Default Moderators

I have seen some are confused as to who and who is not a moderator. If you are having problems on a certain forum, or you just wanna tell us what a great job we are doing , scroll all the way down to the bottom of the forum you are on. Look on the bottom righthand side and you will see who all moderates that particular forum. Just thought this would help, because I have had people ask who is a mod.

That was a good idea to post this. I think this should be made into a sticky.

It's still confusing to me as to why moderators don't say "MODERATOR POST" on those posts where they are acting like a moderator and not just a general member. It doesn't make sense that we should have to figure out if they're just voicing their opinion or if they're acting as a moderator.

This is the only forum I've been on in 9 years online that doesn't require their moderators to identify their posts as a moderator post when they are acting in that capacity. I can't blame anyone for ignoring a post if it's not marked as "official".

I know this is kinda old, but is there a reason why moderators can't have the word 'moderator' under or next to their username or in their signature or perhaps the name could be a different colour....something?
It would make things much easier for members. Particularly members who may need help on the forum but aren't very 'forum savvy', if you know what I mean?

It isn't easy to identify a mod to encourage the member to work out things themselves instead of running to a Mod for everything. It seems to work out just fine

We also have a special Help Forum just for anybody who needs help too

I've always wondered why they don't have Moderator under the username as well. Seems it would be an easy thing to do and avoid a lot of confusion. When you're in heat of a debate or discussion it's often hard to remmber who's a mod and who's not. At least for me it is. I'm sure I've probably snarked at a few mods without even realizing it.

If it were more obvious who the mods were...

I have to agree this is the only forum I've been to that seems to want to keep their mods a secret. LOL

Most of us don't want people to walk around on eggshells when we're around, it takes all the fun out. Many people seem to find it easy enough to tell which posts are Mod posts and which posts are just us joining in.

So generally, if you see a post like "This had better stop right now and get back to the point at hand" or "Lay off the new kid"...chances are it's from us and should be heeded.

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.
