Hi all

Once again we're putting out a call for new moderators for the two busiest forums on the site.

If you are interested in helping out on the site, please PM scoobs (http://www.menstennisforums.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=14123) with details of why you want to be a moderator and what you think you can bring to the role. Site members from all geographical areas are welcome to apply and you do not need to be a native English speaker, although a good grasp of English is a requirement.

Applications will close on February 17th and the moderators will vote on the candidates at that time.

Many thanks

scoobs

Sorry Slasher and Punky this is not an election. You apply for the position like you apply for a job.

Is it paid? Or is it merely voluntary work?

Now that would be a nice reward and a competitive salary at the same time.

Thanks :)

Mod team changes

It's taken a while longer than I would have liked, but I'm pleased to announce that the mod team have selected

AdeyC
Marto
erickmartins
EnriqueIG8

as new moderators for NT and GM. Congratulations to them, and I'd like to thank the other applicants who were unsuccessful for their interest. They will be joining Sonja1989, NYCtennisfan and Action Jackson in moderating these forums.

The new moderators will be coming on stream in the next couple of days.

Additionally, Andreas will be made a supermod so that he can assist with issues arising in all forums.

Also, Snowwy and RagingLamb will be made admins alongside myself, Carlita and SloKid.

Finally, I will be leaving the mod team in the next couple of weeks, likely after Miami, and I'm sure the site will be in good hands.

Thanks,

scoobs

Congrats to all :D Thank you scoobs for all your hard work over the years! TT scored big here in the new selections and while I'm happy about the promotions of the people I confess as a TT player I'm a little concerned about what is going to happen with TT now?

Nothing to worry about there as far as I am concerned - when I was fortunate to get the TT Board vacancy I said then that I would still continue to Manage as I had done before as that was what got me known in the forum in the first place, I won't ever forget that and still will be carrying on doing so.

Didn't expect that :).
I'll give my best



That goes for me as well :)

Scoobs, you won't leave the forum permanently will you?

I hope Martin can combine working and studying with moderating a forum as well :eek: Good luck, man!

Sorry about my manners - I was so surprised at getting this that I actually forgot to also congratulate Marto, erickmartins and EnriqueIG8 - an honour for me to be picked along with these three great guys.

EnriqueIG8
03-03-2013, 07:44 PM
Thanks Adrian! Congrats to you, erickmartins and Martin too of course. If you are going to moderate this forum like you manage your TT's, I'm not worried :)

Do you have any joint decision-making power then? I have no idea about the work of an admin.

Well, you have seen/read what it means to be a moderator on a forum like MTF during the last years ;)

I can only admire you and all other moderators for your thick skin which is surely needed for the job you do.

Somewhat unorthodox choice, since they don't participate much in GM, but good luck, hope it works out :)

They will get to read enough c**p now from GM and a certain degree from NT anyway.

Beside this being a moderator on this forum shouldn't be a popularity contest or something like that ;)

Good luck to the new moderators for their job.

Finally a quality post from you. I guess better late than never ;)

Anyway, congrats to all the new Mods. They were all great choices, specially AdeyC and the great Javi. Good luck to all of them, as they all need it. Must not be a easy task to moderate this forum with some wild people.

Like Mae said, good to see TT in full force here :worship: I can only think as a good thing. TT people being recognized can only be great for TT comunity.

Congrats to all.

If I wasn't too busy I would've applied. Not sure if I'd do a good job tho. too many posters are pissing me off lately. I'd probably ban them all :lol:. kidding guys, really good luck and try to keep the board clean.

don't let people insult one another, don't let people bash players. let's all be civil :)

It's a shame I am so close to a perma-ban as I think certain people need to be told exactly how they are behaving.

Sorry you've been messed around Javi.

Might be worth mentioning that as the mods/admins sit themselves high up on their pedestals looking down at us mere mortals, Javi was the one person capable of bridging the gap between the two.

You have made a bad mistake - which is hardly surprising.

Pathetic, ridiculous decision. I'd love the person/people who took it to show/accuse themselves, although I'd assume they're too embarrassed to do it - and understandably so.

One thing is for sure: being a mod or not, Javi will always have far more respect from MTF posters than the illuminated minds responsible for this decision.

It's not the moderators/admins fault, and I haven't said that anywhere but when you know what happened I think I deserved a warning/heads up or some concrete rules on how to act with these kind of circumstances.


When someone gets de-modded after 2 months they gonna ask why, and I explained what happened. Not twisting the truth or anything. It's not like I said; Hey everyone this stuff is sooo unfair, let's revolt!

I don't think it matters any more who the moderators are. The plan seems to have been to turn MTF into a game where some members vie to see who can most deviously suck the moderators into banning other members.
It has succeeded brilliantly.
Maybe after the banning of Feldman, the moderators feel they have to show that banning is applied to all equally, so they end up banning anybody that has a finger pointed at them.
It is starting to remind me of Mao's China, where everyone was in competition to see who could denounce whom first.

and I am reminded of East German Stasi, where nobody knew who was a spy.
