Well, maybe your gauntlet should look like this:

I hope the Top Posters list will stay updated once it finally gets working. Glad all the mods will finally be where they deserve, even though Joe is still stayin' off the list.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Lots of subliminal pleading to Joe (he doesnt like to get bothered which makes it difficult with regular pleading).

Tisk, tisk. There wasn't anything subliminal about that list of reasons for making you a mod that I sent Joe, mmm.

Part of the job is to absorb some of the stuff thrown at Joe, even the subliminal stuff.

Remember, the mods are to guard the door to Joe's study when we are all at the Beatles Bible House.

If we need a moderator and there's someone I think might be a good fit, I invite them. Normally I look for someone that nobody is likely to have a beef with, and who is likely to keep their heads when there's a storm brewing. A safe pair of hands, someone who doesn't dive headfirst into an argument or get trigger-happy with the delete key. But it's not an exact science or a democracy and not everyone gets a go. I'm not looking for any new mods so please don't submit your CVs!

After a PM to the man himself, I publicly welcome mmm to the Mod team. Finally, AG will get some help! a-hard-days-night-george-10

Love the badges, Joe. The gauntlets made it difficult to fasten the badge to my suit of armor, but now that it's on, I feel a certain...special...something (CUT THAT OUT, CUT THAT OUT). Fans of The Holy Grail understand.

Congrats, meanmistermustard! a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Congratulations all on your fancy new moderator-bling! :D

But who among you will be the first to RETURN yours in protest of British involvement in the Biafra thing and of "Cold Turkey" slipping down the charts? heart

You guys have probably talked/experimented with this, but @Joe how about a thing that alerts you to new private messages (kind of like when people mention you in posts)? Just a hunch.

You should get an email sent to the address you used to create your BB account when someone sends you a PM. The default in your profile is for you to get the email notice. Make sure you haven't turned that option off.

If you are getting the email and still want another notification, then that is a question for Joe.

I wish that when you get a message that the counter would rest to zero after looking at the message so you don't need to refresh several times.

 

I also wish that the posts were organized by the last message instead of the first

It usually takes an hour or two for my email to arrive...

@fabfouremily, thank you. Its such a great sight to see you back, hopefully its more than just a fleeting visit. 

As for doing the job well i have already deleted a 42 page thread. ahdn_paul_01 Start badly and improve - that way when you mess up again it doesnt come as such a shock to everyone.

In case anyone missed this post by Joe, here is a part of it:

Joe said

Hello everyone. The mods have been discussing a clean-up of the forum. We're concerned that it's becoming less of a Beatles forum, and more of a free-for-all with some Beatles stuff thrown in here and there.

We'll discuss it in more detail elsewhere (once we've firmed up a plan). In the meantime we'll be doing a bit of summer cleaning.

I know changes bring questions and some discomfort (i just dealt with that in how we are going to conduct our work conference next year). Joe and the mods will be thinking this all through in the next few weeks. My PM box is open for constructive thoughts if you feel like there is something you want to run past me before posting it out on the forum. No guarantees or promises about what we will end up deciding. And, of course, no favoritism will be shown. Heck, Joe and the mods aren't even all in agreement about what goes and what stays, but we are working through it.
