Have you ever considered running for Mod/PT/DT? **The Encouragement Thread**

I second the above, but let's be fair. People have to want to do the job, and have the time to devote to it. You need, realistically to be able to spend an hour a day on a forum and admods, and be prepared to alienate friends when they break ToS. 

With the right mindset its interesting, you can learn things which help in your paid employment or learning, I certainly have, and there is that feeling that you are contributing positively to AVEN,

That's true.  I'm not anti-being-back-on-staff but I just don't want to be an admod right now :P  Certain staff positions are a lot more appealing if I wanted to run.

Site comments this last week would tax anyone's patience. 

 

I say 

 

"I'm bigger and bolder, and rougher and tougher, in other words, sucker  there is no other"

Kisa, when I was in the backroom, I saw you do a lot of great work for AVEN.  If you don't want to be backon the team again that's your call, but I think any staff position would be lucky to have you :cake:

Given what I saw of them just before I left in July, I'm going to have to second guess that.

I know what happened back there but i believe in second chances.I’m not going to second guess someone who decides to get back up on their feet after they learned from their mistakes.

Yeah, I know. Unpopular opinion XD

Blimey! :blink: Thanks Snao! :blush: I've genuinely thought about it in the past but I'm only really comfortable in certain areas of the site and not a fan of the whole politics and mod-bashing that I see going on. I think the reds, greens, pinks & oranges all do a fantastic job though and you all deserve medals!!! :wub:

 

P.S. The horror! I forgot BLUE! :blink: Sorry Cole, medal for you too. :D

Hey @Gldlynch I just met you, and this is crazy, but you're so encouraging, so run for mod maybe?

 

(If you do this now, it will be easier to win the election for Musings, which is a difficult forum, but I think you'll cope; there's one for JFF/Arcade too, but you'd need to defeat sea-lemon there.)

 

(I'm not a regular poster anymore, so it shouldn't be my business, but I'm still emotionally invested into AVEN, as plenty of nice people have been giving me insights that I wouldn't have discovered otherwise.)

Haha, this comment is very sweet and flattering but I don’t think I’m quite ready to be a mod yet. I haven’t even hit 300 posts so there is a lot I can still improve on. Maybe in the near future I will apply :)

 

Thanks for thinking of me though!
