I wanted to post in this thread: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/375803?start=100&tstart=0 in order address an easier version of the suggestion from the following post: 2. As right-clicking the tool icon of the option bar in CS5 gets the reset tool/reset all tool contextual menu, easier than going through two drop down menus to find that hidden yet useful option. But the suggestions threads is locked, nobody can post in there, and the FAQ forum is in dire need of facelift. I could work on it in my spare time, like Mathias used to do it, and as I did in the Camera Raw FAQ.

As far as I know, each forum has a Moderator (or Moderators) who control that forum

I think you need to find the Moderator for that forum, and send him/her a private message with your request

How do you know who the moderator is in a certain forum?

I have never seen a moderator in the Flash Player forum (apart from Jochem, who drops in every few months or so).

To the best of my knowledge, there has never been a moderator in the forums in Spanish. Not even in the Fair Forums:

Claudio,

I am surprised, but have to admit to not frequenting the Spanish fora. I can struggle by, if the speaker is slow, or I have time to translate on paper.

I assumed that each forum had a MOD, or "host," but that is a bald-faced assumption.

With no MOD's, I hope that you hold down the fort!

PS - to the OP, most product fora, that I do frequent have MOD's, and they determine when a thread is locked. In most, the FAQ sub-forum will almost always have locked threads. When I have needed to amend, or append, I have just sent a PM to one, but then I know who my MOD's are, so that part is easy.

PPS - maybe it would be nice if the MOD's did introduce themselves from time to time, so that everyone would know who they are, just for cases like this.

Bill, that very thread was an unlocked one to allow the suggestions to the FAQs.

Maybe should I create some in the regular fora, to avoid child/parent permissions issues.

What would be really useful would be to have an area that would list the mods/ admins to each forum, then a + button be able to see all of them, rather than the relatively useless (for a new user standpoint) "best poster" list.

I agree that perhaps a sticky, or similar, would be useful. I cannot recall seeing anything in the Profiles that defines a MOD/Host. In many cases, these folk are "Community Experts," but there are several exceptions.

I generally put " 2 & 2" together, when I see that ____ has branched a thread, moved it to a sub-forum, has locked it, etc., but that is not always the case. In one particular product forum, we are blessed with several Adobe employees, who also do some "housekeeping" from time to time, so they have a MOD console, but are not active MOD's. Some tell me that in the product forum, where they spend time, there seem to be no MOD's around, or at least visible. I know that some resent any sort of touchy-feely, or the concept of a community, but having the MOD's say hello, would not be a bad idea. We have had a few retire, and they usually stopped by to say goodbye. I am sure that there were subscribers who asked, "who was that? Were they actually a MOD here?"

In my case, the ability to PM a MOD can be very useful. Often posters will fall into the wrong forum, or especially sub-forum. As I cannot move their post to the appropriate location, I just drop a MOD a quick PM, with my suggestion for where the poster would get the most "eyes" and also quicker help. These are usually new posters, who do not read the little messages at the top of, say a FAQ sub-forum, or post with an urgent problem to the Tips & Tricks sub-forum, which is basically a repository for articles on how to do things regarding video-editing, and not really a Q & A forum. Also, I am one of the only people, who go there, as I link to the various articles. Most folk never even see that sub-forum's main page, and only the linked article. A question could well languish for months, before someone stumbled upon it - there, all a MOD needs to do is move the post out to the main forum to get views.

I like your idea, but would anticipate a bit of push-back from some. You get MY vote...

Glad that Adobe Admin got things sorted out for you.

There is something wrong with that thread that has nothing to do with a lock from a moderator / administrator. Just start a new one.
