Moderator alteration suggestions:
That all active members participate in moderating the board. Members would act on a Moderator Shift rotation.
Only active members would be asked to moderate. For example, before a member gets into the Moderator Shift Rotation, they must have 100 posts.
The amount of Mods acting on a shift would be an Odd Number of Moderators.
Moderator duties would be to move posts to the proper headings, remove post floods or Spam, merge threads.
Moderators would NOT be permitted to alter the wording in anyones posts aside from editing their own posts.
They would not be permitted to ban.
They would not be issuing warnings, infractions or chastising members in any official capacity.
Abuse of Moderator obligations would be one of the very few ban worthy offenses. This is to balance out those that might see their shift as an opportunity to exact revenge or abuse a member or retaliate.
Members can Opt Out of Mod Duty. However, if there is a shortage of moderators... You may get drafted.
Since everyone takes a turn at moderating, it opens up how aware we are of eachother. It levels the field, no more power tripping.
