Apply to Attend the CivilServant Community Research Summit, Jan 27-28
Are you a reddit moderator whose community wants to try new moderation ideas? Are you interested in testing the effects of those ideas with your communities? CivilServant is holding our first Community Research Summit on Jan 27-28 at the MIT Media Lab in Boston, and we want you to be there!

Thanks to our funders, we can cover the costs of several US-based moderators to travel to the summit. If you're interested, please apply by December 15th. We'll follow up with you and make our final decisions soon after.

Moderation ideas you and your communities are interested to test together with CivilServant *
The CivilServant project focuses on testing the outcomes of moderation ideas. So far, we've tested the effects of different kinds announcements, the effect of hiding downvotes, and we're working on a new study to test the effects of temporary versus permanent bans. What moderation ideas or questions is your community interested to explore?
How do big decisions get made in your subreddit? *
Tell us more about how ideas get adopted in your community, so we can understand more about what it might mean to work together. There's no wrong answer to this question; we know that community decision-making varies widely!
Where are you physically based? *
We are able to cover the costs of US-based moderators, but even if you're not US-based, we want to hear from you! We might not be able to get you to MIT, but we can definitely discuss working together.
