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: Added you to the first post, you just need to edit in the missing bits :)

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