Default Brooke/Madam Mayor's Nominee Q and A thread

In the Moderator Q and A threads, every member is allowed to ask potential moderator candidates questions to more completely gauge how you think they'd act as a mod. They are free to answer or not answer these questions as they like. I would ask that you keep the questions and answers fairly serious, since you're trying to determine if each nominee will be a good fit as a moderator. Now, don't think you can't have any fun with this, just don't completely lose the plot for jokes I'd also ask that you not use these threads to pursue vendettas or cause trouble, as it would be rude to the nominees.
Threads will remain open for half a week, after which a voting thread will be opened.

That said, this is the Q and A thread for Brooke, so get to it.

I'm gonna ask all the nominees this one:

A member who you consider a close friend is being a dick/is violating the rules/being a naughty little piglet - their post/s have been reported, and you are the only mod available to deal with it.

What do?

Hey everyone. I'm going to respond to questions in separate posts so I don't write the most ridiculous tldr and lose it somehow. Also, for scenario questions I'll try to answer based on what I think you would be referring to, but feel free to restate the question if you want a different type of answer.

what are your thoughts on homosexuality
I adore TLS for being a community where everyone can be open about their sexual orientations. It makes me proud to be here.

The scenario is that the poster in question has done nothing wrong (no rules broken). Perhaps what they said is being mocked as "uncool" or whatnot by the group who is doing the mocking. My first reaction would be to publicly post in the thread in question stating something along the lines of "knock it off". If any particular poster was extremely rude, I may give them a private message on the matter and post in question. I'd hand out infractions if it continued after my first warning. I'd be harsher if the mocking was attacking the person themselves compared to just the idea they brought up.

Hibiscus. Helps me relax and sleep. I drink it every night so it's good for even good days.

I'm lucky that the people I consider my friends on TLS are some of the closest I've ever had in my life. As such, I know they'd understand (maybe not right away) if I had to tell them they were being dicks. I know for my close friends the language I might use with them would be less formal in PMs/messaging about these matters than other members. However, at the end of the day, I'd make sure the point got across and I'd take it as far as it would need to for the situation to be under control.

Tone would be a big factor. Like towards any member, a thread that's outright bashing and being a jerk wouldn't be tolerated and I'd ask a fellow mod to close it. I wouldn't ignore it, but I'd explain to the poster that those kind of threads aren't acceptable on TLS. I'd try in a different thread or a new thread to diffuse the situation and talk through it with whoever was having the issues.

EDIT: I feel this would need to be at least a two mod job because anything I did would probably cause more drama for the situation in terms of using mod powers.

If it was a legit complaint and brought up in a more polite and honest tone I'd probably keep it open and again discuss the issues being presented. I hope I never get to the point where I'm completely unapproachable and that public threads need to be made rather than just PMing me about what they think I'm doing wrong. I always try to explain my reasoning for anything, and try to be as logical as possible. But I screw up like everyone else and I'm okay with calm and constructive criticism. In fact, I enjoy it because I always like to improve myself whenever I can.

Like Octo I'm going to ask everyone the same question and see who answers it best, IMO: if you were made mod what's the first thing you'd do?

Demand I run the TLS awards this year since last year's was the start of people demanding I be modded and therefore seems appropriate.

A question for all nominees:

You discover that a member has been talking shit about TLS outside the forum, but continues to visit/post here like nothing happened. Nobody else in TLS seem to be aware about it. How will you deal with it?

What happens off the forum is actually none of staff's concern. Just sayin'.
