I've noticed many instances where mods are posting in a thread which is in the wrong category. For example, there was a thread in the professional gallery that didn't include any images, yet 2 mods posted in it and it remained there for 3 more days before someone finally moved it to the proper category. When people see mods posting, they assume that those kinds of threads are now allowed, which causes even more posting in the wrong place.

Sometimes things slip through the cracks...many times I may not even look to see what section a thread is in.

We basically are moderators, as in "to moderate", not necessarily forum cleaners. I know I personally spend quite some time on decluttering and generally cleaning up the forums, but it is a tedious task, and I may not always have the time to follow up things. And when I look through threads via the "New Posts" button, it happens I don't realise what specific forum I am in.

And believe me: I sometimes quite enjoy to also be visiting the forums as member, just to ENJOY being on TPF...

Somehow I knew this would turn into another "I'm not just a mod, I'm a member" discussion. I see it happen every time a member makes a suggestion pertaining to a mod on every forum I frequent. It's the universal "oops, I made a boo-boo" excuse.

Excuse me while I go post in the wrong category now... :p
