BellaOnline Moderators and Freelancers
To begin with, every BellaOnline forum area is tied directly to a matching BellaOnline topic area. For example, the Low Carb forum area is associated with http://lowcarb.bellaonline.com, our site area with articles, quizzes, and recipes for Low Carb dieters. Both the Low Carb topic area and the Low Carb forum are edited and moderated by a single person. In our example here the Low Carb editor is Lisa Shea. So Lisa Shea is the editor of the Low Carb topic area, writing the articles and sending newsletters. She is also the moderator for the Low Carb forum, making posts, answering questions, and removing spam.
This topic area relationship is true for every forum in the BellaOnline network. The forum exists as an extension of the topic area. The forum is a way for fans of that topic area to congregate and discuss the ideas and issues brought up in the articles. A single editor / moderator watches over both areas.
In addition to our editors, BellaOnline has a select group of BellaOnline Freelancers. These writers are indicated by the "freelancer" status beneath their name. They have been chosen for their quality writing to be featured in the BellaOnline forums. Often a freelancer has a special interest in a specific topic and will post all of her content on that one topic area. However, sometimes a freelancer has multiple interests and can be found in several topic areas.
To help ensure the BellaOnline forums remain safe for visitors of all ages, we have BellaOnline roving moderators in addition to our editors. While each editor is the moderator of her own site, and handles issues found in that site area, the roving moderators move across the entire forum network. This helps to maintain coverage on topic areas which are currently in between editors, as well as cover for editors who are on vacation. BellaOnline roving moderators are indicated by the "roving moderator" status beneath their name.
As always, BellaOnline administration is the top level of management over all BellaOnline systems. Our Forum Manager and Site Owner handle issues such as banning of repeated spammers.
