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 Kat tun 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.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-13504/CR-Forum-Rules-Updated-06-28-2008.html

________________________________________________________

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


2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?

b - How well do you get along with others?

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?

f - What makes you suitable for this position?


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


4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?


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


6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?


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

________________________________________________________

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) I'm up-to-date on Kat-Tun but I tend to lack the background information. I just found out yesterday about the Jin-thing about him dating a 14 year old and so he was suspended aka went studying abroad. That rumor makes no sense to me but that’s just an example of how I’m one of their new fans and how some stuff can go over my head. But, its the internet! Its easy to get up-to-date on what one is ignorant one.

How active am I? I don't know. If i see the word "Jin" in a forum, I’m all in it. But, I usually attempt to not go into threads I have nothing good to say about (Maru).

2.
A) Language would be my strength and weakness. I believe that every needs a voice and opinion and i have a strong belief in.. well, me knowing how to express mine. But, its also a weakness because there are times I just shut down. But, that rarely happens. It never fun to debate when you're not even trying.

B) I’ve meet people I don’t like but most people I can, at least, become acquaintances with. So far, I will say I’m good with 80% of the world population!

C) I’m all for an debate; I’m all for heated debate. But I wouldn’t say I am argumentative mainly because I like it when people agree. But, I can be a bit argumentative if its like… my sister. But that’s natural, she needs to know her boundaries and stay out my stuff. Other people, they don’t know these things.

D) I’m a mixture. Some times I’m not in the mood for one or the other. If you were to ask someone else this question in terms of myself they would probably say “She doesn’t like following other peoples orders” but that’s only because people tend to remember “no” more then “yes”.

E) Oh yes. I’m stubborn. I don’t know why or what makes me stubborn but when you hear “Dude, why are you so stubborn?” a lot you start to agree.

F) Questions like these are hard to answer! All I can say is that I can do the job well.

3. Being a maverick, I can’t always talk about myself perfectly but I can say that I would no way be a stick in the mud. I’ve been on a lot of forums and have dealt with a lot of forum/article mods. The thing is, the best one isn’t the one beating down every single door. it’s the one that fights the right fights. So, while people will be compensated (punished sounded evil) when needed, they will also only get what they deserve (which sounds very evil..).

4. I’m willing to say i spend too much time one at times. I just finished watching 200 pounds of beauty and to be honest, I should have been doing my extra credit work. But, CrunchyRoll is my break when I have too much homework and too little time to do anything productive like go out and stimulate the economy by shopping.

5 and 6. With school, I will be online just about everyday. School usually has be on the computer working and it gets boring doing it all at once and CrunchyRoll is one of my main places to go when it does get boring. On the weekends it can be a bit flamboyant. Sundays and Saturdays, are usually the days I dedicate my self to a lot of Japanese in hopes of once-again getting re-familiarized with the accent and language. So, one those days, at some point and time, I will be on crunchy roll. That is, unless I have the RAWs on my computer. During those times, I won’t be able to spend as much time as I could of the weekdays but I am still active.

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I`m not Very Active As I`m in the other groups of KAT-TUN but i`ll do my best to work on this group too

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
hmmm in general :Too Nice & Generous
My strength : Wise ,open minded person, I do listen to people's opinion before I can make a judgment about that person/issue. I'm also very self-confidence with everything that I do, I will never do anything if I don't have faith or confidence in it.
my weakness : i dont know i`m too nice , I dont like those who bash w/o reason so i`ll try to avoid that from happening

b - How well do you get along with others?
i guess i get along with them pretty well since i care for them & they do for me too so i guess the group is our family gathering ne plus my friends who are fans too are more like my family now
c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
hmm it depends i need to listen & think before i judge but if i need to oppose i will with reason
If you have the ability to moderate when you employ this quality ,it can come in very handy to be able to argue your case effectively.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
i`m more into leading so giving order is something i do but in the same time i love to discus matters with other mods or members ! Team work is better than being bossy or work alone
e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
Yes I am stubborn & i think it`s necessary to be one but if i need to let my stubbornness for a good out come i may do so
f - What makes you suitable for this position?
hmm i don't know i think cause Cr is the first place i became a mod in & i managed it to do my work here
i`m willing to do my best for this group since i may not be the biggest fan of KAT-TUN but one of their loyal ones that i would do my job with Passion
plus my crunchyroll experience
- I`m moderator in KAT-TUN groups than others so updating would be easy
*As a moderator .: leadership, responsibility, maturity, respect, trustworthy person, and dedication to make the group as good as possible .
love helping people and are looking for an outlet to contribute. a mod `s dream are :
An active group, and they love seeing their communities blossom.
become an active moderator who has tremendous influence over the type of community that evolves & recognized by their leadership .


3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
i hope that wont come since i wanna make everyone enjoy & treat all the members equally
I'll make sure the community members follow those rules, most of this will be pretty obvious — no spam, no sexual content, no harassing people, .etc
but its impossible not to see ppl who beak the rules
first i`ll study the situation that has been broken & alert the members about the rules & what`s have been broken in the group
mistakes may be made so that`s why a person will be warned before being punished
3 warnings before! Where necessary I will explain to people why their comments have been edited or deleted to better educate them on how to be good members of a forum/group. Most importantly I will not falter under the pressure of the masses if I know what I am doing is right. .


4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
hmm too many 9-10 hours weekends ,online daily except if i`m busy i`ll be 4-5 hours
sometimes all day


5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
it depends on my schedule or my connection sometime all week
except for 2 days


6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?

my studies & house chores it takes some of my time
I`m a mod in many cr groups most of akanishi groups ,onoff,garra ,nakamaru,kattunlove,paran,friend&only je so it wont affect being a mod here too since most of the group mod is about KAT-TUN


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

hmm its not my first time being a moderator in cr so i have expirenced it & i`m aware if the stuff to do so the only new thing is being in a main group as one of the music artist section
so if there`s some stuff or information i should know let me know
- i`m most active in Cr than any other sites like myspace or facebook cause i`m intrested in Cr more
- i`ll do my best to be a mod who does her job well

thank you for reading

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
I guess I am pretty active, I usually check everyday for new videos and such, and I am up to date with videos and information and everything.

2) Question of Character:
a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?

Strengths: Learning languages, designing, web design.
Weaknesses: Being really lenient at times.

b - How well do you get along with others?
I'd say I can get along well with people online and everything, but I'm usually shy in person.
c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
I wouldn't consider myself to be argumentative, I'm not that good in debating my point across to others and such.
d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I think I would rather take orders, because I don't have to decide anything for myself. But if i do need to give orders, I do.
e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
I think I can be stubborn if i don't get my way, but that only usually happens with my parents.
f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I think I would be suitable for this position because I am up to date with KAT-TUN's latest news and information and such, I've also had moderation responsibilities on other sites so I would know how to deal with things.

3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
If somebody did break the rules, I would tell them first in the forums or whereever they broke the rules, and also pm them saying the same thing as well.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
It depends, if there's new videos or a series I'm watching I could stay on for 6-8 hours. But usually it's a few hours a day.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
I can devote as much time as possible or that is needed. I usually come online everyday for 1-2 hours.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I don't have many responsibilities, but at school I am one of the middle school captains, I don't have alot of work or anything to do, just organising activity days and such. I don't know if that counts for anything ><"

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
This would be my first time applying to be a CR mod, so I would be kinda new to some stuff, but I'm willing to learn~ thanks for considering my application :D

1) How active are you in this group and are you up-to-date with the series?
As Inactive as it seems I am in this group, I check it very often for the newest in CR

2) Question of Character:

a - What are your strengths and weaknesses?
I talk it out, as in with issues, if it can be solved with words it's the best to handle a situation. I'm friendly, at least I consider myself a friendly person. As for weaknesses, I might get a bit angry at some stuff, but just a bit.

b - How well do you get along with others?
I can get along pretty much with anyone.

c - Would you consider yourself to be argumentative?
No, mostly because I like to find a solution as fast as possible, but I do tend to argue if the matter is a bit too trivial or just simply annoying to me.

d - Would you say you'd rather take orders or give them?
I'd rather give them. I've never really liked being told what to do unless it was necessary. I do follow the rules though.

e - Would you consider yourself to be stubborn?
If I have to be, then yes, but otherwise no.

f - What makes you suitable for this position?
I'm a hardcore fan of this group anyways, so I always try to keep myself up to date with it. I've modded forums, forums sections and I currently mod many groups in CR, including the, JECRfanclub, Uedalovers, and other groups related to KAT-TUN. I suppose u can say I have some mod experience.


3) Descibe your moderation style, how would you handle users who break the rules?
Warning is the first thing, if the rule breaking continues, A more Visual warning wold be put up, if ther rule breaking just non stop continues, I would go to the source of the problem and Give a ban warning to the group. If continued (same person), ban would be done.
I'm usually fair, and I dont' have problems with telling others to follow the rules of CR. And I'm really strict about those rules too.

4) How much time do you currently spend on Crunchyroll?
I check it daily maybe for more than an Hour or so.

5) How much time can you devote? How many days a week can you be on and for how many hours?
I can go on Daily and I can check it daily for as many hours as needed.

6) What other responsibilities do you have and how much of your time do they occupy?
I have school, but I only have 3 classes in the morning and one in the afternoon. Otherwise, the rest of the time, I can be on.

7) Here you may type any other comments that you think we should know about when considering you as a choice:
What can I say, I love KAT-TUN lol
