first of all i appreciate all members here who are helping other dbas in world to save their work. Especially i can see a bunch of experts irrespective of their forum status. is that moderator status is allocated depending upon the time spent in this forum or their answers? if not it is confusing having many moderators and their status, isit possible to allocate a higher grade in moderator status and next to administrator in the forum. the reason behind this is we are about to launch a forum for our community and would like to adopt policies from here, any ideas will help me out. thanks.
