Announcing Site Chat Mods

Site Chat is a different beast than most of the rest of the site: it exists in a real time environment with very little "going back" in time. We've had a few instances of spam and abuse in Site Chat that have gone unacted upon simply because we didn't have a moderator presence at the time.

Because of that, we're introducing and taking applications for Site Chat Moderators. We're looking for roughly 3-5 responsible users who already use site chat quite a bit. Unlike other staff positions, what time you tend to be online chatting is highly relevant.

Site Chat Mods are overseen by and report to the Discussion Mods. Site Chat Mods will be empowered to give out warnings and short term bans (~48 hours) to users that need to be stopped in the moment (rather than retroactively), but the primary responsibility is to monitor the site chat. As such, for a user who already chats or lurks a lot, the responsibilities of a Site Chat Mod will not be onerous.

If you're interested in becoming a Site Chat Mod, please PM Zoraster with what times you're usually on site chat.

October 4:

We are looking to expand site chat mods team a bit and are looking for applications.

If you've applied again, please PM me again so I know you're still interested. We had lots of good applicants last time, but given the nature of the job, being online is one of the largest qualifications and that could have shifted.
