@Big D5,

Now that this forum is starting to pickup, we really should be getting additional help. Any nominees?

Thanks

Honestly I have no idea I have been spending so much time ad Android Central I don't have a clue what's doing on over here. I will try to look around a bit and get back to ya.

I don't think we need any help, the forum is barely hitting 200 posts a day and we have loads of staff who simply just don't login. Should maybe get them logging in more often or I'll begin purging so we know where we're at, staff wise.

I think this needs to be done there is a long list of Mods and Admins that have not logged in, in 2 to 3 years. If everyone agrees? Then either you or I can do it but I think it needs to be done sooner than later. Hopefully with all the development going on and the addition of Mango later this year these forums will see a user jump.

Thoughts?

Yeah, agreed. I'll ping Dieter to let him know what we plan to do then perhaps you take on the Moderator primary/secondary and I'll to the same with inactive members with Admin access?

@RichEdmonds: Can you tell me who you are purging before you do that? Just want to know. I am really for looking for active moderators, hence my question. The spam level is annoying. We need a more directed approach with these spamners.

Agreed we should list the names to be purged here before if these guys want to keep there titles hopefully they will logging and post up

I'm game what did you have in mind I'm always willing to have less spam.

I will.

I just got myself an Inspire, so you'll see me over at A|C more often also.

Inspire that is one nice device my nephew has one

Dieter is fine with it, so long as we leave him as an Admin lol.

For spam, I'm going to look at upping the protection on back-end vBulletin (even though it's complete crap in 3.8 series anyway) to see if that does anything, if not then I'll have a look with Dieter at some mods we could install for better anti-spam protection. Only thing we can do for the time being is hope that members continue to report the posts and then we can physically delete them.

I've been relatively inactive as of late (projects taking time) but should be good to be on throughout each day while writing for the main site too. If you feel like you no longer can come online much then please say so (also let us know if you're going on holiday or will be absent for some time), going to start sorting this team out so efficiency is above number of staff. When I've ran previous forums or was a team leader I always made sure everyone was active within the community. A good 80% of the members with a staff position on these boards don't post or don't contribute to the community, we will all need to step up our game (presence wise) if wpcentral's forum is to maintain the reputation as the number one Windows Phone forum.

Yes, they are mods/admins after the big split. However, give me a chance to go over some of the admins. The mods you can change back to regular members.

I'm far from active in this site to expect any consideration, but...

I would suggest keeping 1 admin/mod from each of our sister sites if you have them here on staff.

We ran into something over at P|C recently that needed easy communication with staff over at A|C. Yes, we managed, but it would of been a great help if we could of just discussed it in one of the Private forums.

Just a suggestion.
