What are the guidelines to be a moderator? I think whs and ScottW should be mods..

whs and ScottW are question-answering machines! I seriously don't know what we'd do without them.

Why burden them by making them deal with spammers and grouchy people? =)

Thanks for the flowers. May I graciously decline the recommendaton. I prefer to help (where I can) rather than administer - and both are too much for an old man.

PS: I just saw the Geeks post. More flowers and he got the idea. Thanks Geek.

Hahaha, thats funny. reading all the mods posts it appears that they pretty much are stuck in the basement of HTG's Oma, eating leftover spam all day! ;) That sure would be a huge burden for anybody! haha, jk.

Actually, it is in the dungeons within the catacombs under HTG Towers. Oma and ScottW managed to escape.
Not far wrong about the Spam tho'.

No need to add 'em up. Just look in Forum Statistics.

Nice idea Beauseph, but as the others said, they're much too valuable!

Hi LH - that is not what I meant and I was under the impression it also wasn't what ProstheticHead meant: we just think Rick deserves some credit:)

Don't wish the dungeons and chains on anyone else <wink wink>.

But Rick definitely falls into the "question-answering machine" category - as the Geek called it.
