Hi Everyone,

**Applications will be closing on April 22nd, 2021**

is looking for new moderators.

There is no pay. You can expect people to be rude to you. People will blame you personally for actions you take that are entirely in line with the subreddit rules. There is no personal glory, and you can’t use your position to cross promote yourself, your personal projects, or your other subreddits.

The only redeeming quality is that get help the community out, as a whole. If that sounds like a position you’re interested in, we’d love to hear from you.

Fill out this form: [https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfvnGCSZNJ_9Sviis-AX2GWF_V_f8Rr9u5c0Lp9lT2PE0Md2w/viewform?usp=sf_link](https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfvnGCSZNJ_9Sviis-AX2GWF_V_f8Rr9u5c0Lp9lT2PE0Md2w/viewform?usp=sf_link)

If you have any questions before you apply, please put them in this thread.

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

I’ll also use this thread as a brief opportunity to plug [/r/ideasforeli5](https://www.reddit.com/r/ideasforeli5), where any ideas for eli5 are presented directly to the moderators and for public discussion.

(Obviously Rule 3 doesn’t apply in this thread, the only real rules are try to stay mostly on topic and Rule 1 is never waived, so be nice!)

Thank you

Since the application has been open for a while, how has the demand been?

Ah, that makes sense.

Best of luck to whoever gets chosen. Seems like that can be very stressful.

As a current moderator, How many hours do you spend moderating this sub?

why should age be a determining factor?
