New Moderator Needed: Just For Fun and Arcade: Nominations

Recommended Posts

Kelly

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, 26 September to Thursday, 3 October: Nominations.

Thursday,  3 October to Sunday, 6 September: Dedicated Q&A period.

Sunday, 6 September to Sunday, 13 October: Voting.

I will say that this is a good pair of forums to start with, for two reasons. Firstly it's rare that anything controversial is posted here, and secondly it's a co-moderated forum, so you have a second person, currently @Aris to talk to if you have any questions about a post prior to acting

Yeah, I sort of thought so, too, but, I guess many are busy returning to school/university or with new jobs, etc. to volunteer.

It's a co-mod position, so whoever it is won't be alone. They will have an experienced co-mod to help. :)

That is maybe a important thing to say in the announcement.

I wouldn't mind getting more involved in this community and being useful for once, but the last thing I need right now is responsibilities. Maybe later.

@Ice_bear You check your forums, deal with any issues there, such as any arguments breaking out or any spam posts, moving any threads that should be in a different section, and you participate in discussions in admods. As stated JFF is Co-mod. I was JFF Co-mod, so feel free to ask any questions about modding it or any other questions. It’s usually a relaxed forum and it’s rare for threads to need to be locked/greenied.

What's it like to be AVEN staff?

What a mod does

 

I used to mod JFF/Arcade/Chatterbox back when dinosaurs walked the earth, so if anyone has a question, feel free to ask here or blow up my inbox.

When would you lock threads and would it be inconvenient if you’re still a student?

@Ice_bear A thread would be locked if an argument has broken out and it's derailing the thread/if a thread blows up, and if a greenie from a mod or a red post from an admin has been ignored. 

 

Being a student is fine, no inconvenience. We're a team, so you'll get lots of help and support, and we have a Training Team also.

Ok thanks. Would you be able to resign from running for mod?

@Ice_bear If you run and then decide you’d no longer like to run for mod you can step out of the election. If you are mod, you can resign if you want too,

Ah, I didn't realize that you hadn't been here for six months, yet, either. 

 

But, in case you would like to run in the future, or if anyone else is interested, I thought I could help answer your previous question: if, say, an argument between members breaks out in a forum a student moderates, but isn't currently online to see it to lock the thread or give a green warning, then another mod will step in and give a green warning or lock the thread until you're able to look at it.

So what will happen if no one steps up now?  Will a mod from another forum do the job or will you continue the nominations until someone steps up?

Another mod has been stepping up to help already, and that will continue to happen. : ) Then another election will be held to try and fill it again.

If someone still hasn’t stepped up to be the mod will there be more elections at a later date
