Since a number of people wanted clarification on stuff, I'll attempt to do some clarification in this, along with a little of my experience, so that you can make a decision on what you are interested in. :)

First and foremost, I generally don't have issues with genres of sites, as I tend to be well enough versed to know when I need to look something up if I am in need of information on something. But for those who would rather have my likes and dislikes, instead of working with me to make sure I am well enough off with a particular subject, following are some of my liked, hated and indifferent genres.

Liked Genres: Off-Topic/General, Music, Anime, General Entertainment, Board Games, Computer Games, Reading, Astronomy, Online Games, Webmaster, Promotional
Indifferent Genres: Console Games, Role-Playing, Special Needs Forums (All), Sports, Cartoons, Web Hosting, Arts and Crafts, Outdoor Recreational Sports, Tech, Art, Coding, Business Related
Hated Genres: Fan Forums

If your genre is not listed above, I probably don't have an opinion. Anything on the liked or indifferent list, I am willing to work with. If you want clarification on whether or not I'll work on your forum, just send me a link privately.

I have modified and updated the part time admin costs to include the following line, instead of what it said before:
  • IF work time expectations are consistently 30 hours or more, expect to pay more, or to negotiate on a monthly salary.
This way you can pay for my time on having a regular administrator who will visit on a regular basis, without having to worry about over paying unless agreed upon.

Still looking to be hired, regardless of partime or full time. Reminder, the part time items are your basic administration or moderation that you would expect to be doing for your own forum.

Need moderator for Facebook group - and we could combine it with posting on a separate forum.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/thedrumlesson
I haven't been all that active on Facebook for the last couple of years due to some family going all weird on me on a few occasions. I would probably need to know what is expected out of the moderation job on the group, as I haven't actually moderated large groups on facebook, outside of a group I am in.

If I were to do this, what would the forum be that you would want me to post in addition to the moderation of the page?

Yeah, but not sure what forum I want you to post in - in addition to FB thing. I have math, drum lesson, webmaster. What do you like the most?
