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 ON OFF 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 would have to say I'm not the most active member of crunchyroll. However, I do love this site and visit it pretty often maybe once or twice a day depending on work. As for being up to date on this group, I can be. I have access to many japanese culture/music sites so I can catch up pretty quickly. I absolutely love ON/OFF, and I hope to be able to contribute to their page on crunchy.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Strengths: friendly, even keel, intelligent, tactful, culturally aware/sensitive, laid back, understanding, firm (when the situation calls for it), dedicated, linguistic lover (Japanese, Chinese, German, Spanish, etc). I have been called into many arguements to be a mediator in the past, and I'm more than willing to assist.

Weaknesses: Not on 24/7 but enough with the life load I have been given.

b - How well do you get along with others?
I believe I get along well with everyone. I am generally a firey individual when it comes to things I'm passionate/interested in (thats not saying confrontational at all btw). So if you hit a subject I like I may discuss the topic with you for many hours.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
Not really. I like to debate, not argue. I believe in intellectual debates, not shout fests. If we can both learn something from the other by the end of a conversation then thats what I'm looking for.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I am able to follow orders. If emergency situation occurs when management isn't around, I know how to act decisively, and fairly to appease all parties involved until the powers that be can be informed of the situation.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
I can be, but with the computer as a buffer I'm less likely to show it. To troublesome to type it out you know.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I believe my past history of mediator roles, and working with people in my career make me suitable for this postion. Also I love learning, so catching up on any subject would not be hard so long as I'm interested. As I stated earlier, I love ON/OFF, so the desire is there.

3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
I would follow any policies Crunchy already have in place for such lowlifes. I would probably try to rectify the problem, and if that didn't work I would give them a warning. Finally I would talk to the powers that be, and get their opinion on the situation. Things would progress from there. I'm not sure if I hav the authority to ban anyone, but if it came down to it I wouldn't hesitate.


4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
I'm thinking I spend maybe 1-2 hours a day, maybe 5 days a week.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
I'm able to dedicate more now that I'm out of classes, so really I can be on here every day of the week. Maybe a couple hours at a time.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I work full time at a hospital (where I can usually get in about 1 hour in on crunchy), and I go to college full time until Dec 12, 2008. On Dec 15, 2008, I'm having an outpatient surgery, so I'll be home and online more often.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I feel like I can take on this responsibility and have fun with it. So PLEASE let me be a MOD!!!
