This one is for the Mods

What is it like to be a Mod at HF Boards? How many warnings, infractions, bans do you normally handout? What rules are commonly broken in your eyes that you need to hand out punishment? What does it take to be a Mod at HFBoards and how did you become one? Any interesting stories that standout with another user in trouble even though you can't say names? Any stuff you had to penalize someone for even though you found what was written funny?

Might as well ask these questions since no one else has asked in the off-topic thread before?

Some thoughts on being a moderator:

-I absolutely do it because I love the power associated with it, and I have no opportunities to exercise power in my "real" life.
-I should be salaried, not paid hourly.
-The favor I'm given by "lower"* posters makes up for it.
-Yes, the basement in my mom's house does have a window.
-I put "HF Moderator" on my resume.
-Only four of you *******s tipped me last year.


*"Lower" is a term used in the moderator lexicon to mean "non-moderator."

It was my understanding, Adam, that tips were no longer a part of our..."arrangement"

For an incredibly boring answer: moderation actions like warn/infract/bans/or similar things are confidential. That includes not only posters discussing any warnings they've received on the forums, but also moderators.

What does it take to be a moderator? First and foremost a time commitment to look after the forum[s] you're responsible for. We're here to help keep HFB an enjoyable place for members to participate in by seeing that the site rules are followed. If you're interested in becoming a moderator at HFB, the site rules link has info on how to apply.

Quote:
If you're interested in becoming a moderator send your application to moderators@hfboards.com. No experience is required, but you must be a member for a minimum of six months. Simply state your interest, why you want to be a moderator, and which forum(s) you're interested in moderating. The length of time you've been a member, post quality and frequency, history of warnings/infractions, and recommendations from other moderators are taken into consideration.

On a different OT topic: finished about 20 spots out of the money at the Az state poker championship this weekend--biggest tournament in Arizona. Took a couple really disappointing bad beats at the end.

Wondering if I should change my avatar. I like the WhiteOut picture but the picture I'm thinking of changing it to is a shot of Hanzal punching James Neal's lights out after the hit that he laid on Prucha before the Olympic break.

The Hanzal picture is currently set as my desktop wallpaper so I think that is enough, but what do you guys think.

Or do you even care?

OT - the Coyotes might be the only playoff team in town. Leinart looked like a deer in the headlights. Anderson was like a blind bull in a pen full of cows. There's trouble in River City. And it ain't pool.

I wouldn't worry just yet. Let's wait for the regular season to come around.

After driving about 600 miles yesterday, I'm now in DC for a few days. I've got a job interview at 1, so wish me luck. I'll be back in Philadelphia tomorrow, though hopefully just temporarily.

Leinert is starting to look like deer laying in the road after the headlights have passed over it. I know it's only preseason, but even going back to his relief appearances the past few years, he has not shown that he can run an offense.

I can't believe John McPhony won the primary again. Well, at least Arizona isn't Democratic like California.

He has the chance to achieve as much as his father did during his own career. That said, he may reach to attain "annoying but harmless" status. He may not even reach "annoying" and peak at "largely ineffective and ignored".

No politics. Don't make me give you a formal warning politely asking you not to make me give you an infraction.
