Forum Guide for New Members

1 post in this topic

Hi and welcome to the official Montreal Canadiens fan forum.

If you're new, you might be wondering why certain member names are different colours.

Below is an explanation of what those colours signify:

Administrators perform behind the scenes duties to keep the forum running smoothly. They also help moderate the forum and are active in the overall decision-making of how the forum is run.

Moderators do just that, they moderate. They are also active in the overall decision-making of how the forum is run. All questions from new members should be directed towards the moderators and they will assist you in resolving any issue that you may have. Moderators also issue friendly reminders and warnings when members break the forum rules. They also have the power to ban anyone who is disruptive, spamming or here to cause problems.

Retired jersey status is bestowed upon all ex-mods that helped make this forum what it is today. They are being recognized for all the time, effort and work that they put in.

Hall of Fame is a status that is given to only two members on an yearly basis. They are nominated and picked based on a vote from the administrators and moderating team. The vote needs to be unanimous for this selection process. While they have no moderating duties or powers, they assist the moderating team by helping all new members navigate the forum and make sure they are comfortable posting on the forum. They also provide ideas and thoughts on how to improve the forum.

Captains are members that are selected by the administrators and moderating team because they've shown leadership qualities in their posting style and calm demeanor when posting and replying. Captains basically lead by example. While it's not a rule, the majority of moderators that have been selected were captains upon their selection. Captains are also urged to provide ideas and thoughts on how to improve the forum.

Regular members also receive different ranks (titles) from frequent posts. Here is the breakdown:

Draft pick / Choix au repêchage 0

Rookie / Recrue 250

Veteran / Vétéran 500

All-Star / Super vedette 1200

MVP / Joueur par excellence 2500

Hockey Guru / Grand manitou 5000

Please note that new members can only create a thread when they've reached 100 posts. This restriction was put in place because we urge our members to post in existing threads so that the forum is less cluttered and easy to navigate. New threads can only be created when a thread for the topic that you want to discuss does not exist.

***Please note as well that red letters are reserved for the moderating team. Anyone using red letters will have their post edited followed by a friendly reminder asking to not use red letters.
