I was considering applying for moderator, but I'm not sure what all the expectations and duties are. I have read the application, and I also know that they are in charge of viewing topics to see if a topic needs to be moved or deleted or if someone is breaking forum rules. They basically regulate whatever section they are assigned to. Is there anything else I need to know? Are there any restrictions?
The Forum Admins look for new staff from the applications when they feel their section is in need of new or additional Sectional Moderators. There are general characteristics that are considered, particularly maturity, but interest in a particular section, moderating availability, etc. are evaluated on a case by case basis depending on their needs.
If you feel you are able to be a suitable moderator, feel free to apply. Just keep in mind that we have hundreds of applications on file, and very few positions to fill at any one time, if any.
EDIT: For a bit more information on actual expectations of our Moderators, they are basically expected to enforce the Forum Rules as are set by the Administration.
This includes being available on a regular basis to help clean up reports of rule breaking, appropriately issuing warnings and suspensions, managing the threads in the sections they're assigned to, and keeping an eye on member behavior.
Sectional Moderators are, as a rule, regular Members with duties to help us keep the forums in order. They are not expected to make decisions about the site itself, but their opinions are sometimes gathered for information.
