Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the Malicious Intruder Removal Team

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.

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.

To provide some continuity, we plan to retain about half of the current MIR Team who will serve for one more 90-day term. Therefore we will be taking no more than 20 new volunteers this time around. (Note that current MIR Team members who stay on for the next 90 days will not be permitted to serve for a third consecutive term.)

20. whatever you can provide - it is a big team, very dedicated,

and some days I spend a total of an hour - other days, much more.

It's worthwhile, satisfying, and a great experience.
