  1. We're recruiting! - Moderator Vacancy Due to additional requirements, Canal World is looking to recruit additional moderator(s) over next few weeks to work alongside the current team, both to grow the team and replace members who have since retired from the role. Due to the typical tasks involved, the ideal candidate will have a moderate (or better) level of computer literacy with previous experience performing forum, chat or group moderation. Previous website/forum administration experience is a big plus but not essential.

Typical tasks include: Maintaining the forums content and atmosphere Engaging with and assisting members with general and moderation related enquiries Responding to and completing post reports Reviewing content submitted for approval Merging duplicated topics and posts Moving topics and editing topic titles where appropriate Promoting healthy debate, discussion & content using the "Featured topic" tool where appropriate Removing inappropriate content and exercise disciplinary action where appropriate Removing spam and spam accounts Escalating serious or repeat incidents to forum administrators Provide input and contribute where possible towards the operation and long-term future of the forum We recognise that we have a user-base with a vast amount of knowledge and experience in all walks of life. As such, we're also interested to hear from users who may be interested in helping out in other areas of the site. - We're always open to ideas!

  2. SITE INFORMATION About the site Canal World Discussion Forums aka CWDF has been active since March 2001 since it was founded by former owner Jon. Today, it has over 20,000 members globally who contribute to lively discussions about all things canal and boat related, making it one of the largest online waterways communities. The site also has a photo gallery, a links directory, private messaging, and live chat facilities. Although predominantly UK based we have members from around the globe. Throughout its time CWDF has remained privately owned, moderated by volunteers and run by our members for our members, in 2009 the ownership of the forum was handed on to DHutch the assistant administrator at the time, who remains the owner at present. The site is operated on a not-for-profit basis and is funded entirely by voluntary donations from our loyal and valued members. So how does it work? In order to participate in discussions and use the advanced facilities such as private messaging users first need to register, this is free and all we ask is that members provide a genuine e-mail address, which will be validated as part of the registration process. Your email address will not be displayed publicly, and details will not be passed on to any other organisation or agency, and you will only receive e-mails that you elect to receive from the forum system. Members also need to agree to the forum rules and guidelines which are displayed during registration and on the forum. Once registered, you simply click on the topic that you wish to reply to, and then simply click 'add reply' to add your comments to the discussion. If you wish to start a new topic, simply click 'new topic' in the relevant forum, and follow the instructions on screen. Why should I register? In short, a free registration opens up full access the whole of the site. You will be able to: Reply to existing topics and conversations Create new topics and ask questions Access and contribute to the photo gallery Access the Private Messaging Facilities E-mail other members (where allowed by individuals) Become a part of the community, make new friends and contacts.

They have the ability to edit/close/delete posts that are disruptive and don't follow the forum rules & guidelines. They also assist in dealing with member queries and technical support issues and have admin roles such as running the sites accounts. Each member of the site staff can be identified by the blue 'Site Staff' badge next to their posts. You may view our crew members by clicking here. Who can I contact?
