Moderators required!

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 08-Jul-05 12:58:12

Dear all,

We're looking for a couple more moderators. The current team do an amazing job and of course to some extent you are all moderators - plenty of you email us if you feel something is getting out of hand and for that we're very grateful - but we feel that given how busy the site now is, we need a few more official folks, with access to our direct contact details, watching over it.

Being a moderator requires a diplomacy and restraint, so if those aren't your strong points please do keep posting on Talk, but don't apply to be a moderator . Of course being around a lot also helps.

Moderators essentially have two roles. The first is to help out if queries (including media requests please) aren't answered by bumping and cajoling responses. The second is to attempt to (!) calm inflammatory situations, intervene where misunderstandings occur and keep mumsnet HQ informed (via email and tel if necessary) of anything that might warrant intervention.

It's a purely voluntary post (ie unpaid sadly) but you do get your pic on the mods page so it's not without glamour. If anyone would like to volunteer, please email

Many thanks

The mumsnet team

MrsGordonRamsay Fri 08-Jul-05 12:59:57

Great excuse to spend all day every day on MN

Diplomacy would not be my strong point at times.

Enid Fri 08-Jul-05 13:00:20

Hurrah! At last.

Do I get to delete posts

Calming inflammatory situations! Surely I am your woman

lou33 Fri 08-Jul-05 13:01:05

can we give the new applicants a grilling?

Enid Fri 08-Jul-05 13:01:35

Oh go on please, it would be funny

Enid Fri 08-Jul-05 13:10:51

Ahem..can I just put my mod hat on for a moment

Enid Fri 08-Jul-05 13:11:18

Reluctant as I am to throw my mod hat into the arena...

fishfinger Fri 08-Jul-05 13:11:35

i cant do it

am too inflammatory

i resigended before so i could be more norty

nutcracker Fri 08-Jul-05 13:11:46

Hmmm i'm on here often enough but I don't think I have a strong enough personality.

They need to be people who people will listen to I think.

Enid Fri 08-Jul-05 13:11:52

Ok guys, I hate to do this but can I just remind you of the mumsnet philosophy

Oh stop whinging fgs

snafu Fri 08-Jul-05 13:12:28

Enid, can you pull your mod finger out please?

"Being a moderator requires a diplomacy and restraint, so if those aren't your strong points please do keep posting on Talk, but don't apply to be a moderator"

Enid Fri 08-Jul-05 13:13:07

mod finger


snafu Fri 08-Jul-05 13:13:41

Does this mean MN Towers can refuse applications as well? 'No, sorry, you're a trouble maker and we've got our eye on you anyway'...

Enid Fri 08-Jul-05 13:13:46

no really lou, am rubbish and not to be relied upon

Enid Fri 08-Jul-05 13:14:30

lol snafu

"we've got our eye on you sonny jim"

snafu Fri 08-Jul-05 13:15:46

I reckon MN have a black book with some of our names in it (not mine of course)

Fio2 Fri 08-Jul-05 13:19:02

"Being a moderator requires a diplomacy and restraint"

aaahhhhh and I was going to suggest myself up until that point

Fio2 Fri 08-Jul-05 13:19:49

ooooo sorry NDP, didnt realise you had posted the same

theres an echo an echo

NomDePlume Fri 08-Jul-05 13:21:33

Lol, Fio

Lol, Fio

Lol, Fio

Fio2 Fri 08-Jul-05 13:22:53


I've been thinking about this - would it be possible to have posts/people deleted temporarily (suspend a poster, say, and disappear all their posts until someone official gets involved) if enough different posters raise an alert? (or if 2 moderators raise an alert?)

There would have to be a "report this posting" button on each post, or at least one visible to moderators ...

nailpolish Sat 09-Jul-05 10:18:42

diplomacy and restraint are my middle names

but does it mean you cant be controversial, a la cod?

plus im not an expert in any subject

would be mortified if got refused!

QueenEagle Sat 09-Jul-05 10:19:15

Think I'd quite fancy applying for it, what do ya reckon??

charleepeters Sat 09-Jul-05 10:29:15

i dont mind doing it if u still need people

WideWebWitch Sat 09-Jul-05 10:31:09

ha ha at the idea of enid and cod job sharing!

PowerCrazyNewMod Sat 09-Jul-05 10:35:51

Right, you lot, just so you all know I have got the job now so no-one else need apply ok?

Yes! Yes! Yes! I have the power mwahahaha!!

jessicaandbumpsmummy Sat 09-Jul-05 10:36:28

im here enough to do it, but you may think im a bit OTT with some of my comments.

PowerCrazyNewMod Sat 09-Jul-05 10:39:30

Ban them all, I say, ban them all.

www let that be a lesson to you.

Put anything like that again sonny jim and you'll be banned, banned I say.

swiperfox Sat 09-Jul-05 11:03:54

I would do it - have thought about doing it before but chickened out!! It would certainly justify spending my whole life on here lol

charleepeters Sat 09-Jul-05 11:05:16

I have a constant broadband connection so could always pop in if needed

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 11:46:41

Me too, CP.

Could be HunkerModker <<whimsical>>

Hulababy Sat 09-Jul-05 12:08:52

can't see why it'd be a problem lockets. tell him to send an email in

hercules Sat 09-Jul-05 14:07:03

I'll do feeding one on the condition I can delete messages from the early weaners clique!

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 14:08:38

don't see why not lockets

i think you, wmf and qe would all be excellent choices

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 14:08:58

I have emailed. I fancy being HunkerModker


lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 14:09:08

hercs, we don't mod specific areas now, we all cover all topics

hercules Sat 09-Jul-05 14:10:00

so I can get em anywhere?

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 14:10:18

I applied as well, I thought it would justify the amount of time I spend here to dh

wheresmyfroggy Sat 09-Jul-05 14:11:58

Lou33-does that mean that lockets could wear the moderator outfit you showed us?

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 14:12:07

if we had the ability to delete then yes you could!

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 14:12:31

thats mine wmf, she has to find her own one

i suggest ebay

wheresmyfroggy Sat 09-Jul-05 14:19:38

I found mine lou33 do you think it gives an air of responsiblity and authority?

hercules Sat 09-Jul-05 14:21:00

it has an air of something.........

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 14:21:41

pretty good, as long as you top it off with the tache and holder

wheresmyfroggy Sat 09-Jul-05 14:22:41

Marvellous, I imagined a pipe though

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 14:23:52
wheresmyfroggy Sat 09-Jul-05 14:25:29

Bring out the gimp!!!!!!

I like the look of lockets, not sure about my helmet though

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 14:25:42

or if you want a more hardcore modding outfit .....

this is getting addictive , i am off to boil some eggs

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 14:26:15

helmet does look a bit red i agree

<definitely going now>

wheresmyfroggy Sat 09-Jul-05 14:27:06

Like the gimp sim though

QueenOfQuotes Sat 09-Jul-05 15:25:45

Being a moderator requires a diplomacy and restraint, so if those aren't your strong points please do keep posting on Talk, but don't apply to be a moderator"

Snap to everyone else who's said that rules them out

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 15:37:10

I have volunteered to be a mod on TELLY ADDICTS as I don't think there is one for that topic
I have emailed MN Towers

I also need a job title to justify spending hours and hours on here


Pixiefish Sat 09-Jul-05 15:52:44

We have to mod the whole board now RTKM. The specific areas have long gone. Well done for volunteering all

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 15:58:44

Thanks Pixiefish

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 16:00:01

You're already the unofficial queen of Telly Addicts anyway, Kanga!

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 16:05:41

Thanks WWB

sobernow Sat 09-Jul-05 16:18:22

Do we have to sign a Moderators' Pledge so that we can't have a drink while we're on here? Maybe that's just the incentive some of us need

at Enid's audition btw......."Next!"......

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 16:30:25

I think sometimes we need a stiff drink before we wade in

Tortington Sat 09-Jul-05 17:06:48

diplomacy and restraint eh?
hmmmmmmmmm <scratches chinthoughtfully>

Nbg Sat 09-Jul-05 17:10:13

I take it all the post's are taken then?

PowerCrazyNewMod Sat 09-Jul-05 17:51:47

The job is mine, all mine I tell you

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 17:55:18

We don't know yet, Nbg, MN are still considering which of us they laugh uncontrollably at, and which they give the jobs to.

Nbg Sat 09-Jul-05 17:58:17

Ooooh, I applied!!

QueenEagle Sat 09-Jul-05 18:00:30

So did I.

Have this vision now of MNHQ "laughing uncontrollably" at my interest and nudging each other saying "Rachel, Justine - you seen this clown who fancies herself as a mod?"

ModeratorSenoraPostrophe Sat 09-Jul-05 18:11:32

Please bear in mind that we all know how difficult this moderating business can be, and if there's one thing all of us could do with, it's some head support

How did I do?

who needs to apply anyway?

Nbg Sat 09-Jul-05 18:11:34

I'd love to know how they're going to decide!

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 18:19:27

Did you all write very serious application emails? I fear mine may just have been a!

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 18:20:50

Mine was rather ... erm ... whimsical as well.

Nbg Sat 09-Jul-05 18:22:54

I think mine consisted of 2 lines!

MarsLady Sat 09-Jul-05 18:23:58

so how do I apply? I have lemon drizzle cake you know! lol

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 18:24:35

Oh, bribery and corruption!

Hulababy Sat 09-Jul-05 18:24:53

Don't forget to practise writing your little paragraph for the moderator's page too - and decide on your photo.

I have to update mine.

Nbg Sat 09-Jul-05 18:26:21

I have a cupboard full of chocolate!

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 18:27:49

More bribery and corruption!

I have Jaffa cakes and fresh-cream strawberry tarts

MarsLady Sat 09-Jul-05 18:29:09

I have homemade jam and darling DTs

Nbg Sat 09-Jul-05 18:32:22

I can't beat Homemade Jam and Jaffa Cakes!

No, please don't vote on here. It's not a popularity contest. Let MN decide, they know what's best.

purpleturtle Sat 09-Jul-05 18:57:01

Surely it can be intellectual property though...

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 18:58:24

you do realise that those successful applicants have to be jumped in like the girl gangs in the states?

can you stand the pain?

you can still claim if you can proove substantial similarity though

I should be making better use of my time shouldn't I?

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 19:03:37

The real test would be whether we can stand the pain whilst still keeping up our diplomacy and restraint and without contravening the MN swearing policy, Lou!

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:08:47

yes, you get the idea

plus you have to have the mn logo tattooed on your bum

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 19:09:06

Lou, I already have that

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:10:18

in which case you probably are at an advantage over the others

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 19:11:11

I am ed

sobernow Sat 09-Jul-05 19:13:12

I was thinking of having broadband fitted to my back teeth, with a keyboard embedded in the palm of my left hand. I could have a troll alert inserted as well, not sure where...

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:13:27

no need to show it off quite so much my dear

there's a good one in camberley i highly recommend, my mate has just given over £600 to them for a full back tattoo, which will take 11 trips to do

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 19:13:46

I think we could probably suggest some suitable places, sobernow

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 19:13:47

I have the whole website address on mine LOU cos mine is of such generous proportions

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:14:53

can you fit the archives on as well kanga?

that could be handy

sobernow Sat 09-Jul-05 19:14:56

WWB. None taken!

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 19:15:06

11 trips?


I think that would be taking allegience to MN a little too far ... I could probably cope with one that covered an entire buttock.

Or one entire boob, which in my case is nearly the same amount of skin.

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 19:15:51

yes, sure can!!!!!!!!!!!!

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:16:08

it will look great when it is done tho, he spotted the design when he took me to have mine done

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:16:39


but what would we push for the search button?

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 19:16:53

But 11 trips?

That's gotta hurt.

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 19:17:00


lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:18:10

it will cover his whole back, a japanese etching, all in black and white and shading

i am going to go with him and watch him cry and hold his hand while sniggering into my sleeve

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 19:18:39

more of a twiddle than push

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 19:19:34

A really dim question but do you need sun tan lotion on a huge tatoo like that?????

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:19:39


lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:21:16

he will have to keeo it out of the sun for a few weeks initially to stop fading, then after the scabbing hasgone you treat it like normal skin, so yes he would put sun cream on if it was hot

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 19:23:13

<< ouch >>

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 19:38:24

Why are you shocked at me, LGJ?

MrsGordonRamsay Sat 09-Jul-05 19:39:51

A tattoo

Don't mind me I just hate the bllody things

Cam Sat 09-Jul-05 19:40:42

lou, you've taken this thread right off subject, I guess that's an example of what a good moderator can do

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:42:58

hehe, sneaky eh?

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:43:25

mgr, i have 2 of those bloody things

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 19:43:46

<<whispers>> LGJ, do you really think I have a tattoo on my backside of the MN logo?

To Lou - of course I have!

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 19:46:32

btw does indellable pen count cos I don't want a tattoo

<< coward here >>

I have some of suzy's brownies on offer here or I could do for the mntowers anyway

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 19:47:14

Blimey, wouldn't like to be MN Towers making this decision. Lots of but [brave] faces when the new mods are announced

MrsGordonRamsay Sat 09-Jul-05 19:47:55


I know you do, I just hate them,sorry

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:50:12

it's ok, different strokes etc

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 19:50:53

Does it count how many hours you are here per day???

I am on at 9am until about 1 or 2 am

so that is 16 hours per day

Now that is dedication

wheresmyfroggy Sat 09-Jul-05 19:51:48

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:55:35

seriously, i do think a bloke onboard would be good, balance things out a bit

but only if you promise to wear one of those outfits

HappyHuggy Sat 09-Jul-05 19:55:35

I think you'd all be fab!!!!!

<<<am hoping to be offered some of those bribes for being nice>>>>>>

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 19:56:29

Does anyone know the criteria for being a mod?

Special calming influence skills?

No history of whimsical namechanges?

Current mods, what was the process for being selected, oh wise ones?

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:56:45

test of your mettle coming up with a new circumcision thread starting, see how calm you can keep it

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:57:06

they advertised and i replied

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 19:57:34

Thought I was doing a sterling job thus far on the willy-snipping thread, Lou

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 19:59:47

ah but all is quiet on the western front atm, let's see how you do when teh going gets hot

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 20:16:33

Can we make it hot, then calm it down, or am I missing the point?

RTKangaMummy Sat 09-Jul-05 20:30:41

But what if Haven has a real problem with her little boy

And she has been told he should have it done

If everyone argues about it she may worry even more that she is making the wrong choice

Shouldn't we try to help her rather than argue?

Whizzz Sat 09-Jul-05 20:33:16

I could volunteer - I have diplomacy and have never flounced ! What do you think ??

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 20:39:39

no you can't heat it up!

point is to keep it to a reasoned debate, stop any bust ups and keep it on track

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 20:40:21

How about if I change my name to heat it up? That's allowed, right?

Emod Sat 09-Jul-05 20:41:44

Right all of you.

MNet Towers has decreed that due to her years of fantastic advice and wit, Enid will be Chief Mod from now on.

She also has power to delete those who displease her with her mod finger.

The new regime starts here.

lou33 Sat 09-Jul-05 20:42:29

looks sternly at hunker....

hunkermunker Sat 09-Jul-05 21:33:12


Blimey, Lou, you're good!

WigWamBam Sat 09-Jul-05 21:43:25

And she didn't even have to finger anything that time, either

MarsLady Sat 09-Jul-05 21:51:12

Kanga just misread your post as they have appointed misery and happy out of a hat, as in that was their personalities..i was expecting it to be me though...

hunkermunker Mon 11-Jul-05 20:04:29

Out of a hat? Euphemism for "not picking that nutter hunker" - PMSL!

lemonice Mon 11-Jul-05 20:07:05

They're cunningly diplomatic at Mumsnet Towers...

whimsicaltrifle Mon 11-Jul-05 20:09:31

Aren't they just!

RTKangaMummy Mon 11-Jul-05 20:09:58


lemonice Mon 11-Jul-05 20:11:49

I hasten to add that i didn't apply, far too much fun this side of the wire...

lou33 Mon 11-Jul-05 20:20:11

sansouci Mon 11-Jul-05 20:23:16

I'd be happy to try. I am usually diplomatic!

I don't know if this is a problem or not, tho: I live in Switzerland. I'm half Brit, half Canuck but very up on British culture & news since dh hails from Somerset (ohhh-arrrrrr!) & is so verrry English that it can't help but "colour" the rest of us.
