Could you say what forum volunteering involves and how much time you spend each week doing it?

I'm not sure about tech volunteering, I think that's pretty ad hoc.

Moderating involves generally staying aware of what's being posted, removing spam, deciding with other moderators what to do about posts or comments that other users have reported as inappropriate, and sometimes giving feedback to users about how they could improve their posts. Currently it takes less than an hour a week, but if the Forum gets used more I'd expect that to increase.
