[The following text applies equally to advisors]

In the event of the resignation of a moderator, volunteers are requested to
replace the person. The first opportunity to volunteer is provided to the
advisors. The newsgroup is consulted next. If a volunteer is still not
obtained, a wide call (soc.culture.jewish, misc.kids, appropriate mailing
lists) will be done. The resigning moderator may also nominate a candidate
replacement.

Once a set of potential replacement moderators is obtained, the remaining
moderators and advisors assess the qualifications of the candidates. In order
to remain in the set, the candidate must have two-thirds support of the
current moderators and advisors. The outgoing moderator has the ability to
veto potential replacement candidates for his or her position.

A vote is then conducted amongst the current moderators/advisors to select the
candidates that will fill the open slots. A candidate must receive a
two-thirds majority to be selected, and in case more than one candidate is
approved, slots are filled in the order of support votes received.

If the moderators/advisors are unable to obtain a candidate after one month of
announcments, the position will remain unfilled until the next resignation as
long as the number of moderators (advisors) is within the specified minimums
and maxmimums. If no candidate can be obtained and the size of the moderation
committee is below the minimum, an advisor will fill in until a moderator can
be selected, and a call for volunteers will be posted on a regular basis.

If it is clear that the position will not be filled, the moderators/advisors
will conduct a vote on the newsgroup to change the minimum size.
