It's about that time. As the Bloody Elbow community continues to grow, so does the need to keep the herd in check. Overall you guys and gals are awesome and we don't have to deal with morons very often, but that's not all a moderator does. There's behind-the-scenes work - fetching my beers, delinting Nate's hats, you know. Difficult stuff. You might even have to send out football tweets every 10 seconds for Mookie if he needs a bathroom break.
Seriously though, we are in need of some good people to help out with the moderation of the site. It would involve spending some time each day making sure that the commenters stick to the few rules we have around here, and also helping out with the onslaught of spam, which has become an increasing annoyance over the past year or so.
Instead of coming up with something witty and amusing that will get some folks interested in the position, I'll just do what I do best - copy and paste. RIGHT? This is how Nate defined what we're looking for in a prior mod cattle call:
And for the rest of you who care about the BE community, we're looking for another few members who've been around for a decently long time and have established yourself as a trusted and respected member of the community who are insane enough to be interested in wasting even more precious time helping us keep the community from going completely to hell in a handbasket as a moderator with not only the power to hide offensive comments but the temptation to invoke the dreaded Rule #4 at random intervals on unsuspecting n00bs.
If you're interested post a comment in this thread and let the community judge you for your effrontery and lust for power.
Preferential treatment will be given to those who make outstanding, frequent or, even better, frequent outstanding contributions to the FanPosts.
Wow, that was one seriously long sentence at the start there.
So, that's about it. Post a comment if you're willing to step up. You might get many recs and have a bunch of people back you for the job. Or you might end up like Brenda did when he applied - with no recs, no props, and no shoes. Just a lame nickname and a whole lot of ridicule. Who hired him anyway? I know it wasn't me. Maybe it was Anton.
Anyway, get to it folks.
