Some of you may think why all this hassle to be a moderator and why treat it as a proper interview is it really necessary?

The answer is yes we are looking for people who we can trust and you will be exposed to extremely sensitive material and situations arising from members which effect people in real life and have an impact on their well being, being a moderator is not just about edit, close, ban delete there is much more than that and the other mods can vouch for this too, as we have always say there is a lot of things that happen behind the scenes such as "People running away from homes, people on verge of suicide etc etc, dealing with Media" and in a lot of instances the forum somehow gets involved in all this so yes you will be likely to be exposed to such situations there is a lot of stuff that goes on behind the scene thus the reason why I said you will be exposed to extremely sensitive material on the forum and most the time we end up picking this up and dealing with it in one way or another.

At the same time as well as moderating we do have some level of responsibility as well in terms of safeguarding our members as well, from other "Members" on the forum who are not entirely honest about their real motives on the forum. It is more than just a forum.

Then there are other stuff as well in terms of being part of developing the long term strategies of the forum and helping to manage it and keep the place running smoothly.

Those chosen will be expected to give their real name to us. If you wish to remain anonymous then the position is not for you

Obviously the position is voluntary unfortunately no one gets paid here but if you are quite active and enjoy the forum then it would be ideal being part of it

There is no criteria as to who can apply open to all!

Please Ensure that you create a new Helpdesk thread if you wish to apply.
