We are now accepting new volunteers to serve on the MIR Team from April - July 2020

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, April 1.

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.

32. I worked two terms on the MIR Team

You can do what you can when you can.

Some members were there a lot, others as their life permitted.

30. I'm really not very technically proficient.

Id like to help, not sure how helpful Id be. I know there are trolls and bots here. Seems like other people can spot them but they have to be pretty blatant for me to realize.
