Moderator Search Starting

I am going to begin to search for at least 1 moderator at this time. I am going to start here first.

If you could choose one person here on the forum to be a moderator who would it be? Must be someone other than yourself.

I hope this search will help the process withou having to bring in someone else from the outside.

Thanks

I couldn't dissagree with those choices in the least..

I'm gonna throw this out there as help for choices, since I've been there..

The choice MUST have a level head. You can't explode, (at least online) no matter what happens.

You have to have time to actually wander in here everyday, and have access to email in case some jerk is starting something or posting spam/porn/etc and someone emails you about it.

You have to attempt to understand all sides of the situation, take a breath, and then understand it again before making an action.

You have to understand that deleting something will eliminate an issue, while closing it will only advertise the situation and cause more issues.. (We've all seen this, haven't we?)

And last, the person has to be someone who will continue to use the site, and will retain the desire to come here and do this job..

Moderating doesn't pay very well, and sometimes it's a pain in the butt.. But, you tend to get more personal with a lot more users than not being a moderator.


That's my take on it. I was a moderator for several years, and NO, I don't want to be a moderator here since I don't have access to the site on a daily basis due to constant travel and long hours in a papermill.. I just want nominators and nominatees to understand what they're doing, completely.. The "other" site had some great moderators, and some of the worst I've ever seen.. It's a mistake that doesn't have to be made again..

I couldn't agree with you more. That is if he's interested.

I think Biker Scout already showed some interest in doing it, didn't he? Any of the guys mentioned so far sound good.

Lots of good people out there. However if bikerscout showed interest, then it sounds like a winner to me!

This process allows me to narrow a sites worth of members down to a few recommended by those who already have experience with them. I dont any members of this site from any previous experience. So it is not easy to grant mod permissions with out first getting feedback, Once the list is made it will then be up to the individual to show proof of experience and ability to handle the job in an unoffencive manner. I take my sites very seriously and will not have someone empowered turning things into a nightmare, when it only takes a little homework.

Thanks to everyone for the help so far. Its all in an effort to make a site for the members, after all you guys know what you want, I'm just here to make sure it gets as close to that as possible.
