Moderation is a heck of a task.  You do not want to discourage new posters, nor can you just let someone come in and start being a troll.  I often pay careful attention to new posters, especially if they start off by disagreeing with a lot of points.  Not because they are disagreeing, but because it can be an indicator they are just out for attention and like to get it by arguing.  Not much of that since the registration process went into effect.

Oh, I also noted that Gerry had to go to a registration to post option.  Probably the same annoying spammers who caused my change.  I swear the world would be better if people would just do what they knew was right, rather than what they thought they should be able to do (and I think they often know the difference).

I had the unfortunate task of moderating a board, or perhaps mothering would be a better word as I was quite occupied with trying to keep content fresh in its early stages of growing (if members were not posting, I would start posting more to jumpstart them), where I was the only one moderating, promoting, and modifying the board. With a moderator, at least in the limited experience I have had, I would look at someone needing to be pretty even tempered if not outright tolerant, while at the same time not being afraid to step in when someone gets out of line (and certainly not giving in to someone just to keep them calm as I have seen happen on two boards).

One thing I certainly admire about you and the mods on this board is that you all have a lot of experience in recognizing the behavior of posters to be able to put a stop to a problem before it gets out of hand or to recognize when a presumed problem is really not that big of a deal (such as when Dunners b***hes us out every couple of months for not posting strictly about bad movies, then stops and converses with us like normal).

I will certainly come up against a few walls, especially with so many boards. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you, thank you. For my next act...serving haggis to a blindfolded East Indian movie producer!

This board is singularly the best I've ever seen.  I had one other board I frequented, but gave up last year about a month before the election.  It got to where EVERYTHING was about politics, and one (relatively) small group would dominate every discussion, name-call and generally be butt-heads.  The mods were loathe to ban anyone who obeyed the rules (pretty much spamming was the only thing not allowed, and they TRIED to keep it family friendly as some people did browse with their kids).

It's a shame, because by and large it was a GREAT group of people.  I check out their Monday/Saturday IRC chats from time to time, but mostly just communicate with a few I know by email (or actually know).  It's a great resource for info, but I just cannot take it.

Things I like about BadMovies.org forum (most have been said already):

** There is probably no other site on the planet with the collective knowledge of b movies in particular and perhaps movies in general as the regular posters here (myself most emphatically excluded; I only THOUGHT I knew a bit about b-movies when I started browsing Andrew's site in 1999).

** We can fuss at each other a bit, like any family, but in the end we act decent to each other.

** Most of the trouble comes from outsiders, who are VERY welcome until they prove themselves to be jerks.

** The level of humor is exactly what you'd expect from a bunch of people who like the kinds of movies many others try very hard to avoid: warped, silly and sometimes, very subtle.

** A large core group = a very active board, which has a high interest-keeping level.  If you remove the flaming and trolling from many other boards (this one has very little of either, most content is solid), what's left?  I'm of course talking only about "interest" boards, not purely informational ones (where the posts are mostly questions+answers, though there is a lot of trolling there, too).

Anyway, that's my two cents.  This is a great board, and it reminds me of the old old old dail-up BBS's I used to frequent in RTP, NC in the early 90's.  (One of my favorites was actually a Flintstones related BBS).

You pretty much summed it up for me in that post ulthar.

I had been debating it for quite a while anyway, so when the poker spammer hit me twice in one day from two different IP addresses, that was the sign o' the times as far as I was concerned.
