We need to get some moderators for our board as well.
I'm really super interested. I've got a lot of internet time on my hands, especially since I'm working from home 4 days a week now.
That being said, I also think Melanie (melaniep) would make a really good moderator. She always blows me over with her ability to remember board members names/details and is a really sweet soul.
What about you, Jenni?
I think you'd be a great choice, Jasmine. Melanie would too! AFM, I don't know. I maybe could.
Melanie and Jenni are both really active on the board and would make great mods. As would Sandra if she is intrested.
I think Melani P and Jasmine are both great choices!
You guys are sweet. What does a moderator do?? I don't know much about the boards and rules.
I've been wondering this myself... I might want to go out for December lol!
I could be wrong but I don't think they choose moderators until after the babies are born. You are responsible for editing any inappropriate content and can do things like make stickies etc. When it's time, missyj will post here and give more info and selection criteria, but it won't be for quite a few more months. Until then, the staff takes care of it.
Mods are usually chosen in the 2nd/3rd tri usually to co-ordinate everything that goes on.
Here's some info from the sticky at the top:
Hosts/moderators will be appointed to the board after your group enters the second trimester. If you are interested in taking on this position - or if you have a recommendation for another member that you feel will make a great host for your group, please drop a note to MissyJ ([EMAILemail@example.com]firstname.lastname@example.org[/EMAIL]) after you have entered your 10th week of pregnancy.
Unfortunately, due to the large number of boards we maintain and volume of email received, we will not be able to keep track of those received prior to this point. To help expedite things (as well as to help me keep track!) please put "Your Birth Board Name Host" as your subject line (such as "May 2012 Host") and include your username within the body of the email (or that of your suggestion for host!)
Until hosts are appointed, if you have a post that you would like to have stay at the top of your board (known as a "sticky"), please put "Sticky" within the title, copy the link and send it via private message to either LauraT or Princess&ThePea (Marla), our Site Assistants, and they will be happy to take care of that for you. Please note: We do try to limit it to no more than 5 stickies per board in order to prevent the forum from becoming overrun with stickies vs. allowing more discussions to take place! Remember - your more active threads will remain at/near the top anyway.
