2015 is almost upon us! We have: 1.6 million posts on Iwaku. 2800 active accounts. 1900 members active in the past 7 days. 1200 members log in daily. Up to 300+ members online at the same time. An average of 20 new members registering every day. Iwaku has come a LONG way from it's small roots on proboards many many years ago. With this growth, we need VOLUNTEERS AND STAFF MEMBERS to help us keep the forums clean, organized, and safe for everyone to participate in. Without these dedicated people we would be swimming in chaos, with posts in the wrong forums, spammers, assholes, and cranky members. Iwaku could never be where it is today without all of the awesome members that have put in their time and effort to developing our community. ARE YOU A BADASS MEMBER WITH LOTS OF FREE TIME AND A UNDYING LOVE FOR IWAKU? WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO THAT EXTRA MILE IN SHAPING IWAKU'S COMMUNITY? We currently need people for the following tasks: - Basic Forum Moderation. Volunteer mods that would be graveyarding dead threads, deleting spam, moving threads to the correct forum, reporting issues. - Security Moderation. Staff members who handle reported cases, take care of member relations, and provide security for the community. - Content Creators. People that regularly post challenges, exercises, workshops, fulfill requests, or other content on Iwaku. Many of these things you can already do NOW, which is an excellent way to show you are serious about the responsibility! Members that are already contributing to the community will be the ones we're looking for first. If doing more for Iwaku interests you, fill out the BRAND NEW VOLUNTEER AND STAFF APPLICATION. EVERYONE has a chance to become a volunteer or staff member, as long as you are active and have not been involved in any infractions. If you have sent in an application in the past, please fill out the NEW ONE so we have a fresh application on record. Your application stays in our database forever, so even if we can't accept you now, we still may grab you in the future when the timing is right.
