I'd like to be an Audio Mod, because I like music, I visit the AP a lot and review there, I spend a fair amount of time at the Audio Forum. And I am learning how to make songs at the moment.

Also, sometimes it's interesting what stuff gets submited to the AP, because most of the shit gets deleted.

I will be very active during summer, the other seasons of the year, less active, but at least 3 hours.

To be honest I don't have to many reasons to be an Audio Mod, but I'd love to anyway, and if I'd get the place, I would sort out what I am going to do.

I doubt that I'll be a mod, but if there is a chance, I would get excited about it immedeatly and would wish to take the place.

I'd like to be a review mod. I think I'm someone who'd do a much better job of managing abusive reviews than abusive threads and users. I also wouldn't want the responsibility of having to judge borderline threads, and would probably, like most mods, end up incurring a lot of hate for my power. I think if I was a review mod then I would have the respect and signifiance of a gold aura without the loathing.

Lol, as if I needed a reason to waste more of my life on NG... but if I had the chance, audio mod (if they actually got deletion powers) >:C Cause I'm pretty active in the audio community. But still, real life and stuff, and all the annoying NGers and spam... I wouldn't really ever want to be a mod... geez it must suck.

Well, I'd most like to be a forum moderator...

I made a news post about it some time ago just for the sake of a note to self. It was the pros and cons of me being a mod. I'll put them here...

PROS:
1) I swear by the BBS Rules as if they were my Bible.
2) I would make sure everything is orderly, and be non-corrupt in my acts.
3) I make sure my posts are never just for the sake of +1'ing.
4) I exercise some wit in my responses.
5) I'm on at regular intervals, so I would be reliable.

CONS:
1) I'm not yet of minimum age to be a mod, which alone is reason enough for me not to.
2) I only have a little over 200 posts, a pathetic amount for any user, let alone an enforcer.
3) I generally don't have good ideas for threads.
4) I'm not very well known, and finally
5) I don't own or sell any gay porn.

And that's pretty much it...

A forum mod, because I spend most of my time on it. I have lots of spare time because I'm still a student at school so that'd be a plus....and to be honest, I think having power would be more fun than just being a regular user, though it would require great responsibility, which we all learned from spider-man.

While everyone would like to be a Forum mod, I would actually like to be a review mod. I know the achilles' heel to this is that I have a garbage whistle. But when NG was remodled, I was confused when I marked reviews, so I accidentally dug myself into a hole, I was confused. But otherwise, I would like to think I'd do alright, my reviews tend to be marked as helpful, I don't spam 10's and 5's all the time, and I'm never too negative on a flash, i.e. I try to offer advice on what could improve the flash.

Reveiw mod please. I am sick and tired of abusive reveiws, I have a deiety wistle to prove this and I have 350+ reveiws to prove that I know what a decent reveiw looks like, I am always flagging abusive reveiws anyhow so why not have me just delete them instead of just flag them? I also am good at figuring out which reveiws are by an alt or author to cheat at getting awards and have no problem cleaning those out.

Thanks for listening.

Although everyone would love to be a forum mod, it's too much power for most people. Poozy's on the verge of insanity because of it. I'd want to be a review mod. I don't think I could handle being a forum mod, and much less take on the responsibility of banning/deleting useless topics. I don't have a good sense in those things.

A review mod would be swell because I mostly stay on the games/movies section, and know quite a few spam crews to watch out for.

But, seeing as all of these posts shall be ignored, my typing is in vain. ;_;

Well, I suppose this is kind of split two ways, between which kind of mod i'd like to be.
To start, I'd be glad to help out on NG, due to lack of Flash or Audio equipment.

I suppose I'd like to be a review mod, due to the amount of stuff that can be overlooked because nobody's around to point out the bad. Not to say that it should be that easy, but even so, it shouldnt be overlooked. I know what's abusive, and can help those who havent quite got a handle on it.

Next, in a close tie, comes being a BBS mod. I mean, banning dorks would be fun and all, but it's not like these dorks are really hampering a BBS experience. I'd like to help more than I would like to be an idiot handler.

As for the other two categories, I dont know enough about music to be able to judge it, and I havent heard much of a user committing an icon transgression.

Hmm, I've never seen this thread before.

How odd.

I'd be a pretty good mod. I come here decently often. I know when someone is breaking the rules. I'm not a horrible person, I'm fair and honest. That said, I don't think you need another mode right now. I barely see any problems in the BBS. Either this means that the users are just being really good, or everything is deleted or locked so quickly due to your abundance of mods. I'd really appreciate being a mod, and I'd go into way more detail if I thought the BBS needed another one, but it just does not.

I'm only ever banned for backseat modding. If I was modded, I'd be frontseat backseat modding.

Icon mod
you have no real power, but it actually sounds pretty fun, and not tedious at all.
no sarcasm, just checking out the icons.

loads of fun.

When it all comes down to it, I would actually like being an Icon Moderator.

1) Icon Mod: I have a strong taste for graphics. I have been a regular contributor to the Icon Helpers when I have a chance. I see lots of iconless submissions, or even wonderful submissions which have a really pixely icon. I would love to help out others by giving them a nice shiny icon, or get rid of those 'unsuitable' icons (I have already helped make an icon for the popular video Fågelskrämman).

I make sure that I come on Newgrounds at least once every day. I usually get up around 6:30AM (Eastern Standard Time) before I head off to school. When I get home around 3:00PM I come on Newgrounds and hang out in the forums, and watch/vote/review new videos. I probably spend a good hour or so on Newgrounds each day. This is a wonderful site and I always feel proud that I am a member of it. Being a mod would take it one step further :)

Other Choices"
2) Review Mod: I try to give the most positive and constructive reviews that I can. I really dislike it when users come up to a wonderful submission, and just trash it, requesting BLAMs and such. I can't stand those abusive reviews, so it would be great being able to help filter those out.

3) Forum Mod: About a year ago I have started to take a liking to the Newgrounds Forums. I enjoy posting, helping users out in the Flash section, and try to direct people when they are confused.

4) Audio Mod: My last choice. I am a lover of music, but I have not gotten around to making some music myself. I don't think I would be suitable for the job, seeing that I am not an audio artist ^_^

I plan on going back to making some more icons after I finish my various projects. I am looking forward to the Contributions page to see just how much I really have contributed!

In the future I would like to become, drum roll please, a BBS Moderator!

While I enjoy reviewing very much, like making icons, and make and listen to music, I feel the aspect of Newgrounds where I spend the most time is the BBS.

At this current time I am qualified for the position in some ways, and in some ways I am not. Firstly, I think I am because I put thought and effort into my posts, try to help out the community, and spend roughly two - three hours a day lurking and posting. I would have time to help out the forums and I know the rules to perform those tasks.

On the downside, I have only been here for two years. There are a lot of people looking for such a position who have been a member of the community for much longer. I concede that that puts them a head of me for the position. Also, I only have roughly 1,600 posts at the moment. While that is a decent amount, it is no where near the amount I see most of the BBS moderators having.

So overall, I think I would be good for the position, even though I most likely won't get it in the near future. Hopefully, within the next few years, if I continue my current habits and continue to help out the community I will be seriously considered for the job of BBS moderator.

Until than, please keep my name in mind when contemplating new mods.

Thanks!

1. Forum Mod - Id choose this because im active on these forums whenever im on the computer, which is around 14 hours a day( you might say NO LIFE, but i say AWESOME LIFE =D ), even more on weekends. even though i dont post much, i am on here a ton just browsing.

2. Review mod - I also spend a ton of time playing the barely submitted games and i love reading the review on them all, plus all the top games. I have a good sense of ethics, i know what needs to be deleted and what doesnt. unlike most people im familiar with the rules ( although i do have to be honest, i dont write the best reviews sometimes) i do know what they are though.

I also have experience being a forum mod over at GHF ( site is shutdown sadly enough) but i was a mod there for 6 or so months.

Though i really doubt id be chosen for a mod since im not the most active person here, it would be an amazing privilege and i would definately use it wisely.

Most definatley, review moderator.
Every day, when I'm at the flash portal, any 5 that I watch and rate, I also review. I don't just review it, but whether or not I even give it a low score, I tell the artist where they need improvment, and where they are doing just fine. I also go through the reviews (that is, if it is saved, and not blammed) and mark any of the reviews accordingly. If it lists the pros and cons like I do, I mark it as helpful. If it says somethind like "lol, this is originals" I mark it as useless. And, if it says something like "omFg, go rape a blam and go f**k yourself in the process" I mark it as abusive. So, I am not only helping the flash, I am also helping the review space. I do this every day.

My second choice, icon moderator
Every now and then, I visit the iconhelpers page, watch a few flashes (I try to do at least 10) and make a good icon that isn't a picture relevent to the name, but is a screenshot of a moment in the flash. (On my computer, I do this by pressing the print screen__sysrq button, then cropping out a section using MSpaint, then shrinking it to 46x46 and re-coloring if necessary). I see the number of how many flashes have icons and how many don't and personally, I think it's pretty disappointing. If I were an icon moderator, I would contribute a little bit of my time, every day, approving icons and shaping up the flashes.

My third choice (you probably could've guessed it), BBS moderator
It's not every day when I'm on the Forums, but whenever I'm done voting on 5 flashes, I quickly go to the BBS and see what's going on. Sometimes, I post on other people's posts, sometimes (not that often) I'll start my own thread. Whenever I do start a new thread, I always make sure the title is relevent, it is more than 5 words, and is not in all caps. When i go to other posts, if it is breaking any rules, I point them out like if it has already been done before, I post a link to the original post. If it is NSFW, I usually send the link to a moderator. I do my best to help out regulars and current moderators.

I am not posting here due to power hunger, I really think I can help out on newgrounds and I really want to see a difference in the reviews, icons, or BBS. Like Ghandi said, "You have to be the change you wish to see". Whenever I'm on newgrounds, on Mon-Thu (unless I have off from school on any of those days) I'm on for about 2-3 hours. But on any day I have off from school, I'll be on for hours on end.
