Get to know the Moderator Team!

Hey there ReachOut Community Team! 

 

I thought I'd make a space to introduce our Mod team so you can get to know them all a bit better Smiley Happy 

 

Moderators are members of the online community who volunteer to help out with the running of the forums. You will see Mods replying to posts and offering support, leading discussions and conversations, and generally spending time in all sections of the forums to make sure there are conversations here for everyone Smiley Happy 

 

All our Mods started off as community members and builders, and have done training with ReachOut to grow their skills in peer support and building a sense of community. They are all legends!

 

Every 3 months we will be welcoming more Moderators, so this is a space for you to get to know them all better. 

 

For our Mod team:

 

How long have you been a member of the ReachOut Community?

 

Why did you become a Mod?

 

What are your 3 favourite things to do when you have down time? 

 

What are you most looking forward to in your Moderator role in the next year?

Re: Get to know the Moderator Team!

Hey everyone! Smiley Very Happy

 

I'm so excited to be a mod and work with you guys on building a safe and supportive community!

 

Okay I'll answer these questions

 

How long have you been a member of the ReachOut Community?

I've been a member since April this year Smiley Surprised I joined because I was feeling alone during covid. Although I remember reading over posts in the community wayy before I joined (I was too scared to make an account haha) Smiley Tongue

 

Why did you become a Mod?

I really wanted to learn how to better support people, and the training has helped a bit with that I think. I also thought it was just a cool and fun thing to do and always wondered what goes on behind the scenes of activities on the forums

 

What are your 3 favourite things to do when you have down time? 

I go through phases of liking different things. At the moment I like being with my cats, going for walks and listening to music.

 

What are you most looking forward to in your Moderator role in the next year?

Hearing others stories, participating in fun activities, supporting and being supported (that's right, us mods reach out for support too Smiley Happy)

 

Really nothing has changed, I'm still the same old silly LSE5 with a new badge Smiley Very Happy

 

Everyone on these forums is a legend! Let's be legends together Smiley Happy
