as y'all have probably noticed lately, this place has been hella-busy, and with the christmas period approaching it's only going to get busier.

thus, we've decided to appoint a new moderator to aus. social. those who have applied before know the deal; for those of you who haven't, but might be interested, read on. applications are to be sent to [email protected], stating your reason for application, your previous contributions to the forum, and why you think you'd be good for the job (why you actually want the spot would probably be good too - unfortunately it's not all hookers, midgets and coke, contrary to popular belief :().

applications will be open until the end of the golden nangs (about three or so weeks from now), and when we come to our decision we'll inform everyone.

please feel free to post any questions you have about the position in this thread (or email/pm us mods), but do not use this thread for discussion - we'll just delete it anyway.

Can new people apply? I've been a moderator on other bulletin boards and I think I'd be good for this one. It seems a lot of people need a bit of a shake up.

Being new, you'd have a bit of trouble addressing the previous contributions to the forum section, but you can certainly apply if you want. Although you did say you don't know why you bother with this forum, so I don't really know why you'd want to mod it...

Thank you for providing some good advice. Finally someone on this forum has. Can I send you links to other Bulletin Boards that I have moderated as proof that I am good?

I had written out a fantastically convincing application.

It dealt with how I had been around for ages... read every thread.. have a few friends and a few enemies but how I am mostly neutral to everyone here.

Then I thought...

"Do I really want that responsibility?"

And discovered that no. No I really don't.

I like reading the heated online arguments. I prefer being the schoolkid in the playground watching the fight rather than the teacher coming to break it all up.

Heck... in certain situations I even like swinging a few punches myself.


So no. No moderator application for me.

Plus I am terrified of rejection. Oh god so bad.

;)


Good luck to whomever wins the fine new title.

Can I submit more than one application? Will that increase my chance of winning?
