I am currently the only moderator listed for this group. I think it might be advisable to have at least one other moderator in case I need to be away from the group for a while. A moderator can create polls, notify the group, etc. (I'm new at this so there are probably other things only the moderator can do that I don't even know about!)

Let me know if you are interested in becoming a moderator.

:-) thank you

I haven't got the faintest what can and may a mod do, and how one does it, so I might need tutoring. It may happen though, that I might not be able to attend here each and every day. Is it a problem? Also, I have always been more a follower then a leader :) Do you think I'll be up to it? I am willing to try...

*LOL*

I have no idea really what the moderator does!! I started this group because there wasn't a group for LMB that I could find -- shocking I know!

If you are interested I can make you a moderator. You can play. we can talk :-)

I'll set your status now

I looked up what the moderator does on goodreads:

moderating discussion

* Moderators have the power to delete any discussion post in the group, so keep the group clean. We suggest leaving all member comments except for the following: spam, porn, extremely offensive material (eg Pro-Nazi, etc), or direct personal attacks on other members. Arguing is often part of discussing, but personal attacks are not necessary. When you do delete a comment that members may miss, note you have done so and why, so members know what happened. Note that members can also edit or delete their own comments.

* Moderators have the power to remove any member from the group. Removing a member will block them from re-joining. You can edit the group's block list from the group settings page.

* Moderators can add other moderators. We suggest you do this if you aren't particularly active, or want to leave the group.

* Moderators can give themselves, or any other moderator, a fun title!

Can we, The Moderators :D, move posts from one topic to another, I think I saw this option somewhere and now I cannot find it (and perhaps it was not at all here, that I saw that option).
Namely, the discussion about e-readers should be in the Pub IMHO.
