Not a complaint, mind you, but merely an observation.
I notice two things: One relatively trivial, the other potentially a big problem.
The first is posts that, arguably, end-up in the wrong sub-forums. There are even a couple in here. E.g.: Something about learning to sail ending-up in gear & maintenence. Like I said: Trivial, but keeping things neat leads to a more useful forum, IME.
The other is potentially a big problem, because it can render a forum a wasteland unless it's checked early and, unfortunately, often: Spam.
Now the reason I mention this is I'm wondering if Sailnet is short on moderators? I'd normally not volunteer for such a thing, as it's been my experience that most forums don't take volunteers as moderators (because they suspect, and rightfully so, IME, that many volunteers are looking for the power trip they think they'll get
), but I suspect y'all are a bit short on moderators?
Don't know how long I'll be here. Could be wifey and I will find we don't like sailing as much as we thought we would. Could be we'll like it so much we'll sail off, never to be heard from again. Anything could happen. But I'm here now, I've got moderation experience, and I'm willing to help.
