I just wanted to really thank Dana for putting this site together.  I can see he put a lot of effort into organizing the topics and posts.

Thanks Karma.

 

I really do not have a lot of spare time to organize this but feel that the VO community needs a moderated space in which technical discussions can take place without the interruptions that trolls and flamers present in the existing VO forums.

 

I AM looking for individuals interested in being part of a moderation team. I have moderated groups on my own and as part of a team and the moderation steam is definitely a better option IMO. It prevents a single individual from imposing their opinion on everyone (which stifles discussion) and allows for moderators to take time off without the moderation duties going untended to.

 

If anyone is interested in being part of such a moderation team please just let me know.

i also would like to thank dana.

after a very bad troll attack, and the moderator sideing with the troll in another forum, i suggested to dana that another forum should be started for only tech discussions. glad to see he found a way to do it.

the other forum is now controlled by the troll .

Thank you xfrank.

Kind and encouraging words indeed.

 

But lets not bee too hard on the moderator in that other forum. Moderating is very difficult and having been one for several years I do not envy any moderator with the restrictions the one I think you are referring to has.  Also...I would not be too quick to judge if trolls "rule" any forum just yet. I have the feeling that this will not be the outcome at the end of the (metaphorical) day.

 

It is much harder to be critical of moderators once you have walked a (metaphorical) mile in their (metaphorical)  shoes.   If you care to give it a try there are openings available on the moderation team for this forum.

 

Thanks again.

Thanks Dana! I suspect this will be a huge improvement.
