    More moderators

    Hi, I've got a grand total of 2 super moderators at my site The Eerie Network, however just recently, I've been having some problems with a few of my members and the two I've got are not really helping to much (both busy doing other bits, and not really experienced in such matters).

    What I asking here is if anyone would like to pop over and help out for a bit with my site, it's a paranormal related community and can be found at http://bbs.eerie.net/

    Anyone interested? Please let me know.

    Thank you

    Have you asked your current members?

    1) Current members aka promotion from the ranks are your very best source. Consider an announcement via your Admin and ask for "applicants" Be very precise and tactfull on why you need help. You don't wan't to offend your current team.

    2) Watch and review these applicants to see if they measure up to your standards. Thank each and every applicant for the time they have spent in the application procedure.

    3) A great question to ask any applicant is:

    Why do you want to help?

    4) You can learn a lot about the member, yourself , and your Community via the answers to this question.

    5) Don't worry about making a mistake with your choice. We have all done that and it's part of the never ending "learning experience"

    My best wishes

    I agree. I don't think it's a good idea to try to find moderators among random strangers (as far as your site is concerned I mean). Moderators aren't going to do a good job unless they really care about the community.

    Thank you for the advice, this sounds like a good idea, the only problem is the fact that i have a very small member base

    Come over and signup? Are you crazy? Actually, I was thinking about doing that, I did bookmark your site... So, who knows, I may possibly, even though I don't know if I can hang with the likes of the paranoid.... or paranormal even.

    Well, we do have our range of strange people, but most are fairly normal (well, kinda)

    Well, normal is in "paranormal" however, I don't think normal can realistically apply to those ghost thumpers...
