HostBill Forums Volunteer Roles
« on: May 18, 2013, 01:45:49 AM »
in order to establish a successful community, a humble team with a helpful attitude is needed. At this very time there's no need for a huge team, but for the sake of having order on a forum, moderation will someday be needed. The open roles are displayed below.

Global Moderators
- Lawrence
- Patrick
- John
- None are needed as of this time. Will be looking for another Global Moderator @ 250-750 Members.

Board Moderators
- Available [General] Full Section
- Available [General Section] > [General HostBill Discussion] Individual Board
- Thetrusteeco [Developers] Full Section
- Enterprisevpssolutions [HostBill Forums] > [Requests - Suggestions - Feedback] Individual Board
- Cloudhopping [Other Boards] > Full Section

There're some regulations involved with being a moderator. You must follow these simple rules.

  • This is an open forum. Individuals are entitled to their freedom of speech.
  • Subject edits are to be limited to prepending / editing tags [tag] to subjects and clarifying the subject if necessary or if unclear.
  • Post edits are logged and publicly visible to everyone, so good reason is needed for editing another user's post.
  • There are no justifications for banning a user that has a valid HostBill license. They are a HostBill customer, and have every right to be here.
  • Anything illegal found to have been posted on these forums is to be archived immediately.

Of course this comes with other moderator tasks, all of which are self explanatory to anyone with forum experience. Removal of spam should this forum ever be the target of such just to name one of them. You will not be expected to perform these tasks, you are after all a volunteer.

Benefits
There are none. The only benefit here is creating a professional environment for other HostBill users to get the help they need. You will gain the recognition of the community as a good-willed contributor and viewed as someone who's putting forth their time to help others.

Your Moderator Status
Since you are a moderator, there may be a natural interest in who you are. People will be viewing your profile. Regardless of your status, you are still a HostBill customer, and have all the rights and benefits of a standard user on the forums. Everyone has these rights, so the final rule in being a moderator is to not exploit your role to gain a competitive advantage over your colleagues. Examples aren't needed, but a few will be provided regardless.

  • Making one of your posts in the development boards a sticky to raise views.
  • Hiding / deleting another user's post to gain more visibility.

With all that said, anyone interested in being a forum moderator please reply to this topic and you will be considered. Individuals that are helpful / participate more on these forums will be given higher priority.

Hello,

I'm willing to volunteer for either position if still available.  I would prefer the Developers sections though, as that is more to my interest.

I know I'm new here; just found out this was here.  I gave up on the HostBill Forums a few months ago (the official ones that have run off and hidden under a rock). I've posted some stuff, see if you want me as moderator.  If not that’s okay too, I am really quite busy, but like what you are trying to do here.

My opinion on HostBill/Kris/etc. is at WHT #199. Warning, it's long, but KBKP has more than one problem.

My intent in joining this forum is stated in Introduce yourselves! #13.

I cannot guarantee I can come to the forum everyday, but will try to stop by 2-3 times a week.

Okay, we have a good volunteer crew ready! I'll re-open this thread when the time comes / when there's a need for further applications.

I am going to be opening this topic again with new roles available. John will be moved to Global Moderator and there will be 2 roles open for users. This is due to the increase of activity on the forums, and I'll need all the help i can get maintaining these forums. Stay posted.

John has proven to be a great asset to this forum, which is why he is considered for the role. Thanks John!

This topic is now open for 2 more individuals. Once I have 2 more volunteers, I'm probably going to close out this topic for quite a while. I didn't anticipate the work load, so I had to open it back up a little early. My apologies if I've swayed from what I've said earlier.

Anyone that's interested, please make sure that you have at least 10 forum posts and would like to help out the HostBill community. As always, the only benefit to being a mod is the thrill of helping others.
