Buddhists in recovery
« on: April 02, 2010, 01:17:46 pm »
I think a subforum under everyday life for Buddhists in recovery would be nice. I've found there is quite a few Buddhists in 12 step groups and the like.

I think that is a great idea. 0gyen Chodzom or Wonky, would you do the honors? I'd be happy to mod.

On a side note, what are the requirements if I was interested in moderating that section of the forums?

LostMonk- all of the moderators here at FreeSangha had to participate in intensive physical and psychological testing. First Wonky uses advanced psychometrics to determine if a potential candidate has any of the character traits of an axe murderer, which would disqualify a person. Then 0gyen tests to ensure the potential candidate can complete 108 sets of 108 prostrations. If the candidate completes this task, then one must demonstrate that they can either bend spoons with their mind or sit in full lotus for 7 days without interruption.  :lmfao:

Well, my avatar is of myself in deep meditation. Is that not good enough?

If there is a specific board you are interested in moderating, you can post in Moderator Contact or you can PM one of our two Global Moderators (Caz or Matt).

Let me know if I can answer any other questions.

Matt and Caz- as that sub-forum is currently moderated by me, I just wanted to say I am totally in favor. Just look at his avatar, the guy is GOOD.
