Having been involved with trying to improve the situation in this forum, with numerous users complaining of problems, I have discussed the way forward with some members.
I think going forward, the best thing to do is to do a poll of the forum members to see
a) if you want another forum moderator to come from the forum membership to deal with minor issues and to flag up to the admins any larger issues
b) keep things as it is
If you DO want a forum moderator, you can use this thread to nominate some names to be considered and we can organise a vote for that, if you do decide you want a moderator.
So, please vote on the initial poll and discuss possible moderator candidates below
If you have any Qs about what being a moderator would involve, drop me a PM and I can clarify, but basically you'd have the ability to clean up threads where needed, sticky and unsticky them, and delete problem posts. Any wider action needed would be flagged up to the admins, but you'd be able to post in the moderator forum to let us know about these.
