Some changes on this forum. Please read guys!

Hi everybody. I just thought I'd drop a line concerning some changes here on this forum I think you should know about.

Earlier in the week, I was contacted by AF and offered a position as mod on the Eclipse/Talon/Laser forum. I accepted the offer.

My nomination as mod was not based upon any previous moderating experience, and no, I don't know everything there is to know about DSMs. That out the way, there are many on here who could have done just as good a job of being mod, or even better, than I plan on doing. So any "is-he-better-than-me-?" bitterness should be unwarranted. I joined here as a complete newbie, and for all practical pusposes, still am a newbie, learning something new every day. Socrates said, "the greatest knowledge is for you to know that you know nothing." Dwell on that a little.

My primary duties, like any other mod, will be to keep things clean and tidy on here, helping out Josh. And to do that, the last thing I want to use as a main tool is the "close thread" button. Newbies will post whore all over the place without ever understanding why the sub-forums were created, and I would greatly appreciate if older members of this forum could kindly guide them to do the right thing. It's a community effort to make everything go smoothly.

For starters, lets start posting in the right sub-forum. I do realize that there are some posts that cannot be shoved into any of the 3 subforums, and sometimes, can go into more than one sub-forum. That's your call untill we figure out what more sub-forums are needed, but basic stuff like "my belt squeels, help" etc, we all know where to put that. The main forum should be a hang-out/semi-OT place. I'll discuss this with Josh, and try to move as many threads as I can ino the appropriate places...if I can get away from Quake 4 on the XBox 360 for a second .

Alrighty then. Any question, PM me! Thanks.

Shpyder

Re: Some changes on this forum. Please read guys!

I just wanna throw my two cents out since this thread is out here... We do need to help out the mods more often. Shpyder is right guys, we all know where we are supposed to post and we all have ignored it at some point in time. I know I have done it too. But in doing that, new members are going off of our lead and posting in the wrong area. Lets help the mods out by directing new members better, instead of flaming them, and posting in the right areas. I'm sure if we all help out a little bit Shpyder won't have to use those special little buttons that he doesn't wanna use. lol

Anyways, congrats again Shpyder! I'm sure you'll do great!
