Hi Everyone,

is looking for new moderators to join our team.

It is an excellent opportunity to help this community be better for everyone.

Fill out this form: [https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdj2Uj1JJg3cDuP7suqdzn-DeCeKZX3M1NJ\_gCGsE-m\_HNoLA/viewform](https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdj2Uj1JJg3cDuP7suqdzn-DeCeKZX3M1NJ_gCGsE-m_HNoLA/viewform)

If you have any questions before you apply, please put them in this thread. (We’ll only be enforcing Rule 1 for this thread, automod be damned)

We don’t know what kind of demand we’ll have, so we can’t promise an individual response for every applicant.

Thank you

This might be as good a moment as ever to ask: As a frequent user of this subreddit I’ve always wondered why threads/posts are always **deleted** instead of **locked**? It’s not really a policy I support so that would definitely be something to discourage me from getting involved.
Is this just some kind of limitation of Reddit’s moderation tools or is there a specific policy reason for it? All traditional forums I’ve ever moderated would only ever mandate to delete posts or threads if the presence of the content itself was objectionable or offensive, not if the post was merely misplaced.
