Thank you for considering becoming a Moderator at WebmasterWorld.

What we are looking for in Moderators is experience, a helpful attitude, long term commitment, trustworthiness, dependability, and knowledge of their chosen forum.

Although we believe that no set of rules or requirements could eclipse one simple requirement, a willingness to contribute to the community, we do have a small set of requests for our Moderators for them to use as guideposts.

  • Users that ask questions should get some sort of reply. If you don't know the answer, wait and see if someone else does. If not, point them in the right direction or put out a general plea for user help.
  • Moderators are asked to refrain from any commercial or self promotion activities. Moderators should use their help contributions as a lost leader. Referrals will be generated off their profile.
  • Valid email and url are asked in moderator profiles.
  • We support moderators goals when we can.
  • Be respectful of all users all all times. Keep an 'up' tone.
  • If a user becomes a perpetual problem do your level best to deal with the situation and if still a problem, ask one of the Administrators to deal with it. We are 'nice' here and everyone but the problem children get a full benefit of the doubt.
  • If something shouldn't work out and we have a major disagreement that leaves you wanting to leave, or we ask you to leave, please do so in good faith. We asked in good faith.

If you would like to apply to become a Moderator, send any of the Administrators a StickyMail with the forum you are requesting and a brief note explaining why you feel you would be good for such a forum.
