Q What is Private Discussion Forum ? Private Discussion Forum is as the name implies; " a Private Forum." Q For 3DS Staff members & guests only?! Yes, Administrators, Staff, Moderators, & "Guests" being defined as "Forum Leaders". Q What is discussed there? Basically 3DS business. TOS Violations are recorded & discussed along w/other edit, delete, & closing of threads. It's pretty boring stuff, despite the "Famous secret tread everyone is talking about... " which was designed to inject some humor. Q How do I become a Forum Leader? First you must demonstrate that you are a person of good character, w/ a combination of qualities & attributes, that would allow you to oversee the forum w/ competency and dependability. Basically the way it works is, "We notice you!" You are recruited due to the: * Quality of your posts & answers. * Your attitude. (friendly, helpful, & genuine) * Your forum leadership & management skills. * Your loyality to 3DS. Then we discuss your profile & your potential! We might chat w/ you via PM, ICQ, or IRC to get to know you better. Then if the majority of Forum Leaders agree, with Administrator approval, you're admitted to PDF & are now "in the pool" from which mods are drawn. FAQ's Being a Moderator... P.S. Now that you understand, there's no need to email & pm the staff & administrator for questions concerning entry to PDF.
