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 nmgmembers.com remains the wonderful community and "safe social network" that NMG 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 fil 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!

  • 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.
  • 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!
    • Oh yeah ^^^^
  • I don't feel comfortable having any adults I know seeing what I post.

      The good news: the moderators stay pretty invisible, and don't talk with random people about what they read on here.

      I get that. When my mom first became a moderator I really wasn't sure about it. I did get used to it, but that doesn't mean you have to.

Drama vs. Empathy

There's a lot of stuff going on at my school right now - a lot of personal drama and just plain rudeness. Even if the frequent judgmental comments are not aimed at me (though they were last year), whenever it happens around me I start to feel a bit ill. I guess one could say I'm extremely empathetic when it comes to these things. I've talked about it with my parents and teachers but haven't completely revealed the full extent of it - I'm really nervous about standing up and I hate it. I've…

Operation: Support NMG Artists

In lue of the message board Julia created back in September (about NMG having a popularity/heirarchy issue where people feel unnoticed) I wanted to do something about it. While this is very common problem throughout all social media platforms, NMG is just small enough where we can band together and make a difference. Therefore I’m starting this “project” if you will to make the initiative to comment on fellow NMGer’s drawings (and other creations of course! But since art is my main focus,…

Dealing with Jealousy

“I've recently really been struggling with jealousy- typically having to do with my friends family lives, hobbies, or other friends. I understand how toxic it is to feel this way. Do you have any tips on how to avoid feeling sad for missing out and other things like that?” -Anonymous I feel you--I’ve dealt with a LOT of jealousy over the past several years. First, I wouldn’t think of feeling jealous on its own as toxic--rather, what’s toxic is letting the jealousy negatively affect your…

Feeling Like a Second Choice

“I feel like I am always the second choice for my friends at school. They always want to sit with other people or work with other people. They are not mean to me or anything and I think they do like me but I dont think they like me as much as they like anyone else. I feel like I am overreacting about this and I dont know what to do about it.” -Ellie Oof I know how you feel, Ellie :’( I’ve struggled with feeling like my friends’ second choice for years, it really wears down on you after awhile.…

Ask A Girl: Need advice? Give great advice? We help each other! Ask your questions or answer any of the questions already here. Your post will appear in a day or two, so check back often. 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!
