    Lightbulb Moderators

    This forum is growing every day more and more and also the need for quality moderators...
    Being moderator is privilege on any forum, and this forum isn't exception.
    You can apply here for moderator status, but before you do you need to fulfill certain criteria from below.
    Then based on your past activity on this board I will decide if you qualify for moderator status or not and will contact you personally if needed.
    I will also choose some members who didn't applied for moderator status and contact them personally if I see that they meet moderator criteria.

    MODERATOR CRITERIA YOU MUST MEET BEFORE YOU APPLY:
    - must be a member here for a while (minimum 3 months)
    - must be an active member on this board
    - must have bigger number of quality posts/threads (more than 500)
    - must be trusted member with good reputation
    - must know all forum rules and beyond
    - must act like a moderator by reporting posts and threads violating forum rules
    - must recognize any illegal activity and member who are trying to trick the forum rules in some way
    - must use common sense in decision making, concerning forum rules and beyond
    - must be highly moral person (have good sense of judgment between right and wrong)


    Members chosen to be moderators will be on "test period" for few weeks or even few months,
    so please don't apply here if you know that you are not up to this job.


    One more thing concerning all IMTalk.org members.
    You are all moderators in some way and please don't be afraid to act like one ,
    by reporting questionable posts/threads and members, so this form remains spammer free and enjoyable.
    And BTW this way you are also improving your chances for mod status here.

    Sounds very good and Im very interessting to this.

    The Forum is growing so fast... more than 30 daily new Users here.

    I can remember my first day here... cause I was one of the first members here...
    and IMT had only 50 members... and there was only 10 post here...

    Now we have unbelieable good results of members and daily new registered members...


    I think you really need some person who help you to check all post daily for people who breaking rules or something like that.

    As an moderator I will also rename wrong written titles of post...

    Sometimes I also find post titles like "need help" or "free download" without any good explaining in the title..

    As an moderator I will read this post and try to edit the title to an title with more meaning to IMT members...

    Is the Title named to "need help" and this person write about "hey I need help to fix this problem. My site is in google sandbox"

    then I will rename it to "Google Sandbox Problem - I need your help"..

    There are a lot of IMT Members who create tooo short titles without any good meaning to the readers.

    moderating forum topics as you wish is not a good idea, and thats not happening in forums !!!! moderators should edit only unsuitable content and topics what are against forum rules and conditions. Editing topics and posts as they wish, (only because the mod thinks it is not LOOKING GOOD) is not the way.

    I think you're write. Thats the right of each member of the forum whatever to write except against forum rules. But crappy titles and crap posts must be edited which harms the SEO of forum.

    True. Mods should then try draw a longer post out of the member. It's all well and good to point a finger at someone that link dropped, or tried to link in their signature etc. or even advertised. Just warning them, or outright banning them can give a forum a nasty reputation and it won't grow. Mods need to be more like mentors, not just policing the forum, but also interacting and try to get members to post quality posts instead of "crappy" one liners and spam. A forum needs to be a fun place to relax, with mods that are helpful and fun, and are impartial, in other words, they aren't just there to police and catch spammers. That, apart from having useful information, is one of the factors that makes a forum popular. Where people respect moderators and administrators, and not fear them.

    I'd love to be a moderator, but I think my post count works against me for now. (not over 200 yet).

    I have few in my mind...

    Once accepted moderator will be on test period first.
    Also moderators who are not active and who are not doing moderation(except special circumstances) for their categories/forums will lose their moderator status here.

    Its a good idea. I've seen a few moderators go A.W.O.L from a few forums, and it puts a lot of strain on the rest of the team and administrators, and can lead to problems in the forum.

    I must say that I have an german Gamble Forums with over 4000 members.
    Its hard to let the forums growing fast cause not much german people interessting to this topic.

    About editing Titles.
    I always warned members who creating unmeaning titles like "I need help" or "hey you have to read this"

    I always warn them for these kind titles but you cant warn every member everytime. Cause new members are coming everyday and so you must warn everytime new members...

    So I stopped warning them and always optimizing the titles for better understanding to my members.

    "I need help"

    - I check the topic/ content
    - then I rename it to "I need help with Windows 7"

    I always try to be helpful here in forum
    and maybe I can help the admin and his work by maintain this forum
    cause this forums is growing fast and the admin will loose the control about all threads and topics in forums.

    I also think I have the most "thanks" clicks here (^^)


    The most problem for me is that my english is not perfect... but I'll try my best
