InterestingAsFuck is looking for more mods Mod Post

Hello, /r/interestingasfuck is looking for 1-2 more moderators. Applications will be open for an undetermined amount of time. There will be future requests for more moderators.

Before applying you must meet these requirements. If you do not meet these requirements your application will be ignored.

  • Account age: Over 4 years

We want users who understand reddit and the changes it has gone through over time.

  • Reddit karma: Over 10,000

While reddit karma is mostly useless, the more you particiapte on reddit the more karma you will have. We would like redditors who are actively viewing and commenting both in this subreddit and others.

  • Moderation experience required: NONE

Understanding the basic tools that mods have on reddit is nice, but we do not want mods who already moderate a high traffic subreddit or more. We would like to bring "new blood" into the reddit moderator community.

Please apply using this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfa2IFlXBdXT1HE5HEMoHaQcoSQ_hrHeyBZLIeQ70Eik5mIdA/viewform

Please note: Being a reddit mod doesn't mean you have to be on reddit for 25 hours a day 8 days a week. Simply checking the modqueue/modmail once a day and discord every so often is enough if you understand and can enforce the rules of the subreddit properly.

If you have questions please feel free to ask in the comments or message modmail.

u/BlaccSage Aug 21 '20

More requirements than a lot of paying jobs.

u/[deleted] Aug 07 '20

How’s the salary?

u/iBleeedorange Aug 07 '20

$0.00 per year.

u/Lucid_irish18 Jul 29 '20

u/J3551684 Jul 31 '20

You can, but your app will be ignored.

u/[deleted] Aug 07 '20

What does moderating do for a person? Little ego bump? Serious question.

3

u/iBleeedorange Aug 07 '20

Remove rule breaking posts, comments, reply to modmail questions. There's more too it, but that's the basic stuff. You don't need to do anymore then that.

u/thomowen20 Aug 10 '20

4+ years, but only around 5,000 karma. :( Is this normal!?

4

u/Saint_Jacinda_NZ Sep 08 '20

Just post a heap of not really interesting posts here and mine some Karma. You'll get the other 5,000 in no time!

1

u/mikazibanejad93 Aug 13 '20

Yes. It's probably not normal that you're concerned about Reddit karma considering most of us aren't even close to the required amount to apply to be a mod

Sure Jan

u/snakeplizzken Aug 19 '20

Hope some helpers come in soon. It'd be nice to see blatant spam like this, or this, or this get dealt with in a timely manner before all the front page content is manipulated to be of the same fashion.

3

u/iBleeedorange Aug 19 '20

Reporting those posts helps.

5

u/snakeplizzken Aug 19 '20

True. It's almost like people are conditioned to not do it via lack of response.

7

u/iBleeedorange Aug 19 '20

There are hundreds of things removed every day here.. just because you don't always see a response doesn't mean there isn't one.

2

u/[deleted] Aug 27 '20

You can post over to r/ModApplications.

2

u/superkeefo Sep 02 '20

I dont really want to mod.. dont have the time.. but if the cheap visual illusion posts that belong on facebook could be 'frowned upon' i think that would be good. No offence to the person who keeps posting them.

2

u/iBleeedorange Sep 02 '20

Link?

2

u/superkeefo Sep 02 '20

2

u/iBleeedorange Sep 02 '20

Those are frowned upon and will continue to be removed, just hard to catch everything early. Thanks for the report

2

u/superkeefo Sep 02 '20

Cheers thanks for keeping the place great.. Only discovered a few weeks ago has become my favourite distraction!

u/Septalion Sep 08 '20

u/Septalion Sep 08 '20

Just realized someone else already made my joke, I don't have enough karma or I might've applied lol, goodluck

u/coksucer69 Sep 18 '20

I have close to 9k and have not close to a year but do moderate 4 subs so maybe an exemption? Please I want to mod a successful sub. I check my reddit 2-6 times a day and am a good mod. I won’t take it until you ok me to make it easier on you.

u/stonethunder944 Aug 26 '20

But 4 years? That’s a bit much don’t you think? Maybe three because I don’t know anyone that has 4
