We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from January - April 2014

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 2014.

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 January 29.

8. I volunteer.

I've not had a chance to be on MIRT, and have considered it many times. So, I'll put my name forward for this term.

9. I'm done for now...

It has been an eye opening experience though and I appreciate you guys letting me serve. I'll probably try to volunteer again towards the end of the year.

Good luck to everyone who gets on!
