With the constant growth of our mod team and the demanding nature of actually having lives outside of niche internet communities, Ada and I have come to the decision that the mod team once again needs to expand.
Applications work the same way they did the last two mod calls:
Post a brief write-up on yourself and why you think we should give you moderator status, as well as a link to at least one other social media account. (reddit, twitter, instagram, facebook, mastodon, tumblr, bluesky are all accepted.) If you don’t want your alts to be public, you can send them as a private DM to me. Applications don’t have a fixed close date, but we’re looking for at least four new mods in multiple time zones.

I will be personally selecting all new additions to the mod team. Please be civil, and good luck!

    Any 196 mods, new or old that are on Matrix, please let me know. We have a matrix mod bot that will help deal with spam attacks that we can set you up with.

    Hello! I would also like to join and help out at 196. My main Account on World got banned from a Troll-Mod for being “nice to trans People and rude to Transphobes”, I hope this speaks in my favor? I really like 196. It has such a chill vibe and fantastic people! I live in Germany, and I’m active in politics (VOLT).

    I hate when people just come in a spam bullshit and harass people. This is such an Immature behavior and just annoying af. I do my best to report them as fast a possible but I would like to do more! If I can help in some way I’m here :D

    My Mastodon: https://troet.cafe/@Roflmasterbigpimp

    It’s all in German, tho. But translators will do the Job, I guess :P

      For the extremely rare case of someone who somehow doesn’t have ANY other social media, I’m sure we can work something out.

    If I can stop random floods of dick pics by drunks, I’m down. Also, let’s make this a public application, shall we?

    My social media handle is common between Lemmy and Reddit, so no hiding there. I was a mod of /r/Chameleons for a while, as well as some other subs. Needless to say, reptile owners are a unique breed and have even delt with just about every type of human.(My account on Reddit is stale and I quit /r/Chameleons during the third-party app exodus. My main function was to shut down user-user conflict and coordinate with other mods during brigading events, which were more common on reptile subs than you would think.)

    I am very active on Lemmy and I’ll use an alt for any modding stuffs, specific to the community and instance. (I am mostly instance agnostic, but for my daily driving I use lemmy.ca and haven’t had a need to use any other one yet. lemmy.world was annoying, so I moved my “main” account after a short trial.)

    Also, I like long walks on sandy beaches just before sunset. That puts my formal modding hours between 11PM and 6AM UTC but I do check Lemmy throughout the day.

    Unless its an active troll pushing state funded propaganda, I can roll with just about anything within the laws of the land. Modding 196 could be fun, but I’ll just resign the position myself if it doesn’t work. No hard feelings.

    [OMG UR HIRED / wut?] – Circle one choice.

    Is it ok that I’m in my 80s and a little senile? How about if I was very senile?

    Note that Lemmy DM’s aren’t that private. I’m not really into sharing other accounts in general but if you don’t get any bites let me know.

    I’m interested, but I worry I might not consistently have enough uptime. What would be the expectations, kinda?

      Basically just help out when you have the time. If you’re really interested, just write up an application as a reply to this post/comment

        Take into account the time it has taken me to respond, and the fact that I have absolutely zero prior experience, but if you do still need anything little extra, I’d love to help.

        My timezone is utc+3 (summer time), and if you do still want help, tell me so I dm you my socials.

        Otherwise, stay strong, and keep keeping this place cool!

            Given the amount of time it has been? Yeah sure, lol

            I’m not gonna do much, but I’ve seen a couple cheap trolls in my time here, and it’d feel good to remove them myself rather than passing it on to someone else.

    Yes hello I’m located in the EST zone and spend an unhealthy amount of time on 196.

    I already run c/montreal on Lemmy.ca, so I’m familiar with the tools.
