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 Arashi 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 don't post much, but I read a lot. I'm up-to-date.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
My strength is I can distinguish right from wrong (most often). But it does not mean that I always do the right thing. Another is that I tend to stick to my decision no matter what, it rarely changes, which can be good or bad. My other weakness is that I'm impatient.

b - How well do you get along with others?
I get along to those who get along with me. If they have shown inappropriate actions toward me/others, I would never let it go easily.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
I think everyone does. At least on one point of their life. I guess I'm not that friendly but I'm not a hard-core argumentative person.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I would rather give orders, unless it's someone who has higher authority than me.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Yes.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I have experience in modding [a group]. I'm aware of the forum rules and I understand how hard it is to work as a mod. In line with this, I report threads/posts that are considered rule-breaker.
I'm knowledgeable of the band, through the help of various references like Wikipedia and other sites.

3) Describe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
I would give the first warning [like telling them the mistake they did]. Then second, another of the first one. 3rd warning: eliminate them from activities in the group for 1 day. 4th: Ban the from the group for 3 days. And 5th: Ban them for one week+

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
4-7 hours everyday.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
Please refer to no. 4

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
School work. I like multitasking so I do my school work while in the computer. Sometimes when I cannot do it without facing off the computer, I spend at least 30 minutes.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I'm responsible? LOL
I have been with CR for more than a year already so I'm used to the Crunchy environment.
I know how to use search engines and the one in used in Mozilla to find posts/thread.

I can be pretty stubborn if i believe in what I stand for, and I will not give up until someone has proven me wrong or that I found out I was wrong.

Honestly, I don't know. I just felt that crunchyroll has given us so many stuff and I really want to help crunchyroll, and I always dreamed of being a moderator. I also LOVE Arashi!

I will first give a warning. But if the user continues to break the rules I will ban them or if worst I will have to report them.

Everyday I spend around 5 hours, but not long enough to be obsessive....

I have homework which takes less than 15 minutes depending on what I'm doing I also have piano lessons which are in the mornings, which will be around midnight in the US.
