Term XXV Officials Applications!

Term XXV Official Applications

Each position is listed above a text box with the appropriate application within. Please copy the appropriate application, fill it out, and leave it in a comment as a reply to the correct thread. If your application is too long to fit into one comment, please continue in the next comment.

Remember that applications are supposed to be anonymous. We are aware that people, especially older members, are often able to tell who wrote what, but we would still like you to leave out all potentially identifying bits. If you don’t, we will edit your application before voting is posted and you might not be entirely happy with what the well-thought-through text looks like after we’ve applied the modly machete.

(If you want to be super nice to your mods, please also add a text box version of your app so that we don’t have to fiddle with and potentially screw up your html.)

If you are applying for more than one position, you need to apply for each individual position and in SEPARATE comments. There is no limit to the number of positions you may apply for, but no one will be granted more than two positions. If you are applying for more than two positions, it would be great if you let us know your order of preference.

If you have questions about the application process, please leave a comment and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!

Remember, you have to have been a member of HiH for at least two months by the start of January, so if you were sorted after that, you'll need to wait until next term to apply. (The cut-off date for term XXV applications is 1 November.)

Deadline: 27 December 2012 9.00am UTC timezone converter. Voting will go up shortly after that, depending on if we need to wait for more applications.

Some Notes:
Joint applications: As usual, we will accept joint applications, i.e two people sharing one mod spot with 1/2 a position each. We'll only accept joint applicants for posts that require one mod. We also ask that the two of you form a cohesive application that appears as if one person has written it; this includes using singular pronouns.

Team applications: If you have someone you wish to mod with, please indicate at the end of you application who this individual is. We will then include these preferences in the voting post (Example: "App A would like to mod with App C") to indicate this preference while giving members the option to vote for only one of the applicants if they so desire. Your application, however, must be written individually and MUST be able to stand alone!
