Your application lacks a lot of detail.

Why do you want to be a moderator again?
What good will you do for AA's community?

The only thing I don't like about you, is that you take your job too seriously at times, and it's hard to get to know you. But I'll give you this much - you're a nice person when someone takes the time to get to know you.

Plus.. I'm not sure if there's a need for your application. Couldn't you just PM Ken? o.o
Theres no such thing as taking a job to seriously. Its a job. If you fail to take it seriously, then, well. I'll stop talking.
Tell me, SASSZAIN, whats the point of this community? To chit chat, and discuss about certain topics. Which in general is supposed to be fun.
Correct?

Yes.
You can't possibly have fun if you're on here looking for something to correct. You have to be semi layed back. Of course, theres a time to be serious..

But there's also a time to be layed back.
I retired moderating because I failed to realize this, and I had the AA community turn against me because of how I handled things.
Which was being too serious. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

So yes. There is such a thing as taking your job too seriously. In this case.
Hmm. I'd need a better example before I'll agree. I still believe that one cannot take a job, such as this, too seriously. One can just go about doing that job wrong. Since i was never familiarized with your situation, I can't comment on that.
I'll make one comment, then if you still wish to continue, PM me.

I was a very uptight person (much like yourself) I didn't let anything slide

I was a total bish, and I just took it way too seriously. I was never layed back. And my new approach (being more layed back) has me liked by.. 90+% of AA. And that works in my favor.

And plus, I like the change a lot too.
So yes, a job on a forum can be taken too seriously.
Kthanx.
Decisions to decisions are made and not bought, but I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot. I guess not.

Symos, I've said this before in other apps.
And I'll say it here, because it seems like I need to.


When you become a Mod, If you do, There is a large portion of AA who will hate you. If you can't handle that, Then please, Don't try and become a Mod.
If you are ready to NOT be liked, then, Pursue this app. I think you can take the heat.
Remember, Being a mod isn't a popularity contest. Its about upholding the rules, and keeping things safe.

I understand that completely. Many a time in my former run had I been targeted. I am prepared.

I voted yes before but I forgot to post T-T;;;

I am so sorry T-T;;

I voted yes because I have yet to see you get into a personal vendetta or lose your cool.

I think that you would take the job seriously but still be a good guy to talk to in chat.


Those are my two cents,
thank you and godspeed.

haHA..I...said...god.. -.-;;

Well, you've been a member of this site for a long time and haven't been banned, so that's a plus. But I haven't seen you in the forums (perhaps I'm just not in the right ones) so I'm going to hold my vote for now, but a yes from me seems likely.
