are at the top of the staff hierarchy. They have taken on overall responsibility for the thankless task of keeping the site running as well as it can, clearing out spam, banning bots, changing some of the settings that are open to them to create forums or subforums or change members' names on request, and they oversee the appointment of new moderators to keep staff in all the Forums. They administer and enforce the User Agreement that we all have to live by.
They get all the miscellaneous issues to deal with. It is quite a bit of work actually.
try and monitor our respective Forums to make sure everyone is playing nice. We can also deal with spam and bots, trolls and mischief-makers. We enforce the User Agreement and the Forum Rules, as needed (although most Acrylics Forum members are very respectful) and we try to keep the Forum running by organizing the monthly Challenge, opening the new Chat thread each month, closing old threads, tidying up double posts, etc.
are there primarily to help the members navigate the Forum, and to participate in making the Forum more fun. If there is a "problem" on a thread the guides can alert the Moderators. If it is a major issue the Mods would bring in the Admins.
Michelle is our newest Guide and she is going to be a great addition to the team!
