mods????

Do we have them yet? Seems like it's getting pretty late and we still don't have them. ALOT of us are in/almost in our 3rd trimesters already. Just wondering I know we need them to get any kind of Birth Buddies and/or gift exchange going.....

I've been wondering the same thing. Whoever the mods turn out to be are going to have to work super fast. It didn't take this long last time when I had DD. I'm not sure why it is this time.

We didn't get them on my March board until we had our babies. I remember because it was about a week or two after I had Rowynn.
What we did was just exchanged information our self for birth buddies. For exchange I think one of the mods who is a mod on another board arranged that. Either that or we just matched up and exchanged information on our own, but then it's not a surprise.

If mods haven't been assigned and you want to set up birth buddies/gift exchanges, you certainly can. We just ask that someone (or 2 someones) who are hosts on another board here arrange things for you and that you follow the guidelines as noted in the Info sticky at the top of the board:

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.

I emailed Missy about it maybe a month ago and she said that she was still waiting to hear back from some of the people that have been nominated I guess. That was the last I heard.

Well whoever she's waiting to hear back from hurry up ;).

I emailed her a week or so ago asking her what was happening with mods and I haven't heard back from her yet. Maybe she's been busy.

I don't think they are waiting on me. I never got an email to respond to.

If we aren't going to have mods anytime soon, should we go ahead & proceed with the gift exchange, etc?

I looked around and didn't see anyone else that was a mod on another board. I've been REALLY busy..but if everyone wants to go ahead and sign up we can hope for the best that mods will be appointed soon. If they don't get appointed before everyone is ready to swap information then I'll volunteer to help out and collect and swap information if everyone wants.
Like I said though, ONLY if mods aren't appointed before everyone is ready to do a swap. Smile

Oh, and if someone else is a mod on another board and wants to do it/help PLEASE do! Smile

So anyone that wants to start a thread to sign up, feel free to. Smile
