is looking for moderators


Hi everyone,

is looking for new moderators! If you’re interested, please fill out this form: [](

Applications will be open for several weeks. If you have any questions about what being a mod here entails, please leave a comment in this thread and one of us will get back to you. R1 always applies, but R3 is (mostly) waived for this thread.

Moderators are like referees in sports, without them nobody plays by the rules and that’s not really fun and potentially even dangerous!

ELI5 is like a club where a bunch of people can get together and discuss complex topics in simple terms, thus “Explain Like I’m 5”. But clubs have people in charge, moderators, which make sure the club keeps running smoothly.

ELI5 looking for moderators means they want more people to help run that amazing club so that everyone can keep having fun and a great time!

(Yes, I know. 😀 )

Do they get paid? What’s the benefit of being a mod?
