We are changing the way we do Discussion Moderator applications: rather than start a new application process every time we need a new moderator, we want to build a file of applications of interested people so we can follow up with them when the need arises. This allows us to significantly reduce the time necessary to go from "do we need a new mod?" to "X is a new mod!"

Therefore, we are adding Discussion Moderators on a rolling basis from now on. About once a quarter, I will bump this thread and make it a global announcement for a week or so to get new applications. Please keep in mind that there is now no "turnaround" time between applying and hearing back.

Please feel free to submit a new application if you think you wish to provide additional information. Also, if you no longer wish to be considered, please contact Zoraster.

To apply, please PM Zoraster by answering the following questions:

The Application1. How long have you been on the site?
2. What are all of the alt accounts you might be known by?
3. How do you think the collaborative process for problems in the Discussion forums should work?
4. Do you have any recurring problems with any user on the site?
5. Do you think the Discussion forum moderation should be changed? If so, how?
6. Do you have anything else that might make you a particularly good discussion moderator?


Finally, please note that this new application process is only for Discussion mods and does not apply to Listmod or other staff openings.

Please submit a new application if you have not done so on or after December 17th, 2015

This is a sort of an occasional bump. We are still accepting Discussion Moderator applications on a rolling basis. When we have a need for another Discussion Moderator, we will pull from those who have applied during this process.

Please note that this does not mean that there is an opening at this time or that you should feel that it's likely you'll hear from us. If you've already applied, we have your application and no further action is necessary. If you'd like to update your application, I'd be happy to add the update.

Thanks!

This is your friendly reminder to PM me your application if you'd like to be a discussion moderator. If you've already applied, we have your application already. However, we welcome anyone that wants to update their application.

Please remember that this is a rolling process. At the moment we do not have an opening, but we want to make sure we have applications for anyone who wants to be a discussion moderator when one does open up.

It's been a while, so this is a bump to remind people that our Discussion Moderator Application process is a rolling one. When we have need of a new Discussion Moderator, we will pull from those applications that have been submitted at that time. So if you'd like to be considered in the future for the position, please don't hesitate to apply today.
