fishin...what does a moderator do? Are you there in the background, quietly meditating on moderating or is moderation in all things necessarily an active role?
Well umm.. I'm not really sure what I do. I'm just me for the most part!
On occassion, when I see someone ask questions about technical aspects of the Forums I try to point them towards an answer. Otherwise, I suppose if things got really rough and tumble I could call a "time-out" (I got a little silver whistle that goes with the job!) and ask the parties at loggerheads to cool their jets and/or tone down the fisticuffs. Should we get someone who insists on throwing tantrums and making life miserable for everyone else I can remove posts but that is really a very last resort.
If "Moderator" = "Sheriff" then you could think of me as the Andy Griffith type. Well golly...
