We're looking for a couple more moderators. The current team do an amazing job and of course to some extent you are all moderators - plenty of you email us if you feel something is getting out of hand and for that we're very grateful - but we feel that given how busy the site now is, we need a few more official folks, with access to our direct contact details, watching over it.
Being a moderator requires a diplomacy and restraint, so if those aren't your strong points please do keep posting on Talk, but don't apply to be a moderator . Of course being around a lot also helps.
Moderators essentially have two roles. The first is to help out if queries (including media requests please) aren't answered by bumping and cajoling responses. The second is to attempt to (!) calm inflammatory situations, intervene where misunderstandings occur and keep mumsnet HQ informed (via email and tel if necessary) of anything that might warrant intervention.
It's a purely voluntary post (ie unpaid sadly) but you do get your pic on the mods page so it's not without glamour. If anyone would like to volunteer, please email email@example.com.
