One of the things we have to accept is that Reddit is slowly but surely becoming a place of information. Is it always trustworthy and non-toxic? Absolutely not. Reddit is an open forum where users can post anything and everything. Of course, unless you have a moderator.
The League of Legends subreddit has always been a place for well, everything. From Tyler1 clips (and suspensions, and banned accounts) to Patch Notes, esports news, /r/leagueoflegends is a staple for most players. Unfortunately, one of the downfalls of it being an open forum is that bad stuff can sometimes slip through. I’m not going to detail here what kind of “bad stuff” has slipped through in the past. You can use your imagination. These posts are usually stopped by moderators who have all the power on the subreddit. People often strive to become mods of subreddits. They let people know all over the place that they’re more than just a lurker or an active user. It was recently posted that /r/leagueoflegends is on the hunt for new moderators, so this is your chance to join the elite club over on the subreddit.
The subreddit is looking for mods in three different regions but are open to accepting applications from ALL regions. “For this round of applicants, we’ll be placing priority on those from the EU, OCE, and Asia regions,” the post reads. “Not from there? Not a problem! Feel free to apply anyways! We’re always looking for qualified applicants, regardless of region. ”
In order to apply, users must fill out an application that will let you describe your previous moderation experience as well as a time schedule you’d be available and active.
New mods will be picked by early June according to the post. The deadline to apply is on May 14th, 2018, so get applying!
