Is there a future for a catagory moderator per catagory, to speak for theirs as individuals and for the board as necessary. Divi up the catagories and have each person over see one!!

It's HARD work I know!!!! And not everyone WANTS to do it, but maybe it would help and reduce future issues.

JUST a suggestion~~~ Image

I like the idea but at same time it does still have the problem of issues not being addressed if that one person is not around or busy.

There are nine people on the board and I personally can’t believe that 1 person each day can’t make it out to look over the post. Not asking or implying that the board assign days, which will not work.

I watch the boards almost once a day and for most part there are only 5-10 post a day. At times hot topics get a lot more but those then are funneled to a specific spot.

Maybe as another suggestion would be create a section for asking questions directly to the board. Then there would be no doubt who is being addressed here.

Example: If I were to post a question about event set up in the general forum anyone could answer or not. Post by members of the board in this section *unless other wise stated would be taken as only an opinion of that member not a statement or representation of the board.

Now I post same question in the “Board member questions” I would expect a reply from the board with the boards view.


On a separate note:
I applaud you FuFu for being upfront with your suggestions and entering a tiff when you’re looking for seat on the board.

Edit -- duplicate words

FuFu, Thanks for the suggestion. As with all suggestions and criticsms, the board will discuss it and come to a majority vote, if not a concensus. The problem we have had in the past is that when individual board members express personal opinions or take personal actions, a few people have criticized (and continue to ad nauseum) the entire WGA Board for those words or actions. Trying to decide when something calls for an official response or when a board member can voice a personal opinion is a fine line to walk and we do the best we can,
[Note: This was all my personal opinion. Image ]

Thanks you guys!! Always important to weight each side and good to just toss out ideas. Heck.. i was not sure if that was even thought of already. LOL

Ideas may come and go, but the insight from them stays with a person, for a long long time.

Thanks for the feedback and for doing so, so gallantly ... greatly appreciate.

Side note: I don't know if a lot of people have voted or not or if they have voted FOR me or not, but I feel its important for people to get a little understanding of who I am and that I am not one to just sit back and suck my thumb LOL Tossing an idea out there isn't going to hurt anything, let alone someones choice to choose me. If anything I would hope it would help in their decision making.....ok that sounded bad. LOL NO I am NOT doing it to win votes. Just offering ideas & input is all. It's who I am!!!!
