Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - Clay Season - Volume 10
How do we get a new moderator for our forum ?
If you want to demonstrate that your forum needs moderation - or that you current moderator is not managing the forum adequately - all of you need to report posts regularly.
It is the best way to objectively demonstrate to those of us that don't come into your forum that there are issues which aren't being addressed. Otherwise, we are relatively oblivious.
If your forum clearly demonstrates it needs a new moderator then there will be a open announcement but a private application system.
You cannot elect your own moderator by a public poll.
How do you decide on who becomes a moderator ?
Becoming a forum moderator has nothing to do with popularity though obviously it would need to be someone that regularly posts in and uses the relevant forum.
Once we have received all applications for a particular forum when advertised, we take into account previous poster reprimands, general opinion, look through their more recent posts etc.
The person chosen needs to have demonstrated that they are willing to make unpopular decisions if necessary and they are willing to demonstrate exemplary conduct wherever else they post on the board beforehand, not at the time of the appointment.
After discussing the applicants, gathering any extra information that is needed and ruling out any that are unsuitable, administrators vote on who should become the new forum moderator.
The poster with the most votes get the post.
