How to Become an MSDN or TechNet Forum Moderator
This article is part of the Wiki series: MSDN/TechNet Forums. To become a Moderator, here are some recommended steps:
When you become a Forum Moderator, you should read and follow the Moderating Microsoft Forums instructions and guidelines. Once you are a Moderator and experienced in the Forums, you might want to look at becoming an MCC (and continue down the path toward becoming an MVP).NOTE: The forum owners (most forums have different owners) might decide to make you an Answerer instead of a Moderator. It's very similar, but you focus on marking answers (honestly, that's the biggest need). Make sure you read the guidelines on Marking Answers here: Forum Moderation Guide: Managing Posts and Threads: Marking Answers.For more information about the differences between Moderators and Answerers, please see The Different Roles in MSDN and TechNet Forums.
The article is short and sweet. Make sure you go to the Wiki page, because that's where we/I will update it...
