    I know this has been brought up before, but I couldn't find it in a search. Is this still a possibility, or something you would still be interested in?

    It would be nice for several reasons, one of which is when a particular poster is becoming problematic, to post for other mods to keep an eye on them as well.

    I'd like to hear some of the other mods thoughts on this as well, if it stays pretty majorly popular, perhaps we should present this idea to Paul before the big update.

    I'm in.

    Not just to keep track of trolls - it'd be nice to get other mods' opinions if a questionable decision has to be made.

    Great idea. I'll set it up in the new forum. All read/write access will be mods/admin only.

    Any forum name suggestions?

    :)

    I think it would be helpful.

    I really like the idea.

    I say give all mods mod privileges in the mod forum.

    either that or no-mod, It would be rather anti...something, if the mods needed mods :meh:

    either way, I'm all for this idea, Tim, I had posted this in the lounge, fwiw.

    I knew I had seen it somewhere, I did a search and found no results, that would be why.


    I'd say there would be no need for a mod on a mod forum, just leave it to Paul to delete what he didn't think was needed. I think this would be a great idea, I have had some questions in the past on moderating duties, this will be a welcome addition.

    Yay! My PM box is overflowing with this kind of stuff - it'll be good to have a place for keeping track of "issues".

    I will. Imo you need a non-moderator to moderate the moderator only forum.
