Re: Does an admin really need to be active?

I also believe the admin must be active. It's a good feeling that we users can run to you whenever we have querries or have other concern that only you can be of help. If the admin is reachable then we users feel we belong. I am glad the admin here is active whenever possible.

admin and site owners need to be active if they care about their site. If they are not active, spammers will bombard the site. If your site is a user based site like forum, you need to actively check the posts and users.

They have to be active, if not, the members will
think that the admin has really no interest on pursuing his site and does not care about his members.

If a site runs smoothly there is hardly any need to bother the Admin folks. From my experience, it's good that an Admin is always on active duty but if Admin staff always have to be active, that's a problem! :?

Whether your website is a forum, a blog, ecommerce site or even a business website, you need to be active on your site.

It should be but not really every hour of the day. They can be active from time to time to check if the forum goes out well and also to attend to the concern promptly.

Forums have admins, moderators and members. The admins retain the ownership and overall of the site while moderators are able to help the admins to keep the site moving. Members on the other hand are the ones which make everything possible due to their participation. An admin may be fully active or not for as long as moderators are available.

if there are other staffs to help him run the site, then i could say that he can take lesser time to spend on his website. however, he should still be active enough to watch on how the site is going and should always be there when there is a problem that needs to be solved.

Well if the admin staff can oversee the site well then the admin can just visit and check.

Exactly, and most forums have moderators who keep helping the admin with site dutoes. If they help, why does he or she have to be active all time..

An admin needs to be proactive so as to answer any query by the users. The person should be active to keep the site running properly and orderly.

If you own a site, you must be very active on your site. Its your site and you should be protecting it from spammers and hackers.

Whether you own a user generated content site or your own blog where you are the only one creating content, you need to be very active.
