Hey Susanna,

Moderators are responsible for keeping the forums of their responsibility clean from spam and make sure that the rules are followed. They are selected by Sam and Pete (the TP Overlords) when the need arises.

I'm putting that on my CV... I'm a TP Overlord , wow!

Susanna, they've explained it pretty well. There are a few threads on this in system talk, but it mainly has to do with overall site participation. If you have 100 posts, a travel log, are signed up as a travel helper, have a blog, uploaded photos and featured photos your 'rank' is 'higher' than someone that has 100 posts and nothing else. Likewise, if you are exactly equal on all other points but you have photos that have been featured by one of the TP 'overlords' as Pardus calls us :) , your rank will be slightly higher than the other.

The moderators are chosen by Pete or myself based on all kinds of factors :)

Does that mean I can put TP Overlord's Minion on my CV???? (Isa - The Spanker might give the wrong impression...)

Some of those factors have to do with bribes consisting of chocolate by the boat-loads (mainly to Sander) and the occasional 25 cases of beer per Overlord, delivered to their doorstep.

Isa notices that the Banks has not arrived yet, since the CA/SA forum name does not include "the Caribbean" yet... Just a personal observation. I'll let Beerman and Sunnie know to follow up on those deliveries! )
