Mod offers have been sent out via PM! If you've received one, please reply - I eagerly await your answer ;P once theyve all replied ill list them here, or they can/will =P.

i must say it was reallly really hard to decide, there were sooo many excellent choices. don't be discouraged if i didnt choose you this time around - cr is growing fast and most likely will need more mods VERY soon! thank you all again for applying, you guys are awesomest~~


Wow, crunchyroll is getting bigger and bigger (and FAST!)

Our staff is sooo swamped right now, so I'm calling out to all you cr lovers! =D

There are 5 slots open - 1 ForumMod and 4 MediaMods.

Description:

ForumMod - review the forums, make sure no one is posting inappropriate topics, spamming, or trolling. You know, the usual =P. You'll be moving topics around, deleting inappropriate posts, and banning people. A ForumMod will also have MediaMod status.

MediaMod - review all incoming uploads to make sure they are appropriate for cr. If they are mislabeled or labeled unsuitably, you will relabel them so they are easily searchable and organized.

If you'd like to be one of these, please apply below! NO OTHER POSTS EXCEPT FOR APPLICATIONS! Applications are due DECEMBER 18th!

To apply, fill out the following:

1) Which position(s) do you want?

2) What makes you suitable for this position? Put your experiences and skills here (if any)

3) What type of cr videos are you most familiar with (anime, drama, etc)?

4) ForumMod only: what is your moderation style? How will you handle hostile cr users, etc?

5) How much time do you spend on CR? How much time will you be able to dedicate to CR?

As always, I will be reviewing your past activity (maturity in forum posts, number of uploads, dedication and willingness to help out, quality contributions to the forums, etc etc)

As a bonus, the staff will get cr star status, meaning they get access to higher quality vids!

glhf guys...long live cr!

1) MediaMod

2) I've watched my fair share of anime and other videos through my time, I don't really have any certain experience or skills but I know what I'm doing.

3) Out of the CR vids? Anime and Music Videos.

4) ~

5) That depends really, sometimes I come on here for several hours a day while others I only pop in to watch an anime episode or two. But of course, if I get responsibility as a Moderator I would increase my time here alot more and I certainly have the time so no worries there.

1) Media mod or Forum mod

2) I have Moderated many different forums in my time, and think I'm very qualified for either position.

3) Mostly anime and Music video

4) ForumMod only: Hostile users will be warned, and on second offense punished :)

5) About 7 hours a day are spent watching videos on CR (I have no life) and I'm full willing to dedicate more of my time.

/edit/
I also have experience as a webhost and in web design, im currently running a Japanese music forum.

1. Forum Moderator.

2. I always try to respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment. I have a fair amount of experience moderating philosophical debates and critical thinking.

3. Anime. Recently started to get familiarized with drama.

4. My moderation style would be one where I would try to be as open-minded as possible. Stating the reason why a thread is closed (besides the obvious ones). Every user deserves an equal amount of warnings (there are extreme exceptions of course) and I would also give a banned user a second opportunity if it falls within reasonable circumstances. I would never try to purposefully disrespect a user even if the user is being disrespectful, since that would be contradictory and hypocritical of me. Rights and duties go hand in hand and should never be considered separate things. If I want respect, it is my duty to respect others with the same amount of respect I demand. That's my style.

5. The internet is always available to me for most of the day, weekends and holidays included. I am aware that by being a mod dedication and time on CR would have to increase, but in my case it would not be much of a difference.

PS: Most of my forum posts are located on serious threads (the self, death, religion, faith, art, hate, etc.)

*edit: Since the next moderators are going to benefit the CR community as a whole and there are many good applications so far, it is only fair to state my weak points as well; because in the end what we all want are efficient and well-rounded members to collaborate and make CR a better place for all of us.

*I do not have experience moderating forums. (but this forum is not really that complicated compared to other forums).
*Since I am an Anime newbie, I suppose that I would not be of much help with uploading responsibilities. I state this as a weak point since I do not know how much experience is needed to moderate the media of this site. (but I'm willing to learn as much as possible in order to help the site).

Good luck to all the applicants

Hmm, I guess I'll apply.

1. Forum Moderator

2. I'm fair with everyone, try to give them the benefit of any doubt.

3. Anime and Game Video's

4. I was rereading what you wrote and I don't know what you meant by hostile. What I see as hostile as breaking rules repeatedly on purpose. I guess I would probably ban them for a day or a couple of days,or give them a warning, if its not that bad. If its extreme probably for longer periods, or permanently. I also try to treat everyone equal, no favorites, and I'm generally a nice guy.

5.Hmm, it varies per day. On some days, like weekends, im on for a very long time, on a weekday maybe 1-5 hours, I'm usually on the internet doing something, so I can add some time.

drama, comedy

depends on what they have done if its a spam post delete it and send them a pm about it or if its harrasment give them a warning and if it keeps up ban them

5) How much time do you spend on CR? How much time will you be able to dedicate to CR?
i spend alot of time (since computer class is easy and i watch anime at home alot) spend at least 3 hours a day on

Don't have any specific experience and skills but i can manage if it is only reviewing and relabeling.

3) Anime, Drama and little Music Vidz

5) Well, around 12hrs a day. I have plenty time to spare here on CR. I spend most of my time watching vidz here in CR.

1) Media Mod.

2) I think I'm capable of renaming and organizing videos. I've modded on many other sites before, and I've made sites of my own that called for organizing diffrent files and/or media. I have alot of spare time on my hands (especially once vacations hit) and I would love to be able to help organize things around here, which would help so many people out on CR.

3) Anime and music videos.

4) -

5) I spend a good time on CR, whether it be posting or reading the forums, watching anime, or in the IRC channel. The weekends, I usually dedicate my time in the night, and early mornings. Otherwise, anytime during the week it can be from the afternoon and beyond, minus my work schedule (that changes weekly).

1) Forum MOD or media mod.

2) I am level headed and I am not rude even whene people are hateful. The task at hand is what is important and fairness is important. Belive it or not I have matured on these forums and I do'nt spam any more.

3)I am familiar with mainly anime videos and AMV's.

4) I am a laid back guy but I can recognize blatant foolishness. If a user is new and does'nt seem to understand the rules I will PM them and talk it out. If it continues I will warn them. Repeat cases will call for a temp ban. A permenant ban would only be used in extrem cases.(such as posting inappropriate material.)

5) It's embarissing but I spend hours a day ever day on CR. I have more than enough time to take care of things and I would be very grateful for a position on CR. Give me a chance. thanks. (I'd say I spend from 6-7 hours a day on CR.)

1) Either, preferably Forum Moderator

2) Op-ing in the CR IRC chat and being on the CR forums a lot! In general I think I do well with conflict solving.

3) Anime, but recently I've considered trying some J-Drama.

4) The system employed now would basically be my moderating style. Warnings for harassment, excessively rude comments, etc. 3 warnings resulting in a temporary ban, continued problems would eventually would be cause for a permanent ban. Depending on the situation I'm more one to work with the hostile person through PM first to see if I could calm them down or just put an end to the argument/issue (a warning would still be given), but if the person was beyond simple requests to calm down they'd get temp-banned. Of course some different kinds of situations are subject to adjustments and changes, but consistency is needed. Overall, I think it's important that a good moderator/user relationship exists, not to the point where you let things slid of course, but so everyone on the same page as to why certain things occur.

5) Most of my after school time is spent on CR. If I'm not on the forums, I'm watching anime, and I'm almost always in the chat. I'd be able to dedicate a sufficient amount of time to the forums. Days would vary of course, but at least 2 hours, and as many as 6 hours. Weekends and time off from school would increase that. If I had the position whether I was very busy or not I would MAKE time to fulfill my responsibility.

Thanks for the vote Faeleia! ^_^, and good luck to everyone else with apps!

1) forum mod

2) two previous mod posts. One was at a small site that eventually dwindled off to nothingness. This one was modded by me alone.Second was at a much bigger site.This one was killed for copyright infringement (I did warn them!). It was similar to the one here. I modded it with seven others and it was larger than this one was. I am also always on the IRC and have a gist how things are done here so I am sure I will fit right in

3) Anime and AMV's- prefered action and comedy. not exactly a long watcher (yes I am a noob on many topics when it comes to anime, but I am learning and will change my ava as soon as I finish making the new one)

4)I am a little laid back. I do not go around looking for people to warn nor threads to close but if I see it then I will close them. If it is a warning then I will usually make sure one of the other Mods has PMed them about this before and if not (new or never on forum) then I will first before I give them warnings. I am willing to make exceptions such as harrassment, inappropiate pics, prejudicial remarks or racist ones, and other cases. I would basically keep the ones we have here going. I think mods and the users should get along though so would definitely not be caught abusing my power. I believe until they make an offense we are equals. Also may be willing to give a second chance.

5)I spend several hours on CR. At least 3 hours of checking in would be done. If I dont have lots of school or homework this number will increase of course. I also spend a large amount of time on the IRC.

I havent done anything such as spam, flame, or such in a long time and even most debates have been ended between me and whoever I quarelled with. I am very unbiased, responsible, and willing to take the initiative. Even though I have never uploaded (this is because i am still a little new to anime and am not sure how to get it but I am working on that!). I am basically willing to do what you say and also am very dedicated to projects and such. So I hope you will take me into consideration. LONG LIVE CRUNCHYROLL!
