How are Leads chosen?
There are several ways in which a member may be granted Lead status on their Nextdoor website:
The Founding Member of a neighborhood website is automatically given Lead status once their neighborhood launches with 10 verified members
In recently launched neighborhoods, the most active inviters may be granted Lead status
Members may be added as Leads by existing Leads in their neighborhood, based on their behavior and qualifications
In addition Nextdoor reserves the right to grant Lead status to members who hold real-world leadership positions within the neighborhood (e.g. Neighborhood Association or Homeowners Associations leaders, Neighborhood Watch Captains, CERT leaders) or members who have made extraordinary contributions to the success and growth of their Nextdoor website through quality contributions to discussions and successfully inviting new members.
