My time on the board might be curtailed some over the coming days due to certain family matters. In case that happens, I assigned two VIPs today (there will be at least one more). VIPs are the neighborhood watch of the board, for lack of a better description. Though they have some small moderator ability (such as the ability to issue warnings or edit/delete inappropriate posts) its a far less formal position. VIPs dont have the ability to ban anyone or do anything administrative such as create new forums, etc. Essentially they keep an eye on the store for me should I be absent for a while. They were chosen for their drama avoidance abilities, their knowledge/experience and/or their board presence. They can handle the small stuff but anything more than editing a post or a verbal rolled-up newspaper tap on the snoot still comes up to me.
A Moderator has far greater ability and authority. I dont feel that we're big enough yet to need full blown moderators but I will be assigning a Moderator position to some unlucky bastard in the near future, however. That person will also have administrative abilities, such as ban management and forum creation, so if I'm ever unavailable there will be someone around that you can turn to.
Remember, VIPs are not mods, but still deserve respect for their willingness to help us keep this place running.
So join me in thanking MBB and BDP for their added contribution to TFF!!
OLD GUYS RULE!
