Somewhere over the rainbow
Please join me in welcoming two new moderators to our ranks. These volunteers, who are experienced members of our community, will assist users, enforce forum rules, and help us set site policies.

Our new moderators:

SandboxGeneral, who joined MacRumors in 2010 and lives in Michigan.

stridemat, who joined MacRumors in 2008 and lives in the UK.

The goals of the administrators and moderators is to keep the forums enjoyable and useful for both forum members and site visitors. Enforcement of the rules is based on twin goals of consistency and fairness.

We're glad that these two outstanding forum members, whose helpfulness over the years you may already have noticed, agreed to join our moderation team and continue their service to other users in an official role. We are grateful to all of our moderators for their assistance to the site and to their fellow members and for accepting so much responsibility on your behalf.

Welcome, new moderators! :)


The selection process

The selection of moderators is a slow, careful process. We start with recommendations from the current moderators, looking for users with the right personality and instincts: helpful, friendly, rational, fair, those whose participation has consistently been a benefit to their fellow forum members. These we choose excel in many ways and are well-suited for the role we ask them to take as moderators.

You can find the full list of administrators and moderators on the Forum Leaders page.

Thanks, although since I don't drink, the beer may work to your disadvantage. :p

Unless you're polite and drink one as a social gesture. Then a single one may work well to his advantage!

I don't drink much myself either though... I bought a 6 pack about 5 months back and have only drank 2 so far. I end up thinking "Hrm do I like beer?" *drink one* Nope!... repeat process every few months.

Welcome to the team!

This is a good time to thank our entire moderation team for their dedicated work. Even though they are volunteers they spend countless hours helping us make policy decisions and investigating reported posts. As we welcome SandboxGeneral and stridemat to the team we acknowledge once again how much we depend on our moderators to help the forums provide the highest value to our forum members and site visitors.
