    Dave, You might not even want to Moderate here. When I insisted they do something about the spam issue, and do something to stop the spam ads that Google AdSense was adding to the threads, they demoted me to Senior Member, removed my signature and the ability to add a signature, will not even allow me to start a thread.

    This is how seriously they take spam issues here. I swear, the administrator, Leo, and his cronies must be some of the very spammers we have been trying to eliminate for so long. It's really too bad, because we were making head way in eliminating spam, up to the point the administrators started adding spam to every post. If you don't have enough ad blockers in place you begin getting spam links added to each post. This would not be allowed in a real forum.

    I agree, Ted. Even as a casual visitor. But I did think the anti spam measures were a little over the top. But my point here was the use of the words "Game forum"???

    I see that now. I missed it at first glance. Perhaps they really do think this is all a game. I'm sorry but I spent literally hundreds of hours here and when things became tense their response was good-bye. It just irritated the hell out of me!

    no malicious intent, Ted, but. I was one of the first moderators on this site but left for personal reasons - nothing to do with the Admin, at that time. But I would remind you that quite some time ago, I criticised a moderator for making an unsubstantiated, and wrong, comment on an aspect of Windows8. He had confessed earlier that he did not even have it installed and had never tried it. You came rather strong and suggested that criticising a moderator could lead to dismissal. Food for thought??

    Thanks guys. I'm qualified, but I'm not sure I would spend enough time, beyond the daily time I spend here already, to really help or feel good about (yet another in a half-century's list) honorable title.

    But the whole thing IS very interesting to me. Helping people and using computers, this is where my life has been spent. THIS project - being part of the interface between industry and consumer on Windows 8 - well I think it's reasonably important. Should this project work, it would mean one look one feel one BASIC skill set = ANY DEVICE ANYWHERE becomes equally useful, at least potentially. Kinda a Lincoln moment, in terms of what could follow...

    johnwerneken, you don't need to spend all day here to be a Moderator, but do need to spend some time, as noted in threeone's description above.

    I try to spend at least 3 hours per night here. Not all Moderators spends that much, as some has to work or attend school. I'm able to spend as much time as I do due to being disabled, at home a lot. Not during the day much though, as I participate in therapy to stay mobile & active.

    Contact threeone about any concerns you may have.

    @johnwerneken,

    Cat expressed clearly. You dont need to spend all day on the forum. I suggest that you have a try.
