    If nobody asks me a question I'm going to cry.

    After not participating in citizenship for a while and seemingly writing off the site, why do you care now to partake in this role?

    Are you questioning my loyalty? I have bled for TWC, shed blood for TWC and eaten a burrito with GED for TWC.

    On a more serious note this seems like the type of role that if done well means it shouldn't require a lot of work. Sort of like a bailiff. I think we've all seen the results of how enthusiastic use of this role can end badly.

    If you haven't eaten 10 thousand bananas with GED, you are inherently unable to be beyond reproach. In any case though, I can certainly appreciate a more conservative use of the powers. Would you say your role would have any responsibility to ensure people are exhibiting 'behavior worthy of a citizen', and if so, what would you be looking for that runs against that?

    The job description includes reviewing referrals, so in that sense yes. I see nothing that would empower me to be a glorified hall monitor/morality police and interfere with posts I think fall flat of a citizen standard. I really wouldn't want to take it upon myself to be officer slappy and judge Judy simultaneously. So my official answer is yes and no. As for what I look for in citizen behavior it's hard to say without judging a specific case. The general rule of "don't be an ass" would be my jumping off point with the general advice of "hey bud can you take it down a notch?" When an issue arises Which will be upgraded to a "whoa hold your horses there bud" if it happens again.
