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!

    Hey everyone haven't you heard
    New moon is looking for moderators now go spread the word
  • I don’t really know anyone who has the time to be a New Moon Girls moderator, but I think it’s great that anyone can be one!
  • 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..?

      It's a trial run with someone whose parent is a long-time moderator, and providing plenty of support/experience. Thanks for asking!

Staying Friends With Long Time Friends

I have this friend who's not on NMG who would probably like it if I called her Carolyn (that's not her real name). We met in kindergarten and call ourselves best friends, but we don't seem to have as many similar interests nowadays. I don't have many other friends, so she's really important to me. Do you know how we can stay good friends?-Jade     It's great that you have a friendship that's lasted that long. Even if you don't have many shared interests anymore you can still enjoy each other's…

Online Schoolwork Help

When I’m doing online schoolwork, it’s really easy to get off task. How can I keep myself from procrastinating?     —Anonymous  Hi! Procrastination and distraction are both things I’ve struggled with in the past, so speaking as someone who’s been homeschooled my whole life (not just since COVID!), and has *mostly* conquered these issues, I’ll do my best to help! First, prioritizing. There is only so much time in the day, so we need to figure out what are the most important things to do in that…

Staying Committed to a Story

I find it really hard to keep motivated while writing. I often am really excited about a story I start writing, but after a couple paragraphs I lose motivation and never continue the story. Any advice? -Anonymous I completely understand this! I am currently in the process of trying to stick to the longest story I’ve ever attempted. In the past, I’ve stuck to poetry and short stories for this very reason, but I’m trying to push myself with this project during quarantine! Here are a few tips…

Getting Through Quarantine Without Seeing Friends

How do I get through the corona quarantine without seeing my friends? -Sophia   Ah, the question of the season! I’m really glad you asked this, Sophia, because it’s a very important topic that so many of us are struggling with right now.  First, I would like to direct you to a blog post about staying connected in quarantine that one of my awesome fellow S2S mentors, Paige, wrote just a few days ago! She already did a great job on this topic, so this won’t be a super detailed answer, but you…

We've had many girls ask if their questions can be anonymous, and that is not possible on this website. We want you to know that girls in NMG can trust each other, even with embarrassing questions. And if you want to, you can change your user name to a "not real" name that will then also be used in the magazine if your Ask A Girl question is published.

Letters To Luna: I'm Luna, the spirit of New Moon. Write a letter to me with your opinions and suggestions about the magazine and website. I love to read all your notes! Because I get so many letters, I can't reply online. But a select few letters get published in each issue!
