Some of our Series Groups/Articles are becoming rather large with the number of members and the amount of discussion being held on their forums. With this unfortunately comes friction between some users and their opinions that could continue to get increasingly hostile without a 3rd party mediator to keep things in balance. Our Global Moderators as seen on the Staff Page are not able to handle all of these problems so we are looking for users to manage these individual groups.

To apply to be a moderator of this Clannad Series Group/Article, you will be required to fill out the questionnaire below and post your response in this thread. Remember, you are expected to be truthful since we will be reviewing your past history on this site anyway. So it would just make things simpler for us to have the truth up front.

If chosen, your main responsibilities would be to oversee the activities on this group's forum, keep the users relatively happy and only intervene when necessary. When intervening you have to keep the Forum Rules in mind and not act because of your own personal views. Only when a Forum Rule is broken are you to take any action. People are entitled to their own opinions on subjects as long as they are respectful about it. So if someone says something that contradicts your beliefs, you are welcome to discuss it with them but you are absolutely not allowed to use your authority as a crutch to win an argument or punish someone for your own bias reasoning. Just to be clear, you won't be able to edit the videos in the series or do any mod related work outside of the Series Group/Article.

________________________________________________________

Note: If any of these questions are answered in a previous question you already answered, you can skip the question and say to refer to whatever question you answered it in.


This thread will be closed December 10th at the earliest but may be left open for a longer period of time. The moderators will be chosen in a somewhat sporadic fashion considering how many other series applications are currently open. So I'm not going to set any specific time frames for this.

Good Luck!

Ok here I go.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?

I'm not active in the group but I am indeed up-to-date with the series.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?

Well I have been told that my strengths are my patience, reasoning and strategic thinking.
My weakness would be that depending on my mood, I may be irrational and may jump the gun on some days.


b - How well do you get along with others?

I get along quite fine, as long as people are respectful.


c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?

Haha, yes, often whenever it's something I believe is worth arguing about.



d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?

I can do both equally fine, I don't mind if I end up with one or the other.


e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?

Yes, I'm very sure I am.


f - What makes you suitable for this position?

Well since I do know Clannad very well, and I know I can be reasonable, and I can lay down the rules when I have to, so I believe that would be an ideal mod.


3) Describe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?

Well I would say one chance would be enough, since if you do it on accident, you wouldn't make the same mistake twice right? Also, if you do it on purpose, I'm pretty sure you wont be tempted to do it again after the first warning.


4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?

I spend every other day on Crunchyroll from 4 to 8 on school days and whenever I wake up on weekends to late at night.


5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?

Hm, at most 8 hours.


6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?

School, 8 hours,after school programs,1 to 2 hours and a bit of house work which don't take much time up.


7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:

Well I don't really know what to say other that it would be a good opportunity to do some good in this community other than just taking up space and it would help me hone my ability to moderate.

Not Active at all in the group, Up to date with the series yes of course, and i'm finishing the game (After story arc here I come...)

Strenghts? ... memory, intelligence, and free time
Weaknesses... impulsive


b - How well do you get along with others?

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?

A lot, I can discuss a point that may be irrelevant, having themes such as the same Clannad as the center of our talks

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?

Depending on the orders I receive and what is the subject it refers... if it is something I know I can say better I'd like to give the orders... if in the subject I'm not really good at it, and someone knowledgeable gives a command, I'll follow... also I like order and structure

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?

A little, just enough for this kind of job

f - What makes you suitable for this position?

I have free time, I love Clannad and I have experience moderating in other kinds of forums, Clannad in Crunchyroll is something I'll never forget and I want more people to feel the same!


3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?

1st I would give them a warning... 2nd time would cause a punishment

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?

Like an hour a day, not continuous (not considering the time I'm watching anime)

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?

I could be in the afternoons and part of the nights every day, entering every half an hour... morning i could enter less frequently

I study, but I can use the computer while I do so... Japanese class 3 times a week for 2 hours each class

I really want to be more involved with CR somehow... and Clannad is a series I love so... I seem this as a good chance, many times earlier i wanted to apply for something like this but this is the first time I really think I could make some good for CR!

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I visit this group everyday, checking out the forum and photos and sometimes the walls. I really love Clannad a lot. Clannad is one of the best animes I have ever watched and I would recommend.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Strengths - Organizing the group often and visiting everyday.
Weakness - Usually when I am too busy, I rush through things and I don't help out :P

b - How well do you get along with others?

Depends; once I start talking to them, it just starts to happen.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
I consider myself to be in the middle.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I would rather take orders but usually when I feel that something needs to be changed, I give them

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Hmm, not too much?

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I started out to become a mod in each group. I train myself as mods so I can help out in the future.

3) Describe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?

First of all, if they break the rules, I first explain it to them and warn them they should not being do such things. If it keeps repeating, then I would PM them personally and tell them so they actually notice. If that does not work, I could easily report them.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
I am on Crunchyroll everyday. Probably from 7 hours during the weekdays and almost 12 hours on the weekends. But depends on holidays.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?

I will devote almost all my time on here. I am on 7 days a week. To be exact, I am usually on CR at 5 PM to 10 PM or 11 PM during the weekdays (PST) and usually 1 PM to 10 PM during the weekends.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I give updates to users, greet guests, help people in need, respond in forums, if people ask to PM them about something I will help, upload photos, update the group often and once I start doing these things, I usually use at least an hour or two. But if it's really long, probably maximum of 3 hours. But I still visit the group often and help out.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:

Well, I use my time on Crunchyroll often. If I become a moderator in this group, I will take full responsibility to do well. I have some experiences because of the groups I have joined and as a current moderator. I help people out and update things somewhat often. So, I will promise to do my very best. If I do not become moderator, I won't be too upset. I just wish good luck to other people. Another thing to tell you is that I really love Clannad a lot. It is one of my favorite animes that I cannot stop thinking of.

Im not very active, but i watched the anime of course.

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
My strength is my optimism, and my weakness is time management.
b - How well do you get along with others?
I get along great with others, but you should rather ask my friends.

On some cases, if it's foolish or stupid, but i'm mostly okay with things.

Both, give when i know what i'm doing, and take when i dont understand anything.

Yes, i consider myself stubborn, if its an arguement, then i will attack in many different ways of using words.
f - What makes you suitable for this position?
What makes me suitable is my love for Clannad, and that i'm pretty reliable when it comes down to it.

3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
First is, of course, a warning, then i would take away some rights (e.g. Topic Creating)

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I'm often around, but I don't speak up unless I have something to say (which honestly hasn't been for a while), but I'm completely up-to-date on the series.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
In strengths, I've been told I'm good at listening to others and their views, and I genuinely get a sense of fulfillment from being helpful so try to do so. In weaknesses, I hold slight grudges, am vocal about anything that I dislike, and tend to be quite vocal about my own views.

b - How well do you get along with others?
Pretty well. Like I said, I try to be helpful, and I don't expect the best from people so I don't get overly upset when they don't live up to expectations, which seems to help.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
Yyyyyes, but only about particular issues (which most anime-related issues aren't a part of), and my standpoint isn't -too- difficult to change in the light of a good argument.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
Difficult to say. I don't like to follow orders, but I don't exactly like to tell people exactly what to do. I still follow orders (if sometimes unhappily), and I'll still give them when necessary or for the best, but I don't much like either.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
As I said earlier, my standpoint can be changed with a particularly good argument - or at least have me back down on the issue with my own views intact - but without an argument like that, I'll cling to my own beliefs come what may.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
Well, I have moderation experience in several places on the web, so not only do I know the universal basics, I'm not as likely to accidentally overstep my bounds and will have a shorter "adjustment period" than someone with less or no experience.

3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
It depends solely on the severity. For the more common, less severe breaks, I'd tend to message them privately, let them know what they did was wrong and suggest ways to avoid it in the future. If it continues, a harsher, very clear warning would follow, and then punishments.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
Too much? Well, I spend plenty of time on the computer lately, and Crunchyroll is one of my few "regular check and browse" sites, so every time I sit down in front of the computer, I come here.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
Seven days at week, for a minimum of about three hours and a maximum of way too many.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
Job hunting, but that only takes up an hour or two on random days. If I actually get a job (I've been hunting since August), it will take up more time, but I should still end up with plenty of time to devote to any duties I'd have here.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I think that covers it.

I'll give it a try.. =)

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I am very active in this group. I visit it everyday and I'm up-to-date with it. I spend about 3-4 hours here.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Strengths--- I am ambitious and I'm easy to get along with.
Weakness-- I tend to doubt myself sometimes =\

b - How well do you get along with others?
As long as they are respectful towards me, then I will be able to get along with a lot of people. Also, on a scale of 1-10, I would say an 8.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
I like to consider it as a "debater". If the topic interests me a whole lot, then I would usually post my opinion about it.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
Depends on the situation, If it is someone who is in charge or more like a person who is in command, I'll take orders. If I am the one to give it to people, then I will. But I rarely like to boss people around.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Sometimes, not a whole lot like I used to be.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I am a mod in 4 different groups so I have some experience in moderating. I also watched all the episodes in both series.

3) Describe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
I would give the users 2 warnings before I think about a ban. Both warnings, I would send them a PM and tell them about why they broke the rules. If they keep breaking the rules, then I would have to think about a 1 or 2 day ban. Of course, I would consult a mod before I do that.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
I spend about 6 hours on CR.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
I can devote 7 hours at most. I can also be on 7 days a week. I have a computer class everyday, so I have a extra window to see what goes on in CR. On the weekend, I can get on for more than 12 hours. On holidays, even more.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
Other than school, nothing really. The usual 8 hours for school. I know, I lack a life =\

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I will try my best if I become a mod. I know this isn't a original saying, but it's true. I love this series and I'm a big fan, so this will be the ideal job for me. I won't mind if you chose me or not. I'll still visit here and be positive about everything.

None, I prefer to work as group and give my point of view to others, doing this we create or do something as a group rather than giving orders. Unless its needed.

No at all. I am rather a pacifist that looks for peace.

I'll try! XD

________________________________________________________

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
Seen the whole series, so not very active, but would probably become more active if I received a position.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
I'll do pretty much anything for my friends, to the point of almost being their slave. >.> But they don't use me or anything. I just do it for them because I enjoy helping them.

b - How well do you get along with others?
This is a toughy. I get along really well with others, but there's those other people that are down-right obnoxious. I try to put up a nice happy front, but if they cross the line, I yell at them, and walk away.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
No. I usually try to understand others view points well, but then again, will support my beliefs if I simply don't understand their logic.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
Take 'em. I don't like people who are bossy, but I respect those in charge. If the person is kind, then I will obey without complaint. Though, if they seem like they are telling me to do it just so they don't have to, then I will get irritated a bit.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Yes...Sadly. >.>

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I really enjoyed the series and would like to support it. I'm also responsible and would take matters into my own hands if someone else was having trouble.


3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
At first, I would give them a warning. If they continue, warn them again. The third time, I would punish them it whatever way.


4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
It varies. I don't really have a life, so from 1 to 7 hours a day... >.>


5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
On week days, about 2 hours. On the weekend, I'm usually free all day, but sometimes have somethings to do. I'm usually busy around holiday season as well, but can find a way to fit in some time if need be.


6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I am usually partly in charge of a lot of my school's activities. i.e. Dances, Special breakfasts, ect. They occupy about 2-5 hours of my time.


7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I'm am well informed, and a good researcher. I have good patients, and try my best to be respectful to those I wish I could just smack across the face. I can also relate to a lot of situations that people may be going through, since I've been through a lot of things.

i spend at least 4 hours a day on crunchyroll however i mostly check messages sent by people as well as checking up on the groups i am in to see if there any suspicious activities.


5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
i can devote around 5-7 hours a day but not constant since i must have breaks.
I can do it everyday since i am flexible with my time.


6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I'm a university student but that doesn't affect me that much since i'm flexible and do my work on time without clashing my cr time.


7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
i've watched the whole series already and i know if people post spoilers in threads where there shouldn't be any. I know when a flame war is going to start and can tell if threads are duplicated as well as pictures and videos.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I rarely visit the forums. I have seen all its episodes.

2) Question of Character:
a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Strengths : very patient, never take anything for granted, open minded, hardly ever talk negatively in forums about anyone/anything, open for discussion on anything

Weaknesses: less talkative when tired, do not like to waste time on issues I cannot resolve (is that even a weakness ?)

b - How well do you get along with others?
I get along with everybody and adapt to everybody.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
No.
First I try to put myself in the other person's shoes to understand if her/his behaviour is caused by something external to them.
Second, I engage discussion to find out the reason of the behaviour (unless it is an extream behavior).
Third, based on the answer, I decide if I should act further or not.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I take orders if it is part of my duties to receive orders from my superiors and if it doesn't go against my duties or against my convictions.
I rarely give orders.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Absolutely not, I am open minded to any discussion no matter what.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I have at least 6 years of experience as a forum moderator. As proof, go check me out at http://www.turbosquid.com, in the GMAX forum section. I am the prime moderator there.

3) Describe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
As everything is relative, it all depends on the circumstances of the act. I try to discuss with the person to find out why. If discussion nor justification is not possible, then I act upon it to give punishment (either myself or with whomever has the power to do so).

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
about 6-10 hours per week.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
About 15-60 min per day at least per working day and 1hr min per non working day (I have a very non standard working schedule). So roughly 5-10hrs per week minimum.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I work 12hrs shift with day/night rotation sometimes including weekends, on non-standard schedules. On my free time, besides living, I try to devote it to my career planning. I do not have activities outside the house (sports, clubs, ...) because of my work schedule.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
As I said, I have 6 years of experience as forum moderator.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?

I am relatively very active in this group and up-to-date with the series. I also edit using it once in awhile. I've fallen in love with this series from the first time I saw it, I've watched the anime and read it several times.

2) Question of Character:


a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?

I am very strong headed with can be both a strength and a weakness. I take any BS from people...which is also a double-edge sword. I'm patient enough and can usual tell when people are pulling my chain which could be a good asset. I have common sense, which at times can be lacking on a forum.

b - How well do you get along with others?

I usually get along well with people. I let myself to get to know people before I make any conclusions about them. I sometimes don't get along with people, usually people that give me a reason not to like them.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?

Yes, I do consider myself argumentative. I usually know when to draw the line and stop. I don't cuss with in an argument. I consider an argument, a debate rather than something I have to win. I try to keep a clear head.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?

This depends on the situation, I'll take order from someone more experienced than me with very little to no argument. I'll give orders if the situation demands it from me.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?

I am definitely stubborn. Once I make my decision, it is very difficult to change my mind.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?

My stubbornness and common sense, I know this series very well as well.

3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?

I will step in when people break the rules, give them a warning allowing them to stop the activity that breaks the rules, then take action. Most member are old enough to know when they are breaking the rules. They shouldn't need more than one warning.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?

I spend around 4-5hrs a day. I spend that time watching anime, on the forums, and playing in Crunchyland. I have the time, for the most part, to do this job.
5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
I can devote a couple hours a day, usually 6-7 days a week.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?

I have school, which is 8 hours a day. I can usually do my homework while on the computer so homework is not an issue. I have 1 day a week when I have soccer for a few (2) hours. I edit as a hobby, but that should not be an issue either.
