Application Deadline: 10 July 2011 at 11pm GMT
We are looking for new people to join our moderator team as trainees! If you're interested, active, and think you'd make a great moderator, keep reading!
What does a moderator do?
The most obvious role of a moderator is patrolling the forums to remove inappropriate content and handle user-submitted reports. Moderators lock threads, remove posts, move misplaced threads, issue warnings to users who violate the rules, and our higher ranked moderators also issue bans. But other less obvious roles include being leaders of the community, setting a good example, and participating in private moderator discussions to form new policies, reevaluate old policies, and work together to make the Tip.It Forum as fun and enjoyable as possible. Many moderators take on their own projects to host forum contests or manage important stickies that need constant updating.So then what is a moderator trainee? How do they differ from regular moderators?
Moderator trainees are moderators in training. They work under the guidance of our regular moderator team. Moderator trainees are not guaranteed to become full moderators (but we hope they will be ). Trainees usually only moderate one or two boards, whereas our full moderators have powers in 8 boards and more (depending on their rank).What qualities are we looking for in candidates?
Our highest priority is finding moderators who actively play RuneScape and can actively moderate the Tip.It community. But even if you don't fit this criteria, you are still welcome to apply and would be equally considered for a position! Other important qualities are a high level of forum activity, the ability to manage a group of users without bias, a good sense of judgment, and a professional attitude. We're not a boring, serious bunch and we do joke around now and then, but it's also important that moderators are professional in their decision-making and in the way that they interact with users in their official capacity (such as issuing warnings).Who can apply?
- Below are a list of requirements needed to apply:
- You may not hold any other staff position on Tip.It. This includes Tip.It Crew and Tip.It Events Team. If you are a member of the Editorial Panel then you may apply.
- You must have registered at least 3 months ago.
- You must have a post count greater than 150.
If you have broken rules in the past, you will not be immediately ruled out. We will consider the severity of the offense(s) and how much time has elapsed since your most recent offense.Still interested?? Even if you're not sure if you're qualified, go ahead and apply anyway! You may be pleasantly surprised.
