Thanks Louise :o and others.

Becoming a Mod is by invitation. I accepted the invitation to become a mod as I could see the benefit of keeping the site free from some of the spammers/scammers like the fake passport service posts. Now I have seen behind the scenes I realize just how much work these mods and site administrators do that nobody ever sees. Some of the mods even though they aren't posting much advice actually work really hard to keep the site free of these nuisance posters and they do a great job behind the scenes. :) Still learning how the mod superpowers work but happy to be part of the mod squad :)

I said it before and I'll say it again - well-deserved. :) I've been a mod for a board with 30,000 active members before, and it really is crazy how much behind-the-scenes work goes on.

A moderators job isn't to give advice about immigration, its to police the forums of spam and disruptive behavior, which she will do great at.

So sorry the mods taking on KK has upset you Floridaguy, as you said KK has being a huge help to this forum, she has always given the best advice to her knowledge and in many cases this has being "liked" by many people on this forum. the word credability means the quality of being believable or worthy of trust. the forum is still very trust worthy and the information given by People on this forum including KK is worthy and trusted, KK has certainly gone through the process of immigration and her knowledge and credability is greatly appreciated.[/quote]

1. A moderator should be someone who has been through the visa process.
hmm let me get this correct please your saying that only a mod with experience is allowed to take the role, hmmm were does Mark (sorry Mark) come into this point you make.

2.A moderator should know the laws in and out
Now i always believed A forum moderator oversees the communication activity of an Internet forum. He monitors the interchange of contributors and makes decisions regarding content and the direction of threads. The forum moderator is likely to be familiar with the members as KK is. Moderators are sometimes encouraged to join in discussions, especially if they have advice to contribute which as you said yourself KK has being a HUGE help. There is nothing that says KK is not cabable of being a MOD

3.A moderator is a position for maybe a Mark Northam,someone with credentials, not someone going through the visa process.
OH my number 1 your saying that a MOD should be some who has being through the visa process, and here number 3 your saying it shouldnt be for some one going through the visa process, please enlighten me which one is it. Maybe Mark was asked and refused who knows. Are you saying that KK doesnt have the credentials to be a MOD because thats a little unfair. One may not have the credentials in form of a degree or masters but to have the credentials earned through honesty and trust of hundreds of people is far greater, i am proud that KK has being given the post she deserves it.
