So, sometimes this month Rabana asked me If I had ever considered being a mod here.
To be honest, I've had my share of modding, and I know it can become a source of negative crap in your life if you get involved too much. So my initial reaction was "No Way, please shoot me now".
But then, I woke up 5 days in a row to a forum in a fucked up state, and no mod awake in my timezone, and all I could do about it was close my browser and come back online 8 hours later hoping I wouldn't hurt my eyes again.
So I thought to myself, between having to pretend nothing is wrong, and actually being able to do something about it, that's probably the better option.
Think of it, that's pretty much the reason I took on class rep duties back in HS and college... At least you're sure the job gets done, rather than hoping some other dude won't forget to tell you about assignements and surprise tests.
So, I've only been actively posting for a month or so, and I would usually not think of myself as mod material, but I don't think being here another 6 months will change the way people think of me.
There is also that mod-less timezone that needs to be fixed, with or without me.
As Rabana put it: stuff that needs deleting, needs deleting.
I'm online a lot, because my job makes me commute a lot, and my iPad is my mobile office.
For those who don't know me at all, i'm Cedryc, I'm 33, from Belgium. Living in Japan for the last 8-9 years. My mom is from the states, where I've lived on and off for a few years.
My first language is French. I work mostly as a Holistic Healer in Tokyo, but I still have a few language students from my early days here, and I occasionally translate stuff freelance.
I feel that the variety is good for me (if you're a Gemini, clap your hands)
My dad is an integrated martial art instructor, currently focusing on Therapeutical Taichi and Chikung for old people. I have a decent background in internal Chinese styles, a licence in shiatsu, and about 10 years of professional experience in subtle energies based "healing".
I believe I can be a good asset for forum sections falling within my workline, energy, healing, spiritual advancement, mediation etc.
More than anything, I feel attracted to this forum despite the ongoing social drama, and my guts tell me this is a place I need to be this year. So, why not do my part?
I'm posting this after having received the green light for candidacy from Daniel.
And if understand correctly, modding only happens when every single mod agrees, on top of Daniel, and public review.
I know there are talks of mod corruption and stuff going on... Well, I just got here... I haven't hurt anyone, or deleted anything unfairly or whatever, I also wasn't active back in the days veterans and mods had whatever issues that still influence people's interactions today, so my slate is clean with everybody.
As a mod, I basically would like to help keeping the forum clean of offensive stuff, be it pics, vids, or comments, sexually offensive in nature, or just purely and casually rude, made by people who seem to think it's okay to go around calling other "retards", while talking about indigo frequencies.
I do believe this is a good community, with a huge potential, loads of useful data, and worth working for.
I do understand that this forum was built for indigos, but I also believe that "indigo" being by definition a spiritual/new age term, the forum shouldn't be limited to indigo contents, but should offer a place for everyone to grow, based on the very vibrations indigos have been bringing to the planet in preparation for what happens next.
