    Hey People,

    I just noticed that they are trying to get a new moderator for the Osteopathic Section. Since our current moderator for both the pre-dental and dental sections seems to be non-existent, I think it is time we also get a new moderator. Unlike what our current moderator does, we need a moderator who can take an active role in the daily topics. This means providing advice, giving valuable information, and being able to quickly de-fuse volatile and inappropriate topics. Our current moderator as far as I can tell does none of the above. So, if you people would like to have a moderator that takes an active role in the daily affairs of the pre-dental and dental sections of Student Doctor Network, then I think it is time for us to mobilize and start petitioning for a new moderator. What do you think?

    my first question, racerdude, is why?
    i mean why besides the fact that you want to be moderator?

    authority for the sake of authority is never a good thing in my book.

    You can read my reply to the same origianl post in the pre-dental forum. My opinion is that Dr. Scherf does exactly what is expected of a good moderator. He does not hog the conversations, presss his agenda, or enforce his morality. He simply helps maintain reasonable order and sanity on the dental and pre-dental forums of SDN.
