How to be a Social Support Moderator

The Role of a Social Program Moderator

As a moderator this user is a mentor and a moderator, their tasks tend to be, but are not limited to:

  • orienting the user and help alleviate any doubts when responding to users;
  • reporting any bad behavior of the user #fxhelp (on Twitter)
  • reporting any spam and triaging it with the tag 'Spam' and if necessary: to twitter or to facebook
  • showing how to correctly configure the TweetDeck there are any issues and adding to this document explaining how to set up TweetDeck
  • reporting their positive or negative actions to both admins and other moderators. Nominate them for contributor of the week in the Community Meeting etherpad;-)
  • evaluateing whether it meets the prerequisites to use the Reply. At least one moderator and one admin need to be a part of that decision.

As a moderator you remove barriers to participate and drive members motivation to particpate. They also help with conflict and making sure that escalated issues are addressed by an admin. They help keep the atmosphere positive and keep users under the impression that we have a mutual purpose and have mutual respect for one another.

Back to the Guidelines if you came from there

What you agree to do as a moderator:

As a SUMO community member and forum moderator:
  1. I accept and promise to follow all the above guidelines.

  4. I accept that I will be contacted by moderators, community managers, and other Mozilla product users from the private message feature.
  5. I will remember to have fun and take a break when I become frustrated or find myself in a heated debate.
  6. I understand that compassion is a trait I should display when communicating and collaborating with other community members and Mozilla product users.

What does that mean? =Elaboration on some of the new responsibilities that you will have informally. =
