I approached quite a few people on the forum who hadn't been online for a while to draw their attention to the "adverts" for moderators. We wanted this sorted out for the beginning of July when the holiday making starts and not dragging on for weeks. It's not something we need to ponder over - either a "Yes, I will" or "No, not for me" response is all that's needed - so that we can focus on the forum.
It is an important role and you do have to be committed to moderate. However, on the point about "knowledge", the Piano Lounge is non-topic based. The roles were Moderators and were to "assist with the moderating" or various forums. I still moderate on ALL forums and the moderator role was to assist the Global Moderator role on the forum.
There are forums such as Piano History, Digital Pianos and Teaching Pianos which are topic sensitive and Barrie and I did ask for some experience on one forum - however, as the terms and conditions state, this is a community and not a citizens' advice bureau where everything said here is the absolute and final word. It's a venue to share thoughts, ideas, questions, answers and as such, responses can be biased or poorly expressed.

There are some names in cyan now, does this mean junior moderator?
