Erm, folks 'moderating' a GB is as easy or as complex as you wish it to be.

If you want separate categories for any and every permutation of medium, do so,
if you want to keep it simple and have all media in one bucket, you can do that as
well. The setup is up to the moderator.

Realistically there aint' much innit and the time requirement is minimal, you
don't have to be watching all-day, every-day.

I nominate Weaver.  ;)

If Weaver doesn't want to do it I'll do it.  Unless y'all have any objections... ;)

I'm not opposed to doing it. Couple of questions:

1. I'm not a "moderator" in the helping-to-run-the-site sense of the word. Would I need to be?

2. Who came up with the idea for the Book/Film GB? It would be nice to know what their concept was before trying to implement it.

Note that I am definately NOT taking part: lot of practical stuff to do now so that more and better model making can happen in the future.

Thanks guys - I can help you if you need.  As for the originator, I believe that there were multiple originators - I combined these into one coherent theme.

As for needing to be a "moderator", that is taken care of  when we set up the GB itself.

Well, I guess multi-mods'll work ... I was hoping for a winner-takes-all-deathmatch.  :icon_punal:

Can we move this thread to the appropriate sub-forum as the "inspirations" thread please?
