How does it work? All of our moderators are volunteers. Moderators are given a new account from which to do their duties from and their identity is kept secret. Moderators help to keep the forums clean and orderly. They are the front line for approving posts and content and handling reported issues. They work with and under the direction of the Community Management team.

FAQS What do you look for in a moderator? We’re looking for people who have shown they are helpful, well spoken, and welcoming. We expect moderators will be discrete, honest, and always have the best interests of the community along with a healthy dose of fairness and common sense guiding their decisions. How does my backer status affect my chances of becoming a mod? Simply put; it doesn’t. Your backer status, or lack thereof for that matter, does not factor into our decision. We are looking only at post histories, past behavior, and your application and follow up questions. How long will a Community Volunteer Moderator have their position? CVMs do not have a fixed term of service; however, we will do regular checkups with them every three to six months. This is to ensure they are still able and willing to continue with the tasks assigned. Of course, we reserve the right to remove any CVM we feel is not acting in a manner consistent with our policies and the community and moderator guidelines at any time and at our sole discretion. What happens if a volunteer mod abuses their position? We have a set of rules and guidelines for our volunteers to follow. They are publicly posted and if we find a volunteer is not abiding by those rules (both the letter and the spirit behind them) then the community team may choose to remove them from their position. Serious abuse or misuse of their role may result in additional actions if deemed warranted. While we will investigate moderator actions if abuse is reported, please be aware that false reports just to discredit a Moderator reputation will also be severely punished.
