Forum Moderators

Not sure if this is the right place or not but here goes. I have been a Helper-Mod at the forums for a few months now, and lately it seems I'm the only moderator at all. I have contacted Quiglesigles who suggested I speak to Magnus. I have also sent an e-mail to Daveh with no reply yet to this subject. Magnus replied that I should try getting the attention of the wiki admins or pop into the IRC channel to make myself more known. The use of the wiki editting process and IRC is not really my cup of tea. I have been a member of the Forums since November 2006 and it seems to me that traffic has picked up(for the better). I started my own thread in the general forums to see what the forum community thought about me becoming a Full Moderator. Though there wasn't a huge response to it I belive that that is mostly due to users sticking to the forums that are more pertinent to their personal tastes. Both Quiglesigles and Magnus have said that it would be OK with them but as Magnus suggested I should bring the conversation to the wiki admins. What I am asking is; to become Full Moderator and possible get a few helpers or a couple full moderators that will be active on a daily basis so as to help the forum community as a whole.

For better or for worse, the wiki-editing community and the forum community don't overlap too much here, so the wiki admins don't really play a role in who becomes a forum moderator. About the only useful thing I can say is that Bear was really helpful about pointing out a problem with a blank page a while back. Based on that he'd get my vote :) But it's ultimately up to Daveh to make the call and implement any changes. For that, you may just need to wait until the next window of opportunity when Daveh is in between trips and has a chance to check what's been going on. Next time I notice him in IRC, I'll point this out to him.
Also, I gather that Obliv4PS3/Most Honored Listener would like to become a helper-mod. So if I get a chance, I'll pass that on to Daveh, too. --NepheleTalk 22:11, 25 June 2007 (EDT)
The forums are still running??? --Wrye 22:50, 25 June 2007 (EDT)

Much appreciated, Nephele! Yes Wrye, the forums are still runnning, lol! Actually, I think it is running quite well. We have a good core group that have been active for awhile and newcomers most every day. Activity has really picked up compared to when I first became a member, there can be up to a couple of pages of threads and 100 or more posts in a day. A bit much for one active person (with limited controls) to keep a good eye on. That is the reason for my request. I understand about being busy so taking the path that I have and following the suggestions of Quiglesigles and Magnus seemed the right course. Bear forum Helper-Mod 20:59, 26 June 2007 (EDT)

I just received a request from codex to become a moderator. He has been an outstanding member on the forums even longer than I have. With him, Most Honored, and myself moderating on a daily basis things should be OK for the moment. It would be nice if there was an admin who was a bit more readily available, as well. Like I said before I understand that Daveh is busy, but with the excess traffic lately the forums need help. June 2007 has seen the most users online record broken twice, and that with Quiglesigles, Magnus, and Vook inactive. Thanks Again Bear 17:22, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

Thanks for the update. I haven't forgotten about the request, it's just that Daveh seems to still be on travel. And at this point, when he does get back there are going to be quite a few things on his todo list.... --NepheleTalk 18:25, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

thanks again! I'm sure Dave has plenty to do. :) Bear 19:44, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

OK, I just talked to Daveh and I see that you (Bear) and codex are now listed as moderators, and Most Honored Listener is a helper-mod. I hope that helps! --NepheleTalk 20:06, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

That should help a lot! Thanks for your help!! Bear 22:17, 29 June 2007 (EDT)
