Hi there, Anime Vicers! The old "Meet Anime Vice's Mods" thread needed a revamp, so here's a new thread with everything you need!

Do you have a wiki-related problem? Is a spammer messing up the forums? Are things getting out of hand in a battle thread? You should probably contact a moderator! Of course, there are several moderators on this site and it can be hard to figure out which one to talk to. To make things easier, this topic functions as sort of a guide to get to know the moderators.

What is a Moderator?

Moderators are essentially the police force of Anime Vice. They are volunteers who give up some of their free time to patrol the forums, check wiki submissions, and make sure rules aren't being broken by other users. When rules are broken, mods will issue warnings, temporary bans, or permanent bans when appropriate.

Of course, that's not all moderators do! They also do the same stuff regular users do on the site, so feel free to chat to them like you would with any other user :)

How do you become a Moderator?

When there's a need for a new moderator, the current mod team discusses it and selects a user from the community. They then ask them if they would like to join the team, and if the user accepts, the moderators submit their recommendation to the staff who have the final say. If you would like to become a moderator, you just need to be an excellent user! Follow the rules and set a good example, and you might be chosen next time a new moderator is selected.

The Mod Squad!

Here are the current moderators, listed in order of joining the team from oldest to newest. To contact a mod, click on their name to go to their profile and write a message on their wall or send them a PM.

Taste in Anime/Manga: I am big on on the school genre (I have a uniform fetish), comedy, and I'm big on psychologically broken characters. So, if you know of any funny, psychological manga/anime based in a school, be sure to tell me (I've already watched The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya so think of others!)

Taste in Anime/Manga: Pretty much been exposed to nearly every genre of the medium being a fan for a decade-plus and all. Preference is for anything out of the ordinary (tend to favor recent titles that do such like Aku no Hana or Kids on the Slope). But I will torture myself for your pleasure with horrible titles via my Ani-Crap Reviews.

Congrats Acura. What are we covering, the wiki or the forums?

@Dream: Thanks, Dream!

What are we covering, the wiki or the forums?

Since I moderated both the wiki and forums on Screened, I think I'll continue doing that over here.

@Acura_Max: Congratulations, Acura! Makes sense since you had to control Screened as long as you could. XD

@taichokage:

It was today and out of the blue. Interestingly, none of the mods were informed. It was a big surprise for everyone except the RPG community who sent out a great letter of Rec to Tom.

@takashichea: Wow. Such respect so early on. I remember his 1000 post blog. Everybody had already recognized him as a great user.

@taichokage:

I had concerns it was bit too early since it had passed his Anime Vice's 1st Year anniversary. He will gain some years. Hopefully, it will satisfy most users who were candidates for mods.

He did a lot of work:

  • Vapovile's AV Battle Usage Project - I wish our data was put to good use. Oh well, we have our achievements and things that didn't go right.
  • Helping WayBig and IndridCold become good RPG folks
  • Pushing policies in the RPG forum. I don't know much about the policies yet since I haven't kept tabs on the community for a while.

@takashichea: I think it'll be fine. Vapovile is one of those guys I never once saw lose his cool and the mass of support indicates how much he became appreciated. I was wondering where he went. I had little idea he was that impacting in RPG, only that he was a regular.

@taichokage:

Because the RPG's commenting is different from battle comments, so his forum count and activity was slow down. It looks like he was a ghost. He was making huge comments because in the RPG forum, you build stories using a character(s).

@taichokage: Thanks man! Yeah, I've been hanging around the RPG section. Takes up quite a lot of my time compared to the battles section. But who knows, I might swing by the battles section to see how you guys have been doing since I left :). You were honestly one of the coolest people to watch debate when I was a Battles regular. Keep being awesome man.

@takashichea: RPG posts do in general take longer to make, so it kinda slowed my posting down a bit like you said. But hey, I think I might branch out a little bit now. I look kinda silly in the mod roster, only having 40 wiki points when everyone else has thousands xD.
