Your ability to see evil in everything we do is becoming legendary smiley

Uwe Federer is one of the top contributors to the forum (see http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=14713) and in particular to the italian forum. Considering that he speaks german as well as italian and english he does a pretty amazing job in multiple forums.

He requested a different username in order to be able to clearly separate his moderation activities from the times when he's just speaking for himself.

I didn't have in mind any "Knighting Ceremony" for the moderators, should we have one? smiley

Massimo, you absolutely should publicly announce new moderators. 

This serves two purposes.  First, it recognizes people for the service you're asking of them.  Second, the addition of moderators impacts the culture of forum.  It's just a fact of human society.  New leaders in any system affect the culture of the system.  So when you say, "Person X is a moderator," you are saying, "Person X is the kind of person we value here, this is the kind of society we are."  This is valuable and useful information.

Wow, am I in the wrong place!

That was an option?  Dang!  Typical of me.  A day late and a plain brown envelope short.

It's a fact.  Those who control the levers of power, like it or not, participate in setting the direction of the system.  People will look to you guys as role models for how to treat people.  This can be observed in pretty much any significant on-line community.

I think of myself more like a humble policeman.

This speaks to my first point.  Acknowledging your service to the community in a public way is a nice touch.  Since you're not actually getting any cash, it's an easy way to show appreciation for your police work.

You'd be surprised how short those levers are   smiley-grin

Almost everything I do here is pretty tongue-in-cheek, so don't expect too much leadership from this direction (I'm new to this "online community" concept)

Edit: Pondering further on the subject, the role it is less like a policeman, more like a school caretaker (or "entropy control engineers" as I believe they are now called).
Think Filch from Hogwarts, or Willie from The Simpsons. (in fact, physically, both are pretty good likenesses)

I think I might apply to moderate the moderators !

Yesterday I posted
http://www.forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=24144
Banned from official Arduino forum?

New postby joecool17 » Mon Nov 14, 2011 1:53 am
This probably isn't the right place, but it seemed like the best fit, as it has to do with my latest project. MODS: If not, please move it to the right spot.
I was apparently banned yesterday from the Arduino forum shortly after my first post. It asked about speech synthesis and singing, and included a link to one of my favorite XKCD comics where HAL replaces Dave with GLaDOS. I did nothing else, aside from filling in some profile info, and I have received no communication from the Arduino forum. I can't even access it logged out. I have been able to see it at a friend's house, and it seems my post was also deleted. Could someone post this to the Arduino forum and help me figure out what happened?



That post disappeared without explanation whatever.

Now if there is a problem with the guy OK - remove the post and tell me why
If you have fixed his problem OK tell me


Removing it without explanation is downright rude!

The user was reinstated, an explanation posted, and after a decent interval the whole thread was moved to "Garbage" "Recycle bin".

Although I am learning C as it pertains to AVR, I do have 15 plus years at the bench working with CCTV, Alarm systems, and Camera controls. I would gladly assist the forum anywhere required.
