As the number of members increases there is more need for more moderators.

First read the guidelines below and if anyone is still interested in becoming a moderator, the send me a personal message (PM).

Guidelines for Moderators

As a moderator of Disturbing Horror Cinema you are expected to perform certain tasks and to follow basic guidelines. We promote a friendly environment where members can freely exchange ideas in a non-offensive manner. Moderators should promote and demonstrate the principles of the forum and are not exempt from the general rules for the forum.

1. As a moderator, you are expected to be active on the forum. This not only includes logging in frequently, but posting and initiating new topics of interest as well, especially in the board(s) that you moderate.

2. As an active moderator, you are expected to help other members by offering knowledge that you have or providing links when necessary. If you are not able to do so, ask the forum administrator.

3. You are expected to conduct yourself - no offensive behavior or arguments.

4. Do not allow negative comments about members. Remove the post and post a comment noting the reason it was deleted in the Moderator Section. Send the original poster a personal message (PM) explaining why the post was removed and noting any applicable forum rules.

5. Notify the forum administrator of any violations that cannot be handled as a moderator and send a warning to the member. In an instance where a member's behavior is so offensive that it requires a ban, contact an administrator.

6. If a thread is started in the wrong board, move the thread to the correct board.

7. If a thread begins to get off-topic, split the thread and all applicable posts into a new thread with an appropriate thread title.

8. Treat all members with respect.

9. Learn and be familiar with all of the forum rules and policies. Moderation actions should only be taken in response to a direct infraction of these rules and for no other reasons. When in doubt, contact a forum administrator for advice on how to handle a situation.

10. All information in the moderator forums and sub-forums is considered CONFIDENTIAL and should not be shared with other members or non-members. If a moderator is found disclosing information from these forums, they will be immediately and permanently IP banned - no questions asked.

11. No moderator should EDIT anyone's posts. If there is a dispute regarding a post please send a personal message (PM) the original poster (OP) to discuss it or remove the post. Posts should only be removed when absolutely necessary - such as when maintaining the integrity of the thread or the forum and it's guidelines/rules.

12. Acting as a moderator of DHC (Disturbing Horror Cinema) is done on a completely voluntary basis. Should you choose to stop moderating or plan to be absent from the forum for an extended period, please send a message to a forum administrator.

13. DOC reserves the right to modify these rules as needed without prior notification and to remove moderator privileges at will.
