    Hello,

    One of my forums are growing and I want to have more moderators who help me manage forum better.

    Just curious, where are good places to find Moderators for your forum?

    Any shares?

    I find members from the specific forum areas who show good people skills and good knowledge of the subjects being discussed to approach as moderators.

    Generally, I've found good people to help as moderators. A few times, I've had to council and eventually replace moderators because someone got too "badge heavy" as a moderator.

    I also look to moderators to help lead discussions when discussions die down.

    When you start a forum, forget about moderators until your forum grows in activity. You can do it yourself and doing it yourself will allow you to become more experience at it and using the controls. When you finally grow your member base, look for those who contribute the most value and are mature about doing so and those folks will make the best moderators on your forum.
