A server move will likely be done in the near future to provide upgraded hardware. This could cause a few hours to a couple days of downtime.

I've just pruned a few > 4 weeks inactive mods, and we have almost nobody left. So, it's time to bring in some new mod team members.

If you'd like to mod Uboachan, please answer the questions below. I will skip qualifications and choose whoever I like the most. Just kidding. Probably.

Please note that if you don't regular on IRC, you almost certainly won't be chosen. Half of the community happens there, and we don't want a bunch of half-users modding the site.

* What is your tripname on the boards, if any?

* What is your nickname on the Uboachan IRC channel?

* How often are you on the Uboachan IRC channel?

* How long have you been visiting Uboachan?

* How often do you browse Uboachan?

* Why do you want to be a mod?

* During what times of day are you most likely to be available for modding? (Include your timezone.)

* ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?

This thread will be open for an unspecified amount of time, so get your applications in quick. Once the thread is locked, an announcement will follow with a list of who made the cut.

I'm sure we will eventually.

On the old board, there used to be CP spam bots and floods of shit all over the boards. I don't see a reason not to have a proper staff ready sooner rather than later.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, they say.

Needs to be an IRC regular?
Community?
"Half-users"?

And here I was thinking this was meant to find a new moderator for a *chan website, not a new PR guy

 No.94

>>93
PR guy? What are you talking about. The reasoning to the IRC bit is because we don't want a transparent user being a mod, one we can never really get in contact with or doesn't have a tangible presence. And yes, surprise! Half of the community does happen there, you'd be surprised but you clearly don't go on the IRC so you have no idea

Either way, it's not hard to become a 'regular' of the IRC. Spend a week or two and have fun. And not be an asshat.

You'd better check that reply of yours, I sure don't recall saying nothing happened on IRC. And you're clearly missing the point. It's a moderator, so as far as I know he's meant to take care of the boards

Damn, I wonder how all those other chan boards manage to do things without an IRC channel

You say I missed the point, but your point doesn't make sense. It isn't even relevant. How did you construe wanting an IRC regular into winding up having a "PR guy" for a moderator? I sort of already asked you what you meant and you didn't clarify.

Also, I don't need to recheck anything. You're imagining I misread you saying that half of the community didn't happen on IRC. That's not my intended point, but rather that you'd have no idea in the first place. The beginning was intended to be sardonic, not implying.

I hate to be condescending, but let me try and explain the reasoning behind wanting to have an IRC regular:

On IRC, it's a medium of real-time communication. You can check when people are on, you can see if they've been idle. It's faster than posting on a board. If an admin who spends a lot of time on the IRC (See: Seisatsu, the admin) wants to ensure that the moderator is active and can be reached easily (See: A real time communication medium), they'd likely want a regular of the IRC.

Not saying that being a regular will auto-get you a mod spot, I'd imagine that being a known member on the boards would help too. Also, what other boards do to stay running is pretty irrelevant. There's no universal way to manage a site and just because you don't like ours doesn't mean it's wrong. :V

I meant that you needed to be known and be "socially" active on the boards and/or IRC to be a mod. That's where the PR guy comment came from

Other than that, I'll put it down as simply as I can, because I don't think I'll be getting a straight answer otherwise: How does a being a regular on IRC translate into having useful moderator skills? And I'm asking because I've been a moderator for more than three years on chan boards of varying activity, and I truly cannot comprehend how it would help

You talked about real-time communication. It could be a valid point, but not on a website with so little activity. Unless there is another reason to need constant real-time communication which I'm not aware of. However, if there IS such a reason, nothing would stop the newly appointed moderator from using this chan's IRC channel from that point on, which makes the implied need to be a IRC regular before getting appointed as a mod painfully unnecessary, to say the least

>>101
yeah it's a pretty good idea to know who you're giving power to, since you want to make sure you trust this person with power over moderating the community, especially considering that the IRC is active nearly constantly. there is always at least two people talking at all times of the day, reaching 10 members all talking at once nonstop at times… much more than the boards, in total uboachan probably sees a few posts daily.

* What is your tripname on the boards, if any?
I just use the tongue-in-cheek Tripfagging for now, will change soon.

* What is your nickname on the Uboachan IRC channel?
Nekumata

* How often are you on the Uboachan IRC channel?
Every day or so

* How long have you been visiting Uboachan?
Over 2 years now

* How often do you browse Uboachan?
Every day. Yup. Mostly /fg/ and related boards.

* Why do you want to be a mod?
To be able to help with silly things. Like some other people said, it's messy sometimes.

* During what times of day are you most likely to be available for modding? (Include your timezone.)
4PM-10PM GMT+2

* ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?
NO!! I LOVE THE DARK~

The boards pretty much became infantile with the new shift, for some reason. Uboa has been busier than this and will probably end up getting that way again. An ounce of preparation, etc.

And honestly, the IRC doesn't have anything to do with modding skills. I understand better now where you were coming from on the PR bit, now. But the thing is, Seisatsu isn't asking for moderation skills. That isn't anywhere in the application, otherwise I'd agree with the fact that the IRC point is irrelevant to being a mod. But seeing as he's looking for fresh people with likely no experience in moderation at all, there's no reasoning against it being a larger requisite of becoming a mod. Otherwise, if he were looking for qualifications, I'd agree. The IRC would take a back-seat to skill, in that case.

Mainly the IRC is wanted for the real-time communication aspect, and the insurance that a person is alive and active more than checking the mod logs to see when they logged in.

When the board picks up again in due time, the capacity of IRC will be useful. Give it a month or so when everything's a bit more stable and we've got a few functions we lack. Sorry if I came off as an ass originally (I probably did, lol).

Also, good luck to all the recent applicants!

Holy shit I don't even know where to begin with you.

Seisatsu is the administrator. He's the one in charge of hiring new mods. Now take into account he's very active in IRC. He needs to know who you are and have opportunities to talk to you and idk interview you or give you guidelines on how to mod whenever he's able. If you're a regular on IRC, whenever he's able turns into whenever you're both online.

That and he's much more willing to hire someone he knows and has talked to and has gotten to know than random text on an anonymous site. Being a regular on IRC means he can assess your skills in dealing with a community in real-time. Otherwise he doesn't know who he's hiring.

Idiot.

That's fair enough. But since Uboachan will be busier soon, according to your prediction, that's all the more reason you guys should try to find a capable mod

And you didn't really come off as an ass at all, just a tad aggressive, but that's the way of the internet
