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 Strike Witches 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!

Hi Bk, I'm pretty sure you remember me with all your warnings and such.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I'm not really active in this anime series-group but I do know a lot about Strike Witches. I'm pretty sure I can give out enough information needed for this group if it doesn't have it already.


2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
I can pretty much obey orders from someone but not all. I can also work well in a group.
My weakness would be something like that most ppl won't get me at all if they're not close with me.


b - How well do you get along with others?
I get along well with ppl I trust and who I think I can trust.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
I only argue when I am forced to, I really don't argue that much.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
Honestly, I would rather take orders than to give them out.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Pretty much, yeah. I'm not gonna lie to myself about this just to be accepted, I'm a stubborn guy most of the time but I can do things fast.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I can do things like supply information and such to newbies and SW fans. Yep, I'm good with that.

3) Describe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
I'll do what most mods do and ban the user.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
Not that much since I'm still a high school student but I spend my extra time here.


5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
5 hours a day during weekdays..... 12 hours during weekends..... 5x5=25....12x2=24....49 hours a week.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
Nothing really.

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

I'm pretty sure you know my "flaming" habits but I don't take flaming when I'm serious and I'm serious with this app.

EDIT: New account ; xfreshii.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I'm pretty active with this group and I know alot about Strike Witches. Afterall, it's on the Top 5 of my favorite anime series.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
My strengths would have to be that I'm well organized and a perfectionist. If something is not right, I will keep on trying till it is right. My weaknesses would have to be that I tend to be anti-social at times, but that can change.

b - How well do you get along with others?
It depends how they act. If they act childish, I get annoyed, other than that, I'm really nice.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
I'm not really argumentative, unless someone forces me to.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I would have to say it's a mix between both.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Nah, I like to listen to what others have to say.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
Like I said up there, I can keep this group in good shape by keeping everything well organized and I know alot about SW.

3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
It all depends on what the user did. If it's something like spamming, I'll give them a warning, then next time they do it, I'll ban them.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
I'm on it everyday for atleast 5+ hours.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
On weekdays; I can devote about 8 hours, and on weekends, I can devote up to around 17 hours. I can be on all 7 days.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I help mod a few other groups that have atleast 5k+ members and they don't occupy much of my time since it's really easy to mod the groups.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
Thank you for taking your time to read all this. I have alot of experience with modding forums and I know alot about this anime.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
Pretty much active, Plus i also know a lot, but not as much as TriPad, Nevertheless, Moderating the SW series group would be a pleasure for me since it's one of my favorite anime.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
My strength lies in the fact that i desire more information, Thus gathering isn't much of a problem, Weakness is that i still have limits, But not something like moderating an anime series would give.

b - How well do you get along with others?
I share what i know and i listen to what others know, When advices and corrections are needed, I'm directly at the scene.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
Very much so.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
Taking orders, I'm not used to giving them.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Well yes.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
Being an avid fan and a person who knows a lot in this series, It's pretty much enough to say that i am suitable for this position.


3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
Warns first before ban, since some rules that are broken are most of the time unintentional, on the other hand, It depends upon the rules being broken.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
3-4 hours a day,


5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
Half of my time spent for CR.


6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
Editing most informations of the latest anime this season(like To Aru Majutsu no Index, Ga-Rei- and Rose Madder)

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
It wholly depends upon all of you, Seeing myself late for applying for 9 days and seeing 2 persons applying for being a mod in this series far more better than me, I know it's a hard match, But what i can promise you is that I will do my best to maintain, moderate and provide information in this series.
