As of September 26, 2014
Thank you for your interest in moderating a forum on the brand-new INTIX website forums. INTIX is looking for a few passionate and dedicated members who would like to become part of our team of forum moderators. We are looking for members with an INTIX history, who show maturity, frequent site access, and a willingness to work hard, without issues of ego. We want people who are patient, caring and compassionate. The ideal moderator is an individual that is high energy, patient, willing to teach and explain our guidelines with a kind demeanor.
A moderator represents INTIX and plays a vital role in establishing the tenor of a forum and guiding its conduct. The main function of a moderator is to promote interaction among the members of a forum. The moderator introduces the participants to each other and keeps updating the forum on new members. The members of a forum convene to discuss specific topics and it is the duty of the moderator to encourage lively debate and discussion that is enriching to all participants. It is the responsibility of moderators and members to recruit new forum members. If you don't know a lot of people, you can contribute in the brainstorming process. If you do know people, we are counting on you to spread the word about INTIX. The moderator also answers questions that may arise in the course of the discussion.
The moderator ensures the forum is free from guideline violations and clutter. We will see spam, irritable people flaming others, people trying to use the site to sell their products, and much more. On the new INTIX forums, you will welcome new members, remove spam posts, edit and move posts to the right forums, keep the forum active by engaging in various discussions, and provide feedback to the administration and board.
It is the responsibility of a moderator to maintain order during discussions and to see to it that all participants behave with courtesy. We want members to enjoy a much comfortable and positive atmosphere while here socializing, learning and contributing.
