Be a hero! Join the Malicious Intruder Removal Team today!

Last edited Sat Dec 10, 2011, 04:58 PM - Edit history (1)

This discussion thread was locked by EarlG (a host of the Announcements group).

Volunteers who wish to help keep DU running smoothly should consider joining the Malicious Intruder Removal Team (MIR Team). The role of MIR Team members is simple: they are empowered to revoke the posting privileges of people who show up at DU with the intent to disrupt.

Members of the MIR Team are NOT responsible for removing posts, locking threads, or dealing with violations of DU's Terms of Service wherever they may occur. To repeat: the MIR Team is solely empowered to revoke the posting privileges of people who show up at DU with the intent to disrupt.

If you are a DU member with at least six months of membership, at least 1,000 posts, and proof of identity (ie. you are a current DU2 donor and made the donation in your own name) then you can apply to be a member of the MIR Team.

How do I apply?

Simple: just post in this thread to let us know that you'd like to give it a try, and you could be selected by the Admins. There is no application form to fill out, and no confidentiality agreement to sign. MIR Team members do not have access to any privileged information about other DU members.

Members can serve on the MIR Team for no more than 90 days, and can resign at any time without penalty. For much more information about the MIR Team, click here!

2. Is your time zone set correctly?

You can check by clicking the "My Account" link at the top-right of the page and taking a look in the Preferences section.

4. Ha ha, no.

It was set at "GMT -4", which we stopped a months ago.

I figured it was set at "Eastern", because that's where you are and where I am.

I fixed it.

But I'm here at odd times and generally not during the busiest DU times. Sometimes I'm here for hours on end and other times only briefly. I don't know how well that would work but I'm definitely interested.

42. I find a certain joy in seeing some MIs removed *slowly*.

We're still using the terms 'casting asparagus' and 'screwn' in my household - garnered from some pure-gold threads by MIs of yore.

I would like to apply, but I thought it fair to give the above warning.

I assume this has nothing to do with whether one agrees or disagrees with a particular poster or thinks that a certain poster is out of bounds - but to spot those who are intentionally trying to disrupt.

I think we have plenty of volunteers here for our first MIR Team. We're going to assign people tomorrow morning so that we can do some testing -- for now, I'm going to lock this thread.

Thanks again.
