Recommended Posts

Join the team!

 

If you think you would be interested in being the new Just for Fun/Arcade 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, 25 July to Thursday, 1 August: Nominations.

Thursday, 1 August to Sunday, 4 August: Dedicated Q&A period.

Sunday, 4  August to Sunday, 11 August: Voting.

I believe that 6 months for me is July 31st - if I wanted to, would I be allowed to run?

Since your six-month mark is still (albeit barely) within the nomination window, I don't see why not! :)

@Road Yes, you should be able to run since by then you will have been here 6 months (remember 100 posts outside of JFF).

@Road Modding can fit around stuff, but it comes down to time too.

I will try to dedicate more time to AVEN this week and see how it feels.

Also, it's not like you need to post extra on the forums. Just as long as you're taking care of things that crop up, and do what you need in Admods Only, you'll be fine. : )

While it's not Q&A time yet, I'll let all who are running know that I intend to ask the same questions that I asked in the previous elections.  Feel free to look at those threads to give yourselves time to think about answers.

The admod training team is available for all mods, so don't feel like you'll be thrown in without any help. :) You'll have support.

I guess there's no harm in trying. I'll throw some delicious brownies into the ring!

 

Thanks for the advice everyone!

I used to mod JFF/Arcade/Chatterbox back when dinos walked the earth, so if anyone has a question about these or about mod life in general, spam my inbox :D

Are you allowed to nominate people other than yourself?

@Ardoise AVEN has a Mod/PT/DT encouragement thread, if you're intending to discuss someone whom you'd like to see as a Mod.

That usually gets locked during an active election to keep it from being a platform for pushing specific people for a specific election.

@daveb Oh! Right. I didn't really imagine that it could be used for that purpose; I thought there wouldn't be any harm if a member felt like saying, "I think so-and-so would make a good mod" (for a future election, not a current one), because it doesn't necessarily, automatically, mean that that person would then decide to run as a candidate (for a future election).

If you're curious what being an admod entails, click here for a theoretical overview or here for some tales from actual staff :)

 

JFF/Arcade/Chatterbox are great forumses to get into modding :D it's a lot to read, but there's very little trouble.

What's an average day in the life of a JFF moderator look like?

KYON.

I used to mod JFF and it was pretty OK TBH. It doesn't attract a lot of angry/controversial people and arguments are very rare.

 

It's a great spot for someone new to moderating. It's not a massive job and some of the stuff you do can be pretty satisfying. There's a great training team available (including my co-mod @scarletlatitude, who was a huge help to me) - all the other mods/admins are experienced and helpful too.

 

If you're on the fence about running, I say go for it! 💪

@Road So, you go through the threads, move anything that needs to be moved to another section. It's rare that JFF blows up or even needs greenied.

 

As mentioned there's training team and all staff are on hand to, to help.

Lurking the forum, occasionally posting... Just like I did as a member. It's nice when you frequent the forum a lot as a member... It for me basically didn't change.

JFF is pretty quiet if it comes to reports and actions needed to be taken.. It's often more only to move a thread out that doesn't belong there.

 

And ofcourse... Take part in the backroom.

Agreed. JFF is pretty calm. Lots of posts but nothing serious usually.

 

@Kyon. ❤️ miss you!

JFF doesn't feel like work a lot of the time, so it's quite a calm forum to mod.

Thanks for the responses everyone! 🍰


I wasn't sure if it would be easy since it is just for fun - or if it would be one of the harder forums to moderate, since there are so many active chat threads, and any one of them could turn serious without warning at any time.
