How do you become a moderator?
I'm wondering this. Do you just have to be really good at all the languages, or is it something else? And what's the difference between an expert and a moderator? What can you do as a moderator?
Duolingo moderators are all very active in the discussions. They are savvy at a particular language or two or three :) They welcome and help other language learners. Moderators get recognized with a star on their picture. They have some mod rights like being able to delete comments that do not uphold our Community Guidelines that you can read more about here: http://www.duolingo.com/guidelines. We're going to continue building out our mod program and are always on the search for more mods. :)
Moderators used to have a green star on their picture, but they can currently be recognised by the green M next to their name.
Would any person who helps add a language become a moderator because that person knows the language well, or does the Duolingo community only pick out specific people to become moderators?
