    MMO-Champion Moderator Recruitment

    Just so you know, we're still looking for mods, especially for class forums! If you're interested in moderating, read the info below and then feel free to apply.

    To those who've applied recently (within the last few weeks), we're still in the process of looking at apps, but we'll have decisions out soon.




    MMO-Champion Forums Moderator Recruitment
    Good news everyone! We're recruiting moderators for the forums again! The amount of users and posts keeps increasing and we reached the point again where we need some help before the trolls take over and play Whack-a-Mod in the new Darkmoon Faire. I know it sounds fun, but I'm going to assume we don't want that.

    Read this if you plan to apply
    • Please please please, do not apply if you're just super bored during the summer break before you go back to school/work. We are not asking for a life-long commitment, but more than 2 weeks would be nice.
    • Do not apply if you only want to wave your banhammer at random people. Moderators are expected to post on the forums they moderate regularly, contribute, keep the sticky posts clean and updated, etc ...
    • You will be expected to be on IRC most of the time to communicate with the rest of the team. This is very important, and you're not getting promoted before you come and say hi. (We can tell you how that works, it's pretty easy)
    • If you apply to moderate a class forum, you will be expected to know how your class works.

    I can do that! What do you need from me?
    • You will need a certain level of activity on forums over the past x days to be eligible to apply on a forum. I'm not going to go into details, but it will make the selection process much easier on our side if we can easily spot who is active and who isn't.
    • A reasonable amount of free time, but probably less than you think. If you're already an active poster (and if we don't screw up, you are) it will probably just 10 more minutes to your daily forum routine.
    • Don't be stupid. Realistically, it will be easy to figure that out by going through your post history, but if you got infracted 5 times over the past month, you're probably out.

    How do I apply?
    • Fill this very simple form.
    • Your application will be listed and admins will review it. It should be slightly faster than in the past, since most of the data we used to gather on applicants is now obtained automatically. (Yes, we're going to stalk your forum life)
    • You will get a PM from our lovely Scrapbot if you're refused or accepted. If you're accepted, more instructions will follow, and cake cookies.

    Important
    • One of the "base" requirements to be eligible to moderate a forum is to have 50 posts in the past 90 days in that forum. A little over 1 post/day for a moderator doesn't seem excessive, and is required to have credible moderators. Bigger forums might require more posts (150 to 300)
    • Do not apply to another forum just because you're not eligible for the one you wanted in the first place.
    • If we only see bad posts in your history you're going to get refused right away. It's not worth trying to be nice after you applied, we automatically skip those posts to check the ones before your application. It's also the same for post activity, if you posted tons of stuff just to meet the criteria you will be instantly refused.
    • Past infractions won't block you from applying or being a mod if they're small infractions. Obviously, if you did something incredibly stupid your chances to be a mod will be greatly lowered.

    You need something like 100 or 200 posts in the forum you apply for before you can apply.

    Do you take requests? Please take a mod that joins our fight and isnt afraid to come out and say "our dps/healing IS bad!"?

    We should get a PvP experienced mod for once. That's something these forums have been lacking imo.

    In football when you are great they make you the striker. If you are too slow they put you in defence. When you really have no idea they make you goalkeeper. And if even that doesn't work out, you become referee. I hope this isn't true for wow with dps/tank/healer/forum mod

    I unfortunately bounce around from class to class trying to be good at them all, but I do love your selection for our current shaman mods, they are hawt!

    At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    If you already come on the forum semi-regularly it isn't really any more time commitment. I spend maybe 5 minutes of every day with my 'moderator hat' on, otherwise I just post like any other poster. Its not like you have to sit there for 6 hours a day refreshing the page with your ban hammer lifted over your head. You just do what you normally do and if you see anything (which you don't often really) then you deal with it.

    Mods are here to make sure users abide by the rules and to keep discussions on the right track and constructive and there is absolutely nothing constructive at all about "I saw a simcraft result that said we're bad therefore we're bad". MMO-champ needs more mods like Radux, Endus and Undefetter.

    OT Good luck with recruitment. I wish I could apply for this post but with the uni's and college's starting back up now my activity is likely to drop down again :< Maybe one day...

    Apparently I'm still short on posts. When it happens, it happens. I check the form every day or so to see if I can apply.

    Its posts on the relevant forum that matter, not overall posts. If you posted 1,500+ times on the General Forums that doesn't give you the ability to apply for the mod forums of the Shaman forum. You have (including this post) 6 posts in the shaman section. You need to show activity in the area you want to apply for first
