Being a moderator


Moderator job is something that is serious. Consider as your virtual-every-day-job. It has a lot of responsibilities and you need to know with what kind of forum you are dealing with. This article will be telling you all tips and tasks to become an excellent moderator and make an excellent career. I’ve been in forums communities and working for forums for 5 years and I have the experience to tell you all the good parts and good info to be a good moderator. You should know, that 5 years ago, I got hired as moderator on a small forum and the next week I got fired from that job! Of course, the administrator wanted new moderators to give them a chance to begin somewhere. I did not have any experience and did not know how to be moderator and that’s how doing bad work fired me! I learned a lesson and never did it again. I never got fired from a moderator job since then – unless I would quit. That’s why I want to prevent you from this and by reading this article, you’ll be able to start your moderating career in no time and be a good moderator!

The difficult part of beginning is that you don’t have any experience and it’s hard to find an administrator who wants to hire none-experienced moderators. Usually, if they do hire these new moderators it’s because they want to give a chance to starters. The best way to get hired is to be very active on a forum and then be moderator. Usually, administrators who do that don’t ask you anything and hire you. These kinds of hiring have caused a lot of problems. Members who became moderators had no experience and did not know what they were doing. I have known a lot of cases like that. More and more administrators will ask you, via email, a presentation email with your forum experience resume. If you start off, I suggest you become very active on a forum and, then, you’ll be hired a moderator. Stay one month or less, then quit, and find a new moderating job.

Let’s say you just got hired on a forum as moderator. It’s the first time you work as a moderator and it’s the first time you go onto this forum where you are about to start your new job. Moderating is not just erasing, locking topics, it’s also about helping the administrator to find techniques to grow or to arrange something on the forum. The best thing to do, when you arrive, is propose few ideas to the administrator about how this forum can improve in global atmosphere, how to get members faster, strategies to make members active ones, etc. It’s all depending on the forum problems. He’ll see that you are a hard working person and you want, not only, contribute to moderating to the forum but also help the forum to grow and improve. Of course, you must still do your job; moderate.

Second of all, try to get to know the community of this forum especially the members frequenting mostly the sections that you moderate. Talk to them, let them propose ideas, try to tell them what projects you have in mind for this forum and tell them rules that you are imposing for each sections you moderate. Of course, you must be very active on this forum, especially try to develop these sections you are moderating by creating, everyday, new topics and reply quick so that the total posts on these sections become high. I have known a lot of moderators who tended to act superior to members by threatening these members of banning them or act as if the moderators knew more information’s, on these sections that they moderate, more than anyone else on this forum. You must not act well. Actually, you must act equal to all members. If you ban a member – if you have the right – you must create an extra topic with valuable reasons. Because, you don’t want, the next days, to have members complain of you because you had no valuable reasons! Then, the administrator might fire you!

Memorize that you need to be very active on the forum where you work and be nice and appreciated by all members. Your work needs to be good and then, once you’ll get a lot of jobs of moderating, your forum experience resume will be great!
