    Well, thanks everyone!

    I've been looking around at the various new options that have appeared on the forum for me and I can see there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes to keep the forum running smoothly. Like most members here, I'd guess, I thought that everyone just largely plays by the rules and posts things that are sensible, friendly and won't get the forum owners in to trouble. However, I can now see that this is not always the case!! Quite a lot of work, discussion and decision-taking goes on behind closed doors and some big decisions have to be taken in the best interests of the forum. But decisions don't scare me. I recently decided to apply for voluntary redundancy from my day job (again!) and I should hear in a couple of weeks whether or not I've still got a job and regular income. So I'm taking a lot of big decisions right now!!

    Funny that. I can honestly say me being a moderator here has never crossed my mind before. When I got a PM asking if I'd be interested it was a big surprise. But I've been here quite a while and the chance to get more involved was just one that shouldn't be missed. So here I am!

    I've looked at threads and new posts and they all seem to be abiding by the rules and posting in the right place. I know Musicology mentioned on his "face vs meets" poll that it wasn't meant to a multiple-choice but he hadn't changed the poll title before he posted it (even though it most certainly was a multiple choice poll!). I'd thought of changing his poll text to take out the multiple choice bit but this wouldn't have made sense then - even though his post about it not being multiple choice, when it was, didn't make sense!! So I decided to leave it!

    I've noticed the "mod" module at the bottom never seems to have any threads, posts or attachments awaiting moderation. Everyone must be being really good at the moment (unless other mods have gotten their first - which I feel is probably most likely! ).

    Good... glad you're checking the 'moderated posts' bit: I think that's the one that we're all guilty of being a bit sporadic about. Admittedly, there's not much in there at the moment as I think the people we dumped in the Sin Bin and given up posting, and we changed new members to only have their first post placed in moderation, rather than their first 10 posts, so that cut it down a lot.

    Don't forget also that 'For Sale' threads need to me moved to the 'Sold' forum when members tell us the item is sold. When we do that, we tend to add '[SOLD]' to the thread title and also leave a re-direct for a few hours so that people know that it's bveen moved.
