New moderator for the forum!

I'm very pleased to announced that Garry is now a moderator on the forum. He's injected some new life into the forum and has experience moderating forums before and I asked him if he'd like more tools to help others on the forum and he has gladly accepted, for which I'm very grateful

Ian

Re: New moderator for the forum!

Only too pleased to be able to help you.

I don't think there is a lot that needs to be done in the forum. It pretty well runs it's self.

Mainly helping with stickies and un-stickying. etc

Thanks Ron.
Just here to help, in any way I can.

As far as revival goes. You are helping that with your very popular Image of the day thread.

Re: New moderator for the forum!

Congratulations on getting the job. Can I ask if there is a way to send out news letters to members. There are many that have not loged in for quite some time. A news letter to let them know we are still here and making a comeback may just get their attention.

Re: New moderator for the forum!

I haven't seen any way of doing this, Ron.

I am able to help, in doing Stickies and un-sticking threads.
Help by moving threads to the correct location.
Helping with editing etc

Ian may be the person to answer this for you.

Yes, this can be done. We have done one for a while (I tended to err on the side of caution because I know newsletters can be annoying). Leave it with me and I'll get one sent in a day or two.

Re: New moderator for the forum!

It was just a suggestion as I do this on my forum and it dose sometimes get old members to look in. I agree it can be annoying when you get them two or three times a week. ViewBug do that. I think one every three months is good practice. I also send out greetings card for birthdays etc. Makes members feel they are valued by the forum.

You will routinely get an email on your registered birthday from the forum.
