We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from October 2012 - January 2013

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 provided with tools to delete spam posted by people who have had their posting privileges revoked, but they are NOT responsible for removing community standards violations, locking threads, or dealing with violations of DU's Terms of Service wherever they may occur.

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 Star member or current DU2 donor and made the donation in your own name) then you can apply to be a member of the MIR Team. (Please note that if your Transparency page is displayed, you are disqualified from serving on 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.

We plan to introduce the new MIR Team on Wednesday October 17.

11. I think it's about time I did some work around here.

I'm pretty good with a broom and a dustpan.

Maybe more importantly, I promise I'll wear clothes.

36. Question for Admins

I've read this thread and note many who have never served volunteering as well as some who have served previously, offering to serve again.

I'm just curious, do you first consider those who've never done it yet over those who have? I have often read from those who have done a term that it is an enlightening experience that they recommend all DUers give a try. That's what prompted this question.

Thanks if you see this and get a chance to answer.

Julie
