I do you become a activist, moderator,sexpert,advocate,administrator(sp?),etc. I'm a neophyte and I sometimes know a real good reply for someone in need and I can't answer.

Sexpert: Our adult staff.

Advocate: The moderators we choose, usually based on a minimum number of posts (generally around 50), general maturity level, previous help experience, the ability to follow the posting guidelines and help enforce them, the ability to use the board functions well, such as the search function, and a thorough knowledge of the basic information at the entire site.

Activist: Those posters with more than about 35 posts. This title is placed on a poster automatically by the system.

Neophyte: Any poster with less than around 35 posts.

We appreciate everyone's help here, and anyone can help no matter what their board title. It isn't a title that creates respect, it is what you do here and who you are.

[P.S.] The reason that you can't reply to a thread that you often have a good answer to is becauce the user posted their topic in a thread where only administrators (advocates and sexperts) can reply. This may be because they want really accurate and detailed information or the topic might be a crisis.

[I got this information from a thread that the search function gave me]

Also, ANY user can reply to ANY of the board threads save those which are only asked looking for answers from staff and volunteers.

The users who post those post there in general because they want an answer from a very experienced staffer.

I see the qualities listed for how advocates come to be, but how does that work?...
Do you just take notice to their maturity, posts and how well they use the site and its functions, and all the other important factors, do you just *observe* them and then *choose* them to be advocates?
I was just wondering how exactly it works.
thanx

Becoming Board Staff: Advocate, Sexpert

Miz Scarlet observes your (almost) every post to see your general maturity level, how well you know the stuff (it's mostly around the boards but by doing other research you will gain more knowledge), how well you know the boards and how you make use of it, etc.

Board Titles: Neophyte, Activist, Advocate, Sexpert

When you first join the boards, you're automatically Neophyte. Once you make around 30-something posts, you're an Activist. But don't keep posting & posting just for the sake of becoming an Activist because quality is more important than quanity. Anywho, the boards count your posts for you and automatically make you an Activist. You're an activist forever, unless Miz Scarlet makes you an Advocate. Then unless you resign from your advocacy, you're always one unless she makes you a Sexpert. Sexperts know mostly everything about, well, everything it seems like. They're some smart cookies.

But don't worry about the board titles, because your title here really makes no difference. Your advice/input is always wanted here, unless it's against the Guidelines.
