I thought there could be only one.

Or was that something to do with swords and scotsmen?

There can only be one.

But the fact there are others tells me the game is still in motion and the true awakening has not taken place yet. ?:;):

As long as Epicomms exists, I have no need for any other forums.... :;): :D

Pixelgeek I believe is the Epic mod so far registered but I think the plan is for all the rules committee to be mods.

Actually, I think Jervis wants to keep too many people from doing double duty.

In addition to the simple problem of turning a hobby into a chore and/or burning people out, there is an issue if someone seen as an "insider" with respect to game development also has to be the bad guy when it comes to locking posts, banning people, and so on.  Hard feelings against a person can easily become general badmouthing of the game if they are perceived as being too closely linked.

Ain't people grand?

=========

For the record, my brief perusal of the new forum has so far made a single term pop into my head - Train Wreck.

Well gentlemen, with the old SG Forum dead, I have come and joined you over here.

Now if only I could register on the new SG forum as well I will be happy.

There are not any game specific moderators (if that was what you meant?) and once the new moderators get logged in and settled in I imagine that there will be a lot more people doing moderation duties

Frankly I'd rather not be moderating but it seems as if its about the only way to be able to edit and maintain the FAQ since that topic needs to be locked.

Indeed, I don't envy you that job, being a Mod for very eager game fans can't be the funnist job around!

Many times I have seen the poor Moderators take heat for calling someone on their bad behavior. I think it is hard enough when it is your job. But when you are a volunteer who is doing it just because they love the subject matter?  :l

It could lead to a case of burn out so bad you might lose interest in playing. That would be a shame.  :(

Especially at the moment. There are quite a few people POed at the changes.

One of the biggest problems is the overlap between moderators and posters/champions/developers.

I think that moderators really ought to not have a larger role in the proceedings of the Forum in which they are posting. Its difficult to be objective and it just causes too much acrimony in the long term.

"Official" forums also cause a problem since there is an inherent conflict, IMO, between the traditional messageboard behaviour of people (chatting, topic hijacking, flaming, getting POed at each other) and the desire by a company to make sure that their messagebaords don't get them sued or make the casual gamer think that their fans are all neurotic.

Hi Zac,

I feel for you.

I volunteered to help out, but my volunteer post must have been forgotten.

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.
