Hi, everyone! I am currently looking to add a couple moderators to our forum. If you are interested, please fill out the form below and submit.

What is a moderator? A moderator is a user with elevated privileges to help clean up the forums, keep conflicts to a minimum and support PokemonGoHouston by helping to provide us information that is most talked about in the community, and most importantly, promotes interaction! Our goal is to have a friendly and fun environment for our community. We welcome constructive discussions pertaining to the game and various other topics. A moderator is expected to be active on the forums, open to criticisms, be positive, and able to reprimand as needed. Moderators are expected to help enforce the general rules of our forums.

Moderator Requirements: · I’m are looking for someone who is mature, positive, has contributed to the community and someone who wants to see our community grow even further. · You must have been a part of our community for at least 7 days with at least 10 posts. · You must not have any warnings or previous bans on your account. · While there are no required commitments, once you accept being a moderator, you are required to be active (at least a few hours per week) on the forums. Being a moderator is a volunteer position, so keep this in mind before committing! Moderators will get a 60 day (2 months) probationary period.

How will I know if I have been accepted? Thank you in advance for taking the time to apply, only those who have been chosen as a moderator will receive a notification. If you do not receive a response, then you were not chosen this time around.

 


Application Starts Here(if you can not see the form below, try switch to desktop view or you can always PM me from member profile):

People on this site are typically good. What we need is for the admin to delete spam posts and block the corresponding IP addresses from future posts.

Dos, I agree with you. This forum has been remarkably free of the ‘stuff’ I have seen on other websites. At the same time, it has stayed fun and not been stuffy or boring, at least IMHO. We really just need like you said, the mechanics of deleting the spam posts and blocking them in the future. So, I nominate the three leaders of the Gold Medal race as moderators! All in favor, say ‘Aye!”

But back to your points, a simple “report this post as stupid and needing to be trashed” is the main need. Other than the few bums selling the accounts, I cannot remember any unwelcome garbage in the last 4-6 months. Except, of course, when Ghost posted after too many shots of fireball last week. That was pretty brutal.

True. In my defense, AutoCorrect did that. Now, maybe that says something about what Siri thinks of my word choices.I guess it is possible the fireballs blurred the letters a little bit.

Does this thread need to remain stuck? We have a fantastic new mod, and the sticky thread is up to five now with the useful raid threads.
