Dave, what exactly can I do as a moderator and how do I find out where to do it? eg Can I split one thread into two if it wanders sufficiently off-topic, even if I haven’t started it?

The split and merge buttons are at the bottom of the first thread in the post. You can just follow the prompts from there. I’d suggest playing around on the test forum if you’re unsure.

And yes, you can split a thread even if you’re not the original poster. Just be sure to use this power with discretion and only in the name of truth, justice, and the American way.

Or English way, as the case may be?

I think that Dave just picked a point in time and declared us all moderators. No one (yet) has abused this privilege (or, in fact, known how to abuse this privilege) but I might have picked an arbitrary number of posts to declare moderators.

It speaks to the make-up of this board that all can be made moderators without unleashing chaos.

Well, most of us are pretty moderate.

Some of us are pretty moderate all of the time.
All of us are pretty moderate some of the time.
But not all of us are pretty moderate all of the time.
