How can one become a MODERATOR ? Is there any restriction or simply it become an MODERATOR... I think AMBASSADORS chooses and elect that user to become a MODERATOR.... but there is one question arises in my mind that a small smartscore user also become a MODERATOR.. and also it has not too much high smartscore and he/she is new to OPEN STUDY....

    To become a moderator, you need to be expert in a subject, you should be able to take mature decisions, you should behave very nicely, and you must help to enforce the CoC here. Then you wait for an admin to notice your talent, maturity and behavior.

    SS doesn't play a big role. One reason that person is a mod, is that (s)he might be a member of an administrators team (they don't need any of that, they are mods by default)

    Like hartnn said, that person is probably a member of the OpenStudy administrator team. They work at openstudy headquarters, and they don't have to fulfill the requirements to become a mod because they're not mods, they're admins. But you cannot distinguish mods from admins because they're both titled moderator.

    Charu has just joined the team as an admin, analytics, community manager etc. She is learning about OpenStudy. Say hi to her when you see her. @charuvig. Thanks for being vigilant. For everyone else, you do need a high smart score and need to have social cred with the community! Mayank you are getting there. And you HAVE to be over 18!

    Yes most interns get mod status, like this guy @polesapart And as far as I am concerned I don't get to elect moderators xD so no ambis do not elect them, but they could give enough positive feedback that admins realize the user is very valuable asset to OS and decide to add him/her.

    Okay I would start with: never ask to be a mod, that would only decrease your chance of ever becoming one. You also have to be 18+ (as @preetha said). It is also useful to be an expert in a particular field. Most mods on this site are math geniuses :P In order to become moderator, you have to win the respect of this community through interaction, knowledge and the ability to interact and intervene in an appropriate manner. You can become mod when the administrators feel that you have the qualities of a good moderator based on how you interact with other community members. The only way to get there is to become an active, helpful member of OpenStudy and hope you get lucky when we decide to add more moderators! I think becoming a moderator is a long process of trust and you probably won't get there in just a few months. If you realy want this site to be a better place you can also help by applying for ambassador :)

    One thing I noticed: "Moderator is the highest position." No. Webmaster is. Preetha could derank Hartnn in a second if she really wanted to. The hierarchy is: Member/Ambassador (These two are equal) Moderator Administrator Webmaster (The creators are webmasters, which have more jurisdiction than administrators.) ;)

    I think some of the webmasters are Admins as well.

    The people who hold the most power on OpenStudy are those who have physical access to the database, those who work with the actual servers, and those who control the sandbox ig.., raw computer controls.
