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 Fist of the North Star 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?
Yes I've watched this series so yes I'm up-to-date with it, I've not been active on this group but this is a great chance to get more into BR activity. So as for the group activity matter I'm sure it won't be a problem.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Strengths would probably be fluent or at least almost fluent english and ability to try to satisfy as many people as i can with my decisions. As for my weaknesses that would be women, thats all there is to it.

b - How well do you get along with others?
I'm social and i get along with many different kinds of people. I'll be able to reason with people that go against my ideals.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
Surely, should there be anything to get solved i'll be there to raise my voice.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I'd have to say I'm more of an ordergiver, i have no idea where that characteristic has gotten into me but that's me.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Not really, only on rare cases.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I'm a person who can adjust into almost any kind of situation, not to mention my interest for this kind of forum moderating.


3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
First off give them a warning, if that ain't enough a non-permanent 3-4 days ban would be a way to go. If the abusing goes further I'd ban the abuser.


4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
10-12 hours a day or more depending on day.


5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
At least 6 days a week, 8-10 hours awarage. But like I said, more can be possible.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I'm currently studying and to be honest that doesn't take much of my free time. Well as for responsibilities I do have to see my girlfriend but I'm sure that ain't a problem as for this Moderating occupation.


7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice: I'm active, mature, easygoing, realible and most of all I'd be happy to take part in something like the moderating you're offering here.


(EDIT: I haven't watched the series on this site, It was through another method of acquiring the content wich I'd rather not announce publicly )
