We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from February - May 2017

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) 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.

We plan to introduce the new MIR Team on Wednesday, February 8.

[font color="red"]NOTE: If you are a current MIR Team member who is eligible to serve next term, please do not state your intentions in this thread. Instead, use the thread in the MIRT forum. Thanks.[/font]

I was going to re-up last session, but my computer died and was without one during the time you were accepting volunteers. I've got a new computer and am ready to work.

Thank you!

22. Hello, my dear friend!

When I saw the list of names here, I knew I had to sign up again! And especially yours, since you're the one who persuaded me to give MIRT a try to begin with..

18. Some of my favorite DUers are asking to be part of MIRT this term. I'd like to join them.

If there is still an open spot ... I would like to volunteer, please.
