All moderators agree to a code of behaviour and ethical guidelines, and are available to answer questions about their particular field of expertise within the forum. Moderators donate their time in exchange for karma and benefits to networking and collaborating on projects under development for rain for the planet.
Moderators are also eligible for Rain for the Planet Membership, and can be nominated for Executive Officers positions to the board of directors of Rain for the Planet once the initial membership process is complete. The Board of directors will be voted for by members of the website and facebook group when we have 10 active moderators.
It is not mandatory for any moderator to be a Rain for the Planet member or Executive director in order for them to use the group. All moderators pay a small residual percentage of any contract or work gained through use of the site to help support Rain for The Planet as it Grows.
So by purchasing services or products, signing up for a class and supporting moderators and members, you are also supporting Rain for the Planet- and this money goes to support Rayne in her work, and implementation of the website, set up fees and administraton costs, all which take an enormous amount of time and energy at this time.
This list is updates as new moderators come online. If you are interested in being a moderator in the Rain for the Planet Group, contact Rayne directly.
