Are we allowed to know who the mods are?
 
I suspect the numbered mod names were meant to avoid any sense of cliques, but for me personally it ends up feeling like a voice from above is announcing to us how it will be - somewhat 1984-ish, rather than members of the community who are making decisions and rulings.

I'm not sure this makes total sense as I don't know exactly how to explain how having threads locked/deleted/etc. by a number instead of a person makes it feel different. Anyone else feel the same?

I prefer the numbers so that the actual person won't get ganged up on under her board name.

I assumed that the numbered mod names were meant to avoid the kind of situation that RCC is talking about. I think it's a good idea.

This.

I was the one that suggested the numbered names. I had been speaking with Gretchen about some things and suggested that it might help with the mods who post on the boards as both "real" people and moderators. It can be hard to be objective when your also discussing recipes, your kids, jobs, relationships, etc with people every day.

Yup the numbered mod names offer a layer of protection against internet beef! :argue: lol

Forum moderation is a tough job and they're volunteering their time to uphold a set of rules and guidelines that NaturallyCurly.com (not them personally!) has set up.

Also allows them to wear the hat of moderator, and then take it off to wear the hat of a regular CurlTalker with opinions, hair tips and questions just like everyone else.

Eve - I'm going to send you a PM about why I specifically asked...
