Post by Adrian on 9th July 2010, 12:59 pm

A few months ago I laid out my vision or the forum and how I intend for us to grow and develop. On of those thing is to have have one forum member with specific skills and experience to run each sub forum i.e someone with excellent foraging experience for the "Food for Free" sub forum, someone with Investments experience for that subforum etc. It maybe that some have multiple passions/skills/experience and may end up running more than one subfora if they so desire and at my discretion.

Now what I need is not only experience and skill in each subforum, but also a commitment of time, to be able to keep topics moving, to be the resident expert if you will. There will
be, as time progresses, disagreements, so there will be an element of traditional moderation as well, but I hope that we can work as a community and keep disagreements friendly. But above all a drive to share knowledge and to bring new content and topics to this site, to disseminate new ideas and thoughts on how we can live our lives the way we want.

The current team of AngelinaJellybeana, Wilhelm Von
Rhomboid, MrsNesbitt, and Akuma will act as Global Moderators, and be there to cover whole sections (as well as run certian subfora) and will be the people that the individual experts can rely on as arbiters etc. They each have extensive experience in moderating fora and will be there to guide as needed. I will continue as site admin and be the final arbiter on disagreements, (but lets try and keep things so that isn't necessary) and may keep the odd subforum as my pet subjects, unless/until we get a subject expert in those areas.

There is one last thing I want to stress. In other fora, becoming a "moderator" is seen as a kind of promotion, a rising above the "herd" of other members and the joining of a special club. That is not so here, anyone who takes on a resident expert position runs only their relevant forum and no other, there will be no lording over sections/users the way some mods behave in on other fora. (I am not referring to any one forum btw, it is just a general observation from the many fora that I have used in the past). Staff who dominate others rather than encourage will find that they are not forum staff very quickly, we are all equal here.

So, the question is, do any of you feel that you can offer time, experience and sufficient subject knowledge to run a subforum? If you do and are interested, then send me a pm detailing what you can offer and remember that I don't expect you to be logged on 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, I'm more interested in skills and experience and commitment to your field than spending all day online. Passion is the key.

Finally, this is not a job for life, so any staff can come and go as their time and lives dictate, so please don't feel that an offer now means being chained to the forum forever..

I should add that even though all sections show a staff member as "moderator" not all are permanent, mainly us covering areas while we look for staff, so if a section is your particular area of interest, let me know.

Thank guys, I appreciate the offers.

I am keen to increase the staff, so that we get closer to the one section/one staff model I favour. That way we can concentrate on our topics of choice.

but I will look at redistributing if we get no more volunteers.

Thanks to WoodTroll btw, who was first to offer and now looks after the workshop for us..

I would also add that you don't have to be a longstanding member of the forum to help, so long as you have the passion and the skills in the area that you would like to help run, then I will welcome your PM.

Badger - as I've said before I'd love to help but with LMC here now I just can't commit the time. Possibly once things get a bit easier though...

Many thanks to all those who have volunteered though as I really do love this forum and appreciate all the work that people put in to keeping it going! :bigclap:

You should have said which "Penny" Badger. I just had to call the onr I belong to into the study to ask her if she PMed you to volunteer.

She isn't on every day like I am. I haven't volunteered because we can't see everything. Intentionally have lots of plugins not available so we get a "plugin needed" message rather than the thing trying to do something impractical over a slow phone line.

But if a moderator with that limitation would still be useful.........
