Meet the Moderator at #SAPTeched 2013 Las Vegas – C’mon I dare you!

So you are coming to TechEd 2013 Las Vegas and on your personal list of 5 People I Hope to (Finally) Meet at #SAPTechEd you want to meet you were planning on tracking down that @$%#$! SCN moderator who disallowed your first blog 😥 (ok so it was really a how-to document); made you move your discussion to another space 😕 (so maybe the Workflow space is not the right forum to ask how to use SORT DESCENDING); or gave you a gentle rap over your virtual knuckles insisting you play nicely with the other SCN kiddies  honoured community members 😯 (just one dumb question too many was it???).  

Or maybe you want to give a big HUG 🙂 and a huge THANK YOU 😆 to that moderator who answered your question when no-one else would; encouraged you to blog after days/months/years of lurking on forums and thinking could I? should I? will anyone read it?; insisted that there are no dumb questions and helped you frame yours better so you got an answer to that 2 hours before go-live showstopper problem that turned your boss go from a evil pointy-haired demon 😈 to your personal guardian angel 😉 .

Good news! Here’s your big opportunity!

On Tuesday October 22 at 13:00 in the Expert Networking Lounge #7 we are holding a Moderator Meetup. /wp-content/uploads/2013/10/moderatormeetup_299257.png

This is your big chance to come down and say HI or WHY to our some of our SCN Moderators and find out:

  • What do moderators do all day?
  • What motivates them to spend so much time and passion on SCN…when they don’t get paid for their efforts? (No not even, come to think of it especially not even, SAP employees who are also moderators)
  • What does section 5 subsection 3 b) iv) of the Rules of Engagement really mean and why are the Rules of Engagement being updated?
  • Why does my content need to be moderated?
  • How do I know I’m ready to start blogging?
  • How do I get more likes/ratings for my blogs/documents?
  • What are they doing to stop the SCN Gamification options being abused?
  • What happens when you put in an Abuse report? 
  • What can I do to avoid the infamous guestification?
  • What do they look like IRL?

Or even …. how do I reach my dream of becoming a moderator myself?

The outrageously contentious topics of:

  • SCN Gamification – improving engagement or just encouraging the points monkeys?
  • Plagiarism – what really is original content anyway  …. and how should plagiarists be dealt with?
    • Direct message?! Public humiliation??!! Guestification???!!! Capital punishment????!!!! (Ok everyone just calm down now! As one of my customers said to me  “It’s just software. No-one’s supposed to die”.) 😏

may possibly come up during the discussion. This may yet be the most well-mannered all out brawl you have ever seen…

I’ll definitely be there (protective clothing and all) 😀 .

So come along and meet us – we’d love to meet you! We’ll play nice – we promise! 😎

      What does section 5 subsection 3 b) iv) of the Rules of Engagement really mean

      I wonder how many people will go to the Rules of Engagement to look that point up...I'm tempted 😉

      I highly recommend attending  - I attended back in 2010, and it was a great discussion and a great time.

      I definitely will be there!  Looking forward to  meeting you in person. In response to Colleen Hebbert, we're in the process of rewriting the Rules of Engagement. It should be much easier to understand. Look for the update in a couple of weeks.

      I don't know how I overlooked this session when I was planning my agenda; thank you for bringing it to our attention. I can't wait to get clarification/ assistance on this portion of the Rules, which lately is so frequently flouted, at least in the forum I frequent:

      Make sure that your response is not redundant and adds value to the conversation.

      Want to see you IRL (in real life) and it's a particular draw to the meetup to meet "the Dart".

      Thanks for the promotion.  I'll be wearing a tomato and egg shield (for those bringing edible weapons). 😉
