Moderator

A 'Moderator' is someone who has extensive knowledge of the site and what is or is not an appropriate post to the site. Since the administrator cannot be online 24/7, the 'Moderator' has volunteered to assist in approving posts made by someone in the 'Guest', 'Member' and 'Archive' usergroups so they can be placed on the site in a timely manner.


Administrator

The 'Administrator' is Barbara Saxbury-Freeman aka the Pike County ILGenWeb County Coordinator and can be reached using the contact form on the site or at Barbara@PikeCoILGenWeb.org.
