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 Nobuta wo Produce 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.

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

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

________________________________________________________

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 actually just joined but i have watched all the episodes and it is on my favourite list so i believe i am pretty much up-to-date with it.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
I think that my strengths are being able to help people with problems whenever i can and being able to know what is right and wrong.
However my weakness is that i am a bit impaitent.

b - How well do you get along with others?
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.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
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.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
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 i enjoy Nobuta wo Produce so much that i know alot 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.

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

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
Same as question 4. Everyday i am on so i will check up on the group whenever i can.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
Only school work and piano. As long as homework is done and i have practised i'm free to do whatever.

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".

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

~~i've known the series before knowing that there's a group dedicated to it. i really like nobuta because of the the actors and actresses and i can somehow relate to the series. XD

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?

~~i'm very naive and a liitle bit impatient i don't hold grudges. i am very friendly and very responsible and organized.

~~when it comes to certain circumtances, yes. i can be argumentative. but i try not argue with someone if i can help it.

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

~~sometimes, both is better. i mean, if the one giving others is in authority or the order given is reasonable, why not. if i'm in the position to give orders, i give them if its really necessary and will benefit others.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?

~~on certain occasions, a little bit.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?

~~ i am very responsible and i like holding responsibility for something that i really like doing. Nobuta is also one of my favorite series and i like to manage a group about it.


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

~~i wuldnt do anything irrational and harsh like throwing him or her out of the group. i would ask first why he or she broke the rules and i will analyze if what she did is reasonable or not. i like giving chances but once it exceeds, i would have to do immediate action about it.

~~everyday. i like to check wether my friends are OL, new groups, new dramas, etc. i spend about 5 - 7 hours online.

~~i can devote about 5 hours everyday to crunchyroll and in this group. i may exceed on certain days. this group will be a priority.

~~my responsibility now is to go to school and study. i go to school 4 times a week from 11 am - 4 pm. after doing school work and all the things i need for school, i go OL.

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

~~i'm not popular here and i have not created a group. as you can see, my cr points hasnt reached 500. but i'm very friendly and i enjoy a lot being here. like i also said, i'm very responsible and organized and i have good leadership skills.

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

I'm not very active in the group,but I have watched the series and am looking out for the second season(I really,really hope Nobuta and Akira will get together properly.. And I LOOOOOOVE Yamapi as Akira and wanna see more of him.) I am applying for a mod because I want to spend more time at this site and help suppart the site in whatever way I can.


2) Question of Character:


a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?


I speak my mind; I don't know whether I should consider it a pro or a con. It has got me into tricky situations at times when I have been honest in giving my opinion, but I think it is a strenth on my part because its charater building and, in my opinion, everyone should be honest about their opinions.

I hate people who lie without reason and pretend to be someone who they're not. I also dislike people who lack a sense of humor and I get irritated around them a lot. <----- that can count as a weakness, i guess..

I'm a girl, and all girls are weak around gorgeously hot guys. So am I. Especially those asian hotties who are just so,so,sooooooooooo pretty...

My other weakness would be my sudden urges to eat>.> .

What else? yeah, I don't know Japanese:( and my japanese is very,very limited but I hope to learn japanese in the future^-^

That and (if you haven't guessed by now) I blab too much. I have this tendency to rant on and on and on...

Thats it, I guess..

b - How well do you get along with others?

I usually get along fine with others. I'm an open, friendly person, and I will be friends with anyone as long as they consider me a friend.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?

Yes, when provided with a topic I hold strong beliefs in, I can be quite argumentative, even though I try my best not to express my opinion fairly while taking the other party into consideration.

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

Well, that depends on what kind of order I'm given or what I am to order someone else. For example, if someone were to order me to eat Cadbury chocolates, I would follow without question.

Really, it all depends on the nature of the order I'm given or am to give, but before I do anything I'm asked to, I'll weigh the pros and cons of doing what I am about to do and only follow the orders if I find it to be benifiting for myself and others.

I don't really like ordering people around, but if there comes a situation where I have to put my foot down, I would do it, but only if I find my actions benificial to the other party and all others invovled.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Yes, very but if I'm shown enough reasons why what I'm sticking to is not the best, I do reconside

f - What makes you suitable for this position?

*scratches head*
I don't know, really... I bet there are loads of other people who would be better than me.. but I'll do my best at this job, I'll spend as many hours as I need to , and I've got experience in handling all sorts of people (I worked for 7 months in a shop after my O'levels-we get 7 months off afterOLs in my country- and believe me, I've handled almost all sorts of people;sweet,old ladies who don't know what they're looking for, perv old men, and angry,pissed off people who seem intent on being on their worst behavior)


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


The first thing would be to contact the user via pm and point out what they have done wrong in a friendly manner, and explain why breaking rules could be of difficulty to other users as well as the site and ask them to refrain from doing so and abide by the rules.

If they continue to ignore the warning, I would send a second message, warning them of the actions that would be taken against them if they do not stop.

Further ignorance would result in more severe action on my part, and I would ensure that other users are not faced with any troubles from the user who is breaking rules.



4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
Well, that depends on my schedule..but I spend almost all the time I spend online on Crunchyroll.
On school days, I usually go on CR from 3 till 6 pm ,and then later in the night from 8:30 till I go to sleep, which would be around 10:00. On weekends and holidays, I usually spent most of the afternoon and evening on CR, usually watching something, chatting or posting on forum.



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

I can be on 7 days a week, a few hours everyday(depending on my school schedule,that would usually be around 5 hours), and more on weekends.


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

Other than studying, I don't have any other responsibilities that require much time or concentration.


7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I'm a hard worker, and I'm 100% dedicated. I may not be online 24/7 but if I do something, I do it properly and I will not deter from my responsibilities.^-^
