New Groups, Your Help

Hey everyone. I am not always around. Spammers are. I had hoped that are change in forum software would have cut down on the spam problem. Apparently it did not. And that means there are still times when inappropriate material gets posted to the site and has to wait until I am around to remove it. As such I'd like to put together two new groups that all Jedi Living Students may join if they so desire.

Spam Hammers: This group will be given Moderator Abilities to remove Spam. I am looking for people from all time zones and locations. So we can cover our basis as much as possible. Since this comes with a high level of responsibilities (the ability to remove/delete topics) I'll be very picky about who I allow in. This is a trust issue and trust is earned. That said, all are welcome to volunteer.

Welcome Committee: Most groups I have belonged to over the years usually had a group for welcoming new members. Nothing really changes with this group - this is more of a pledge that you will be one of the members here to make an effort to always say hello and welcome our new members who visit board. And perhaps offer a direction should they be needed.

If you would like to join either of these groups, you can reply here or send me a PM. Thank you for your time and help.

I'll volunteer as a Spam Hammer. I'm typically active in the wee hours of the night EST.

I would be happy to help as a Spam Hammer. I have done it before on a firearms forum, and that had a significantly high troll level as well as spammers. I am on the west coast and am usually at my computer before 0600.

I volunteer for this , are we to send new members welcoming pm or is it just saying hi when they make a forum post where they introduce themselves ?

I don't have a set policy. At least a reply to any "Hi! I am new" threads. If one wants to extend a Welcome PM that might include links and some direction - Archives, Tier Program, Favorite Discussion Topic. I wouldn't object - but certainly not mandatory.
If you want to be part of the Welcome Committee - have yourself a badge. :grin:
