  1. Hi folks! After almost five long years, we’re once again opening up applications for a new member to join our exclusive Moderator team! What we’re looking for in a Mod hasn’t changed much from previous rounds; so you might spot slight similarities between this post and Azaelya’s last recruitment drive... or even Fosjam’s before it. However, there are some additional aspects that we’re looking to fill this time around. We recognise there is a currently a lack of staff who are active Dofus players. Therefore we’d ideally like someone currently active in-game (any version) who can help keep the forum in-line with changes to the Dofus environment. This may involve the creation of new and engaging ‘official’ threads or providing feedback to the admin team where aspects of the forum lose relevancy and may require updating. Over the last few years Imps Village has undoubtedly lost a sizeable amount of activity. I feel a large proportion of this has been outside of our control, with the significant reduction in Dofus player base and more ‘modern’ communities such as Discord. However, we could also do better in attracting new members to join us as well as retaining all those pesky lurkers... (I know who you are). Ideally, a new Moderator would be able to help us in achieving this. I.e. increasing interaction with in-game communities or organising fun events on the forum to both drive traffic but also encourage member participation. Still interested? Questionable... but keep reading. If you've applied 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 these requirements at the time you're reading this, sorry, but please do not apply (this list has been around for ages, and it still applies). You must never 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. Moderators need to be clear and well-spoken as they are representatives of Imps Village. You must have an excellent history here. If you're a new Imps member, we generally cannot consider you. If you have recent warnings or infractions, it's also unlikely 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 most of the Mods don't immediately recognise your name, you probably won't be considered. This one's always a slightly looser requirement if you have an absolutely stellar application, but it's usually a good place to start. You must be familiar and 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. This goes without saying as the role brings with it access to sensitive and confidential information. 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, flame you and send PMs claiming that you broke into their house and killed their labradoodle, 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. How it all goes down: So, let’s get to the good stuff. How do you apply? PM me your applications directly via Imps - there will be enough inbox space for everyone, I promise! All applications will be kept confidential within the moderation and administration team (so long as you send them to the correct place of course). 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 in the super secret Mod Chambers for all of our Mods and Admins to read, and we’ll discuss each person. After all of that discussion, we will take a vote. If any single Mod or Admin makes a vote against you, I'm sorry but that’s the end of your application journey. We take this incredibly seriously so we’re pretty intense in our decision-making process. We’re looking for that perfect individual to join our team and I’d happily cut my losses in taking no one than compromise on the perfection that is our existing set of staff. The following questions are to be copied and pasted into a PM that will be sent to me (@Rob) 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 may not receive a confirmation that your application has been received -- just trust that I have it. 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 most likely 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! Timing: The application stage will be open for a while (at minimum three weeks from this post) and I’ll provide a weeks notice before this closes; so do take a little time to think about what you want to say. good luck - Rob & the IV team
  2. @Goatee I'm a little worried about you, is there someone you could talk to? x
  3. Launching the first topic in the new retro subforum! Post your goals and achievements, retro edition. You know the drill... Set yourself goals in this thread and post a screenshot once you accomplish one.
  4. A big old OH thread makes me very nostalgic, I hope you keep us updated on your progress. I bet @Youbutsu will be impressed too, I read a few posts of his recently talking about how he only plays 1.29 for the nostalgia high! Good luck!
  5. Thanks to all those who participated! Congratulations to: @Khai (highest reaction count) @Sorwen @Pink-Ivy Please can you each send me a PM with your desired prize of either a Haven Bag or Emote from the below lists: Emotes Haven Bags These will then be allocated to the character named in your entry post.
  6. Pretty funny post on the fourth rendition, the :v) really tops it off! Can you include an estimate of what you're looking to pay though please.
  7. Please include a price range of what you're looking to buy/sell for as per our marketplace guidelines. The reason we ask for this is so that these forums can both benefit you in a quick sale but also provide a future resource for others to price check items. Thanks!

Happy Tanning
  9. Neither do I. Are harnesses sold in the pet market? If so, this is the correct place.
  10. Hi, As promised, both our previous themes (Imps at Night & Imps Graphite) have been restored. For those that weren't aware, you may view the site in a 'dark mode' by selecting Imps Graphite under the 'Theme' dropdown menu to the left of the page footer. While I have completed an expedited bug check, I did prioritise pushing out the updated versions, so there is a likelihood of issues that slipped through the net. Please report any theming issues to me via a personal message on Imps. Over the past few months, we have been experiencing higher than usual levels of spam content reaching Imps Village. This has not always been hastily removed and I must apologise for that, unfortunately with a lower activity forum comes a less active moderation team. As part of this recent update, I have taken measures in an attempt to mitigate the levels of spam that will reach the forum and I hope for the most part this will alleviate the problem in the medium term. If spam should appear, please use the report function as a first action to flag this to Imps staff. You can also reach out to me directly on Discord (Rob #2490) or via a personal message on Imps to make me aware. I must also note, please do not to use methods outside the Dofus community to contact me.... please
  11. You nerds need to get outside more and adjust your eyes... I'll get the themes done tonight if this post gets 52 likes
  12. @Rayish there already was one, Imps Graphite. It'll be available again soon.
