As the site gets larger and larger, the work on the back end of OG increases too. I am excited to say that Bohdan is now on the OG Admin Team, joining Astrobaby and me. He's been a member of OG for..., how long Bohdan? - help me out here. ...for a long time. Now that we have over 500 members, his help will be appreciated greatly.
Basically, it's pretty simple. I promote people to Admin that are long standing members of OG and that have a natural ability to help people around the site. A good admin needs to be resonable and thick-skinned, and not prone to rash decisions. I say that the Admin spots are temporary, and should last about a year. Before we moved to this platform, we had a real big problem with trolling and spam, and we had to have a Moderator team of about 6 or 7 members. But this platform is a lot better at managing all that bad stuff, so I think 3 is a good number. If you are interested in becoming an Admin, I suggest that you simply start playing the role (welcoming new members, helping people navigate the site, pointing people to relevant forum posts, etc.)
Thanks for asking,
