The mod and admin team often get requests from members about becoming a moderator for the forums. We love that members are so excited and interested in this place as to want to join the team, and we thank you for that. However, private messages to individual members of the mod or admin team aren’t how we typically recruit help.
We have a pretty simple way of doing things around here. At Vaping Underground, we watch and read and observe our members “in the wild” and handpick those we think would be an asset to the team. We look for tact, personability, an embodiment of the values that shape the underground, regular activity, and reliability. We also keep the team suited to the size of the membership, so while we feel adequately staffed at the moment, as the membership and forums grow, we will add to the team as required.
In short, the best way to be considered for the team is to be present, active, helpful and friendly…. and to represent the values that shape this forum: freedom, fairness, and reasonability.
