No, itís just people volunteering is better than people being volunteered. Itís good to know what they think and how they feel about it.

Uh oh… In the past few days, an unforeseen event threw some unexpected changes my way. I may not have enough wiggle room to take care of my existing responsibilities, plus moderating SB, plus dealing with recent new stuff.

Now there is just too much stuff that I need to take care of, so be fair to this board, I better withdraw my moderator application. As of this writing, there is so much on my plate that I don’t think I would be able to spend the time and attention that the good people of this board deserve.

I want to thank those of you who vouched for me as your moderator. I’m not leaving, though! I'm staying on here until the SHTF and all of our devices have melted into lumps of plastic, lol.

>>hat tip to y’all<<

I trust that the new moderator will be named publicly here. I know moderators police the board, however I don't know specifically what moderators do, but are the duties delegated? Example: If I have issue "A" do I need to go through a specific moderator to solve my problem with issue "A"?

Can you give me a 'behind the scenes' explanations as to what the moderators do? I have a long standing problem, but don't want to be a pain in the @$$ to get it resolved. If I know what happens back stage maybe I can get a better idea as to how to solve it.

Moderators have a little tag below their name that says moderator (staff have staff) and you can contact us through pm's or post a thread in https://www.survivalistboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=53

All threads started in that section are only visible to the person starting the thread and the mods/staff/admins

If you or anyone see's a post or thread you feel violates a rule just click the red and white triangle at the top right corner of every post. It will send an email to every mod and we will deal with it as soon as we can.

You can view a list of all the admins, mods and staff here... (skip the first section called moderators, those are the approved merchants and they only have access to their specific section where they advertise, the forum moderators are listed as super moderators) https://www.survivalistboards.com/showgroups.php


also... just type curse words out like they are spelled and let the word filter do it's job.

I'll throw my hat into the ring, if you still need moderators.

- I have never put anyone on "ignore," because, even when I disagree with someone's opinion, I believe they should always be given the benefit of the doubt that their next contribution might be worthwhile.

- I have no nemeses. In fact, I try to objectively give credit where it's due, thanking posts that deserve it by people with whom I have disagreed in other threads.

- For someone who has been a member here for a decade and made tens of thousands of posts, I have very few infractions.

- I like to imagine that my posts contribute to maintaining the expected decorum on this site.

If you still need moderators, and you believe I have the correct temperament, I am available.

Itís an ongoing process, we look at post history, infractions, etc of each person and Kev contacts them to see if they really want it. So far just one has made the cut but itís not because the others arenít still in the running, itís because some of us are old and slow....

I have to confess that I have considered tossing my hat in the ring here. I've had some experience with the job before but it's been several years ago. Though it can be stressful when things get controversial, I enjoyed being a part of it.
I have not offered here for a couple of reasons that I feel disqualify me. First, I almost never use my laptop or any machine other than my phone anymore. I access the forum through Tapatalk and so would not be able to access Mod functions without changing my M.O.. Second, I am concerned about whether I could detach myself enough from some topics that get me spun up occasionally. Thirdly, there are times when I need to focus my attention on business, though less and less as time goes on. None probably insurmountable but they are what has kept me away from offering to help out.
If you are considering but are on the fence for your own reasons, think some more and maybe offer yourself. You are probably more qualified than you think you are.
It is a thankless job, for sure, but in it's own way can be rewarding. It's pretty cool to be part of something like this at this level.

Thanks, Aceoky!

I'm tickled to be in a better position than I was a few weeks ago to be useful to anyone (outside of work, lol).

I know they selected a mod, but might as well add another. Can't hurt.
