We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from August - November 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, August 23.

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.

7. This is the best "job" on DU - if you've not tried it yet, go for it.

You will get a deep appreciation for how much riff raff tries to join, and how satisfying it is to keep such riff raff out!

To all the familiar DUers going for it again - have fun - I hope to rejoin the next time that I can...but my terms are up!

28. I would if I could, but I'm timed out.

But we do have an exceptionally strong team this time around - and more numerous if most everyone who's eligible stays on. And with you on board, I'm not too worried. Though I'll miss it, I won't be far away.

30. Awww! Thanks so much!

I have really enjoyed being a part of the present team - but the new slate of volunteers looks like MIRT will be in great hands, present company included!
