For someone who would forget her head if it wasn't attached, it is.
I visit a lot of forums and I'm just so used to seeing the Moderator under the username that if it's not there, it throws me off.

Anyway, I suppose if it's working why fix something that isn't broke.

Don't forget that we Mods aren't Mods for every forum . If I post under Fire Hydrant and it says Mod under my avatar it's false . I'd not a Mod there.

There is also a list of moderators scattered around the forums...we're not so many that it's hard to remember who we all are.
But if something get's to the point where a moderator MUST say "That'll do!" shouldn't they sign that specific post as "Moderator - Chazhound Help and Info Forum" (just for example)? Just today I saw someone write to take it easy on a guy - I do agree it was warranted, but I had (and still have) no idea whether or not that came from a moderator.... I'll have to go find the thread and check.

Under each Main area it gives the Mods name . Example .... Under Breeding , you'll see me listed as a Mod there . So if I post a " tap on the head " ...you can check back and see it's from me .

I think it's good that we don't have a moderator tag on our posts. We really don't like to publicly reprimand people and if it gets to the point where we need to step in and actively act as a moderator we will do so by pm for the most part. Any other guidance on the forum is in the hopes of steering a conversation in a different direction or settling things down.

We don't need to say "I'm a moderator do it my way..." Most people respond better to a suggestion than a demand and most of our members are smart enough to figure it out. A suggestion doesn't even have to come from us so it really doesn't need to look official. Other members have just as valid opinions and quite often can help steer a conversation onto better ground before a mod even sees it!

Agree Saje ! I'd say that less than 1 % of my posts are a warning . I'm just a member here who happens to moderates 2 forums here . We're here only because Chaz can't be everywhere . And yes , it does mean more time for us , because each of us checks their own areas for any spam or bad conduct .

I am not a mod here... (most of you know I hate rules) but just came back on recently. I, as a member, know/ or knew who the mods were. I think mods. should lead by example, regardless if the word "MODERATOR" shows up or not. Most people are going to say what they want anyway.

I think as a member, you have a pretty good group that keeps things in check. Heck, I am saying this, and I had a time out here, although it was "posted" more than it should have been, but, I still came back.

I believe you have some REALLY great information going on here, and some really fun people. Sorry, I didn't mean to chime in on the "mod" thing, but I had to say, that you DO have some GREAT mods here, and I really enjoy this site.
Amy
