Does /mlpol/ still accept janitor applications at this time or anytime within the foreseeable future?
If so, where would one go to apply?

May as well bump with a follow-up question.
Does /mlpol/ actually have a system by which it takes in new staff?

Typically, anons are noted for their interest by posting in threads like this, or by contacting one or more staff in discord.

Ehhhh, not really
>>4754
Typically, anons already vet themselves by their activity in and around the site, or through interaction on discord.

To answer your overall question, inquiry, irritating persistence, etc., the site is not actively seeking an increase of staff.

In the future, please refrain from publicly asking questions you've already had answered several times in several ways on discord, since you already know and/or can contact most of staff already.

At present, mlpol.net has a relatively high number of staff for the number of posts per day. Thus far, responses to spam and unwanted intrusions have been satisfactory. We are not seeking more janitor staff.

Sort of. A new applicant is brought in with the permission of Atlas, asked questions by members of the staff in a sort of Interview, and then a decision is made after every member of staff gives an opinion.

The first large batch of staff hires in the April of 2017 was done in large part by anonymous email applications, as well as by finding anonymous posters on the board that seemed promising. Since then, several applicants have been taken in by members of staff knowing them, with the last hire in the March of 2018. Turnover has been fairly low since a tumultuous first few months.

Well, for the record, I made this thread mostly because there's no actually official statement on the policy page in regards to this topic. I felt like having it answered here would make everyone better off.
I meant for the thread itself to extend beyond my own personal interests.

Thank you very much.

Well, not really. I've been getting a lot of mixed replies by asking around discord these past few months.

So... Where can a site user go to contact staff about prospects to join the moderation team?
I've been part of this community since day one. I've had a lot of free time on my hands in recent months, and feel like I would like to get more involved with the site.
I've tried contacting people through discord, but I feel like I haven't been asking the right people.

The reason for not taking new members at this moment is that the new code isn't set up for it. As it is now the Moderator user part of the code is not completed and creating a user or rights is done via manual edits of database. But I will put in some effort and try to get this completed so we can look at potentially adding janitors and mods.

Thank you for the response. I'll try again some other time.
