We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from September - December 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 Wednesday September 22.

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.

4. How does it work?

Is it similar to the juries where you get notifications that pop up while you're logged in, or is it some kind of schedule that needs to be kept?

Thanks.

5. It's pretty simple.

You get a private message letting you know there was a post hidden (only certain ones, though), and then you go to a private forum, and with others, you discuss and attempt to reach consensus as to whether the alert warrants removal from DU or not. Some are pretty easy, like spam content or racist assholes who sneak on here. It is a group of about 30 DU'ers, more than a few you have served before, so you can easily learn the ropes.

Give it a try! It can be fun, but I won't lie, usually, it is pretty cut-n-dried and boring...not like in the good ole days!

39. I recommend it.

It will give you insights into how DU works.

It's important work and a good way to pay back DU.
