Congrats, Varun - I personally welcome your presence on this list in
another capacity - the new feather on your cap. Your insightful posts
and lovely trip reports have a wide fan following, and I'm sure you'll use
the same charm in your new capacity as well.
With warm regards,

Guys - the last date for the new mod application is this weekend for convenience sake I'll say end of Sunday 11th July Pacific time!

Last time around we got no applications, and I hope we don't have a repeat of that scenario this time too. It would imply you guys love the current mods too much to want to change anything Wink

Hi folks
Time to thank Varun for this two stints. We are now open to having is replacement for the next 6 months. Kindly express your interest in becoming a Rotational Mod by sending an expression of interest to "airlinersindia@yahoo.com". Just a brief note would be fine. Let the deadline for the application be Jan 25th, as we would like to appoint new one by Jan 31st.
regards

folks!
This is probably the third time we didn't get any nominations for Rotational Mod, so we have decided to made Spyderguy as one of the Permanent Mod.
But, at the same time we are keeping the gates open for future. Say if any point of time members are dissatisfied with Spyderguy, and want a change they do as follows. Say, if we get 30 or more request for change in a suitably titled thread within a weeks time, then we will be open for replacement for him. That again will be for a Rotational Mod for a duration of 6 months.
The underlying philosophy is that we are following a procedure which does not attact any response. So, maintain status que untill a point where we see widespread dissatisfaction.
Thanks for understanding.
VT-ASJ on behalf of Moderation Team.

Congrats to spiderguy.

Personally believe Mods [Temp/permanent] should be more active on the forums....Understandbly folks are busy with occupation,then thats a reason to step down & hand over reigns to the more active members.

Obviously aseem to retain ultimate control of forum for obvious reasons.

The forum has not evolved,its presently running well on Auto Pilot............Its only used for a little discussion,news posts & picture sharing....Posting members have reduced over the months....This needs to be increased.....

Aseem....Are there any stats that can tell us the real picture.....

With due respect to your opinion, here would be my few points. I don't think a forum should be moderator heavy, such that it gives an impression that its their fiefdom. What is more important is mods create an atmosphere where members feel free to express themselves openly. That being said, Nimish is pretty active due to his experience gained due to frequent travel.

Regarding evolving, we are short of implementable ideas. Also, discussion is something you cannot enforce. The best you can do is create conducive atmosphere. There are no stats per se of member who have left. They may still be registered, but not using. But, overall I am very satisfied. The spammers have come down to almost nil. There are no perpetual quarrelling members. I feel there are a lot more members who quietly read than post. On the whole I feel satisfied.

Thnx
