Libervis needs moderators!

I think that more than anough time has passed on libervis.com without any other moderators but myself here. Whether it was or wasn't a very good strategy to wait that long before really looking for creating a team here, this is the point in time when i am absolutely positive that the site really needs moderators in order to have a sustained growth.

Therefore, any member of this site that believes he could be an active moderator for one or more of libervis forums is invited to consider applying for a position. All positions are available, for all 15 forums.

Eventually, this site would need up to about 20 people to keep it going, most being a forum mods and some taking care of other site sections such as articles, wiki, blogs and the rest.

If you are not an active member, or member at all, you are invited to prove that you'll be active by starting posting and contributing, building some good reputation, than you'll most likely be a nomenee for a moderator.

Thank you very much!
Danijel Orsolic

Re: Libervis needs moderators!

How often does a moderator need to check in on the forums. On average, how much time is required?

I am not available to be a moderator on a daily or an ongong basis. I may, however, be willing to share in moderator duties in some way.

Re: Libervis needs moderators!

I pop into the areas I moderate daily, but then again I have no life. At the current volume level I would think every couple days or perhaps up to every three days would be sufficient in most areas, but I don't choose moderators so I'm just talking about what I see and feel.

Re: Libervis needs moderators!

Basically, one hour daily should be enough to check on new posts, reply, maybe create some new ones and check if everything is in it's place (no rules broken). However, popping in only few times weekly is ok as well, especially if the site isn't THAT popular yet. If we'd have a few thoudand registered members with dousens if not hundreds of new posts the requirements would pose itself as somewhat bigger, but then again, in that case we would have alot more of willing moderators.

Besides that, moderators are known to be very well respected and often acting as the "leaders" of a community. They are therefore choosen according to the nature and quality of their previous posts and their attitude.

James looked as good choice (and still does) and i am thankful he accepted the position. ;-)

thank you
Daniel

I'm glad to know our currently differing views on Free Software as the "right" thing hasn't changed your mind. Laughing

Hehe.. why would it.. disagreement in some views is one thing and your ability to moderate a forum as well as good relationship is another. :-)

Thanks
Dan

Re: Libervis needs moderators!

I cannot promise to be always available, or always have time to start new topics, but I'll be happy to help.
The following forums have my interest:
The Movement Discussions
Free Software Support -> Free Operating Systems
Technology -> Technobabble

Re: Libervis needs moderators!

Hey all.
Although I wouldn't like to ask for modship any time soon, I though, that I might put forth a suggestion, which includes the topic of moderators.

I've noticed you don't have a particular forum for Graphic Tutorials. I am a GIMP user, and have done some tutorials on other phpbb boards.

Don't take me seriously if you think this is absurd, but wouldn't it be nice if we could have a sub-forum in the software area for GIMP HOW-TOs and tutorials. I am no pro, but I have managed to make some sleezy things using GIMP. And I am willing to look after that yet non-existant sub-forum. :yes:

Cheers.

Shouldn't the Wiki part of Libervis be the best place for these GIMP thingies?

I am also using GIMP for my graphics and looking forward to GIMP on Libervis :-) .

I believe that images are not allowed as part of your signature here :-) .

Libervis.com forum rules can be found here: http://www.libervis.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=29&forum=29

Re: Libervis needs moderators!

Welcome aboard moku!

That's a good suggestion because i actually had a similar idea before, but cut it because i want the number of forums as low as possible until the number of posts exceeds certain level. There should be about hundred of threads in every forum to look active and more attractive to new members.

However, while wiki could serve a purpose for this as stojic says, maybe an art forum wouldn't hurt Smiling It can be a place to discuss and share art/graphics made in not only GIMP, but other design apps such as inkscape for one example.

It would be put under "free software support" forum. What do you think?
As for wiki, you can put some information (usage help, user creating docs on GIMP) about creating designs with free software as well as post some interesting images there.

If many people would like it, we can open up an image gallery for your designs.

Libervis is a community *center* for free software people and in our case it's not bad to cover so many areas that we'd even host artists here. We want this to be a home or at least a crossroad for every human being outhere that thinks good of FOSS and uses it.

Thank you for your suggestions
Daniel

Re: Libervis needs moderators!

Forgot to mention your signature image. As stojic said, the rules are that you shouldn't have images in your signatures so i have to ask you to remove it..

Actually, i like that pic in your sig, but if i allow you then i would have to allow everybody. Allowing images in sigs wouldn't be too much of a problem if it wasn't for some people that may join just to put their image advertisings in the sig. Also, forums without too many images load faster.

Thank you for understanding.
Daniel
