      How many staff do you currently have on your forum? Do you feel it is too little or too many at the moment with the amount you have?

      I myself at the moment have 3 members of staff

      1 admin
      2 super moderators

      At the moment we are looking for another moderator which we feel will balance things out a little and help us to bring more to Chat Addicts then I feel we will have just the right amount of staff :)

      My own forum is still on the net but has not had any activity for a year or so now.

      I currently mod for one other forum.

      Just the 2 admins. Me and my friend. It's fine for a forum of our size as we're just starting out.

      Zilch I enjoy being a member more than staff as it takes all the enjoyment out of foruming.

      I have just one admin plus myself and i do admin duties too. The forum has not been as active as i wanted it to be, maybe that's in part to my admin taking off and not really coming by anymore. I wonder if it's time to get someone else for the job.

      There are two staff members at my latest forum.
      I'm the forum administrator and the other staff member ( server administrator ) is the person who deals with the server.

      I would be super careful, if i were you, about allowing anyone to handle your server or database. A friend of mine let another guy handle that part of the forum and in the middle of the night he went in and deleted ALL the databases and hacked her Facebook account. So yeah, not the safest idea. And, she actually trusted this guy, knew him fairly well. You just never know what a person is going to do to you, if they are mad for whatever reason. Just best not to anger someone pointlessly for no reason when they're not bothering you.

      You see, this guy is no kid.
      I've been working with him for a few months now and he normally does this type of work for his clients.

      Therefore, I have nothing to worry about.
      It's not like I befriend some kid on the Internet and gave them access to my server. Now that's crazy and you're looking for something bad to occur.

      This guy installs operating systems, control panels, fixes issues, etc, on the server when I ask him to.

      1 webmaster
      1 regular admin
      2 moderators

      I think a webmaster is almost needed with every forum, along with a good moderation team.

      On my forum there's two admin, myself and a co-founder and a moderator. I know both of them well in real life, one is family and one is an old friend/former house mate, so I trust them.

      That said, at the moment their roles are pretty much ceremonial as there isn't a great deal of moderating to be done and no spam bot has managed to beat our defences yet. *touches wood*

      I'm sure you know what you are doing. The friend i was speaking about was in a special circumstance. It was a personal life situation, like vendetta. He just got mad at her over something going on in their personal lives and got mean and did something stupid as revenge and deleted the forum databases. It was an isolated incident but devastating to the forum. It might never happen again in a million years, just that one time and only cause the person had hatred in his heart.

      I'm sure you have nothing to fear, seeing as you are dealing with a professional who does this for a living. Always best to deal with a business person who has customers and is trained to do the job and not just a friend of the family.

      My forum we currently have only one staff position and that's me. On my site I have just one person that does some articles. Perhaps later I'll start to look for some staff members to help with things.

      2 Admins, myself and my best friend.
      4 Global Moderators, which I call the "Security Police".
      3 Moderators, which I call the "Security Guards".
      3 other staff members that host groups and clubs.

      I try not to have too many staff members, as I've noticed that some boards have nothing but moderators. I also award my staff members awards and military ranks.

      Lol, it is a very uncommon subject, tunescool.

      On my blog, I'm the only admin, however on my forum, I used to get 1 admin plus several mods.
