Call for moderators for comments: Now closed


I do not normally mind spirited discussions in our comment section, but the Android trolls recently have become tiring, derailing even completely unrelated discussions.

Of course we could make registration even more complicated, but the best solution is a large number of moderators to delete comments as soon as they appear, making the attention the trolls crave unavailable.

If you are a regular reader, hate the trolls and want to do something about it, volunteer in the comments below.  I expect to chose about 10 readers to start with, which should be enough to get on top of the problem.

Update:  Thanks for the great response.  I have chosen the following users, mainly based on the contribution they have already made to the community:

  • SteveyAyo
  • Jens Veraa
  • Adriel Dennis Mingo
  • Haikal Sykes
  • Malcolm Williams
  • rsgx
  • Just Visiting
  • WWPX
  • MarcXW

The following mods do not have enough info in their profile to be added to the console, in particular no email address.

  • Just Visiting
  • Haikal Sykes

In you could correct this in your disqus profile and mention this in this post again we can complete the process.

Everyone else should now be able to edit comments or in extremis delete comments and ban trolls if necessary.

Thanks again for everyone who applied 🙂 Its great to have such an enthusiastic community here.
