Mark, we'd love to have you get involved with this topic as well as the others you've been watching over!
Just to let you guys know, I've been thinking through the moderator role in the forum and plan to reset things for the 2003 season. Many people have asked me "what does it mean to be a moderator?". I found it difficult to answer.
As soon as things settle down I will get my thoughts together and know in no uncertain terms what a moderator is, and at that time I will ask for volunteers for all sections according to that definition.
In the meantime, Dble Haul, striblue - thanks for looking over the several boards for which you both already are moderators.
Until then, if anyone would like to enlighten me with suggesioins for the 3-5 key things that define what a moderator should be in the future of the forum (anybody) this would be a good thread to suggest them while the topic is under review.
I think the role should be more involved - have more responsibility, but also should have rewards that make it very worthwhile to take the task.
