  • Make sure that the person applying understands the responsibilities of a moderator. Direct them to the Responsibilities page.

  • Once the form has been reviewed, the Community Group Lead will contact the patron and help them put the user box on their Talk page and add them to the moderator lists. She will also direct the new moderator to the pages they need to review in order to fulfill their duties as a moderator.
  • Add the new moderator to Yammer (after receiving their permission).
  • Make the introductory lessons designed for new volunteers available to new moderators.
