I'd never heard that term before so I looked it up- live and learn, thanks mikehit.

I don't appear to have stopped the discussion, so it looks like I'm not even a proper Nazi Grin

err...No thanks, been there, done that and it ain't for the faint of heart Smile.....
Seriously though, you have to be fairly thick skinned and it certainly gives you a different perspective on what the mods, Pete and the rest of the team have to put up with on a daily basis. I would do it again, but due to health problems, which was the original reason I gave it up as I remember I can't commit to it. The lunatics would really be in charge of the asylum if I did Tongue

GrinGrinGrinGrin.......Trust me Paul, that's tame to some of the things I was called, but like you I suspect that's water off a ducks back as far as were concerned Wink

Who called you that Paul? I trust they aren't a member anymore?

Maybe if they made some of the more fringe-dwelling of us Mods, it'd be the wildest and wooliest site on the net.Wink

Denny, you and I have more chance of being struck by lightning.

It would wake this place up though.

As I'm modding on another big photography site (ok not as bit as EPZ but still big enough) I won't put myself up here; but I will say that from what I've seen the EPZ team has some strong guidelines and team ethic behind the scenes. That makes so much difference when moderating - its not lone gunners fighting it out against the forum.

Those insults, names and things that get slung at mods, yeah it happens, but normally there is the team of mods there behind you to back you up and help take the sting out of them; and when those words are undeserved also there to exact punishment upon those who need to learn to curb their tongue at times Wink


Good luck to whoever signs up and I hope that the Team here can increase, being understaffed is not fun, for mods being a little overstaffed is always the best, sure you'll trip over each others feet now and then when modding and catching the same error/problem, but it means you don't have to be stressed out having to deal with everything and it also means mods can slip in and out as other commitments take up time without affecting the team itself.

I got sacked as a Mod from the last photo site I was on so I don't think I'd be suitable. Apparently I argued too much! Unbelieveable, I know. Grin

Hehe that`s pretty bad, but I`m a good one to talk, I`m banned from a very large chain of coffee shops Smile

. . . getting even farther from the subject in hand; I was once thrown out of Hyde Park and I've been refused service in Harrods.

Actually, I have!

I got as far as reception before a security man in fancy dress escorted me to the door.
