Hello folks,

arphalia has left our team, and we thank him for his work with us!

This means that Artists_Beware is opening for moderator applications.

What we need:

  • Discord is a must (there is both a desktop and in-browser version, so it’s quite accessible). All of our communication takes place on the A_B mod chat. We also require Skype as a back up. This is not negotiable. It must be easy to reach you.
  • Based in the US or availability during US time zones. Our most active hours are between 1 pm central to 9 pm central.
  • Moderators work in pairs for reviewing bewares, never alone, so you need to be able to be around at a time that lets you work with another moderator.
  • You will need to be able to calmly and professionally handle harassment and disagreements.
  • There will be an interview and a training period before you are fully brought on to help discern if you are a good fit.
  • You must keep your Livejournal password and email password secure and separated. It might be best to make a separate private email just for A_B business.


  • You can opt to do queue work only, thus not moderating comments.
  • If you choose to do comment moderation, be prepared to receive a lot of A_B related email. Every comment and edit is emailed to comment moderators.
  • Queue only moderators can opt out of fielding user questions.
  • The queue and any A_B related content are to remain confidential.

    To apply fill out the following form:

    Length in A_B: (How long have you been a member)
    Hours of Availability (in Central time): (The hours you will best be able to do queue work.)
    Previous Experience: (Have you moderated a community before? It doesn't have to be specific to Livejournal, but knowing Livejournal's moderator interface would be helpful.)
    Other Items to Know: (Are you a commission artist? Fursuit maker? Fluent in another language besides English?)
    Why would you like to moderate A_B?:
    Best way to contact you?: (LJ PM, email, etc.)

    Should the application form be submitted via comment, PM, or email?

    How many hours a week are you looking for mods to put in? If someone could work ten hours on one day but only one or none on other days is that a deal breaker?

    It would depend a bit. Right now the problem is that I can only help Cel with the queue on my one day off a week or so, so posts often have to sit until that day comes. If we had another moderator basically in the exact same position, I don't think it would be very helpful. But simply not being available every single day on its own wouldn't be a dealbreaker. They would need to be more active than me, though. I think I'd need a better idea of your schedule (and the form does ask for that info, so if you're interested, feel free to fill it out!).
