    Are you tough enough to moderate weebie hut Jr's? I want you to join the moderation team for the Akihabara District.

    I'm not going to beat around the bush, the District isn't in the best shape. This thread isn't to point fingers, its to fix the issue, rejuvenate the sections and grow. I'm looking for motivated individuals who have no aspirations in life other then to mod a chinese finger painting forum's anime and manga sections. This opening is for a full position as a section moderator, you will have all the powers and privileges that come with that. However this isn't a passive position, the position can and will be revoked if the position is not taken seriously.

    To sign up you can post your resume in the , tag me or white wolf(so he will bug me), and make sure you title the thread [Akihabara]. This thread will remain open to answer questions, so you can post your resume here if you so wish, but all resume's submitted will be treated as equals. A number of factors are going to be considered, some you can guess, others beyond mere ningen comprehension.


    Resume questions

    1) Do you have modding experience? If so list them. If you cannot prove your claim then its no good here.
    2) Do you wish to help make the District a better place? Do you have any idea's what can be done.
    3) Being a moderator requires you to be social and willingness to work with others, how well can you abide by this?
    4) This requires a lot of time, do you have it to spare and are you willing to spare it?
    5) Do you still even read manga or watch anime? Who is the best monogatari girl?
    6) Do you have any beefs with members that might impede your ability to moderate? Everyone has a few enemies, best to make it clear upfront.
    7) Do you follow currently airing anime or read weekly manga.
    8) Do you have any other skills that would be relevant for the forum, like tech experience?

    Isn't this more an issue with NF's declining traffic and fresh blood the last few years? The last two in particular. The thing is that the Akihabara distract, since it doesn't really have any one particular thing, requires an extremely broad and varied set of interests that can only truly be met through sheer quantity. The decline in traffic hits a lot of places of course, I don't believe that any new leadership or ideas will help circumvent this issue, as already established members will tend to have cliques or social circles to have the discussions usually held there whether it's in Fanclubs, Convo threads, etc. which is why Akihabara probably feels the traffic impact more so than other places.

    Our activity is actually higher then it was a year ago, though I only have November to compare too at the moment.

    New leadership can change things, bring in new idea's, make the section more attractive, help bring people back to the section. There is a lot of people who would be posting, but they ran into issues where they would be the only ones posting. Getting one new poster in a thread would encourage at least one other person.

    I've changed my mind.

    lol No but seriously, I just realized I might be in over my head with this sort of thing and I really don't think it's for me. So I guess I'm retracting my form.

    But hey, this frees up space for a more willing and stoic individual! :D

    Is it okay to apply for the New Leaf mod and the Akihabara District mod simultaneously?
