I was browsing the "quick links" think at the top of the page (I was bored), and saw "Apply to be a Mod". Is this a new thing? If it is, it doesn't work at the moment.

Yeah, it kind of defeats the purpose of saying "don't ask to be a mod, you will be chosen if needed etc...", but no doubt its a cunning plan....

Not only will it require applicants to accept the moderator guidelines before applying, but it they will also have to fill out a great detail of information about themselves, the reason they should be considered for the position and much more. From there all the admin's can review the application, make comments on it, and more. We can even look at it, then keep an eye on that person to see if he/she live's up to all the thing's he/she posted about themselves Sort of trial run per say. So you see it's not just a simple "send in your application and your hired". So you cannot say "Sorry, to be blunt, but i don't agree with this", when you have absolutely no clue what our plan's are for this, and what this "application feature" has to offer. Just because we add something new doesn't mean we are going to start hiring new mods that registered yesterday. You need to have some faith, not faith in the program's we install, but faith in admins...

Now sorry for me being blunt, but in all honesty;

[quote=Phoenix_22]Sorry, to be blunt, but i don't agree with this.

We don't need your agreement on this :uhm:

(for those of you that were active in the beta, this was a feature we tested near the end).

I will upload a few example images from the beta forums admin control panel. In these images you will see what me (the test applicant) has filled out in the options and you will also be able to see where each admin can add there opinions and rate the application.

attachment.php?attachmentid=32194&stc=1attachment.php?attachmentid=32196&stc=1attachment.php?attachmentid=32195&stc=1

As you can see it isn't a simple process and we will review each application to the fullest. This will help us find moderator's in other way's beyond just selecting people we feel would like the job. I have talked to many people I think would be good for the job and in the end they are not interested. This way, we will know the people interested in the position before hand and can then review this person's posting behavour, the way they treat other members etc.

In the end I think this applicaiton feature will help us a great deal.

(mind the penis talk, we "testers" just like to have a good laugh now and then). But in the end we are serious and don't smile or laugh or giggle. We don't even think happy thoughts. :mad:
