    Default July 17 - International 'Forum Moderators' Day

    I've often thought that the time forum moderators spend (esp with menial tasks) on their forums often goes unnoticed (maybe not so much on these forums, but you get the idea).

    I was looking on this list of international observance days and saw that 1) International Talk Like a Pirate day is included, and 2) July has hardly any observance days.

    I read the article for Pirate day to see how it took off and was added to the list, and was basically by word of mouth.

    If you like this idea, simply mention it on another forum that you belong to, until a large number of forums are aware of it. Then, on July 17 of every year, we can, um, (haven't thought this far yet...) sing the praises of these selfless people and promise not to post bad stuff (that needs moderating) for 24 hours. (Other suggestions would be appreciated).

    Feel free to post below and let me know what you think.

    I like the idea(why wouldn't I? ) but every member behaving for 24 hours would never ever ever ever happen. Lol

    To put it simply, it will be a tremendous effort and just plain lucky that no one breaks the rules for 24 hours.

    Yeah I know. The only way would be to ban everyone in advance for 24h

    That's a joke, btw.

    It's going to be a bit harder for me to promote this now with the extra badge

    Well, Diablo's an Administrator, not a Moderator, so... just kidding.
    I posted this in another location where a number of forum owners converge, so hopefully it gets a bit more notice.

    Indeed he does, but I think he just doesn't want to press any buttons incase he breaks the forum.. again.
