Hello.

I would like to bring on an IK for DIY. Basically a probationary mod, to improve timezone coverage and have input into the running of the place from someone other than me. The role gives you mod buttons, but no access to reports or to the mod forums, and you don't get a blue star.

There's lots of DIY I don't spend much time in, so it'd be good to get ideas from the gamut.

If you would like to volunteer or recommend someone, please post and/or discuss it in this thread, or contact me privately (PM, discord, or jaded.burnout69@gmail.com).

Required:
- Level headed
- Interested in keeping DIY vibrant
- Not an rear end in a top hat
- DIY member in good standing

Not required (but also not forbidden):
- One of my posting mates
- Agrees with me on everything
- Sycophantic toady

Nobody will be made an IK without their enthusiastic consent.

I mean, I'd be for it if it gave me the inverted star I see on some accounts.

I think Iíve seen two posts in DIY, in the last year and a half, that warranted and received moderator action, so Iím either reading the right threads or the wrong threads, depending on the perspective.

It's definitely going to be a light load, that's for sure, but moderation can be proactive too

Don't cast any good posters into moderation. It is the path to insanity.

You mean you missed the openscad wars in the 3d printing thread. That was a Bloodbath!

I'm constantly amused and/or baffled at how the 3D printing thread is the second most contentious thread in here.

I mostly lurk the lego and hiking threads. What's the most contentious thread here?

Interior Design almost certainly.



GWS has a randomly very argumentative Kitchen Equipment thread. Goons feel very passionately about some strange stuff.

I got sick of seeing a good poster with TRUMP LOVER so enjoy this thing instead.





So the real question is who reads both interior design and 3d printing threads, or who reads every other thread so Jade can focus on the two problem children.

I only read JBs house thread and the scale modelling thread. Neither of them have ever (iirc) been in open revolt.

Yes yes. I think I get it. You start the fights so then you can ban the people.

I nominate myself.
