Icon mod. I go on here almost every day, with nothing to do. I can watch alot of flashes to figure out which one would suit it. Plus, there isn't a lot of icon mods that I know of.

I'd probably like to be a forum moderator, I usually am more active on the forums and I don't really have much of a time to go around approving other things. And honestly? Forum mods seem like the most fun, haha. :D

My 2nd choice? That would probably be an audio mod since I'm sort of into music I guess...

I guess I'm more active at night and the afternoon, especially this summer since I don't really have much to do. I'll be moving to California summer 09' so I might not be active later this summer (due to no internet), but at about Septemberish I would be most likely.

I've been on this site for 3 years I guess, I started getting active on this site this year that's why my post count is low but I pretty much post like more than 10-30 times a day now, depends. (No life I know *shrug*)

Anyways, there's my NG resume if you will. :) Enjoy.

I'm not gonna ask for forum mod because I'm much too irresponsible to not ban people I don't like. But I would like to be an audio mod because I myself make music and I pretty much live in the audio portal so I think I'd know what should be in there and what shouldn't.

I think i'd be a great mod. I know i've only been here for less than a year but i have an astounding 300 posts. So yeah, i'm not obbsessed with the forums but i always check em out, just don't post much. Only been banned twice, but i always go back and read the rules and don't bitch about it.... So yeah i think i'd be a pretty damn good mod (even if i'm just an "09er")

i mean.. i would like to be a forum mod, since im on the forums for a good 1-3 hours daily... i mainly go on video games and general, but sometimes ill check out art... if i were mod, i PROMISE THIS, i would only lock a thread or ban someone, if i have a valid reason. ex: someone starts a flame war, BAN. MAYBE LOCK THREAD. i would give warnings most of the time, unless the post just screams "BAN ME"

I've been on NG for a few years now and I know how shit works around here.

I don't go on paltalk or stickam (which I know for a fact is a big plus for potential future mods) but I feel like I know enough of the community to be an effective Forum Mod. Yeah, I'm sort of unknown to the populace, but I lurk enough to know everyone else.

I'm sure my posting activity would increase if I actually had incentive to post, that is, it being a job of sorts to do in my spare time, so don't let my (relatively) small post count hinder me.

I've just spent the last 20 minutes looking through this thread and about 11 users have been modded, and that was before 2008/07. I don't know if Wade still checks this, but if he doesn't, some of us wasted our time.

Good day.

I wouldn't want to be mod, it would be like being a janitor for an asshole factory. I'd probably be fucking terrible at it too because endless gay cock sucking doesn't make for great motivation. People on this site try too hard. I'm happy being unknown. The current mods do fine anyway

Choice: Forum Moderator.
Reason:I spend a lot of time on the forums. I haven't been banned in god knows how long, ( please don't take advantage mods ), and i have learned in which topics to post in and which to not. Im reaching about 3,000 post, and have bena member for the site for a while now. If i can't become a mod now due to my age or just for the fact Wade doesn't come on here anymore, there is always later. However i would love to know if i was ever considered.

Thanks a lot dude, I hope you are someone still checks this.

Choice: Forum mod.

I would be very happy to be a mod. Most of the time, I put effort in my posts to try to keep them thoughtful. I've been around for a while, too, and know the goings-on pretty well.

I currently spend most of my time on the politics forum and am pretty well acquainted with them over there, but the general forum is my old home.

Schedule-wise: If I were chosen to be a mod, I would definitely create more time to be on the forums than I am now. I would have more incentive, to, after all. Not to mention I am about to move into an apartment in San Francisco and will desperately need a job (California has a horrible unemployment rate), and I am still a student. So the night time on weekdays would be a likely time for me to be on, and perhaps some mornings and afternoons, or lazy weekends. Again, though, if I was a mod I would make time to be on more.

I would like to be an icon mod and/or a review mod. I usually spend time looking at what people write and see if shows any aspect of whats been submitted, and I like to look at peoples Icons because somm have such great skill.

I'm usually on about 4-5 days a week in the summer (excluding holidays) for about 8 or so hours. I wouldn't be able to be on as much because of college

I hope you guys do think about this, but I don't expect becoming a mod... (hope I didn't fuck up...)

For me it sounds like a job like any other, if I was to be mod. I would place myself in a neutral standpoint to try and rate things as fairly as I possibly can in the interest of newgrounds. Since I don't have a job at all, I sure as hell wouldn't mind doing something like that in newgrounds as far as I'm concerned.

It would be interesting to be a forum mod. I don't really know if I want to be one passionately, but I would probably accept if asked. Being a mod seems to come with a lot of pressure and expectations, so I'm not sure if I'm up for that, but I would want to be a forum mod to help keep this place clean.

I've never been one to deal with disappointment well, but I think I could learn something about that from being a forum mod. It could also be a lesson in patience and dealing with people and for that reason, I think I would want to be a mod to have that experience whether it's on this site or another.

As of this point, I've never been a mod on any site so I don't really have the experience to say, but I would like to think I would make a good mod.

I think I know the rules pretty well after three years of being a regular here, though I'm sure there are still some little things I've yet to learn. I always tend to read lock messages of locked threads. I don't know why, but it always seems interesting. I suppose that might be beneficial to someone if they're going to be a mod.

I think as a mod I would most likely be a mod that would be relatively laid back. I would try to give constructive lock messages in the threads that I lock and would try to send out PMs if I delete a thread for which there isn't a clear reason for deletion. I don't know how overwhelming that would be, but I would at least try doing that. I've had some of my threads deleted for reasons I didn't understand. I'm sure there was a reason, but I wanted to know why it was deleted so I could know what not to do in the future.

I would try not to be an ass as I try not to be now and I would try to be a role model. I would like to think that people would look up to me; I'm not going to lie about that. And by look up to, I don't mean kiss ass. I would like to make myself into a role model.

I don't want people to suck my dick. If I'm doing something wrong, I want people to tell me what it is so I can change. I also don't want to be unconditionally praised where ever I go. I don't want to be bashed, but I wouldn't want people to be intimidated by me to the point where they don't voice their opinions just because I'm a moderator.

I wouldn't be excessively lenient, though. I would ban for nonconstructive meme posting and other useless things that people do.

I would try not to discriminate based on stats. I don't think older, more experienced users should get lesser bans as I've heard has happened.

I wouldn't use the destroy function as I don't really agree with it. From what I've seen, a good portion of the bans given out are just destroy bans. I don't like the idea that every post in a spam thread is a bad post and I probably would not weed through all the posts to check every single time, so I would give the benefit of the doubt. I know a good majority of my bans are destroy bans. I think seeing that the thread has been deleted or locked is enough of a message to me that that's a thread that shouldn't be posted.

I would also still try to be a part of the community. I would most likely still post casually and involve myself in discussions. This is also part of the reason I don't want to have people kiss my ass. I want to be about to have a good debate without people deferring to me because of the authority that I would have.

I think that and I hope that power wouldn't change me or that being a moderator would make me cold. I really don't like the idea of that. I would like to think that whatever changes that would happen if any would be for the better. I would like to learn from that kind of experience, like I already said.

I like the idea of being part of the mod community. It seems to be a pretty tight nit community that would be fun to be a part of. I would try to support that and I would try to have fun. I don't want to be a mod that's all about rules and whatnot. I still want to be an avid regular that contributes to discussion.

I never like talking about my thoughts on being a moderator because I want to avoid looking like I'm overly ambitious in attempting to be one. I'm really not. As long as I'm still part of the community and I can still contribute and help make this place better, I'm happy. However, I would be fond of the ability to help even more.

But, like I said, I don't know if I would be able to handle the responsibility. I would, however, try. It's not like I would be a mod forever and ever until the end of time if I didn't want to.

I always find it interesting to read about how mods feel about being mods. I've seen some write about how being a mod have brought them closer the community and really, I hope that would happen to me. I would like to be more attached to the community because I feel it's been a pretty important part of my life.

As much of a headache as these forums can be, they been part of an era for me. They've given me a place to vent, a place to hang out, a place to write about things for the hell of it, a place to get feedback on my work, a place to debate, etc. I've met some awesome people on these forums over the years and learned a lot of things. I would like to be able to help out the community that I've been so involved with for the passed three years.

I don't want to leave these forums, as immature as you all may be. In fact, I tried once. I requested a 30 day ban to try and break me of the habit of coming back. It didn't work. I waited it out, hoping that the desires would eventually pass, but I found myself right back here again after the ban was up.

I would say that I am dedicated and I hope I don't get tired of this place.

I've learned a lot about dealing with crap, trolls, spamming, and all of that drama from here. I've developed patience for stupid people and the ability to mediate. I've learned a lot about things I didn't know before, like social concepts and other unrelated things.

Maybe this experience will help me as a moderator. I have a pretty good tolerance for annoying things, so maybe that will help too.

It's certainly helped me in my day to day life.

Maybe I've spent a bit too much time on here, particularly in eighth grade, but I don't regret any of it. I like the niche I've found myself in, the friends that I've made, and the experiences I've had.

This has turned into less of an essay about moderation and more of a nostalgia rambling, but I suppose that's not too much of a problem. I could relate it all if I tried. Let me get back on topic.

I can't anticipate what kind of follies I would have as a moderator. I think it would be hard to ban friends that I've made, but I guess that would something I'd have to do. Hopefully I wouldn't lose any friends over that. The last thing I would want would be for people that I've known for a while and grown to care about to distance themselves from me because of bannings. I would be interested to know if this has happened any of the mods here, though I know that's probably none of my business.

Hopefully people will understand once I explain it all to them, but I can never really know for sure. I know that I can't show favoritism and I would try not to, so I have a feeling I would have to do a bit of explaining at first.

I have a feeling that some of that is inevitable, so that would be another downside that I would anticipate of being a mod.

Well, I'm wrap this up because I'm running out of characters. This is definitely one of the longest posts I've ever made and didn't anticipate spending nearly as much time on this as I have. I've probably spend over an hour typing this up, in between talking to people on msn.

I've probably rambled a lot in this because I'm extremely tired. I've also probably made a very large number of typos. However, I suppose that doesn't really matter all that much.

I wonder if anyone will actually take the time read this. Do mods actually go through this thread and read every post for consideration, or do they just check for certain users when necessary? It must be a lot of posts to look through, though I suppose it's been spanned over a long period of time.

I'm pretty much out of characters, so...

*end*

Id like to be a mod someday

Forum Mod-Cause Ive been posting on the BBS for a pretty decent amount of time now and Ive been through all the stages of the average NG user...well not all of em cause im not a complete moron but ive had my share or spam and abusive posts over the years. But the vast majority of my post have been helpful and informative. Ive spent most of my BBS time in the ASM and now the NGSM making stuff for people and helping people get started making shit. Ive made a lot of effort to stop having the worst grammar ever cause I just got tired of it being shitty. And If I was a Forum Mod Id do most of my moding in the C&C section but Id still make time to help in other sections too.

User Page Mod-Cause I look at a lot of Userpages and have come across a lot of bad shit since we got em.

Icon Mod- Cause I make em so why not help the process along even faster.

I live in Germany for now so im on at very weird time during the Workdays being as im 6hr's ahead of TomTime-But on weekends I really dont. Not to mention after noon for me is late night for a lot of users and mods so thats a good time frame.
Id like to be a mod simply casue I enjoy helping. Most of my bans would be done while most mods are at work or asleep. And Im mature enough to not abuse simple power. I mean if the USA can trust me with a Gun and a truck that weighs several tons and connects High Ranking Officers to GOVT satellites then im sure I can handle telling 13yr olds "NO". Also im very laid back and understanding. Have lots of time on my hands when Im not at work and Love Newgrounds.

Meh im not really sure what else to say other then the users who know me know im a good Poster even when I did have shitty grammar. Now my grammar is better so yea im good to go.

Forum mod. Rather than posting throughout the forum, I instead read over most posts, anaylzing which is crap, and which ones have potential.

I'm serious.

I would like to be a forum mod. My sign-up date is actually false, seeing as how this is an alt account. The times I would be active would be from 8PM - 3 AM EST. I spend a lot more time scrolling through the BBS, and try to help out others often. I've been here for a couple of years, and know the BBS pretty well, and would be ecstatic to actually be able to stop most of the spam and poor threads tossed on there lately. The BBS is in desperate need of some more mods, and I'd be very happy to take up the job.

I would like to be a mod because I have 3 accounts, which you probably know through my ip address. Main reason is because looking for a sort of job online so I can work from where ever. I have a open mind, not easily disgusted, and wanting a job that can fit with my college schedule. I worked at several places already and can prove I'm over the age of 18 with several verifications.

In return I have a folder of unopened gay porn that I saved just for you also.

I'd love to be one mostly because it seems that there are not enough forum mods on here all the time to clean some stuff up.I also have a lot of free time on my hands mostly because I do all my homework on my laptop and because i'm home schooled. I would be avaliable from about 10 am to 11 pm Pacific time zone (GMT -8:00) Us & Canada
