No, it doesn't mean YOU have to be on 24/7. It means I need enough moderators to cover the site 24/7.

There are a few issues with him posting about it. The first issue is that we have to be able to trust you. As in we need to know that you're going to properly stop people who are breaking the rules, instead of supporting them in their posting. Also, the position comes with a lot of hate. As soon as people know you're able to ban them, they'll be mad at you for it. No one is happy to be banned, even if they deserved it and they know it. Another thing is that you become seperated from the community. Some people will be afraid to talk to you because of the fact that you're a mod. Its a difficult position to be in. And it can also be boring. Having to sit on this page: www.funnyjunk.com/allcomments
It gets boring and tiring.

I understand people wanting to help but the biggest issue is being able to trust people, and since you're not getting paid for it, some people might get bored with the position and give up. Trust me

Out of curiosity: Why do people have to know who is a mod and who isn't? You present it as a given that mods will carry some kind of badge that identifies them as such. Why? Nobody needs to know who is a mod and who isn't.

After all, the mods wouldn't be a kind of secret police then which listens in on private conversations, but they would be modding public comments, and the removal of a comment or the ban of a user is just the same as flagging a picture, except that the effect would be immediate. If I flag a picture, people also don't know that it was me after all.

I am a 'mod' of my own board, I had to sit there and delete comments and block people from the board for about half hour or more. And I have to go through the comments on the board everyday to ensure no one is breaking the board rules or posting anything ****.
Most people don't talk to me much anyway, since I can be seen as cold hearted or retarded, depending on the person.
I don't really mind the extra work, my summer is soon anyway due to where I live, so I will be on even more over the next month or so.
As for hate, I am alright with that, I have been hated for blocking people from Shin Anime before and for choices I have made. Some people don't talk to me anymore because of that, I don't mind because I wasn't 'close' to them anyway.

I mentioned in a post a little earlier, I would make a good mod, because I really don't have anyone on here I'm friends with, or hate, so I'd be impartial. I pretty much always have funnyjunk open in a tab too. And I've been here since yellow FJ, so it would be an honor for me.

I mostly applied because I've done a lot of moderating and I enjoy always having something to do, like checking comments, posts, etc.

I personally think that you can only truly be a good moderator if you are involved and care about the community you mod for, if you lose this interest you often loose the will to moderate. And I don't think a lot of the users here has that devotion, since the majority are 15-18 and there is a lot of change going on through that time off life.

But hey, that's just my side of it.

I would gladly do it. I rarely participate in funnyjunk content nor comments. Yet I would gladly spend some hours per day to clean up FJ. I don't really know how I can show you can trust me but I will defintly not abuse being a mod.

Yo. Just gonna leave this here since I don't know how to "apply".

I work 8 hours a day and my job is pretty boring. Most of the time I spend browsing funnyjunk so thats atleast 8 hours/weekday. (That's CET 8am to 4pm)

Thought that I'd give it a shot. That is all.

I'll put this here since the post doesn't specify where to apply.

I am on FJ everyday. I am what you describe as a lurker, December 23rd will mark my fourth year on this site. I spend countless hours daily browsing funnyjunk and reading comments, but I rarely post unless I feel knowledgeable about the topic at hand.

I live on the East Coast, time zone GMT-5. I am currently a network admin for a reputable minecraft server and I believe I have what it takes to become a moderator on this site.

Eh, I just think he might as well enlist people who are trustworthy since it's good to have numbers with this sort of thing (we all have lives that vary).    
   
For me... I think I could browse two funnyjunk tabs quite easily and the whole people hating you thing doesn't bother me in the slightest. The fact that it's boring is made up for by having a good quantity of mods. Some days, you'll be free to do mod stuff and others you'll leave it up to others. It's better then what we have already at least.   
   
So hell yeah I would still be up for it. Not like I've broken rules or not flagged things in the past which is more then some can say. Although, I'm curious as to how "trust' is being defined in this situation....

That actually makes a lot of sense, but a decent way to get around this is to have quite a few mods that browse for a little bit in shifts, I don't know how this would be organised, but a shift system may work, so people won't get bored as quickly, and instead of browsing "allcomments" have some mods going through content as a regular user and checking all of the comments on each post, that's how I find a lot of porn and questionable pictures anyway.

i would make a good mod being i already report stuff i find to addy or you personally but i have only been here with an actual account for a few months over a year, i don't feel guilty about getting people banned/thumb banned when they break the rules either being i hate seeing stuff where it doesn't belong and i spend almost all of my time here anyways(plus i like keeping score of how many people i can drop at once for the lulz!).
personally i prefer to warn people when i think they will get banned if i think they press it too far and don't have a record of pulling ****.
personally if anyone is to be a mod they need a 2 week trial period to make sure that they won't abuse the power or things could become a huge mess.

I'm on funnyjunk very often, and i have always wanted to punish some people for posting some pretty nasty stuff in places it shouldn't be. I always keep a tab open so i would be able to evaluate a lot of comments. I am wondering though, is the banning like a zero tolerance policy? Even if someone just post something inappropriate ONCE, would they be instantly IP banned and not receive a warning?

why not potentially make mods anonymous to the rest of the community? That way they don't get hate and they don't have to be separated from everyone else? I mean, that way, you can also sort out the people who only want to be mods so they can get recognition.

Believe me when I say I have heard more than enough ANTI-phanact sentiment to render an elephant comatose but in my mind it all comes back to "is he doing his job" and "should I not let phanact speak for himself?" to those I say yes

and I know I am probably going to get a lot of red thumbs for this but I don't care, you guys are doing a fabulous job and admin deserves a lot of credit for coming out and requesting help. I visit this site often and would LOVE the chance to admin but I am honestly not on all the time... just consistently once a day for good funnies (comments some times are to die for) and admittedly porn

I do think it sucks that I have to be L40 to do anything but I understand that I need to contribute more to the community to advance but I find myself limited in original content (many patrons have a tendency to harass about that) and functionality in acquiring more thumbs.... eh. Keep up the good work guys (and gals im sure)

I'm perfect for the job.
I've been on funnyjunk for years, I'm a fair and reasonable guy, or at least, I like to think so, I do little with my days and am capable of browsing very frequently as a result. I'll ban and/or delete porn and all that ****, and if I spot ye olde spam, I'll take that **** to dinner too.

My only great reason is the fact that I can do it frequently.

I'm looking for moderators who can be online from 4AM EST until 10AM est, or even as late as noon. (Convert the timezones yourself)

The more comments you have, and the older account you have, the better.

I'll be choosing people more if they can be online during those specified times.

I'm looking to have enough mods so that we can flag anything as soon as its posted.
