Modnouncement!

In an intense flurry of activity, every active mod graded every application. We got about 45 applications this time around.

When the names on those applications were revealed to us, these were the folks who scored the highest:

Auberon
Dragonfire
KeKe (used to go by Kelseylou until today!)
Libertine
MadRatBird
Sanne

For most of you, there will be some familiar faces on this list -- all of these people have been long-time members who have been active and helpful in the community for many years. Without even knowing who they were, their applications demonstrated deep thoughtfulness, attention to detail, experience, and care with bias. Their answers showed clearly how much they have absorbed (and helped to foster!) the culture that the RPR tries to promote.

Given the expansion of membership and the related increase in site activity, the mod team decided that rather than bringing in one or two new mods, we would stretch ourselves and grow fast so that we can keep up with the community's growing needs. We were so pleased when they all accepted an offer to join the mod team, allowing us to double our team size!

That said, we're still cautious of expanding too quickly -- the last thing we want is to throw new mods into the thick of it without proper training and support. Therefore, these folks will be becoming active in smaller pairs, so there's not too much "crowding" in any one portion of the training.

These days, new mods spend about five weeks in training (and that goes for returning mods, too!) so that they are up to date on all our rules and their nuances, as well as the philosophy of the mod team and how we work together to decide on cases that exist in those "grey areas" outside of absolutely clear-cut rules.

I am thrilled to welcome such a talented group of people to our team, and I hope you will join me in supporting them as they find their sea legs :)

Thank you to everyone who applied. Our application process is a challenging one, requiring people to confront a range of clear-as-mud scenarios and try to navigate their way through before the benefit of a mod handbook and formal training. It was clear how much time and thought went in to your applications, and I am just absolutely chuffed that so many of you were willing to volunteer your time for our community. <3
