Boards Administrators message board

This board is a help list on how to use the message boards from the administrative point of view.
This board is NOT for queries, gedcoms, family group sheets, or other chart type information.

Boards > Topics > RootsWeb > Administrative > Boards Administrators

DO read the words of wisdom by Joan Young

Messages posted to this board also appear in the "" mailing list. RootsWeb: Genealogy Mailing Lists: BOARDS-ADMINS


if you click on Become an Admin you get to agree to:-

The responsibilities of a board administrator are as follows:

  • A board administrator is expected to keep contact information current by listing a valid working e-mail address accessible to board users on the Info page for the board. An administrator may also include on the Info page a welcome message and/or instructions for posting to the board, as well as any relevant links to Web sites related to the subject of the board.

  • A board administrator is expected to review new messages posted on the board to ensure they do not violate the rules set forth for posting; to remove those that are in violation of message board rules. The administrator is also responsible for removing a message when requested by the poster.

  • In addition, a board administrator is encouraged to take the lead in discussion on a board where possible, to assist users with searching and posting, and to promote interest in using the board.

  • Since activity from one board to another can vary greatly, it is impossible to estimate the amount of time necessary to maintain a specific board. However, it does not involve an extensive amount of time, and no special tools other than e-mail and Internet access are necessary.

I use a google site search to look for vacancies

Google Search: "become an admin" and add keywords

eg Google Search: surnames "become an admin"

Google Search: topics "become an admin"

I see Boards > Topics > Census > Denmark > General
still needs an ADMIN but
Boards > Topics > Occupations > British Mariners is OK

both boards were created at my request.
