slightly concerning this for me...

although andy has been great with me (we argue, then settle that I'm right ;) ) - he's only been around since October, and this all seems a little odd.

Knowing andy (only via here), he will agree its a bit unusual!

As I say, absolutely nothing personal against andy, but I wish we had some sort of info about how this came about?

5 months or so is quite a long time on this forum - and he's contributed plenty of posts in that time - so its not really that odd... :thumbsup:

Did you expect HUKD to ask your permission? Put it to a vote perhaps??

You can get a good measure of someone by their posting style, and I would say it was a good 'choice'....

never saw this advertised, what exactly is one? do they have mod status without the pay

I've got no problems with Aw being a "forum helper" - what I find slightly irritating is the way things like this are "sneaked out".......it would be nice to know these things are going to happen rather than stumble across them.

TBH I don't think there are enough mods on here and if "forum helpers" are going to cut down on threadspoiling, swearing and trolling (and maybe a more stricter Feedback forum) then they are very welcome. I'd still be interested in hearing how admin/mods see the role of "forum helper".....

Forum Mod - would be better but then people would confuse them with Mod Mods! and they can't call them board moderators....
#24
Were you not all at the board meeting? we sat and discussed what changes were to be made to HUKD, and if everyone agreed they would be ok...

Then, as I use ebay, I went to their board meeting to discuss the new people they were employing in their new marketing office in tokyo. I didn't like one of them, so, as a member of ebay I told them they couldn't employ that person...

sad, beyond the joke really, giving power to those that do nothing but abuse it and are obviously in the pockets of the real mod team.


There should be more MEMBER HELPERS as sassie has mentioned, not people that will get users an infraction or suspension for the slightest thing which could be easily resoved by a nudge in the right direction.

Instead, these people seem to get suspended when all it would have taken is a kind word from a kind member to tell them to edit their post, or read the rules and rewrite their post or they will face possible action. Yes everyone should read the rules before going ahead with posting something, the banner at the top states that.

I just think as a community this forum and the people on it should make others aware of what is expected to save on infractions and suspensions that could easilly be avoided. You may argue that dishing out suspensions and infractions for first time offences will make the member know not to do it again, but come on, this is a community of people here. This site seems to regimented at times.

Just stumbled onto this thread.....
aren't a great deal of us, forum helpers?
does this mean, when folks ask for help those who aren't forum helpers, can't help?
in what way will they help? posting of images say when folks can't do it? that's the kinda time when anyone and often they do, help.
seems an odd title but i am sure all will come out in the wash and traditionally sunday is wash day :-D

Hi All

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has left messages of thanks/support for me. It is much appreciated.

And to answer a few questions.

Yes, there are two "forum helpers". Ascotishbloke and myself. I will be helping the mods with deals and ascottishbloke will be helping with Trades.

We are not full moderators, and are here to assist ,as HUKD is getting busier every week. We were both asked by the team if we had the time to spare (in my case) in assisting with unexpiring, offering advice etc on deals. I understand that I was asked because I already try to assist the mods in this.

Bazzaric was at the board meeting, and might be able to assist you with any more info. (Joke BTW)

Anyway. I'd better go. I haven't posted a single DVD or CD yet today. And if I don't the world might end. LOL.

Thanks again for the positive messages

Regards Andy

PS Owlass.......when did I tell you to sod off? And shouldn't you still be out celebrating?
banned#31
ascottishbloke is one too, now i am shocked, but good luck to you both
#32
Some good quotes from another thread:

aScottishBloke
I just take the approach that there's a helluva lot of work required to moderate this place. I try to do my bit to assist in reports and raising points for clarity as and when required. :thumbsup:


guv
If I see something that might get a report made, I PM the person to tell them they might get a modabee make a report and suggest they edit their post. Done it twice today as it happens - and got thanked for it. I'd much prefer that approach than have someone rubbing their hands because they've managed to get someone suspended. What approach is more helpful in what's supposed to be a forum community?


aScottishBloke
Guv,

Your intentions are honourable, but all posts in FS/FT have warnings prior to submission. Surely the OP should read thoroughly in the 1st instance or face the consequences should they decide to ignore. Most face a temp suspension at worst, so they have time to get it right next time.

Thanks for clarifying AW - good luck to you and Scottishbloke.

It seems a bit unfair to citicise the choice before they have really started in their new roles , can I suggest you give them a chance.....

That was me. We try to keep the Feedback Forum threads on topic regarding the HUKD Site & they are often referenced back to & we try to scan through the various new threads for off topic posts. Your post was referring to something else entirely ;-) :oops: Thanks.

All Hail the new "forum helpers", tbh, one of them at least puts in hard work and effort, (i don't know the other too well) without needing to, good for them , I imagine they've been asked to help, which whether you like it or not, means they're generally good guys.

Certain modabees on here may feel a little smarted, but I guess it comes down to the consistency of help, and their general forum manner, to simply state "reported" etc in a thread doesn't really help anyone who may be new to the site, it only confuses, deters and annoys people, "noobies" and "long-termers".

I help people on here, but generally I post a lot of nonsense too,- I'd like my title to be Captain Post Count Boost, Solar Flare is way too common!!!!!!!

Feedback appreciated,thanks



Thanks starsparkle

I shall see if it's in my new abilities to ammend your status to Captain Post Count Boost :w00t:
