    We're looking to add a new moderator to the staff (possibly more). Ideally, we'd like someone that can not only help out a bit with actual moderation duties, but also help generate a bit of activity (engaging with people in the work threads, posting HITs here and there, helping to make sure questions are being answered, etc). Also, someone that can be around in the early morning would be preferable, as that seems to be when forum activity/staff coverage is at the lowest lately.

    If you're interested in helping out, or if you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. Thanks.

    I wouldn't mind being considered. I log on around 7 AM EST every weekday morning. I post some HITs already but I can make an effort to post more.

    I volunteer if needed. I’m at 5:30am-mid afternoon person mostly anyway.


    I will be out of the country May 30-june 9th if that’s an issue

    But I do work so that can be an issue I suppose :bag:

    But I enjoy chatting and whatnot

    I would be happy to throw my name in the ring as a backup. Unfortunately, my schedule rotates around my tyrant children so I couldn't commit to firm hours :( Unless someone would like to babysit....

    Thank you everyone for volunteering to help. I think we're definitely looking for at least a couple people now, but
    haven't really had a chance to fully discuss things yet. So I'm going to leave this open for at least another day or two, I think.

    I'm not really expecting anyone to devote full time hours to this or anything. I like having a lot of people on staff so things don't always rest too much on one person's shoulders, so even if you were only available for like an hour or two per day, that's fine. It's entirely up to you.

    I'm always around in the morning and during the day. I do start working/student teaching in August, but until then I'll be around if you need me! I know how to lay down the law. I always pretend I'm mod when Jan goes to do car pool.

    I would have loved to unban some people, just so I could ban them again as a part of my reign of terror. But sadly, I’m a responsible adult person now.

    Closing this. I'll be honest, we only expected like one or maybe two people to volunteer. We'll have to discuss some things and figure out exactly what our needs are, and we'll start reaching out to you all.
