New Mod Applications

Artists Beware is seeking to bring new members onto our team.

Only users who are 18+ are eligible to apply as our staff may view NSFW material.

Before we start here is the Moderator Code of Conduct.

What we need:

  1. All moderators must use the moderator discord. This is non negotiable. There is both a desktop and a mobile version. We have to be able to reliably get a hold of you.
  2. Availability in the US Timezones. All moderators work in pairs or more, so we need someone who can communicate with the group at large when we're discussing posts.
  3. You must be able to handle disagreements politely and courteously. There will be instances where decisions about a beware will be split between your fellow moderators.  In that case a vote will be held.
    1. You must be able to be comfortable being wrong or having been mistaken.  It's ok if you are, but we expect mods to handle these moments maturely and gracefully.
  4. You must be able to handle harassment and disagreement from users professionally. We will not tolerate "clap backs" or aggressive behavior.  However, we do not expect you to respond to aggressive users indefinitely.  We allow mods to leave aggressive users "on read".  Users who cross the line via threats or harassment will be banned.
  5. Estimated working hours varies. It can be a few minutes worth of work per day, or sometimes a few hours per week. It's entirely dependent on queue load.
  6. Potential moderators do not have to field user questions or moderate comments if they don't want to. We are looking for queue moderators primarily.  Queue moderators will still have to deliver Revision or Rejection notices.
  7. You must be able to keep the contents of the queue and any PMs you receive confidential. Failure to do so will result in your immediate removal from the team.

Some notes:

  1. Given how the site's notification structure is set up, you will receive a lot of emails.  Every submission and comment is emailed to all staff.  Most of us have AB only emails for this purpose.
  2. Previous moderation experience isn't required, but it is helpful.  We will walk you through how to use the site's moderation system.

What to Expect:
Individuals who are chosen will be interviewed, and then will enter in a training period with the other moderators via Discord. During this period, if there's more than one of you, we will ask that work be limited to the times a senior member is online.  Once the training period is over, then you are free to work in any pair or more at any time.

Please fill out this form, and the applications will be open until May 15th, 2024.  To apply comment to this thread.  Your replies will be screened, thus invisible to everyone but current staff.

Length in Artists Beware: (How long have you been a member, including Livejournal)
Hours of Availability: (The hours you will best be able to do queue work.  Make sure and denote what time zone.)
Previous Experience: (Have you moderated before?)
Other Items to Know: (Are you a commission artist? Fursuit maker? Fluent in another language besides English?)
Best way to contact you?: (site PM, discord, email, etc.)
