    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.

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

      November 16, 2017

      [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.

        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)!

        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 ❤
