Here's a description of what the mod squad (moderators) does, taken from the FAQ section of the website:

"Moderators are individuals (or groups of individuals) whose job it is to look after the running of the forums from day to day. They have the power to edit or delete posts and lock, unlock, move, delete and split topics in the forum they moderate. Generally moderators are there to prevent people going off-topic or posting abusive or offensive material."

Hope that helps! :-)

Maybe if you leave a trail of crumbs out, one of us will wander in! :roflhard:

I think of our job as being advocates for the community here. Off-topic discussions are encouraged, actually..... that's the way everyone gets to know each other better!

But, we do watch out for spammers and "hot" topics (but we even leave those alone if everyone is being respectful, which they most usually are because this place is ALL about the LUV and respect.... its pretty amazing!).

AND, we help members out with "techie" issues. And, we might move a topic to a more appropriate forum where it will get the best answers.

We make sure everyone is feeling welcome and getting their questions answered.

I hope that answered your question, ainee!

(Maybe all you really wanted to know was that "Mod Squad" is our own "fun" version of "Moderator".) :oops:

For the record, the FAQ page came with this forum software to provide general answers to general questions. I don't even know how to edit that page. :blush: Mostly it looks like good information, but if something doesn't sound exactly tailored to "our board", it's because it isn't! ;)

The actors portraying the Mod Squad were Michael Cole, Clarence Williams III and Peggy Lipton as Pete, Linc and Julie.

The Mod Squad consisted of three troubled kids who had dropped out of straight society and had had a run-in with the law. Pete had been kicked out by his wealthy Beverly Hills parents and stolen a car, Linc was raised in the Watts ghetto and was arrested in the Watts rioting; Julie was the daughter of a San Francisco prostitute who had run away from home and had been arrested in L.A. for vagrancy. All three were on probation when they were approached by Captain Adam Greer to form a special 'youth squad' to infiltrate the counter-culture and catch the adult crime-lords who preyed on the young kids, but never the kids themselves.

While the Mod Squad were "fuzz", they certainly weren't "pigs". Being from the Flower-Children era, they didn't carry guns; instead, they wore beads and hip clothing and used the slang of the day: "groovy", "keep the faith" and, most notably, "solid".

In response to this stolen article from the website aforementioned, Shandeh says, "Solid!" 8)
