I became a mod in 2009 when a grayman ninja death zombie hit squad tried to kidnap Shinji and BasouKazuma. I was the guy who saw it all going down so I kindly called the local Bancho and they came down hard on those aliens. I think one grayman got an eye put out when the Bancho poked him in the face with his hair.

In appreciation they made me a Library Mod.

Or could have been that application I filled out for the position when they were looking for people to mod the Library. It is hard to tell.

What's changed is the site is mostly better. We get considerably more anime every season than we used to and the site design is tons better than the old one. Of course we also lost some things like Crunchyland which was ok for some goofy fun while chatting... and the Chat itself. All in all I like where the site is quite a bit these days despite those losses.

I became a mod in mid-2008 after fighting valiantly in the Moderator Holy Wars of 2007. The war fatigue was palpable. In an attempt to stir up morale after our pyrrhic victory against the Banned Ones, a few individuals of distinguished valor were promoted to the ranks of Chatmodship. I was one such person.

Through the years we have lost and gained much. The Chat was destroyed and sucked into the Eternal Void. Crland was abandoned after a disastrous item was mistakenly released that turned the entire environment into brittle glass (a few moderators and countless users were lost in its wake.) The entire area is now cordoned off and marked as a level 5 uninhabitable zone.

However, not all was doom and gloom. We gained powerful alliances from the Land of the Rising Sun and with their continued support, we were able to move forward and bring bountiful entertainment to our users (both new and old). .

Do mods get paid or "paid" in Crunchyroll membership? If it's money, is the pay good? Are you all moderating from different places? How does one become a moderator?

I have been a moderator, since 2007. I was chosen to become a chat moderator as the chats were new at the time and there were only 3 official moderators who had the abilities to moderate the chats. I have to admit that sometimes I miss the chats, because I like the real-time interactions with users.

Then I got promoted and shot to site moderator after chat died. I have been moderating profiles and other stuff around the website for a while including CRland when I was a chat mod though. The main job that I do as a site mod are profiles, that is my specialty. I started forum modding around last year and so I am a baby when it comes to forum modding.

What has changed from when I started now - I am a bit more lenient and relaxed than I was back then. I was really strict before, but I have gotten nicer over the years. Maybe some people will not a agree with me, but that is up to their discretion.

The website itself has changed over the years. I see new people and at times, old users who I have met years back (like you Zen, I remember some of your posts from wayyyyy back).

Bedlam is the only moderator who has been with me throughout my modding journey or at least since 2008 and onward. I am happy with the staff we have now and the moderating staff members are closer than it was back then (when everyone was in their own little corners).

I hope that answers your questions ^^!~

And may I ask, how did you came upon CR, zen?

I actually participated in the series mod games in 2008-early 2009 it was a blood thirsty battle; kinda like the hunger games, in the end I won the title of series moderator with Nyarth, & Starry. I remember it like it was just yesterday. Things were away different back then since I was here before CR became legit and went through the transitional phase to become the present.... I remember when shinji was a 2nd year college student back in 07' and when CR Land was introduced.... Ah how time flies!

Here is a list of some of the current mods anniversary months of becoming mods:
January 05' shinji
November 06' Basou
December 07' Mochacafe
June 08' Bedlam
January 09' Nyarth & alexwithcandy & starry
June 09' Karkarov & AHTL
August 09' LosingOrbit & Serenity
December 11' Bjaker
November 12 ' Geinrendour & magiksen & swyanne & uzuto & genzai & mugenko & Stipervetz

*mods correct me if I have your anniversary month wrong. These dates are what's on our history page.

Kippu was a troll? I can't picture that, nor LosingOrbit. xD But then again, I don't know them personally.

Rebels, good for them.

You have been manipulated into creating the reality I want for you.

Because you posting that will instantly "unlock" that thread.
The mods are already unhappy with you guys' behavior, do you really wanna go there?

^ Oh, look, a mind controlled slave as a avatar. The mods are not gods.
