I'd like someone who can post a few threads, answer any questions that come up that I may not see, and have a good time on the board with games!
We want someone who realizes that there are a lot of opinions out there. We'd like you to allow everyone to have their own say, without judging them for it. You can edit member's posts in order to remind them of the guidelines and if needed, to delete specific things that do not follow the guidelines. You can't delete posts but if it's needed when someone gets really bad or spasm us, just let either me or Amy know. We'll take care of it. We don't like to delete posts often, and only do it when absolutely necessary. We like everyone to have their say. :) The writers, will still remain moderators but you may not see them much. Amy and I will be contact moderators for you, when you're in need. Amy is my assistant, in addition to being a writer on the site so you can contact either of us by clicking the contact us page, or by emailing us from the email addresses under our pictures. (She works on the Y&R and OLTL writing - Y&R changes hands as of Monday as I need to have more time on my hands for other Ed-in-Chief stuff!
Posting in all caps: Edit their post, write something like, "Please do not use all caps in your posts, as it is hard on the eyes and against soaps.com guidelines"…
Profanity/Racial slurs: Edit their post, remove the word(s), replace it with stars *** and in bold, write "Please follow guidelines - no profanity/racial slurs allowed! Thanks!" ((Last night we implemented a system that disallows a person to post profanity, by blocking specific words.))
Important: Please do not ever engage in arguments with other members. If someone is pushing your buttons - and you can't diffuse the situation, ask Amy or me for help. Sometimes it helps to have someone else take over!! Lastly, if any moderator is caught abusing their post in any capacity, we will remove mod status immediately.
