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

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

23. I cried at the end of my first term on MIRT last year.

It was a great bunch.
I grew a lot (personally) thanks to that team. They supported me through a meltdown triggered by a few threads last Spring. DU is my family, my friends, my foes, my entertainment.

7. I would like to see what the MIRT experience is all about.

I will have some time on my hand, plus, being in another timezone would allow me to be on the MIRT night shift .

28. I'm grateful for the "must bathe regularly and wear unscented deodorant" rule.

 

That was a brilliant move.

And thank you for maintaining the "Clothes Optional" policy.
