A Temporary Moderator is a Moderator with powers in a forum for a set amount of time. They will usually be assigned to a forum if the Moderator is away on vacation or inactive due to events in their real life. Like normal moderators they can be seen with the red icon set below their avatar and their temporary status can be seen due to the hourglass image next to their name at the top of the forum. If you hover over this hourglass the precidented time of their promotion will appear, defining the date their promotion will end.
A Temporary Moderator will always be assigned to a member with previous moderating experience.
