People will be pissed if I do it too, so what does it matter if a mod does it? I've done "worse" (or better? depends on your perspective)

But in this case it did cause even MORE drama than we already had, lol.

How times have changed...

I do think it makes sense to have a set of active/interested/trusted users, equivalent to the old definition of mods... with a name, subforum, and set of responsibilities that differ from the more specific "site mod" job that a small number of people would have.

Maybe call the larger group an "advisory council" (or something... I'm sure there's a better term.)

I would specifically like to include older members in that... as well as some people who are specifically tasked with representing the interests of the larger population of people that SS and related sites may be able to help... but who haven't found the site, or haven't become active contributors.

Their interests matter to me, even though they're often forgotten about relative to the needs of the (at times, quite insular) active userbase.

And, if we really make the most of social media platforms, YouTube, etc., there's a lot more to do than just moderate forum posts and users.

That gets into aspects of community management that go beyond what a "mod" can do with their extra buttons. Things like helping people figure out the site, getting to know people, scheduling and facilitating events like chats, hangouts, etc.... these are all things that go far beyond the traditional scope of "being a forum mod."

Thoughts on that?
I have a way better name, xcriteria. How does the name "community team" sound? Much better I presume? Razz
