At this date, the Elders of the Shipbucket have raised MihoshiK and Porthsmouth Bill to be our new moderators.
They are, therefore given rigths to recourse your ships into charted waters if you by some means drift into currents of offtopic, ass-hattery and other customary forum misbehaviours :P
MitcheLL300 - December 10, 2009 06:28 PM (GMT)
Congatulations both of you!

Thanks guys :D I'm beginning to realise what this involves....work :( Well, it will take a while to settle in, then Captain Queeg will be investigating the missing life jackets ;)
I joke of course....I'm here to learn :)
rickdog - December 10, 2009 08:07 PM (GMT)
As Mitch said, well congratulations Mihoshik and Portsmouth Bill. B)
It`s always nice to get things more formal, since I think as many of the rest of the members, why weren`t they considered as such, in the moderators list ?, as I always thought that they actually were. :) :)
MihoshiK - December 10, 2009 08:18 PM (GMT)
Why thank you. I'll try to be an impartial judge, jury, and executioner.
And thus begins my war on overuse of smilies...
Seriously though, what Bill said. First time I've ever been made Mod, I'll have to get used to it, learn the ropes, etc.
Atalaya - December 10, 2009 09:48 PM (GMT)
Congratulations Portsmouth Bill.
MihoshiK - December 10, 2009 10:11 PM (GMT)
Didn't think I could or would do that, now?
Portsmouth Bill - December 11, 2009 08:56 AM (GMT)
Just so we all understand each other:
Now hear this:
All smiley abusers, off topic miscreants, posters in wrong sections, eco-nuts, and anyone who knows who ate the last of the icecream.....report to my cabin!!
(sound of steel balls rolling together)

I thought they already were.
Seriously I thought that's why their names were different colors. Also didn't MihoshiK start this place in the first place with Kitsune?
gollevainen - December 11, 2009 09:15 AM (GMT)
If someone wants to know reasons for moderator choises, I think the procedure was rather simple: MihoshiK and Portsmouth Bill have been with us long time....MihoshiK longer than anyone else, and Bill since the e-mail group days IRC.
Both have also made good example of caring and working on for the forum and community, and have shown substantial maturity to be able to fill the ranks.
I would like to see the system evolping so that the mods will take care of the routine procedures in keep you guys in line, and us administrator will step in only if things starts to get out of hand + be there with all the technical and rules/accepting drawings stuff.
Portsmouth Bill - December 11, 2009 11:58 AM (GMT)
Time to get serious - though I've enjoyed the 'crack'. I was 'flabergasted' to be asked, and I for one will need a learning curve to be able to serve the members; but I'm expecting Colosseum,Gollevainen and Nighthunter to stear me in the right direction. I consider it to be an honour to be asked alongside Mihoshik, and as Golly says, it will take some of the pressure off the administrators.
My motto is: if it aint broke - don't try and fix it; and essentially, the Board runs well because members rub along together and respect the aims of Shipbucket. I beleive strongly in having rules that govern us all - me included; otherwise, this Board will suffer and the good work of many will not receive the care and attention it deserves. And of course, I'm still inputting as a member, so I hope to continue with my own drawings.

Great, more people I have to keep bribing....
Seriously guys, congratulations.
ALVAMA - December 13, 2009 12:14 PM (GMT)
Does other members get PROMOTIONS as well, like be mebers become green or orange? just a question ;)
rickdog - December 23, 2009 10:33 AM (GMT)
It seems Kitsune`s appearence, came full in color, he arrived with black as the rest, and now he is orange. Maybe, this answers you`re long wait question, ALVAMA, my friend B) :) :)
gollevainen - December 23, 2009 04:57 PM (GMT)
Yeas other people will get promotions as well.

rickdog - June 4, 2010 01:06 AM (GMT)
Sorry for giving a bump to this relatively old topic, but I never realized when another distinguished member received his promotion in the Shipbucket Forum, I only got aware today viewing the List of staff here. So in order to be fair with him, let me sincerely congatulate erik_t, for having being awarded with this new absolutely justified honor as a moderator.
CHEER`S !!!!!, my friend
:D ;) B)
Colosseum - June 4, 2010 01:19 AM (GMT)
Thanks for the topic, I had forgotten to welcome him to the Admin team I had been so busy. In any event please welcome erik_t as the newest moderator. :D
vossiej - June 4, 2010 04:24 AM (GMT)
Now we have, let's see... 6 moderators right? Will there be a maximum or something of did someone else quit being a moderator?
Colosseum - June 4, 2010 04:29 AM (GMT)
I keep needing more help to manage you unruly bastards.
Portsmouth Bill - June 4, 2010 01:47 PM (GMT)
I consider having erik_t as a moderator a most sensible move by the admins. He has a good grasp of the tehchnical side of the subject; and I'm hoping he will feel inspired to advise on some of the 'interesting' contributions from members.
Meanwhile my talent for tact and diplomacy will continue :P
ALVAMA - June 4, 2010 08:20 PM (GMT)
''you unruly bastards''
Spreak for others!
ezgo394 - June 4, 2010 08:25 PM (GMT)
gollevainen - June 5, 2010 09:19 AM (GMT)
with every forum, time to time some of the other mods migth not show up and thus creates a security vaccuum that the "unruly bastards" take full advantage of. Lately (as witnessed with the AU purge) the constant flow of new members with little idea of the community itself have constrained me and Colloseum so much that we decided to need fresh pair of arms into work.
Also, moderator status meand the strongest level of trust that a member can get from the adm. so it works also as a way of "reward" some of our members.
For that case, Its "preserved" mostly to bit older and sensible chaps that have good knowledge of naval matters and have shown intress in guiding others in their drawings. Erik_T's crusade against nonsense among the USN related AU stuff has been noted warmly by us other elders.
navybrat85 - June 7, 2010 04:16 AM (GMT)
He sure slapped some sense into my thick skull a time or two in the AU/Own Designs forums. Congrats, Erik_T.
ALVAMA - June 7, 2010 03:42 PM (GMT)
What does ''Premium Members'' mean? Just curious, I know what it is in Dutch (The same) but realy no idea what the definition is.
Colosseum - June 7, 2010 04:07 PM (GMT)
It means more advanced than regular members but not as advanced as Elite Members.
ALVAMA - June 7, 2010 04:21 PM (GMT)
Oh OkÚ Thanks in that case!! :)
