Do you want to be a moderator?
    #319343 - 05/17/01 02:04 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Instead of posting an election, we have decided it would make more sense to have people first of all tell us they want the job, and then pick from those who want to moderate instead of the normal election which is pretty much a popularity contest....

So here's what I want.... Tell me why you want the job,  tell me you'll be here often to check in on your forum, and of course tell me what forum if any you want to moderate...

I am looking for peolple who first of all care about this place, want to actively help out on a regular basis, and I think most importantly have a level head.

So after about a week, we will look at the candidates and make our decisions.... We might have 3-4 moderators in each forum to test that out... We might also have some people moderate in a few different forums......

So who wants to moderate? :smile:

I'd like to help Moderate. I want to help maintain the community. I feel, at this time, The Shroomery is in a spiraling demise, and I want to help change it. I have been coming here for some time now( a little over a year), and I like it!! Love it would be more like it, but I am getting very frustrated with the way things are turning. I realize that the Moderators can't be here 24/7 and realize they can't read EVERY post, but with some help you could clean this place up and maintain our sacred community, and quite frankly I want to help.
I care for this place. I try to help others out and get along with all, even when attacked by some young punk. I can maintain my cool. I have made a lot of really great friends here and I don't want this place to turn to shit, or worse, dissappear all together, because ,quite honestly, I have no where else to go(lol). Seriously, though what would we do if that happened?
Well, instead of worrying about that, I want to help prevent it.
I would gladly help you guys keep and eye on the whole place--but I would feel most at home in Advanced Cultivation and Cultivation Forums. I check them out for a short time almost EVERY morning and always 2-3 times in the evening.
If you do not choose me as a Mod.,that is O.K. But, for the love of our community pick people that care as much as I do about the future of The Shroomery.
Dioze1
P.S. I think Ralphster44 would be another great choice. Maybe you could ask him if he would like to Moderate.

i wanna moderate, i have a high-speed fixed connection.
i read practically all posts and participate in all forums. i realize im a jovial sort with a tendancy to stray from seriousness frequently. but this just follows my role as a poster. with the responsibility of moderatorship i would be more serious.
i dont beleive its too dificult to tell when a post is off-topic or a problem. and i dont think i should have to say much, just lock it or move it and say why in a post if i think its nessisary.
there is however alot i would let go. im not the kinda guy that would overdo it and kick around evrything slightly off-topic or contains a slight overuse of people throwing the word "ignorant" back and forth.
i find that alot of threads, given time, will come around and right themselves, particularly if a moderator is present to be a mediator as well. :)
so ya. i pledge myself. the rest is up to you.
i like mushroom hunting, but id say its already well moderated. i dont want to put any moderators out of place, so what moderator positions are open?

Thor..I would like to help moderate any forum on here. where ever U think I would be best at. I am here everyday usaully for a couple of hours, sometimes several times trough out the day and night. If I had to choose a forum that I would like to moderate then it would be spore exchange are spore vendor, mush cult would be nice as well, but really I would be happy to serve anywhere on the board. I disagree with the previous post about the shroomery being in a spiral dimas are something, I don't think that's the case at all, I have seen it calm way down since U and mjshroomer took over as admin. U guys have made some good changes here and it's kind of more on a level playing field with U guys as admins, we knew U before and it's kind of more of a friendship type bond here now.

If of course I was selected as moderator I would approach posting info in a different light, if I had something bad to say I wouldn't say it at all because I realize that if I wanted people to respect me as a mod then I would have to respect them as an individual as well.

anyway, I don't expect you guys to choose me, but I am willing to step up to the plate and be in the batter's box if You will allow me too, thanks

I'd like to be a moderator, preferably of the Spirituality and Philosophy forum, but it's taken care of pretty well right now, so if not that, Political Discussion or even OT would be cool.
Reasons why? Well, I'm here constantly anyway (cable modems are cool), and this has been my favorite site since I found it almost 1.5 yrs ago (read for a while before I joined), so there is no way I'd do anything to damage it or take away from its integrety, etc, etc
As I'm pretty open about most things, I wouldn't abuse my power or any of that sort of stuff, as longs post stayed away from pointless flame wars, they do usually turn back towards topic, as Michnast said.
And I'd get to have one of the cool "M"s by my name in a flag. That's the main reason...

Taz you are right... The Shroomery as a whole may not be in a spiraling demise, but the two forums I would like to Mod. are(IMO). Did you read the post by the 7th grader in the Cult. forum? It was titled "cop questions". If you did you know what I'm talking about. The Advanced Forum is no longer filled with the expertise it used to be. Lots of the experienced people have been ran off by "Basic" questions and young punks that know absolutly nothing about what they are talking about trying to tell everyone that is experienced how it is done. There was a post asking "what would happen if you mixed spore pollen?"-- Is this an Andvanced question? When I replied " I'm not sure why such a silly-ass question is in this forum--the answer is, Nothing. Mushrooms do not utilize pollen." It caused the original poster to fly all to shit and wage a 4 day war on me, and even go as far as to tell me I was wrong and had no idea what I was talking about.
These things, along with MANY others is what prompted me to say that. Jesus, that 13 year old KID is cultivating Pan Cyan.
Can you imagine what could happen if he suceeds? Let's say he eats 5 grams to get some"killer visuals"---Whew!!
I don't care who is chosen as long as they honestly care about the future of this place.
Good luck to all!

I would really enjoy moderating Mushroom Cultivation, since that is the area of most concern. I do not know a lot about the subject matter involved but I do have experience moderating and can easily spot problem threads. I stand behind my reputation and hope to be found worthy.

i wouldnt mind being a moderater.
i read every post in other drugs and otd.the spirituality forum is kind of over my head and im not into cultavitaing.
id like to moderate otd because i spend a lot of time there.
i wouldnt delete any post and the only way that i would lock a thread is if there is enough of a demand,or if it is spam,somebody trying to sell drugs or anything illegal.
i spend probly 4 hours on here every night and twice that on the weekend so i wouldnt miss much.

PSYCHO FOR OTD MODERATOR!

    #319532 - 05/17/01 06:53 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

my humble opinion on how many mods are needed per forum:

cult 3-4
adv. cult 2
gen questions 3
hunting 2
other drugs 2-3
spirituality 2
political 2
gathering 2
media 2
vendors 2
trip tips 2
edible 2

I suggest minimum two for all just because one person will go away for awhile....ones with lower traffic can definitely overlap.

I am knowledgeable in many subjects relating to mushrooms and would take pride in returning the shroomery to it's glory days. Thor or whoever is running this competition please consider me I would give great effort to were ever you put me. PM me is you have more questions

3D and I really wanted to get out of moderating, especially mush cult since its so busy... So he picked 2 people right away to fill that spot.... Its a welcome relief for me and 3D to get out of moderating :smile:

But the week thing still applies, some might moderate a couple of forums, just depends on how many qualified people offer up their services... I'm also wanting to see just who of the current moderators still looks at the board, so if you are currently moderating and still want to moderate you better reply to this post.. Otherwise I'll assume you don't frequent the board enough to be a moderator.

I'd like to moderate the Political discussion, well if your going to have more then one mod there anyway. I wouldn't want to step on Agent Cooper's toes!

I've been lurking around for three or four months, reading the tek's, and various forums. I signed up about six weeks ago(probably haven't been around long enough, what the hell, doesn't hurt to try!), because I decided I had to get into some of the political discussion!

I'm pretty into politics, so it would fit me well.

I usually pop in at night for a time before I hit the sack, and sometimes in the morning, so I have plenty of time to make sure things aren't going haywire.

I'm pretty loose with my censorship views, I'd let pretty much anything go other then blatant off-topicness and uncalled-for slander, (in an intelligent discussion, name calling has no place).

That's my case, and I'm stickin to it!

Thanks guys for the promotion. :)

Only one problem. I'm Senor_Doobie and I think you appointed Senor Doobie. They are both my handles but I prefer to use Senor_Doobie because of the underscore. You can delete the other one for all I care, but I'd appreciate it if you changed it so that Senor_Doobie is the mod.

I wanted to say something else but I forget what it was. Anyway, thanks again. I'll do the best job I can.

Cool Doob, nice to have you back where you belong :smile:

I realized that we needed someone right away to replace Ripper and LuciferX.... So I gave dioze1 Adv Mush Cult and I added gourmet/edible/mushrooms to mitchnast's forum....

bivalve replaced LuciferX in Off Topic as we discussed before, but we still need one more me thinks for that forum...

Don't worry, there are plenty of spots still open..... I think mjshroomer will lose his moderatorship since he's not often here anymore.... I'll ask him first just to be sure....

For all current moderators please respond to this post if you still want to keep your position, if I don't hear from these following people I will assume you don't want it, or just don't have the time: Psylosymon, Ojom, Phluck, georgewash

I like CJ's list, I think that sounds right for the amount of moderators per forum.. So lets see who else wants a job and we'll fill those spots up within the week.....

For the moderators who just got instated, please notice you can now access the moderator forum, so if you have questions, need advice, or want to share with us some dirty porn then please do so there :smile:

dioze1, yes I see what you mean and yes I seen that post about the 7th grader, and I think u would make a really good mod, now I know I haven't been here along time but I thought hey if I can help I'll do the best I can. I used to take people too serious on here now I mostly try to ignore ignorance unless I feel some newbie is about to get misinformed. ok, i was viewing the shroomery as a whole when I posted I thought it was getting better, you were view a certain area that you like the most and that's ok to that is great. and you are absolutely right about the experienced ones getting ran off so to speak. anyway, I would be happy to be a mod even if it was the least popular forum. (less visited) I do hope they put you in the cult forum, it seems to me that is where You really want to be and you would do good there. I wish U the best of luck and I'll see ya around, (I respect yer passion man)

Thor, it's possible to check into a forum you moderate 8 times a day and still not catch this post in the Suggestion Forum, so you might just want to send a PM or email to those guys.
