    Anybody think another moderator might be good? Perhaps someone to work the night shift :), Don't mind doing it if it will help out :).

    There are basically 3 mods at the minute, don't get me wrong they do a fantastic job but no one on at night times and could possibly lead to someone getting duped :),

    Take care,
    Ben

    I think we might be in competition with each other!!!

    We are usually the only ones still around at 4am;)

    And I agree, another mod could be very useful. I can also do the UK morning shift, 8am - 3pm.

    I'm with Ben on this one.

    Anthony, Pete and Scott (and to a certain degree Mike) are the only mods at the moment.

    BillyA hasn't made a post in three and a bit months (he hasn't even been on since the middle of July!)
    DoubleD_77 hasn't been on for three weeks and hasn't made a post in over a month.

    The forum needs at least one more mod; if not two!

    The forum is growing bigger everyday and I think the forum will struggle to maintain everything (spam etc.) with only 3 and a quarter mods.

    There are several worthy people who would make very good mods. I think Anthony should be trying to appoint somebody in the immediate future.

    Any thoughts Anthony ?

    If you two are usually the only ones around, why would we need a mod? You gonna try and dupe each other?;)

    Personally, at this stage in time, I think everything is under control.

    The reason I asked is there were a lot of spam posts last night, and they were posted around 1am, these were removed in the morning but still means they were up for 7-8 hours, All it takes is for one forum member to get duped by them and lose a lot of money that could have been avoided easily.

    HWH, I am more than happy with this forum, all of the admins and mods do a great job but was simply suggesting that a more of a nightbod would be a good long term thing for this forum :),

    Take care,
    Ben

    There's always going to be times when a moderator is not online, you can appoint a dozen more and it will continue to happen. At least when it does, it's usually during irregular times of the day, when I can only imagine the forums traffic is at its lowest.

    What does help is if you post in the threads and warn members of the dangers and then report the post (which many of you do, already!). That's a great help.

    As I have said, in my opinion, spam is generally being tackled promptly and there is no immediate need for another moderator. That's just my opinion and I'm sure if Anthony feels that's not the case, he will make arrangements.

    Good points Pete, but is it worth the risk for the sake of announcing a new moderator? There wouldn't technically be anymore moderators if you remove one of BillyA or Double_D77, who are barely on here at all now.
