HELP PLEASE... Im looking for help with my site, xquad. I need quiet a
few moderators before the site lauches January 27th. Im posting the
request on this group because this is a java group and the site is java
related. Let me explain the site first and then explain what Im looking

Xquad is similar to an open source project site, but much much
different too. Usually at open source sites like sourceforge you list
your project and maybey 3 or 4 people sign up to help. Many times, the
project isnt even active for long blocks of time at once. Well, Xquad
can change that. Xquad is one team and many projects(Other than many
projects and many small teams). The idea is that Xquad will take on 4
projects at a time with people submiting their project request to be
considered and added to the upcomming projects lists. Once the project
is active(only 4 active projects at a time), then the project gets
broken down into many simple tasks that gets divided up among many
sections like input, processing and output, ect. When the task, which
do a small job, gets finished, a different section puts togheter all
the smaller sourcecodes togheter and make up the final version. This
method is so much better than the other one because it takes maybe a
few weeks to finish a small project rather than many weeks, or even

Okey, enough about the site. What im looking for are moderators that
have an intermediate knowledge in Java and can come help out at the
site at least for a 30 minutes each day. Im looking for the moderators
this early because i want to have a good number of topics in the forums
before the site actully opens to the public. The moderators will also
be responsible for checking if the source code submitted by the people
as an answer to a task will actuall work. They will also have to do a
lot of tranfering and reposting. What i mean is that for example, if
the output section relies on graphics to get a job done, they have to
copy and paste the answer to the task in the graphics section into
their own section to go with the task. The moderators will work with
one another to report on progress and ask for help. There are a lot
more stuff for them to do like being in charge on adverising, site
design, sorting through the all the project requests and much more. The
role of a Moderator is a well respected one, and you can be sure that
you would always have something to do. You can view the current site at

If you would like to be one of the moderators, just post a reply in
your introduction in the general topics section. Thank you for your
time reading this post(i know its long...but well i got a lot to say.)
and I look forward to working with you!
