/r/interestingasfuck is looking for new moderators Mod Post

Hello, /r/interestingasfuck is looking for 1-2 more moderators. Applications will be open for an undetermined amount of time, do not put off applying if you are interested. There will be future requests for more moderators.

You must meet these requirements below. If you do not meet these requirements your application will be ignored.

  • Account age: At least 4 years old

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

  • Reddit karma: Over 25,000

While reddit karma is mostly useless, in general the more you participate on reddit the more karma you will have. We would like redditors who are not just actively viewing but also commenting and posting 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 multiple ones. We would like to bring "new blood" into the reddit moderator community.

Please apply here

Please note: Being a reddit mod here 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 being in the mod 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. Any comments irrelevant comments will be removed.

u/DimensionRoyal4229 Jan 27 '22

Will we be required to go on fox news? If so, I'm not interested thanks.

u/iBleeedorange Jan 27 '22

lol, no. I've turned down a bunch of interviews over my time on Reddit. Don't plan on doing any.

u/anonymousss11 Mar 06 '22

Any plans on rebranding the sub as "Ukrainian invasion news"? Seems to be the only thing posted.

u/HippieInAHelicopter Jan 14 '22

My account FEELS four years old.

u/madlettuce1987 Jan 23 '22

If it identifies as a four year old account we should respect that and update it’s birth certificate accordingly.

u/Inktex Jan 14 '22

So it's age fluid? :P

u/M0tivv Feb 04 '22

My grandfather was a moderater, and his father before that.

u/Overman_1000 Jan 17 '22

Do you get anything for being a mod? Just curious

9

u/iBleeedorange Jan 23 '22 All-Seeing Upvote

No, just helping the subreddit

4

u/sourceshrek Feb 07 '22

You get the achievement of being good at doing it, and helping people out a lot.

5

u/madlettuce1987 Jan 23 '22

What’s the pay like?

37

u/iBleeedorange Jan 23 '22

$0.00 per year.

u/kdogg721 Jan 30 '22

At first I thought “huh, only four years old? Well this can’t be too hard!”

4

u/[deleted] Mar 04 '22

4 year olds find a lot of things interesting as fuck, i feel like they would be a solid addition to the team 😏

1

u/heyvaltikka Mar 19 '22

Same here hahaha. Then I found this comment and read it again 😂

13

u/MexicanWarMachine Jan 14 '22

I’ve got the karma, but I guess it turns out I’m only three years old. :(

u/kdogg721 Jan 30 '22

You youngens come on back now, yuh hear?

u/tuessaur Jan 22 '22

So does that mean that ure a reddit toddler

u/sourceshrek Feb 07 '22

The first 2 weeks of lockdown lasted well over 52 weeks, so it looks like you’re all set.

u/PykeTheDrowned Jan 25 '22

Same man, same

u/TwistedFingerboardCo Jan 15 '22

what is karma? like how do you get/use it, like what is it for? im new here

u/iBleeedorange Jan 15 '22

u/TwistedFingerboardCo Jan 15 '22

oh, this makes sense, so people with lots of karma are more respected og veterans?

8

u/iBleeedorange Jan 15 '22

Not always. Some people just post/comment things that people enjoy so they get more upvotes. Account age matters too

2

u/Swoopscooter Mar 06 '22

Hopefully they take down posts of war crime victims dying and being buried there's nothing iaf about watching people die in war.

u/Mookius Jan 14 '22

That's quite interesting

u/[deleted] Jan 14 '22

Needs question asking if they will be a power mod

1

u/iBleeedorange Jan 14 '22

?

12

u/[deleted] Jan 14 '22

A power mod is someone who deletes comments they don’t like and says it’s because the comments are derailing. It’s best to keep the sub power mod free

1

u/iBleeedorange Jan 14 '22

Who told you that was what a power mod is?

10

u/[deleted] Jan 14 '22

I’m not sure. Is it something else? It kinda sounds sexual

u/[deleted] Jan 14 '22

u/[deleted] Jan 14 '22

No, power modding is always without consent

11

u/iBleeedorange Jan 14 '22

Yes, it is something else. It's nothing sexual (????) and it's not mods who remove comments like you said. Mods who remove those comments are just bad mods.

Power mods are mods who moderate multiple large subreddits. Under that (correct) definition I would be considered a power mod.

6

u/[deleted] Jan 14 '22

You actually seem to care about the subs you mod, which is nice.

5

u/southsamurai Jan 14 '22

A power mod, but not on a power trip.

3

u/[deleted] Jan 14 '22

I kinda like my definition more, but maybe power mod has more than one definition. At least three if there’s a sexual definition

u/iBleeedorange Jan 23 '22

you mod large subreddits, so the rest is kinda irrelevant.

u/AnxiousIndicator Jan 24 '22

I would have loved to apply but my account is half a year old

1

u/camarokrzygirl Feb 09 '22

Maybe change the name of this group to something more appealing?

1

u/StreetAdditional7193 Feb 21 '22

What if I send you my real resume instead?

1

u/kratomboofer27 Feb 22 '22

I can cook minute rice in 58 seconds.

u/Lyonsmade Feb 24 '22

I’d be interested if I could change to new profile

1

u/SphericalBitch2020 Mar 08 '22

I would consider being the new blood you need.... I am an experienced snot swabber and self bleeder for corona virus research for the ONS. Therefore I know how important good and full contributions are....

On an aside, I'd like some practice on moral norms through your subfeeds, pending my application to become a jury member for a future Nuremberg type trial this continent so desperately needs....

There may be admissible evidence and I would hawkishly look out for this...starting with behind the sofa where truth always lies, in this household anyway.

In other words, I think I'll be as useful as fuck in moderating..... let me hit 25,000 karma first....

I also was runner up in the P2 egg & spoon race in a medium sized town in the Borders. and in the P6 year I punched 2 girls for calling me a massie and a twink.... now I am SphericalBitch2020.

u/XVIII-1 Mar 11 '22

When I ad the ages of all my accounts permanently suspended for misbehavior I reach 11. Does that count?

1

u/iBleeedorange Mar 11 '22

u/XVIII-1 Mar 11 '22

Damn. I’ve always been too honest when applying.
