    In the past, some ASF members have asked for an easier way of identifying who the site's moderators and administrators are.

    On the forum Index page (www.aussiestockforums.com/forums) you may have noticed the link 'View Forum Leaders' just above the 'Currently Active Users' section. By clicking on this you can access a full list of ASF's moderators and administrators at your convenience.

    However, to make it easier, I have changed both the look and colour of the user names of ASF's moderators and administrators. From now on you will notice that the user names of ASF's moderators are in bold and coloured a dark blue. The user name of the sole administrator (me) will also be bold and in a very fashionable red.

    Hopefully this will make it easier for all ASF members to recognise the site's moderators and administrators. :)

    Thanks Joe. This is a good initiative. This way when my own written thoughts are modified, edited or sensored by someone call Prawn I will at least know whats going on.

    Hi Kauri,

    The user name you saw was 'Forum Skin'. This is the person who is working on the new site design for ASF. He needed administrator permissions to gain access to certain forum information he needed for the new design. That's why he had a bold red user name.

    All will be revealed soon. :)

    Having the mods in bold lettering is a great idea - real easy now to click on a name (the right name) and alert him/her (are there any hers?) to spam etc. via PM ... especially if its somewhat urgent ...

    FYI clicking this [​IMG] button in the top corner of the offending post informs all mods at once...

    Thanks doc - today I did both (click the alert and sent some PMs) ... sounds like that's overkill so will just use the alert button in future ...

    G'day Joe,

    Hope that the look and feel of ASF stays true to it's roots and that we are not confused at the end of it all. I value the site content as well as the simple interface. I saw the Forum Skin user too, very witty.

    What's this Nomores!!!!??? A mod!!!!

    Congratulations - when did this take place? I've never noticed before.

    Does this mean that you will be looking for angles to close down the Essendon Supporter Support Thread?

    Cheers
