POLL DESCRIPTION

Jay Arnold Inactive Member, in this discussion, comments:

Frankly, I'd feel better if you removed yourself as the editor and take the role of publisher and take 2-3 moderators on to do the dirty work.

We've polled the idea of using volunteer moderators before, and my impression was that the TMP community thought that volunteer moderators could be more trouble than they were worth, adding another layer of "politics" to the site.

On the other hand, it's now getting to the point where it might be financially feasible to actually hire more TMP staff. Of course, more staff means more time spent training and organizing, more admin tools to add to the website code, and new people for the TMP community to adjust to.

I'm interested in your feedback.
