Thanks for letting me know. (i had been wondering!) Also, what about the moderators/administrators? How are they chosen?

Just wondering :ermm:

That's a good question, actually, and one that has never been asked here. This board was originally created by Alexandra Tomalonis, who is a noted dance writer and critic. It was called Ballet Alert at that time. She brought me on board to moderate the student forums. As we grew, we brought in Mr. Johnson to help in this area. We added new forums, many parents joined, and teachers, and as everything grew we needed more help. So, we recruited the people who we felt were the most knowledgeable and intelligent in various areas for our moderators. We added vrsfanatic to the Young Dancers forums and other forums too, as we needed another teacher in this area, and we have an incredible team of parent moderators and specialists in the areas of pointe shoes and health and nutrition. When Ms. Tomalonis decided to give up the directorship of the board, we had grown to the point where we felt two boards were needed, one for fans and watchers of ballet, and one for "doers", which includes the students, parents of dancing students, and teachers. Ms. Tomalonis appointed me as "Root" Administrator of the Ballet Talk for Dancers board, with Mr. Johnson as the only other Administrator. Mr. Johnson and I have added several new moderators over the past two years, and we now have a team in place which is, in my opinion, totally awesome! :innocent:

Thanks Victoria Leigh! I had been curious about that for a while!

And by the way, yes. It is a COMPLEATLY fantastic team. I am (literally) in awe at how you can manage to have so many interesting forums that are not only informationative and non-dolly dinkle but very well run. Many many thumbs up in my opinion. :shrug::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

While you're waiting for Ms Leigh or someone else, you can start with this link: http://dancers.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=6772&page=3#entry254096

It's a bit outdated; our mods are different now, some have been added, but this can give a basic overview...

ascballerina - Thank you for finding that forum, which describes the process fairly well; Ms. Leigh can expand from there as she sees fit.

 

P.S. I am the newest Moderator of the group.
