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 Absolute Boyfriend 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!

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I read the forums and the gb (don't really comment on it though, i will start soon ^^) and it is on my favourite list so i believe i am pretty much up-to-date with it.

2) Question of Character:

I can say for sure that i am not one of the most popular people known on CR but with my buddies i do get along very well.

If what i believe is 100 percent right, i do become argumentative.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
Both. As long as what the opposition orders is reasonable.

My answer is abit similar to the one on c. If i know i need something ALOT then i will become stubborn.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
When i first started CR i made a group which gradually grew to have over 3000 members. To me this shows that i can be responsible and know when someone is doing wrong things. Also Absolute Boyfriend is one of my favourites so i know more then neccessary amounts of information about it.

3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
I would give them first a few warnings (around three). However if they continue i would block them from the group for a while but if they continue after the period of time of them being blocked i would i would report them.

I am on everyday for around 4 hours. (My exams will be starting soon so may be gone for a month but i hope that won't be a problem)

Same as question 4. Everyday i am on so i will check up on the group whenever i can.

Only school work and piano. As long as homework is done and i have practised i'm free to do whatever i want.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I do have another account and i did read the rules about having to pm a moderator about this but i'm not exactly sure who to tell. >< It is s2_sel. Also the group i am creator of is called "Avatar Makers".

Strengths: Dependable, Responsible, Practical, Resourceful, Helpful, Kind, Respectable (and toward others), Organized, Detailed, Stable, Patience, Cautious and Fairness.
Weakness: Sometimes Self-Relient, Possessive,..maybe Over-sympathic at times.
b - How well do you get along with others?
Very well, I am considered one of the nicest people some people know.. If I do say so myself. I think it's because I often go out of my way to help them. I have good humor, but I am a bit non-nonsense in business.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
No, but if a situation calls for some "straighting out" then I will engage in a discussion.

...Yes

I spend a great deal of my time here on CR. I love to the chances to "fix" or organize things that need to be done on this site. I have some expirence modding a few groups here. One group I "help" moderate contains over 700 users. We_Got_Married_Show I upload videos and pictures regularly and participate in forums, so I am very aware of the procedures and rules we follow on CR.

I am a stern, but fair "mod". I may treat the users as friends or sibilings, but I am not afraid to lay down the law, ^_^o I make sure everything is in order. I'll straighten situations that get out of hand. If there is a probmatic group user, I will give warning. If they presist then I will have to resort to banning them from the group. I am not petty, I try to respect everyone's views.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
..Good question at least 5 hours a day usually a lot more, I spend time, viewing vids, group activites, forum posting, editing my profile and what not.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
5 days a week, lol I am available on-and-off all day and night.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I'm in between schools right now and on holiday. During school I will still be available most of the time as in the hours described above.

Anime and dramas are my beloved hobby. I am happy to be devoted to maintaining something that ties into my interest. I would do my best.
Thank you for reading.
