• We just finished a major forum upgrade. Please check out the "Whats New and Help" Thread at https://aawforum.org/community/index.php?threads/forum-upgrade-whats-new-and-help-march-2021.17436/ If you are having problems using the forums, please clear your browser cache and that should clear up any issues.

  • 3/30/21 - We finished what was hopefully the last part of the forum upgrade we started earlier this month, the rebuilding of all of the permissions. In our testing everything seems to be working correctly but if you have any problems please post in the "Forum Technical Support" forum and we will take a look at it. You will also see a few changes with the main forum index. We have moved the AAW Member Forums to their own group and the Marketplace Forums to their own group. This simplified the permissions configuration for the forums and hopefully it will make the forums a little easier to naviagate. Thanks!

Bill will do a fine job.
Good choice.

Woo hoooo..........Mr. B is a treasure trove of knowledge on a variety of subjects! No doubt he will do a fine job!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, guys. Actually, my job is fairly simple and doesn't involve exercising any superpowers (I wasn't issued a cape or a title -- it's more like being a stealth mod). And, there won't be any banning for life or any other such stuff. Occasionally, somebody doesn't know or forgets the forum rule about posting no more than two images per day in the gallery. The reason for the limit of two images per day is so that there will be sufficient opportunity for folks to view and comment on recently posted turnings before they scroll off the page into hyperspace. So, if you have a bunch of photos of your turning that you would like for others to see, just spread them out over a span of several days so that photos posted by others will have their chance to be seen as well.

Roger, I don't know about being a treasure trove of knowledge ... I understand that sucking up to a mod is considered a capital offense. :D

So Bill.......instead of being a "bouncer", you will be more like a "traffic cop" who directs traffic in an intersection......? :rolleyes:

No doubt you will take your duties seriously, and will provide a service to the forums........good luck!:D

That is a good way to summarize it. Moderating the forum gallery (my intersection using your traffic cop analogy) is for folks to enjoy and I am not nor do I want to be the Barney Fife of the Internet. I will see if we can make the photo posting rules more conspicuous. Right now, there is some conflicting information in old rules and some of the information is a bit hard to find for those who aren't frequent posters.

Congrats Bill, no doubt you'll do a fine job, just lay off the doughnuts, and no disco dancing in the middle of the intersection! :rolleyes:
