[Staff] Moderators - Explanations and Applications

654 posts in this topic

Eh, you say they aren't an issue, but trust me. People used to always find a way to a spot before they was even added, the staff and bat outta hell just made exploiter's lives easier. Mods are always needed no matter how well the server is automated.

I've been notified by a moderator who has been unable to access the sm_votekick command.

 

I would like to ask if any other mods have been having this problem recently, this way we can correct the problem as soon as possible if it is shared by multiple mods.

 

EDIT: I've received word from a second moderator that they were unable to access their powers at all. Notify me if needed so everything can be corrected!

How Do I Suggest A Moderator?

 

If you want to see a user become a Moderator, post their name, SteamID, and a link to their Steam profile here. Include a brief description about what you believe would make them a good Moderator, such as their history within the community, how active they are on X servers, etc. and we will consider your proposal. Please do not submit yourself to this thread. Since this is a community position (relying on community votes for an action to be taken), we would prefer to see users nominated by the community.

I Would Like Recommend The Great and Power Steel (http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198095099076) to be a Moderator...this is because he is active during EST and seems to get along with every pony... i know this because we have hung out on PoniPoniPoni....

You say that the person is active, however I have yet to see the person myself.  Plus, you are talking about Poni3, which is a totally different community than Ponyville.  Regardless if he is active in Poni3, how long has he been with the Ponyville community and what can he bring to the table?

More or less, i'd agree with the post above.

I've known Steel for a while now. He's active from like 6:30 AM to 2:30 PM eastern NY time or so every day, unless it's on the weekend. Since this is about him, I might as well recommend him for a Moderator. (http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198095099076)

 

He's been kind to just about everyone really, and respects the rules quite a bit. He loves the staff, respects the rules all the time from what I see, and hates for anyone to disobey them either.

I've seen him try his best to keep servers clean, especially ones that aren't from Ponyville (as mentioned above) and really has a fun time chatting with other people rather then do anything mean to them. Sure he brags a bit like his win streak, but i'd say he still cares about everyone.

Seems a bit odd coming out of the blue like this, but I've found out about this and decided to recommend him from my own word. We're amazing friends when it comes down to relation, and from seeing his actions I would think he would be suited for this.

 

Just coming from me :3

From the looks of it, Steel, you've only been here since late June, so you must have done something to DRASTICALLY win everyone over.  Otherwise, I am not recommending TheGreatAndPowerful Steel for Moderator powers.

I personally believe the nominated person should be nominated by another mod/admin or have been around for at least 1 year and earned respect of the players (at least 60% of all the gamers of the server) before even having the rights to be nominated by a non mod/admin

 

While we are on the subject of long time player i nominate The Mr. Kumar because he has an outstanding record with the servers and is well known which would make him a good choice for moderator status

Yeeeaaaah, I'm going to decline this nomination right now since both posters share the same IP address. That's a bit fishy.

 

 

However I would like to +1 for Kumar. He's shown he can manage himself, and comes to me when in need of help to have bans placed if the moderators are unavailable.

 

 

Back to my earlier posts, going to discuss with Raini the list of mods I have so far that are unable to use commands.

Actually, Steel is right on that one. Solaris is Squishy, which shares the same IP as Steel since they live together in the same house, same computer, same internet. I believe they're brother/brother if I can remember~

Also, I wouldn't know why he gave away the fact that i'm his boyfriend since it's a little unrelated, but yeah it's pretty much true :3

 

I might as well edit this in to say the least, but please excuse Steel for some parts. He is loving, and does care for the server to be maintained and in order. His grammar needs a slight bit of work yes, but i'd at least give him a chance to do this.

A year is a bit much for a wait, but even so everyone has their different limit sets for how they roll. Maybe you could always test something out for a bit, see how it works and all. I've seen other servers for different games purposely let the limit be around a month or so just to test people to see if they're right or not. That being said though, it was a minecraft server and not a TF2 server plus like I stated before, every admin/owner has different standards.

 

I'm sure letting him try out is worth a shot. It doesn't kill me if he doesn't get Moderator straight away though, since I've known the feeling of trying to get it before for around 9 or so months.

I'm not saying they aren't two separate people. I'm just saying the same IP is a little suspicious. Nothing bad will happen for it, just less likely for us to accept the nomination.

 

If other players want to come forward and nominate you / support the nomination, that's perfectly fine. It's just that the same IP could make it look like he tried nominating himself using two accounts. It just looks silly, that's all.
