Forum Moderation

Well after being a member for five years I've been asked to become a moderator of the Non-Scifi Whining board at Spacebattles. I have to admit this will be a new thing for me. While I've been a mod at several smaller boards they were very tightly knot together groups where moderation was needed only to get rid of spammers and the occaisional troll. Spacebattles is different. By the board stats there are 1,800 active members and a large chunk of them visit the board I'm now helping to police. This means that I will be coming into contact with people who will not agree with my decisions and I will thus have to be able to explain my actions to them and any staff.

This should be an interesting experiance.
