While moderators generally choose forums that interest them, they're not required to respond as subject matter experts to questions. Their only assigned purpose is to make sure the forum is well-run -- adherence to the naming-policy, moving posts that are off-topic, etc. We do often choose new moderators based on their contributions -- and, to be frank, based on whether we think they'll get along with the rest of us. For a site that is totally supported with volunteers, getting along is important. Bottom line, moderators are not expected to be subject matter experts. Obviously it helps with the more technical areas, though.

I just took a look around. many of the unanswered questions are about specific devices or implamentations. That makes is harderbecause of the limited number of people with J2ME experience, even fewer have used a particular product.

The great thing about JavaRanch is that you don't need to be a moderator to answer questions. Better yet, if we see you answering lots of questions, your likelyhood of becoming a moderator increases greatly. --Mark
