Since it appears nobody is keen to take on the position of moderator, may I propose Victor Meldrew for the position.


I think that would solve the problem of inappropriate postings - there wouldn't be ANY postings

I am a regular visitor to a biker forum, there was a vote a while ago to appoint moderators from the members, and various people were duly taken on as mods.

The problems started pretty soon after one of the mods got into an arguement with another member about ( blah blah), there was a hint of bad feeling between these two from a long time ago, and the mod decided the easy way out was to ban this particular member, subsequently anybody who disagreed, got the same treatment. Threads were locked or deleted on a whim and the mod quite simply abused the power bestowed on them.

I know i have already said that I dont believe that, in an adult world we should have to have moderators, I do however understand the need for them, I just don't think recruitment from the ranks is a good thing.

The site administrator should be the only person with the power to ban anyone and of course should keep a general eye on the moderators behaviour. If a mod feels a member deserves a ban then that mod should forward it to the Administrator together with his/her reasons. In truth it is rarely necessary to ban any member if the mods and admn are doing their jobs properly.

Why bother? They only come back again and nobody does anything.

Which is precisely the point Ralph, the existing moderator is not doing the job so we (that is those of us who have declared an interest earlier in this thread) would like to appoint a few from within the ranks so to speak.

Personally, I don't have a problem with the apparent lack of moderators.
I read what I want to read and help if I can, and skim through the rest.

I can't help smiling though when someone throws a "double six" about being slighted. Leave the forum as it is...warts an all !

What makes you think the existing moderator is not doing his/her job, Admin may be very happy with the way things are, indeed, they may feel that the board is too orderly and move to close the existing forums in favour of one all encompassing forum entitled ‘Motorhome Matters and Anything Else You Want To Talk About’

What you and a few others that think they know best are attempting is a coup.

Maybe the Mod is so fed up of it all he's left us to go off to do something more enjoyable ... can't blame him can you?

Coup ... pigeon or chicken?
