It used to... I'd have to look around to see if it survived moves. Broadly speaking: Member. That's everybody. Even mods and admins. Hang out, participate, and have fun. Mentor. A member who is a better than average example, or who has special knowledge. We look for Mentors to help calm threads, explain how things work, and generally just be a positive influence around the site. Moderator. The first line of defense for the site . Mods generally help handle the function of the site, and help enforce the rules. Sr. Moderator. Generally, a more experienced mod with additional authorities and powers on the back end. Asst. Administrator. Even more experience and powers... but still the same pay. Administrator. You guessed it... more back end authority. More experience and institutional memory about how we've dealt with issues in the past. Generally, we try to run a model of "least moderation is best moderation" which is why you often see "friendly reminders" tp everyone before more formal warnings in a thread. Beyond that, we deal with the member directly, either warnings or point infractions. Too many points, and you get a temporary ban. We don't discuss actions against individual members with anyone but that member. So, if you report TrollofTheWeek -- we won't tell you what happened to them. And we reserve the right to skip directly to more serious sanctions when appropriate.
