Lightbulb Mods and Admins please read

I have an Idea (yes, capital I) for Bearville Insider. (BVI)

We should have Mini-Mods, which would be sort of a Mod, but a kid. They would help the Mods and/or Admins in tasks like deleting threads, modifying things, etc.

I am a member of a few sites with this rank, and it worked out pretty well.

Please consider this idea, Mods and Admins of BVI.

Hannah

Thanks! Because it's not fair to have to wait until you're 18 to be a Mod or something. It stinks.

it's18 because in order for them to background check you, you have to be an adult

oh and i think it is fair, because you wouldn't want a criminal on here moding a wonderful blog would you? especially because there are alot of younger kids on here. needs to stay safe for everyone

It is disappointing, but the mods, and admins are picked by hand. They do a background search I think on them so that way the leaders at least are safe, and they are older, and thats good because they know how to handle things, because they are grown-ups. I don't know about everyone else, but I feel very secure having such great adult leaders on here giving up there time to keep us safe. More so than on other forums where kids are in charge.

Yeah, I agree w/ you guys. But the Mini-Mods would do tasks the Mods and/or Admins assign to them. They wouldn't be in charge, they would be like an assistant

We can't have anyone on our staff lists that isn't thoroughly background checked, which requires you to be at least 18 years old. It's a liability issue that was raised long ago on WebkinzInsider by our attorney. We did have a role on WebkinzInsider called "Forum Protectors", but it had to be removed due to the background check policy that we require of all staff.

Sometimes power isn't good for younger people. LOL, they might hold it over others.
And besides doesn't everyone on here like to help? You can help in different ways.

Start right now by helping others in the Yikes Forum, posting in the Coffee house, starting parties, contests etc. It may not seem as big as deleting a thread, but its necessary to keep a forum like this running.
It also helps the mods I bet when people with avatar problems are fixed etc.
Everyone plays a different and unique part of what I like to call my BearVille Insider Virtual Family.
