    Cheetosdust, Dec 14, 2018 :

    Hello community,

    Caretaker of common sense, the moderation team is a vital part of the forums we all love and cherish so much. More than just instigators between the community and the OnePlus team, many times they are also matriarchs and patriarchs of this family, keeping an eye on the rest of us while making sure we don’t go overboard.

    You probably already know their usernames by heart, but maybe you always had a particular question to ask; maybe you always thought “I wonder if…” when you were reminiscing about how the team work or how a moderator works as part of said team. Well, this thread was created exactly for that.

    In honor of OnePlus' fifth anniversary, the mod team is coming together for an AMA. If you are interested, now it’s the time to ask something to the members of the moderation team. Leave a question below, and the following members of the mod team will start answering them live on Sunday, December 16, at 7PM CET (1PM EST/11:30PM IST).

    @Funk Wizard
    @Maximus Decimus Meridius
    @PVS Kharoud

    Don’t see the name of your favorite mod on this list? Go ahead and tag them in your question – they will answer when they have time in their schedule. Please be respectful and keep in mind that the mod team does not work for OnePlus. They are dedicating some of their free time to make this possible. They may share their opinions or pass along technical questions to the OnePlus team if it’s out of their scope.

    I know I can count on all of you to make this a great thread, so let’s have some fun and get to know the team a little bit better.

    How the hell do you cope? Does it sometimes feel like you are fighting a losing battle trying to keep the forum straight?

    I have one question. Why my favorite moderator from Oneplus is last on that list? :mad:

    Thats alphabetist*!!!. o_O

    Now a bit more serious, I bet this will be fun. :) But just one heads up, I don't want anyone to bring a pie to this party, we have had more than enough of that lately. :sweat:

    *I know, its a lame attempt to make a alphabet racist joke. :sweatsmile:

    You asked almost all questions I thought of.

    My remaining question is this.
    To all the mods: which was the most funniest thread or conversation you have read on this forum. (not counting the recent crowd favourite, the pen is thread) :p

    GopalB., Dec 14, 2018 :

    thanks my friend for this thread:)

    to the mods:
    How do you organize the work? You all come from different countries, including time zones. Does everyone have his or her own fixed field of activity? Example: Request to close threads or clean threads. Is there a fixed team of mods who take care of that?:)
    Thanks for being here and take care of the forum:)
