Open Mod Casting Call

Post

Hello everyone!

We are holding auditions to become one of a couple new members to the Soda Shop Moderation team!

That’s right, we need a couple more mods (at least one), so we’re having an open casting call.

What is a Mod?

Well, the moderators of the board are the people in light blue, like this. Our current moderation team is The Old Judge, T.S. (myself), and underseasie. They are headed by yours truly, and Bren.

The mods are the ones in charge of finding violations of the rules in posts, taking care of them (either by editting the post or deleting it), and warning the user.

Who may audition?

Any member who is above the age of 13, and has been a member for at least 3 months.

How do I audition?

Easy. Just fill out the form below. Answer the questions truthfully to the best of your ability, and pm it to me, Belle.

Audition questions:

1. Why do you want to be a mod of the SS?
2. Why should we choose you to be a mod/what will you contribute to the SS mod team?
3. How often are you around? Will you be around more if you are a mod?
4. Have you ever been in power on a board before?
5. Are you comfortable with the technology of the board? How quick do you think you can learn how to use the Moderator Control Panel?
6. Can you enforce the rules firmly in a kind and considerate manner?
7. What are your favorite things about the SS?
8. Have you had any correction on any AIO forums in the past? (including this one) If so, have you fixed what was wrong?
9. Which pony is best?
10. What are your views on penguins?
11. Do you understand that it is likely you won't get chosen for the position, and do you agree to be a good sport to whoever wins if it isn't you?
12. Type out your warning to a user who posted this quote below: (hint: Be sure to list all the rules they violated)
OHMYGOODNESS THAT IS SO DUMB. You really don’t know anything, DO YOU!?!?!?!?!?!?!? :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x
Be sure to submit your audition by pming me by the 20th of September!

We will announce our choices in the month to come. :) Break a leg!

I'd audition but, ah, Blondie, you agreed with Garrett that I should be removed when I was a mod before.

(Not that I blame you. I did post a word I thought at the time was the equivalent of "darn" and it... wasn't. Among other scandals. ;) )

It's just a joke, the answer to that question really won't affect the admin's decision. ;)
