    If people are objecting to giving money to the daily fail, does it count as a positive thing to relieve them of money?

    I might apply for that so I can self moderate myself. My last account only lasted 6 days before being banned again.

    Moderating Forums is a thankless task, so being paid ain’t too bad.

    I was a mod for a number of years on a popular cycling forum, but some of the ‘crap’ you have to sort out and deal with, before the members get chance to see it, is incredible. Some folk are really unpleasant ‘keyboard warriors’ – we had other mods who had met these folk and they were right wimps in real life, but put a keyboard in front of them, my god.

    We had a situation where there was a group of ‘members’ who were like a clique, and ganged up on people – we were sure they were sending PMs between each other. When you edited their crap they would get abusive.

    I gave it up in the end as it wasn’t worth the hassle.

    I believe it’s the opposite.

    Hmmm looking at the contributors I’m guessing that DezB and sandwich are the anonymous mods on here. Or could it be bearnecessities, pimpmaster jazz and aracer

    Having seen what he eats and obvious willingness to give his life for the benefit of fellow forumites it is quite possible, nay likely, that he’d give up his time on our behalf too.

    (He also grows very good strawberries)

    The Job Advert asks for 1+ year experience Moderating an online Forum..

    Thats quite some experience criteria right there.

    Bikeradar?

    I used to visit there, seemed to be 5-6 ‘core’ members who ruled completely, you dare offer an opinion against the accepted norm and it was hell to pay! One of them WAS a proper bike mechanic though, big **** woop – I know 3 bike mechanics independently of each other – ask them a question, get 3 different answers.

    Anyway, I’d LOVE to mod the Fail Site, I’d last about 30 seconds, I’d add “common sense” to the swear filter to be replaced with “My ill-informed, un-researched, fear based knee jerk reaction is” and let the hilarity commence.

    Fun sponge? I’ve seen videos heard of such things, that’s a hell of an interview method.

    Thanks for thinking of me but I’m too busy with this place and a couple of Facebook groups to take on any others.

    No another – one that isn’t affiliated to a magazine and is privately run. Alot of folk jumped from Bike Radar (or what ever it used to be called) to this forum.

    As a mod you really do see what goes on in the background, and some folk really need a good kicking. We had a warning system, in that if someone really broke the rules they would get warning points. So many points got you a day’s ban, then 3, then a week, then a month and then kicked off for good. Quite a few people were two points off a full ban.

    Oh and don’t get me started on mechanics or retired mechanics – pedantic little idiots that try and belittle newbies, or argue with experienced cyclists offering advice.

    I’d quite like that job. In a, how quickly will I get the sack kind of way.

    I’m also slightly confused.. I really didn’t think DaliyFlail readers had enough co-ordination to type never mind engage in online narcism.

    And if the moderators so much as hinted that the gang were bullying folk, they would in turn accuse the mods of bullying, taking sides and then turn their venom on you.
    The vegan thread was the final straw if I remember correctly! Hypocrite queen didn’t enjoy her ban did she!

    Nice try but no, I’m not. Too far from anything resembling proper hills here to be even considered.
