Types of Members

There are four types of members on the Art of Problem Solving-MathLinks forums.

  1. Regular member
  2. Moderator
  3. Administrator
  4. Bot

Regular Member

A regular member has the basic abilities on the forum.

Moderator

The moderator of a certain forum has the ability to edit or delete any post in that forum. Additionally, the moderator can split posts from a topic, merge posts from one topic into another, move an entire thread to a different forum and lock/unlock any topic. Finally, the moderator can make topics become stickies or announcements (and vice versa).

Becoming a Moderator

The selection of moderators is done by the administrators. There is no set process. New moderators will be chosen only when there is a need for them such as when a new forum is built, other moderators step down, or a forum begins to require additional supervision.

The process of choosing moderators is not democratic. There is no election. The administrators choose moderators based on their trust and confidence in a member. Being a good, productive member is the best way for one to improve their likelihood of becoming a moderator.

Please do not ask to be a moderator.

Administrator

The full-time members of the Art of Problem Solving staff are administrators. Administrators basically have unlimited power and complete jurisdiction.

Bot

The bots are screen names created by search engines that crawl around the website collecting data so that the Art of Problem Solving-MathLinks sites will show up in the search results of their engine.

Examples of bots are AskJeeves, GigaBlast, Yahoo! Slurp, Gamebot, GoogleBot, and MSNBot
