message 2: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany I'd love to be one!

1. I'm quite good at being a moderator. I like it, and I'm very talkative. People (usually) like me and I (usually) like people.

2. I generally don't really modify the ideas of groups very much. I work with what a group already has to make everything work.

3. Honestly, whatever you think I will be good at.

4. Yes. I am a moderator of YA Readers and More. I do a bit of everything, but I focus on the games.

5. Yes. I'm 16, pushing 17.


☀︎El In Oz☀︎ (elinoz) 1. It seems like a fun job and it’s nice to interact with ppl
2. Not sure, I like hearing other ppl’s ideas and adding onto them, if that makes sense
3. Book topics and trivia plus favourites, stuff like that
4. No
5. Yes!


Maddie (Inking & Thinking) Thanks guys for applying!!! I’ll let you know by tomorrow.

Sanna Anderson (sanna_elizabeth_anderson) | -11 comments 1. It has always interested me, and I would love to bring new ideas to the group.
2. I think that adding more book discussions woulud be a good idea. It could about a series or a stand alone. But, if I was able to brainstorm with someone else, I think I could add more!
3. I'd be intersted in helping with Buddy Reads and Challenges.
4. I have never been a moderator before, but I have seen what it requires by seeing what other moderators have done in some other groups I am in.
5. Yep!

Thank you so much for allowing this opportunity!
-S. Anderson


Maddie (Inking & Thinking) Thanks for applying!! I’ll let you know by tomorrow.

Joyce | 2030 comments Hi Bookduck|Maddie! (I'm happy you decided to create a new group! I recognized you from the other Goodreads group. I'm excited to be part of this one and I'm wishing it the best :)
1. Why do you want to be a moderator?
I truly believe one of my greatest qualities is organization. So, I would love to put that to use! Plus, add that to my passion of books <3 How can I pass this up xD
2. What new ideas will you bring to the group?
I have some great bookish games I could recommend. As well, I have some ideas on how to make buddy reads or BOTM run more smoothly :)
3. What topics would you want to focus on?
I'm would be really happy to be honest to work on any of these topics, but maybe buddy reads? :P
4. Have you been a moderator before? If so, how what did you do in that group?
Nope I've never been a moderator before, but I would love too! I would say I'm pretty active as a member on the group
5. Are you 13 years or older?
Yes I am! I'm 21 turning 22 soon xD (hope that's not to old!!)

3. Here are my top three picks!
a. Games Creator

message 19: by Lillyyy (last edited Oct 11, 2020 11:16PM) (new)

Lillyyy | 253 comments Great job on 150 members and thank you for this opportunity!

1. I want to be a moderator because I love organizing things, I love helping and interacting with people, I love this group and this community where everybody knows everybody and I think it'd be fun.

2. I have lots of ideas for games and about yous and challenges that I think this group would love. I have so many ideas that I can bring to this group and make happen.

3. I do a lot of work in challenges, it's what I do most, and best, so my top pick is Challenge Coordinator. My second pick would be the Social Media Manager. I can promote the group in Goodreads, I can also run an Instagram for it which I would make sure was updated frequently and with important details. I would love to write the newsletters, and I think that I could organize and create cool banners and art every once and while to freshen things up. Actually, I think Challenge Coordinator and Social Media Manager are tied, I'd love to do both of them. My third pick is Discussions Major, there are a lot of fun things that could be added to this group that I can do, and I have quite a few ideas.

4. I am a moderator for The Midnight Readers, I've been a mod there since the beginning of May. We currently have 560 members.

5. No I am not, I feel like I'm not going to be able to moderate because you have an age limit, but I thought I would try anyways because this group is wonderful and it has a lot of potential. On a side note, I definitely have the maturity of somebody older than 13. I wanted to add that because it might be maturity that you're looking for, but it also might not be.

Thanks again, you guys! I love watching this group grow!


message 20: by katie ❀ (new)

katie ❀ (whisperngpages) Congrats on reaching 150 members!

1. I am a huge book nerd (like everyone else), and I love discussing them with others. This group is one of the groups I'm most active on, and I just love the community. I would love to be a mod because this group is so connected, and we talk about all kinds of things, and because of that, I get to know other people well. I want other people to feel the same way.

2. Adding some more games, and creating some new discussions about new/coming soon books, so we can expand our reading range and find out about new books. I could also think up a few more challenge and readathon ideas.

My top pick would be Challenge Coordinator because I have a lot of experience in organizing events and readathons. My second pick would be Social Media Manager because I have worked with graphic designing and social media a lot. I run the YA Book Club Instagram and I created the logo for The Flashlight Readers. My third choice of roles would be BOTM Head because I have some ideas on how to make the choosing of the BOTMs run smoother.

3. I could help out wherever; I know all the workings of a Goodreads group. I prefer working on challenges, games, and BOTMs.

4. Yes, I am a moderator for several other groups, including The Flashlight Readers and The Midnight Readers. In The Flashlight Readers, I focused on readathon and challenge ideas. In The Midnight Readers, I worked with others to think of readathon prompts and handle sign-ups for challenges.

5. Yes, I am.

Thank you for your consideration!

message 36: by Lillyyy (new)

Lillyyy | 253 comments If you go to the mods page there a thing next to each mod's name that says "change title". If you click on that you can change your title. But I guess somebody already gave you a title because your's says Polls Manager


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

1. I want to be a moderator because I am very active in this group and it's become a great place for me to discuss books. I'd love to help expand this group and bring new people to it.

2. I have a lot of ideas for discussions and games. I would be very frequent in posting discussions that I think people would be active in.

3. My top three choices are: BOTM head, because I'm head of BOTM in the ranters and reviewers group which I'm a moderator for, and it's the job I enjoy the most. Next, I'd like to be a games creator because as I said, I have a lot of ideas I think people would enjoy. Lastly, I've created polls before and I think I could be a good poll manager.

4. I'm currently a moderator for the Ranters and Reviewers group, the Midnight Readers group, and the Lit Addicts group. I've done a lot of things for the first two groups in the past month or so, including organizing twin reads, readathon points, and BOTMs.

5. I am not 13 years old yet, but I certainly have the maturity to be. You might not be accepting applications because of the number of moderators you have, but I thought I'd give it a chance because of how much I like this group. Thanks for considering!
