As many of you have likely noticed, we have been hit by spammers recently. Our team responds as soon as we can but sometimes (like the weekends) we are not able to remove flagged posts as quickly as possible.
We would like to add 2-3 moderators to the message boards to help counteract this problem and hopefully get the spammers to go find something else to do with their lives.
To ensure that moderators are selected by the group, here is the process:
If you think one of your fellow paddlers would make a good moderator (active on the message boards, fair, non-inflammatory), then reply to this post and mention their handle with the @ - example: @brian
In order to be eligible, that user will need at least three nominations. Once they receive three nominations, I will private message them and ask if they are willing to become a moderator.
A moderator will then have the ability to delete any piece of content and may be able to ban users. The great news is that 99.9% of the actual users here are great so there is not much in the way of insults or fighting.
Thanks so much,
