Let's Hear from the Database Moderators

By dave

One of the biggest strengths of our plant database is that we have it sectioned off into "custom databases," each dedicated to a specific kind of plant, and that members can be given power to moderate every aspect of those areas. Come read what our moderators think about the database in this interesting multi-person interview!

How are moderator's chosen, and is it a paid or voluntary position?

I think it was really interesting hearing from all of you moderators though, whatever the situation. I tip my hat to you. Thanks for sharing your thoughts moderators! Smiling

It's entirely voluntary. We don't really choose moderators; for the most part individuals stand up and say they'd like to be in charge of a part of the database, and we make it happen!

Case in point, just last week @MikeD took over moderating the Tomatoes database. He and I were chatting about the database and he expressed an interest so I made the offer and that was that! Smiling
