Continuing the discussion from Mighty Boosh Quiz:
That’s correct, @Bubu, thank you for deleting it. I would like to therefore raise a new topic here.
I already asked @relan once whether they want to become moderator of the forum and now want to ask publicly for this. A lot of trusted people are already at user trust level 3 or 4 which gives them many rights like @Bubu has shown with hiding this topic. This releases some work from me as the only active moderator at the moment, but there are still some things to do that only moderators can do.
For example this post. The user wrote this two days ago but I saw it today by accident because I do not browse the forum that often but mostly only join it when getting notified by mail. So approving posts Discourse marks as potentially wrong is one thing. The other thing is reviewing posts users flagged by some reason.
These are the two main things that only moderators can do. Because I think there are other users more active in the forum, I would like to add some new moderators to the forum. I haven’t had the time to wrote some kind of moderation manifest but this posts explains my style.
We can have a discussion about whether this is the correct style, but until we have this I would like the new moderators to align with this defensive/passive moderation style, mostly only deleting spam.
So after this long text, here is a list of people I think of potential moderators. If you think you are right for this job, too, feel free to reply to this topic. If someone thinks one of the persons mentioned here should not become moderator, please write me a private message with an explanation.
