Mods and Admin steer the way a forum is run and to a degree the tone and make up of it's members.

This is not "The Mix" or whatever, this is the The Wolf.

If folk don't like it, there are alternatives. Over the years we have lost for a variety of reasons a vocal "yute" on the board. The need for this to be addressed is obvious to keep the thing going.

Radical revolution may attract back a crowd of spotty frogs who join in during the good years and disappear when times are hard, but if that's the board you want, sit back get, your tin hat on and enjoy. I and a great number of other folk who "contribute" (you don't have to like what I write, but I contribute), would/will leave you to it

My two bobs worth would simply be that Mods who obviously are missing in action for a length of time should be politely asked if they wish to continue and if they continue to be elsewhere, politely asked to step down. The "yute" should be encouraged and sympathetically moderated in their formative months of membership. There's always more than one way to skin a cat.........init.

1. Shouldn't Moderators be voted for each year, that is, start afresh, and vote for the ones who put themselves forward, with a given manifesto/agenda?


I don't think every year is necessary, the current mod team has been together for a long time and repeated changes would disrupt things too much (IMO). The vote was brought in after a suggestion put forward after Lee asked for input, so I don't know what the plans are, but I'm sure if enough want a vote then Lee may consider it.

The trouble is that if we are bringing in new mods every so often then others will need replacing or else everyone will be a mod! This puts Lee in a difficult position if no one decides to step down as he would have to relieve someone of their duties, a decision I don't think he'd be willing to do. One way to do it could be every year or so to see if a mod wants to step down, if not we carry on, if so, one is selected/voted for.

It will be interesting to see the views on this, I got the impression that the mod vote idea was supported by a small majority and has created more hassle than necessary.


From the original Gang Of Six, who do you think would be prepared to step down, as they are not very active on the Forum? I think the vote has polarised opinion a bit, and I can't recall if Lee publicly asked for opinions on what members would actually like to see done, or rather, there wasn't an agreed 'to do' list, but either way, it's will be interesting to see whether the newbies can bring anything new and positive to the running of the Forum.


Genuine question Embers not a dig but what new and positive things did you have in mind?I mean if you had got in what would you have done?
This is like the Embers campaign after the result :lol:

This thread should be quickly retired so we can get back to the normal slagging rather than this whole process which I'm sure was done with the best of intentions but has been misinterpreted by some.

Bin it and let's press on
