Fun fact:
Most jobs are boring, repetitive, exhausting, and exct.

But:
Those who love their job, tend to overlook those moments of the job. But, they will cling to fun part of the job most of the time. Or just make the entire job into this massive game, seen it happen before. But, either. If you love your job, then good for you, this is the right job for you. But, if you don't love it; then time to move on. But, this just common knowledge in the jobs market.

Have you guys had the thought of quitting your jobs as mods?

with all the bad stuff you have to put up with


I find it sort of funny the other mods haven't mentioned this but... it isn't a job. I don't get paid for it at least. I like to mod on CR to help out the site and keep things running, I love what the site wanted to do when it went legal, I love the shows (well most of em ), and there are plenty of users and other mods I consider buddies. Why wouldn't I want to help out given the chance? I am just fortunate that I have been.

Agreed with Kark. We don't get paid. The membership is our only bonus (Kark's the only one that has actively paid for his own membership because he's got the wealth of casterly rock on his side.) i've made awesome friends over the years here on cr. and will continue to help out as long as i'm able.

Technically, it is a job karkarov. Just because you are not getting paid'ed, does not mean it is not a job. To long to get into here. But, this is a simply copy V paste from a article explaining what a forum moderator is, in short:
Also, if you need to see evidence of moderator jobs, which you are getting paid. Then just check out the job listings

We're volunteers mirg. we're not forced to come into work every day. it's not some kind of 9-5 schtick. we come online when we can and mod when we can.

The sad thing is he's too old for me! Darn! Gotta find some other way for financial support!

Greenland. I've fallen in love with it and have never been. It reminds me of Canada (home) and Europe (Norway/Denmark) mixed together. I want to go exploring that entire country.

Coming from a person who did quit. It was never because of CR but because of personal problems. I quit social media altogether. Facebook, twitter, crunchyroll, tumbler, and varies other accounts online, just to sort out my life. Am I the only one who feels like I don't really go through "bad stuff" on CR? O_o The user's lately make it out like we have a shitty job. But infact it's real fun working here. :/


I'll join you in exploring Greenland. I have to agree with you that it is a gorgeous country, so is Iceland.

You aren't the only one who feels like not leaving because of the bad stuff on CR. I really enjoy working here as well, if I wasn't, I'd be long gone by now.

Also this issue about us as having a job on CR, no. The staff members like customer support are the ones who have the job. We are just volunteers. Other moderators elsewhere, I have no idea, but we are volunteers. If you wish to argue with me about it, one word - I don't get any income nor a salary from working here, thus I am a volunteer. I volunteered to help out.

Hello Moderators! (And other inhabitants of this thread)

Random question that I'm sure has been asked before, so feel free to ignore it.

What's the story behind your avatars? Just curious, as I'm one of those people who changes theirs pretty often.

Job:
Do casual or occasional work.
A responsibility or duty

Work:
Activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result.

A job is not just a paid position, this is a common misunderstanding of the word

Yes, we put a leash on our moderators and treat them like slaves. We whip them if they do not moderate well and starve them to death as a punishment. Joke aside, our moderators ARE volunteers and that's it.

Let's end it before it reaches a whole new level of boringness.

So playing video games is now work? I mean I have to extend mental and physical effort.... my fingers are moving. It is also being done with the purpose of being entertained.

I need to start demanding to be paid for waking up in the morning too.

I'm a mochacafe, I like things coffee-related. I refill the mods up everyday. Otherwise, you'll see them as zombies roaming around CR wanderously. Keeps them awake on the job 24/7.

I-I only came to Crunchyroll to watch Strawberry Panic.

What happened next is kind of blurry; I only remember lots of blood, screams and intense pain. When I woke up, I was inside a padded white room, strapped to a chair with a computer in front of me. Given that I had only access to Crunchyroll, I began to roam the forums when not anime long lost.

During these encounters I wrote many idiotic things, and sometimes less idiotic.
I got a taste for discussing things, which I still have today if only somewhat more tempered.
My tendency to tease people lead to me to interesting happenings, but like all silly things - it eventually ended.

When it was feeding & sleeping time, they would use some sort of gas to make me asleep. That way they minimized any interaction with me.

In the earnest hope of one day being released from the padded room, I started writing long-winded and oft amusing reports to the moderators when I saw rules being broken. This caught the attention of several moderators, who encouraged me to continue writing such reports. I still recall one particular report of mine, where I felt rather inspired and made it long. edsamac contacted me shortly afterwards and told me words of true despair - The report was too long...


Long did I contemplate the meaning of life, but eventually I realised that life can still be worthwhile even if my reports were not essays.

During this ordeal, I made several friends - not many, yet they were more venerable and interesting than most. Due to my reclusive state, I did not hunt far and wide for a large quantity of friends.


Then the moments of truth came... The staff had some vacancies. I grabbed the opportunity and as luck would have it - I was granted the position as Librarian Assistant. I still feel some regret from abandoning my amusing reports, but it was a needed sacrifice. Once the new position was official, I was transported to a dusty library where I slaved with fellow librarians to bring the place to a higher standard.

After toiling day in and day out, I finally built up the courage to plead for more responsibility from the local Senior Officer. My plead was granted and I was given access to the public rooms, where my role was to make sure everyone played by the rules.

In the beginning I was only allowed a baton and a notebook where I wrote down the wrong-doings. With time I grew worthy of more, and I was given more tools to assist the public into flourishing into something better. There was a time when I grew arrogant with my powers, but once my superior gave me a warning I shaped up. I could not fail in my grand plan at this point, and here we are.

My journey is not yet over, but one day...
