Hello,
So, I have a question - how does someone become a "moderator"?
Since I've been on the site, I noticed that you grow in rank, so at first you're novice, then member, senior member , super member etc.
Some "moderators" have less translations, and thanks than other "super members" or "members". How does it work?
Also, some people have medals, such as "Best translator," "Best comments" etc, and other members whose translations ranking is higher do not have these medals...

Hi KseniaD! Here's a thread with some info on the different ranks/roles: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/forum/user-roles

As for the medals, they were given by the administrators after work week was finished as some kind of 'thank you' to the participants. Work week (which actually lasted longer than a week) was a program made to comment and rate more translations on the site, providing more feedback so to say...
See these threads: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/forum/community-work-week

The reason some people may have few thanks is because this is a new feature.
Members can vote and thank. But guests can't vote on our translations anymore, so now they can only thank someone if they like the translation (so they won't abuse the rating system, by giving low ratings for fun).

As for becomming a moderator, you have to become eligible for the role.
I don't know how much info I can share on this subject, so I hope one of our administrators might fill you in on it. Wink smile

Hi, simply deliver scores of good (or better:excellent) translations, then we'll see...

Приветик тебе, Ксения!
Мне кажется админы выбирают по следующим принципам:
* Как часто онлайн пользовател сайта?
* Как давно пользуется сайтом?
* Как оцениваются его переводи другим, и какие отзывы делают про него?
* Как часто помогает другим?
* Как обращается к новичком сайта?
* Как часто "здоровуется"?
* Какое у него терпение на ненужных и недоброжелательных комментарией, брошенные в него.
* Какими словами критикует переводы других.
* Как отреагирует на "врагов" сайта.
Скорее всего это еще не все. Мне кажется еще, и в его переводах и в его комментариях должны существовать определительные моменты, чтобы оценивать можно было его интеллигенцию. Отличительный характер в писании, объем знании, развите культуры..., если пользовател сайта это все смог передать другим, то и он когда-нибудь получить письма от админа.

А потом время от времени - но могу сказать, что не очень часто - админы предлагают другим модератором несколько "кандидатур". Обсуждается "дело" в модераторской комнате. И таким образом решается, к кому идти с предложением - принимать ряд среды модераторской команды.

Надеюсь ничего тайного не выдал.

Hi rakiuzo,

I was wondering if you could provide me an English translation of your answer to this question, as I don't speak Russian.
Thanks in advance! Regular smile

Kind regards,
Joe

Hi; Joe Regular smile

I'm not sure how does it work - becoming a moderator... Regular smile
My guesses:
Your registration to the site - at least 6 months?..
Your comments to the topics/transations are constructive, helplful, gentle?..
Do you inform a moderator/admin, when you recognize that something wrong with the translated texts, translations or site layouts/bugs?..
How easy you lose your control, when a user of the site "tries to drive you/others out"?..
How often you are online?..
How and how often you try to help others?
If you have got the "correct answers" to the questions like these, and moderators support your moderatorship, so you will be invited to the "moderator team" by admins.

Серьёзно, хоть сегодня и 1 апреля.
Мне кажется сначала надо разъяснить, какую работу выполняет модератор...
