Become a Forum Moderator

We Need Your Help!

Are you a caring person that likes helping others? Do you hate it when spam and harrassing posts drive people away from your favorite forum? The community is a volunteer effort. That's why we need your help. We need volunteer moderators for our HealingWell forums.

What Are the Responsibilities of a Forum Moderator?

  1. Foster a sense of community, caring, and responsiveness. This can be done by getting involved in discussions, responding to posts, and offering support.
  2. Monitor the HealingWell forums for abusive posts, unauthorized spam or advertisements, copyright infringements, threats, any sort of harrassment, and any other violations of the forum rules.
  3. Participate in the private HealingWell Forum Moderator's forum. Only current moderator's have access to this forum. This is the place to post questions, concerns, problems, ask for help, get feedback and input from your fellow mods.
  4. Read the Moderator's FAQs. This will save yourself and the administrator a lot of time regarding some of the more frequently asked questions that arise. This is a private, read-only forum for moderators only.
