I was just wondering, to the moderators, exactly how did you become a moderator? Did you ask to become one, or did you get contacted to be one? (lol Im not fishing btw, just wondering :D)

hehe... well I pm'ed moderators a few times to ask if certain threads could be "editable"- namely personal progress and daily food diary, to reduce posts and make it easier for people.

The first one was a yes (daily food diary), but on the second one (personal progress) Kate asked me if I wanted to become a moderator instead, she put in a good word for me to Scott (which was returned Kate darling :wink: ) et voila! I am now a warrior against spam hehe.

i asked admin the same question one day last year and i fit the criteria and scott asked if i wanted to become a mod. basically its someone who is a role model, has lost weight, gets along well with everyone, is willing to delete spam and keep an eye on the running of the forum, etc.

I was contacted and offered to be a mod due to my longstanding membership and participation etc. I think Dolly may have put in a word or two. I miss Dolly, where'd she go :(
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

I had only been on this forum for 1 or 2 week's before I became a moderator I was approached by scott by email, after I had email him about some spam that was on the forum to be deleted.
