Re: MODERATOR POSITIONS NOW OPEN. AVAILABLE UNTIL THIS SUNDAY!

Alright, peeps.

Me and Martin will be reaching out to some people over this weekend. There are some people who have a clear consensus one way and others who are more mixed, but thankfully, none we would discard to the 666th place in a ranked list.

To those who have a more mixed outlook, I'm sorry, but it's likely you didn't get through. I did say the decision was ultimately mine, but I wanted a group consensus, and although I didn't require unanimity, I did want majority so where necessary, I could break the tie.

In the cases where that wasn't even necessary, congratulations, you're probably soon to be a mod.

PM's will be going out soon. To those who applied and didn't get it, particularly if you applied at my urging, thank you for participating. It means a lot you'd want to contribute to our little place.

Re: MODERATOR POSITIONS NOW OPEN. AVAILABLE UNTIL THIS SUNDAY!

Also, since all 11 applicants so far have submitted a serious application, all 11 have been sent to the mod squad. If you took the time, I’ll give you ours.

Re: MODERATOR POSITIONS NOW OPEN. AVAILABLE UNTIL THIS SUNDAY!

My apologies for changing things again, but I honestly wasn’t expecting as many of you to take this seriously and apply for real.

I’m limiting the applications through this weekend only, because we genuinely already have more than enough qualified applicants with a group consensus!

So you have until Sunday if you wish to submit your application. We’re going to need more time to deliberate.

the injustice is that she was banned for no reason. No where in the rules does it state that personal insults are a bannable offense. Otherwise all of us would be banned by now
Your “banned for no reason” came after SEVERAL conversations, both publicly on here and privately through text messages, to drop the conversation and move on with his life. It’s funny that despite you, Nighty, and him ALL complaining about the mods, it was only him that kept going after the fact simply because he didn’t get his way about the identity of the mods he wanted to go after. That’s all that was. All he wanted was to know who, so he could “go in”. I didn’t give him that chance, but I did give him ample warning and opportunity to drop the subject. He didn’t. I forced him to anyways 🤷🏻‍♂️

Sorry but very much not sorry.
Oh I didn’t know there were conversations outside of the usual messy threads :cackle:
And PMs. And a lot of text messages back and forth.

If you noticed, I didn’t do anything until AFTER the new rules were published. You and Nighty dropped it, because what you wanted, which was for the merging and the editing to be more transparent, was accomplished. He didn’t drop it, because what he wanted was to mess and go after the mods (or, in his particular Avenue of Obsessions, @Data).

For those of you shaking in your boots thinking that if he appoints me, I’m using my position to “get back” at you. You are sadly mistaken. I am an adult not a high school student and to be frank, I don’t care as much about you as you think I do. You will be treated like everyone else.

Thank you and again, good luck to everyone.
And final decisions are mine but emphasis on the consensus from all the mod squad members.

And thank you to all 11 of you who have so far applied :)

Unrelated, but sure, I’ll take it. I banned him for a week and she chose not to return, I guess.

C’est la vie 🤷🏻‍♂️

Anitta wrote: Thu Apr 29, 2021 4:28 pm Hey Jorge,

Could you clarify if there are any minimum requirements or expectations? Like, say, mods have to be online for at least XXX amount of time every day? etc.
No particular requirements. We currently have a mostly North-America based moderation team, with Martin being the outlier. I would like one of the two positions to go to someone from somewhere in Europe, just so we have more or less all the time zones covered. HOWEVER, that is not a requirement either. Just be someone who is active on the forum, who will actively take the time to moderate and deal with reports as they come in, and who will hopefully want to do it for the right reasons, rather than just to get an extra tag on this place.

But genuinely: come one, come all.

MODERATOR POSITIONS NOW OPEN. AVAILABLE UNTIL THIS SUNDAY!

Hi peeps!
Since we have a site through 2023 (OFFICIALLY) thanks to your donations, it's time to fulfill some campaign promises.

Starting today, there is a new forum listed under aguilera/OT: the brand new Moderator Applications forum.

This forum will be open for the time being, as I am opening up 2 moderator positions.

If you wish to be considered for the moderator position:
1. Please create a new thread on that forum.
2. Please explain why you think you would be a good Mod.
3. Submit the post.


That's it. Your post will not be visible to anyone but me. If I select you as a candidate, I'll pass on your post to the rest of the Inquisitor Squad, who will offer their thoughts on any potential mods. While I am looking for consensus among all the mods, the final decision is mine. When all is said and done, there will be 5 moderators, with Martin and yours truly managing everyone as Administrators.

I don't have a time frame for this. I'm not looking for anything or anyone in particular, so I have no qualms about this taking a month or two days. As such, please don't message me asking for updates. I assure you all applications will be looked at in a timely manner, but whether or not you end up a candidate will not be known until the final selections are announced.

Racers, start your engines, and may the best applicant, WIN!
