I wanted to ask what exactly is the role of community leaders? What makes them different from those who don't have the title? Why aren't some people with extremely high amounts of helpful posts and yars (i.e Chrissy Th' Blesser, Valkoor etc.) community leaders? How do you become one?
If anybody can answer these questions i'd be glad.
