I just had to add my opinion in this. In the time I have been here there have been people that have always stood out and those people really should be at least asked to be the ones making a difference here. Penguin obviously doesnt care about how these boards are run or else that would have put more thought into who should be a mod. So what if Matt has been a mod before doesnt mean he knows what people like cowboy magicmandan and beman have done here. I think that we are in a bigger mess than we were without all these mods.

Just a thought on my part here....but since people don't think Penguins choices are all that great, maybe from now on Penguin should let the users vote in the new Mods.

Thats a good idea because at least it would be people that the forum users find acceptable as mods.

Thank you. I hope I can live up to that for you!!! As far as the other new mods, I think Matt_Foster will be a good mod. I know he was a mod for another site, and even though he is new to penguin, he is not new to being a mod.

I feel none of the new mods should have mod powers, except for Matt Foster and Wiggy. The others haven't had any moderator experience before. I don't know much about elimin8er so I can't say anything about him.

EDITED

Now that we have decided that he has no business helping to run a forum, let us look at the content of the forum itself.

This is a business. A magic business. If we have little kids running the forum which IS in fact a product that penguin sells, in a sense, Penguin's aura of professionalism is lessened greatly. This applies to all mods, who I feel should use correct grammar and punctuation, capitalization etc.

EDITED

Sorry for being blunt but the fate of these forums lies in haveing good moderators.


I edited out everything that could be seen as initiative for starting a flame war.
This needs to be read.

all right, i understand everyone's complaints but let the mods do the jobs and time will tell if it was a good choice or not.

untill then lets not put their morale down, on less then the first day. besides complaining over here about things they havnt even done is not going to do a thing.

thank you

I talked to Maxwell a couple of days ago, he said he would hook me up with mod powers. I only locked the Revolution thread because it was going to lead to exposure. There were so many questions on it, angles, how easy, etc.. I know it would lead to exposure. If one of the other mods thinks it is fine to have it unlocked, then I will unlock it, but I think it will lead to exposure.

Matt


I will try my best to help the boards out. The Revolution topic is unlocked, but try not to ask so many questions about it, it will lead to exposure.

If you have any questions or comments feel free to pm me.

Thanks,
Matt



I find this interesting Matt that you were the only person, after I posted that I found Revolution randomly on the web, to PM me asking where it was so that you could learn it. Talk about exposure? I don't think that you're cut out to be a moderator. Just my opinion. What do you other guys think?

I think cowboy is a little combative to be a mod. :lol: (I know, I am too, but you don't see me trying to be mod)

Bshack if you mean your stepping down because of the good of the boards, then you're an allright guy.
