    As often happens, RL had the audacity to rear its ugly head and demand ever increasing amounts of Karassa Sedai's time- which, unfortunately, means that she's stepping down as our Director of Moderators. :( I want to thank her for all of her hard work in this role for the past few years, and wish her all the best with wrangling ALL THE THINGS. :hug

    This means that we will now be accepting applications for the position of Director of Moderators.

    Overview
    This position is an Executive position and as such will work closely with the Keeper. Because of the nature of this position, this Director will also work closely with the Director of Membership to enact bans in chat or on the forums. This Director will handle all issues that pop up with our chat ops and the appropriate forum mods.

    Requirements
    --must be a Senior Member with one year good standing
    --must be willing and able to spend at least 15 hours a week handling Departmental issues. Every three months around the full moon, this may be closer to 25.
    --must have chat operator experience or willingness to learn, and must have vBulletin forum moderator experience or willingness to learn. You must have experience with at least one of these.
    --must be extremely organized
    --must be able to employ tact and diplomacy, even with people you don't necessarily like or respect
    --must be a self-starter

    Duties
    --handle hiring, replacing, and training new chat ops and forum mods
    --will be second in line for all issues that pop up in community moderation (first in line is op/mod, second is Director, third is Keeper).
    --will make decisions as to appropriateness of consequences for actions that occur in forums or in chat (with advisement from Director of Membership, Keeper, and Amyrlin) in a timely manner
    --will enact temporary bans to forums (particularly CE) and chat
    --will keep records of all issues brought to light
    --will keep track of all operators, particularly with regards to time availability
    --ensure that our chat rooms have at least one op in them at all times (this ties in with the above point)
    --serve as sounding board for Amyrlin and Keeper as an Executive
    --work with other Directors, particularly the Director of Community Development, for forum and chat events, and particularly the Director of Membership for coordination of actions that pass from Department of Moderators to Membership
    --will handle any complaints about how issues have been handled by ops/mods
    --quarterly reports to Amyrlin and Keeper

    Please send your applications to amyrlin@tarvalon.net and keeper@tarvalon.net with the subject "APPLICATION - DIRECTOR OF MODERATORS - YOURNAME HERE" by July 23rd. In your application, be sure to explain why you feel you would be best for the position and what you think you can bring to it, as well as what you think your general moderating style would be. Also please discuss what you think of our current level of moderation and any changes you think should be put into place.

    Good luck to all the applicants, and thank you again Karassa Sedai for all of your hard work!

    Well, it's not like anyone who has access to the moderators/chat op forum could already see who it is yesterday...

    It's not been posted in there, I guess we could assume based on the moderators of those forums, but who pays attention to those sort of things?

    People who are very, very angry and are past the point of caring if their anger is offensive. (I'm not poking at Raam, Yele, or Paxam, no worries.)
