Re: CHANGES to the Buy/Sell/Trade Board

I was thinking this myself, you mods must have your hands full as LPF keep on gaining more members.

Out of all the people on the forum I think Trevor would make a good moderator, though he probably doesn't have the time.
He's also not in Europe ;)

Although we are ALWAYS interested in additional help, we really NEED someone in Europe
We are getting more and more European members

Right now we have North and South American time zones
as well as Australian and Asian time zones covered

We NEED coverage in Europe and the Middle East

Peace,
dave

Right, missed that part :p

As far as European members go, I think Blord would make a great Moderator.

Re: CHANGES to the Buy/Sell/Trade Board

This is a good change for LPF. It will help assure anyone looking to profit from LPF. That they must at least show somewhat of a interest in contributing back to the community first.

My hats off to the mods and their growing responsibilities

Re: CHANGES to the Buy/Sell/Trade Board

Password protection seems to be an all-or-nothing switch

I believe that we are only looking at (at most) a few hours delay anyway

You can look to see how quickly we usually get to spammers to see that one of the mods is here most of the time

Peace,

There goes my plans to sell a 5W in a fleshlight host :undecided:

Re: CHANGES to the Buy/Sell/Trade Board

Beside assuring that potential LPF sellers are constructively contributing to the forum.

Our trusted moderators can also police the sale threads. Their experience should allow them to quickly detect any bull s*#t, and make the seller fix their ads. Or even not allow the seller to post if the ad has the potential to cause too much drama.

Re: CHANGES to the Buy/Sell/Trade Board

Ok well this is embarising but what determines points. ( I should know this):D
Reputation points?

People click on the rep button under your avatar and either add or remove reputation from you. You can do this to anyone, and they can do this to you.

If someone with 100 rep gives you a positive rep, then you gain one. If they have 200, you gain 2 rep. Ect.

I think any Vet can easily help police the Sales Threads and report
back to a Mod at any time (report Button)...
This gives the Mods a lot of extra eyes...

Re: CHANGES to the Buy/Sell/Trade Board

There should also be a cleanup of the stickies and whatnot in the for sale section... IMHO there shouldn't be a half page of stickies on the board that's supposed to be post, sell and close... I've always hated the clutter on this particular forum... I know it's paid advertisement, but maybe try to reorganize it so the useless stuff isn't so much in the way.

1 sticky, with selling rules, in bold, pink, flashing letters; aka post pictures with username etc, or moderators won't accept the thread... to save a bit of work on the mod's part...

As far as I know... The Stickies in the 2 Sales Sections
are for items that are ALWAYS available....
Not Johnny's Super Duper one time build sale..

I really wish the Tmart, Dinodirect and refreshlaser stickies could be taken down. They are quite useless.

Exactly what I meant, they're there because they're "ALWAYS" (in all caps, bold, and yellow. Thanks Jerry but I can still read even without the special effects) available but "NEVER" used.
