A member of another forum recommended some forums. I am checking them out. I feel for you as a single mod. With a background as a moderator, and with a military background, may I suggest a few rules for you to follow that will make your life as a mod more pleasant?
Don't explain or argue. Never, never, ever.
First offense just post, "That's one, read the start page."
Second offense, just post, "That's two. there won't be a third."
Third offense, just bring the hammer down, and post nothing.
IMHO, don't modify those simple rules until you have a year on the job.
That's what I say.
Time for a little law and order!
Military background, huh?
My wife's ancestors are famous for their macheteros.
