Moderators are subject to the same rules as members, and other guidelines used to help set an example for the members. This section outlines those guidelines, the tools moderators use to efficiently moderate their forums, an explanation as to how new moderators are chosen, and a list of reasons why you could be removed as a moderator.

Staff Forum privacy.
There are reasons why certain forums are viewable by members of the forum staff only. They contain sensitive forum information, and information that is not deemed "accessible" by the general population.

As a moderator with access to the "Forum Staff" category, you are trusted with the responsibility to not disclose anything posted in the Private Moderators' Forums. Failure to abide by this guideline may result in your immediate access removal to the Private Moderators' Forums, or your immediate removal as a moderator.

Fair Judgement
As a moderator, it is your responsibility to execute fair judgement. It is important for you, as a moderator, to be able to make decisions regardless of personal interest, relationship, or benefit. If you are unable to do so, then, you are unable to do your job to it's fullest. A major part of moderating here at PeugeotRCZforum is interacting with other members. You are expected to treat all members the same. IF PERSONAL INTERESTS, RELATIONSHIPS, OR BENEFITS HINDER YOUR ABILITY TO MODERATE YOUR FORUMS TO YOUR FULLEST RESPONSIBILITY, YOUR MODERATOR STATUS MAYBE TERMINATED.

As a moderator, you are required to be an active poster and visitor of the forum(s) you moderate, as well as a visible rule-enforcing figure. If you have not posted in 30 days, you are also subject to be removed as a moderator. Failing to inform the administration, and your co-moderators that you are going on a leave of absence may also result in your removal as a moderator of a specific forum, or completely.

Application of the Site Rules
It is your responsibility to not only be an authority figure in your forums, but to also be an example in all of the forums you visit. The members emulate the way moderators post and carry themselves, because they figure that everything you do is within the rules. If you violate the rules, you set a bad example for the members. You should be fair and even handed in your application of the site rules. You cannot take action against any member of the site for anything other than breaking the site rules. You may disagree with a point of view or dislike a particular member but they are entitled to their views and will enjoy the freedom of the forum unless said rules are broken.

Going Off Topic
Unless particular members are being deliberately disruptive, Moderators should simply gently steer the thread back on topic by participating in the thread. As much possible, Moderators should avoid telling posters to "stay or get back on topic". This is a social site, not a reference manual and as such it is expected and acceptable that some threads may deviate a little. There are exceptions and you should exercise good judgement.

Above all, Moderators are expected to be fair and balanced ambassadors for the site and should at all times be polite and respectful of all other members of the site, even when policing and applying the rules. The members of the site are your "customers" and the forum is better for their contribution. Remember that in all that you do as a Moderator on the site.
