Default Yes, I am keeping my eye on you ..
Hello everybody,

As of today I have been given the priviledges to various moderating options in the "vBulletin" forum which means that I am keeping my eye on you ..

As a standard I take it you are a nice person, your intentions are good and you want some advice, help or information. You do not have to earn my respect, and I won't think less of you if you make a mistake or show your frustration.

The only thing I ask of you is to give back a little bit to the "vBulletin" forum in the form of participation in conversations; Start new conversations and respect the forum rules as set by the staff. Provide arguments in discussions and think twice before posting.

Bending of the rules is what they are made for, but be open for warning and take the hints if we give them. Please learn from your mistake (if any) and don't break the rules.

As I am now part of the taz-staff you are free to contact me with a Private Message (or make a new thread) and I will try my best to find time to assist you. (My preference for giving you vBulletin software support is through the vBulletin.com support ticket system - that way I can verify you are a licensed customer. And I am already working there, so you get the support in more detail and with more qualify; and probably a bit faster.)

Nearly daily you can find me browsing the taz forums (and play moderator) and every other day I will go through the new threads and see if any still require a post reply. Once per week I will pay specific moderator-duty attention to the active conversations. The other time I am online I will be working on my own web site, which is the vBulletin Fan web site (www.vBulletin-Fans.com). That is, if I am done with my sales/support/etc. work for Jelsoft Ltd. (www.vBulletin.com).

That all said, I think it might be appropiate to introduce myself to everybody in a bit more detail.

Hello my name is Floris Fiedeldij Dop, I am male, 28 years old (21 January 1977) and I live in the Netherlands. I am married to Martine, and we live together in an apartment (together with our cat). I like horse riding and playing guitar. In the past I've had my own web design company and trained my horses to accept, and have patience with, handicapped or sick children. My interests go to online communities (specificly powered by vBulletin) and reading fun or important information on the internet. You can find me in irc chat rooms having fun with friends and regular community members. I'm busy learning everything I am behind on, which includes PHP and MySQL. My experience with online communities is starting up and managing various-ranged-topics forums. The reason I am online so much is because I can concentrate for a few hours per day on 'work', after which I get headaches and increased nystagme (shakey eyes). I am an albino, and the bright sun light is not my best friend. As you hopefully understand I have quite some time to surf the internet.

Well, I think that is enough information for now. taz-u-l8r!

Floris-

nice to see you here (in addition to the 3 other vB-oriented places I see you).

That being said, do you have any ideas how this place can differentiate itself from vB.org, vB.com & vB.nl--what focus can we have here that establishes a unique reason for people to visit?

Well, vBulletin.com is the official support web site for custormers and the pre-sales place for future customers.

vBulletin.org is the official sister site, resource community.

vBulletinTemplates.com is another official sister site, also a resource community (to be merged with vborg if I understand them correctly)

vBulletin.nl or vBulletin-Fans.com is not an official web site, just like TAZ. But it is the vBulletin fan web site.

theadminzone.com is a web site for phpbb, ipb, ubb, vbulletin, yabb, etc .. community administrators and staff members who need help , information and a central place to chit chat about forum related things.

The sites differ themselves from eachother perfectly well I think. And TAZ will bring in more people as it is getting known by more and more admins from various boards.

Welcome Floris! I think it's great that vBulletin has a "representative" here to help us out.

Would be nice if the other software makers would do the same. Maybe someone should check into the possibility. I think that would be huge for the TAZ community.

I don't know who all here is from Jelsoft. But I do think it would be nice if we could get a "representative" from the other software makers to actively participate in the forums.
