NEW MODERATORS
« on: November 02, 2005, 10:42:18 AM »
After much thought and deliberation we have decided to add two more Moderators to our FF ranks as some of our present "staff" have been experiencing their share of problems accessing the internet.  And in particular it appears Sonic may be not be able to join us for an extended period.

Thus I am happy and proud to announce that we will have, in alphabetical order -

AreWeThereYetDad moderating the Flashlight Components Forum, and

Geologist moderating the LED Mods Forum.

While AWTYD has extensive child-rearing experience and thus we look to him to apply his hard-earned knowledge to maintaining civility and order here, Geologist will also prove tactically invaluable as he is in a different part of the world and will thus be awake and hovering over FF, pulling nightwatch guard duty while the rest of us 'mericans snore away happily, secure in the knowledge that Geo is keeping matters well in hand each night.

So "Welcome Aboard" guys, we are confident you will do us proud as you go about your new duties - in a Fair and Impartial manner, of course...:headbang:

Thank you Chameleon Commander for your vote of confidence.  My first order of business will be to slap this sorry bunch of troops into order.  Nah, just kiddin.'   ;)  Seriously, I'm honored and flattered to take on the responsibility, even if it IS the sleepy little Flashlight Components section, which is akin to somewhere like Omaha, NE, where nothing ever happens to rock the boat.  Let's just see.....


Ha!  Thanks again.  See you on the forums.

Ha!  I wasn't ever a drill sergeant, though I did spend a summer in ROTC Basic Training at Fort Knox, KY.  AND I watched a lot of Gomer Pyle, USMC.   :laughing7:  Nah, most of that attitude comes from child-rearing.   :laughing6:

Congrats to the two of you anyway & remember - With power comes great responsibility!  :icon_thumright:

Actually we do not ban - not right off, anyway.  There is a progressive "Warning" system, whereby once warned you then have to have each post reviewed by one of us before we publish it (*For* you), and if no further issues come up in a short but defined time period, you revert to normal status.

But if a second warning happens during this time then more restrictions come up.  Don't recall right now what they are (we've never had to warn ANYone since y'all's been behavin' so good anyhow) and hopefully we never have to find out!  It is all in the software which has been tested and refined over several hundred other forums, some of them many times larger than either us or another flashlight forum, so we have a good, solid and proven "autopilot" system already in place.

So unlike some places where it is a short and straight path from the finger of an all-too-human moderator - who arbitrarily "perceives" a slight, however technically correct it may be - to the Ban button, our is a system of checks and balances that serves to keep bias and personal prejudice out of the equation. :headbang:
