    Members of the Membership Council don't have moderator powers on the site but they serve as a kind of advisory board to Sean and the moderators. If they see a problem that the moderators haven't noticed or something that could be improved, they can bring it to our attention in a few different ways (though these are things that anyone on the site could do as well). Importantly, they serve as a sounding board on the rare occasion when we have some particularly difficult membership issue that would be inappropriate to air in the public forums.

    The council was appointed by Sean and the moderators team.

    The original announcement is here:

    Using film since before it was hip.

    Wow, whats wrong with us? The council has shown itself to be very good and not an echo chamber, but elections for moderator, and council would seem to be an excellent way to go.

    Since this is Sean's site, and he is spending the money to run it, I don't necessarily think we need to have elections. (Would we get very useful participation? Many people on here don't have the time or the familiarity with the members to decide who would best be a moderator or councillor.)

    Sean seems open-minded and if there were an issue with selection of people for these positions, I am sure he would listen to constructive criticism.

    I think the community works very well with the current moderators and council members; therefore I see no reason to make any changes in the foreseeable future unless someone wants out.

    Hold on folks, I'm not trying to start a revolution. Maybe I made assumptions about the term 'council'. It looks more like our wonderful house of lords and if it works why change it?

    One minor point, Photojim, I pay Sean to run this site, as do many others.

    I shop at Wal-Mart, markbb, but I don't get a vote on their Board of Directors.

    I also think the moderators and council that Sean has chosen have done an excellent job of keeping the site going and dealing with difficult issues.
