To the left, you see my screen name and my status at this site.  I don't think I have ever posted this but here is how that works:
New Member ~ Less that 20 posts
Regular Member ~ 20 to 499 posts
Veteran Member ~ 500 to 10,000 posts
Elite Member ~ over 10,000 posts
Admin ~ There's only one, Peter Waite.
Forum Moderator ~ Varies in the number of posts, all in this forum are over 500 but under 10,000 so Veteran Members. 
Forum Moderator and Elite member member status allows for some editing functions, deletion of spam, access to a forum just like this one for moderators to help each other.  An Elite Member can moderate all forums.  Some moderators are enabled to do the same after a period of time.  As a rule moderators from other forums will act in our forum only when spam is obvious or in multiple forums. 
In our forum, James C., Doting Daughter, and myself ~ TC-LasVegas, will communicate with each other about issues and such, to try to arrive at the best results.  Sometimes we can't but we do try to.
For New Members, don't just look at the status to find who might best help you.  We have very knowledgable New Members all the time.  From all levels here, we have a great forum, and great contributors.  Let's all help each other and respect our inputs at every level equally.  HealingWell is a site that has received many awards, been featured on television and in the news.  That's pretty cool, huh?
