Default Thank you Moderator

As far as I know, aside from Admin, this forum has only one moderator.

A forum this busy really needs more than that. Our Mod hardly gets to ever post at all, she's so busy cleaning up filth.

But you would never hear a word of complaint from her, she is good and loyal to the core.

So what do you think, Admin, can't you get some more help around here?

If there is anyone interested in the position perhaps if you contacted Admin, it could be put in place.

I'll take this opportunity to say a heart felt thank you to our moderator for keeping this place clean and safe for us.

And no, I don't want the job!

Aww, if you hadn't said you don't want it, I would have said you're a good nominee! LOL

On that note, I do agree... This forum gets a lot of spam posts, I've noticed. I don't tend to say much unless they're just being blatantly annoying, if it's just one post I won't even bother unless there's something I can do about it... But they usually get taken care of fairly quick.

I would nominate our most active members, those being Irene Jims, krzekmaya, KatrineA, and others... I, also, would be more than willing to help out, and have a lot of background in using forums, and I do moderate one, and run my own forum off my web server.

Hehehe !! Yes, we have the best mod over here. Busy running around with her broom and dustpan without any single complaint ...What a hard work she's been doing here. Otherwise we'lll have even more spams here !!

Actually Acer had an attempt to nominate me (yesterday) ... but honestly, I think she is more qualified ! Maya will make a good one too... And Brandon, as an experienced member - why not you help us out ?

I wouldn't mind in the least! This forum has been great to me, and I don't know where I'd be without it... I would love to help out.

Forget about me, dear. I don't have so much time to answer the threads
& you want me to be a moderator?
Some months ago I said no to a Admin's request & "send" Mary instead...

Moderators need much more than just knowledge of cat health and behavior.

You have to have a very strong stomach to be a moderator, because the mods are the ones exposed to all the filth that is posted here. I'm not talking about porn, I'm talking about the abuse pictures and stories that surface. I can't deal with that.

You have to have mediator skills, this forum does not have a lot of arguments that I've seen, but still a mod has to be impartial. A moderator has to have restraint in the way they post. I'm not very good at being objective with things I feel passionate about (as we've all recently seen)

You have to field complaints, lots of people PM mods with complaints, and then piddly 'how do I' stuff, too. 'How do I stuff' should be posted on the board, but some people don't realize that and turn to the mods instead.

However, the worst part of the job, in my opinion, is keeping the site free of Horror and animal atrocities. I just don't have the mental and emotional stability to be exposed to that stuff.

Brandon I think you would do a good job. Working in a shelter, you already must have a way to keep your defenses up against the abuse cases. Why don't you PM admin and offer your services!

I'm sure there must be some sort of training involved. Moderators usually have their own forum not viewable to the public eye where they can talk things over and support each other. It would be nice for our mod to have that kind of support with a couple more people.

I participate in several pet forums and sometimes get PMs with offers to be moderators in forums people are trying to start up. I always say thank you, but no thanks.<shudder>
