    Moderator is kind of not nice. For my eyes it it to dominating. In the spirit of this new community we should reflect that and look for some other expressions. What do you think?

    guide or helper would be my idea.

    I always liked The Mechanic and Peacemaker :) The Diplomats? Chargé d'Affaires? Many members are or have been symposiarchs. Ooh, I have one. Wait for it:

    Plenipotentiary!

    I like the idea of Digital Sherpa or Sherpa for short. It brings back alot of travel memories for me.

    If we want to go travel themed, in addition to sherpa we could use fairly common industry terms. Purser or Chief Purser. Cabin Service Director. Travel Coordinator.

    I consider myself to have a much higher than above average command of English but plenipotentiary doesn't roll off my tongue well either.

    :D

    Remember, the "flight attendants" are here primarily for your safety. I guess that doesn't really work, but that's what came to mind.

    Cabin Service Director would be fitting for the BAEC forum [​IMG]

    Fixer? (as in helping, cleaning up others mess, keeping order)
    Expert? (This (expertise in the relevant subject) is often a main criteria when selecting mods.

    Randy should have some good ideas, after all he did appoint a vast amount of mods in his previous life.

    How about Guide or Host, followed by Concierge followed by Cabin Service Director-- a combination which plays on different aspects of travel positions? I think there are many different combinations we could use. I do agree however that moderator should be avoided.

    Really? I don't think that's necessarily true.

    I like the ideas of Red Coat or Concierge that came up in the chat yesterday.
