Wow. Thanks for the warm welcome.

Addition:
A lot of you don't know me. I didn't post on NT for a while because of Grad. School. I graduated earlier this year and now I'm back and I think Ican help.

Yes, I post in the JB Forum mostly. The
is accurate because some of thebehavior I've seen in that forum is despicable. I hope that'll change.

KMD is doing fine. He's married these days and is one of my FaceBook friends. Great picks, Meth! West2East was always cool, and I know the second person won't be any less fair.
Thanks, I'm glad you appreciate what West2East brings to our community and I'm glad you have faith that arqangel will make a difference aspart of our staff as well. It's good to hear that KMD's doing so well these days. Have him drop by in December for the 10 year - I'm sure a lotof the regulars would love to see him.

As a mod, are you required to show up (clock in) a certain number of hours?

Are there mods that don't show up for weeks at a time, then appear out the blue to ban or lock something?
It's volunteer work, so we're flexible. There are no formal requirements in terms of hours etc. and, yes, there are moderators on staffwho contribute infrequently these days due to their schedules. Don't assume, though, that if you don't see a staff member posting that they'reinactive. A number of staff members do plenty of "behind the scenes" that users either don't see or are unlikely to pick up on.

mods should be regular members that mingle in every forum..
If we applied that standard, none of our staff members would qualify. Do you know anyone who frequents every single forum of NikeTalk? ALL theregional forums? Price/fake checks?

Let me ask you this: if you were assembling a basketball team, what would you rather have, five players capable of playing every position well or five playerswho are great at one position? It's a TEAM for a reason. We don't need a dozen staff members who frequent the general forum, stay current with thesneaker forums, talk trash in the sports forum, and hang out in the regionals. That would make them more familiar to our users, sure, but it also createsredundancy. We can benefit greatly from specialists.

This announcement was posted in the General forum since this is the most appropriate forum for a welcome post. A lot of you don't get out to the sneakerforums all that often, let alone a forum like sneaker art or the price/fake check forums. It's here that arqangel6 will make the biggest difference, andusers of these forums stand to benefit considerably from his contributions.

Sorry I couldn't accept that mod position Meth.

Maybe next time.
Yeah, it's a shame. I was really hoping you could help out with the 3c and under buy/sell forum. It's a big responsibility, so Iunderstand your decision, but perhaps you'll grow into it.

who are these people u guys keep picking?
Responsible, level-headed people willing to help out for the sake of community rather than the enhancement of their egos. They're often notthe types of users begging for attention or reaching for laughs - and that's exactly the point. What good is a moderator who's terrified of whateveryone thinks of him/her? Is that person going to lock a popular post if it's against the rules? We need people who'll place the community'sbest interests ahead of their own. It's not a popularity contest and people that openly campaign are, more often than not, looking at it as a"promotion" or some sort of status symbol. It's now about how much influence you have - it's about how you use it. Some users make NT abetter place by posting helpful, interesting, and entertaining content and that is a great contribution, but it's not a contribution that requires modaccess. If a ton of people look up to you and you just pile on when others are being insulted, you're not using your influence to help us maintain thetype of safe, friendly, respectful atmosphere we'd like to be known for - and that's the role we ask our staff members to play.

I feel like I'm in the equivalent of the friend zone but for moderatorship... "member zone" if you will. I don't know how to get out of it. Ever since I was rejected in deference to 23ska909red02blue42huthuthike, nothing's been the same.

I kid.... Congrats to the 2 new mods and 1 new admin. Thanks to all the mods and admins for all the work you put in here that I'm glad I don't have to do myself.
Aww, you're the best! I knew you'd understand - you always do.

As long as they contribute more than by trying to flame ppl every thread that pops up, it's fine by me. Some ppl on NT dont have a mind of their own.
This.

I seriously LOL'ed when I read these.


Congrats to both...I saw West2East with the Mod thing under her name in some thread and was thinking "when did they give her a Mod spot? and whydidn't they make a thread?" but I clicked on the first page, looked up and voila
...
