New Moderators Wanted
« Topic Start: May 12, 2012, 06:07:29 PM »
We are once again looking for more moderators to help keep things running smoothly. If you think you can help, reply to this thread with a list of boards you think you would like to moderate. Either a whole set (Locals) or just one (I.e. Beluaterra, etc.)

Feel free to include any specific info as to why you think you would make a good moderator.
If at first you don't succeed, don't take up skydiving.

Also, if you are currently moderating a board, please reply here if you are interested in continuing to moderate that board. Some of our moderators have gone MIA, and we would like to remove the inactive ones.

I would be willing to moderate the Dwilight board.

I'm on here everyday, and sometimes don't have much else to do. I'd be a good moderator because I'd make sure that any flaming and bashing of other players on the forum would be cut out and removed.

I would like to moderate the East Continent board.

I am usually on 4-5 hours a day. I will try my best to stop people from trolling and flaming.

I currently have the AT board, along with LilWolf.  If anyone is dying to take my spot, they can have it.  Otherwise, I'll keep on keepin' on.

To be honest you should consider revamping the whole moderation system while you're at it. Taking care of a single sub-board doesn't give you much to do.

What I'd suggest is splitting the entire forum among 3-4 moderator groups and then lump interested people under them with the ability to moderate all the boards that belong to that group(so you'd have, say, a group that moderates all the island boards and general discussion). You'd need less people involved, though they might need to have a bit more dedication to the job(not a bad thing necessarily).

I don't know about the other island boards, but Dwilight alone could take two moderators.

Yes, LilWolf, you're right. Individual board mods is probably overkill for most boards. Splitting at the top level would probably work. But we can work that out later. We really need more volunteers.

I can moderate anywhere that's needed, but I would prefer the general board or a local board.

I am interested in moderating the Dwilight board, but am willing to moderate any boards that are needed.

1. Dwilight is my Favorite island
2. I am online a lot and a dedicated BM player.
3. I would do a good job and not go inactive.

I'm happy to continue with moderating the boards I'm currently moderating. I wouldn't mind moderating some other boards as well, just pair me up with someone who is more active.

It bothers me when someone starts attacking someone else on the forums, the ZumaGM and Glamuring for example. I want to put a stop to that sort of behavior.

I would like to find about 3 more global moderators.

And I think moderators should more strictly delete postings that are nothing but back-and-forth between two players. Stuff that nobody but the people involved cares about shouldn't be on the forum.

Could each of you provide more information on why you want to be a global mod and your background?

i.e. as stated in the OP
The above is accurate 25% of the time, truthful 50% of the time, and facetious 100% of the time.
