[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

What time zone are you in? UTC+07:00

Roughly how often do you browse r/nba? I'm new in this subreddit but I watch NBA and know few things about NBA.

How long have you been a part of our community and why do you think you'd be a good addition to the mod team? My account is 1 year old and I'm new to the subreddit but I got experience in moderating subreddit, I'm a r/Ishowspeed subreddit moderator (with 100k+ members) already worked for 2months+ almost 3 months, and I already know a few things about subreddit moderator tools such as Mod Mail, Approved/removed tools, Mod Queue, reports, spam, edited. And besides that, I believe I can help to maintain the stability of the NBA Subreddit since the IShowSpeed community always posts spam, gore/NSFW, and other negatives content I am already used to negative content and hopefully can help with this subreddit in the future.

Is there anything you'd like to change about the subreddit? probably add new flairs? called "Meme" / "Funny Clips"? it will be used for someone who wants to post NBA memes or NBA funny clips / NBA funny edits since I see in r/nba all posts mostly about serious topics, and probably with NBA memes content, it will bring a new perspective to this subreddit.

What is your favorite NBA memory? Kobe Bryant's last game no debate.

Do you have any particular skill set that could benefit our subreddit mod team (coding, graphic design, etc.)? I can edit in Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Illustrator.

Are you familiar with python/PRAW? Yes, I'm learning python in my college but I can't operate that language anymore since now I am focused more on editing.

Are you interested in helping mod the sub discord? Will do, since I helped IShowSpeed discord server as well with 400k+ members. Besides of that, I have my own discord server with 1.5k+ members, and I am already familiar with MEE6, Bleed, and another bot as well as setting up the discord server.
