We're recruiting! - Moderator Vacancy

Featured Posts

Moderator Vacancy
 

Canal World is looking to recruit additional moderator(s) to join our team over next few weeks to work alongside the current team to replace members who have since retired from the role.

We are looking for existing members who visit the forum regularly and are able to give something back to the community. 
The role requires good judgement, an understanding of the forum rules and guidelines and the ability to work as a team. 


Moderators will join the current site staff in front-line voluntary work after a short introductory period.

Typical tasks include:

  • Maintaining the forums content and promoting healthy discussion.
  • Engaging with and assisting members with general and enquiries.
  • Moving and merging duplicated topics and posts, removing spam, etc.
  • Removing inappropriate content and exercise disciplinary action where appropriate. 
  • Escalating serious or repeat incidents to forum administrators.


We recognise that we have a user-base with a vast amount of knowledge and experience in all walks of life. As such, we're also interested to hear from users who may be interested in helping out in other areas of the site. - We're always open to ideas! :)

If you are interested and are able to contribute some of your time to help maintain our site, please contact us by clicking here. Please provide a short cover note outlining your interest for the role along with any experience, knowledge or skills you can offer.

Canal World is managed by DHutch and operated by a Team of Volunteers who kindly provide their time to help towards maintaining the site.

We are extremely grateful to those who help make Canal World what it is today for the benefit of its members and guests alike.

Thank you

As ex mods seem to have done significant damage to this forum over the last couple of years, you have to wonder if trying to recruit replacements is such a good idea. At least take a look at modifying the job description. It is somewhat open to abuse.

No system or individual is perfect, however moderators are an essential part to almost all online communities.

 

Thanks

Recent problems seemed to stem from single mods trying to cope on their own in the late evening. It’s not a role I’d fancy any more but I suggest the senior team thinks hard about mod support systems 24/7 and the need for mods to stay stone cold sober when modding. (I’m not suggesting alcohol had anything to do with any specific incident but I’m aware that almost all my online boo-boos have happened after a drink or two.)

Some of the forum's I've assisted with have a "Mod Switch" (possibly asking for re-entry of password) to distinguish between "1st Ade" and "1st Ade the Moderator" - Discourages (but doesn't totally prevent) over use of Mod powers.

Aha, well I hope no one minds if I answer this one, it seems I've been having some issues recently, not sure what is happening, but  lets hope normal service will resume as soon as possible. It's not only late night, I seem to be hyper, 24/7.

ight be the heart, might be the head [hitting against a brick wall, perhaps.

You won’t be the only one! Christmas with its disruption of routines, exposure to excess relatives, too much sugar, too much caffeine, not enough quality sleep can really do your head in. No wonder the divorce lawyers and boat brokers do fire sale business in the New Year :angry2:.

 

Hope you get it together soon.

 

Take care of yourself 🙂.

Sincerely hope you do get back on track and normal service resumed.
