am and i do.
