Community Moderators Needed!


Recommended Posts

I love how one former Mod and one aspiring Mod liked my since flagged post.

This does bring up an interesting aspect of mods - there are set rules of course but personal opinion and common sense are far more important. If I were modding I would have laughed at your post as I did when I saw it and read it in the context and tongue-in-cheekness that it was intended.

However, someone may have then flagged it and I would then have to reconsider it in the light of the rules. In that case you have to weigh up the rules broken and stuff, maybe discuss it with another mod etc. That’s when it gets time consuming as you can imagine.

Yes. Regarding that, I was researching lately how to solve the “flagged post” issue, and I discovered your old reply stating that each flag is checked personally by a mod and reevaluated with the context around the post.

So flags are a tricky section to handle.

It is a good thing that you involve more people into a decision before proceeding with the flag.

@marinapomorac You’re welcome…

@mjensen415 I noticed something and I think this tells the real issue we have on Fiverr main page and here on the forum. Maybe the better approach for vetting for MOD would be that you somehow track the persons who clicked on the above link, not the below link.

Mind the difference in numbers of how many checked the rules they must follow to be moderators and how many applied.

I think it’d be good if we refrained from any kind of political/religious references on the forum. It’d be awesome, in fact. These are potentially inflammatory topics and they get interesting discussions closed for no reason just because people can’t help themselves.

That said, I vote for Frank. Go Frank.

PS Oh, and coerdelion as well.

Thank you @lenasemenkova for the vote!

Moderators help ensure the success of your community by monitoring user activity and flagged items. This forum would not be what it is without active volunteers helping monitor and moderate conversations that happen here.

Over the last few years, there have been some amazing moderators who have, and continue to volunteer their time to help ensure that this community stays on task and conversations here are helpful and civil.

@wp_kid - @annai80 - @fonthaunt - @sue_mcl - @eoinfinnegan to name a few rockstars.

And it’s time we add more people to help us take this community to the next level. I’d love to be able to put together a moderation coalition of many sellers (and buyers) who represent many categories, countries, time zones and view points as this represents Fiverr as a whole.

While the platform (Discourse) has a lot of “self moderating” features built into it already, some human contact is always a good thing. Community members have been able to flag and report improper posts and comments. As well as the built in level system that have limits on posting.

Would you be a good fit to be a moderator?

  • You are active on the forum and have civil, helpful comments & posts.
  • You are an active Fiverr Seller or Buyer and have an account in good standing with Fiverr.
  • The tone of your posts are personable, helpful and welcoming.
  • You’re able to jump in and commit to moderating 10-15 min blocks, at least 3-4 days per week.

Benefits:

  • Helping out & grow the community. The rising tide lifts all boats.
  • “Direct” access to employees at fiverr via a Community Slack Channel.
  • Exposure (I hate listing this as a benefit to freelancers, but it’s true)
  • Sometimes swag & gifts (when I can get budget for it)
  • You get to join a community of moderators!
  • PHENOMENAL COSMIC (forum) POWERS!

The application form is pretty simple. Keep in mind that we do have access to all your posts & selling history, so we will be vetting each application for both selling habits and Forum activity.

I’ll keep this open until June 1st. Good luck to everyone who applies and I hope to see many applications. Feel free to check out the Community Standards & Forum Rules - 2020 if you have questions about WHAT is moderated and if you have any questions, please post below.

This is a very interesting point, though not a fool-proof test.

I didn’t click the link, just because I read it back when it was posted (as well as it’s predecessor, Forum Rules + Do's and Dont's), and it’s also already in my bookmarks because I do tend to revisit it often.

That is a good idea. I am going to be an optimist and assume that those who are already active on the forum have read the Community Standards & Rules.

Many times. But I still mess up sometimes. :roll_eyes:
