If you would like another English-speaking moderator I would be happy to help. Those of you who would be likely to accept/reject such an application will know which areas I tend to post in: programming, networking, multiplexing, and electronics.

Thanks everyone. When I connect in the mornings there has usually been a lot of activity overnight.  But yes, in Australia we probably cover different times than Europe or the USA. No doubt there is quite a bit of overlap. Spammers are usually dealt with before I get to them. smiley-razz

i'd like to moderate the italian section if/when sub-forums will be added as you'll need help moving old topics in the right section.

i'm quite free as i'm a student and the italian section is the one i follow most (i rarely see other forums).

off course i agree with terms

thanks for reading  smiley-razz

My name i Justin i am from <--- Australia, i would like to do some casual moderation. I have seen hijacked topics, double posting, posting in wrong areas & some general forum misdemeanors.

I usually only have 2-3 days spare.

I notice you have not used Report to Moderator.  That may be a good first step.

Ah, yes.  So you have.  Thank you.

I wonder why you reported this post... http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=173138.msg1285902#msg1285902  You posed the question, "Where does this belong?"  The forum section is described as, "Controlling big heavy things that move, need high voltages, high current, or both".  @costy35 demonstrates how to control the direction and speed of a mixer motor; which is "a thing that moves" and "needs both high voltage and high current".  He uses a pair of BT138 triacs to control the motor.  I believe the BT138 could be connected directly to an Arduino.  (I am certainly no expert in triacs so that should be confirmed before trying it.)

In other words, @costy35 demonstrates how a cheap high-torque variable speed motor could be controlled by an Arduino with a pair of cheap triacs.  Seems on-topic to me.

Any opportunities for apprentice moderators? I have quite a bit of time on my hands at the moment (unfortunately!) and would relish the task of being a spam squasher! I promise not to get too enthusiastic!

Hi there -

I just had a look at a post entitled "Unwanted stepper motor action " to see if there was anything on there that would help with a bit of a glitch I'm having.

I came away feeling a little shocked at the offensive attitude displayed by "PaulS" and feel that it needs moderating.Is there a reporting mechanism I can use, or will this post have a positive result?

Many thanks - R. Murphy

A link to the post would be helpful.

Every single post has a "report to moderator" control, just down there, on the right.

Here it is: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=218912.0

I can see why Paul reacted to the convoluted int/float conversion
but I think he way over reacted. And the code formatting is not a big deal at all
