[mod] Apply To Become a Moderator! Mod

Hey everyone, come apply to become a moderator!

Once again, we're opening up moderator applications. No previous experience is required. We'll provide all the necessary training you'll ever need. If you're an active member with a passion for this community, I strongly recommend applying!

Being a moderator isn't just about banning people - it's also about working as a team, having fun, and shaping the community into something better. If you're interested, please apply!

Eligibility requirements:

  • Must be a teenager (age 13-19)
  • Must be in good standing (no recent serious issues with the mod team).
  • Must speak and write English fluently.
  • Must be willing to actively use Discord (join us at https://discord.gg/teenagers !) as a means of official communication with the teams.
  • Must be a member of the community for 60 days or more (the subreddit for Reddit applicants, the server for Discord applicants).

Bonus points:

  • Asia/EU timezone
  • Knowledge of graphic design in marketing

Reddit application: https://forms.gle/bkgRVjuKGRVvjxoBA

Discord application: https://forms.gle/kFnbzhTrzt86brGv6

There are more important details listed on the application itself, and you should find all information you need on the forms. Applications will close November 28th, 2021 at 23:59 GMT OR forms will individually close once caps are hit. We ask you to set aside 20-30 mins to write detailed answers and to not delay sending one in. Unfortunately, if you cannot apply due to the cap being hit or the deadline passed, we are unable to take the entry.

We can't wait to read your applications!

FAQ:

Q: Are the mods 30-year-olds?

I see nothing wrong, just mods having the time of their life moderating this subreddit.

Mods: "Apply to become a moderator!"

Also mods: "SOMEBODY SHOOT ME I'M IN HELL!!!"

In conclusion, I'll pass.

u/Outside_Drawing 14 Nov 26 '21

No. That is banned in reddits moderation TOS

u/sleepyboi08 2 MILLION ATTENDEE Nov 15 '21

there’s a 21 year old pedo on this subreddit who constantly makes hornyposts in /new/ and flirts with children. i really hope the new mods ban him once and for all, but unfortunately he continues to ban-evade.

28

u/emyb933 Nov 15 '21

I really wish that they had a mod in their 20s for this reason. I just feel like having someone a little older with a good head on their shoulders can help this page evade pervs.

u/cactibob Nov 17 '21

We’ll call him “The Pedo Patrol”

12

u/Glitchine 13 Nov 18 '21

Plot twist he is a pedo himself

u/cactibob Nov 18 '21

Exactly. Looking out for any possible opportunity to pedo it up with the local ladies on r/teenagers.

the Premature Police

u/hideuntiltheyfindme 18 | discord.gg/teenagers Nov 19 '21

I know. We're trying our best to get rid of him, but we're out of tools. We can just keep banning and banning as Reddit isn't doing enough to block his new accounts.

7

u/sleepyboi08 2 MILLION ATTENDEE Nov 19 '21

hey hide, thanks for the reply. i hope you’re doing well. this dude has been a nightmare for users of /new to deal with, so i couldn’t imagine how much harder it must be for the mod team. hopefully reddit admins can take action.

this dude has also used the subreddit to admit that he’s committed illegal activity, so here’s hoping he’ll get arrested lol

thanks for all you do for the community :) i don’t think i can apply for mod this time around, but i’m grateful that people like you aim to make the subreddit a safer place.

2

u/[deleted] Nov 25 '21

Weird, I was suspended once (due to upvoting my own post on an alt, pretty dumb on my part), both my account, the alt, and another alt (wasn't involved) got banned, i.e an IP ban. Reddit should have the tools to ban them

4

u/Dodoboomer 15 Nov 20 '21

Time to send them to horny jail

u/Ok_Suggestion_5270 Nov 16 '21

Imagine having no life, and then you become a mod.

and suddenly you get tonns of text from ppl who cant USE THE FKIN MOD-MAIL.

Can I be a mod without discord my mom doesn’t want me having discord

u/ABlazingLife 17 | eboy <3 Nov 16 '21

Unfortunately that is not possible, as we use discord for all mod communication. Sorry :/

4

u/[deleted] Nov 16 '21

Why do you only use discord? You might be missing out on some great mods.

4

u/ycx_xo Nov 20 '21

Probably because Discord is easier for communication according to a lot of people

1

u/[deleted] Nov 21 '21

I can’t use discord. Discord was not created for people with ADD! Between the feeds and comments and…squirrels

u/hideuntiltheyfindme 18 | discord.gg/teenagers Nov 15 '21

Yes, you can apply for a position on the Reddit team!

u/Socks_with_sauce 14 Nov 15 '21

Hopefully whoever becomes a mod knows how to use capital letters correctly.

I’d be willing to try but I don’t use discord alot and I only joined like a month ago lmao. So I’m probably passing.

u/duck_bread5 13 Nov 15 '21

I applied even though I’d probably be terrible at moderating.

u/[deleted] Nov 16 '21

Don’t underestimate yourself! Also, remember that you are your best PR. You can control how you are perceived. Never say you’d be bad at something you haven’t tried. (Mom advice. I just joined in hopes of making sense of some things my kids say.)

u/duck_bread5 13 Nov 16 '21

Thank you random internet stranger. Very kind and wise of you to spread this knowledge to me. Tyvm :)

Milk, cream, cheese, it's all me. And I don't see a nickel! Sometimes I just feel like a piece of meat! I had no idea. Barry, I'm sorry. Have you got a moment? Would you excuse me?

No, because thats where all mod communications would be

u/VelvetTornado 15 Nov 16 '21

What are the specifics of the activity on reddit and discord. How many messages are you expected to send in the discord and activeness in reddit to be valid as a chance for mod?

Do we still get to be a mod if we turn 20?
