What is a host?

A host is a board leader; someone who is positive, energetic and supportive; someone who is enthusiastic and passionate about their board subject and wants to share that interest with others. Hosts keep Justmommies fun!

How much time does it take?

Hosting does not require a lot of time. On average this should only take around a couple hours a week. We realize there will be occasions where you will need time off to go on vacation or that you may have things going on in your personal life that require you to take time away from your board. We ask if you are going to be away for any length of time that you notify an administrator. As a host, we expect you to post on your board regularly and not just visit the board. At a minimum we expect hosts to post 3 to 5 new topics per week. Due to the high volume of activity on the Trying to Conceive boards, Due Date Clubs and Playrooms we ask that the hosts of those boards be active at least 3 days a week and make a minimum of 20 posts and 3-5 new topics spread amongst that time period. These are minimum requirements for hosting. The JM Hostís role is to be a leader in her Community and play an active role. We actively work with our Hosting team to offer support and guidance to help you improve your leadership role. However, we reserve the right to dismiss Hosts that are not meeting the needs of their Community based on member feedback or low activity level.

What are some of the host responsibilities?

A host should post new topics, reply to others and welcome newbies. A host should keep their board flowing and moving. Hosts also keep things organized by requesting stickies and subforums for their board. We also ask that hosts assist our moderation team by anonymously reporting posts that violate JM's Terms of Service.

We do ask that members are active on a board before they are added as hosts and for due date club boards that you are due in that month.

Hosting dismissal Hosts that do not abide by Justmommies Terms of Service may be removed as hosts. Generally, you will receive a notice and/or suspension before this would occur; however, this is decided at the discretion of Justmommies administrators.

If you are not meeting hosting requirements, an administrator will send you a hosting responsibility notice via pm informing you that you are not meeting the hosting guidelines and checking to see if there is anything she can do to help you. If you become inactive on your board for one month you will automatically be dismissed as a host unless prior arrangements are made. We are very understanding about family emergencies so please discuss things with an Admin if you need some time off.

Members must have at least 100 posts and be a member for 30 days prior to hosting. Members must also be at least 18 years old to host. Further, members who have had two or more infractions in the last 6 months are ineligible to Host a board at JustMommies.

If you are interested in hosting a board please send Rachel the completed Hosting Application which can be found here.

*If you would like confirmation that your application has been received, please send it with a read receipt request.*
