I think dino should become a mod. He seems to be here alot of the time, is helpful and seems to be clued up on things.
Even if cannot be a full mod maybe he could have some special title/role which would let new (and old) members come to him for specialist advice. He seems to know alot about ebay and is always posting about scams.

What do other members/staff think?

No offence to him, but in my opinion no!

lol any particular reason?

I don't think he would like it, I don't think the mods would like it!

He is far too blunt for that role in my opinion. Plus the mods keep deleting posts willy-nilly and he doesn't like it - you can tell. So why would he want to join in?

Admin

I don't think he'd want to be a mod, regardless of what we think

Same here hes got eyes like a hawk, but is quick to judge, but good for scam busting

he is a good guy and good help....but i dont think he should because he doesnt agree with certain aspects of the way this site is run, so it would be a bad idea....no offence to him, cos he is a very good guy

Nah dino doesn't want to be a mod..he'd have to calm down and that's not his style..we like him as he is ..to the point and alert to any malpractice in the For Sale forum ...but I do know someone who would love mod status ..albeit at an early age and with rocker credentials (a motorbike fan) ..yes the infamous young kid ont block IOM RF....RF = right fart.....only joking mate..yer a good un!! LOL

I can say due to not been on this site that long but he can be a bit blunt and hes always on the ball

TBH I think steve would rather wash his nads in chilli sauce than become a mod lol

Yes, I can judge people too quickly and I've had to apologise on a couple of occasions.

I have been told to calm down a bit and to stop being so blunt, are these pills working, LOL.

Sounds like fun. Hehehe


To be honest it could not happen, no matter how I felt about becoming a Mod, I've had too many disagreements with people that run HUKD to be even considered for a Mod. Apart from that, the Mods do a good job, they don't need someone else disrupting their routine.
Also, I have more 'freedom' as a 'normal' member.
Thanks anyway. :-D :-D

I find it very sad to see peoples talents go to waste and especially when this appears to be caused by a clash of personalities.

Paul obviously has a very good and successful site here and all credit to him.
Steve is extremely good at spotting scams and potential scams.

Given the ongoing problems on the FS/FT board it would surely be in all honest folks interests to have someone like Steve as an mod or overseer on that board at least.

Will it happen............probably not ! I get the feeling too much muddy water has passed under the bridge and stubborness is the order of the day.

I'm sure both of these people are intelligent enough to know their own strengths and weaknesses, it's a shame they can't compromise on each others to create and even better community.

A real shame...........................................................

nope nope nope.... everyone would end up having a barny best off leaving the old fossil to grumble away and be Mr Blunt.. leave the bland stuff to the mods

As I said, if not a mod maybe a member with a special title or role?

ie - Scambuster - Ebay expert....

It's my fault.
If I don't agree with something or I see something dodgy I want to do something about it. My way isn't always the right way.
I have been brought up to say what you mean and mean what you say, I suppose a bit of tact would help but........
I did a good job as a TGWU Official many years ago :-D

MMM considering people ask for help/sympathy on here, its ends up in a flaming contest and cyber punch up ( see the mobile point thread for example now locked), again its bound to end up in a bun fight and be counter productive.. perhaps an anger or flaming forum where your free to go to rant at each other or a sympathy/begging/I am feeling sorry for myself today forum :x

You alright DC or you got the grump on?

Many people ask for help and helpful advice is given out.

Many people feel strongly about breaking the law, There wasn't much help that could be given out and yes, Things were repeated far to much. (To the extent that people were saying silly things.)

No need for any of the nasty comments on there, I don't agree with Duckys last comment and then locking it. Was his view as a Member or Moderator?
He should have just locked it without any comments.

yes and there is the answer.. the poster wanted to know if they had a STaT Defence , well No, offence is complete, but people views of mobile /phone/ranting/ flaming how does that help well its didnt and asDino ( the fossil ) pointed out the thread should have just been locked with no comment Mods should stay impartial but Mod stuff ....

So help forum ..NO

posting and stopping the flaming in post ..YES

I think that might be an overreaction, the comment was only really a summary and the thread did need locking - it descended rapidly from advice into morality and prejudice. You're right it probably wasn't wise to leave a comment but I think it was just to create 'closure'.

On the top in hand though - the site needs strong characters like Dino, and more importantly it needs the not to be mods. The mods here do a great job but HUKD wouldn't be what it is without the normal members...

I told you Dino was qualified to be a mod/have a special role...:-D

dinosaursunlimited.co.uk/emp…php

A Dinosaur is an experienced professional who will have either been made … A Dinosaur is an experienced professional who will have either been made redundant or taken early retirement. In many cases they realise that they will never have the same position they once had, or enjoy the same remuneration, but they really want to get back into the work place. Companies that employ a Dinosaur get someone who may be over qualified but are highly affordable.

To be honest, my comment at the end of that thread was a summary of a) what people said and b) the facts.

Just needed some closure or else all of the conspiracies would have started up, etc.
