We have for a long time had the same team of moderators. But some get new jobs, others simply doesn't feel they have the time for the community anymore.
So we're looking for new members of the DUG moderators corps!
The job as a moderator could be seen very much as someone working at a gas station. You make sure that there's gas enough. Sometimes you help people getting gas on their car. And if they are stuck on the street with no gas, then you might even bring them a can of gas, so that they can drive back to the gas station. If someones tries to put diesel on instead of gas, then you might direct them to the right pump (forum). Or if their windows are dirty you might clean them (help clerify a unclear question). But most of the times, you don't need to do anything. Just smile and be happy about your fine uniform (the moderator badge on your profile)! Except if they forget to pay, then you have to remind them (to verify the right solution).
Not everyone can become a moderator. It's expected that you're are online almost every day during the week (not weekends), but of course you migth have days or weeks where you're not able to check any posts. As the moderators should be someone the other members who as very knowledgeble, then you should be able to show a "good record" of posts where you have solved members problems. Either here on DUG or on other sites or blogs.
Several of our current Dynamics MVP's have actually started their "Dynamics Carreer" as a moderator here on DUG. So if that's your future goal, then it's a good place to start.
If you would like to become a moderator, then please look at the list of forums below. If there are any of the forums you would like to become the moderators of then please let me know.
There might be one or two of the forums where we actually have a moderator, but where I mistakenly have not filled in the right name. Then also please let me know.
Give me the "NAV / Navision - Developers Forum"
You got it!
Next try with name it is Brodkorb with a "B" at the end. But otherwise OK.
Ok you got it, this time with the right name!
If you find me qualifying for the job at "gas station" named "NAV / Navision - End User Forum" - I could try... Due to recession I've less job to do and now for a month already I "live" mostly in this forum daily, even weekends. However, not in all NAV App areas I feel myself comfortable, Mfg & Relationship Mgt for example.
But it's up to you to decide - my activity history you can see...
Sure you qualify. I have seen a lot of great replies from you.
I'm setting you up right now.
Erik, give me some time to get used to this status, looks like I should read some Community Server docs first before touching anything :)
You could start reading through the posts in the Moderators forum, which you now have access to.
All the good ones are gone
I'd be happy to take on a number of the smaller volume forums e.g.
NAV / Navision - Add-On Forum
NAV / Navision - Tips & Tricks
NAV / Navision - Errors Ecetera
NAV / Navision - Technical Forum
let me know if this suits.
I would also take
