Hello Carmel

I believe i know my ins and outs of the forums.

Edit: If chosen, i'd need to make my avatar a colour changing eye. Nothing fills the void though!

Edit2: I'm on pretty much all day, and im constantly refreshing(:sad so i can catch anything ban/warning worthy as soon as it happens.

Edit3: I've moderated other forums before, so i'm familiar with the job.
When all else fails, ask the pit.

I agree with Preid, it needs to be someone with experience of how the whole "power" thing works. To jump a regular user up to a bluey is a big jump.

I would like to be a mod because I hate spammers and I actually play guitar (unlike most pit goers).
Also I think I'm fair with people and somewhat nice.
and I'm on here alot.
Oh and I also read the rules a lot (everytime they're updated, so I know what's fair and what's not)
Did I do it right?

EDIT: I'm up for the training too.

Double edit: and I've also been here since the end of 2005, that's a long time, so I know what goes on in the pit.

In that case I retract my statement.

I would like to be a moderator, considering the fact that I was one in some forum site but then things got really awkward and the admin and I got into a big fight..

I would also like to be a mod but then, there's the totally annoying hours of spammers and scammers...

I'd like to because I feel I've been here long enough, know the pit and the regular posters well, am a pretty intelligent person and not generally disliked (I hope). I'd take it seriously too and don't believe I'd go on a power trip.

EDIT: I think there are a lot of people who would be good moderators, it's quite hard to say how exactly one stands out from the rest. I just have a genuine desire to be one and am sure I'd do a good job. One thing though is that in these serious threads about relationships, politics or whatever I tend to have very strong views but I don't verbally attack people with contrasting opinions and that is something I see a lot on these forums. I'd like to think I could keep everything nice and clean and while I don't think I'd be on here looking for people to ban or posts to delete (that would take the fun away from being in a forum!) I most certainly would be very aware of these things and would take appropriate action swiftly.

Well, in that case... I'm pretty much on all day, would love the oppurtunity to actually put something back into the community as opposed to an extremely underused FAQ over in the bass forum, and I'm trying not to be a dick anymore I also think I've got a good sense on what to let slide and such.

EDIT: I also like to think I'm pretty helpful if the poster deserves it. Otherwise a quick clip around the lugholes and a frogmarch off to google. I'm pretty much a kind of mod on my uni course as well- I get to bitch slap the lecturers around a bit if they aren't being helpoful and stuff and send them to the module leader's office of the banned. I realise that I may not be the best candidate for the job, but I believe that witrh training I could do a damn good job of it. I obviously don't have the experience of modding an online forum, but people have to start somewhere, don't they?

And are you just quitting the job, or quitting the site, Carm?

Did I do it right?

Also, I'm a mod on various other websites, most of which are boring, though.

Wait, no nominating others?

I think I should get the "job of justice" because I will only abuse my power while drunk. The rest of the time I will be a good, honest, judge who is on during Australian night time.

I've been here for more than 4 years now, University's coming up again which means I'll be browsing the pit daily, and it should've happened back in 06!

On the downside though, I'm not as well known these days, but that could work in my favour.

Also: I almost met FrenchyFungus once, but he'd left the pub.

I'll be a good choice because i surf the Pit regularly, and have respect for other users. I don't 1337speak, and i respect all other forum users...no matter what their join dates.

Also, might i ask why you're going?
#24
I can do that job because I'm over the age of 15, and therefore I'm older than 99% of UG.

I believe I would make a good mod, for several reasons, I love the pit, I posts a lot in the pit, and know the pit pretty good I have had some forum websites in the past, I was the admin on a forum for about 2 years I think im pretty good at running a forum.

can 08ers apply?

or are you going with people who have been here for longer than six months?

May as well throw my name into the mix, despite having the same chance as that of Chile winning Euro 2012

  • I moderate another forum, so I have experience in the role. I am in fact pretty much the only active mod there, so I'm practically holding the place together myself.
  • I'm on regularly, so there'll be quite a big chance of me seeing spam threads
  • I'd like to think I'm not exactly hated on here, so if you were to promote me, there wouldn't be a huge amount of UG'ers storming off
  • Whilst I have made some questionable posts, I believe I have the maturity needed to succeed in the position.


I'll miss you

1. I am fair and I know when someone has crossed the line.
2. I will never warn/ban someone or close a thread for an unnecessary reason.
3. I am very active on UG.
4. I am not a smartass.

Cheers carmel, I'm sure you will not be forgotten.

Going to add to this for my sake.

-I have dealt with idiots on this forum in the past.
-I have moderated other forums on the net in the past.
-I have a lot of free time and I am online a lot.
-I love UG
-I reiterate that I am a great dancer.

Hmm...

1. I'm new, but I've been browsing UG since I moved from Melbourne over three years ago. I never joined because I was a mod in a (less superior) guitar help site.

2. I'm also a bandOpedia and former Wikipedia mod.

3. I'm articulate, not (really) an ass, and don't tease people.

4. I play music for a living. Since joining, I'm rarely not on/browsing UG.

Sorry to see you go, I'm heard alot about you for over a year.
#35
I dont hold grudges and I'm fair.


Which is exactly why I cant be a mod. On the other hand, I'm young, black and can promise change.

So I'm assuming it doesn't need to be in the same timezone then?

I should be a mod because I went to Israel once as a baby.

YEAH ISRAEL


BUT seriously, I am on a lot (no life) and try to show the respect to users that they deserve... unless they don't deserve it. You'll check my history anyway, but know that I've learned from my mistakes and know when to be totz serious.

Reasons I would be a good choice:

1. I stay about 8 hours every day in the internet (and obviously on UG)
2. I study Ciences of Computing, so programming and informatics aren't a problem for me
3. I got a good history in warnings/bans: only two warnings in two years of UG...
4. I've been here for two years, so I know the forums work.
5. I speak and write English very well
6. I frequently report spam/troll threads (I care for the cleanness of the forums of UG)

ok, here goes

My reasons for applying are:


I believe in the cleanliness of the forum, and would be tough but fair when it comes to spammers and rule breakers.


I suffer from severe depression, and am currently being medicated for it, which means you can be assured that when I post, I do NOT bash someone based on stereotypical views of people, in particular emos, and as a person with depression, I have been through a lot, and have respect for everyone, until they do something to lose it. I recently came to UG when I was at my lowest, and the positive responses i got just blew me away. It made me see UG in a whole different way, and I would like to give something back


I spend most of my time online, and whenever I'm online, I am guareented to be on UG.


The reasons I believe I would make a good mod are:


- I know UG very well, and I know all the rules.


- I'm on everyday,and whenever I post, I always try to help other UGers

- I have never been banned, or received a warning

- I suffer severe depression, and when I was at one of my lowest points (a couple of days ago) i started a thread about it, and UG really came through for me, so I would like to give something back (by the way, the thread was called "when things get hard" just in case anyone with depression, or who knows someone with depression and would like some ideas to help them out)

- I'm genuinely a decent guy

- I'm not afraid to ban the spammers and the abusers. can't stand people who spam or break the rules on purpose


- I'm in the southern hemisphere, so i can mod and be online when the mods from the northern hemisphere are most likely sleeping.


- I currently don't go to school or work, so I'm on just about the whole day, and am constantly checking and reading threads


well, thats my application, i dont really have anything to add, except that although I'm an 08er, I've been on UG since 2005.

well, i doubt i'll get it, but who knows, maybe it'll provide you with a nice read


by the way, you'll be missed

I think i'd be good for the position as:
  • I'm on ug often.
  • I've never been banned.
  • I would moderate fairly.
  • I've been on ug over a year so i know my way around.
  • I now always use the search bar before posting a new thread.
  • I am friendly and try my best to contribute to threads.
  • I try my best to report spam and rule breaking often.
  • I am dedicated and willing to learn the ways of modship.
  • I will always edit my post rather than double post.
  • I'm almost 17 and I'm very mature
  • I don't drink so i will always have clarity of mind whilst posting.
  • Unlike most people i've read the rules.
  • I don't use meme's.


Thats about it really.
