I just got better informed by Cont2 regarding our promotion. It's a great step forward and I'm anxious to see the improvement that good moderation can provide. I'm in full agreement on the "Move" and the "Ban" functions. People can always re-subscribe but it doesn't take long to re-establish who they are. I'm also in favor of being able to add a particular firearm. I'd like to see additions to the Shotgun list too. I think this is going to be a good thing! Should we identify ourselves as Moderators? I see that Belt has and I think it's a good idea. Typically when people see that their forum is being monitored they tend to control themselves a bit more than when it isn't. If a decision is made to do that I think something other than the comment section under our names should be established. Anyone can add information to their personal comment section including being a Moderator. I think our position should be added in a way that it is obvious that we're genuine. Does that make sense? I'm just glad that we've made this step forward!

Yeah Tig, I.Ding us would serve as a deterent. I kind of like to think of it as being an under cover moderator. If Activefan does that fine. If not, we can still show them better than we can tell them i.e.: we encounter an idiot who just called someone an unflattering name, on the review pages. We can confront them about it and let them know that their offensive remark will be deleted as will any future offensive remark.

If they talk crap, just delete the comment. He'll know we're for real then and there. He knows he does'nt have the ability to delete others' remarks. If the problem persists, Activefan can step in and do what he can to block, ban or whatever he decides to do...Either way is cool with me...

I have to go along with tig. People see moderator and they are more likly to follow the rules, hence why I put it as my tag but now I dont have to because Activefan is such a great guy.(lol flattery)

I am partial to the ban option, expecially if there is an option to decide how long such as 1 week 2 weeks, 3 weeks and permanent. Assuming someone wants to keep they're screen name they will abide. And it will also keep someone who know's we can only delete from testing our patience. And while I'm on the subject I'll reiderate my opinion on the move function, it sure would be nice... All in due time, we just have to continue to do our best and it'll get noticed. Activefan seems willing to go along with alot of our requests and I'd hate to dissapoint him

I think everything is really moving forward. I'm retired due to a cervical spine injury so I spend my entire day in front of this monitor. So being able to help do something is really good for my mental status!! It was either this or soap opera's, thank God for firearms!! I'm starting a search for all the double and triple posts and deleting them down to the original. It'll save some space on the server too!
