Be sure to read both announcements pertaining to the Web Sites Rules, Policies and Posting content information before applying. The rules, policies and posting content applies to all moderators, as well as all members. There are no exceptions allowed to the Web Sites Rules, Policies and Posting content.

Qualities Of A Good Moderator: (Brief Overview) A moderator should be an expert in his/her field of expertise in order to ensure the poster is given the most accurate and detailed information possible.

Moderators are expected to provide fair and unbiased information from the prospective of being a professional. Moderators generally earn respect by providing professional advice, suggestions, fair evaluations, comments and impartial behavior.

Moderators are required to monitor and manage all content within their topics and postings. Being polite and always using diplomacy while being firm when dealing with the rule violators and policy breakers, is a must.

Moderators should have fluent language proficiency skills, good typing skills and in-depth knowledge on the subject material of the discussions within the topic in which they moderate.

Moderators should not participate in controversial discussions on sensitive topics. *Avoid expressing strong and/or extreme opinions.* When a topic under discussion is hijacked by a member and the discussion threatens to get out of hand, a moderator is expected to step in to prevent a war of words from breaking out. (Management Skills, Tact and Diplomacy Are All Very Beneficial.)

Equally as important is keeping order in the forum topics. A requirement that all moderators maintain a constant good working relationship with other moderators. Any disputes and/or disagreements between moderators must be dealt with privately. All dealings with each other must be on a professional level and never in the forum topics. Leave your baggage at home also.

Do It Yourself.com is the most professional web site of it's kind on the Internet. And it must and will be kept that way, in the best interests of the web site and the professionals whom moderate the forum topics. There will be no exceptions made to anyone whom cannot conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times.
