    Moderator applications now open

    Post by FexDS on Sun Mar 18, 2012 9:31 pm

    Hello everyone

    As the community continues to grow, we are looking for new moderators to help us maintain this civil and friendly.

    To apply to be a moderator you must first fulfill the following conditions:

    1. Be over 18 years of age. (this is not negotiable)
    2. Have had more than 100 forum posts on wikispaces/here or have high PSBoards reputation
    3. Have no warnings or outstanding issues with current moderators.

    If you fulfill the above, then please answer these questions in a PM to me and Emergence:


    • What do you think you would contribute to the moderating team?
    • What do you think your number 1 job as a mod is?
    • Do you speak and write fluently in any language other than English?
    • What hours do you generally post (Pacific Time)?
    • What kind of experiences do you have in working in a team environment?
    • Name one thing about the boards that you would change, if you could.
    • Have you ever moderated a forum or chat arena before? If so, describe your experiences.
    • Have you ever applied to moderate on this forum before? If so, when?
    • Are you over 18 years old?

    Scenario questions:


    • You have banned someone, and another moderator lifts the ban before the time you set has elapsed. What do you do?
    • A friend of yours also posts on the boards and posts something just skirting the rules. You check his admin notes and discover that he's been warned repeatedly about this same issue in the past. What is your response?
    • A friend comes to you complaining that he has been banned by another moderator, and wants you to find out why. Upon further investigation, you discover that you believe the ban is unjustified. How do you handle that?
    • A poster makes a post with a minor language violation, bypassing the language filter, and you have to edit it and give him a warning. Please post the contents of that warning:
    • You find a player using the forum handle “Wikisucksass”. If you sent the player a private message regarding this handle, what would you say, and what actions would you take?

    *Obligatory lolcat to make serious post not so serious*

    I am most certainly interested in becoming a moderator for the site. However, I recognize that being a moderator is likely much more work than I can currently imagine. I will begin working on an application asap while I also think of whether I can manage the time to fulfill the duties of a moderator.

    Hope that whoever gets picked fulfills the role well happy.

    Oooh fun, the community here has expanded quite a bit. I'll debate if I should send it in, I'm not sure if I'll make a good mod or not. Also I'd probably lose my title, which I don't want even though I've been quite lazy recently! (I just finished ME1, going to give 2 a try soon!)

    My feelings are that I may jump the gun on a small issue and explode it into something bigger, I may try to be rational and logical most of the time, but by darnit I'm human and even I screw up when I haven't had my Sunkist.

    I think everyone has their odd moments Whknight, I think that as long as you made an edit or a new post that sorted out your last post it would be okay.

    Knight you should give it a try, don't be so nervous. I'm sure the other moderators are humans and have emotions as well, aside from Emergence who is a golden robot that attempts to simulate the illogical thought patterns we consider, "human."

    I think frankly the more abundance of applicants the better. The Collective Hive Mind I'm sure would rather have 20 or so to pick through than just 2 or 3 and be left with almost no option.

    Alright let's check here, we have the guy who seems a little too interested in horses applying, and Mel Gibson....Ug...Alright Mel, I guess you can come with us. But I swear if I smell booze you're off the force!

    EDIT: By the way I just remembered there are people here who like Ponies, I wasn't meaning to offend them. I meant something much darker. :oops:
