Mods.. again

Has anyone decided to be a mod? I hope we get one.. or a couple.

We need one! LOL. It will make doing any gift exchanges easier. We also could get birth buddies set up if we had one.

Anyone???? Smile

I put in my nomination weeks ago and have heard nothing but crickets from the board people. I noticed November did their nominations too and still don't have a mod either. I don't know what you do????

How many are each board supposed to have? And what are we supposed to do if we want our name put in?

I'll contact Missy and ask her to look into it. Each board usually had 2-3 mods, sometimes 4. At the beginning its more and after several months or a year it goes to about 2 from what I have noticed.

If you want to me a Mod you should PM Missy and let her know. She will have final say from looking at your post count and stuff like that and will get back to you with a list of rules for the mods. Once you agree to the rules then she will set you up.

Hi ladies,

I know you and the other boards are eager for your hosts, and we do appreciate your patience. Missy is the one who sets up the hosts for each board, so yes, you do have to contact her if you are interested. I do strongly recommend that anybody who does contact her make sure that your email "rules" are set to receive emails from [EMAIL=missyj@pregnancy.org]missyj@pregnancy.org[/EMAIL]... I do know she has had occasions where she has replied to members but they have not received because their filters are accidentally sorting it as spam. So, if you haven't heard back from her, that is a possible explanation and I would suggest checking that and then contacting her again, just in case that is what has happened.

In the meantime, as has been mentioned before, if the time has come for any of the gift exchanges/birth buddies, you certainly can still organize these... we just ask that one of your members who is a host on another of our boards take care of things for you. The rules/etc. for the exchanges are listed in the information sticky at the top of your board.

Also, if you need anything stickied/unstickied/etc., you know you are more than welcome to contact either myself or Joee (girlisrad) and we will be more than happy to take care of things for you.

Thanks Marla. I didn't realize that a mod of another board that is also on Herrera could organize the exchanges.

Oh yes, absolutely. We don't want any of our boards to miss out on any of the fun, so we have that 'contingency plan' in place for when hosts haven't been able to be set up in time Smile

Exchanges (Including Birth Buddies, Secret Sisters, etc.):

While we want all exchanges to be fun and enjoyable for all, for the security and protection of our members and to help safeguard all private contact information shared, we do have some rules in place which we must ask be followed. This includes baby showers, birthday, holidays, cards, *secret sisters*, birth buddies... anything that involves collecting and/or giving out any of the member's personal contact information, whether full names; mailing addresses; phone numbers (for calls or texts); emails; etc.

These rules include the following (as well as additional guidelines which will be outlined by the mods at the time of the exchange):

  • Eligibility for participation in ANY type of exchange (i.e. birth buddy, baby shower, birthday/holiday, etc.) is set at a minimum of 3 months Pregnancy.org membership and a minimum of 300 posts. For newer boards (2 years or younger), 100 posts are to be on the board organizing the exchange.
  • ALL exchanges are to be organized by a mod/board host (preferably two, in case one gets sick/etc.). If mods have not yet been appointed to your board, then we request that a board member who is a mod of another board be in charge of organizing/collecting information/etc
