Things tend to get out of hand around here at PaperDemonMedia.com so we often need moderators in the forums to help keep the peace. If you are interested in becoming a moderator, please read on...
These are some of the skills
that we are looking for in potential mod candidates:
So what exactly does a Moderator do?
- You must be polite and have a good record of past behavior here at PDM
- It would be good if you have any sort of past modding experience, although this isn't essential
- You must have a good understanding of the site rules
- You can't be afraid to put your foot down
- You'll need to be a fairly active member at PDM and within the forums
- You'll need to be able to commit to an hour every few days to come to PDM and mod your forum(s)
- You'll also need good reading and writing skills in English
- You'll also need decent computer skills and know your way around the forums well.
Usually, a Mod is assigned to a specific forum to keep watch over. As a Mod, you'll need to read all of the messages and forum threads in your designated forum and be on the look out for people breaking the site rules. The common things that people do are flaming and double posting. You'll also be responsible for moving forum topics if they are in the wrong forum as well as locking topics that are old or are getting out of hand. If someone breaks a rule, you'll be responsible for logging that behavior in our Log system (this will be explained to you later if you get the job).
Do you get paid for being a moderator?
Well, sorry, no. But you do get to have your name in a pretty color and get to boss people around. That is incentive enough, right?
Ok I'm interested in becoming a Mod. What do I do?
If you believe you would be a good candidate for moderating, please send me a private message and tell me why you think you would be a good candidate. Also please indicate which forums you would be interested in moderating.*
*There may be more than one moderator per forum. Active forums may need multiple mods. You may also request that a new forum be made if you think a new one would be beneficial to the members at PDM.
