Welcome to Current, our new Queue moderator

Post by Ellimist » Wed Jan 12, 2011 2:20 am

Since first days of AFF, a lot of things have changed. For the first month there was just a small trickle of posts each day. But then once people found out about us, AFF started to get a lot busier. And then it became apparent that a lot of members were coming to the site just for the ebooks and nothing else. Of course, their intentions can change, and capnnerefir is a great example of that.

But it was disappointing having so many members but so few posts. So the staffies had a discussion and the "5 posts to download the ebooks" rule was born. However once that happened, all we got was spam. So once again the staffies discussed it and it was decided that each of the first five posts had to be approved by a moderator.

This went great, for a while. But then AFF began to expand even more and with so many new posts to approve, and edit, a new group of staffies were created. The Junior Moderators. Their role is to view the new posts and edit them if need be.

But now AFF is starting to grow more rapidly then ever before and we are now getting 25+ "under 5" posts each day. And every moderator needs a break, plus there are timezones to consider. So once again we discussed it and the idea for Queue Moderators was born. Another team whose role was to approve or disapprove posts.

Now one week later it has been implemented and our first ever Queue Moderator has been selected, based upon his contribution and dedication to the forum.

Welcome to the team, Current! It will be a great pleasure serving with you.

Thanks, Ellimist, and everyone else in the staff.

All I can say is, I'll do my best to keep things flowing smoothly, and I promise not to go mad with power.
What is not the answer to this question?

Actually, madness is the key.

Welcome to the team Current :)
You all have guns
And you never put the safety on
And you all have plans,
To take it



Don't Take It

Why is that in sarcasm color? We're all nuts.

Besides, if Current decides to go mad with power, they'll have to work hard to catch up with my own insanity. ;)

Congrats, Current.
