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 Big Bang 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!

c) I can be augmentative but only if it really affects me personally.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I visit this group everyday, checking out the forum and photos and sometimes the walls. I really love Big Bang and I have their news almost everyday. Not just because I am Korean but I usually find news about them online by coincidence or whenever I am bored.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Strengths - Organizing the group often and visiting everyday.
Weakness - Usually when I am too busy, I rush through things and I don't help out :P

b - How well do you get along with others?

Depends; once I start talking to them, it just starts to happen.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
I consider myself to be in the middle.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I would rather take orders but usually when I feel that something needs to be changed, I give them

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Hmm, not too much?

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I started out to become a mod in each group. I train myself as mods so I can help out in the future.

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

First of all, if they break the rules, I first explain it to them and warn them they should not being do such things. If it keeps repeating, then I would PM them personally and tell them so they actually notice. If that does not work, I could easily report them.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
I am on Crunchyroll everyday. Probably from 7 hours during the weekdays and almost 12 hours on the weekends. But depends on holidays.

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

I will devote almost all my time on here. I am on 7 days a week. To be exact, I am usually on CR at 5 PM to 10 PM or 11 PM during the weekdays (PST) and usually 1 PM to 10 PM during the weekends.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I give updates to users, greet guests, help people in need, respond in forums, if people ask to PM them about something I will help, upload photos, update the group often and once I start doing these things, I usually use at least an hour or two. But if it's really long, probably maximum of 3 hours. But I still visit the group often and help out.

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

Well, I use my time on Crunchyroll often. If I become a moderator in this group, I will take full responsibility to do well. I have some experiences because of the groups I have joined and as a current moderator. I help people out and update things somewhat often. So, I will promise to do my very best. If I do not become moderator, I won't be too upset. I just wish good luck to other people. Another thing to tell you is that I really love Big Bang. They're my biggest fan.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I am extremely active with Big Bang because I really do admire them and am completely obsessed with them as well. I try my best to find new videos and photos and upload them to share with others.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
My strengths are that I can talk to a person because I'm very easygoing. I contribute as much ideas as possible and I aim to success. My weakness is that I may lack some confidence because I'm sure there are bigger Big Bang fans then me

b - How well do you get along with others?
I get along with others perfectly fine because I show respect.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
No. But I will argue if it offends the entire group.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
Both. I will absolutely listen to what another moderator says but I will also give orders because I state my mind and I don't hide myself.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
For anime; a little. But for actual people; not at all. I will agree to like new things.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I'm a major fan of Big Bang. I try my hardest to find the deepest darkest secrets and everything I can about Big Bang to quench a thirsty fan's love for BB :3


3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
I will pm them because letting a fight out in the open isn't very leader-like. I have a template for rule-breaking users. I ask them questions, when they pm me with the answers I question them again and talk with them along with supporting details from the rule book.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
24/7~~ well, almost :] I go on Crunchyroll every single day pretty much.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
I will devote almost all my time to moderate groups and to research new information. I can be on at least 5 days a week and at least 6 hours.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I try to keep a steady schedule with hanging out with friends. School only takes up almost half of my day, homework is maybe 2 hours for me. And necessities like eating and sleeping take up only a couple hours.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I'm a very happy person and I want the people around me to be happy too. In this case, BB fans and members will be very HAPPY to know that a very cheerful person will be joining the leaders :] I often research about Big Bang and find videos, pictures and maybe even informaton like starring in a new drama or not; and I tell the people around me about it ^^

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
-My main strength is that I never give up! I love to make friends and I know my weaknesses very well, and I strive to improve on them. My main weakness is that I can't stop till I've reached my goal. Also, chocolate and losing weight >.< that's my main weakness lol...

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
-A variety of both I'm very versatile. Being in and Improv troupe in High School you need to deal with a lot of people and you can't always be the leader so I don't mind being either.

-At times, when it comes to school I always try my best. But, with everything else I'm pretty laid back.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?

-Usually 3-5 hours. I'm usually more active in the weekends staying for 4-7 hours (Arg, it takes like 2 hours to gain a level in Crunchyland >.<!).


5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
-I can devote 3-5 hours depending on what is needed for the group. I'm usually on CR everyday.


6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
-Well I have school, which takes 8 hours of my day, and that's usually it. So, I'm free most of the week.


7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
Big bang is my favoirte Korean boy band musical groups on CR ^^ So, I would be happy to be a mod for the group! If chosen I will work hard to make CR better for all! Thanks for the opportunity!

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I became really active for some reason. I check at least 4 of the Big Bang forums and groups everyday to see if anything happened or new videos coming or something. If I find some new videos, and news or pictures of Big Bang I would post them if someone had already haven’t. And currently I have 2 crunchyroll accounts HappyEm and Saranghaeyo_x3 so if u see different posts it’s the same person xD.

My Strengths: I don't really procrastinate. I'm nice and willing to be anyone's friend. I try to understand other people's reason's. I'm opened minded, and I’m unique. I’m happy person , fun to talk to, I’m good at keeping my friends/peers in a good mood and enjoyable person too.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
Both sometimes when I’m tired I would like to take orders from someone so that I would understand more what I’m suppose to do, but I like to give orders because I can make up my own orders and if I do something wrong I won’t be my fault because I gave the orders.
e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Somewhat, but generally not really.
f - What makes you suitable for this position?
Even though sometimes I might not be as active as other people are but I still think I would be suitable for being a Mod. of Big Bang because I think I can be responsible for this position and I can handle the anti-fans and the spamming in the Big Bang groups.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I'm very active. I come here everyday to check to see if their recent videos have been uploaded/upload any video that hasn't been uploaded, answer anyone's questions about them, since there are many people that are becoming "fans" recently, & they don't really know what's going on with them much, & I just browse through the forums once in a while.

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Strengths - I come by everyday & I'll keep most of everything in order.
Weakness - When I have other things to do, I really don't check at all or just try to quicken things up.

b - How well do you get along with others?

Quite well, but if someone says/does something to me that I just can't accept, then I might change a bit, but overall, I'm easy to get along with & it's easy for me to get along with others.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
Sometimes... However I don't really like to argue much so I tend to give up easily so the whole thing could just be over with.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I'd rather give them... unless it's concerning my parents (lol) then I'd take them XD

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Nope

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
What makes me not suitable for this position? OK, seriously (haha) I'm always checking/updating with the latest news of Big Bang, so why not? I'm also an experienced 'mod' so I can handle mostly anything ^__^

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

1) Warn them
2) If it keeps happening, PM at most 2 times.
3) & if it also continues, then I'll remove them from the group, then report them.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
EVERYDAY
It's a bad habit I must admit cuz my parents are always pulling me away from my computer, but I just can't get away XD

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

The time I have that I'm not busy. 7 days; Weekdays = 2:45 pm (central) - Midnight XD; Weekends = 24 hours haha

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I update the newbies, upload recent pictures (though I haven't been doing that lately), update what's been going on with BB... It doesn't really take much of my time... about... 30 min?

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
I LOVE BIG BANG!!
If it's any group to moderate, this group is my main choice. I'm pretty much obsessed with them, so I'm like updated everyday. Quiz me on anything about them if you don't believe me XD
I'll definitely do my best if I get chosen [:
