I also suspect we need to boost this site's popularity as well.

If there was a simple way to get those members come to here to do their thing.

Keep uploading full sets to newsgroups and romwhores like myself will soon start coming.

Might I suggest also uploading to alt.binaries.emulators.misc too.

Also for some reason when I saw romsheperd I thought it was the site that sold dvds, maybe a little read me with your uploads saying what you are about is in order?

I see romshare.net and romshare.com are both parked..... might be worth looking at them if they dont get re-registered.

@DJ12. If I thought there was any mileage (ie benefit to ROM Shepherd and it's members) in uploading anything and everything shared here to usenet then I would be doing it myself right now. Personally, I think usenet is full of leechers and hit-and-runners.... not the type of people I'd be wanting to attract here to be honest!

If anyone can convince me to post to usenet then I'm happy to oblige!

Someone is uploading stuff on your behalf, so why not use it.

Any publicity is good publicity and all that.

Yeah, I agree and if anyone here wants to upload to usenet using ROM Shepherd as part of the subject that's fine..... I just dont think it's the way to drive potential new members (friendly, helpful, committed) to the site.

It's EvilEd uploading stuff ;-) He's a top bloke!

A vague description of the Mod Job would be a good thing :)

 ???
just an observation, an opinion and in NO WAY to be taken as an application! (there's some sleepers present but more could be helpful)
first off, huge respect to ANY/all level headed nuke wielders doing their parts to keep the community alive by direction and assistance (with contribution) the non-tw*t way!
i'm a moderator at XBOX-HQ but not by choice, not at all...
frankly, the idea gets on my nerves, i'm a gamer, not the gestapo.
my reasons for accepting (residing) is because of WHO approached me and the place itself, i feel an obligation to him/the place to assist where possible (as he single handedly recovered many of my xbox's on my whims) and i can safely say, there's NO FUN AT ALL. it sucks the f*ckin energy out the room but i do it because it's my nature...can't leave a question unanswered if i'm able to answer it! (i was doing that anyway as a normal user) there is a certain satisfaction seeing a problem getting swift resolution!  :D (and in many cases, gratitude from new and old alike)
making the hard call also sucks arse but since my time there in staff capacity, i've only done it once, not proud of it at all!
at least the work load wasn't completely off it's tits!
to those thinking "board/site moderation" is a barrel of laughs, THINK AGAIN!
it's a responsibility....
if you're about to think there's "power and glory" involved, you're the WRONG CHOICE!
there's NO power (or pay) it's all 1's and 0's and can easily be revoked as quickly as it was given!
......
i was chosen because i didn't want the job but i couldn't let my friend down!
as i look back on it, it was NEVER a bad decision on my part, i only hope i can live up to the USERBASE expectation and do my friend proud...
so far so good!  8)
(i'll NOT moderate any other site AGAIN! as a staff member, you have to constantly tread on eggshells making sure no wrong moves are taken and it's difficult meeting the level of the "user" as i can't communicate with them as such, just as a servant! will stand my ground if pushed but i'd sooner tear them a new arse in thread as opposed to use "buttons" that got added to my profile. staff that easily ban or scrub threads/posts on a PMT whim are not unheard of but they get routed just as quick and order is restored. good and bad in all hierarchies it seems?! is it worth the trouble? only you can decide that! if it isn't then prepared to be shanghai'd)
......
to all staffs onsite...
appreciate all the assistance offered as well as the friendliness here.
if you can let a GRELBIE like me onsite and tracker, that speaks VOLUMES right there! (for the better obviously)
keep up the good work, i'll be sticking around for as long as possible!  ;D
wasting time online, when i could be getting wasted and playing games...:(
