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 Casshern SINS 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!

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?

f - What makes you suitable for this position? I am dedicated and active when i want to be.


3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules? a mild 2 time warning would do but a third time wont lead to a nice outcome


4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll? I dont know precisely but i come on crunchyroll almost every 2 hours on weekends and i stay on crunchyroll for atleast 6 hours on weekdays.


5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours? I come on CR every day a week unless i go on vacation and do not have access to a computer and i stay on for atleast approximately 7hours a day chatting with friends and browsing the forums when i am not burdened with work/studies.


6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy? I go to school, have a study session, and have some other random responsibilities that i dont attend to everyday but sometimes and the amount of time they occupy varies according to how well i do them. I would say that about 8hours of my time goes into this section.


7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice: I would be relocating to another country on the 29th of this month and i may not have access to the internet for a month and a few days as a result.
