Title: NOW HIRING: Forum Moderator(s)
Post by: m2 on August 27, 2013, 12:47:24 PM
Hey forum folks,

I just posted this in on our home page:

Now Hiring: @U2 Forum Moderator(s)

With fans expecting a new U2 album and tour in the next several months, activity in the @U2 Forum is on the rise ... and is probably only going to keep rising through the album announcement (whenever it happens) and tour (whenever it happens).

With that in mind, we're looking to expand our excellent team of forum moderators!

You can read the full description of what we're looking for and the instructions to let us know of your interest in being part of the @U2 crew. We'd strongly prefer to find existing forum members to step in to the moderator role, but it's not required.


The full description and instructions to "apply" are here:

http://www.atu2.com/staff.html

Any questions, please let us know!

It's my dream to be a mod on this site, but I know I don't meet all the requirements. ::)

So good luck to everyone who applies!

There are seriously people that WANT to be moderators?

I thought it was just something that you got lumped with because you backed over a neighbour's cat in a previous life or something...

Is that how you ended up a moderator on the Australian Cat Protection League's website forum?

Nothing against any of the other mods, but I hope StrongGirl might decide to come back someday.  But family first.

Me too.  Both are mature and fair-minded, and I'd rather family get the role than outsiders.

It's gotta be something close to that. I'm a mod at a forum where I'm the biggest a-hol there; I signed in one day and mistakenly edited a quote I was simply trying to respond to. That's how I found out I'd been made a mod while I slept. I never did get any notification that I'd been drafted for the job.

Bottom line: if any forum anywhere would make me a mod, then there are no standards for the position whatsoever anywhere.

Having said that, good luck to our hopefuls here in this thread!   :D
