Unofficial Staff Application

Postby FallingSnow » Sat Apr 04, 2015 2:46 am

With a bit of shuffling around in the staff team as many of you have requested, we are looking for additional global moderators to help manage the forum. We have been discussing potential candidates for the open positions, but what we want to know is which of you are actually interested in taking on this job.

Some Job Functions:
  • Moderating the forums! (Of course)
  • Moving and locking topics
  • Warning and banning users
  • Contributing to forum discussions
Basic Requirements:
  • Visiting the forums frequently
  • Speaking politely to users
  • Keeping a positive, constructive attitude
  • Being able to accept criticism
  • Have been around long enough to know generally how the forum is run
  • Have a desire to help improve the community, whether through your ideas or modding ability
  • Ability/willingness to frequently visit the Chat
Think you meet those requirements and are interested in the job? If that be the case, I would like you to send me a PM with your answers to the following questions. Your answers will go on to the rest of the staff to help in our decision-making on the new staff members.
  1. Username:
  2. Length of time in the community:
  3. Any previous modding experience:
  4. How often you visit the SMBX forums:
  5. Generally what time of day you visit the forums (in Eastern time or UTC):
  6. Why you would like this position:
  7. Why you are a good fit for this position:
  8. One thing you want to be changed for the forum:
  9. How you would suggest that change is made:
  10. Describe a situation you have been in that shows the qualities we are looking for in a moderator:

As the topic title says, this is an unofficial application. I asked for permission to handle this out of curiosity of who would be interested in modding here. I'm personally in charge of this topic, and all PMs should be sent to me.
This is not a topic for you guys to suggest who you think should become a moderator. I want those people to take it upon themselves to informally apply.

Done but it's probably poorly done like always... well, it's worth a try.

I sent in my application, and I added Joey's last question to it (speaking of which, is there a way to call a mod on chat or something? Or are the staff always on?).

You can send him an IRC PM, by typing /query <name>
Also, I think that we need more European staff, rather than American, in terms of staff activity.

"I'm not going to be active unless I'm a staff member" is, uh...a good way to not get the job.

Ok, if you'll come back I can see the reasoning. I just don't want an inactive user to become a global mod, such as happened in the past.

I agree with you, Joey.

Eh it just looks weird at face value is all. If you think you can help out, by all means send an app in.

That's not what I meant, but I see how you got there.

If being a staff member is the only reason you have to be active, then you shouldn't be a staff member. Does that make more sense?

I can sort of see where he's coming from, since to be quite honest there isn't much to do around here besides post things about SMBX or partake in Mafia. Most discussions are idle banter anyhow.
I used to be 8bitmushroom but not anymore.

Sounds like a better way to put it Joey, thanks I guess
To be fair to myself though, I've been semi-posting as of lately, as in I'm here, just not here 24/7 like I usually am with most forums
