To aspiring moderators.

Post by Fusion » Wed Sep 03, 2008 12:05 am

Greetings.

I've noticed several users taking it upon themselves to correct other users when they break the rules - either by replying to their rule-breaking posts, or by PMing them to reprimand them for it.

Whether they do it to help keep the forums clean, or to show off moderator potential is irrelevant - this is not appropriate behaviour.

If you have not been assigned as a moderator by either Mooncow or myself, you have not been authorised to do this. Why shouldn't you? For the following reasons.
  1. You may be cluttering threads.
  2. You may be enforcing the rules incorrectly, making our job even more difficult
  3. By not informing a moderator of the problem, the user will not be getting the correct punishment.

The report function is there for a reason - please use it, instead of trying to moderate these forums yourself. We are always keeping an eye out for potential moderators - so if you wish to be one, that's the way to demonstrate your ability.

Thank you for reading. Have fun!

I just now used the report button...


But the subject box doesn't show the thread name anymore. (and no, I cannot type in it.)

edit: never mind.

Not at the time. What you can do is copy and paste the chat text into a text document and then forward that in a PM to a moderator. =)

Umm I saw some posts of becoming a mod so please don't post that kind of stuff because don't beg or you will never be a mod.Secondly don't brake any rules.But the most important rule is not to beg to a mod or you may not be a mod.
Its been so long you know....

All excellent reasons, Fusion. Although I have never seen this.

(Probably because I've been on Chao Island for only two days)

That's not true, tell me why they wouldn't pick you to be a mod if you didn't have good spelling but you had every other quality they look for. True, if you're just being lazy and don't type the full word that's just laziness, remember, stil be yourself, they aren't looking for a bunch of mod wannabes :wink:

Yeah... you can be normal. And yes if you have other qualities. they will recruit you. But.... just means you'll have to try a bit harder.
