Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Jan 17, 2013, 11:46 AM

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

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

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

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) 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 Thursday January 24.

44. Sure, I'm up for it. Why not?

However, if it requires the same amount of online time as was asked of mods, I can't do it. It's just that there are times I have to be away from the computer for a few days for work, but when I'm not, I'm probably online more than most.

I am maybe looking at some back surgery soon so don't know how soon I would be able to start, but count me in. I smell an intruder before he starts to type.
Ironic that it is MIR because I have so much metal in my back already that I can't have an MIR anymore and would love to get one this way.
