More Moderators? No disrespect to any of them. I'm a social cat. Jump on board and posted away....and learned QUICKLY who I could go to for site advise. She knows who she is.
And any time I've EVER had a problem she or Lep are all over it or quick to cough up needed info.
So (1) Limit threads poolee's can see
(2) Assign points of contact to tactfully mentor our future Marines.
(3) I didn't find it (or look too hard...bad me) but maybe boldly where it can be easily located on the HOME page...a list of moderators and their specified billets. Say like Lisa is GREAT at correcting wrong posting places and keeping hot heads in check with the salty dogs. And Lep is awesome with current topics and making "POOF" happen quickly with posers. etc....
(4) I'd like to see some kind of difference in font or color of profile names when their birthdays show up on the bottom of the page. I think the daily birthday list should stay. I just never deny a friend request and some I never speak to...except when I don't over look their birthday at the bottom of the home page. Maybe even italicise their profile name as to depict a "friend" posted a thread or it's their birthday.....
Ok...I'll shut up now. Rambling.

Tiara, That's one of the problems, can't the poolees to use their rooms; like chat room. You noticed that since the Marines left the chat room the others (poolees and others) have left now. Yeah, I know what you mean about the War Room. The rules for the poolees to a certain point have been lax. Ooops! Repeating myself!!

I recently signed up at glocktalk and I saw something with their sign-up process that could work well here.
Over there when you first sign up, there was a "cool off" period between when you signed up, and when you were given access to post. I think that is a good way to get rid of some of the spammers/trolls out there looking to flame a thread/person and leave. If there's a day long or say 12hour cool off period between when a new member signs up, and when they can first post - it will deter some of them.
Another thing I saw and liked - the first post you post over there they make it subject to moderation. So, if "Joe Spammer Troll" comes here and decided he wants to spam/troll them site it would be much tougher.
I know currently there's really only Sgt Lep doing the moderation, and that might make it tough to do that. But if the site brings on a few more, that tool could be an effective way to control the idiots.

My suggested *required* fields on profile items are:
*Last name (optional or initial OK)
*Valid emaill address
*Rank at discharge from the Corps
*State of current residence
*Boot Camp location
*Platoon number or just what BN you were in
*Year entered Corps
*Year left Corps
*Duty stations (just bases OK, but units also preferred)
*Wars and conflicts you were in involved in?
*Ship date for poolees (actual shipdate, not a guesstimated one)
*Poolees valid email address
*Recruiter's name for poolees
*Recruiter's phone number for poolees
All that other stuff in ones profile could be emilinated.
I also agree with Apache....... Similar to a lot of other sites, the registration will not progress unless *required fields* are completed.
I would also add......Once *required fields* are completed, an email will be sent to verify your account.

Linda....there's already a forum for Marine Family members to post in......Open Discussion, Marine Parents, and Marine Spouse...... some post there and some post there as well as in other forums.
Taira, as for limiting what forums poolees and wannabes can see....they can't see any of the Marines Only forum.....Chesty's Hooch, Sick Bay Commandos, Boot Camp Stories, In Country, and the Political forum.

I do like those ideas. If it were my decision alone they'd be done. Hopefully they are workable, and Jerry will take them under advisement.
Keep 'em comin!
Sparkie, cute hat.
I weep for what this country is becoming, and fear for my children and grandchildren's future if any more democrats gain national office. We lose more and more freedoms every single day to creeping nannystatism and those who vote for Democrats only want to increase that. Anyone voting for a 'dem' is someone who likely wants to take everything YOU have worked for and mortgage your kids future as well.

You honestly think someone is going to take the time to actually call some poolee's recruiter's phone number? No recruiter would even discuss that kind of information due to the Privacy Act. I see no reason why the recruiter's number would be needed. No recruiter is going to take the time to verify something for an online website. Just saying.

There's never been a question in my mind that this site is successful, and being a member for a short time, I have my own opinion as to why it is as successful as it is. It's called leadership, and attention to detail.
With that said, all I asked for was an update on the ideas that have been posted. I don't believe that it would be unreasonable to ask the status.
