How are the volunteers picked and do you have to put in a request to become a volunteer? [Smile]

To even be considered, we look for a minimum of fifty posts a user has made (and without clearly just trying to rack up posts).

After that minimum, we simply keep an eye out for users who are clearly helpful to other users, who show they can use the site (such as by using the search functions) and get the guidelines, who are proactive in terms of educating themselves by reading the main site and other sexuality and sexual health materials, the works.

When we see all that, and have some openings, we then discuss it and email potential new moderators.
