    I dunno there's probably something to be said about a person's leadership abilities to keep an online community of nearly 20,000 running fairly smoothly with an active participating base/readership.

    hmmm... I'd say it depends on the business. Forum usage is not common among the majority of the population.

    Less than 5% of those 20,000 are actually active here. Also, the moderators are not leaders, they're moderators. They make sure people adhere to set rules for a level of order and harmony. It can be a difficult thing to do, but essentially online forum moderation is fairly different from an office workplace. Most employers wouldn't see it as something that strongly contributes to a job with face to face dynamics.

    Risking further derailing, look at you going all Te on me.

    You say potato, I say potato. Moderators are totally leaders of a forum they ultimately make the decisions of how the rules are handled, who gets banned, what features get implemented, etc. As for a resume, it's going to depend on the employer--In my subjective opinion, I think this would be a decent booster for any human resources or customer service job.

    Print gave us the literate individual and jobs. And a job is a specialisation.

    On the other hand the electric media, like Typology Central, gives us roles. And on Central roles are expressed as avatars. Just look to your left and see the role I play with the avatar called Mole.

    Article in the WSJ on whether you should list gaming skills on your resume:

    "Can 'World of Warcraft' Game Skills Help Land a Job?"

    Excerpt:

    Warlock or druid?

    A handful of job seekers are listing achievements in videogames such as the role-playing platform "World of Warcraft" on their résumés or LinkedIn profiles, betting that virtual-world accomplishments will impress hiring managers in real life.

    [...]

    Some players say the game's tasks aren't that different from the duties of the modern office job.

    That was the view of Heather Newman, who included her Warcraft experience on the résumé that helped land her current job as director of marketing and communications for the University of Michigan's School of Information.

    In the "Leisure/Volunteer Activities" section of her résumé, Ms. Newman noted that she has managed guilds of as many as 500 people and organized large-scale raids of 25 to 40 players to complete tasks for several hours four to five days a week. These tasks, she said, "directly apply to the kind of job I hold."
