We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from May - August 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 Tuesday, May 9.

[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]

16. Would like to try it....

I believe getting more involved might help reignite my involvement in DU. I have enjoyed helping with jury duty.
When I changed my "name" I had to start a completely new account.
I meet your MIR Member requirements under my previous account as bobburgster....I was a Star member, had over 1000 posts. As bobGandolf I became turned off by the treatment of new members, and their posts.
Not sure what you new membership numbers are, but if they are stagnant, or lower, you might want to get the "mega number of post veterans" to ease up on their criticism/ridicule of new members' posts. I know it is difficult to see the same mistakes over, and over again, by new members, but a little more patience will go along way.
I will leave it up to you to decide whether my background, and opinions, would help, or hinder, as a member of the MIR Team.
