It seems like there is great support for @bnystrom @Rookie @Marshall @Celia @magooch @CapeFear.
The actual community is great. We have had one active poster that we have had to warn in the past year. So at this point, the moderation is not really focused on the actual community, it is primarily the spammers.
My hope is that if we can snuff spammers out early, then they will seek out other places instead of paddling.com.
At this point, the moderators will be given banning privileges but asked only to ban first-time posters that put up spam.
If there are actual members that need to be banned, Eric or I will handle that.
The actual process of banning a user, deleting their content and logging the IP address takes about 20 seconds. So if you notice spam, we can have it gone right away.
If another user flags something as spam, you can choose how to be notified (notification on the boards and/or email).
So, @bnystrom @Rookie @Marshall @Celia @magooch @CapeFear are you all willing to be moderators?
Have I mentioned the cathartic joy that you get every time you ban a spammer… forever?
