    Default Applications for Moderator being accepted

    We've had some people step down from the modbox or less active than they used to be on the forum and so we are taking applications. The duty of the forum moderator is to facilitate the enforcement of the forum’s rules. This includes recognizing and reporting violations of the forum rules, collaborating with other moderators on decisions for actions to be taken when those rules are broken, and then taking and documenting actions taken.

    If you're interested in the role, please send me a PM elaborating on your interest. Feel free to suggest others too. Thank you!!

    Note: Deadline for applying is Thursday at Midnight Central.

    Not applying but I really do think @Enthusiastic_Dreamer would make an exceptional mod for this site.
    I'll follow her into the depths
    I'll find warmth in the steel of her glare
    I'll hear music in the darkness of her silence
    Don't leave me there.

    @highlander I realize you wanted a PM, but I wanted to post this in public in the event that an overwhelming number of members say "no, Anax would make a terrible moderator," at which point I will accept that reality and pursue this no further, so long as they offer good reasons for why they think I'm not a good fit. I will not take it personally, so anyone speak up if they think this is a bad or good idea.

    Will you consider me as a candidate (assuming a lot of people don't scream NO)? I promise to do my best to be fair and impartial, even with those members with whom I disagree or haven't always gotten along with in the past. I can also say that several members have told me in the past that they see me as a person who tries to consider all sides of an issue and as someone who is tries to seek out the middle/common ground. @yama once told me that he respected me for trying to understand all sides of an issue, even though we don't always agree on certain issues such as politics. I know I had some moments in the past where things got contentious with me and a few people, but I think I've grown out of that and I don't really have any desire to ruffle feathers or piss anyone off. If enough people say they like the idea of moderator Anax, then I will be happy to send an official PM your way. I understand being a mod means somewhat putting myself above petty shows of ego and I am more than willing to take myself out of that; there's a good chance my average daily post count will actually drop if I become a Mod. I think this would be a good move for both the forum and myself. I won't let personal friendships or any animosity get in the way of treating all members as fairly as possible when carrying out my moderator duties, and I'll do my best to form a strong relationship with other mods and non-mods with whom I haven't always seen eye-to-eye in the past.

    What sort of daily hours would this entail for moderator duties and such? How many moderator positions are open at this point? I suppose I should also brush up on the rules in case they quiz me

    I second anax for mod. But then again, i usually dont even know who the mods are so i dont really have anyone to compare to except miss fortune and i like the way she stepped in to stop thread spirals. I dont even know the rules of the forum i agree with fair and help to analyze issues while being fair.

    I would be mod, but i cant really dedicate the time to this place between work, family, and life i get away and on here when i can.

    I like her style. I would try to follow some aspects her model. Bush Did 9/11 has also done a good job of maintaining an impartial but effective moderator style, IMO.
