Looks like I'm like a month and a half too young xD oh well, this is good to hear, the more moderators the less spam reviews and recs.

Interesting topic and definitely curious to see how it goes. Gl to everyone!


I used to think you were already a mod, because you always started the episode discussions which usually notified me when a new episode was out lol. Good luck if you get a position.

To bad I'm not more active in the MAL community; it would have been awesome to be a Review/Recommendation Moderator. Good luck to those who are chosen ^_^

Less than 20 hours left! So get your News Moderator applications and Review Moderator nominations in!

We've received a decent response so far, but much less than I was expecting. So don't be shy and send me a message, if you'd like, before the deadline is up!

Want to be a New Mod but have no time. Oh well...I'll wait for another opening. Hopefully I can spare time when it comes by again.

It's about high time someone did this. The days of having an entire page dedicated to 1 line reviews will finally be over!

It's hilarious, I'd actually fulfill all restrictions to become a review moderator, but nobody knows me really well, so I guess I will not even try to apply. :P

I'm definitely wondering why the age restriction is needed. I mean, let me say, maturity doesn't depend on the physical age, but on the mental age. Sure, the chances that 18+ year-olds are likely more mature than 18- year-olds, but if a 16 year-old would fulfill all other restrictions, it would definitely mean that he's capable to properly cooperate with other 18+ moderators and is mature enough to deal with that job.

However if it's because there are Hentai reviews and recommendations, then I guess I can more or less understand the reason. But even if, everyone is able to look at the Hentai pages because there's no age block, therefore this would be an unwise reason for an age restriction, too. I am 20 years old, so it wouldn't matter for me, but I don't think it's necessary. You are qualified but can't join because you are two or three years too young. That's unfair in my opinion.

Hello! Just wanted to say, please have a read of what Kineta said on the first page of comments, directly relating to your statement.

I wouldn't mind becoming one, though I'm not sure if I can keep it up on a daily basis. Guess I'll just pass on this one...

Big thanks again to everyone that applied and sent nominations our way!

One of the great benefits of these application processes is hearing from users I wouldn't normally, and we honestly appreciate each and every user's interest in improving our community. Unfortunately, we did get more applications and nominations than we have spots for moderators, so not everyone will make it. However, we strongly encourage anyone that didn't get a chance to apply or won't make it this time to keep contributing to the community for next time! :)

Everyone who did message me should have received a PM back confirming that I received their message. If you didn't, please message me again.

We hope to notify the community of the new staff in the next 1-2 weeks. All applicants/nominees will need to go through a second round of skill-testingbuilding questions, so the process isn't over yet! Once we decide which users will be moving to the second round, all applicants and nominees will receive notification of this decision. Please note that I will not be notifying the users that did the nominating. The community will only be notified once the new mods are on-board via another announcement thread.

Please be patient with us during this process and we'll let everyone know the results soon!

I'm curious, why is there a difference of age between News and Review Moderators?

Like, you must be 18 for one and 17 for the other, what's the difference?

Hi there, for that answer you'll have to read Kineta's comment on the first page where she gives several reasons. Thanks

I'm 20 and have no life, please allow me to be a mod. Thank you!

Seriously. I don't know what English skill level I'm at, but I'd say advanced. I can't read Japanese at all but plan to this semester at college. I watch anime all day and night currently because it's summer, but during school I'll be doing the same but with classes breaking up the monotony.

Haha. Now I feel like a dumbass, where's the rope to hang myself?

I skim through everything when I read, my brain can't be bothered to stop.
