    Please mention anything you have already done for the Zerahypt forums and anything you plan and will do as a forum moderator.:
    > I have answered questions in the forum and plan to continue to do so if i'm a mod or not. If I am made a mod I will help to get rid of the spam accounts and try to maintain order in the forum

    How much time are you willing to commit to moderating the forums?:
    > Well i'm on here for 1 to 5 hours everyday (5 hours during the week and 1- 4 hours on the weekends) so that much time

    Explain in detail what you think the forum rules are and who they apply to?
    > I mean i haven't seen them written anywhere but if were to guess:

    post things in the correct sections

    be respectful to others

    don't spam

    Don't Hijack threads

    and i think the rules apply to everyone

    Do you have any experience in moderating any forums? If yes, where?
    > No, But I'd like to add that I have hosted websites for several years now and I know a few things about it. Also I work as a Network Administrator, I enforce rules on the network all the time for a living, I also deal with network security so I think I would be an asset in the war against the spam bots and hackers

    Contact Info (Skype preferably):

    Please message me for this info

    Hypothetical Questions

    1. A member is complaining about something on the Shoutbox. What would you do?
    >Try to figure out what the problem is, maybe get the member to message me instead of cluttering up the shoutbox, and try to resolve this issue

    2. A member is trolling on the forums. Doesn't stop after several warnings. What would you do?
    > If it is possible and the member has been warned several times i'd ban him (maybe temporarily at first)

    3. You have recently banned someone for breaking too many rules. A super moderator unbans them for an unknown reason to you. What would you do?
    >ask the super mod why the member was unbanned and explain why i had banned him and deffer to them weather or not the member needs to be rebanned

    4. A member has been banned recently by yourself or another forum moderator, but keeps on making accounts to spam the Shoutbox with even after you ban 3 or 4 accounts. What do you do?
    >Block his or her IP if that function is available

    5. Two users on the shoutbox are arguing over something and both try to get you on there side. What do you do and how do you settle the fight so it won't spark back up in the future?
    >First of all i don't take a side, I tell them that the shoutbox isn't meant for this and suggest they maybe post a thread if it is Terahypt related or something suitable for the site, and if they continue i ban them

    You seem like you've got lots of talent, but i don't think you have the X Factor. Sorry, DTB1987, but you're going home.

    I don't think it's a good idea to give me autorahtah.
