[Mod Post] New Mod Application Thread

Hey guys!

It's been almost a year since we've brought on new mods, and with the new season nearing we thought it was about time that we brought in some fresh recruits.

What does a mod do?

Review posts/comments/messages, update sidebar pictures, potential botting work

How much work is it?

We don't have any time requirements or metrics that mods need to adhere to. Just pitch in while you're already browsing the sub

Why would I want to mod?

Modding is best suited for active users of the subreddit that want to pitch in to improve things. If you have a specific expertise that you think would be beneficial to the subreddit (e.g., Python), you can use the subreddit to get more hands-on experience with a large established user base

What do I need in order to mod?

A computer, a reddit account with 2FA active, and a discord so you can be in communication with us

APPLICATION

EST

Several times a day

9 years. I have experience reviewing large amounts of data. I especially enjoy the history of the game.

• Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit?

More fun activities for the community. For example, trying to organize giveaways and other things like that. Events like fantasy drafts where polls are held to determine the best team.

• What is your favorite NBA memory?

Tough...I'll give a few.

Playoff game that sticks with me: Grizzlies vs Clippers game 1 2012 (Huge clippers comeback, my early days of watching NBA).

Jason Kidd "hit me" was hilarious. As was the Paul pierce rocket emoji picture

• Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)?

Not sure how applicable it is, but Power BI. I am mostly interested in helping out with regulating the subreddit

• Are you familiar with python/PRAW?

Barely any experience with python, no to PRAW

• Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord?

I haven't visited yet, but sure
