WE NEED MODERATORS (lemmy.blahaj.zone)
submitted 10 months ago* (last edited 10 months ago) by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Hey there guys! After today's fiasco, I decided that we need some moderators that aren't me or Ada. If you would like to be a moderator, please reply to this post with why you think you would be a good mod, and any previous social medias that I can check out just to make sure you're not a troll (reddit is the most useful but twitter/mastodon/whatever works too).

I'm high as balls right now so I'll respond to these messages tomorrow

Well I'm glad this is happening I was just trying to reply to your previous post but it turned out it was removed in the process of me writing the comment. The short of it was that a community of almost 10k needs more than one mod, because while there are three mod accounts two are you and the third is a dead account. Please do your absolute best when deciding who to give moderation control over 196 as I don't doubt there will almost certainly be bad actors who try to get mod so they can sabotage this place, it sure wouldn't be the first time this community has been targeted.

[-] [email protected] 24 points 10 months ago

Yeah totally. I've needed more moderators for a while now, but I've been really worried about bad actors. I know what might seem drastic to some to ask for alternate socials and shit but seriously I feel like its more than necessary at this point

[-] [email protected] 1 points 10 months ago

To me it feels like you take this seriously and are invested in the community, which I love to see. I hope it gets easier with new helping hands and I really like this instance, thank you for your amazing work

I'm a former moderator of reddit's nonbinary meme sub, and current moderator of chaotes vs patriarchy and soulism 101. Very left, and very plugged into forms of ableism and transphobia that might not be apparent to the vast majority of people.

[-] [email protected] 15 points 10 months ago

Heyo, figured I'd try to apply here.

I hate bigots, tankies, and nazis. I like shitposts, not posts that are shit.

I currently am co-admin of a discord server of 200+ people (but like 30 or so that are active every day), and was elected when the admin left.

Here's my personal mastodon page for reference: https://todon.eu/@queue

Probably not going to be chosen, but I wanna help.

Welcome aboard! Here's the rules: join the discord link I sent you via DM. If you feel someone deserves to be banned please send their username/a screenshot of them to the discord, along with why they need to be banned i.e. image of their comment reason:transphobia. Then you can go ahead and ban them. If I end up feeling like it's not actually a bannable offense I'll go in and restore them to the community. Also, no making other people mods.

Hey there, social worker from germany here, working in sexual paedagogics, willing to give some time to weed through the hate.

No mod experience, no reddit poweruser, but from my profile should be clear that i am no troll/asshole

Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/user/No-Mycologist921

If you have more questions i am happy to answer them

Best wishes

[-] [email protected] 3 points 10 months ago

Just a heads up, once a mod marks a report as resolved, the admins won't see it, so if someone needs to be banned from the whole instance, make sure you drop me a DM

[-] Entheon 13 points 10 months ago

What happened today? Something bad?

[-] [email protected] 16 points 10 months ago

A post ended up with a lot of transphobia in the comments, apparently.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 10 months ago

thats what I want to know as well.

[-] [email protected] 11 points 10 months ago

I would make a terrible mod

[-] [email protected] 10 points 10 months ago

Not sure how many mods you're looking to add but I'd like to help out. I'm a speech/debate coach for elementary through college level competors so while I don't have moderating experience online I perform very similar duties on my day-to-day jobs... You would not believe the shit that comes out of the mouths of 9y/o children.... Before migrating over to federated systems, on reddit I was u/AudioBoss. I'm a dirty trans commie (they/them); I don't fuck with tankies, fascists, TERFs, etc. I got halfway through a masters program in human communication with an emphasis on critical/cultural studies (studies of activism, oppressive systems, meta-studies of Academia, etc) before dropping out to raise a kid coming in January.

I work with kids so I have a ton of viable experience towards moderating you all /j

Questions: how much time would you expect each mod to dedicate each day or week? How often (if ever) would the mods discuss the community?

[-] [email protected] 2 points 10 months ago

Oh kickass In terms of time commitment, it's really just logging on whenever you feel like it and checking what's in the mod panel. Usually it's one or two things but every now and then there will be some troll inflection or whatever so having more moderators to nip stuff like that in the bud is useful. Anyways here's the copypasta: Welcome aboard! Here’s the rules: join the discord link I sent you via DM.

Sh.itjust.works doesn't just work. Here's my new account.

[-] thiamari 6 points 10 months ago

I would be happy to assist in modding during my free time :) On reddit, I went by u/thiamari, and on twitter, I’m @ItsCynthiaTime. I’ve since abandoned reddit and only post on twitter occasionally, never browse. I really enjoy being in the 196 community, and I wouldn’t mind helping out with some stuff if it means more people will post, making the community better :3

[-] [email protected] 6 points 10 months ago

I’ll volunteer as tribute. I might be good moderator because I am a nearly professional lurker and strongly prefer my social networks supportive and funny and not overrun with bad. My Reddit account is u/buttercup614 for background check purposes.

[-] SuperApples 5 points 10 months ago

Yep, you can get mod. Just press the shortcut keys alt+f4 and you will be given mod status.

Moss's alt has left the chat.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 10 months ago

Heloo, I am very normal and can be trusted with power.

[-] HerbalGamer 4 points 10 months ago

No experience but happy to learn and to much time on my hands that ought to be used for something good.

Can do it in drag as well, if needed.

[-] VelvetStorm 4 points 10 months ago

Off the bat I can tell you I have never been a mod before but I am mostly active between 9pm and 6am cst so anything that gets posted late at night I can remove before most people would get to even see it.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 10 months ago

I've never modded. I don't have a extensive post history that you can check out. But I sure as heck wouldn't let bigotry flood my favorite shitposting sub.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 10 months ago

I am Lorelai, I created this sublemmy :) @[email protected]

[-] [email protected] 3 points 10 months ago* (last edited 10 months ago)

Hey, I'd be happy to mod. I have a decent amount of free time and I have had some experience moderating in the past, including one small subreddit where I had to deal with regular brigading and trolls.

Reddit: u/piraka-the-plant (also u/pirakaplant but I deleted that account after Reddit decided I was being very mean to a certain human trafficker and permanently suspended it)

[-] [email protected] 3 points 10 months ago

I'll volunteer, I don't have a ton of free time but it would be enough to help here. I'd say I've been pretty active on Lemmy Blahaj, so I know how it works around here and I was also very active on 196, it helped me realize I was trans myself. I mod a discord server with a little over 1,000 members so I could probably do pretty well modding here.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 10 months ago

I am stubborn enough to put my foot down with shills and bigots from other instances, so I'd be happy to help out with yours.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 10 months ago

I would love to assist in any way but I’m not sure I can from another server

[-] [email protected] 1 points 10 months ago

You can, moderator reports are handled through the Modlog which is federated. I'm speaking from experience, I've moderated [email protected] from two instances at this point, neither of which were lemmy.world.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 10 months ago

In that case, I’d like to volunteer. I‘d like to contribute to the fediverse in a way that makes a difference. I want to see these communities grow. I spent 12 years (nearly half my life) on Reddit and never did much. I hope 12 years from now Lemmy will have grown in a way that’s healthy.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 10 months ago

I'd like to be a mod for this community. In terms of why I'm a good fit, I really like the c/196 community and the positivity with which it shitposts, and I will apply full discretion to remove nazis, trolls, bigots, and other troublemakers from our community. In terms of social media, I'm active with this account, I have activity on my alt @[email protected], and my Reddit username from before I migrated over is u/TheSaneWriter. Though I wasn't the most active user, I still participated here and there over the few years I spent on Reddit.

[-] Korne127 2 points 10 months ago

I generally would love to, but I just have way too much on my plate right now and not the time to really focus on it.
Mainly just writing this here so I might reference it sometimes in the future haha.
Good luck on your search though :)

[-] [email protected] 1 points 10 months ago* (last edited 10 months ago)

I am a human adult with a job, I will give an average amount of effort but I'm also honest about it. My handle on Reddit was Vlaxxtocia because my finger slipped and I didn't notice until I'd already liked a bunch of shit and didn't want to start over

[-] abbotsbury 1 points 9 months ago

I've had experience moderating niche message boards that often got spammed with sometimes hateful stuff, so I can look at reports and delete any bigoted/jerkass content to spare others. Anything beyond obviously harmful content, I'd prefer to leave to delegate to others unless there is a community guidelines that makes it clear what kind of stuff is/n't allowed.

[-] jeffw 1 points 9 months ago

I would like to be a mod so that I can remove this post for not having “rule” in the title

[-] [email protected] 2 points 9 months ago

Denied 🤗

[-] [email protected] 1 points 9 months ago

I know I'm late and you've probably picked up enough many people already. Either way, here's my Linktree. Instagram, which I use "the most" bcs that's where my friends are, is at the bottom.

I avoid social media for the most part, but I've taken to 196 and Lemmy a lot.

Everything I've seen from the mods makes me think we'd agree on pretty much everything. I'd love to help where I can and meet cool new people in the process.

Whether or not I'm even needed I can at least use the fact I have your attention to thank you for upkeeping one of the best & funniest queer-friendly spaces I've found. Much love :)

[-] [email protected] 1 points 9 months ago

I only saw this post today but I would like to be a mod. I spend about 1-2 hours a day on Lemmy and could use that to mod this community. I don't have any other social media to show but you can look at my post/comment history here on lemmy if you'd like
