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 FT Island 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?
To be honest. It's in between. I watch the videos that are there, comment them, read the wall posts and look at the pictures. I don't usually comment in the group forum though -_-

2) Question of Character:
a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
I don't like taking sides. However, if somebody's arguing, I will try to make them no. No matter the reason.
My weakness...Ehm.. I think too much x'D And my english sucks..I think -_-

b - How well do you get along with others?
I'd say I do great. I love talking to new people and hearing what they have to say. But in real life, I'm a bit shy, but once you get to know me, I'm a different person.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
It depands on the situation. If it's something I'm really fighting for, so something I really disagree on,- I tend to talk alot.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
To be honest; It's both ways. I can't to everything by myself and having others tell me what to do sometimes is alright.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?

Sometimes x'D But who isn't stubborn at times? ^.^

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I've been a member here on CR for a while now, and my interest for FTI has grown through here. I think that since I'm a big fan of them, it's easier to take control and keep things quiet if it heats up. It's a group I'm interested in and a group I need to 'survive'.

3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?

Warn the person if the behaviour is breaking the rules. That should work..If not, I'd say that it's the last warning, and if it happens again further 'punishment' has to happen.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
I'm on CR the entire time on the computer. That's about 6 hours a day if I'm not having a lot of homework.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
As said above I'm on a lot, seven days a week. I think that in weekends I may be on more than on a regular day.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I have schoolwork. Since this is my last year before High School it is taking some time, but not that much to be honest. However, I'm oplaying tennis too, but that's only up to 1-3 hours a day (not every day though).

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
Not really. I think that you will choose the person who you think will be a good helper here on CR :]
I'm not going to convince you to pick me :]

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?

I come quite often and just stare all day at FT Island (can't blame me for that)

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
My strengths..hmm...I am a very positive person, my weaknesses, I believe rumors really fast, even if there isn't proof most of the times, but I would just tell someone straight away about it

b - How well do you get along with others?
I get on fine with others and I don't think I have ever argued with others on crunchyroll or at school

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
Nope, I hate arguments, I try my best to stay out of it, but if it is defending someone then I am good at that, but that's two different things. I don't bash others, either, that's just plain rude. but say if others are bashing someone then i would follow this belief "there is always two sides to the story"

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
Take orders, I'm too shy to give orders(otherwise I would end up being called bossy boots) but it also depends if I have a right to say something, depends of my position, say if I was a manager of a company, obviously I can't let my employees do whatever they like, someone has to be in control

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
nah, I'm friendly with people

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I love FT ISLAND!!! they're so cool especially because their friendship is so good, and they are just one those bands who never knew each other and just end up being put together, but the outcome became so good, and now they are loved by so many people.(*coughmecough*)

Also, I like listen to my seniors and following orders to make others happy

3) Describe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
If someone broke any rules, I would ask if they couldn't make the same mistake again, I would expect that this person should be dealt with and try to prevent them from breaking the rules. People should learn from their mistakes, so I don't think someone would be totally in the wrong if they broke the rules

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
ALOT!!! about 6 hours, I'm online everyday,

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
Everyday, around 6-7 hours, expect the weekends, for the weekends, it's like 9-10 hours

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
Nothing,totally free to offer help

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I promise I will be online after that 24/7 if I have to(joking) but I do come online alot and I enjoy commenting on the forums, it's fun when I get home and find replies from others

ALSO:
Good luck to anyone applying for the job! Like the person above or anyone below or just anyone really
