Moblog is about sharing, communicating, playing with new gadgets, and above all having fun!
We love this site so much, we decided to give up some time everyday to help manage it.

Welcome to moblog news. Your community-powered site support hub.

We are going to use this blog to publish all appointments, decisions and policy changes made between the moderation and site admin teams behind the scenes.

We really care about this community and with jc1000000's lead and the management team's agreement (Mat, Alfie & Lorifaye) we have joined together as volunteers to take on some much-needed upkeep of the site.

Our initial meeting took place last week where we discussed a number of current ongoing issues and ideas to progress the site which included actions to :

• Update the moderators list & increase access to the site moderators
• Create a good communication structure between Moblog management, moderators and mobloggers
• Clarify Moderation & Highlights policy
• Overcome subscription issues
• Investigate the use of ads on the site
• Investigate privacy controls
• Implement various marketing strategies - including promotional publications to generate incomes for the site
• Find and appoint technical troubleshooters with understanding of: Python / Django / MySQL / HTML/CSS Linux/Unix / Subversion / Image/Video processing
• Implement a 'Moblog Helpdesk'

We have created this blog as a means of explaining to you with transparency, how we are attempting to overcome current issues and develop the site further and will be posting our findings as we go along.

After pushing for changes we are also pleased to announce four familiar names into newly created roles of Community Administrator. Please say hello to 540air, Beth, Bronxelf & Nige who've agreed to take on this role and have now been granted full site administration in order to help towards general upkeep of the site.

Welcome aboard the good ship guys!

I would quite like people to know that you guys have been granted full site access - as that illustrates how far we are willing to go as a management team to be transparent and also illustrates the extent of
the partnership and co-ordination between us.

I must look like a virile beast in this photo because it's proving to be a hot add for the ladies favourite lists right now. WAAWAAWEEWAA!

nige says:

I know, I know. You are sage indeed.

540air says:

As I recall, nige is studly mcstudly :)

bethmadethis says:

What no one seems to have mentioned is HOW on EARTH Jane Doe got her avatar so BIG?

27th Aug 2009, 02:29

bronxelf says:

Ive been wondering that for about four hours.

27th Aug 2009, 03:32

bethmadethis says:

oh wait, does that mean something's broked? Should I put my admin siren on?

27th Aug 2009, 03:35

Well now. That's entertaining. I suppose we should look into that...

27th Aug 2009, 03:38

jc1000000 says:

Tbh i want one too.

27th Aug 2009, 03:42

bethmadethis says:

a siren?

27th Aug 2009, 03:43

bethmadethis says:

Also, the amazing thing about that picture of Nige is how he somehow manages to look like those 'sensitive' 80s man and baby posters whilst waving a fist of steel in the air.

27th Aug 2009, 03:50

jc1000000 says:

A big avatar pic. I've already got a siren - two settings - for nee nor nee nor type emergencies or wowowowowowow ones.

27th Aug 2009, 03:54

jc1000000 says:

It's all about the Blue Steel, beth, blue steel.

27th Aug 2009, 03:55

bethmadethis says:

you'll be after animated gifs next..

27th Aug 2009, 03:58

Caine says:

I appreciate why the shot of Nige was highlighted, but I think it was unnecessary and going too far. Just my (probably worthless) 2 cents.

27th Aug 2009, 04:14

nige says:

I never think one can never go too far when highlighting a shot of my fez

;-0 <------ Blue Steel

27th Aug 2009, 04:48

bronxelf says:

Caine- (I know you know this but for those who don't)

The photo of Nige auto-highlighted due to people faving it. No one highlighted it by hand.

27th Aug 2009, 06:48

paintist says:

queserasara says:

Late to this (as usual).

Congratulations - & a very heart felt thank you. I feel that I will not comment on the photos - other then to say Nige - great shot (he he he). Does this mean you need some sort of superhero names & outfits now?


27th Aug 2009, 08:21

bronxelf says:

Qss- well they might. I get a super villain outfit.

I've always been proud of Moblog, like a dad with a clever and charming child. This is different though, I'm proud that people as amazing as you guys care enough to do this.

27th Aug 2009, 19:17
