23 There already are two levels of Moderator. Global Moderators that have
24 access to the entire forum and forum specific Moderators that only have
25 access to one forum ie. the language forums (the arch specific forum
26 Mods are all official Devs for that Arch anyway). The Global Moderators
27 and Administrators are the ones who would be covered by this GLEP and
28 be required to become Official Staff and take the quiz.
30 I have already taken the quiz in conjunction with another non-forum
31 project. You are correct, it was easy.
