We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from July - October 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 July - October 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 Wednesday July 24.

6. I am not currently a star member but I have been...

I just do not have the funds to give again until I have some real employment. If you are ok with that, I would like to serve.

11. If enuf people don't volunteer, I'm a last resort . .

I don't spend enough time in DU to monitor all the posts...CA Peggy up above said "it's a lot of work," and that scares me---all that reading, and on topics I don't give a darn about, and too opinuated on the ones I do care about.

Am too lenient. Call me only if you're desparate....

I like the way it's run now, by the way.

13. Not this time but maybe next time as I will be gone for a month and don't want to tie up a spot

There are some really good people volunteering and I'd love to work with you, maybe next term.

For those considering it, serving on MIRT was the best DU experience I've had. Learning to work with others who are very different for a common goal is a great thing. Thanks to all who have served and who are volunteering now.
