Re: compensation

Hi @PTKLENK Nice to meet you again.


Moderator are just like us with some additional options to help the community, like said  in my previous post no one is here for perks or for some kind of rewards. We are doing this as a service in our free time and many are passionate about contribution.


I just felt like like to share some tips which was posted by @Corrie 


  • Be kind, patient, and understanding. Help us make Local Guides Connect a friendly and helpful place to be.
  • Respect the moderators and each other. Local Guides is a global community comprised of many different languages, timezones, ages, and levels of expertise. Everyone is welcome. Moderators may remove or move posts, warn or ban community members, or even make mistakes. Assume everyone has good intentions and follow Local Guides Program Rules

Moderator are doing their best to help us and guide us here my friend they are not here for rewards of perks :)

Happy Guiding,
Jagadeesh Reddy.
