A macfixit (or close) has been very helpful. I'm not a Mac owner, but have to help out getting all the animals to work in the network.
Regrettably, I note very different grades of activity between the moderators. I just checked two of them I hardly knew:
- Dan Vlas, moderator of the MS Office forum: 31 posts, last visit november 16, 2004; last post april 14, 2005 [which, by the way, leads to the question how you can post without visiting]
- Jeff Marchi, moderator of the Windows 95/98, Me & PC Hardware forums: last visit may 25, 2005; last posts april 18, 2005 and march 20, 2005, all in Windows XP forum
Moderators are 'truly dedicated' and 'volunteer their personal time and share their considerable knowledge and experience with all of our members'. We all know examples of some moderators posting nearly every day (no need to mention names), which I find most admirable indeed.
It's a honorary title, of course, but I just wonder if there is any procedure (something like a periodic evaluation) to ascertain that moderators keep deserving that honor.
And I know for sure there are some non-moderator members whose time, knowledge and experience I truly appreciate also (again, I won't mention names).
