Since the forum is growing larger after the RAW video stuff, I think it's about time we have a proper moderation team that keeps stuff organized.

Moderators' duties are:
- Basic topics management (split / close / move when appropriate)
- User management (issue bans / warnings and so on)

The only requirements are:
- Basic english read/write skills
- Have a bunch of helpful posts on the forum
- Have some free time to spare

When applying, state your local time zone, free hours and if you'd like to moderate a particular board.

Hey man! I am interested. In UK so GMT here. My hours vary due to doing Theatre and Film so I'm working anything from nothing to 100+ hours a week but almost always have the iPad with me and I'm on here on the regular. most of my activity has been around the 6D and 7D threads and I'm gonna start a new thread and also an install guide (as soon as someone can proof it for me) for 6D in a jiffy but I really don't mind what I do as long as it contributes and helps the ML community :)

Kraig.
Lynne, some of these people have come from Stoke!

What is this free hours thing you speak of?   ???

Given that it's highly likely I'm going to be shooting a feature with the ML MK3 raw in a few months I'm going to be around a lot anyway so why not.

AEST. I'm gonna be spending most of my time in general dev and post workflow.

I can help with 5D3 most of the time but sometimes I may unreachable for up to two or three weeks.
Could work on Tutorials since I am not a programmer.  (UTC/GMT) -5

AEST (GMT+10), free hours would be 4+ hours on weekdays and weekends. No preference to any particular board. I own/administrate and moderate my own forum as well. I frequently visit the IRC chat as well.

GMT+1.
I usually spend up to several hours daily on the forum (and the chat, if that helps).
I would prefer the development board, but any other would be fine as well.

I'll throw my hat in the ring. GMT -4, usually on the general discussion and "share" boards.

I'm pretty much on here all the time. Well, as long as 4G or wi-fi is close by.

Been frequenting many different forums for years now as well, so I have a good idea of how they should operate.

GMT +10.  I'm happy with whatever boards need help.

I'm generally online 12pm-02am forum board time most days.  I've performed similar tasks at other sites.

I would like to help, GMT +1. I can spend some time daily to moderate a tread. I follow the 650D tread, however i would not mind tending to something else.

Welcome on board to our new moderation staff  :D

Noisyboy, Audionut, SDX, RenatoPhoto and Squig are now forum-wide mods. You guys have no particular forum assigned, so try to do your best to keep this place clean :)

In addition to this:

- blade and Lucas_W now have moderation rights in the "New Ports" forum
- N/A will help moderate the "Share" section, which is currently a bit under-staffed.

Looks like the moderators could use some extra help.

All posts from new users are moderated (say hello to spammers), and lately, some of them get approved after several days or even a few weeks. When these posts eventually do get approved, they are no longer in the recent posts lists, so they sometimes become hard to notice.

I prefer not to handle this task myself, so I'm looking for one (or more) volunteers to help. Please see the first post for more details.

Thanks.

Hi everybody.

I don't  know if here is the right place to post this.

I noticed a lot of popular threads/ topics/post need, really need, an update in the first post. Lot of users are missing information, too much time reading, getting tired to pay attentions and discover new things, giving you more work to do!

Do you have a way to notify/to post/clarify/a legend to the topic creators with more than xx pages stay up to date in the first post with the latest findings, results, tools, whatever the post, thread are talking about?

Thank you!
