Thread: Request for moderator applications

  1. #1

    Default Request for moderator applications

    The position: Applying Forum Moderator
    The role:

    • Moderators to keep things civil/friendly/no abuse.
    • The starter of a thread can specify whether they want the thread to stay on topic at all times. If this is specified and the the thread goes off topic, the moderators may step in to bring things back on topic. If it is not specified in the original post, the thread is allowed to go offtopic.
    • The goal is to keep applying a place where people feel they can ask questions and get an answer without being made to feel unwelcome.
    • No IRL info / porn.
    • Moderators to remove spam / bots.

    The process:

    1. If you would like to apply for this position, reply to this thread and state the fact you want to apply. You may promote yourself in the same post (once only) to tell people why they should vote for you to be the moderator.
    2. On Friday 23rd, I will make an open poll containing everyones names that have applied. People vote for who they want to be the moderator. As this is an open poll, everyone will be able to see who voted for who.
    3. On Friday 30th, the poll will be closed and the winner announced. The winner will be informed and I will train them on the use of the moderation system and staff forums. I will also announce who I will be choosing as the 2nd moderator.
    4. On Monday 3rd May, the moderator may begin their duties.

    I'd like to throw my hat into the ring for this position.

    I think applying should be a source of quick and pertinent information but be allowed to go off-topic at times (especially if mentioned, as Beer Baron says, in the original post per the new rules), both because it's fun and we often get new info that's really helpful. I'm not chummy-chummy enough with anyone on the site to give preferential treatment, and I can definitely handle a shitstorm fuck-me-in-the-ear if I do something people may not like, e.g. photoshop unicorns in place of furry bunny dicks (sorry, phenom) Thanks!

    You have nothing to worry about. He'd beat me down good. He always beats me down good. I'm scared of Cuntaphuck.

    My vote is going towards the most humourless, uptight nominee. Make you sissies rue the day you wanted moderation back.

    I'll go ahead and apply. ITIL being a helpful forum was what drew me here in the first place, and I want to bring it back to that level of helpfulness. I'm fair and don't have any major problems with anyone on this site, nor am I likely to have any with noobs. I don't mind making people angry to do what's fair, but I will try to avoid it if at all possible. I do enjoy a bit of fun, and I realize that off-topic posts can be great for making noobs feel welcome and creating a sense of community. Most of all, I just want that forum to be the most helpful and friendly place it can be. goloons for Applying Moderator 2010.

    I'd love to give it a go. I may not be the greatest choice for some of you guys: I will allow a bit of leeway with folks' posts. Spam/IRL Info/NSFW crap posted directly/useless abuse will get deleted/edited/moved under me, but I will exercise discretion in my moderation--joking and brutal honesty (and the occasional swift kick) will not be completely eliminated, with the exception of when, as BeerBaron has stated, the OP requests that the thread remain on topic.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    Question: how will you people currently in Japan get rid of the naughty porn stuff if you're at work? EH? EH?

    Cataphract will go power-trip crazy precisely because he has nothing else to do all day. Goloons is just loony and word is at least word. Word.

    Remember the days of 20 Dollar steaks on ITIL?

    With Gusuke at the helm, he will bring you back to the days of yore, when the 5 Dollar steak reigned through the land.
