As I understand it, the moderators on this forum do this out of the goodness of their hearts, by that I mean they recieve no money for the hard work they do, (eliminating spam, locking threads, etc.) In light of the recent sale and the fact that the site is pulling in more money from advertising and membership fees, it only seems right that the Mods should be paid!!!!!

I don't want it to be a "job". I don't want to be paid. I enjoy the forum and the people in it. That is enough for me. I enjoy my time here enough to volunteer to do what I do. If it becomes a chore and I start disliking it, I'm done and someone else can do it.

Thanks for the words of encouragement though.

Bob

How many mods are there? It seems as if there's a bunch of green names but I guess I only see about three active ones. So I am guessing the next hurdle would be to figure out if it should be a salaried position or hourly?

This Utopia with no mods that you speak of...
It's not a place that would hypocritically claim to have no mods and ban no one, but that would simply turn off an individual's permissions to all forums on the site if they decided they didn't like the guy, is it?

With NO Mods... No membership fees... and NO sponsors, board membership is based on participation...

If your participation sucks, you're membership expires. Leaves no room for political agenda to be discussed...plain and simple.

Comparing that place to this is like....
Oh hell, there is no comparison. ^rolleyez^
