    Techno said it well. One is definitely enough. It's not really what most people think about when they hear the word "moderator", they think it's all about banning and locking posts, moving them. Sure it has some stuff to do with it, the main thing is making sure the forum is always up and running to the standards of the Admins, and to help in every way possible. The main points to always keep in mind are:

    Be nice (considerate, polite, helpful).
    Be honest.
    Post appropriate to the topic.
    Don't spam, phish, or abuse the forums.

    To have your own forum, first know that it's expensive. You have to buy the forum software, and then you have to BUY space on a suitable server. Then there is maintenance of the software and maintenance of the forum and its content. That's where moderators come in..... to ban the spammers, correct gross misspellings and the like.
    Knowing how to spell yourself is a big first step. Spell-Checker is your friend.
    Never capitalizing the proper words and misspelling others is a sure fire road to failure.

    Incorporating ad's into the forum, like Google-Ads, can mean the demise of a forum. I've seen it happen twice.
    I've seen two perfectly good forums that bit the dust, because of too many ad's and banners.

    So you still want to have your own forum?

    It was reported that King Henry the 8th didn't have much of a sense of Humor either.
    "Off with their heads!" was his response to dissenters.

    Three.....maybe ???
    But not as many as there used to be.
    As the forum as died, some mod's have just left for personal reasons.

    We used to get twenty or more post a day, but now I come here day after day and see that there have been NO new posts at all. It's depressing....this used to be a fun place, back in the Windows 8 beta test days.

    Even the spammers leave this forum alone now! lol It's a great place to grab some Zzzzzzzzzzzz's
    Just joking, of course. We still get a little bit of business accomplished here.

    Welcome new member?

    There are currently 6 moderators listed but, more astonishingly, 11 Administrators! But, as said, most are no longer active.
    I see in the list that Commanerdriver is a moderator(?), although this does not show in the title. More interesting is that Technomage, who was relegated from moderator, still shows in the list as both a moderator and an Administrator, as do a couple of other moderators.
    As there is no one in charge of the forum, it is obviously all redundant info. Those who were originally chosen for those ranks, presumably still have those given powers, I have reason to believe that, in your case technomage, you may well have been relegated by one of the Moderataor/Administrators, and could be upped again in the same way.

    I can also see that the person listed, apparently, as the "top dog" was shown as active about a week ago, but did not contribute????

    Hey Dave, where did you find that list of Admins/Mods? As far as I know....I'm just a moderator, always have been since I was added. Not sure why I'm listed as an Admin as I don't have any admin privileges....strange.
