I just hope that if you do become a mod you won't encourage the trouble makers like some of the other mods do.

In my opinion, it's about time you applied.
I believe you will become an exelent moderator, you're app is very well writtena nd well structured, your attitude and behavior are a great example to follow and you have already provided the current mods some precious help.

All in all I think you have what it takes to be a good mod as long as you're prepared for the adversities that come with it.

A Moderator's duty is to discourage such behavior.

Well I believe I'm ready for anything.

I have been a member of this site for approximately two years. Since joining, I have never spammed, nor have I ever been banned or suspended from this site. I will admit that I have argued back with some users in the past, and simply, there is nothing I can really say to justify my reactions.

I also want to make it clear that if I were to become a Moderator, that it is a serious and delicate task. To me, being a Moderator means being the Webmaster's assistant in enforcing the rules of this site, and to warn members of their conducts. In addition, in becoming a Moderator, I understand that it will mean to choose to do the right thing in any given situation, even if it means making some friends angry.

Furthermore, I also understand that I were to become a Moderator, that I would loose the so-called 'privilege' of spamming, arguing, etc...In my eyes, these are not privileged. No where in the rules does it say that a user is entitled to do such actions, rather, they are prohibited.

Finally, I am also able to work with people in a consistent and professional matter. I know that some of you might disagree to the above statement. However, in my defense, no one here has seen me in a professional capacity. I work with a variety of personalities in the past few years, as being an public servant, a cadet commander, and a customer service clerk.

I hope that you will find me fit to become a Moderator. If you have any questions, please post your questions here, or feel free to PM me, and I will answer your questions as soon as I can.


If we made mods based only on their applications, then you would definitely get it.

But I can't say I know you well enough to say yes, despite the fact that you have a million more post than me, I rarely see you around doing any sort of posting, and I don't really know you beyond a few words exchanged here and there.

So I'm going to reserve judgement, I'll enjoy speaking with you in the future though.
Yeah, you were right about me, but can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me? in the choir, I saw our sad Messiah he was bored and tired of my laments

I am voting, yes, most definitely. I could think of no one better =]. The fact that you managed to get me to come into the Mod Apps Section is proof enough.
I rarely tread into this area but I believe you would make the perfect Mod.
You are a great friend, you always follow the rules and I'm sure there are heaps of others who will or already look up to you as much as I do ^^

Thank you very much for your compliment about my application.

Well, like I've said, I left the forums because I was expecting to be appointed to the Juvenile Justice Commission. If I was appointed, it would have consumed a lot of my time and energy.
However, since I was not appointed, I recently came back to the forums. The only differences
that I have noticed thus far is the attitudes of some of the users have changed as well as some other users have left.

However, I'll do my best to create the chance to become better acquainted.

A YES from me!

At last you finally applied for being a mod! I know you'll be a great mod. You're disciplined and you make wise judgments in decisions you make.
Please check out my Mod App
See my Drawings ^_^

Well, if people would have told me sooner, I probably would have done it XD. I didn't think I would have gained this much support.

Although you get support here, there will always be a minority that simply don't like you cause you are a mod.

I think you can handle that.

I think so too. When I was promoted to C/First Lieutenant a small faction of my unit didn't like me because I was an officer. However, over time, some got past that difference, and others didn't like me because I was an officer...Sure didn't stop me from performing my duties, and from there on, I only went up.

However, I have one quick note; you need to become more active if you wish to succeed in becoming a great Moderator. Also I heard that you were going to leave the forum and only be part of the Chat. What does this comply?

No opinion yet. You're a decent person, but I'm not sure you're fit for the job. I'll stop by later.

[size=84] Congratulations.

And I quoted the wrong person.
I meant to quote Hallow Ichigo.

Sorry Athos.
