Exciting News for ALL Members - A New Direction for pipTalk Forums

Have you ever wondered about these Forums?  Have you ever pondered what it is, that keeps you coming back each day to what many of us regard as our "home away from home"?  These forums aren't really about the Internet they're not about software and features, and they're only peripherally about poetry. In truth, these forums are about people. They are about "you".

Learning. Writing. Doing. People helping people. Not because they have to, not because there's something in it for them, but rather because it's an enjoyable and rewarding experience in each of our lives and it simply feels like the "right" thing to do. Helping and sharing with other people brings with it, a unique sense of satisfaction, an energy rarely found in a world of greed and ambition. People helping people.

This week, pipTalk launches a pilot program we've dubbed "Deputy Moderators".

In essence, this program offers any qualified Member the opportunity to volunteer for a two-week tour of duty as a Moderator within their forum of choice, with all the duties and abilities of a Senior Moderator. The Deputy Moderators will meet in their own closed forum, where they can discuss forum issues and find solutions to those issues, where they can learn and help each other. People helping people.

We are testing this project first in Teen, with the hopes of later expanding it into our other busy forums. If you are an active participant of the Teen forum and would like to help launch this program, and learn more about the behind-the-scenes activities that sculpt Passions into the wonderful environment you participate in daily, we urge you to check out the following link:
http://piptalk.com/main/deputies.cgi

This will provide you with more information, a schedule of vacancies, and the application form itself. If you have any questions, please respond to this thread or write me at kit@netpoets.com and we'll try to find answers together. The success of this project depends on "you"!

People helping people.  That's what pipTalk Forums are all about!

This is one of the best new programs we've piloted here at Passions. Members who've had a yearning to try out moderating will finally have that chance... an opportunity to find out first hand whether it's right for them...

... and we get some extra help in the process... AWESOME!!!....

Looking forward to all this!!


I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily
