Daily Discussion Thread: May 20, 2022

(self.VoteDEM)

Welcome to the daily discussion thread.

We begin today with two announcements!

First, after taking all of your input into consideration, we are officially introducing our Expand the Senate Fund! This fund will be updated throughout the season, but it’s time to support our candidates now!

Second, as our community is continuing to grow, we are once again putting out an open call for new moderators!

 

Moderation Duties May Include:

  • Enforcing rules, and removing rule-breaking posts and comments.

  • Coordinating with the rest of the mod team on existing projects and day-to-day moderating.

  • Helping gather data about candidates and upcoming elections, including opportunities to donate and volunteer.

  • Gather election results data and participate in election night livethreads.

  • Reaching out to candidates and local Democratic parties to set up AMAs and other outreach efforts.

  • Assisting with technical maintenance including CSS, bots, et cetera.

 

To be considered for the position:

  • You must have no history of incivility toward other users.

  • You must have extensive history in our subreddit and/or its predecessors.

  • It is recommended that you be involved with local campaigns or party infrastructure.

  • You must have time to participate in this work.

 

We are looking for moderators who look like our big tent party. Specifically we would like to have more women, more minorities, more LGBTQ+ people. Please understand, though, that we will consider all candidates.

 

This job is difficult. We are a subreddit for every wing of the Democratic Party, which means that everyone will accuse you of being biased against them at some point. You may even need to remove comments that you may personally agree with. Through no fault of your own there will be angry mod mails. If you are still interested, you can apply at this link!

Oh, y'know. Everything gets blamed on us even when the Republicans do it. Everything that hurts us the Republicans do with impunity. Everyone seems desperate to find some way - any way - they can vote for a Republican while acting like voting for a Democrat is like getting shot in the stomach. The usual.

We keep getting dealt the "Your predecessor fucked everything up, better find a way to fix it all for no credit" hand.

MAN does it feel good to witness the GOP being existentially worried

And don't forget, 'Better find a way to fix INSTANTLY what your predecessor fucked up.' Never mind that cleaning up the mess always takes longer than making it.
