    You can perform moderation duties from a tablet or smartphone, however it is easier to use a PC.

    Interesting question. You would think that people would come on here to troll and post porn. However in the time I have been a moderator I have not been exposed to a single pornographic image. That's not to say that it doesn't happen, but it occurs once every few months rather than more frequently. In the cases where I've missed the trolls, I've been asleep, so the trolls were posting in a different time zone! ;)

    I sent my application. I'm not a native english speaker but I hope that's not too big of a problem.

    There is a good response to this request. I just wish there was the same enthusiasm for people contributing financially to the forum. That is another important way you can support the website. It may not seem as cool as becoming a mod, but @alexander is still dipping far too deep into his own pockets to keep this site on all four wheels. So, you generous, 'would be' mods, how about chipping in with $10 or more every month to make sure this place is awesome and doesn't ever die?

  6. So... I've been praying about/considering this... I'm still not sure where I stand at the moment, but I do have one question:

    How technical are the duties? I hate to be that stereotypical girl who knows nothing about technology, but... Well... I'm a stereotypical girl who knows nothing about technology. I am, as the position requires, always happy and eager to learn new things, but I'm curious how much of a struggle that would be for me.

    I was apprehensive about this as well when I signed up, but honestly, Xenforo is very user friendly. It's very easy to learn, and there is an excellent guide for any questions you might have. Here's a tutorial video if you are interested:



    Those are the basic tools. In addition to Xenforo's guide, we have our own moderation guide, and of course we'll be in close contact with new moderators to guide them through the learning process.
     
  9. Thank you for the extensive answer! I definitely feel more confident in my tech-skills now. lol that shouldn't be a problem.

    Hi everyone!

    Thank you so much to everyone who turned in an application. We are going through them right now and will be onboarding the new moderation team over the next couple weeks. Please be patient while we work through this process. A ton of thanks, again, to everyone willing to volunteer their time and energy to keep NoFap great.

    Applications are now closed. Thanks to everyone who filled out the form. For those who filled out the application, please be patient as we onboard the new moderation team. Also, if you weren't chosen to be a moderator this time around, please keep in mind that we still have your application and will consider it in the future, when we add more moderators to keep up with the growth of the site. If you were interested in putting in an application but didn't get to, please keep an eye out for the future when we will re-open applications.

    So applications are open now that TakingTheSteps has resigned as a moderator?

    For now they are still closed. We haven't yet decided about bringing on a moderator to replace TakingTheSteps yet.

    When you re-open them, you should ask applicants to give an undertaking that they won't throw in the towel after 3 weeks.

    I read the whole thing, then I read the brackets.
    Then I got sad.
    But I haven't even got my life in order yet, so maybe being a mod isn't the best choice for me right now.

    I disagree too.
    It's a volunteer position, if you want to leave then there's nothing stopping you. Doesn't matter what the reason.
    Volunteers arent employees.
