Moderator Manual:Moderator Discussion Groups
There are two main discussion groups for Freecycle moderators, the Tech Discussion Group/FIOD and Freecycle Leadership Community. These forums are open only to Freecycle moderators.
Tech Discussion Group/FIOD
Tech Discussion Group/FIOD -- is a discussion group for moderators having problems with Freecycle.org. There they can ask questions, make suggestions and search for past messages to see if they can find the answers to their questions. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/fiod/info
If you are having a technical problem this is the first place to make it known or find out if others are having the same problem. Whenever you post on FIOD always include your Group name and Unique TFN Group ID number which are found on your Info and Options Page.
If you are not already a member of this group, send a join request to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Only mods on active Freecycle.org groups can join FIOD. Do NOT apply until you finish training and are promoted to Moderator.
