What to read next
Over the past months, the Gallery section has begun to buzz with activity, perhaps even more so than the main forums. As a result of this, and with myself having been the sole forum moderator, I had to do basically all the deleting/nagging regarding the section. I hated doing that, and it didn't really feel like it should be such a big part of the deal as a forum mod. But fortunately, something new has come out of this frustration-
The role of Gallery moderators, of course, will be to manage gallery images and offer guidance to members on how to create art in accordance with the rules and regulations of said gallery. They'll also be the ones shaping these rules as time goes on, too. In addition, they can accept topics in and manage the Artwork/Contests/Shop forums, much like an RP Moderator does the Role-playing section. From now on, these users will be the go-to people when it comes to user's questions regarding the Gallery and Artwork Forums.
...And of course, with that, we welcome our first Gallery Moderator, @Petey Piranha! With his frequent contributions to the Gallery and Artwork sections over the past months, I think most would agree he's an ideal choice for the role.
Obviously, we'll want more than one Gallery Mod, and more will be promoted in the near future. If you think you'd like to be one, there's two steps:
1) Don't make a spammy post asking to become one
2) Fill out the following form and PM it to me!
Look forward to getting a couple more deserving members into this position, and to hopefully see its positive effects for lowering the amount things I have to do bettering the site overall!
If you have any thoughts, questions or suggestions on this idea (navy blue isn't the best color for a role username I realize but it's the one I could think of) that don't relate to prospects for future promotions, feel free post them here.
