Moderators are the people that help us at BnA keep the boards in tip-top rockin shape.

Moderators keep an eye out for spam, member-bashing, incorrect placement of topics and help with general 'board maintenance.' Moderators have the power to move and delete threads and individual posts. They can also edit other people's posts. Moderators will edit or delete posts that have incorrect links, defamatory remarks or that violate our posting guidelines, code of conduct or terms of service. Moderators can 'moderate' most of the forums on BnA. They'll contact you if they have edited or deleted your post and tell you the reasons why.

Moderators are selected by BnA staff based on their contributions to the boards and fair manner. Any issues with moderators can be brought up with Community Manager Jessica (jessica at bootsnall dot com). Community members can bring up issues with other members by contacting the Community Manager, any of the moderators or other BootsnAll staff members.

At the moment (January 2012), we don't currently have any active Mods on the BootsnAll boards. Do you want to change that? Do you think you have what it takes to be on the Mod Squad? Let Jessie know!

Hey guys — just wondering if the 'report a post' feature is working. I've been taking the time to report posts and accounts that are spammy — just wondering if the features working or not. There seems to be an increase in thread necromancy lately. I've seen posts long dead suddenly come back to life!

Jessie,

Who are the mods these days?
Static and Skobb haven't been online since September, Slip since May 2009!
AJV was on at start of Feb but surely the boards requre more active participation/monitoring than that..?

Would be nice to know who's keeping everything ticking over :)

Mostly just me these days, mate. There are several members who are great at helping police the boards by flagging inappropriate posts which I review every now and again and weed out the spammers (and anyone can do it). Thankfully we don't have much in the way of trolls or folks looking to pick a fight so there's less need of the moderation we used to have.

...All by yourseeeelf, don't wanna be all by yourself, anymore...

True, I guess there isn't the same level of chatter/debate on contentious topics as you'd see a few years back. Maybe time to un-sticky that post!

I have a bone to pick. On the Africa board description it mentions quite clearly the "dark continent." I spent a semester in a class researching subtle racist remarks and this was one of the bigger ones we discussed. I think this term is outdated and insulting, despite it's prevalence world-wide. I'm not suggesting anyone on here is racist, not BootsnAll as a whole, I just think there about a million other ways to describe Africa without having to use this term. ...Just saying.

Easily fixed, mate. I've updated the description.
