I’m too much of a drama queen for the gig. Nerp for me, but ObsidianFang and Pooney4u have pretty easy going personalities that convey perseverance and a striking lack of mood swings. They are pretty even keeled. RoughMonkey has some pretty smooth politicking going on lately, but nobody would let him get away with it. You’d have to pull his tail. I would.
MudnBeer would be fun, but I think it’s too hard for him to keep a straight face. It’d be fun, though.
The others like to talk tech a lot, and I can’t follow it. They’re opinionated, but not mean about it usually. They’d probably be good candidates too, but I’m not sure you could make them do it.
Dangerous thread. I hope it goes well. Good luck.
Years ago, I ran two forums much larger than this one with a much more serious subject matter.
One thing I learned from that experience was that I never want to do that again.
Talk about asking for punishment!
not me. im too unstable.
If you say so…I’m not going to poke with a stick to find out or anything.
I think Charlie is a good fit. He’s not at all interested in our BS, doesn’t meddle, and has his own thing going, which is being helpful to others. He’s good-willed, gives us plenty of leash, but does manage to show up periodically when things get stupid. I have no complaints with how it’s set up now…there’s that one thing, but what can you really do? Whack-a-mole? IDK.
I’m with Roopull…
What is the moderator’s role and do we really need one?
I like to think I can keep my issues under wraps but, if im having a bad day (and if I also have an outlet to do it) I go on power trips. Some here have seen it happen, so, thank you for the vote of confidence but, respectfully, I gotta bow out.
Charlie does a great job. +1
Personally, I still think moderation of this forum is a joke. That has nothing to do with what I think of Charlie as a person. I see function separately from person.
When you appoint a moderator you create the expectation that action will be taken if forum rules are violated. When, several days in a row, the most disgraceful things are said about each other in a discussion and if, after a ban, someone can continue with a different account without intervention, that expectation is not met. Don’t do it or do it right.
As far as I am concerned, a moderator in this form is not necessary at all. You may also wonder whether it is necessary anyway, this forum is so small and only has a handful of residents. Average whatsapp group I’m in has more participants.
