Another New Year, another set of resolutions. I always joked my only resolution was to not make any resolutions. Few people actually carry out their self appointed tasks. This year has seen so much happen in terms of sport and the Olympics, the British Royal Family and the unfortunately numerous tragedies. Looking at all that and more makes you realise that only you can change many of your habits and actions, so why not give it your all this year? On a personal note this is something I have…

I have had a few messages and tweets over the last week or so regarding Administrator and Moderator appointments, but I have been away so sorry if I haven’t got back to you yet! This is a subject often brought up when we talk with the users. So I have written a handy guide that will give you tips on how to go about applying and when.
When can we apply for Admin Positions? I think I missed the last set of positions!
There comes a time in every Ningmaster's life when we have to blog about something, which I do not do often, but here goes! When I was appointed as a Ningmaster, two Moderators were also appointed to help keep the chat a lovely place. However I think that it…
Well howdy there. My name is Geoffrey Cavalier, you may just know me as Cavalier, I'm one of two of the Forum Ningmasters. The other is Kathleen. She will do her introduction soon. Our job is to watch over the forums here and make sure they are safe, and that they are running smoothly. I've been fairly active in the forums for a while now and continue to do so even more so now. I love to…
I would like to be a chat ningmaster because I hang out in chat and know who does what and so forth. I have seen a far number of trolls and since I am usually on I can deal with them before they become a problem. Please consider me and make the best choice in your judgment.
I think I'd be a great Book Ningmaster since I'm always reading and love to talk about what I've read. Today I just started a challenge where I'm going to read 52 books by the end of the year, so I'd have a lot to talk about in the posts. The books on my list are anything from the Classics to Sci-Fi to Cheesy Romance, so I feel that I'll be able to post about most genres that people will like so they can go and read the books if they haven't already! When I write and talk about the books I… Continue
I've been back home now for a couple of weeks and some of you probably already know that I'm back, and while (full) recovery will most likely take a long long looooong time, I thought I'd get back to work here. Not that I wasn't back before. In the last few weeks I have discussed stuff with the other Ningmasters and I've suspended many spammers. But I suppose I'm not truly back until I announce that I'm back. So yeah, I am.… Continue
No wait. This isn't a Vlogbrothers video. Is it? -checks- Nope, it's not. This is your weekly blog post about the blogs. Kind of ironic, isn't it? A blog post about blogs. I could write an entire post about how ironic that is, but I'll spare you all of that idea.
Before I get to the blogs, I'll introduce myself briefly and tell you what I hope to do while I retain my title of blog ningmaster. As John said… Continue
So there you have it, my ningmaster application, ideally I'd like to be the Convict Ningmaster (Ningmaster from Australia, who keeps the wheels turning while others are catching some Zs), but I could easily do Chat Ningmaster (or assistant chat ningmaster), Forum Ningmaster, wikiNingmaster (I am quite well versed with media wiki practices and mark up) and even Photos Ningmaster.
Summary of points expressed in the video:
Ok, so a few days ago Ningmaster Katie was in the Nerdfighters chat, and I asked her how one becomes a Ningmaster. She said to wait for John to say they need more of them and then apply. And what happens within 24 hours of that conversation? Yes, it seems as if it were fate.
So, here is my hat to be tossed into the ring... er.. Ning.
I wish to become a Chat or Forum Ningmaster. I already far exceed the qualities needed for chat Ningmaster, William can vouch for our epic… Continue
So I didn't get round to blogging last week. It was late (GMT+2) and I was going to blog. But then news surfaced that Michael Jackson has suffered a cardiac arrest, followed some time later by the news that he had passed away. The internet came to a halt, sites crashing because of the traffic. It was a weird evening, to say the least. And blogging about pictures just didn't come to mind anymore.
How will the world manage without Michael Jackson? I… Continue
