Thanks Young again - you mean email them?
I'm not knocking the system - I'm trying to find out what it is/how it works.
Thanks Dbno - so are you the Wikivorce Team or are there others?

Maggie,

I meant e-mail and/or pm, but you have your answer; one man.

Maggie, please look at Angel's latest blog to see just one example this morning of what this one man has facillitated - just one example .....



Please EVERYONE,

This man is human, like us all, he has to work, he has to eat, he has to sleep, he has worries and insecurities too and he does need help to keep this site going and (most probably) to keep himself sane!

I can see that he is reluctant to load others with his Cross but Downbutnotout has mentioned volunteers. He is probably too shy to ask explicitly so I am barging my way past him to the fore ......

Are there any people out there who are willing to help this site as Moderators?

YA - nothing moderate about me I'm afraid - for anyone better suited- what does moderating involve?

To be honest guys......moderating on wiki is a pleasure.

Wiki is a lovely community and largely self moderating.

99% of posts are no problem at all, and the 1% are just when peeps get (understandably) a bit frustrated during this difficult time....or for example put their kids names in a post without thinking etc etc.

People can help by.....

1) Answering other peeps Qs when they know the answer.

2) Sending a PM to Wikivorce Team if they see a post that needs editing cos it has..
- swearing
- too much personal detail
- contains a personal dig at another wiki peep
- commercial links
- is a sales pitch
- is a scam

That would be very helpful.

If someone wants to volunteer to help moderate one of the forums then the task basically entails responding to alert emails (very infrequent) from other wiki peeps. I wouldnt expect you to read all the threads yourself - I certainly dont.

dbna said People can help by.....

I think for me that's the main thing that's changed since Wikivorce "went legal" - we've got an in-house lawyer. Should ordinary members attempt to answer legal questions when if it was left as an unanswered question chances are they'd get an answer from a family law barrister?
