Staff Application
Ontic Philosophy Forum Administration are looking for a new Staff member

As you all may know, I have been busy lately and a few spam bots slipped through the net. I have also noticed how all of the active members have been posting excellent content on a daily basis and I feel as though I have enough to choose from if members wish to become a member of staff.

Mods or Staff?

A moderator is different from a staff member. Mods basically 'police' the forum, they kick spammers and trolls, or they point members to useful sections if they are a bit confused about the set up of the forum, they are there to do the mundane stuff, add people to certain groups and sections, dish out awards and warnings etc.

Staff do this too but they also require specialist knowledge about the subject matters of the forum too, on this forum that subject matter is philosophy, politics and economics, for the most part.

Do you want to be a Staff member?

To be a staff member, I expect the following.

  1. Applicants should have posted at least 100 times.
  2. Applicants will post one thread at a minimum per day in each of the three main sections - philosophy, sociology and spirituality. I also expect that they will take part in every section and post replies frequently.
  3. Has read the forum rules for each section and clearly understands the warning system - will try to always be impartial and will respect admin decisions as final.
  4. Applicants must not have any warnings to their profile, or must not have had any warnings for at least a month.
  5. Accepts that Staff members are held to a higher standard compared to other members and if found to be breaking the rules, or abusing privileges, will be stripped of their position and banned permanently from the forum - this will add you to the stop forum spam database and may affect your ability to register on other forums.
  6. You will be expected to think of ways to improve the forum.
  7. Staff members will go through a one month probationary period as a Moderator and then will be made Staff, which will have a 3 month trial period.

To apply for the position of Staff or Mod, please post here, with a breif description about why you think you would be suited to this position and I will respond to you via PM in due time.


Words are greater than we.
Warning system for reference-
Crito, we ought to offer a cock to Asclepius. See to it, and don't forget.
I may not fit the criteria nor the posting activity in recent weeks. I still however, read incognito and still maintain a decent understanding of the happenings amongst the forums. I am more that willing to help lift the weight off the shoulders of the admins in whatever way you require my attendance. 

With some experience on larger more structured forums I understand the discretion needed to help sustain the continuity of the content, and manners expected, so that the forum is healthy, troll free and overall a smooth experience for the board. 

I only took it upon myself to apply because no one else had and I thought I would offer a hand.

In Solidarity.
