We currently have an opening on the moderating team. It’s nothing urgent, but would be nice to have one more person on board.
We are at this time especially interested in a new member of the team who is not a white straight cis man, BUT if you feel like you might have something to add to the mods team AND that you would actually want to do it, please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you feel like you participate in a lot of threads that you don’t really see any of the moderators in, you’ll no doubt be an asset to the team.
WHAT IS IT?
Being a moderator on DiS is mostly stuff like, approving/rejecting posts from new users, reviewing flags from the community (there are jokey ones and serious ones), changing the odd thread title, pinning an Important Thread, etc.
But sometimes we also have to put our business hats on and (attempt to) sort out issues between users, shut down Bad Threads, banning people, and so on. Even have to sometimes be quite strict with people you like and care about.
There is no «you have to be online for x hours a day» rule or anything like that. We do have a handy «How To» guide that @1101010 put together back in the day.
HOW DO WE DECIDE?
The custom is for people to drop their name if they’re interested, and then because DEMOCRACY we make a poll and the community decides.
Any questions? Let’s have em!
