Mod Request/Info

Post  Adminassassin on Sun Mar 28, 2010 1:51 am

Inevitably, we will be asked if we need moderators or "can i be a mod?"

You may post here if interested but keep the following in mind:

1) New users will not be made mods.
2) There will be a low mod to user ratio
3) Being a mod is a responsibility and misuse of power will not be taken kindly.

Being that I am the administrator of another site (see my profile) with similar rules (similar being that my site has more, but we have all that you have listed,) I believe that I have the necessary skills to moderate and keep the peace in your forums while still keeping the respect and friendship of the users. I have learned in previous experience to moderate without discrimination, judgment, or grudges, and to keep personal relationships with users from clouding my decisions in a case in which rules are broken (by this, I mean playing favorites, or letting a friend get by with a broken rule). I believe that not only is this a hard quality to find, but it is also a necessity for a moderator of any kind of site.

I'm a admin of two forums (Which failed) and a moderater of Video-Game-Info Forums.

Note that this is not an request to become an moderater, just wanted to get something out of the way in case you consider me as a mod.

If you made me a moderator, I'd question your sanity.

...Are any of you insane, btw? Razz

No, but I used to go a little nuts about Nintendo from late 2008-August, 2009, but I've calmed down and is planning to get an PS3. Nintendo is still my favorite company, thought.

I can keep a level head when it comes to arguments (I can be surprisingly mature), and I've been a moderator on other forums (Such as the ill-fated PSLife). This is all I have to say really about my request to become a moderator.

And the fact that I have read through 2 and 1/3 of your story. Just saying... Razz

Ah what the hey.

Post  Donth8 on Sun Apr 04, 2010 2:45 am

I'm interested. I wanna be the Law like Judge Dred. cheers
Also define 'new' users. Like a member since *insert date here*?

Also I know how to properly apply for moderator. Wink

Edit: We have 16 members at the moment and if I remember correctly, you said you will start hiring when we reach 30 so we're half way there.

COPIED FROM UPDATES:

Also, Chatbox is up on the frontpage as a trial thing. If it's successful and we get a few more members, then I will be looking for 1-2 Chat Moderators, which are seperate from Moderators.

I will have a formal applicationperiod for 2 Chat mods in May and additional possible positions in June. But this all depends on how many members we get. These numbers could go up.

Ok cool. I'm interested. I'll look forward to the Chat mod applications next month

Also I know that the Forum mods application is already up but when are you actually accepting?

I'm thinking that the Chat Mod Application process will be
May 1st through the 7th

and Forum Mod Application process will be
May 21st through May 31st

As stated before, this may change depending on site needs (aka if we get lots of members.)

Today added News section and made Terra moderator of that area only. This is so that we can control the new topics in News while still letting users comment.

Ignore the dates I listed below. I will update soon with dates for Chat Mod application process.

An additional News Mod would be a good idea imo. I have other stuff to do so I can only really get one news article posted a day normally unless I have absolutely nothing else going on.

Only Forum Mods' names appear in blue. Chat mods are seperate.
