I would love to know what you mods’ hours are. I sometimes have to wait several hours for my posts to be approved while other times it takes only a couple of minutes…Do you have set hours or do you work at your own convenience…? If you do have set hours- can you please post them?November 23, 2010 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm #712097so rightMember
Maybe they can find more volunteers to moderate, to fill in when the other mods are not available.November 23, 2010 10:35 pm at 10:35 pm #712098d aMember
Yes, please tell us!November 23, 2010 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #712099ronrsrMember
moderators are born, not appointed.November 23, 2010 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm #712100
my parents knew i would be a moderator before i had my first tooth.
as far as moderator hours they are as follows: CLASSIFIED…Moderation Security Task ForceNovember 23, 2010 11:10 pm at 11:10 pm #712101
Why is it so private? What’s the big deal? We won’t find out who we are from this!November 23, 2010 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #712102
first of all you should already know who you are
secondly i agree with you, i dont see the problem with posting moderator hours, but you know those security guys. i think one of them is a prior tsa security agent.November 23, 2010 11:20 pm at 11:20 pm #712103
Mod 80- LOL to my mistake and LOL to ur response!November 23, 2010 11:23 pm at 11:23 pm #712104
I heard the training to be a mod is extremely rigorous.November 23, 2010 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #712105I can only tryMember
I’ll say something that the moderators are probably too modest to say:
– They do what they do as a chesed.
– There is no pay involved.
– The hours can be unpredictable.
Thanks they should receive for their time and efforts in filtering, editing, approving and (sometimes) explaining isn’t always forthcoming.
As stated elsewhere, I wouldn’t want their job with all that it entails.November 23, 2010 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #712106d aMember
80, now I really feel for you!!!November 24, 2010 12:25 am at 12:25 am #712108
you dont know the half of it
just last year another guy dropped out because he couldnt handle it.
he became a navy seal insteadNovember 24, 2010 12:27 am at 12:27 am #712109
especially the modest partNovember 24, 2010 2:34 am at 2:34 am #712110HaLeiViParticipant
Maybe you can have a blinking icon showing if you are currently moderating.
On another note: don’t you think it’s time to make a Meleva Malka for the coffee room members? If anonymity is an issue we can all march in with bags on our heads. I mean, what are we gonna do when WIY becomes a Chassan, is he not going to invite his CR Chabura and Chavrusos?November 24, 2010 3:40 am at 3:40 am #712111amichaiParticipant
many thanx as always to the mods for doing such a gr8 job on ywn.!!November 24, 2010 4:41 am at 4:41 am #712112
You guys are great. Keep up the great work. Although I do agree it would be helpful to get a grip on the hours around here so we know when to expect our comments not to show up for 1-3 hours.November 24, 2010 5:05 am at 5:05 am #712113Y.W. EditorKeymaster
#1- We are working to see if we can have an option showing when a mod is online.
#2- More mods are being added in the very near future. They are currently in an undisclosed location undergoing tough training.
If you feel you would qualify as a mod, you can always tell us a bit about yourself, and why you are prepared to undergo the training (which by the way, makes IDF training look like a joke!) Use this link http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/contact.phpNovember 24, 2010 5:18 am at 5:18 am #712114
Is it an official paying job or volunteer work?November 24, 2010 1:05 pm at 1:05 pm #712115I can only tryMember

Do you mods share ID tags? I’ve only seen two mods so far – Mod-80 and Mod-37November 24, 2010 4:17 pm at 4:17 pm #712118jhcvivgwryParticipant

Mother in Israel: Didn’t you see the mechitzah inside the CR?Confidentially, I have heard that d/t a world-wide shortage of moderators, YU is adding a PhD program in “moderation”. Entry requirements are extremely rigorous and the required thesis will make Pulitzer Prize winners tremble in their boots.
PS: I shall not apply for this program – even if asked.November 25, 2010 4:44 am at 4:44 am #712135
MODS- When is your busiest time here?
At what point in the day/night do you get the most posts rolling in?November 25, 2010 5:08 am at 5:08 am #712136
You should know that the answer to that is confidential….November 25, 2010 5:11 am at 5:11 am #712137real-briskerMember
