Joe, you got nothing to prove to those guys

Now, if you would like to be a good moderator in their eyes, the first step is to be a policeman. Are you law enforcement related?

No PO PO related here, I know they are watching but my other reasons are that I would like to be involved in the fairness that this site seems to express. Plus I have a lot of experience handling different personalities being a formen and surperintendent for a large construction Co.

You have to take classes to be a mod on SOME forums....

1. Banning people for humor 101.
2. Banning people for calling out bs 102
3. Advanced banning theory 201
4. The destructive nature of online comaraderie 301.
5. Coddling whiny n00bs 401.
6. Cat & Dog Show intervention 403


At this point, you're an apprentice Moderator.

If offset is 54mm range, yes. Got to watch some of those, as they make replicas to fit 84-87 w/ 32/38mm offsets. Obviously it would fit, but stick out 3/4" further than stock.

You confused me a bit here. Stock C5 is 8.5 fronts and stock C5Z is 9.5.
Stock tires for C5Z since this is a 9.5 is a 265/40/17 tire. Offset will be fine.
You can put a 275/40/17 on a 9.5" wheel.

Ya I know, me too. The guy told me it was an extra wheel he bought when he bought a set for his 2001 he never used. he said it is a 17 inch wheel for a 265/40/17, it is a replaca Z06 he does not know the backspacing. I want to use it on the rear of my 95 with 275/40/17. this is brand new and I can get it for $45. Chrome

The first rule of Vette Barn moderating is don't ask to be a moderator. If you know anything about forums, you will know, that anyone that ask is usually the last one that will be made a moderator. You've been here what? All of eight days and you want to be a mod?

I saw the CF moderator application once.
I don't remember all the questions but here are the ones I do.
IIRC the correct answer to all these was "yes".
1. Do you hate your mother?
2. Were you bullied as a child?
3. Do you hate watching others have fun?
4. Do you like to ban people and laugh about it?
5. Do you think people should be banned for having an opinion?

If you can remember some please post them.
