Say hello to our new MIR Team!

The job of the Malicious Intruder Removal Team is to ban people who join DU with the intent to disrupt. MIR Team members are volunteers, and they serve for a three-month term.

If you are a member of the MIR Team, you should now have access to the access-restricted Malicious Intruder Removal Forum. It should appear as a red folder on your Forums & Groups page, and in the left column of any page (if you view DU in "Standard" mode). New MIRT members (and veterans who need a refresher) should check out the "How To" threads pinned to the top of the MIRT forum.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered! Volunteers were selected on a first-come-first-served basis.

The MIR Team, September - December 2021

19. Welcome aboard, new MIRTers, and welcome back, returnees!

I just finished my first term on MIRT, and I can tell you newbies that you are going to learn an amazing amount about what goes on here and feel a part of DU in a whole new way!

If you are anything like me, you may be a little confused in the beginning, as there is tons to learn. You'll pick up a lot just from following the discussions on the MIRT board, but don't hesitate to ask questions if you don't understand something. Everybody was new once, and everybody remembers what that was like. I found long time team members to be unfailingly warm and helpful and I was never made to feel like I was being stupid or a pest.

I can seen from EarlG's post that the new team includes a lot of extremely knowledgeable and experienced members, so I know DU will be in good hands. Good luck, everybody!

21. Very nice people, diligent, hardworking. Unless one does it, one cannot imagine...

...between the trolls, the spammers, and some very nutty obsessives, how much these teams do to keep DU functioning unobstructed.
