GET READY! Hello, my precious snowflakes! I know what you're all thinking: "HOLY HELL, WHO IS THIS PERSON?!" Don't worry your pretty little heads about that, because it’s time for MOD APPLICATIONS! That’s right, it’s time to recruit some fresh blood from the lot of you, and drink it to gain everlasting youth!!! Or, you know, to get more mods and improve the forum. Whatever works for you. If you've replied in the past and didn't make it, you should definitely give it another go, so long as you meet the following: Requirements for becoming a mod. If you do not meet any single one of these requirements at the time you're reading this, please do not apply (this list has been around for ages, and it still applies, but I have made some edits): You must never, ever use txt-tlk. If you regularly use the word "u" or "ur", the word "your" in place of "you're", if you rarely use punctuation or capital letters, or if you have poor English language skills in general, your application won't be considered and may not even be read at all. Moderators need to be clear and well-spoken, and using txt-tlk often gives the impression that the typist is extremely young/immature. You must have an excellent history here. If you're a new Imps member, we cannot consider you. If you have recent warnings, it's also not likely we'll consider you. In addition, we'll look at the past six months or so of your history to see your posting style, if you're quick to anger, if you're a natural problem solver, etc. You must have a good reputation with the community. If you can't name five forum members who would want you to be a moderator, work on becoming more well-known and try again next time. If most of the mods don't immediately recognize your name, you probably won't be considered. This one is always slightly looser if you have an absolutely stellar application, but it's usually a good place to start. You must agree with our rules. You must be mature and objective. There is no real-life age requirement to be a moderator, however you must act as though you're in your 20s or higher for us to consider you. If we feel you'll show favor to your friends once you're a moderator, you'll not be accepted. The mod team must be able to trust you implicitly. You must have a strong-willed and upbeat personality. You have to have a sense of humor and the ability to crack jokes or we're just not going to work well together. Also, I'm not going to lie: being a moderator is a horrible, thankless job. People will hate you and flame you and send me PMs claiming that you broke into their house and killed their poodle, and you'll almost never get a pat on the back from anyone other than the other mods. But if you're cool with that, then awesome. Also, you're deranged. But it's the kind of deranged we want to hire. How it all goes down: So, let’s get to the good stuff. How do you eager little munchkins apply? Send your applications to Dacheat-- I will make his inbox extra-spacious just for you! Here’s how to go about it: copy and paste the little application questionnaire below, and fill it in accordingly. It will then be posted it in the mod forum for all of our mods to read, and we’ll discuss each person and whether or not we want to make sweet, sweet love down by the fire with them. After all of that discussion, we take a vote. And if anyone mod or admin votes against you, I'm sorry, my dear, but you must sashay away. We take this incredibly seriously, and we get a million and one applications (there’s always that ONE extra), so we’re pretty intense in our decision-making process. We are looking for the top notch members to be mods, and we need people who will mesh well with our entire group. At this point, let me remind you that you MUST meet our requirements in order to be a mod. If you do not meet our requirements, please do not apply. Not to be too much of a bitch, but it’s a waste of our time, as well as yours, and we don’t want to imagine making sweet, sweet love to you down by the fire if you can’t be a mod. It’s just cruel. Goddamnit, Aza, you ramble too much, and this is almost exactly the same as when Fosjam posted it! MOVE ON ALREADY! OK, OK! Don't get your panties in a bunch! The following questions are to be copied and pasted into a PM that will be sent to DACHEAT, AND ONLY DACHEAT, and then each question is to be filled out. DO NOT DELETE THE QUESTIONS. Good lord, please don’t do that. It hurts us, so, so much. Also, you will not receive a confirmation that your application has been received -- just trust that Dacheat has it. (Whoops totally be sending messages that I've received them) What's your name in real life? Just a first name is fine if you want -- we just like to be on a first-name basis. How old are you in real life? Nothing you say can hurt you we're just getting to know you! Which server do you play, or did you play? Do you play Wakfu? You don't have to be a Dofus or Wakfu player for the position, but we'd like to know your community background. Where are you from and when are you generally online? Give us your time zone, too. Who the hell are you? Talk about yourself, what you like, what you do... all that junk. Why do you want to be a moderator? If you don't get chosen, who would you want to see fill the position, and why? Meatloaf would do anything for love, but he won't "do that". What is that? What's one of your pet peeves about the moderation? And no, this doesn't mean you should attack us (that would be bad for getting on the team, don't ya know;)), but more along the lines of constructive criticism and how you plan on improving things. Do you have any special talents? What are they? Can you show us? What's the one thing that annoys you most that people do on this forum? Which area of the forum do you think you can best help us with? What is your favourite topic on IV and why? Batman: superhero, or just a man? Does it even matter? Who would you ban and why? And no, this isn't the opportunity to take out your rage on your former in-game BFF who stole your gobbal set--this is about identifying a person who you believe is hurting the IV community. Which comic book character deserves to have the next big movie made about him/her, and why? Draw us a bad MS Paint picture of your favourite thing/memory of Imps. And then tell us a bit about it. War (huh, yeah). What is it good for? TIP TO ALL APPLICANTS: There are some open-ended questions up there that ask you to just talk about something. If you answer these questions with just a couple words or a short sentence, your application will be deleted without notice. If you don't have time to sit down and think about an answer, you don't have time to mod! Also, some of these questions are just begging you to be funny. Please don't be boring. We hate boring apps! MY TIP TO ALL APPLICANTS: IF YOU POST YOUR APPLICATION IN THIS THREAD, SEND IT TO ANYONE OTHER THAN DACHEAT, OR YOU FAIL TO FILL YOUR APPLICATION OUT PROPERLY, IT WILL NOT REFLECT WELL ON YOU. I know that seems a bit harsh, but as with any job application (and I mean “job” in this instance, as this is a volunteer position and there is no pay ), a lot of consideration goes into how you represent yourself when you get your foot in the door. If you do it poorly, that’s going to be noticed, and first impressions are always important. So that's it! Mod applications will be open for awhile, but don't expect the window to be too large, because we get bombarded pretty quickly and we're aiming to hit the ground running on these. So get to it, folks !
