Announcement Now Accepting Junior Moderator Applications (Due September 5th, 11:59PM PST) - APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED

Recommended Posts

Good luck to any that apply! Moderating is not easy but it's rewarding. If you love helping others, have a good sense of understanding, find it easy to work as a team, and value working towards creating and maintaining a strong community, it's a great position to go for!

 

But because your current roster of moderators are far too nice to say it, I'm going to be the one who does it; honestly reconsider applying if:

  • You're incapable of volunteering your time to the site. People love being stamp holders on this site and care more about the title than giving effort. No one needs you on the team.
  • You do not have the passion for this site and community. You do not get paid for this "job"; it is strictly volunteer and to do it well you will need to love it. Anything you face will rely on your love for OneHallyu and its thriving community to help you get through it. Trust me.
  • You aren't good at working with a team. You may be able to organize threads and sure, you know how to read and comprehend rules, but if you don't know how to talk with the rest of your moderating team and instead love taking the backseat when it comes to discussions, meetings, giving input, and bouncing feedback off other people, then you won't be a good addition to the team. It is what it is.
  • You get offended easily. Moderating is not easy. You will be accused of many things - things that are false and go against your true character. Your feelings must become steel. Your favs will be dragged to hell and back all over the forum and you will be responsible for remaining composed, professional, and absolutely capable of functioning and doing your job fairly despite it all. If you can't work under that kind of pressure then please don't try to put yourself in it.
  • You don't know how to make a decision. You will be uncertain of yourself at first while you learn and that is okay, but if you are never confident in your decisions and handling a situation on your own, then you will find this position just isn't for you.

A lot of people apply and go into this with the mindset of "Oh, I post on here! I could do this job!" without realizing the full responsibility that comes with it. Realize that moderating is not easy. Many days it will be hard. You will be hated by someone on this site no matter what it is you do or how fair and just you handle a situation. 

 

But it feels good to be a part of something that is great; it feels good to contribute to something you believe in. Working in a team and developing close relationships among others you'll grow to value is fulfilling. Seeing first hand a positive impact you create on others within this site is rewarding. Yes, moderating is not easy, but it is so very worth it.

 

If this post sounds serious, it's because it is. I genuinely hope those who apply are willing and ready to put in the time and effort. That is the only thing that OneHallyu and its users deserve.

 

Have fun and good luck.~xo

 

I'm speechless.  :ohbi:

 

 

Good luck to everyone applying!

I want to send in an application but the standards are too one sided and pretty judgemental to be honest.

What if you actually want to become a mod and get rejected solely because you've got a 'record'? Doesn't make sense since you're not even encouraging change.

 

You can still try to apply!

 

To be an effective mod, a user is expected to follow the rules as well and that includes having no infractions as setting an example is needed.

Can I apply if I only use OH on mobile

I can help the other mobile users and stuff

 

There are certain times that you'll need getting online in a computer although it can still work through desktop version but I'm not too sure about that as it's not quite convenient modding through mobile (from my own experience).

You can still try and apply though!

Sorry for the late reply.

 

I don't have any infractions on this account but would my former account be held against me?

 

Yep, unfortunately. Having the second chance account is also part of the infractions even though you don't have any warning points in it.

Hi I have two questions!

 

Firstly, I beleive you guys will be checking in for activity, but this summer I havent been posting too much as I have been working so much. After next week, I won't be working as frequently so it should be okay right?

 

And secondly, I assume there will be a second round or something, will we be notified if we do not make it to the second round?

 

Thank you and good luck to everyone else

 

That should be fine. People can get busy with lives outside OH, so it's understandable. ^^

As for the second part, I remember applicants can somehow get a notification or something but I'm not too sure though.
