Staff Online Community Manager

As you probably already know, all content posted on this site is reviewed/approved (or disapproved, if necessary) by NMG's moderation team. Moderators are adults 18 or older (or, in the case of Sister to Sister mentors, 16 or older) who volunteer behind the scenes to make sure that remains the fun and safe online community that it is. Volunteer moderators are necessary for the existence of the community as it is.

And (as always) we're looking for more adult allies/supporters of girls to help out!

This is where you come in. If you you can think of anyone you know—parents, grandparents, neighbors, adult friends, other relatives, etc.—who might be interested in getting involved with moderation for this site, invite them to fill out this brief online form and they'll be contacted by someone from NMG about their interest, simple training materials, etc. You can also direct them to the Moderator Info page, which gives a basic rundown of NMG's mission and the premise of moderation.

Volunteering isn't a huge time committment (an hour or two on the weekends could be enough) for our moderators, but it does make a huge difference to NMG and this community. Plus, if you recruit any new moderators, tell us about it and you can become a Shining Star for your own contribution!

If you or any potentially interested adults have any questions whatsoever about moderation (or anything else), you/they can contact NMG directly, or feel free to ask me and I'll either answer myself or pass your question on to someone else who can answer.

If you know anyone who might be interested, many thanks in advance for passing on the information—and either way, thank you so much for being part of the community and keeping NMG going. You all are the reason why moderators moderate. :-)

You need to be a member of NMG Members to add comments!

  • Would it be ok if my 18-year-old cousin joined? She might not be able to be on super often. She probably can't do it though... Just wondering JIC.

      Apologies for the extremely belated reply! I don't know if you'll see this, but yes, if she would be interested, your cousin could absolutely fill out the volunteer form. We're always looking for moderators aged 18 or older, and it doesn't have to be a big time commitment either. :)

      If she would like to try moderating, we'd love to welcome your cousin to the team!
  • I'm curious why a new moderator joined that is only 14 (and not a S2S). I don't think this is a bad thing or that they should be removed or anything, but I'm just wondering why..?
    • Staff Online Community Manager
      It's a trial run with someone whose parent is a long-time moderator, and providing plenty of support/experience. Thanks for asking!
    • Oh yeah ^^^^

Excercising When You Don't Want To

I despise PE. I always get picked last in activities, not because people don’t like me but because I have no athletic abilities whatsoever. I can’t run, I can’t hit, I can’t do push-ups... I want to get better, but I don’t want to do these things when I don’t have to (I know it’s important to exercise but I don’t like it, and I don’t like most sports). What should I do? –Anonymous    Hi! I’m sorry you dislike PE and feel like you always get picked last, captains choosing teams is really not the…

TikTok Users Being Mistreated

Why are people who like tik tok so mistreated on NMG? -Sophia   I'm very sorry that you feel that poeple are being mistreated because they like TikTok! I can assure you that making someon's opinion feel unwelcome - or worse, making the person feel unwelcome - is never the intention, and I apologize if it comes across that way on the website. I think that many NMG members have very strong opinions on TikTok (myself inclued), because the company that runs it has many problems, including (but not…

Not Acting Yourself Around Friends

I have been acting torn for the past months because I act so differently than myself when I'm around my friends. When I try to stop, they get mad. I tried telling them how I feel and I wanted a...

Please Help!-Anonymous    I've always thought that friends are people that you should feel comfortable being yourself around. It seems that you…

Friends With Serious Problems.

Important, TW for mental health issues and mentions of substance abuse, specifically of alcohol by a minor.   Hi there, Just a warning this is going to belong because these issues have been bottled up inside me forever. So basically I have a friend who I've been friends with since about grade 3(5 years). She was always a bit more mature than me in ways-interested in boys when I thought they had cooties, wearing makeup before I felt pressured to do so myself. She had her first real makeout kiss…
