Join the team!

 

If you think you would be interested in being the new Site Comments and Announcements Moderator, throw cookies, cakes, your hat, turnip, or whatever you have into the ring. Just be sure to make it clear that you wish to run.

 

Eligibility requirements include being a member for at least 6 months, and having at least 100 posts that are not in the Just for Fun or Welcome Lounge forums. You also cannot run with an active, current, warning.

 

Also, see the following for election rules:

 

http://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/90514-rules-and-procedure-for-elections/

 

Voting will be by a vote of confidence. A bio is required to be PMed to me by voting time.

 

This is the timeline for this election:

 

Thursday, 7 March to Thursday, 14 March: Nominations.

Thursday, 14 March to Sunday, 17 March: Dedicated Q&A period.

Sunday, 17 March to Sunday, 24 March: Voting.

For people who are considering running, remember that there's a stellar Training Team and a very wise and supportive admod team to help you out. :)

I encourage anybody considering to run! This is a great team to work with, and I had a lot of fun during my time as a mod. :) If you're overwhelmed, they'll be there to answer any questions you may have, and calm your worries. (Trust me when I say that; I had a lot of them, lol.) :P

You'll have to wait until August, and I'm sure you'll come around by then and totally want to run. :P

Things on the list of what I've missed during my adventures off AVEN. Apparently a new mod drama. Interesting, but isn't there always a new mod drama?

I'm pretty sure small election turnouts have been a problem for a while. This is even more true in elections for boards like Site Comments that require more attention and tend to get more heated. But, I've always loved Site Comments. Whenever I'm a mod I always like to poke around there, reply to people, and try to encourage other admods to as well. Also most of my policy ideas come from member suggestions in Site Comments. It might be fun and different than my usual board Q&A

Oh that is what site comments is! Then I really don't want to. The last drama was there.

I just noticed I don't recognize the names in Q&A. :(  How many times has Q&A switched hands since I left?

I confess that, after reading these words, I might be applying if I were eligible.

 

This will be my downfall someday. Curse you @Snao Cone and your devious suggestions! :lol:

Oh, you should Join HotBox if that opens back up. Speaking of heated, the one board I will never ever mod ever.

Site Comments can be quiet for weeks, but when it gets busy it usually gets heated. Keep in mind that this position is to moderate the threads; the responsibility to reply to member comments is held by all staff, so other staff will be on the lookout for potential problems anyway. The same can be said for Announcements, with the added factor that only staff can start threads here.

Is there a rule saying all staff has to reply to members in Site Comments now? I know I vouched for it a lot, but nothing ever came of that...

No, not a rule, but I know many admods try to keep on top of it.
