get to know your Mods

Post by Janey on Sun Feb 06, 2011 1:00 pm

I just wanted to share with you all who the mods are. They are all good people who you can turn to for help. We will be updating with further mods, however the senior mods are:

LLL (he is the webmaster too!), SNARK, MOTHER MARY (the watercooler is her domain! Smile ), MUH and myself.

I should also point out, whilst I am trying to point, that our mods also have a very diverse background from all walks of life and beliefs. That is a deliberate policy as we are very keen not to let this site descend into I hate the XXX people or I love the YYYY religion.

It is multicultural, democratic and as fair as we can make it for you all!

hey Mia, first and foremost to be on hand to help people with their problems. Secondly, to watch over the threads and use a big boot on any trolls and to moderate any discussions that get out of hand.

We are not going to be ban happy or throw out people who are not part of a particular clique, but part of the mods work is to protect us from spammers and those who are out to cause trouble. You will be able to step into arguments and delete offensive posts.

Just saying hello. I am pretty sure after being at GLP for 2 years everyone knows who I am. Especially since October of last year. Mia - Mods pretty much just go around and make sure that no one is being a shill. Any attacks on Janey will not be tolerated!!

What information do you need as the "application"?

I doubt my resume would be of any use. Smile

Yeah, I think I lurked for almost 4 years on GLP and yes Mother, I remember you from GLP, I lurked on many of your threads... :-) it really made me mad when peps said mean things to you...but I kept silent..sorry...
but when Janey came along...I was engrossed...I just could not help myself....and all the peps that were following her and supporting her was just awesome.

The mod team will also be made aware fully of who I am, where I work and what I do, so they can back up that I am a full time journalist.

This also helps prevent the constant trolling I get on the subject. I cannot share with you all for obvious reasons, but I hope you trust the mods telling you that I am a genuine journo when they see the info.

It is the fairest way we can do it without putting myself at risk. So, yes, we will be carefully vetting mod applicants also, to ensure they are not out to cause trouble!

We believe this is the best way to protect me from the Internet hooligans. I hope people agree with that.

Mia, I trust you completely as you came forward with all of your personal information to me without even asking. I have no doubts as to your integrity!

No problem at all. I knew I had a group of silent people that "followed" me. After awhile I just grew a skin and stopped hating them. Yes, that wonderful love thing. The shills and trolls over there could be quite crude. Now I kind of feel like I have come to Cheers, where everyone knows my name and the trolls will be so much less cause now karma has come back and they can't quite knock me around anymore. As so many people used to try to say over there about my weight in my avatar....I can now throw that weight around. (well, just a little bit.) LOL

And yes to Janey. Every time I think about what she does and what she has been through, I just get chocked up and I can't quite find the words to express what she means to all of us. <3
