    CertForums is pleased to announce the new Forum Leader's status soon to go live on the forums.

    Forum Leaders is a new idea that we will be trialling over the next few months and it is hoped that with the contribution from qualified and experienced individuals leading certain areas of the site the CertForums community will be a more informed and knowledgeable place.

    As the name implies you would be the lead member for your chosen forum and would take lead by providing knowledgeable and informed replies to members queries and by making any improvements where they see fit that will benefit the whole community. Forum leaders will be given certain powers to pin, un-pin threads and create announcements plus other moderation type powers.

    Forum Leaders will be awarded the Forum Leader badge : [​IMG]

    We are currently seeking volunteers to create a team of forum leaders that hold expertise and experience in the following forums:

    • Gamers Hangout
    • Microsoft Certification Forums - Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS)
    • Microsoft Certification Forums - General Microsoft Certifications
    • Microsoft Certification Forums - Active Directory Exams
    • Microsoft Certification Forums - Exchange Exams
    • Microsoft Certification Forums - Virtualization
    • Microsoft Certification Forums - SQL Exams
    • Microsoft Certification Forums - Security Exams
    • Cisco Certification Forums - General Cisco Certifications
    • Service Management Frameworks
    • CIW Certifications
    • Professional Associations
    • CompTIA A+ Position Filled
    • CompTIA Network+ Position Filled
    • Training & Development Position Filled
    • Microsoft Windows Vista / 7 Client Exams Position Filled
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 / 2008 Exams Position Filled
    • VMware Certifications Position Filled
    • The Lounge - Off Topic Position Filled
    • Employment & Jobs Position Filled
    Other forums will be added shortly if this trial goes well, so if you have an interest in becoming the Forum Leader for another area not listed maybe waiting a while would be the better option.

    If you wish to apply to be Forum Leader of a specific certification forum, you must hold the relevant certification and provide a number of examples of threads where you have clearly demonstrated your expertise to the community.

    Interesting concept, I like the idea of these community managers for their experienced fields. Good luck to all who apply.

    I'm sure my wife would be glad to provide a fantastic reference of my expertise, experience and borderline laziness in the lounge 8)

    Added details about the Forums Leaders badge. :)

    Just to clarify, this rank is probably more like a moderator than an subject expert and it is expected that members will get assistance in how to use the forum moderation tools.

    Dont be put off by the posh wording, were not looking for somebody to answer everyone's questions and have inside out knowledge of a forum they run. If anything you will expand your knowledge as you learn with the role. :)

    If I wasn't so busy at work just now I'd volunteer for the Network+ role.
    If it's still vacant in a month or so I'll revisit my decision to hold off.

    I hadnt really thought about the possibility of this, I think that if the we allow forum leaders to hold more than one position it would have to be a related position as in both MS or CompTIA positions. I think that would work, I will make an update to accommodate this.

    I accepted an application yesterday but didn't have the time to make all the necessary changes and I didnt want anyone applying for the position in the mean time. :)

    Yeah, the default wont let forum leaders apply, I will change this when I make the update above. :)

    Cheers, Si :)
