Hello, fellow members. It is that time again. Please read through the information below if you are interested in being a moderator on this site. The plan is to recruit a small but fair amount of new moderators during this session. I wish you all the best in the application process.

You may ask questions on this topic, but irrelevant and unimportant questions will be deleted without hesitation-- repeat offenders may be banned. Global Moderators and the Forum Admin decide what questions fall under these categories.

Before you get to the application, you must understand the following instructions.

- The deadline for sending in applications is February 29th, 2016.
- You send your applications by private messaging DasakeUchiha.
- Being a moderator is a self-rewarding task where you are expected to be responsible, active and unbiased.
- Sharing information about your answers or any reply you may get from us is divulging classified information.
- All applications will be reviewed by the current staff and voted on to see who will make it to the second phase.
- If you are accepted for the second phase of the recruitment, then you'll be private messaged by a Global Moderator.
- Answer each part of the application to the best of your ability, with honesty and understanding what you're applying for.
- Being a moderator means you can speak English fluently. You can, however, be assigned to a Great Ninja Country section if you speak other languages.

You may be immediately rejected from the second phase of recruitment if you fall under one or more of the following circumstances.

- If you have committed site offenses.
- If you have been warned or banned several times.
- If you made your account within the past 6 months.
- If you were demoted from the moderator position before.
- If you are found sharing your information with other people.
- If you fill out any part of the application with false information.

If you want to be a moderator, and understand all the things described to you above, please fill out the following application.
Application wrote:
Personal information:

- What is your first name?
- How old are you? When is your birthday?
- What country do you live in? What is your timezone?

Naruto-Boards information:

- Your username?
- Your alternate accounts?
- Why do you want to be a moderator?
- How active are you on naruto-boards?
- Define what it means to you to be a good moderator.
- What do you think of current moderators as a whole?
- What qualities do you possess that would make you a good moderator?
- How well do you know the forum rules? How well do you know the section rules?
- What section do you want to be a moderator of? (You may list more than one, but listing many will not help your chances)
- What else do you wish to put into your application that does not fall under the above questions but you feel can help your chances?

- Sample moderator question:

A friend of yours approaches you in private messages to let you know that he has been posting on Naruto-Boards while banned with his [insert username] account, but will not do it anymore because he doesn't want to get in trouble. What is your reaction as a moderator?

Hey Das, no chance you guys still have the applications from the last recruitment that never got followed through, rather than re-doing it from scratch?

We want to give people a chance to apply if they didn't have the chance last year. We also didn't want to assume people who did apply still wanted the position. Re-doing it was an all around better option.

Last year's recruitment process was not seen through because admins ended up having other issues that could not be resolved fast enough to continue it.

That's fair mate. But I'm asking that if I did choose to re-apply, do you guys still have last years app that I could re-use now, or have they been deleted?

Oh, I'm sorry that I didn't understand. Last year's applications are on record, but you will have to redo it. If you had the application yourself, then I wouldn't mind you re-using it though.

It doesn't. It's a fact that post count somewhat shows activity, but there are many sections where post count is turned off, thus keeping that member from raising their own. So it is, indeed, not that important anyway.

Wouldn't this immediately bar several, if not most, members from becoming mod?
I ask because I am sure most of use have been warned several times at least
