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!

  • Hey everyone haven't you heard
    New moon is looking for moderators now go spread the word
    • Mod
      Love it! ;3
  • 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..?
    • 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 ^^^^
  • I don't feel comfortable having any adults I know seeing what I post.

How to Talk to Your Crush

I have a crush on somebody, and I really like them. I want to tell them that I have a crush on them, but I’m worried they won’t like me back and I won’t even be able to be friends with them. What should I do? -Anonymous Your not alone anon, that’s a fear everyone has when they have crush- and it makes sense! Your admiting your personal feelings to another person, being scared of rejection is completely understandable. First of all, if you’re not already friends with this person, try becoming…

Sleeping Over at a Friend's House

When I get invited to sleepover parties, I always end up wanting to go home before bed. Now that I am a rising 8th grader, I am starting to worry that my friends may find it babyish that I can't spend the night. Any advice? -Anonymous      I’ve had experience with this same problem before! When I used to often have sleepovers with my friends, I’d nearly always call my mom to pick me up when it came time to go to sleep. Eventually, I did start to worry that my friends would look down on me…

Preparing For Your Period

“I feel very unprepared about getting my first period. I don’t know exactly what happens and I am really worried about getting it at school. I wouldn’t want to talk to anyone about it and I don’t feel comfortable talking to my mom about it ahead of time either. Would I be able to just use a wad of toilet paper instead of a pad for a day until I get home and can ask my mom for one? Where would I keep pads after I did get my period if I had it at school? I just feel uninformed and unprepared and…

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!
