Applications for forum moderators
« on: October 15, 2008, 12:39:38 am »
[Update: This round of applications completed and closed on Nov. 12.]

Original post:

We're taking applications for forum moderators for the 2009 convention year.

This is a staff position in the Publicity department. You should be active on the forums and regularly read many or most of the threads. Frequent participation in online forums, or even better, moderating experience, is a big plus.

Like the Yojimbo position at the con, this is both a rule-enforcement position, and a customer service position. Moderators need to follow the moderation guidelines that are set forth as well as exercise judgment in unforeseen situations. Occasionally, difficult situations will arise in which you may need to discuss with other moderators or defer to the director level. You'll also have the opportunity to suggest forum guidelines and changes.

After applications are received, I will select from the applicants to begin an evaluation period for 2-3 months. At the end of this evaluation period, 3-5 moderators will be selected to become the official staff moderators for the 2009 convention year. All moderators for the 2009 year will be selected from this application process.

If you are interested, please prepare the following information:

  • Your name, forum name, and email address.
  • Any previous Kumoricon staff positions you have held, and what years.
  • Any relevant experience which you think contributes to your being a good moderator. This can include participation in online forums, moderating experience, web site experience, customer service experience, rule-enforcing experience, or anything else.
  • Please also simply state why you think you would be a good moderator.

Please send to publicity@kumoricon.org.

Applications for the initial moderator selection must be received by Wednesday, Nov. 12.

If there is a shortage of moderators later in the year or a need for a greater number, we may re-open applications.

Thank you!

[Update: Deadline changed to Nov. 12]

Question for clarification, Jeff:

Does this mean all current moderators must reapply for the position if they wish to continue modding?
