    Idea for handling green pea threads..........."rookie mods"

    How about this...all new mods go through a probation period before they become full mods.....all they handle is the rookie posts(you know the ones)....then they make full mod after a certain time period or post count. Sounds like a pain in the arse, but maybe it can be a right of passage?

    I think this could work...

    Well, of course all current mods would be grandfathered in....all mods made after the concept is what I meant.

    True. But with this thread pointing straight to you as the originator of the rule, future mods wrath could be terrible.

    What a clown...We don't just make people mods out of the blue...Why would they need a probation period?

    Is the most constructive reply you could come up with bro? We're not curing cancer here man! I did mean people the were perhaps on the cusp for qualification. Not creating a mod for its sole purpose. I guess I'm not relaying my concept clearly....I thought it was the begining of a good idea.

    If it benefits the board then I'm sure they would be all for it. Unfortunately I don't see how putting a mod through an initation phase would serve any benefit. If it ain't broke why fix it, right?

    I guess since I am the "Newbie" Mod, I will take a sacrafice for the team and consider myself on probation until I reach the 100 post count..Since I get about 500 PM's and Instant Messages everyday, I think that is going to take about 10 minutes!! But anything in the name of peace!!

    I'd say if they have been made a mod then they have paid their dues. And I am sure they discuss a lot of the major decisions that will be made before action is taken. So I am sure they know where the other mods stand on issues. Point is, they know who to pick based on what that individual will mean to the board, how they can contribute, their knowledge, and experience etc. I've been on AR for awhile and we've always had the best mods. hah how is that for a$$kissing!! lol

    Peace,

    a heads up.....

    everyone thats been considered or ultimately bumped to mod status(or even vet status) has been screened as carefully as possible.
    we look at background, contributions to the board and/or members, and attitude, amongst other things.
    as far as i'm concerned, this is the probation period, this time we're in discussion amongst ourselves as to what to do. i dont think bumping someone, and then basically telling him or her that they have to fulfill "X" amount of requirements before they get "full status" is necessarily fair, to us or the person in question.
    they've already done that, or we wouldnt be considering them in the 1st place........

    peace I4L

    bro is there something wrong with the people we pick as mods? i mean look around(apart from ifl, cant beleive we made that old guy a mod) all the mods are spot on, hand picked, sure we have made mistakes however i feel the team we have now is excellent. Do you think we been here for this long, and got 20k members cos we dont know how to run things? I wonder maybe you just did one of those 5 day management courses and decided to teach everyone how to run things? but anyway if you got something to say, maybe you can send me or one of us a pm, however im quite happy with all our mods now and the way we do things, as people have said why try to reinvent the wheel?

    peace

    I don't think the original post was made to say there was a problem with any mod.. I think he made it with 100% of its intentions to solve the 148 newbie questions asked everyday that coudl be answered by reading educational threads..

    I repeat i do not think the original post was to say ANYTHING about ANY mod not being qualified or able to do the job..

    Good idea re new mods

    [QUOTE=Doc M] I guess since I am the "Newbie" Mod, I will take a sacrafice for the team and consider myself on probation until I reach the 100 post count..Since I get about 500 PM's and Instant Messages everyday, I think that is going to take about 10 minutes!! But anything in the name of peace!!


    Since when can't a doctor spell "sacrifice"? Judging by Doc M's flip and erroneous statements concerning testicular and prostate cancer in another thread, I question whether he is qualified to be a medical Mod. Has anyone actually seen his medical license? It seems odd that a physician would not know some basic facts regarding cancer and now would misspell "sacrifice".

    you think they made him a mod on a whim, why is the ability to assess knowledge on the mods part at question here, have you seen somebody led the wrong direction, what was the cause of this thread?

    yes the thread was one asking for Doc M or others to give medical advice

    Quote Originally Posted by Grant

    And in it Doc M asserted that prostate cancer could happen at any age although the person in question had seen a physician who advised him he had prostatitis. In fact 70% of prostate cancers occur in men over 65..not in young men . He further stated that testicular cancer could occur at any age although it does rarely outside the 15-40 age range. He used these fallacious arguments to respond to assertions by me that the young man in questions doctor had erroneously told him that his condition was caused by high androgen levels. Doc M never addressed this fallacy but it is in fact an error and research of the literature finds no reference to androgen levels at all but bacterial infection is the primary cause, which the physician was treating him for with an antibiotic. The course of the thread was that "doctors are always right and we should always do what they say".

    The title of that thread is "Doc M, or other medically qualified persons, I need your help".

    Whats you deal with the word erroneous? Is that the only "big" word that you know? You used it in both posts. I can understand once, but twice? Is this a word that you have just been waiting to use or something?

    It describes how I felt about the information shared and I am sorry if I was repetitive.
