A little more information about this...

Most forums that I've used pick moderators carefully.

It needs to be people who spend a lot of time on the forum, and also who have been very non-confrontational in threads already and maybe even have tried to pour oil on the waters of arguments already.

This would involve lots of work for RW's paid staff at first, but as time goes on, the volunteers will pick more moderators. Perhaps RW would be prepared to give them some freebies as a sweetner (must be plenty of goodies hanging round the office that have been sent to you for review).

Above post is deliberate. It's more of a response than we've had isn't it?

It seems a good idea to me. Nobody is being forced to do it and it aids the community as a whole. Not bothered whether they have badges or not.

Bit of a fuss created over nothing   I've worked with many sites and communities over the years and have never received a penny for it. I volunteer to give something back to sites I use a lot. Spam is a total pain in the ass for staff of any site,especially as many spam accounts post normally for a while before spamming,or they quote posts and hide links inside a single letter.

I can't see the chosen four doing much different in that respect. Good decision by RW HQ or whatever it is

Maybe so TN - but once more RW appear to have asked for support and/or involvement from the forum, got it in terms of feedback and generous offers of time and effort from some, and then cleared off and left everyone to it.

I would still like a reply to my questions, as it was suggested that there may be some feedback from RW.  I accept that I wont get a personal reply to the email I sent but to not come back on to the thread where you asked for input is just plain rude.
