Wardy's thread got me thinking about what people's first mod roles were! A few of you have already said and it's interesting to see where people started (e.g. I'd never have put Bre & Adele together laugh.gif). Does the subforum still exist? Are you still in the role years later? Who were your co-mods etc?

My first role was Katy Perry in Jan 2015 so I've been there for almost three years now I guess, it's probably the mod role I put the least effort in which is a bit naughty but she did lose me a bit with the Witness era. That was the only forum I moderated for over two years until this year when I got the Movies job in Feb, Bey in August and Nicki when it was created in September.

My co-mods had all stayed the same until Joseph left us last month to move on to bigger and better things cry.gif laugh.gif

Pop I think, it must have been, I think I got reality not long after but it definitely was pop first! I applied for loads before that lmao I was one of those who'd apply for basically anything, and then got given pop as I think I was one of the next choices when whoever got it (Iz and Johnkm I think who became GMs).

Dance forum, which must be about 4 years ago now when I was given the role. I was very happy to get that one too because at the time the current mods weren't very active and I felt like I could revive it a bit. There was no application process I was just asked if I wanted it.

My first mod role was the position I still retain in The Lounge! That happened on 2nd January 2016 (I will never forget that date as it was the same day that Brade became a thing) a couple of months after Lee was no longer a Lounge mod. The team aside from me was Bal, Brť, Rob and Silas when I was first instated so a lot more male dominated than it is now!

Then my other mod role is for the Robbie Williams AF, it was an in-joke between me and Cameron for a while that we'd get added as Robbie mods one day, then Iz actually added us as mods after the AF had no mods at all and none of the regulars were interested in modding laugh.gif goals x

It's crazy to think that some of these AFs actually existed laugh.gif Were they as active as the AFs of today? I just can't imagine Aerosmith and MCR appealing much to the demographic of Buzzjack nowadays laugh.gif

We used to have an actual Rock forum too alongside the Indie forum before they got merged, so clearly there was some kind of fanbase for that sort of thing in the beginning.

This, they say to start from the bottom for managerial roles, but that clearly wasn’t so in my case kink.gif It took me a while to get my head around everything (still surprised just how much I can see/do after getting so used to just being a member!) but I think I like it x

I think I applied to be a Lounge Mod a few times and for some reason Pop unsure.gif to no avail, as they were terrible (I’m not sure why I decided to remind myself of them by looking for those threads)

(There used to be a Coldplay forum too, I woulda been so on that :’()

I think mine was Indie, Rock and Alternative, I think I became a P!nk mod after that but I'm not sure, both came at around the same time iirc

I absolutely loved those old AFs. Aerosmith wasn't that active if I remember correctly. Bon Jovi was really active and fun though. I had a lot more time back then to put a lot of effort into those forums laugh.gif

Katy Perry was my first role too, and I became mods of both Girls Aloud and One Direction before I got my first main forum mod role in Personal Charts which I think came about in the first half of 2014. UK Charts came in August/September 2015, plus the Justin Bieber AF as of earlier this year, and now, well, the entire site x

I think the only moderator applications Iíve ever submitted are for the Personal Charts forum (though in hindsight I think itís probably not best suited for me) and when Lotti said they wanted new applicants for the Dua Lipa forum. I could have applied for other opportunities, such as BJSC, but those didnít appeal and I felt I didnít have enough experience. Perhaps the retro forum would appeal, but once I finish the weekly Now reviews which would be Summer 2018 at the current schedule, then I may end up not visiting the retro forum again. sad.gif

My first was in the Lily Allen AF! I followed it shortly after with Reality TV (I think in like 2008) where I stayed until the entertainment shake up a few years ago. BJSC followed early in 2009 and I think thatís the one Iíve held the longest.

Lounge Mod was my first and indeed only sub forum role - I remember being really surprised when I was asked to do it... and then from there on in I was gradually asked to do more and more! Until one day I was asked to do less again haha! biggrin.gif
