How can we become a moderator? Just curious….that way I have an excuse to spend a long time on YWN!November 26, 2008 9:05 pm at 9:05 pm #644525
BTW, How can you keep it a secret?
It seems to be a pretty full time job. So what do you tell your family/friends what your occupation is? That you are in kollel???November 26, 2008 9:13 pm at 9:13 pm #644526
I tell people that I am a greeting card salesman.

Being that this is not my job, I don’t have to lie. That is except to my boss on why I’m being unproductive. What am I supposed to say? There was a serious back and forth on the basics of Judaism and the (Yeshiva) World needed me!

YW Editor –
How does one become an editor? Am I stuck at only Moderating?
Don’t have internet –
you need internet for the Editor job – so I’m sorry but we are forced to turn you down.

Wait a sec here… if not for all us posters… YWN wouldnt be as big of a hit as it is (I chas veshalom am not degrading YWN I am only kibbitzing with my point to follow) and therefore we should get paid as “editors” or staff 😉November 27, 2008 4:34 am at 4:34 am #644541
i 2nd that! i charge 20$ an hourNovember 27, 2008 4:37 am at 4:37 am #644542
dont have internet –
we are sorry – due to the economy we are forced to let you go as we can’t afford to pay posters $20 an hour
(Now my job will be easier)
YWModerator-99November 27, 2008 4:47 am at 4:47 am #644543
fine, how about 1$ for every 1000 posts—is that more resonabale?November 27, 2008 4:50 am at 4:50 am #644544
How about this: In exchange for the YWN Coffee Room community keeping me to the wee hours of the morning so I can moderate your posts, we will provide you advertisements that are of interest to you. Click on them and use them.November 27, 2008 4:57 am at 4:57 am #644545
OK listen up people and pay attention carefully (I hope the editor isn’t reading). The 6 step test to be a ((ahem)) “greeting card salesman” is grueling.
1) you can not have had a post deleted or edited (even for spelling) in your past 100 submissions.
2) you need to identify the thread and provide the screen name of 200 randomly selected posts
3) you need to be able to identify by screen name the author of 100 randomly selected deleted posts and/or topic headings
4) you will be given a list and will have to be able to quote the IP address for 100 randomly selected screen names
5) you ned to havet he abilty to read pots adn undertsand wat is rely bein said
6) you have to be able to function on minimal food, drink and sleep.
are you up to it?
YW-Moderator-86November 27, 2008 5:01 am at 5:01 am #644546
didn’t you forget one?-
7)u have to be able to work quickly and efficiently so everyones reply’s get posted QUICKLY!!!November 27, 2008 5:24 am at 5:24 am #644547
I’m in for it all Moderator when do I get to join 😉 ????November 27, 2008 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #644548
Besides for no.6, I’m going for it…November 27, 2008 6:58 pm at 6:58 pm #644549
one question for moderators and editors when do you decide to block a usernameNovember 29, 2008 9:05 pm at 9:05 pm #644550
Do you need any help in Israel hours (morning in Israel…?) I’m sick of my job… 🙁November 30, 2008 12:20 am at 12:20 am #644551

answer from YW-Moderator-72 — Only on a slow day otherwise we ramp up. :o)November 30, 2008 12:26 am at 12:26 am #644552
Were there really 99 people on Wayne Gretzky’s team?
YWNModerator-99November 30, 2008 12:29 am at 12:29 am #644553
so what’s with mod-72 and mod-99? why don’t you guys also get regular screen names?November 30, 2008 12:38 am at 12:38 am #644554
We do. You just don’t know them. 🙂
YWNModerator-99November 30, 2008 1:08 am at 1:08 am #644555

There are VERY LONG periods, even in New York time, when posts are not moderated/reviewed for extended periods of times.
This makes conversation very difficult.
Any chance of finding a few additional volunteers to moderate when the other moderators are obviously busy?November 30, 2008 1:03 pm at 1:03 pm #644559
I think Joseph (is he the guy everyone is obsessed with for some odd reason?) is a fake. They probably have some usernames that they use to add flavor to the site.November 30, 2008 1:16 pm at 1:16 pm #644560
i will volunteerNovember 30, 2008 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm #644562
intellegent, I normally only add vanilla flavoring.November 30, 2008 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #644563
intelligent, think there are enough people with their own opinions to add “flavor” to this site.November 30, 2008 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm #644565
i’ve been thinking for some time that joseph really isn’t one of us. maybe he’s an undercover moderator or editor? something’s fishy with joseph!!!!December 1, 2008 1:25 am at 1:25 am #644566
Cant we just leave the poor guy alone???? If he is a mod then thats up to him to share or not…. just cuz you dont like what he has to say… he’s definitely a learned guy and we are ALL entitled to our opinions! As long as they follow the Torah of course 😉December 1, 2008 2:27 am at 2:27 am #644567
fine fine fine!!! sry mr. joseph!!!December 1, 2008 4:12 am at 4:12 am #644568
so… where can we prove our abilities?
I would love to help….especially if it gets me out of taking out the garbage… 🙂
ps- you really correct spelling? How come so many do not have them “corrected”? I think you really need help. You know who I am- I needed an email account to get this username.May 13, 2009 1:53 am at 1:53 am #644572
