now i have an idea and i don't know if it will ever happen, but it might be worth a shot bringing it up. I belong to another forum and they have different categories of membership there are two that come to mind for LPSG. the first one is "Site Buddy" , a site buddy is pretty much a member that welcomes new members via PM and is available for chat, being a buddy, helping the new member get around the site and explaining the rules to the new member. In addition a "Site Buddy" makes all members feel welcome new and old and has Site Buddy put under their screen name in profile. also the "Site Buddy" would have all the benefits of a gold member. The second category is "Under Moderation" where if moderators feel that a member have violated the rules by posting posting inflammatory remarks or upsetting other members, the members posts are moderated before posted and during the time the member is under moderation the member can not send or receive PM's or go into chat."Under Moderation would be under their screen name. this second one would help a lot of nasty messages from being sent and maybe also prevent possible bannings. This is just an idea. What does everyone think? What do the mods think?
