    There has been a lot of spam and outrageous posts lately, and the moderators have been too busy to moderate. So, at the request of (In)Sanity, I'm opening this thread for moderator nominations.



    Nominate who you think will be the best moderator, and who meets the following criteria set by (In)Sanity:

    Tolerance for people that may have views and opinions that you disagree with.

    Patience
    And I must add another criterion: the person must be on often enough to detect spam.

    You may nominate two people, and you may nominate yourself.
    Oh, and you may not nominate anyone if you've been a member for less than a week.

    may i return the compliment (if that's what it is) and nominate scientstphilosophertheist ?

    i must however emphasize that there's more to being a moderator than dealing with spam (+ a comprehensive definition that is available for all members to read would be welcome) : there's also flaming, baiting, flooding every thread so they all become the same in content, being a terminal bore - to what extent are they allowed + where do you draw the line ?

    From the other thread
    I would suggest if we are lacking moderation that someone start a post that nominates moderators and let's vote on them.
    Is there a limit to the number of new moderators or will it just be an up/down vote on each nominee?

    I personally think that the position should only be a temporary one as i think MB does a fantastic job of it, and i would hate to see him lose his position simply because of our impatience. I will vote for Ophiolite, and if he doest want the position... my second choice would be marnixR.

    -------------

    Perhaps after a few days or so we should start a second thread with a proper vote, all the people that have been nominated and have not said no should be on a list, you know, like they do in a proper democracy like on TV.

    i definitely don't think new moderators should be created at the expense of existing ones

    I agree.

    How about closing nominations on the thirteenth (that's seven days from now)?

    I don't understand why we may not nominate more than one person. There isn't any limit to the number of moderators we may have. And if someone is appointed, this doesn't mean Megabrain is out of a job. Again, we can have many moderators.

    In this case, I have to break this rule and I'm going to nominate more than one. (Sorry)

    I would like to see Ophiolite as a moderator again. He did a fantastic job before.

    And I've always thought MitchellMckain would be a good moderator.

    I personally am not sure if I want the job, mostly because there are some forums that I hardly touch, and sometimes I think I spend too much time here anyway... but I suppose I could keep an eye on some of the forums. I wouldn't search out spam and such specifically, but when I did encounter it, I would delete it....

    Ok...you can nominate more than one person. I made that rule so that each person would nominate whom they think is the BEST person; but,,,whatever.
    I also think Mitch M would make a good moderator...just that lately he hasn't been on often.

    This is true but we are looking for someone who is here often, it may complicate things in the future if there are two (or more) full time moderators here constantly. Pendragon is still here occasionally.

    I'm happy with the closing date being the thirteenth if everybody else is, i'm just looking forward to see whether people start voting eurovision song contest style.

    i assume there's no reason why you couldn't have moderators who specialise in certain areas (e.g. if they have a certain expertise in the subject matter) but still with forum-wide powers should the need arise

    and now that we can propose more than 1 moderator, i'd like to second the proposal for ophiolite

    Okay...
    Thinking about this a bit more, here is what I personally would (and would not) do if I were made a moderator (note: there would definitely be a need for others... you'll understand after you read below...):


    I am here almost all days during the week. Not here on weekends.
    I usually peruse astronomy, mathematics, physics, general discussion, and to a lesser extent, pseudoscience, education, and to a much much lesser extent, religion. So that is where I'd spend most of my efforts.

    I would delete spam and, for the habitual spammer, recommend banishment.

    I would warn persons who post repeated threads and delete the copies.

    I would kindly comment in the threads regarding 'homework' requests.

    Recently, I've witnessed many topics by one user in particular which were almost all identical. I would PM them a request to not do that and go from there.

    I would not involve myself in petty arguments unless I was informed of someone blatantly breaking the rules. I believe we are all mature enough to handle differences in opinions and the occasional rude behavior ourselves.

    I would not strictly adhere to the rules as far as the occasional double posters.

    I would not become obsessive about persons which display poor grammar and an overall bad writing style.

    I would not be one who enforces the rules to a 't' but instead just use good judgement to the best of my abilities.

    I would not edit others posts (e.g., remove offensive (e.g., racist) language, etc.), but warn them instead. If the warning doesn't suffice, then I would request banishment or take other action such as deleting further posts of such nature by that person.

    I would not edit others posts for off-topic chat. I probably wouldn't edit another's post unless under the most extreme condition.

    I would not troll specifically for rule breakers, but when I do observe 'bad' behavior, I would take action to the best of my judgement.

    Relating to the previous point, since I would only detect bad behavior in the forums I most frequent, there would be a need for other moderators. I don't want to be the sole mod.

    And I most definitely would not abuse my status as a moderator if I personally take offense to someone.


    Once Megabrain is back (or any another active moderator), you probably wouldn't see much action from me except for posting my usual 2-cents/day, as most violations would probably be taken care of by the more active mod.




    I believe the style of how I would moderate as mentioned above shouldn't infringe upon any other moderator's style. I would be more of a type to take action when the situation clearly dictates such. I would pretty much be a pretty 'laid-back' mod. There should be no controversy. Therefore, more moderators besides me shouldn't complicate things as Cat1981 suggested.

    If that description sounds reasonable, and doesn't sound too intrusive, then I'd be willing to give it a try. If not, then no hard feelings.

    But I want to stress that I would only be observing the behavior in the forums I most frequent. Therefore, more moderators would be required. This is why people like MitchellMckain would be perfect for moderating other sections such as religion, and MacGyver1968 would be perfect for computer science, etc.

    Cheers

    Well thats good enough for me, i would like to vote for a third person :-D and nominate William. For all this to work though we will need the people who have been nominated and/or mentioned to tell SPT if they would like to be included in the final vote before the thirteenth.

    i wonder whether this calls for a 2nd tier of moderators, the current bunch being the senior moderators, the new ones junior moderators with fewer powers ?

    personally, i would feel rather uneasy about banning someone or even deleting posts without discussing it with other moderators first (unless it's clearly commercial spam)

    I believe that only administrators can ban someone... that's why I stated "request banishment." And this only for clear violators like that "shooperwhooper" character....

    As for the second tier suggestion, that pretty much is what a moderator is... a second tier administrator.

    you're right about banning people - i checked the forum rules and this is what it says :

    "8. BAN

    8(a) Repeated or extreme offenses are rewarded with a permanent or temporary ban. Bans are only issued by administrators, and if you feel that you have been mistreated, contact the Administrator through email."


    so i assume that's 1 cross the new moderator(s) won't have to bear

    i'll put a vote on william and ophiolite did a fine job of it so if he wants to i'll vote for him.

    i'm also curious as to whether it might be a good idea to sticky this thread to other parts of the forum, i don't think a large number of people check site feedback unless they have a problem.

    Ophi was an administrator until he asked to be made a regular member again. I think he rather enjoyed posting more than keeping up with the forum goings-on.

    Although, he was an excellent administrator while he reigned!

    I vote for marnixR, I think he's very fit for the job.
    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, however, there is.

    well I would except for the fact I now find I like 'playing news reporter'

    so unless I report the news for here, then I'll be bored. Is anything of newsworthiness going on here?

    Some kid in the general discussion section is asking advice on how to get an older woman in bed....

    How about that?

    Well there's this weird kid, sderenzi, who recently joined, has been posting stuff on females and the nature of rape, and making countless numbers of polls. Oh, and he requested your reply to his post in the introduction section.

    Sderenzi is bonkers but he writes well.

    Well actaully he's possibly not bonkers, he's just lacking the usual restrictions that one places on thoughts and how they translate into actual dialogue.

    In other words the rest of us know what NOT to say, he just says it. But I think you chaps can relate to what he says. Perhaps it makes you feel uncomfortable (as it does women) seeing it in print, but you guys enjoy a good rape fantasy. Fantasy being the operative word. I enjoy a good 10 in the bed fantasy but I have no desire to actually take it beyond that!

    Not really but you get my point :wink: (not really as in I don't think about ten in the bed)

    Anyway re Sci news, the reality is I am a new writer and I need various demo's of my written style as well as experience at writing. The News thing is me dabbling with a new medium. I wanted a rant blog for a while but had nothing particular to rant about and then along came Leo/Plazma and Avatar and the rest is history although now they are all old news.

    I have other blogs which are very different again

    such as 'www.aliensguidetohumanity.blogspot.com' this blog is just nuts about an alien visiting the uk and making very random observations. Barely got it started though.

    Then there is girltalk-ladiesonly, I enjoy that one, and a more serious one. They are all linked.

    Anyway, I need to go mooch on sciforums now see if anything beyond discussing 'I had sex' is going on there. You never know someone might be talking about something science related!!!! Now THAT would be news!

    what myspace page? I had a few of those too, but now just got the one.

    Are you a stalker or my number 1 fan?

    meanwhile, I was thinking more along the lines of 11.

    This guy is in my Blogs hall of fame. I don't reply to his 'flirty/offensive/whatever' only stuff that warrants a reply.

    The page "theoryofrelativity." You had it in your signature a while ago... before you got into a fight with jeremyhfht and left us.

    Not a stalker or fan (per se), just someone with a good memory. Although... you are attractive if I recall (perhaps my memory isn't all that good). ...Attractive enough that I'd bet you'd have no problem finding eleven and a half for the sack.

    oops yes, back on track!!!

    I vote the fish bloke, MarnixR

    didn't vote for Ophio, as he is more fun as a poster and I think he doesn't want the job anyway.

    William seems like a friendly fello and I don't know the rest.

    tbh i think ToR voted (my tally went up by one) but i'm not sure whether the poll system in this forum allows you to change your mind - i don't mind either way, i'm not that desperate to be a mod

    [fishmonger - still makes me chuckle]
