It seems as if our current squad of moderators may not be able to handle all the spam we're getting lately. I'm considering adding two more MODS. Please make a pitch for yourself or nominate others for the position. Keep in mind these mods will be able to lock threads, delete your posts and will be trusted by me as I am not participating daily. Please be respectful of others. If you have something negative to say about a nominee please PM me and don't pick a fight here publicly. While mods are powerful, respected forum members, they don't get paid to do the job. I am extremely grateful for the service of our current, past and future mods.

squidbuellie and anrkizm95 are a couple of guys that come to mind whenever I feel I need to get some answers or help with all things Buell.
Alot of other members are very helpful but imho these two guys are top drawer!

Continued thanks to all our mods and each and every Bueller that helps one another out.

Continued thanks to all our mods and each and every Bueller that helps one another out.

squidbuellie, anrkism95

[up] My votes....


Not sure that Im liked enough to be a mod , but I am on here sometimes 12 hrs a day for at least 28 days....(I work on a drilling rig). So I have alot of free time sometimes. When I go home for 2 weeks Im not as active but still on every day at least once for just a moment.

another [up] for d_adams, glad you are interested. he is seems to be a very level headed guy. we do want someone who is on here a lot to combat spam most effectively, but if there are things in the works to limit that maybe is isnt as big of an issue. idk if dean has a lot of online time or not but i think it would be beneficial to pick someone who is.

I'm honestly not sure who all of he mods are at the moment, but I'm throwing out konarider94, squidbuellie, d_adams, and myself.

I have an idea (stolen from another forum.. silencertalk.com) they leave the "general" section blank for all the auto spammers. No one posts there and it gives the instructions. In our case buellxb would leave the "general motorcycle chat" blank to catch all this bull crap, and instead we all would post in the Buell chat or whatever you all want to name it. Just leave the name general out of the topic.

I never see spam there or in any other part of our buellxb topics like buell users, do it yourself buellers, ect....

I hope I could contribute something...

It dosent matter what area they post it still clogs the most current topic feed at the bottom of the page that most use.

Obama is gonna need a new job? Dean would be a great choice cause of his expertise on buells and tons of input ive come across in threads.

BuellyBagger
10-13-2012, 07:01 PM
Anrkizm[up] he's always been very helpful and level headed.

Wolfo[up] I've met the man himself, nice guy, never has a bad thing to say bout nebody on here and checks in often.

netty2424
10-13-2012, 07:18 PM
Anrkizm would be a good one! He's got my vote. Dean is a worthy candidate as well! And don't forget Oh9bolt! [up]

10-13-2012, 08:39 PM
I'd love to do it if given the chance. The other options mentioned (Squid, Kona, Onelogue, Freak, etc) are good too.

oh9bolt
10-13-2012, 09:38 PM
And don't forget Oh9bolt!

Thanks!! +1 rep! [up]

I am on here 24/7 basically but most people disregard what I say, and read what they want to read.

Thanks though!

I think oh9bolt and loki should duel and who ever wins is a mod

xtremelow
10-13-2012, 09:58 PM
D_Adams and anrkizm95

I will be stepping away come years end.

Brandon.. hey, just so you know, we genuinely appreciate all you've done as a moderator for BuellXB.com, been good times man :)[up]

nikfleisch
10-13-2012, 10:36 PM
Oh9 as a mod:(....he'd delete your thread if you're a known gas cap offender. Kidding seriously +1 to oh9




On another note [up] to xtremelow for being here and being a good mod with the giveaways, out of curiosity, will those be passed off? Or dead?

xtremelow
10-13-2012, 11:56 PM
I will not pursue them so it will just fade out at years end, unless buellxb wants to figure something out or sponsors do something on their own.

There is so much more time into the giveaways then what meets the eye and it has just become more work than I am willing to put forth. 2 1/2yrs of it and I am spent.

10-14-2012, 05:52 AM
since no one else has nominted anyone (jk), i will be selfish and vote myself and anrkizm95

10-14-2012, 05:55 AM
Brandon.. hey, just so you know, we genuinely appreciate all you've done as a moderator for BuellXB.com, been good times man[up][up] imo buellxb would not have grown to become what it is without your influence.

Brandon,hate to see you and Sarah go, you guys have done a lot for this site and our best wishes go with you both. As for the rest of you,I don,t see a bad one there and i would add RT and D- Adams to the list.whoever get,s it has a lot to live up to.

I agree. Big [up][up][up] to Brandon. You have done this board proud and I wish you all the best going forward.

As far as nominations, I would like to put my .02 in for oh9bolt, D_adams, Kuntreeboy, anrkizm and myself

10-14-2012, 08:01 AM
I'm not 100% sure how much time it will entail but I'd be glad to help if you guys want me to. I'm certainly on here enough...Some tell me it's too much! :p

I agree with the appreciation of xtremelow and others! You've made for a great place for us all to hang out! [up]

buellxb
10-14-2012, 08:02 AM
Yes, Brandon/Xtreme has been an amazing contributor in so many ways, visible and behind the scenes. Where would we be today without the porn thread I had to take down? It was the most popular thread ever and was only removed because Google made me. Then there's the giveaways, the clothing he managed, texting me when I wasn't paying attention and something important was going down, etc. etc. etc. That's why he's in our banner. Cheers to that man and his woman!

Please ignore the new forum MODs thread. It's old. I'm still taking nominations. Great group here so far!

I'd like to nominate anyone whom's Buell runs 180+ and any of those awesome poster who can help me with the new windows 9 password. :D

P.S. and the Couch purse guy and the golf guy [up]

d_adams
10-15-2012, 05:03 AM
Man, mine won't go over 174.


:( :( :(


Guess that would put me out of the running if that's the case.

Edit; password for windows 9 and up is OU812 I think.

xtremelow
10-15-2012, 01:19 PM
Appreciate all respect guys, it all started with curiosity and then into helping everyone out as much as possible.

My hobbies have moved to other aspects and with it all of my time. I still have a giveaway next month sponsored by 5-0dro so one more to go unless it is taken up by someone else.

onelogue
10-15-2012, 02:42 PM
i nominate onelogue...
Thanks Tad!!

I've wanted to be a mod for years so I'm totally down. However if he is only choosing 2 MODS than Squidbuellie and Anrkizm95 are more addicted to the site lately ;)

+1 more for 09bolt

buellxb
10-15-2012, 08:25 PM
Tons of great recommendations all! I could easily make the case for most if not all of the nominations. After reviewing the public posts and dozens of PMs the top two recommendations so far are...

Anrkizm95
Squidbuellie

Third place would be a much tougher decision. I've had some really strong, supportive PM recommendations for some of the other nominees. Trust me when I say you all clearly have fans on this forum.

My decision is not final. Please continue to send recommendations both publicly and via PM. If a clear 3rd place nominee emerges I could be swayed to promote 3 MODs. Currently I feel like I would offend others with any 3rd selection.

#1 Anrkizm95

What he has done for this site with the picture challenge alone is enough to get my nomination and also to try and persuade buellxb/sponsors to become a part of the prize that he contributes himself. Not to mention how helpful he is and the vast knowledge he has. His profile is overwhelmed with great info also.

#2 oh9bolt

Seems to be on a lot and very helpful also. (sorry I don't have more to say about you but hey you got my vote)

noone1569
10-16-2012, 05:38 AM
I'm recommending oh9bolt because he is a very no-nonsense guy, very knowledgeable, on here constantly and consistently and very passionate about Buells. He embodies the good of BuellXB and would represent very well.

EricZ
10-16-2012, 05:43 AM
I'd be happy to take a mod status.

Any of the other suggested members sound like great choices too!

[up] to both

anrkizm95

Squidbuellie

They would both make great mods.

Alright Buellxb, I've got a solution to this Mod Selection. Let's have the candidates settle it the old fashioned way...........MOD-OFF!

He who has the best dance move wins! Here's Oh9bolts submission from a trip to Vegas last year!

HUGE apology to all members. I had no idea exactly how much spam was building up on the forum. I just spend 3 very efficient hours banning and deleting spam. I will get these mods in place and see what else I can do. Thank you for your patience.
