Accepting Mod Applications!

Post

Hey all!

We are looking to hire a couple new employees to join the Soda Shop Moderation team!

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

What is a Mod?

The moderators of the board are the people in light blue, like this. Our current moderation team is: The Old Judge, T.S. (myself), Stella C., Arkán Dreamwalker, Eleventh Doctor, and Rosy. They are headed by the Janitors and the Managers.

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

Who may apply?

Any member who is above the age of 13, and has been a member for at least 3 months. You must also be in good standing and not be on disciplinary status.

How do I apply?

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

Application:

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. Why is blue better than red?
10. What is your opinion on bowties?
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)
WHATTHEWHATTHEWAHTWATHAHTHWAHTHWAHTHWAHTWHATHAWTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!

THAT IS JUST TOTALLY NOT RIGHT YOU ARE AN AWFUL PERSON AND SO DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!1111 :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(
Be sure to pm your application to me by the 12th of October!

We will announce our choices in the month to come.

*gasp*

They're extremely important in deciding your personality type and inner psyche. If we didn't know that, we wouldn't know if you would clash with the rest of the mods.

:lol: But wouldn't you want someone who is at least a little but different from the rest of the mods to to shine a new light on thing?

Of course! Different is always good. We just need to understand you beforehand.

Should I ask my question again or would that be considered spamming? :twisted:

Huh, your first post didn't show up when I answered the first question.

Disciplinary status means that you have been banned or warned in the past, or if you are currently under a ban.

Well, you can't currently be under a ban and apply, but if you have been banned before, just mention that in your application. :)
