Two or three would be great.

There are no set times or amounts of times required for a mod. As much time as you are willing to give.

Would it be possible to have a trial period before deciding?

I'll vote in favor of LaFlo. She's generally a pretty reasonable personality here. I'll vote against ChrisE, in spite of the fact that I consider his first post in this thread - with all the quotes, humorous. You see, he forgot to include me, and I couldn't forgive that!


I would be open to a discussion of myself modding. I seem to spend a little time each week here anyway. Probably pretty normal mod rules - chill the swearing, no personal attacks, no unlinked attributions of other forum posters, etc. Just like the posting rules say - I'll have to go back and review them. You probably have mgmt tools to check for banned posters signing up under a new moniker. All that stuff.

That Susan can't be bothered to answer valid questions about how much influence new moderators would actually have to change the way the forums are moderated, tells a story in itself.




As a relatively new mod, I can assure you Susan or CN have not in any way tried to influence me or talk to me about how I should moderate. The Rules are out there for anyone to read.

Nonsense. Send me a PM with some of your background and thoughts on the matter, please.
