The FTB forum team is now looking to expand and add an additional new moderation team for the forums. We will be looking to recruit several moderators who will be responsible for monitoring content on the FTB forums. Amongst the responsibilities will be ensuring that forum topics are generally kept on topic and moving threads and posts to appropriate sections when needed. They will also be asked to ensure that members of the forums refrain from getting involved in heated exchanges where the topics of conversation cross the normal boundaries of what is and is not appropriate for a youth friendly forum. Previous experience of forum software is preferred but not essential, however a good understanding of general software technology is something that would be highly useful when learning how to use forum tools. Whilst FTB runs the forums, this is your community and we feel that moving forwards, the community should have a hand in helping to select the forum moderators. Our proposal for the selection of mods is as follows: You can either volunteer yourself, or nominate someone else on the forums that you feel would be appropriate for the role. If you are volunteering yourself, you will need to find at least 2 other existing members in good standing to second and third your nomination. If you are volunteering someone else, you will need to find one other member (excluding the nominated member) to third the nomination. From there, depending on how many names we get, we will pick from the nominated members. If there are a wide spread of nominations, we will look to hold a form of election where the community can have a greater say in who will be eligible to be invited to become a moderator. When choosing people for the role of moderator we will be looking for the following skills and experience. Length of time of membership on FTB forums. Post history. Standing in community. Previous forum moderation experience. If you are interested in either nominating yourself or someone else, please fill in the following form and submit it to this topic. Additionally, if you wish to second or third a candidate, please post your recommendations here as well. We will move to the next stage in a couple of weeks. After you have submitted your application to this topic and have accrued the necessary seconds and thirds, please edit your post with permalinks containing said nominations . Example: We look forward to your nominations!
