What is the role of a group moderator?



Moderators give advice and provide guidelines to their fellow group members.

Members should feel comfortable to ask the moderator questions.

When projects are assigned to groups, moderators liaise with the HOD, (head of development), to become aware of each new project’s objectives and guidelines.


   moderator may work with the HOD to determine a brief for a project and will help group members stay on-mission for each project.

Moderators may also bring to the HOD’s attention unacceptable behavior such as flaming or spamming, (the penalty for which is death or banishment).

anted… more moderators.


Groups can have more than one moderator to reduce the work-load. Many new and existing groups do not have any moderators yet. If you’re interested in becoming a moderator for any of the groups, drop the HOD a line.


hen you join a WordPress site you do so as a subscriber, (somebody who can only manage their own profile) but there are other important roles including:

  • Contributor – Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish them, (the HOD or an editor will review the work and then go on to publish it on the site for the contributor).
  • Author – Somebody who can publish and manage their own posts
  • Editor – Somebody who can publish and manage posts and pages as well as manage other users’ posts, etc
  • Administrator – Somebody who has access to all the administration features
  • Journalist – Someone who interviews team members for the site
  • Presenter – Someone who presents new info and does video interviews for the site

 In the near future we will be seeking team members to fulfill these roles and others.

    Just a quick comment – having joined the Rio de Janeiro group I thought it would be good idea to add many – if not all – the other members of this group as friends (with the idea of getting an active group going) but it seemed a VERY slow process to add anyone as a friend – first of all you had to click on them to get a profile, or a limited amount of info , then you had to request to be added but it took a long time and I gave up after two people…can this be speeded up?
