Volunteers get a different colour code on the Forum User Name and a tag saying that they are
Volunteers.  In addition, they get read only access to the Delete thread so they can monitor
what is being held in the three day delete period, and read/write access to the Forum issues
and Governance threads so that they can raise questions which are visible to the other Volunteers/Mods
etc.  Because they have reached a "trusted" status, their opinions may receive more weight
with other Volunteers/Mods than those of the random User.
