Still no MODS?

I missed a lot in April, so if I'm wrong please correct me, but I still don't see any announcement about our MODs. I looked at July 2012 and they had their's assigned back on March 7th, so one would think our would have been chosen in April. If they haven't I can contact Missy and let her know we are still waiting for them to be assigned.

If I'm not mistaken we can't do Birth Buddies, or (baby shower) Gift exchanges or anything until we have MODs.

If you do not get mods in the next few weeks myself or another mod (from other boards) can get things set up for you. I know MissyJ is pretty busy right now.

Can someone explain the function of moderators for birth boards?

Yeah, I've been wondering. I think we're def. due - a lot of us are already almost to the third trimester!

a few things that mods do are sticky/unsticky treads, organize swaps/birth buddies, manage threads (move, merge, etc), watch for spam, assist other members in any way (how to post photos etc), etc.

Hope that helps.

I will message Missy and if it is going to be a wait I will organize stuff for you and when you get mods they can take over.

Yes, what Margaret said about the birth buddy's, it doesn't have to be "our" mod just "a" mod that sets it all up! It's a safety thing because they're handling personal information.

I had an email from Missy and you will get your mods next week.

Yep. That's what I was thinking this morning. I'm PM Margaret and see if she might at least start some of the stuff for us, Birth buddies, rules and such for a baby shower gift exchange (for those interested I know you need a certain number of posts and all). Anything aside from those two ideas you can think of to get the ball rolling at least?

No, that's all I can think of at the moment. Honestly I'm a little irked that we haven't gotten any mods yet. But at least having someone get things started would be nice. Smile
