Since (most) people have been civil since the reopening of chat, I have reopened the apps. We do need more to regulate things when other mods may not be around.
There are some things that need to be mentioned. Here are the things I can think of off the top of my head:
- All current temp mods need to reapply. This is for the sake of fairness.
- Mods who were mitigated over from spwc (after chat reopened) do not need to reapply.
- Only 5 new mods will be selected, then the app request page will be suspended until further notice. I feel 5 new people on board should suffice in tandem with the ones we already have. This is subject to change if unforeseen circumstances arise.
- Applicants should familiarize themselves with the chat rules before applying. We expect you to be strict with them too. Chat got shut down over the summer mostly due to people's immaturity. As I said in my last thread (about chat reopening), chat will be shut down permanently if this happens again. Its fate is in all of our hands.
I'm sure there will be other questions, but that's all I can think of right now. Please leave other questions you may have below, and we will answer them as soon as we can.
Anyway, go vote/apply if you feel like you can handle it and meet the requirements!
EDIT: Due to the large number of applicants in a short time-span, I'm setting the app submission deadline for tomorrow (10/2/2014). If you want to run you only have until then to submit your app, before I close voting. After tomorrow, the admin team will make their decision on who we are selecting. This also means I'll be dropping the individual deadlines I set for current applicants as they will now be redundant.
TL;DR - If you want to be a chat mod, you have until tomorrow to get your app in.
EDIT 2: Chat mod apps are now closed. I will be going through the apps and will make my decision on the five new moderators today.
