I'd like to be a forum mod, Wade, I don't lose my temper easily and don't abuse my power. I've moderated many forums. And for those mods out there, the best role model for a mod is probably Ozcar, he has a good sense of humour and bans people that breach the rules. I've been banned twice, I admit, but one was not even done by me (check the i.p address). I don't talk in 1337, and have good control over my grammar. And who really cares about post count? Most of the noobs on Newgrounds have over 1,000 posts anyway. If a person comes up and flames me for being a mod (assuming I will become one) I will ignore them, and not ban them. Other than that, I'd like to be a review mod, cause some of the reviews make me laugh.

This is fun. Liane, here, probably posting with the ultimate mass of people and may or may not have a chance (my little shed of hope is gone!) I've been sauntering through Newgrounds since the early days of 2002 with another account. Given the choice, I would choose a review mod, as I spend most of my time on Newgrounds in the flash portal and toons.

I pretty much just watch and observe trends. I'm online often, but I don't submit flash or audio, I sometimes vote, I rarely write reviews, and post few. Some contributing member I am, hah.

I'm usually online 1:00 am to 4:00 am odd hours, and during most peak hours (7:00-8:00, 9:00 - 11:00 pm weekdays, and a hovering mass during the weekends)

So are we to expect that any requests made will actually be considered? Is there actually a chance that anyone with a reasonable post will get selected? Or is this just a 200-PAGE GET topic done for some other elaborate or nonsensical reason?

Ever since I've been coming to this site, I've noticed that brilliant flashes often get bogged down by abysmal reviews. I don't mind it at all if the person who handed out the 0 had a logical explanation with valid support as to why he/she gave the 0. Unfortunately, "nice" 0's are extremely rare. More often than not, you get the "omFg suxx0r! Burn in HELL!" 0 that does horrors for the review average as well as the author's esteem. I, for one, am sick of this, and for these reasons, I'd love to be a review mod. I spend about 2-4 hours at Newgrounds on weekdays (anywhere from 2:00pm eastern to 12:00am) and 3-5 hours on weekends (anytime). With the new whistle system and review mods, I've had several abusive reviews erased from my movies, and I can't tell you how good it feels. I'd like to do the same for the other authors.

Actually I'm interested to see what people say. I have asked for nominations lately, and the well seems to be running dry. I thought this topic might be helpful not only to me, but to the mods, as they may see a user they didn't consider before, or learn more about a user they were considering nominating. I may see people that I like and nominate them, etc.

BTW, that's your 2nd reply. :)

Don't reply to this post, keep on topic, and stick to my rules as laid out in my first post. This post is just to clairfy things.

Well i would like to be a review mod to help out the site with the mass flagged reviews coming along lately.

As for forum mod would probably be my 2nd choice mostly cause i'm usually only on the BBS from the hours of 11pm to around 5-6am (that is an estimate) and i usually always see a bunch of crap topics and not that many mods on to do something about it so if i could be a forum mod it would have to be like a night shift.

Forum mod> Review mod > audio Mod > Icon Mod

ok the reason i chose Forum mod is probaly the same reason as most other peoples, becasue im on the forums the lot, i lurk around the forums, i have only ever been banned once... and that was for posting in a spam thread... i was weak... and im usually very active, plus i tend to have quite good spelling

being a Review mod would be good, but i cant say id be a very good one, i dont review much, and im not really in to flagging reviews, so, when you next chose someone to be a review mod... count me out

Audio mods... i never really go on the audio portal, i havnt made any audio, there are far more deserving people out there than me, so yeah, nope

again, if i were an icon mod, i would lose the job pretty quickly, i have no interessed in looking at, and making icons


Untill i have a Sig pic worthy of my grandness, i declare that all Sig pictures are reserved for Vain people with no lives :D

If I had the choice, I'd personally want to be a review moderator.

Being somewhat of an active user here on the forums and in portal for about two and a half years, I like to think that I have a decent understanding and knowledge of the rules of what is accepted and what is not. As most of the people here, I've done my fair share of mistakes. So, I know I'm probably not the best candidate for any of these positions but, if given the privileges, it would be a nice change to actually help out and give back to the site.

I'm usually logged on and off between the hours of 1:00 P.M. - 12:30 P.M. on weekdays and 11:00 A.M. - 2:30 A.M. on weekends.

I definitely wouldn't mind being a forum moderater, but I was wondering if you had an age limit. I am usually on from around 17:00 GMT to 22:30 GMT. I'm usually active on weekends and I also take fifteen minutes in the morning. I've been active now for over a year, know the rules, haven't broken them for a long time. I wouldn't change my posting style if I got modded and I wouldn't go crazy with power.


Give my thoughts form and make them look insightful.

Since you ask it so openly, I would indeed be interested in helping the website. I've been a member since 2000, and even if I was mostly inactive between 2001 and 2003, it helped me alot get better at Flash, and even awarded me a T-Shirt and 50$ for my Pico Day entry. It may not seem like much, but getting aknowledged for your work is so much more important. So this would be a good way to thank you back for all you did for me.

Plus, I think after spending about 3 years browsing the BBS, I'm beginning to understand how things work around here (and about time I should add...). I'm mostly on NG between midnight and 2 or 3 am (eastearn time), a.k.a. when I get back from work.

As far as the choice goes, I would like to be a BBS mod first, since I consider myself a regular (generally unknown, but still a regular) and Flash review mod second, since I’m a flahs contributor and know what it’s like to receive stupid unfounded reviews that are just personnal attacks.

I just realised my first answer was incomplete, so here's what I would do if I was a mod. First off, I would be keener to new members, nicely pointing out the guidelines of the BBS instead of giving them the instant "NOOB" tag. Even if I'd be nicer to these perticular users, I would still be a bitch to those who go too far across the line. There is nothing more irritating than a user berating other users' opinions by calling them idiots. The way I see it, even idiots are entitled to an opinion, as long as it stays within the rules.

Plus, no special treatment : a user who's on the website since 2001 shall get the same treatment than a user who just joined, just like a 25 y.o. will be judged on the same base than a 13 y.o. We need to help the latest built some maturity instead of bashing them. If some users like Peacekid or Frank thought us something, it's that younger users can be just as mature as older ones.

As far as Spamming goes, I'll also be ruthless, especially to the stupid alt wave that's been pestering the BBS and reviews for the past months. Moronic gimmicks who try to be funny by impersonatting a certain character (a pokemon trainer for example) gets highly on my nerve. If you can't be funny by yourself, just don't try to be funny at all.

Even though it may seems like it, being a mod wouldn't result in a sudden power trip from myself. I'd just try to keep the BBS or the reviews clean from idiocraty as much as possible, while maintaining a certain fairness towards other NG users, because even if I was a mod, I'd be a BBS user first.

I spend a few hours a day on this site. I attend the forums for a good discussion and to be a general comedian. I'm on usually 1am-3am or noon to 4pm EST.

I would be interested in being a Icon Mod and/or a forum mod.

First, Icon mod. Icon modding doesnt take a lot of brainwork, but more repetitive approving/disapproving. I beleive I've logged enough hours to know how things work around here, and enough to know what is a NG worksafe pic and what is not NG appropriate. Thus if you need an insomniac icon mod, I would be a great candidate.

Second, forum mod. I'm not the most popular poster, I don't like the cliques or kissing mod ass. I am however an experienced poster at over 3k quality posts, an avid Newgrounds fan and a helpful person. I noticed few to no mods on when I'm on, and I beleive I could fill the gap that exists on late night/workday EST hours. I do not want mod status for a rep bonus in some circles of NG, I want it because I would like the forums to continue to be the best free forums on the internet.

In closing, if I don't get modded in my entire time on Newgrounds it won't bother me. If I do become a moderator, I will help make NG become more kickin rad then it already is.

Relaxation of the rules or no, I won't ask to be a forum mod; I still believe that anyone who asks to be a mod shouldn't be one. The desire for power leaves too much room for abuse.

That said, I would be willing to help screen icons or reviews. Those are behind the scenes, non-glamourous positions that I don't mind offering to help with, if you still need anyone to do so.

One thing that you did not mention is the review of flagged submissions. It seems like they take a very long time to be removed, and I'd be willing to help with that if you ever decide to form a flag moderation team. I've got the research skills to find stolen submissions, and I'm familiar enough with the rules that I can identify submissions that break those rules.

I'm on Newgrounds off and on for most of the day and evening (Pacific Time). I take online classes only, so I usually have at least one tab dedicated to NG all day. Thanks to my time zone, I tend to be on a lot later than most of the NG users; I'm usually going to bed as England is waking up.

Let me know if you'd like my help.

I'd like being a forum mod.

Living in South Korea, I get on mostly when it's night in the USA. Therefore, you'd have someone to watch over the forums from about 10pm to 6am Central, and I have known from past experiences that spam threads are abundant during the night, opposed to daytime when all the mods are on.

I spend roughly an hour posting, but a lot more time lurking (possibly 4-6). Never having gone into other forums beside General, I have a pretty good idea of what is a good thread, what is a 'meh' thread, and what is a spam thread, having been autobanned a few times for posting in spam threads. I'm also a pretty heavy "Use proper fucking English" Nazi, if that makes any difference.

Thank you in advance for considering me for this position.

I think i'd work best as a review mod, if not review, then forum or audio, I wouldn't be interested in icons.

I'm on the site from 4pm until about 10pm or 11pm GMT each week day, and on weekends perhaps a little longer.

I think i've got reasonably good judgement on if things are abusive or not, and since i spend most of my time on here anyway, I could at least be helping out while i'm here.

Though I doubt it will happen, it would be great to be a forum mod, as, despite my shitty beginnings on this site, and my angsty crap, I can't really stay away from this site, and I've certainly a better head on my shoulders then I did earlier on. If I were modded, I'd make sure to not abuse my "powers" at all, and ban, lock and delete whatever need be. Granted I'd post some pretty ridiculous lock messages.

It's no lie that around two years ago I cared way too much about everything, and really wanted to be a mod. As lame as it may sound (and yes, it sounds pretty lame) that was like, my goal in life, and I probably would have went overboard had I been modded.
Now, however, I'm quite sure you would be satisfied with me as a mod, and if not, just demod me, at any time. I really can't guarantee any specific times I'd be on. As I have insomnia and find myself sleeping and waking at odd hours, but most likely it would be either late at night, or early in the morning. I'd be willing to devote a good four hours per day at least.

I've been an active member for three years (granted I took a break from posting for a while) and don't plan on leaving. The idea of being a mod hasn't been a recent one, as I'm pretty sure I blew whatever chance I had around a year and a half ago, and am more preoccupied with life outside the internet. It's no big deal one way or the other, if not modded I'll just remain a regular who fags around the BBS. If modded, well that would just make my day.

I would probably enjoy being a forum Mod or a Review Mod as they are where I spend most my time on Newgrounds. Im pretty mature compaired to others (which isnt much of a claim in some cases) and I try to make vaugely intelligent posts. I see things go unpunished quite often and often see lockable threads before the mods do. Having said that it would probably be abad idea to have me as a mod as I am usually quick to anger at the posts I find spammy or not that inteligent even if they are perfectly legitimate and have been known to hold a grudge against people I dont like. Also Im still relativly new here so Im still learning the ropes.

Thats both sides of my case for mod ship. I probably will never achieve it as there will always be better people for the job, but you asked so here was my view on a modship.

I think I could help by being a Fourm and Icon mod
Forum Mod
I've made several topics that were and would still be helpfull to Newgrounds and i've been the driving force behind the ASM on several diff stretches of time. How was I a driving force even though I had no mystical moding powers...well ill tell you. There were several months were I was the only member handing out sigs and helping new sig makers get started not to mention all the dam flame wars I ended in that topic with out bringing in or even mentioning a mod. When I was active in the ASM I kept a detailed ToDo List and updated it every few pages which is why things went so smoothly when I was active there. I've contributed well over 300 some odd Sig pics and Avitars in my time here and plan to contribute as many more as im willing to make. I've been comming here since Jan '07' and rember I wanted an account but didnt want to pay for a grounds gold account<sillyme> which finally dawned on me in '09' when I made my first account...which is long since gone due to the fact that I forgot the name and the login info like the next day. But i dont knock myself for that simply cause Newgrounds was the Thrid site on the internet I found...the First two being Neopets.com followed by Bolt.com. Then one day I happened upon Newgrounds and this has been my E-home ever since. Ive been a very loyal member of this community even though ive had my fair share of spaming, flamming and extented vacations. But in my defense I really had no idea how to act on the internet untill maybe around post 100 or so. My grammer isnt the best...hell I wouldnt even call it average for my age but most of my post over the years were intelegent and help to some point. Not to mention a few of the Topics ive made that were blaintly helpfull to all who read em. I'm a nice person and im dam good at seeing things from someone elses perspcetive. But that dosent mean I cant be a hard ass when its needed. I dont hold grudges or cause drama. Im an all around fair guy who has seen the best and worst this site has had to offer for dam near 10 years now.
I've not been active these past two months cause I needed a break to try and get money to go to school and get my car going but as of late ive been comming back around so I can see the new layout when it comes out. Sunday to Thursday I come on for an hour or two before i crash out but the weekends my time can span entire days if I didnt have any plans prior to logging in.
Icon Mod
Aside from the fact ive submitted around 50 icons over last winter I feel I would be a good Icon mod cause I have an artistic eye and ive shown my attention to deatials in the ASM and various other topics that took me hours of reading and organizing text and links and images simply so things would look right and be reader friendly not to metion I enjoyed making icons so much id actualy be willing to put in the time and effort to help out in a more constructive mannner then putting pretty links in a topic. Now im not clamming to be a artest or something fancy like that but im willing to say id be able to tell if an icon fits a submission simply by wathing the submission it was submitted for.
----------Thus concluds my reasons for wanting to be a Forum and Icon Mod
