Question Answered: A little question. =)

Hey WI,
Just a question - mostly for the mods/admins.
I know it's probably impossible for members to become mods and admins, but I was just wondering how you got chosen to be a mod or admin! Is it like applying to be Gifted or Gift Guru, but more secretive? Just something I've been pondering.
Thanks,
agonn

In order to be a moderator, you must be an adult. In addition, you have to be an active member of the community. The way we currently do it is, when a current moderator or administrator notices someone they think is a potential candidate, they are nominated and watched for a period of time. When everyone agrees, we give them "the tap" and offer them a position. They are not required to take it, it is up to them!

A member of the Staff (Mostly Founders/Admins) will "Tap" you and watch your posts to see if you are active, committed, and helpful. Remember you need to be over the age of 18 to become a Staff Member.

It is most definitely possible. Look at how many wonderful staff members we already have! It's just hard to find members over the age of 18 who can find time in their busy lives to moderate the site and keep it ship-shape and fun for all of us.

You also have to be over the age of 18 to be a mod or admin, and I am pretty sure most of us here are not adults yet, not all but most. First you become gifted, then gift guru, then a gift coach, and then if your cool enough you get to be a mod. xD

You don't have to be part of the Gift Exchange. That's not required. (although most have been) And 05 is right, a background check is part of the process.
