1) What skills do you possess that would make you a good candidate for this position?

I have a good sense in following the rules and acknowledging them. I am a friendly and nice person, but if I need to, I will be assertive and direct. I am a hard working person, who puts 100% effort into things. I am honest and trustworthy, I hate to lie to people because I always have a good conscience that will eat me up if I do anything bad to someone (even if it's online). I also like to support things that I like, as I never go to fansubs for Anime. I use licensed sites for anime like Crunchyroll and Hulu (Funimation/TAN/Viz). I am also good at English because I am currently getting an A in English in High School. I also love anime! :)

I also have knowledge in running a site. I also know how to code HTML and CSS. If you want to check out my site, it's ronaldmanual.com.

2) What would your moderation style be?

I will be a straight man, like Yui from Yuyushiki, as she has fun with the other girls, but she has standards and stops the crazy antics when it gets too weird. I will allow things to be fun but when things get inappropriate or if the rules are broken, I will take action.

3) How often do you frequent the official forum categories, and do you post often?

I VISIT CRUNCHYROLL EVERYDAY! I also view the forum everyday, especially the anime section. I post when I have something important to say or if I have anything to say.

P.S. Some of these people only have 1 posts... It doesn't seem like they really care about the forum. Please dont pick someone who only made 1 post.

4) Have you reported inappropriate threads before? If so, how often?

I haven't seen anything inappropriate or anything that is breaking the rules... Oh, but I remember seeing my "DAISUKI Launch" in the anime topic section was reported as an inappropriate topic, but I didn't know why? It didn't break the rules I guess. Was it because it was advertising a different site? At least it wasn't deemed inappropriate as it's still up and running. :)

5) What do you feel is an appropriate amount of time to spend moderating?

Usually the amount of time moderating shouldn't be a quick skim through the forums, so I guess as much time it takes to read and look through the forums. I would be glad to take 30 or more minutes looking at the forums to moderate as I am already taking my time to read the forums. If I'm already wasting an hour of my life reading the forums, I might as well look for things to report.

6) Aside from Anime, what other hobbies do you have?

I like to web design in my free time. I am not a professional but it's a hobby. I own a fan site called Swalots-Avenue (swalotsave.info). I'm also an avid fan of Nintendo games. I usually play on my Nintendo 3DS or Wii U when I'm bored. I'm a big Pokemon fan. But most of my time, I watch anime on Crunchyroll or Hulu. I like to watch anime on my TV, especially with my Roku Box. I actually bought my Roku box just for Crunchyroll... :)

7) What timezone do you live in?

I live in Illinois so it would make it (UTC-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada). I typically visit Crunchyroll everyday and I am free usually during the evening and night when it's school but it's summer break so I'm free during the day. But I usually visit Crunchyroll when ever I am free.

8) If you have any other comments that you feel are necessary and weren't covered in the other questions, you may write them here:

I love Crunchyroll so much. It makes anime easy and great to watch. I would love to help by being a moderator. I usually read and look at the forums in my free time, so helping moderate it would be easy and fun for me. :)

1) What skills do you possess that would make you a good candidate for this position?

I held a supervisor position in the customer service field where I encountered all types of people. There were those who made my day, those who were emotional, and those who were just upset. I learned from my years working there that patience and understanding are both important to defuse angry customers or even my fellow peers. I took AFJROTC classes in high school which taught me how to be a leader, I was in a position where my underclassmen looked to me for support and guidance. Those four years defined who I am. Being in a leadership role definitely makes you see a different side of yourself.

2) What would your moderation style be?

As a moderator I would be calm and collected. Being in a role of authority demands someone who can make calm and fair decisions, not just firing an employee because that is the easiest solution. I understand that every individual has their own opinions and I may not agree with them and they may not agree with me, but I will not hold their opinions against them. I have been a part of this site since 2009 and I want to have all the members continue to enjoy it, both the Anime / Drama and the forums. Anyone who would try to harass a member or violate the site rules I will pass along the proper action to them. I would be reasonable, my first course of action would not be to reach for the "ban hammer" at all.

3) How often do you frequent the official forum categories, and do you post often?

I visit this site everyday, the forums as well. While I don't post each day, when I have something worth discussion I do post.

4) Have you reported inappropriate threads before? If so, how often?

I have come across a few threads in my time here that warranted me reporting it to a moderator. If I see the thread has been reported already I won't flag it again, since that is just making another ticket for the moderators to cycle through when it has already been handled. I have not purposely browsed the forums for rule breakers, but you do eventually encounter them from time to time. So, as for frequency, I would say average for how long I spend on this site.

5) What do you feel is an appropriate amount of time to spend moderating?

I'm on this site everyday for at least 2 - 3 hours, I would say I watch anime and then browse the forums after the episodes are over. So, to answer the question perhaps around an hour a day give or take depending on which day it is. Of course weekends I would devote more time due to the influx of forum visitors.

6) Aside from Anime, what other hobbies do you have?

I play World of Warcraft, cannot wait for Final Fantasy XIV to be released! I also attend my local University in the Fall and Spring semesters as a Computer Science / Computer Engineering major. That falls into my hobbies because I enjoy learning more things about Computer Science like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, C, C++, C#, etc. The challenge of tackling another language is what makes it so fun for me.

7) What timezone do you live in?

Eastern Time Zone (United States & Canada)

8) If you have any other comments that you feel are necessary and weren't covered in the other questions, you may write them here:


The current Support and Mod team are looking for people with HUGE power levels, a friendly demeanor, and a knack for diffusing tense situations in a professional manor.


My power level is over 9000! Haha. I cannot wait to have the chance to work with the moderation team. I feel I am the one for this position and I hope my questionnaire displays that. Thanks for your time.

1) A skill that I have is Stealth. As an infrequent poster, I lurk amongst the forums gathering intelligence to bring back to my dojo. I seldom reply to topics that I feel compelled to infiltrate, but I am but a mere observer. I am constantly honing my skills of quick strikes and hard hits when I am ready to post. It will not be long before I become adept at interjections and become a Peacemaker. I know when is the appropriate time to strike, meaning I am patient enough to know when to step in.

2) My moderation style would include the re-education of those whom I deem to have inappropriate posts. I would send them messages explaining why it was deleted instead of simply assassinating their comment leaving to traces of my presence at the scene. I would even help them to make better choices of words the next time so that it does not simply discourage them from posting at all. I am a mellow person, I do not seek out fights (for my lightweight gear excels at agility, not combat) so I speak highly of everyone I meet to make them comfortable.

3) As of late, I am frequenting the forums more often. Other forums I used to traverse are not as lively these days. I would like to become more active and this would be a great Opportunity to let me do so. But as swift as my blade, my few posts are terse and to the point. I also have been more sociable (I'm rather fond of the caption contests).

4) My blade has not been stained with the blood of an evil post...yet

5) Like any profession, one should at least be dedicated to spend THE RIGHT amount of time until the job is DONE. No assassin ever leaves the target still breathing. I feel that no less than an hour a day patrolling our borders of the boards recent posts are crucial to catching the few clever targets that sneak past our borders with evil intent to undermine our friendly crunchy country.

6) After a long day of training at the dojo, I spend my free time playing World of Warcraft, editing videos (AMVs are my favorite) and currently reviving my passion for digital art and drawing. But I take my time; whenever I start something, I don't finish until I feel it's the very best I can do.

7) Pacific time. I live in Hawaii. (Can't really think of other ninja puns or allusions)

8) I would like to know if there are missions that I would be assigned from a captain or sensei. Would I have to report to anyone? Progress debriefings? How much power do I have at my disposal and do I have restrictions?

Also, I would like to add that I am not a ninja. Forgive me if I created that assumption. I only meant to portray my work ethic in a clever visualization. So do not be alarmed, I am not a trained assassin. But I do possess various knives. ;D

1) What skills do you possess that would make you a good candidate for this position?

What makes me a good candidate is that I have over 10 years customer service experience and online technical support experience. I'm also a people person. I love meeting new people and helping them out in anyway. I also have 7 years of computer technician experience and web design.
I do my best in what ever I do and I feel like I would be a great asset to your team.

2) What would your moderation style be?
Trying to get to the root of the issue by probing. Getting to know all that I can by compiling all of the information and then solving it to the best of my abilities.

3) How often do you frequent the official forum categories, and do you post often?

I frequent the site as much as I can. I have the Crunchyroll app on my phone and tablet; I view it on my computer from time to time as well. I don't post often but I like to read the comments.

4) Have you reported inappropriate threads before? If so, how often?

I haven't reported anything as of now. I haven't seen anything that needed to be reported, but if I do I will most definitely do so.

5) What do you feel is an appropriate amount of time to spend moderating?

I feel that the appropriate time to spend is about 8 hours a day. I would approach this like a regular 9-5 job. I would split it up into four hour increments. Depending on the number of comments 10 hours may be sufficient. I want to make sure that I do the best job possible and help as many people as I can.

6) Aside from Anime, what other hobbies do you have?

Well I love to spend my time drawing manga and working on animations. I also have a love for film making and I spend time creating content for my YouTube page.

2) What would your moderation style be?
Follow the rules, keeping it clean

I read various threads every other day or so. I don't post often.
4) Have you reported inappropriate threads before? If so, how often?
None

Depends on the size of the team. I'm not going to lie, I won't sit here all day moderating a forum I'm not getting paid to watch over, but as I'm doing stuff on my computer(which is nearly half my day) I can keep an eye on things.
6) Aside from Anime, what other hobbies do you have?

Questions:

1) What skills do you possess that would make you a good candidate for this position?

Well for starters i already have a little experience in moderating on a game forum(www.mayngames.com). I recieved well feedback from my superiors and from the community, and if i may say so myself, i did a good job.
I would also like to point out that i have a personality that makes me easy to get along with. I am kind, yet i will be strict and straight to the point should the situation require it.

2) What would your moderation style be?

Like i mentioned i will not tolerate breaking the rules, but rather than forcing them down their throats, i would communicate and try to make them understand.

3) How often do you frequent the official forum categories, and do you post often?

I am constantly checking up on the Crunchyroll forum. I love taking part in discussions and sharing a laugh or two about anything from anime to politics. I post in the general discussion, anime and manga section but if i were to pick one im the most active in, it would be the anime section.

4) Have you reported inappropriate threads before? If so, how often?

I will be completely honest with you. Out of the few innapropriate threads i have come across, i have not reported any because they have been such mild cases. That is not to say i havent done anything to help out. Instead of reporting them, i have felt that providing them with information on whats allowed or not seemed like a better solution at that point. This is something i would definitely be willing to work on should i be selected.

5) What do you feel is an appropriate amount of time to spend moderating?

Checking out the newest thread once they are out, and then looking through them several times a day would be appropriate. Finding the delicate balance between lazy and overworking might be difficult, but i suppose thats what you figure out through experience.

6) Aside from Anime, what other hobbies do you have?

I have quite a few hobbies, but if i were to mention a few of my most recent ones it would be webdesign, jogging, reading and of course anime.

7) What timezone do you live in?

GMT +2 West-europe

1) What skills do you possess that would make you a good candidate for this position?

Personally, I feel I have quite good communication skills in the sense that I leave myself quite open to discussion and opinion whilst always willing to lend a hand to anyone who is willing to ask for help.

Experience wise I have had Moderator experience with only a Minecraft server which housed around 3,000 people nationally and those duties included the helping and running of the forums.

2) What would your moderation style be?

If I had to put it into perspective it would be a more 'open' style. When I see an argument or conflict between people I like to go into the situation without a Bias opinion and talk to all people involved regarding their side of the story before I feel confident enough to come to a reasonable conclusion to the matter.


3) How often do you frequent the official forum categories, and do you post often?

From my perspective I come here very often. I am on atleast twice a day normally in the morning and in the evenings. I check the news on the front page of Crunchyroll on a daily basis whilst also visiting forum threads ranging from Anime and Manga to completely off topics.

I don't tend to post in the forums very often, this is because I enjoy reading about the opinions that other people have regarding Anime/ Manga or even what is happening in our modern society.

4) Have you reported inappropriate threads before? If so, how often?

To be honest I haven't reported any inappropriate threads, this isn't because I haven't felt that I need to but because I've never fell across any since the sear majority of the Crunchyroll community that I have seen are sincerely good.


5) What do you feel is an appropriate amount of time to spend moderating?

For me I would feel to spent atleast a couple of hours daily with Moderation tasks wither they be over looking the forums or giving the community support.

6) Aside from Anime, what other hobbies do you have?

Cosplay, Art design and sport.


7) What timezone do you live in?

UTC/GMT +12 hours


8) If you have any other comments that you feel are necessary and weren't covered in the other questions, you may write them here:

1) What skills do you possess that would make you a good candidate for this position?
I am very intellectual, I posses great customer service skills that are adequate with the position.

2) What would your moderation style be?
I find fairness is a must, I might be a bit strict on certain things, keeping people in check is something of importance because sometimes we can be harsh towards others because our ideals are much different. I don't tolerate foul language nor racial comments. Some things should be keep in mind and in no way shall I tolerate any sort of things that may be inappropriate in the forums. Following the code of conduct is a must for me.

3) How often do you frequent the official forum categories, and do you post often?
Certain topics I find worth discussing about, I like to be very communicative. Giving an opinion is as great as an advice one can give to another we improve by speaking our minds out. I really enjoy giving my opinion when necessary.

4) Have you reported inappropriate threads before? If so, how often?
As for now I have not seen any threads that I have been part of offensive. Sometimes we as people cross the line and that is when we must set a boundary to keep everyone in check.

5) What do you feel is an appropriate amount of time to spend moderating?
I believe availability is one of the things, we may be somewhat busy at some point but keeping up on what the status of a conversation is important. A few hours a day seems like an adequate amount of time especially if you are busy with daily tasks.

6) Aside from Anime, what other hobbies do you have?
I enjoy drawing, reading, listening as well as playing music, sometimes I spend time on gaming but not as much as watching anime.

7) What timezone do you live in?
EDT (US)

8) If you have any other comments that you feel are necessary and weren't covered in the other questions, you may write them here:
I feel that it is necessary to set boundaries as to what can be posted on the forums. Also as to those who get to be part of Crunchyroll's moderators what guidelines are there to follow, there should be a strict set of rules that must be place to those who get the position.
