    Hello,

    We need help in managing the massive amount of spam and enforcing the rules as the website community forum grows.

    What is involved?
    • Your account will be granted the ability to move threads. We need consistent moving of threads into the proper forum sections. Not only for new posts, but posts going back for months or even years.
    • Your account will be able to use the "spam cleaner" function to delete content and ban newly registered spammer accounts.
    • Moving problematic threads to a hidden section to be reviewed by moderators.
    • You should patrol threads, profiles, and content regularly and hit the "report" button to bring rule-breaking, advertising, and spam to the attention of moderators to enforce.
    • You can approve or disprove avatars based on our guidelines.
    • You can approve or disprove pending new accounts that are flagged as potential spammers.
    • Have direct communication with the moderation team to bring matters to their attention.
    • Your account will be given a special user title, to be determined.
    Is this the same as being a moderator?
    Not exactly, although you will be helping the moderators perform their duties and closely interact with moderators. Based on performance, we might consider "promoting" a small number of these helpers to full moderators after a period of time.

    What are the perks?
    If you aren't subscribed already, you're account will be upgraded to ad-free access with access to the chat-box. You'll have direct communication to the entire NoFap team and your work will help to keep the website online, which is good for all of us.

    To everyone - please report everything that you see:
    The moderators rely on community reports to ensure full platform moderation coverage. If you notice something that breaks the rules, please report it.

    Please do not apply if you can't commit to at least 3 months or more of steady assistance. It takes significant resources to train new people. With that in mind, please be realistic on the "how much time you can devote" question.

    Thank you for your time reading this.

    Can't access the Google link either. But I would gladly join. I'm very active on the forum and constantly look through posts and I would certainly like to help.

    I regularly report spam post and I'm questioning whether I should take this opportunity to give the community something back. How much time do you think it will take per week?

    Edit: Not being serious. See comment below.

    I wonder how many volunteers they are looking for.

    Nofap will need 25 volunteers to commit 30 minutes a day to just spam removing to get near 90hrs a week.

    Hmmmm

    I can do close to 30min a day.

    I believe Alexander was being facetious, we really don't expect people to give that much time. :) We recommend 30-60 minutes minimum a day for this position, however we know that life can get busy, and will be happy to receive any help you can give us. Please apply if you are interested in the position!

    Is that 30 - 60 mins a day of hardcore spam hunting and deleting. Or casual one spam there, another spam here.

    Preferably volunteers will have knowledge on time distortion and can do 90 hours per day.

    But in reality, consistency is better than intensity. We need consistent converge. If you can do 20 minutes of dedicated thread-sorting, spam clean up, and patrolling per day, that is great if you can actually stick to that on a daily basis.

    As a volunteer, it's obviously unpaid. So is it casual helping out?
    I wouldn't want it to feel like it's a "chore" and get feel like my time here is robotic as a result.
    Can it be like picking flowers from a field?
    You enjoy strolling around then you spot it and pluck it out and carry on enjoying?

    Maybe some of the moderators can talk about their experiences.

    I may apply.
    I mean if I don't fit the bill or for whatever reason decide it's not for me, I can simply request to be relieved of duties and stripped of the perks right?
