1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.
    Dismiss Notice
  3. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.

  4. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.

    Our mod team has openings for two, maybe three, new mods. We're specifically looking for folks to be able to be around during the early mornings and midday(0400-1400 EST / 0800-1800 GMT).

    If you are interested, please send me a PM with the following questions answered:

    1) What times are you active? (in GMT)

    2) Do you feel you are familiar with the QQ community?

    3) Why do you feel you will make a good moderator?

    4) What do you think proper conduct is for a moderator?

    5) What do you think the purpose of a moderator is?

    Selection will take a while as the team discusses who we will pick, so please be patient once you've sent in your application.

    I hope the current team isn't too overworked and I will pray for anyone foolish brave enough to take the job.

    Quick change: We're wanting people from 4am to 2pm EST, or 8am to 6pm GMT. I wrote the time wrong in the OP, it's been edited now.

    If you ever need a person with a great moral character of being shady but a hard fun stickler for rules.

    Im your guy. I will work hard to make QQ a place of great peace and order that no other sister site will ever forget.

    It will be a new age of active listening and tuff love.

    Unfortunately I only cover a portion of the requested time, so I'm not sure I'm what your looking for.

    Think there is a slight problem there, "6 pm" would be "1800". Either you wrote your "quick change" wrong, or you edited the true hours right.

    I would happily be a mod, but I don't want to do the job. I just want the perks...essentially I want executive power over the forum with no oversight and no responsibility. Is that okay?

    I'm willing to throw my hat in to the ring, I am unemployed at the moment so I'm free all day usually from 9 am to 11 pm GMT on and off. I feel like I understand the community even if I can be a bit of a lurker, I think I would make a good Mod because I really like the atmosphere on this forum, and I want to help.

    Question 4 and 5 are rather linked so here is my answer to both I think a mod should be there, to nudge things when matters are getting out of hand as a heat debate, and lay down the law when needed, and that is what I think a mod should be some one to help when asked and to keep order so people don't ruin the site for other.

    Please feel free to pm with any other questions.

    I would be an awesome mod but I have an unreliable schedule, and mornings are the least available times for me, so I'm not going to apply for this round.

    Hope you get good folks.

    If it makes you feel any better, I didn’t even notice the questions the first time around.

    Yeah, that timing is probably the worst it could possibly be for me. Plus, I'm only really active in the creative subforums. Oh well, probably wouldn't have wanted to apply anyways...
