Cotuit

New Moderator for the Connecticut and Hartford Forums

25 posts in this topic

I have been wanting to get a local to help with the moderation duties in this section for some time, and I've finally settled on asking HartfordTycoon, and he has accepted. I think the forum will benefit from having a local who knows the ins and outs of what is actually taking place on the ground lead it.

HartfordTycoon will now have moderation powers over the Connecticut and Greater Hartford forums, all of the powers to edit threads, move threads, merge threads, pin threads, and issue punishments and warnings when people misbehave, but we all know no one ever misbehaves. ;)

Without naming names, I did consider several members, I wanted someone who lived in Hartford and spent a lot of time contributing to the forum. HartfordTycoon best fit all those criteria.

So please welcome HartfordTycoon to his new role. If you have any suggestions for how the forum can be organized or special threads to create you can post those suggestions here. HartfordTycoon and I will work to make them happen, if we can.

You should relieve yourself of moderatorating duties as well. Your decisions have been poor.

I will work on getting this forum some political clout in Connecticut as well similar to what the PVD Forum has been able to accomplish there.

Tycoon is a good choice.

I hope he suspends the practice of putting varied subject matter on a single project into one long, long post.

The Bradley Airport thread is about several different subjects, international routes, upgrades to the terminals, domestic service, even the name of the place, yet they are all just smashed together without regard to topic.

A little understanding of the differentiations inside of projects, rather than lumping them all together, would make the conversations easier to follow.

HartfordTycoon is a perfect choice for moderator. It will be nice to have a Hartford person moderating us, but you have been very good to us Cotuit. I think Hartford's first order of business should be a ban for Mikel. :D:thumbsup:

I'm sure one of us will have to ban you soon. Do I even have to say takes one to know one when it comes to making bad decisions?

I don't think moderators should ban posters, they should delete posts that are not in keeping with the purpose of the forum. After a few deletions, most posters conform to the norms of a site.

I appreciate the kind words from everyone, but I think this thread has served it's purpose. Let's close it down before it turns into something stupid.

And BTW, I wish to thank Cotuit whose time and effort made the CT forums possible in the first place. And I am very happy that HartfordTycoon has agreed to help us with the operation of UrbanPlanet.org.

If you are asking I can fix you up in just a few moments. From what I have seen of some of your posts, I don't think you will be missed much.
