This is just an idea which struck into my mind.How about multiple bosses. If a boss gets inactive or is away for some reason the other one can look after that forum. That's a pretty good idea I think, but it all still lies on you staff and other members. So ?

Bosses are not there to moderate or approve posts - they don't need to be there all the time.

They are there to make decisions on the sort of thing that goes on in that forum. They don't need to be there 24/7 to enforce that. Think of them as "tweaking" the forum and nudging it in the right direction, rather than having to write the content themselves or approve everyone else's posts.

We've coped alright without bosses for the past few years, so if one goes away for a week or so, it won't be a problem. If a boss leaves the forum or becomes inactive, then we may seek to replace them, but there's no rush.

Also, two people won't have exactly the same ideas. Too many cooks spoil the broth. If it was just moderating, then sure the more the better. But since they are making personal judgements and decisions (rather than just enforcing the rules), we can't have two at a time.

I'd like to have gaming, if it ever becomes available.
Second choice would be the Computer and Tech forum, but there's pretty little activity there.. Mainly just me and a handfew of some other people..
To think of it, Serious Chat and The Lounge are pretty awesome too.


I guess I'd have to be a bit less cocky though..

Gerrard, may I become the forum boss of the Fun and off Topic section? I know I won't do anything stupid. I can maybe turn thing down when stuff gets out of hand? By the way I'm active here 24/7. That was 3 month ago though. That was when there was something I had to be to. Anyway I'm active all the time and I'm extremely interested in this.

I'm active all the time too and I can be good when called upon... :)

Plus I'm obviously interested the most in the Computer+Tech Forum.

Also, you guys know that I always use very fluent English, and I promise that I would up the positive activity in the Computer+Tech Sub-forum.

Some things I would amp up:



1) I would include a well organized introduction topic (pinned), in which I'd make sure it's clear that the section is not just for posting your PC Problems, but anything related to Technology or Recent Science.

2) I would create a pinned topic that I would post in with my daily Tech News/Updates.

3) I would be online everyday and encourage positive discussion.

4) I would unpin the 'Big Ass Firefox' Topic.

5) I also promise that I would not create any topics with my own Computer Problems or Questions anymore, either.

6) I'd probably pin the Windows 7 topic.

Firstly, Ray...no amount of formatting will make any of the staff consider you in any different light than they are already. A bit of orange and comic sans does nothing over simply having the right person for the job. And neither does multiple posting when you decide you have something else to add. If anything, your initial offer should be eloquent enough to cover this.

It's also not about promising to right old ways. If you ever need help, and can't find it elsewhere, people are happy to help you... don't make so much of a sacrifice out of it.


From the first time you post in this thread, we've already seen hundreds of your posts, we know how you behave, act and react and what positions, if any, will suit you well.

May have seemed a bit direct, but this applies to everyone, really.

I think Gerard wants to see how the new forum boss system is working at the moment before deciding to appoint new bosses.

Nothing to see here, move along

Capable of answering for ourselves thanks. :)

Hiring of Bosses is ongoing, it's just not something we can do immediately with no consideration.

We'll tell you if we do want you to be a boss. If you don't hear from us, it's probably that we currently don't need a Boss for your specialis areas, or we think you're not suitable right now for the position. Raybob, you fit into the latter category there.
