Moderator Opening Announcement

Hi everyone. We currently have an open moderator position on this message board. If you?d like to apply for this position, please go to the Moderator Application Process - How to Apply & Questions Answered thread and follow the instructions to apply to be a moderator on this board. Please note that the deadline to get applications in is August 20. If you had applied the last time there were moderator openings here, you'll need to reapply, as we don't keep old applications in case people are no longer interested in the position, and besides, we've simplified the application process in recent months. Thanks!

Good luck to everyone who applies.

Come visit the WWE/Wrestling Board

When we're free to love anyone we choose
When this world's big enough for all different views
When we all can worship from our own kind of pew
Then we shall be free

Hi Everyone,

We've decided to continue to allow people to apply for this message board until August 20, so that we'll have a larger qualified candidates list to select from.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Also, I'd like to ask your attention for the following:

Quoted from the Questions&Answers board:

The Management Team has often been asked what kind of qualities we look for in a candidate applying to moderate a board. Part of that question was answered in my previous post. However, listed below are a general list of questions that we commonly ask when reviewing each person's application:

1. How long has the candidate been a member at Fan Forum?

2. How many posts does the candidate have?

[This is important, we feel, because we want any potential moderator candidate to be an active poster here.]

3. Does the candidate start topics on the board that he or she wants to moderate?

4. Does the candidate participate on a variety of topics on the board that he or she wants to moderate, or do they mostly post on just one thread, like a shipper thread?

5. What did the candidate say about himself or herself in their application?

6. Is the candidate already a moderator here, and are they a good moderator?

7. Has the candidate been posting on the board that they want to moderate for a long time, or did they just start posting after the Moderator Opening Announcement was posted?

[We consider this to be very important, because some people will apply to moderate a board simply so they can have the title of Moderator under their name, even though they had never posted on the board that they applied to moderate. We think that appointing someone to moderate a board who had never posted on that board would be extremely unfair to the regular posters who did post on that board, especially if one of the regular posters applied for that board.]

We hope this gives you a better idea of how the moderator application process is performed.
So please notice that just posting on Game or OT threads isn't enough. If you want us to seriously consider you, please make sure you're a highly visible part of the board, provoke discussion and add something to the board.

Thank you for reading this!

bballplayer30 has been appointed as the new moderator for this message board, so I'm closing this thread down now. We'd like to thank everyone that applied.
