Hiring New Moderators
« on: February 09, 2009, 06:05:41 pm »
Currently, we are hiring new moderators for the forums.  Duties are not fully determined yet, as we are still discussing what needs to be done around here.

If you are interested in becoming a moderator, please PM either me or Kit.  There is no application, no resume of any sort required, but do keep in mind that we will be reviewing accounts to see who may qualify.

Not all will be selected.  There will be a vote among the Administrators to determine who gets the positions.

-Please mention in the PM if you're interested in moderating certain boards (Example: New Members, or Teen Health, or Role Playing...)

Any other questions, please address them here. Thanks.

Do we need more moderators? Probably not.  But we'd like a few.  That way we have duties for certain people, so that not one person is doing all the work around here.  Moderators will not have "Do-it-all" powers.

The point is to actually have progress around here. If inactivity occurs as moderators, we will reselect a different person for their position.

Really... the reason we are choosing more moderators is to open the door for newer faces.  Once upon a time, we senior members had this opportunity.  We're getting older now (Most of us are 20+), so this is an opportunity for us to select people to walk in our footsteps... or not.

-That guy is Kit's mate.  He's a moderator because Kit is Admin.  Same situation was for my husband as well (At one point.)  He is reconsidering rejoining the boards as a moderator.

How many people have applied for this? I haven't, I think I'd rather stay a hum-drum member of the forum. I considered it for a while, but I have changed my mind since then. I have moderated other forums, but they were ultra-slack on the rules. No thread-merging and very little locking ever happened, and I was happy to mod that perticular site. I guess I don't really want to suddenly have to be strict on everyone, I like being 'one of the boys'. Even if I'm not terribly popular or whatever. I also don't think I have enough experience on this forum to moderate it properly. If I was going to do the job, I would want to do it justice because I like FT so much. But then, I wouldn't mind a more active roll either.

Also, I don't want to be the mod that replaced Natasha. Weather this is the case or not, it is a scenario that crept into my brain, and one I didn't really want tagging on me assuming I got the mod position - however unlikely.

Also, if you are looking for yunger mods then I'm definately not your guy. I turn 20 this year, so FT will probably become less and less relevant for me sooner or later. Hopefully later though. I should probably find a "We're not teenagers anymore, but damnit I'm still a fur!" Forum to sign up at. Meh.

Applied.

I really want to help out more with these forums. It's brought me so many great things and I'd like a chance to return the favor somehow. Good luck everyone ^^

Natasha is always welcome back to the forums, if she decides on it or not.

But, she was never a moderator, she was/is an Admin.
-Nobody- is being chosen for Admin until another steps out.

Flinch was promoted to Admin on her birthday.

BTW, I'm considering hiring about 3 monderators or so.  More than that have applied.  Some of the current admins have folks in mind they'd like to nominate.  Don't let this discourage you if you're really interested.  We might make exceptions.

Expect a decision to be made towards the end of the week.

I am the moderator of 3 of my own small groups but they're annoying me at the minute, and I don't think I have time time and I only joined here about a week or so ago... I don't really want to but teens as mods...? a little odd I think, what would the job involve?

You're just a moderator. Not much is involved unless you get personal feelings get in the way of your given powers. (Whatever they are)
