New moderator!

Recommended Posts

OK folks, I've enlisted my services to chad & wayne to help out with moderation. They are busy-ass dudes and I think this forum needs some moderators to straighten some things out so hopefully I'll do a good job.

I'll be working on a forum rules thread to sticky at the top of the forum -- to keep people reminded of the rules... just to give you guys an idea of what I'm going to be looking out for:

#1 -- flamewars/shit posts. Being an asshole is unnecessary. Obviously disagreement is fine but if you're going to endlessly flame someone, do it via PM or don't do it at all. Offending posts will be deleted.

#2 -- please try to use the search function as much as possible. There's a LOT of information on this site and if you have a question, chances are it's been asked before.

#3 -- I'm also going to try to move stuff around to proper forums. chad & wayne will be creating a "supermarket" forum soon, so everyone (and myself) will have a place to post for sale threads.

I think chad & wayne are looking for a few other moderators, so if you have the time/energy/maturity to do so get in touch with them.

And just to point out: I'm now a moderator of the site but all opinions I express are my own (obviously) and have nothing to do with and are not representative of superfuture or its creators or anything of that sort.

Cheers folks.

Great, time for ST to improve. Minya, I feel you would be a great choice, your posts always has that right balance.

oh also -- one more thing to add -- PLEASE DON'T LEECH IMAGES.

If you want to put an image in your post, upload it to Imageshack or Photobucket or your own hosting and then link it from there. Please do not link it from the original hoster's site. This sucks up a lot of their bandwidth. Everyone who reads your post will be downloading the picture, which means a lot of unexpected bandwidth use for the people hosting that pic. This is kind of a pain, I know, but I'm pretty sure it's already gotten Alife pissed off at superfuture (see the Alife Ritefoot thread from a few weeks ago) so it's just a good idea to have it on your own or free hosting.

Thanks.

Yay minya will make a great mod to SF. Now all the shit threads can be locked out. I suggest you sticky the ancient APC and selvedge threads so people won't post redundant threads.

I just hope this forum doesn't become nazi ruled like Honest forum is...flame wars are fun sometimes.

Interesting idea, what do the rest of you think?

It would make for a nice resource, in everyone's face, but I wonder if it'd actually be read.... or if it'd just end up as unused clutter.

Minya, good luck. You seem like you know what's good for this place. About that Idea, frankly it sucks. Those threads are too long and no one wants to weed through 20 pages to get a question answered. I never ever read those threads just because of the sheer length of them.

Excellent point. You're right, a new-and-revised FAQ would be a better idea. I'll start working on that shortly.

Are you going to crack down on people quoting a whole bunch of inline images and then adding one or two lines of text?

I think you should, although most people probably won't. Best of luck!

as some of you may have noticed, i have been made a new moderator for supertalk.

now that i have the power my first action will be to delete the whole WAYWT thread icon_smile_big.gif

all joking aside i think that minya, has been doing a great job, and the forum has got alot cleaner, so i thought i would give him, chad, and wayne a hand.

i have one thing to add to minya's list above

#1 if someone posts a question that has been answered lots of times, and you feel inclined to bump it, please at least post a link to the right thread, since you are good at using the search function. this way when others look at least there is something useful.
