    Re: Ask the mods a question

    Oh this is neat.

    I have a question for Pippin actually. Where do you get your avatars from?

    When you actually put forward an application and subsequent questioning. Simple enough.

    Neither. But maybe Kanye has an edge. A very microscopic edge.

    There was a thread on this somewhere. I'll need to rummage in the archives.

    6 minutes later: found it. Peruse at your leisure http://www.ummah.com/forum/showthrea...Ummah+Marriage

    No. It's a condiment. And a very good one for chips. Or 'Fries' if you're a 'murrican'

    In terms of what needs to be done on the daily: banning trolls, making sure spam is dealt with as much as possible and that threads are alright and users don't chew each other up.
    In terms of what can be seen: you don't need to worry too much about that. But we see enough to ensure the safeguarding of users firstly. No one snoops or accesses private information for the 'lols'.

    Not all are MIA. And that is up to the administrators.

    When the applications open, users can apply. Usually, you'll get a list of scenarios and things you'll need to explain and answer. And then a few personal questions about yourself. Things like infraction records and ban histories will be taken into consideration. If you're successful, you'll go through to round two and answer more real-life scenarios which are harder. If successful, round three has more general questions about your faith in the real world and a few more scenarios.

    You can never have too many scenarios basically lol.

          I would say Kim, because she turned an inappropriate tape of hers into a multi dollar business. She also got her family in on that gravy train, so she's intelligent enough to know that her stock will die down but the other members of her family will always keep her relevant. Even if they don't, she'll just take a picture and 'break the internet.'

          I believe most of the mods are actually married.....

          There's a thread somewhere in the marriage section that mentions this.

          As much as Allah wills. I'd just prefer not too much, because then you might sneeze and a baby pops out and that won't be fun for anyone.

          It's not that much. Admins are where the real powers are at. Mods can delete posts, threads, and rep comments. We can also hand out infractions and ban people. We can also see every helpdesk ticket in the user helpdesk. Hmmm....and see some of the darker things about ummah that would probably scar people for life.

          Shaykh Wikipedia says, "42 (forty-two) is the natural number that succeeds 41 and precedes 43."

          We're all in different time zones and have lives outside of the forum. We do try to have someone active at all times, but sometimes that doesn't happen. That's why it's important for members to report bad behaviour so that when a mod is available they can deal with it.

          As for replacing us with more active users, I don't know. That's a sajid question. I will say this though, once you become a mod you become less active so....

          Originally posted by ~Umar~ View Post

          Sajid says, "We're hiring!" People fill out a questionaire. The mods discuss applicants and narrow it down to a few good candidates. From there, 2nd round of testing happens. The mods discuss and we either go into a 3rd round or we pick someone from there.

          Allah decreed that Umar would be a male and thus he cannot have a pink username on the forum.

          Really want to know about UF mods. It should be proper an interview style thread for each mod. Lets start with @Pippin1376.

          My first question would be"do you love yourself pippin1376?".
          Of course, why wouldn't I? :scratch:

          I made the thread before I went to bed, then I had to do some real life stuff and was only available now.

                    InshaaAllah once Ramadan ends, I'll discuss the matter with Meri and Jenicca about what to do. Please forgive us for the lateness, all of us were incredibly busy with real life stuff.

                              If trolls or nationalists come on the forum in hordes, then the best thing to do is not to engage them and report the thread.

                              However, if you do engage them, then engage them in the best of ways. If they attack you or seem like they're not here for any sort of discussion, then report them.

                              As for how to stop these attacks from happening, I don't know. That's more of a question for [MENTION=3]sajid[/MENTION] though.

                              All I know is that Meri is the youngest Mod. Abu Mubarak or Te'oma are the oldest, and everyone else is scattered in between.
