It does make them official... technically.. but your not getting what I meant..

I'm thinking more of teams or members, mods whatever you want them to be that you allocate to a certain area(doesn't mean they cant roam the forums) but they can keep the area lively and talking and whatever... this is top of my head..

Just so we always have someone updating the threads, news, interesting stuff etc.. Might draw more people in.

We had dedicated mods at one point but there isn't enough activity for that anymore.

He wasn't speaking in terms of mods, he was talking about regular users who get enough respect (by thanks I guess) who get a badge for being regular helpers or know what they're talking about in a certain area. Like for instance, I would get a badge for the hardware area because that is my specialty.

Yes I said mods because TF has no other dedicated teams besides mods so I thought they covered everything!! what dont you get? so what I think will be good is having teams (users, even mods, whatever) just like ive said in my posts and just like you've repeated

Forums are about community participation, imo. Updating threads and posting interesting content are the very reason for the existence of a forum as opposed to a bloggy news platform. The site team role is a supporting one in this regard. Forums are interactive - they run on the energy generated by community participation.

With the coming change we hope to have an articles page for in depth content, analysis and news and members will be able to submit content.

Tell you what we need on this forum is more females since its dominated by male testosterone. A good diversity wouldn't go a miss.

Plenty of females where I work. It's a shame they're pretty much all stuck up.
