    I just wanted to let you know that I've promoted two new members to moderator status!

    JonMikal - Critique and Photo Gallery
    Hertz - Photographer Discussion

    Both of them have shown particular interest in these given areas and have made it clear to me that they wanted to really be a bigger part of TPF and help out if possible...to bad they didn't realize what they were in for! :lol: Thanks guys!

    Also, a few of us were talking and the discussion was brought up that we have TONS of moderators, so I thought I'd take a moment to talk about this subject.

    Right now, we have 3 tiers of people who formally help with TPF and here is how they break down:

    • Admins - overall site control, major decisions and changes, global moderation, break/fix issues, etc
    • Super Moderators - global moderation capabilities, these were generally moderators from before the conversion to VBulletin
    • Forum Moderators - these are people who have been selected to moderate specific areas of the site, generally based on the interest they showed for a given area.

    The reason I wanted to mention this is that I want to make sure you all understand my reasoning behind the number of moderators we have. Although it may appear like a huge TPF policeforce :lol:, what I'm really looking for are people who can take ownership of a given area and put something special into it. Each person was specifically chosen for this reason and I hope each one of them will help make a difference in each of their given areas.

    Oh yeah, and they'll delete your messages and/or ban you if you piss them off! :biglaugh:

    In thinking about things just a little more, I've renamed the "Forum Moderators" group to "Forum Leaders". I think that is a more descriptive and accurate title for them!

    Congrats guys.
    I actually noticed yesterday that you were on the mod list - but I thought it was a glitch in the machine. :lol:
