Cheers to our AMAZING Moderators

Thank you moderators for all that you do and will do! I really appreciate all your guys' hard work to make duolingo great the way it is! If you guys dont mind would you share what being a moderator is like?

November 16, 2017



Thanks a lot guys! ^^ But to be sincere, it is the whole community of you amazing users that makes Duolingo the awesome site it is ;) We're really grateful to you for everything!

I'm really happy to be involved in such a big project as is spreading free education to the world! I'll continue working hard for every one of us! ^^ Together we can change the world for the best!

    Being a moderator must be amazing. Helping people with question they have. It just seems great to be one.....


    Hey ShadowMcCloud,

    just to let you know, you don't need to be a moderator to help people with questions. :) A lot of "regular" users (that for me are not regular but exceptional!) help answering people's questions doing a great job. This is exactly what being part of a community means. :)

    As a result, I feel it's important to thank also all those users that, even if they are not moderators and do not have any specific recognition, help us make this community better day after day.


    It totally is, but you don't have to be a moderator to help people with languages ;) When I first started Duolingo, I helped as I could for 2 years, and only after that I was taken as a moderator. But I still had fun even before becoming one. :) I value the friendly relationship of the community the most ^^ It is always the main thing for any site.


    thanks! I really dont have words to thank you.


    One thing I am grateful for: OUR MODERATORS!

      That seems like a good idea. I really want to help people but of I course I have to be 18 or older.

      [deactivated user]

        Not to help out of course. 18 or older to be a moderator. They should have something where there is a thing for high school people.


        @AKicsiMacska Moderators are a type of Global Ambassador, so yes, to be a moderator you have to be 18+. The Moderator Guidelines are for how moderators should behave, not all the requirements for becoming one.


        I agree.ps. you should delete your age on your discussion...dont want you to get in trouble...


        Actually, I don't think you have to be 18 or older to be a moderator. You do have to be over 18 to be a global ambassador however.

        (I've checked the moderator guidelines and I didn't find anything about having to be over 18, but it was clearly stated in the global ambassador guidelines)


        We would not be much without them and it would put a lot of work ahead for admins (also special credits to them) and they would literally have to work all day. I am glad you mention this because they work ENTIRELY voluntarily. So thanks to them.


        Exactly. Admins and moderators are the best and they are amazing.(period)!


        An enormous thanks to every single Moderator and contributor that has ever existed on duolingo! Duolingo wouldn't be half as awesome without you guys!


        They have their own lives to steer and jobs to do, they aren't paid, and they need to dedicate time to their language learning like the rest of us. Yet they volunteer and amazingly (and patiently) manage to moderate, advise, and give support to such a global scale community. I am truly impressed by the amount of effort our moderators invest to help make duolingo the successful educational platform that it is.


        I totally agree! The moderators do an AMAZING job at helping us when we need it and keeping everything in order! If it wasn't for them, we all probably wouldn't be having so much fun learning a new language! This website might not even exist without them! I'm so thankful for all the work that they do. I have no words except Thank You!!!! But even that doesn't feel like enough ❤


        Totally true!! The moderators are awesome!


        hey you are one nice kid shadowmccloud!


        I agree. Thank you mods and admins.
