    Wanted: New RedsZone Moderators

    All,

    GIK and I have collectively made the decision that it's time to replace the current moderators with a fresh set of people. This is something that has previously been suggested over the years in much the same way as elected officials, and after some discussion on the matter, we agree with the idea. I want to note that this is not an indictment on any of our current moderators, as we've let them know that we greatly appreciate the time and effort they've put into the site over the course of a couple of years (and in some cases, beyond).

    As a result, we are seeking new moderators for 1). The Old Red Guard and all forums, including Non-Baseball forums, with the exception of The Sun Deck and its related game thread sub-forum and 2). The Sun Deck and related game thread sub-forum. You are only eligible to apply for the position related to the baseball forum you can currently post in. If a Sun Deck moderator is voted into the Old Red Guard, the moderator tag will move along with the user from The Sun Deck to the ORG.

    We will not set any limit on the number of moderators we will appoint; that is completely dependent on the number of qualified candidates that apply. If you're wondering how much time is required to be spent on the site in order to be a moderator, we've never set any formal limit, but I will say that you must be around regularly enough that you can capably perform the responsibility. All moderators will be given access to 1). an ad-free version of the site and 2). a private forum that can be accessed only by administrators and moderators for moderator discussion, questions, etc.

    This announcement will tentatively run until the end of the calendar year and at that point, we will make a decision. Any user in good standing with the site is eligible to apply regardless of the amount of time you've been here. If you wish to apply, please send a private message to BOTH GIK and I. In your message, please briefly state why you feel you are a good candidate, if you have previous experience in moderating forums and any other relevant information. If you have/do moderate another forum, please include the URL and your user name on that forum. If you have any questions, please post them below.

    Hello!

    Are you also accepting nominations for moderator? I am asking because I am not convinced that the crème de la crème of the moderating world would consist entirely of those who are eager to volunteer.

    Sure, but we have to know that there is ample interest from the party you're nominating, obviously.

    While this could be true, I also think the opposite is true. People who have moderated before know what it takes, so they might be more apt to volunteer.

    The unofficial application deadline has now passed; thanks to all those that applied. GIK and I will be reviewing the applicants ASAP, make a decision and inform everyone of the choices in this thread.

    Re: Wanted: New RedsZone Moderators

    All,

    Thank you for your patience during this process. GIK and I had a chance to discuss the applicants and have selected the following moderators for all forums with the exception of the Sun Deck and its related game thread subforum:

    Brutus the Pimp
    dabvu2498
    GADawg
    Gallen5862
    Johnny Footstool
    Plus Plus
    The Operator

    We did not receive enough applicants for Sun Deck moderators, so we will not be appointing anyone to specifically moderate that forum. As a result, we will heavily rely on users to report posts that clearly violate the rules of the board, as is generally the case today.

    Please welcome the folks mentioned above to this new position and we thank everyone who applied for the position. I expect this change to be made within the next 24 hours. Once again, thank you to all the moderators who have voluntarily offered their time to keep this site running. It's a tremendous help that GIK and I sincerely appreciate.

    Sun Deck is calling its own fouls. Yikes!
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    I don't know much about what it takes or what the job entails but I'd like to be a moderator. Thanks.

    To echo what Gallen said, if there are ever any questions, the list of moderators can be found at the bottom of the page.

    I'm always happy to discuss decisions with people. Sometimes communication and clarification can be a wonderful thing.

    I'm really surprised they didn't pick me.
