Increase in the number of Moderators

I am starting this in the General Discussion area as I believe its relevant to our whole Sailnet Experience and will receive comments by most SN participants vs. the OTH area in which many don't even look in. If the MODS determine that it needs to be moved so be it

As a long time member of SN I have huge respect and admiration for the MODS and their volunteering to " police" and "preserve" the integrity of our site. They are diligent, work together, and have seemed IMHO to be evenhanded. In addition their is enough balance among them to ensure a good decision.

Recently there was a thread which created a fair amount of controversy where there was an obvious personal attack and violation in terms of our rules and TOS. It stood visible for a fair amount of time. A couple of hours at least if not more.

As it was handled and eventually disappeared from view some of the MODS comments were that they had real jobs ( like I do ) and did get to it right away. That plus the difference in time zones our MODS live in have lead me to conclusion that having a few more MODS may help decrease the burden and share the load we have put on them.

None of this is meant to imply on any level that I think they don't do a good job or am criticizing their decisions. In fact nothing can be further from the truth. They do a great job. I just think having a few more may help increase coverage and prevent a long gap in time passing when something of importance needs to be addressed quickly.

In this spirit....drumroll.... I nominate Wingnwing. She may not be available or certainly will longer be my friend as I haven't consulted her before posting this, but what the hell she'd make a great MOD. She also represents a segment of our community mainly the live aboard one, which needs to be represented.
