    No, it has nothing to do with the current post count a member has. And I don't think, there is a selection process. I think, willingness and continuity in contributions are more important.

    cannot be. I have posts more 600, but my status is Advance Member, [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />] And also moderator status should not decide upon the number of posts.<br /><br /><blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"><i>Originally posted by ghemant</i><br /><br />i am saying this because i have download and setup snitz forum , and running it in our intranet.. it is all about a status of member which is decided by the no of post. this is as much as i know .. <br /><br /><br /><br />Regards.<br /><br />hsGoswami<br />ghemant@gmail.com<br /><hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></font id="quote"></blockquote id="quote">

    Again no. I've run Snitz long time on our intranet. IIRC, you can define several user "levels" such as "Full member" or "Advanced Member". But to setup a moderator you need to take action yourself. This is no automatic process. Here's a passage from the Snitz help:

    quote:
    To assign a moderator you must logged in as the Admin. Click "Members" (top right). A list of your forum members will be displayed. Click the pencil icon on the very right of the member you wish to make into a moderator. A pop-up window will appear with your username and password already filled in, just click "Submit". At the bottom where it says "Member Level:", change this to "Moderator" and click "Submit". Click "Admin Options", then "Moderator Setup". A list of forums that you can assign moderators to will be displayed. Select the required forum by clicking on it. A list of available moderators will be displayed. Select the moderator you wish to assign to the forum. You must click the words "Click Here" to finish the process. Clicking again will remove the moderator from that forum.

    Up to this point, I have not had any specific number of posts required to be a moderator. Instead, the focus is on people who are willing to help out, especially in topics were there are fewer moderators. If anyone wants to volunteer to become a moderator, they need to contact me, indicating which topic(s) you are interested in.

    Not only status is irrelevant, but also post count. At most it's an indication on how active a member is. It doesn't say anything about quality per se. I'd rather prefer someone who is not so active, but hits the nail right on the head with his postings, than someone who comments on each and everything without having a clue what is asked anyway most of the time.
