We are looking for moderators, as before our requirements are that the applicant should be completely committed t freedom of speech and be fair and accept that in many situations the pride they feel in their country will have to be set aside and not react to negative views expressed by individuals towards Turkey.
Sense of humor helps too.
A pplicant will NOT moderate Greek members, unless in emergency situations like someone embedding or linking porn.

I think we will need to have more than one Turkish mod considering the overwhelming number of Turkish posters in here. I think we double the number of grik posters, but griks have two moderators already.
Would the management agree to have two Turkish mods?

"Moderator for only Turkish members, this is against the principle of equality. If someone is sufficient enough to moderate a certain group, he must be sufficent enough to moderate all.
Regarding above reason I condemn this demand."
Every novice moderator of the G/T team is expected to refrain from moderating the other side unless it's an emergency situation, until he gets the hang of it. With time, he will be given full permission.
Stay focused on the question, we are asking for a moderator not a group leader, so membership votes or popularity of the candidate will not be taken into consideration. We are asking members that are interested, then we'll shuffle through the volunteers and pick one or maybe two.
Regarding the number of moderators, I have strongly suggested that we get more than one. Tolga is always free to return but aside from that, we need more hands, we're very short on Turkish members in the management. Right now there's Sheogorath (admin for Indian forum) and Destan (honorary mod for graphics) but neither one is part of the G/T team. We have 3 Greek mods so we definitely need 1-2 Turkish ones.
Keep in mind that being a mod in WAFF is above everything a responsibility and an obligation, not a priviledge. Of course you're human and won't be expected to login here all the time, nobody will overwork you, but if you think that it's a chance to smite down the other side with warnings and get them banned, that's a sign of bias and you won't last long in the management. There are special WAFF rules for members of the management and number 1 of them is that you leave your nationality pride at the door when entering the team. You can always take part in any debate you like, at the expense of your moderating power for said thread (unless it's an extremely urgent thing, like having to remove an image of porn).
On the other hand, you'll get access to the Mods forum (not anything special to see in there, just Greekbono getting high on apple-juice to bench-press that 5 kg bar and me and Coalde hitting on lesbians).
As of now, I hereby declare the following new rules for any novice moderator. He is expected to wake up at 5 o'clock each morning, do 300 push-ups, run around in the rain, fetch me my breakfast and for every new girlfriend of his, I get to try her out first .
Anyway, the once interested post it here, along with an e-mail we can reach you at (if you don't want to do it in public, e-mail me at my WAFF mail, firstname.lastname@example.org). You'll be notified shortly.
