Are you a knowledgeable CF member that loves helping out others and have the time to back it up? Well, CF wants you! It's the New Years, and a number of forum categories now are sitting moderator free or could use additional oversight, due to the retirement of some mods. Some of the forum categories that Big Brother needs help on are:

- Perl/ CGI (http://www.codingforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=5)
- Ruby & Ruby On Rails (http://www.codingforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=44)
- Other server side languages/ issues (http://www.codingforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=9) (includes ColdFusion and Python right now)
- Computer Programming (http://www.codingforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=21)
- Computer/PC discussions (http://www.codingforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=20)
- Web Projects (http://www.codingforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=47) (includes numerous related sub forums)

As a mod you should be knowledgeable in the forum you wish to moderate, plus see yourself as mature and professional in dealing with issues between members etc.. The role of a CF mod is changing I'd say compared to a few years ago, and nowadays what's really important is that you're passionate about the forum topic in question, and love to help out members with their programming questions. A resident expert so to speak. The days of a mod's main role being dealing with spam and disputes between members are definitely on the decline.

If you fit that bill and love to contribute to CF, please let me know! We need a few good men to answer the call! You can reply here or pm me with your interest/ why you think you're up to it etc. You're not limited to the above forums when it comes to the available forums that need more men.

I noticed some time ago that my favorite category, Perl, was missing a moderator and often considered offering to fill that spot, but never did, so here I am offering. I'll let my record of postings attest to my qualifications.

I would like to point out that I dedicated my 100th post to Spook quite awhile back. That pretty much makes me a shoo-in. :D

That was just so you could run circles around the herd of members.

Ok, I've pmed all the "qualifying" members regarding their interest. I'll wait to upgrade these members all at once in the next few days. The following 3 categories still don't have any takers:

Other server side languages/ issues (includes ColdFusion and Python right now)
Computer Programming
Computer/PC discussions

So if you're a good citizen of CF, don't have a job and could use our extensive health care, free education, generous cash allowances plus hands on training that's useful where ever you go in life, pm me!

I assume you will let the existing staffers know who you are planning on promoting before you do it so that we can prepare the proper initiation rituals, right?

Dang…I wish someone would have told me or else I wouldn't have thrown out the electric cattle prodder from last year. Oh well, I'll just have to suck it up and buy a new one… :(

Obviously, I still haven't fully "indoctrinated" you yet... how many times do we have to tell you, save everything, and back it up...
