    Learning how to post things in the correct forum would be a start.

    Occasionally, we advertise for moderators, as we have done recently. Then we select people based on their character and reputation on-forum, plus how we think they would do as a moderator.

    Without wanting to come over as sounding personal:

    1) Your use of the English language and grammar is poor
    2) You have very little experience on the forum
    3) Your knowledge of cricket is dubious at best

    1) To let you know I am 15 and everyone at this age uses something called msn language to complete sentences faster when on the computer chatting, using forums, etc.

    2) Agreed. I do have very little experience.

    3) What makes you say that. I want proof.

    1) Don't talk to me like I don't have the slightest idea what modern technology is. MSN/Text Language is called that for a reason: you use it on MSN and in text messages where speed and/or character limits are of the essence. On a forum like this it makes you look ignorant and illiterate - good presentation and punctuation makes your posts look better.

    2) Oh okay thanks for letting me know that.

    3) Come on that is my opinion, there is no such fact out there that states Bevan is one of the top five ODI batsmen in the world. Is there any other instance you could use as a proof for my lack of cricket knowledge. Please do keep in mind that all other posts, which might according to you show my lack of cricket knowledge, were written as a joke.

    How can you justify him and Richards not being ahead of:

    Inzi
    Jayasuria
    Ganguly/Gilchrist
    Ponting

    Insane!

    Haha snap.

    Yeah Turbinator, "I never learnt to spell because of MSN and mobile phones" probably wouldn't fly at a job and I really doubt it's much of an excuse for anything.

    If you work for a newspaper and you have to type up an article, would you use MSN language? Being a mod is a job and you have to be qualified for it.

    No No, you guys don't understand, it's not that I CAN'T write proper english, it's that i thought this was a forum where MSN language would be okay to use. I mean honestly I am not going to get FIRED from this forum for writing improper english.

    Well no duh, obviously if I was a mod I would use proper english and not MSN language, but since I am not I felt it was unnecessary to.
