Default Re: Another stupid question by me... can moderators become administrators?

Good question... I don't think you can go straight from Gift Guru to Admin, I think you'd have to be a Mod first...

Admins have way more responsibility than the Mods, they're basically in charge of everything and Mods take care of moditoring the Forum, closing/editing posts/threads, and keeping us safe. If a Mod were to become an Admin, I guess they're being a Mod would be a little bit of training before they stepped up and took on the responsibility of being an Admin.

That's just what I think.
You should ask a Staff Member if you want to be 101% sure.

This is definitely true I know for a fact that MommaB, I believe, was a GG and worked her way to to admin. Being an admin is a LOT of responsibility and they have to have a lot of trust in you to make you an admin. So far I haven't heard of anyone going from GG to Admin, but Dixiecup was promoted from Gifted to Mod, so you never know if it'll happen in the future

well partially true DL, I was a GG, yes, then I was asked if I would like to become a Mod. I trained under MissyK and was honored to be blue, I was really, REALLY floored when I was asked if I would like to become an Admin. and I still am.

while is might seem like you need to be a GG then a GC ect. ect. the truth is , that isn't true.
there are some staff members that became mods without being a GG or a GC.

when it was said members can't apply, this is true. also the fact that each staff member needs to be 18 or older for legal reasons.

I would be really excited too, if I were you! I heard that from chatting at the GE DCT, and I doubted that anyone would lie there.

Aw FIA a lilkinz? hard to imagine!

I am pretty sure there is no set "ladder" that one follows to the "top" in WI.

Some people are good at some things.....like helping Gift Trainees....or Moderating the Forums....Helping newer members or Administration.

It is the job of the Administration and the Moderators to recognize potential in members for certain areas and keep them in mind for these different areas. When they feel the member is ready, they will bring it up to them.

So your potential here in WI will be different than someone else's.
Just do what you like best and feel comfortable at and see what comes from it!!!!

Usually, I see a pattern, but it doesn't always happen this way-- Gift Guru, Gift Coach, Mod, Admin. <-- An example of this would be MissGnomie. She was a Guru, then a Gift Coach, and now she is a wonderful mod.
If a WI Member is 18 or older, I belive they are eligible for becoming part of the WI Staff.
Well I'm not the surest but I don't think that you can always be a moderator or admin I think you just have to earn it kinda
