hi all,

I am glad to annouce that the moderation team is now open to suggestion to have a fifth moderator on sixth month rotational basis. The fifth moderator will be 'nominated' by the existing mods and any sort of lobbying will not be required.

Guidelines
Those members who would be interested in taking up this role are encouraged to write an email to 'airlinersindia@yahoo.com' giving a brief reason why they feel they suit the role. Members have one week time to send the request and the name of the nominated mod will be announced by the end of next week.

regards
Moderation Team

Where is the Democracy in that, should it not be by the votes of the members herein of the person [A list of people who are wanting to join and voting for them by the members] that must now join the management Wink

Or in the interest of a largesse, just give the mantle to a woman and showcase that AINET believes in equality.

Women are in aviation, in every sphere, so why not with us in our MOD team Wink

Apologies JJ - I was trying to split the thread to bring focus back to our search for new mods, but mistakenly split it at your post instead of after your post.

So Guys - after the initial week has passed, we have only 2 self-nominations for the post of a moderator Sad

Those 2 members should have received a PM from me confirming that we've got their nominations at the airlinersindia@yahoo.com email address.

In the interest of greater participation from all members, I'd like to encourage additional nominees to apply ASAP as today's the last day (1/Jan/2008).

Is it surprising yoll got only two or is it not really surprising,

I do know who the two members are though.

Also is this only for the 6 month period or full time??

The original post says 6 months, but nothing's really set in stone right now. However the intent for now is 6 months.

Guys - we have received 3 self-nominations so far for the open moderator position, and have now stopped accepting further nominations for this round.

I'd like to thank all the 3 nominees on behalf of the entire moderators team and the forum for coming forward to volunteer for this role.

We're now going to start the selection process (within the mods team), and may be in contact with the applicants if we have any questions of them.

To the rest of the forum, stay tuned for the new mod!

Hi all,

On behalf of the moderation team I'd like to thank all the three members who came forward to join. After careful consideration of all the members, we've unanimously selected 'avbuff' aka Ojas Purandare as a new member of the moderation team. I am sure he'll live up to everybody's expectation. Kindly welcome him.

As mods we can't post the names until we take their permission first, but if the participants are OK, they're welcome to post their names here directly.

Thanks once again to all 3 who sent in their nominations, and congratulations to both Ojas (who got the post) to the other two (who have their lives intact Wink)...

@ Karan

I had myself applied for the post of a MOD. Very Happy

And logically speaking the person who came up with the idea might be the third applicant.
