I think I would make a great moderator.

Think of me as a 'thief-catcher' - I understand the twisted mind of the SF poster who doesn't support the Steelers as their No.1 team.

Quite frankly there are some guys from other teams who need reining back in - Hawk Believer would be the first on my list - then probably Cantstop85 - underneath the (admittedly deep) disguise of being nice guys - they are nothing but subversives.

Vote now.

Vote LITP.

LMFAO!!! You're too funny, LITP! :sofunny: You'd make a GREAT Mod - on a Pats BB. :smile:

Just my two cents here. I think Tony, BlackNGold203 and BBC would make great Mods. A Mod has to be fair, unbiased and have earned the respect of his/her fellow members. All 3 of these guys fit that mold perfectly, imho. :cool: Much like Mike, Pros and 83.

Have a great weekend everyone! :smile:

Looks like someone has us all figured out, Hawk...I guess we can't keep up that nice guy charade anymore. :boxing:

I would make a great moderator because...well, quite frankly because I'm a Bengals fan. :bouncy: They don't come any more fair-minded. :mallet:

I would love to handle just the Recipe board.... I have been part of several food related boards for several years, and it would be fun to perk up interest in things to eat and prepare for game days and tailgate parties....

I could add the 'feminine touch' to that board - - - sort of like SF's own Martha Stewart...... Wait------ Strike that!!!!!

I would be interested but I feel I'm too new on this board. My credentials? I'm a moderator on another website and have been for nearly 2 years. It is interesting but a tough-love job that I get to do in my spare time and it is for another love of mine, music.

Good luck in your search!

No, subterfuge is deception by artifice or stratagem in order to conceal, escape, or evade. For once, large vocabulary words actually come in handy. But let's just call it a dessert.

I'd like to sign up to be a moderator.

I've been a forum fanatic ever since I discovered them on the interwebs tubes back in 1998. I run my own set of forums and have moderator status on 2 other sets.

I just saw a porno ad someone spammed into the "Recipes" section of these forums. I reported it, but damn I'd like to be able to remove it and ban that SOB spammer that posted it.

PM me if you have any questions.

Well, we're really looking for a few good moderators now (we already have a few in mind) since Prosdo decided to call it quits after being invited to become a moderator elsewhere. It was just a matter of time and we don't blame her. The pressure is enormous at this message board and requires a lot of delegation.

However, looking forward I see a promising future for this message board only if the staff steps up and runs this place with an iron fist. We are no longer going to settle off-site disputes and if you can't play nice you will be gone, no questions asked.

You are free to leave and join any one of the other thousands of message boards on the internet if you feel you can't fully express your person here.

It's getting old Tony. why would i want litp banned? if that were the case i wouldve constantly been narcing on him and reporting him. but i havent. i feel he serves a purpose on this board as i have stated about many teams fans. it is people like black and gold forever who chose to run off 16 year old little girls because they feel threatened.

if its "getting old" and if you are so sensitive about my opinions i will just scratch your name off the mod ballot.

i think steelersfever is already on record as saying people need to quit being so sensitive and grow some thicker skin.

i dont think this board was designed for oprah winfrey fans.

Forone Tony I didn't know she was 16 years old. All I knew she kept posting the same stupid BS over and over and there was no need for it. For weeks I let her post on how the Steelers Super Bowls were tainted due to the Steelers taking Steroids in the 1970's and the Steelers Super Bowl was tainted due to so called bad calls last year. Did I take it to the extreme on her? Hell yea I did but I don't play that shit and I'm not playing that shit with your ass either.

you LET her run her mouth??? should we all bow to you now or wait for the trumpets to sound?

it was an opposing teams fan talking smack in the blast furnace and you caught feelings. nothing more, nothing less.

anyways (to avoid a thread hijacking) it is MY opinion that we dont need a bengalfan, patfan, ravenfan etc. as a mod of steelersfever. if you dont like MY opinion, i suggest you see the PAY ATTENTION thread in the nfl forum. its steelerfevers board and the decision will be made regardless of what i think. im cool with that. some probably arent.

I wouldnt go so far as to say I was an apologist, but I did agree with him on several issues (one of which I wass way off on, with Rudi being better than Willie). I just don't go to the extremes to disagree with fans of other teams that you do. I am a pretty open guy when it comes to opinions, especially on football. Although I do tend to stick up for fans of other teams(like the Saints fans), I don't think that makes me "soft". For the most part you are one of the posters here whose posts I enjoy reading. LITP is too, but your little "rivalry" is a bit well, not quite hetero.

I def don't have thin skin, not too much offends me, with the exception of dogs and donkeys doing it. I don't know why that bothers me, I love the donkey show in Guam.

ive been known to defend some other teams fans too. the more on the board the merrier. and others i have been known to repeatedly blast, especially when they repeatedly post crap (like bengalbrain)

i enjoy all aspects of this board- civil discussions of creationism vs. evolution in the locker room. heated discussions of whether cowher should be fired in the steelers forum. general nfl talk in the nfl forum and especially the competitive banter and shit talking in the blast furnace (which is why i havent offered to be a mod even though many have suggested i do so).

its nothing personal against LITP. honestly i think he would be a fine mod IF he were a steelersfan. im more concerned about the image of the board, having non steelerfans policing the thoughts and discussions. it would seem too much like a prison warden. thats all.

Here we see a demonstration of Tony's strictly non-personal approach to my application to be a moderator(selecting a non-steeler fan over me, and one who doesnt spend much time here at all)

You might want to check you haven't contradicted yourself in the very same thread next time you make a claim like that.

Like I said, you had your say.

Anyone who wants to see where this discussion went off the rails (and into personal attacks) need look no further than your first contribution to it (post #33)

NMhow is post #33 a personal attack?
that would be like seahawk fans being refs in the superbowl. bad idea
:confused:
for 1, i think our mods should ATLEAST know what a personal attack is. i didnt "select" anyone over you. HB barely even posts here and i doubt he would wanna come around every day just to play mod.

you can say this board attracts 2 types of people: "steelerfans" and "non-steelerfans". if it came down to it i would vote for HB if it were an elected post. out of all our non steelerfans he showed the most dignity in losing, especially when all the chips were at stake. i just so happen to respect that and dont see why you see it as such a slap in the face.

i would be the last steelerfan you would vote for, right? i have no problem with that. hell, you couldnt take it when i would joke around with the idea of being "blast furnace mod".

and whats that mean, i "had my say"? are you telling me i cant speak on the matter anymore? :dang: it is a discussion board and i am discussing the correct topic in the appropriate forum without the phantom personal attacks you claim.

steelersfever will make what he feels is the best choise for his board regardless of what i think. just like the rooneys will make the choise for head coach for their team. regardless of which way either parties go im sure it is a topic that will be discussed.

Yes, nicely misunderstood Tony.

You'll notice I quoted you in the previous post saying that you'd vote for HawkBeliever over me - because he'd be 'fair and balanced' - your words not mine.

What I am saying is that your influence on the thread is nearly always a negative one - this was an adult thread about possible mod candidates - until you appeared in it.

Since then you have had a run in with two Steeler fans and made disparaging remarks about me.

Whether anyones feeling are hurt is not the point - the quality of post on a thread rapidly deteriorates, in alot of cases, when you get involved - thats pretty much an indisputable fact.

I am of the opinion that anyone who wants to be a moderator, should probably have three distinct characteristics.

1. A strong supporter of the overall board.

2. Shown an ability to debate, discuss, WITHOUT getting personal

3. Shows an affinity for the Steelers and thier fan base as a whole.

Furthermore, IMO, it would probably do better to nominate other to this type of position. Most people who would be a good moderator would NOT nominate themselves.

For instance, I would love to see Lamberts Lost Tooth as a Mod. He seems to be very mature in his posting, even when people disagree. I would love to see HomeTownGirl as a mod (EDIT: HEY.... WHEN DID SHE BECOME A MOD?)... though I would want a definition of picklepuss first!:sofunny:

Mosca would be good too... (yeah, he actually did volunteer as well, but still), He has handled a few disagreements in threads VERY WELL without a HINT of ugliness.
