    First of all Welcome to OpenStudy laudalo. Great to see you worrying about the system and selection of OpenStudy mods and ambassadors. It works nearly in a democratic manner. Taking the example of India ... just like the president is not directly chosen, similarly the ambys and mods here are not chosen directly. The admins regularly look at their performances and work and appoint them with different responsibilities. There are many ways in which a user can make fake accounts and vote for himself , so the voting / election method is not totally fair at all. The method of choosing ambys and mods by checking their progresses , performances, responses and controls over the situations is correct and fair according to me. You can still give your feedback about the users who you think deserve to be ambassadors and moderators by : Writing a testimonial for them according to their performances. Admins check the user profiles regularly , those users who are nearly capable to face the responsibility ... \(\boxed{\boxed{\Large{\stackrel{\color{red}{\ast\qquad\star\qquad\ast\qquad\star\qquad\ast\qquad\star\qquad\ast\qquad\star}}{\mathscr {\color{orange}{Welcome } \quad \color{green}{To}\quad \color{purple}{OpenStudy }!!}}}\\{\color{pink}{\ast\qquad\star\qquad\ast\qquad\star\qquad\ast\qquad\star\qquad\ast\qquad\star}}}} \)

    OpenStudy attempts to be as democratic as possible. And I think does a fairly good job. Admins are people who actually work for OpenStudy. It would be impractical to meet a company's staffing needs (i.e., programmers, public relations specialists, directors) by putting staffing choices by election. Mods are selected, not elected, because we have qualities that the administrators want in people who are here to keep order on the site and, to be honest, guide it in the direction that OpenStudy as a company wants to move. It is a position for very, very responsible and chill people who tend to be experts in one academic discipline or another, not necessarily winners of online popularity contests. The ambassadors are selected in a slightly more democratic fashion. All applications are visible to all the moderators. We discuss each candidate and vote - and the outcome of that vote is given to the admins (who make the final choice) as a recommendation which they may or may not follow. And the admins and mods do pay significant heed to the feedback in this group. Overall, users here have a great deal of guidance and contribute much to the direction the site and the whole company move (and it is appreciated), which is more than can be said of most similar platforms where an executive makes decisions and users just accept it.
