FORUM MODERATORS
« on: March 07, 2020, 02:53:41 pm »
Hi, Unfortunately these forums don't moderate themselves, so I'm in search of one or more individuals who can take-over some of the work that Mark has been doing these past years. It's not something I have time for at the moment so unless someone out there has time on their hands the forums will probably go Read-Only shortly, at least for a little while. Anyone interested, please get in touch here or via madpenguin at linux.co.uk ...  :)

Hi MP - It would appear that Mods are a bit thin on the ground........! 

I have no experience of forum moderation so don't know if I would be a suitable candidate or not so can you give me a bit of a 'heads-up', please? 

What exactly is involved?  How much time is needed to devote to it?  Would a high-ish level of Linux knowledge be required? Etc, etc.

I'm just a general, fairly moderate level user of Linux, (getting on for 8yrs or so now), and while I'm ok in following methodology (inputting quoted code into terminals, posting results etc) I have no experience of writing that code in the first instance.  Hence my ability to provide solutions would be VERY limited.  I may be able to help with issues from my personal experience and point others to it but that would be about it.  Would that be enough, in the meantime?

As I said in my PM, it would be a great shame if the collective knowledge on here was to be lost through lack of interest, so trying to keep things alive until another 'guru' comes forward would be a good thing, I think.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Rich

I do hope this forum continues! Rich thanks for offering to be a mod. I have no programming experience and so couldn't be a mod unless you guys would need one to just keep the forum running.
My computer: Asus notebook x102B, running on Peppermint 9.

Hello can you tell me please what is involved.  Do you need programming experience??  Don't want to see this forum going down I would like to see it become more active.
