ATTN Havaddiction

Ya know.....maybe it would help you out a bit if you told us some things about yourself and you weren't just known as the mod for the company that has "hijacked" the forum. We know you have a choc lab and that you're a mod on some other dog forums. Are you a serious dog lover? Why be the mod on a Havanese forum? Do you know anything about this breed? etc.

Just saying, maybe(and this is a large maybe) it would help people be a little more accepting

Sorry just getting back from a lunch/meeting. Ok, I am a dog lover. I don't know what defines a serious dog lover though but I do love our dog seriously.

I've been around dogs all my life pretty much.

I live in Toronto. I'm married. No children. I love photography, web designing and music. I heart Starbucks even though Tim Horton's rules the land where I live.

You won't find pics of me because I"m not big on social media (so I don't have facebook, myspace, flickr, etc.). That and the fact that we have had instances where some of our other admins on other sites have been stalked from angry users who were banned.

I love the food network. I love shows like 24, Bones, Criminal Minds, Grey's Anatomy, The Unit, Fringe, Two and a Half Men... I usually watch them as marathons on boxsets with my wife because our lives our wayyyy to busy to catch them on tv.

I'm a serious cook. I can hold my own in the kitchen.

Anything else?

Why have you become a mod here? Is it just a job? Do you know anything about Havs? Are you interested in the breed? Are you going to be open and honest and do the very best to keep this forum as it was created?

I am an admin here because it is my job to keep the tech side of things running smoothly. I don't know anything about Havs aside from what I have learned by reading some of the threads so far.

I'm by no means an expert on dogs nor do I pretend to be or intend to be.
This is why we're putting together a moderating team.

And yes, honesty and openness is what has helped our communities grow. That's how I roll.

I believe I read you will be putting a mod team together. Adminning is not really moderating though there is some overlap.
Am I correct to guess they will be chosen from current members who've been here a while and who know the ropes?
I have no doubt that will make people feel more comfortable and less "invaded."

Perhaps it would be wise for members who have been here a while to either volunteer their services or nominate someone whom they would feel would be helpful.

ETA: Ah! just read the above, re: the mod team

Yes the mod team will be chosen from here. As for the requirements, I have to give that some thought. I'll be discussing this with Melissa. That will be all detailed in another thread.

I'm sure that will help ease some worries - to know they are in safe, familiar hands.
