    Number of Moderators


    Hey everyone I have a couple of questions.

    1) Is there a post or a link somewhere to find out who all the current moderators are?

    2) The reason I ask is because it seems, maybe its just me, that techiemoe is the only moderator who's around all the time. Maybe I'm mistaken but he seems to be the only one who I see on a consistent basis. It also seems lately that there have been a ton of repeat post, inappropriate posts, double posts, etc... And lord only knows that techiemoe does enough around here and he can't be an all knowing super god of the forums who sees all of these things and can correct them. I'm also aware that there is a procedure for reporting "bad" posts but this does not seem to be used all that often. So I was wondering what the regular users of this forum think and of course the mods, trusted penguins, and admins think too. I guess I'm basically suggesting that maybe we need one or two more mods to patrol the forums especially given the number of users that now come here on a daily basis. We have an incredible amount of traffic here and it may just require a little more manpower.

    Let me know what you think and if I'm way off basis about the number of active mods patrolling the forums I apologize to any mod that has graciously contributed their time to keeping these forums in spectacular shape. So please don't take offense it just seems maybe more are needed.

    One last thing: maybe a solution would be giving trusted penguins the ability to have some of the mod power like closing threads.

    An example of what I'm talking about can be found with this little illustration:

    topic 1 topic 2 and topic 3 I'm not trying to place a specific fault on this user but this sort of exemplifies some of the posting that has been occurring somewhat frequently.

    Hmm. I hadn't noticed this, but you might have a point. I'm working with Core Wizard to promote some active mods.

    I have exactly the same impression.

    The forum has grown a lot recently, but the number of (visible) moderators has somehow followed an inverse trend.

    Then again, a lot of other things did change for the best.
