I will apologise in advance at the length of this post! Due to the success of the site so far we are looking to take on 2 additional moderators in 2012. Being a moderator is a thankless task (although we do get the odd thanks every now and then!). There is no real kudos to the role and certainly no financial recompense. It requires a certain amount of effort and commitment. Training will be given where required. A forum moderator is not the forum Police. The primary role of a forum moderator is to promote interaction. A forum moderator should be posting new threads and adding new content to the site. They should be helping out members with their queries and they should be keeping threads alive by asking questions. Below is a basic job role to give you an idea of what we are looking for. A regular visitor/contributor to the site. As a moderator you should be able to visit the site daily where possible (a Tapatalk enabled phone would be really useful!). You can't moderate if you don't ever come here! A sense of humour to work with me! You are an agent of tact & tolerence, and have the ability to the see the bigger picture in any dispute. A good standard of written English and the ability to communicate clearly is essential. Reasonably IT literate. You will need to be able to assist members if they have site related issues. For example - support for attaching images to posts. Be involved in the development/promotion of the site. 'Ambassador' is a cheesy but apt word. Access to Skype for conference calls as a team when appropriate. (Skype is free to use, but you will need your own headset - webcam optional) A user of social media such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube would be useful (but not essential) As well as the day to day moderation of the forum listed above, we would also like to assign other responsibilities. This falls under the development/promotion aspect of the job role. These will be vaguely categorised as follows (a full spec of each role is being defined currently). Social Media. Getting the Zorg message out there on the 'net Fund raising/events coordinator. Site development. Collating the 'feedback and suggestions' from site members. Wiki/project/knowledge. Building up these areas of the site with quality articles. If you are interested, then please email me directly gazhyde @ yahoo.com (not by PM) with a statement of what you can offer as a moderator. Please also give a confidence rating to the following forum functions (to give us an idea of your current forum skills). 1> posting a picture from external host 2> posting a picture using the attachment option 3> editing posts you have already made 4> User Control Panel options such as 'Signature' 5> Using the Private Messaging system If we don't get more than 2 people apply, then I guess that makes the decision easy although it will need ratifying by all the current mods. However if we have a large response we will need to have some form of voting/election process. If this is required, we will hold a ballot of member votes after the statements are published on the forum for people to consider. Let me know if you have any questions.
