Is there a ribbon

by Dango517 / October 18, 2007 3:23 PM PDT

given to the moderator with the most responses given? Perhaps a little secret waging going on. Ummmmmmmmm. What do you think, maybe $100.00 for the first to reach 100,000.

Current standings

R. Proffitt's 88,025
Marianna Schmudlach 37,108
Roddy32's 29,900

My money is on Proffitt's, at four to one, on back stretch.

for some time and give some great advice.

Marianna & Roddy do a Superb job in the Virus and Security forum, I mean the Spyware, viruses, & security forum.

I think all the Moderators do a great job and Lee should get them something to show his appreciation for the great job they do.

Special thanks to all Moderators for the great job you're doing.


Please remember they are NOT paid, it's all volunteer!

I tried it first an it did work
by PudgyOne / October 21, 2007 2:33 AM PDT

It was an image of one of those little wooden airplanes that uses a rubber band to propel it. It's cost was 3.99 and I wasn't giving the website for the sale. I clicked on the picture and copied image location.

Go figure. Mark will have to picture it in his head.

Yea, that's the picture

In reply to: for one of these

But when I use copy image location it worked. They have blocked it. It works again. Must be one of those websites that was shutdown for repairs.

You mention the "the most responses given",wouldn't the percentage of correct responses as well as the time span factor in.

Why do so many forget about the members contribution.

Some additional comments about your post

You forgot length of post. Too short of a post equals, in many instances, no content. No content means poor quality of posts. Is time span or how long a person has been here important? No, I wouldn't consider this important by its self. If you signed up with Cnet at the dawn of time and never used your account; I wouldn't give you credit for it. So, numbers do matter because that means you've been here literally at this site doing something. Do general members as opposed to moderators help people, sure. Are Moderators more important to this forum then regular members? Yes and no. Moderators impose the policies of the forums and set the tone of the site by keeping disputes to a minimum. Past these two basic functions there just members. I would view them like referees in a sporting event. Everyone knows the rules or should, the "ref" is there to see to it that we apply them and keep unsportsmanlike conduct out of the game. What is a bad moderator? One that uses unsportsmanlike conduct in there duties and fails to keep order for all members despite there personal likes and dislike. Is there seniority on Cnet, believe as you like, I say, no. Why, because we all have individual characters, some good, some bad. I'll judge you by that. Does your age matter? yes and no. For some wisdom comes with age, for others, nope. Are educated and experienced professionals more important then self taught computer users here at the forums? Yes and no.

My intent here was to recognize an important achievement "Bobs work" here on Cnet. I think what he has done is amazing and well worth my respect. Are others worthy of respect, yes. Are you, tomron worthy of respect? Only time will tell.

I would like to say
by PudgyOne / October 21, 2007 2:58 AM PDT

I have been here since September 21, 2004.

I still do NOT know everything. I will answer to the posts that I know the answer. I will try to answer posts for others that no one is attempting, if I can find some information on it. There are times when I can go so far, then someone else needs to hop in and join with the rest of the advice, so I'm far from perfect. How many years I've been a member doesn't mean squat. I also have seen members that only post once in a while. They are members of major companies and their advice is very helpful. One told of a diagnostic tool and I tried to search for it and cannot find it.

As for tomron, I find that his information is very helpful to members. He keeps it short and sweet and sent the other members directly to the website where their problem can be resolved without retyping all the information. This can save time. I would have voted for tomron to be the next President but... he wants another gift certificate, just kidding.

I think you can tell by now, who you'd like to have help you. Sometimes members come up with really good solutions to your problems, many times this was the case for me. Moderators also give great advice. You can also tell which members that you wouldn't want to try and help, by the way they start insulting. The best advice for those members is to, Don't reply and let them hang.

Remember the CNET Forums are volunteer Moderators and Members.

If you can help someone else, it gives you a great feeling inside.

When you need help, others are there to help you.

My old boss(now deceased) gave this advice,

You have to give something, for something in return
