    I figured this is best discussed off the Groundspeak Forums. As the person who will not only have to work extremely closely with, but as anyone I recommend to Groundspeak will have a major affect on the UK. I'm asking for serious suggestions for nominations to be considered to become one of the New UK Geocache Reviewers. Please Only list one person per post with you reasons why you feel they would make a good candidate.

    I will take all names suggested and discus them with Dave-Eckington and Peter-Lactodorum. Once I have a list of suitable candidates, I will submit the names to Groundspeak for their consideration. Any person who gets past this stage will then be put before before the World Reviewer Community for their opinions. Any candidate who gets past this stage and receives Groundspeak's final approval, will receive a confidential approach asking them to consider accepting the request to become one of the UK Reviewers.

    As you can see from the above, the selection process is not a simple one, as such I will not reveal the names of any candidates in the selection process, and will not announce the chosen person(s) until they have accepted the request [even then all I will reveal will be their chosen Reviewer Account name, leaving them the decision as to whether to reveal their Identity to them.

    If you have any objections to a particular person, again please make one post keeping it factual and above all non attacking or flaming.

    I will not hesitate to request the GAGB Committee that posts which make any sort of attack or flame is removed from this topic.

    As to why I have posted this request on here. On Groundspeaks UK Forum I have the responsibility of Moderating that Forum. This could lead to claims that I am unfairly weighting peoples opinions. On here I am just a ordinary member. I also intend discussing all names of candidates with Dave and Peter so as to obtain a balanced opinion on every person considered.

    Have you read my post in The Other Place where I do a bit of self-promotion? :huh:

    Read this first!

    Having second thoughts now? :P

    I think I'll stick to tea trolley provisioning, it's more my forté. :coffee:

    I'd agree with the MrsB nominations. She's very popular... kind, generous, supportive and fair.. and a keen cacher to boot. I think she'd be ideal for the job

    More than that she's Cornish.

    well this depends on 2 issues - if the moderation/approval system stays the way it is I don't believe I hate anyone enough to give them such a poisoned chalice :halo: .

    If however the role was split then I can see a few people that I would like to see involved.

    There are people outside of the Forum who would be great for cache approval so people like Happy Landings would work for me.

    I also would need to know the volume of work I am suggesting people carry out. if we could get a team of approvers to make the job manageable I am sure a lot of us would volunteer but if it means 100 odd approvals a week and monitor the forum - forget it

    Mrs Blorenge :coffee: would be great on the Forums no doubt :cheers:

    Mind you the process is pretty daunting who is the World Reviewer Community for instance and how do they get the basis for Judgement? Are we being watched to be sacrificed on the alter of Groundspeak!!!

    I'll try and answer as many questions as possible. Subject to Groundspeaks approval as they have the final say. I would like to bring in 3 persons to cover the territory covered By Dave and Peter. which would reduce the work load some what. The weekend usually being the busiest period.


    Initially they will be reviewing only, and adding the Moderating of the forum is something which will be discussed at a future time.

    As for mention of Happy Landins, I won't be considering them due to the fact that they have issues which I'm aware off,which preclude them at the present time [sorry as they haven't made this public, I'm not able to]

    The Reviewer community get to input their opinions on candidates, as who ever successful will have to be able to work closely with the Reviewer Community and for the community to feel able to work closely with them [with several Reviewers remaining in the closet regarding their actual Identity, they have to feel comfortable that this will remain private. Even if they had a disagreement with the person]

    Hi Deci,

    Sorry to raise a "point of procedure". The Groundspeak procedure appears to be designed to be anonymous right through, including the candidate themselves until the very end of the process. I guess this is for various reasons but probably includes:

    a) giving the candidate a better chance of remaining anonymous afterwards, if that is what they wish, and
    b) not causing offence to a candidate who is rejected.

    This procedure of public nominations makes that harder to achieve. I'm not saying it's necessarily the wrong way to approach it, just that these aspects need to be considered. My apologies if you already have considered them.

    Rgds, Andy

    So you want Mrs B to be a reviewer..... I think it would be a great idea but be warned, I think she was serious about no micros in ivy and spelling mistakes in caches (I&#39;m with her on that one&#33.... but don&#39;t forget I&#39;m at work all day and would be really upset with you lot if you&#39;ve kept her SO busy that my dinner isn&#39;t ready&#33;&#33; opcorn:

    Chris - Mr B of course&#33;

    I would be very surprised if anyone who has their name put forward wants to do the job under the present circumstances.
