We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from March - June 2021

This discussion thread was locked by EarlG (a host of the Announcements group).

Volunteers who wish to help keep DU running smoothly should consider joining the Malicious Intruder Removal Team (MIR Team). The role of MIR Team members is simple: they are empowered to revoke the posting privileges of people who show up at DU with the intent to disrupt.

Members of the MIR Team are provided with tools to delete spam posted by people who have had their posting privileges revoked, but they are NOT responsible for removing community standards violations, locking threads, or dealing with violations of DU's Terms of Service wherever they may occur.

If you are a DU member with at least six months of membership, at least 1,000 posts, and proof of identity (ie. you are a Star member) then you can apply to be a member of the MIR Team.

How do I apply?

Simple: just post in this thread to let us know that you'd like to give it a try, and you could be selected by the Admins. There is no application form to fill out, and no confidentiality agreement to sign. MIR Team members do not have access to any privileged information about other DU members.

We plan to introduce the new MIR Team on Friday March 12.

NOTE: If you are a current MIR Team member who is eligible to serve next term, please do not state your intentions in this thread. Instead, use the thread in the MIRT forum. Thanks.

1. Count me in please

After a break, I'm ready to help again.
I've been appalled at the number of times I've been called for jury duty here since the election ended. Anything I can do to help, count me in.

23. I'd like to volunteer again.

I'm finally home, and working to improve my walking, though I also have a wheelchair. The fractured ankle is good with a brace on it, but my bad knee decided to act up because of the months of inactivity.

Thanks, EarlG!
