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 Hikaru Utada 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 am very active in this group, and I check almost every time I'm on CR. I often write on its wall and post forum topics, as well as upload pictures/ I'm a huge fan of Hikaru Utada and I also created and moderate the "Utada Hikaru Fans" group.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
I'm good at communicating with people, although I'm a bit soft.
b - How well do you get along with others?
Very well, I love CR's community!
c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
If it's something I'm concerned about or know enough about. I can give a pretty good argument, but I don't want to get involved in long arguments too often.
d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I can do both, although I think in this case I'd rather give orders. Usually I'm a bit more subordinate.
e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Again, it depends on the scenario, but yes.
f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I have been a huge fan of Hikaru Utada for three years, and diligently check her fansites. I created the first CR group dedicated to Hikaru Utada, and it is currently the biggest as well. I just love her music, so I'd like to at least be a part of moderating this series.

3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
I'd probably give them a warning at first, but if they're a repeated offender than I would report them to one of the site mods or shinji.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
My time has been decreasing lately, but a good 1-2 hours a day. Mostly it's just checking up for a couple minutes on my groups and whether anything has happened in the Hikaru Utada series page.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?

I can be on every day after school for about 2 hours, but it depends on the amount of homework I have and whether Heroes is on.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
School, and work twice a week.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
It would be great to be able to finally moderate a series, and a series I care about, so please give me the job!
