I feel that stuff like changing the culture or direction of a sub-forum and all that might be a bit more complicated than just locking topics,etc...


It's not necessarily about changing the quality and culture, it's about being responsible for maintaining it. By doing that, you'll naturally influence it towards how you feel it should be.

For example, you would tolerate different things to (say) Thomas. You might tolerate short posts and swearing, whilst he might insist on good grammar and long posts.

I don't mean to sound like you'll be making up rules, but it's just tidying up your part of the forum (in your own way), and encouraging/starting the right sort of discussions.


You'll notice how the more experienced staff are able to stop arguments without having to close the topic and suspend the users. Imagine that principle applied to encouraging positive things as well.

If you judge they need to be removed, then yes remove them. If you judge they need to be sorted into one topic, then you should arrange for that to be done (whether or not you do it yourself). But of course the staff are still here as always.

hmm maybe I could take on this role for the Computer+Tech or the Vehicles subforum.

More likely the computer+tech, the vehicles one is rarely posted in.

I'm interested in the role Gerard, preferably in the General discussion sections. Hope you consider me for the role :).

Cheers :)

You need to be able to be active. There's no point being a Boss if you're not around to do anything. However, that doesn't mean being on for 5 hours every day, but if you're only going be on for a couple of days a month, this role probably isn't for you .

If you think you're capable of doing it, then let us know. If not, no bad feelings.

That's four days a week, and you're probably able to do a lot on a weekend. So that's fine.

Like I said, it doesn't have to be all-day every-day, you just have to be around enough to manage your forum and keep an eye on what's going on there. Sure, when you first start you'll need to spend a while sorting it out, but if you keep up that'll only need to be done once.

Okay selection time :)

The following members have been selected to become Forum Bosses. This means they are responsible for maintaining and directing their selected forum. These appointments can be revoked at any time, and these bosses may also be assigned to different forums at some point. Bosses do not 'outrank' other members, they're just in charge of their section; and staff still outrank them.

GTA IV Gameplay Discussion & Ballad of Gay Tony - Noru
GTA VC Discussion - Thomas
General Gaming - Mpilk901
Graphics & Writers' Pad - TM
Vehicles - WRX22B1998

More bosses will be assigned in the future, but this is our first group. Congratulations.

Just a suggestion, can you change their color?

Because it reminds me of a mod, but a forum boss(as you described it), is not a mod.

Might as well change it to aqua blue.

But there are no longer any mods so the colour might as well be ideal. I like the colour but I'm not sure if others feel the same.

Section Moderators don't exist anymore. This is the replacement, which is why they took over the colour.

They are similar to section moderators (in that they have mod abilities in a small number of subforums), however their focus is on quality of content, rather than just the forum rules.
