Hello Stickpage, I've got a fairly important staff-related announcement to make today that I'm sure quite a few of you will jump at. Before I get to that, I want to announce the addition of Hewitt (http://forums.stickpage.com/member.php?160804-Hewitt) to the Core Team Mods. Hewitt has been on our radar for quite some time, as he is practically an ideal member. He's well mannered, mature and possesses a fair and just understanding of the rules. These qualities contributed to the unanimous decision among staff to offer him the position, which he confirmed with me today that he was interested in. Please welcome Hewitt to the team and send him your love.

Now on to the announcement. With the addition of Hewitt as a mod, our Core Team is once again full. However, I've been meaning for a while now to re-work the sectional mods so that certain sections get better attention. I don't have any specific people in mind for the job, so what I'm doing is allowing applications for modship to be sent to me. If you're interested, please read the rest of this thread thoroughly and then follow the instructions.

Applications are now closed. Thanks to those that applied. I will be announcing the decision within the next few days.

The Position

The position you will be applying for depends on what section you're most interested in. If it doesn't matter, please pick an arbitrary section but state that you'd be happy anywhere so I know I can shift you around if needed. All of the positions are classified under the term Sectional Mod. Pretty straightforward, it just means you're the mod of a specific section.

Before applying, please make sure you understand what it is you'll be doing. The position is not a vanity item. You are expected to fulfill your duties as a moderator, I am not interested in people who want the spot just so they can act like they're better than common folk. Make sure you are WILLING and ABLE to perform, we really need active members who have a good head on their shoulders. Too often do we get people to moderate and they're active for maybe a week before they vanish.

As a Sectional Mod, your duties will be as follows:

Sectional Mods are the first line of defense for their section
Enforce global forum rules and rules for their section if applicable
Keep sections clean, make sure the topics are relevant
Maintain a friendly and positive attitude; be approachable
Use best judgement when enforcing rules; consult peers if necessary
Review reports for their section and handle accordingly; escalate to a global mod if necessary

Sectional mods are to very rarely step outside their section when moderating. The reason we have sectional mods is not only so that those sections get more attention, but also to keep things tidy on the moderation side of things. Moderators ARE people, and there isn't an absolute guide to handling every issue you may encounter, so opinions about punishment or infractions may vary from mod to mod. Sectional mods are invited to handle their section the way they see fit. Core Team Mods should not be encroaching on your territory very often and without good reason, so you are able to remain consistent so users of your section will know what to expect. You may also add or remove rules within reason, and with approval from Stone or myself. Your section becomes something you can be creative with.

On this forum the mods have a hierarchy. Sectional Mods are there to handle their specific section, places where Global Mods may not get to as often. Sectional Mods should be the first to infract, clean or otherwise handle a situation. If it's beyond their scope or abilities, they have Core Team Mods to back them up and take matters from them. For example, User A and User B get into a fight, User A starts following User B from thread to thread harassing them. One of these incidents occurs in your section. As a mod, you should infract User A for flaming, clean up the comments if necessary and then alert a Core Team Mod to the incident and point out the other threads outside of their section where the flaming occurred so the Core Team Mod can handle it.

In the Bat Cave (the secret moderator sub-forum), there is a thread that outlines in-depth the hierarchy, appropriate times to escalate an issue and how to handle things as a mod. This will be your first thing to read if you are accepted.

The Sections

Some sections you may be working with another member on. You two are expected to get along and work things out together as a team. You may apply together if you feel. You are also expected to work with the Core Team Mods, as they might have ideas they wish to contribute. Within reason, YOU will be running your section and Core Team Mods are aware they cannot make changes and such without your consent. Ultimately however, you may be overruled. Currently I have divided the sections as such:

The Creative Consultant

Positions Available: 2

Sections Covered:

Introduction Section
General Help
Resources


Specific Responsibilities:

Greet new members, maybe have a copy & paste message that explains some useful things and gives important links (note: I may install a mod that will do this automatically so you don't have to, you would write the greeting message)
Make sure new users are aware of where and what the rules are without being pushy
Create, update or maintain a template or guidelines for proper introductions
Assist users to the best of your ability if you can in the help section, point users in the right direction
Maintain and/or organize general helpful information about the site (it's sort of a mess right now)
Make sure resources are appropriate and actually work
Maintain official threads, you're allowed



Mr. (or Mrs.) How-To

Positions Available: 1 or 2

Sections Covered:

All Tutorials


Specific Responsibilities:

You're allowed to work with me and/or Stone to set up the tutorials section how you would like forum wise, right now there are a ton of sub-forums for it and I'd like to see it get more organised
Contribute and maintain tutorials, ensure links and images are still valid
Ensure tutorial quality; maybe maintain a template of sorts
Handle official tutorial submissions for inclusion in the official section (or if we rework it, hopefully we'll have a "known quality tutorial" section), move the best tutorials to said section



Artistically Inclined

Positions Available: 2

Sections Covered:

Entire Showoff Section


*Note that one of the core team mods is currently overseeing the writers lounge, you'll need to work with them for that section. This is a special scenario.

Specific Responsibilities:

Watch these sections like a bloody hawk, make sure the posts are in the right sections and aren't off topic (even though this is a given from the above, these section are notoriously bad for this)
Work with me and/or Stone to organize the section if needed
Make the Animation Attack more lively and friendly. This will be up to you to clean up and organize. I'd ideally like to see weekly or bi-weekly competitions or challenges, someone with a creative mind should take this on. I will give whatever help I can.



The Mediator

Positions Available: 1 or 2

Sections Covered:

All of RHG, Clans and Battles


Specific Responsibilities:

Work with Stone or myself for improvements to RHG system, if any
Inspect RHG characters, make sure they are following the rules
Help people host their battles, mediate when issues arise
Keep people from spamming in clan threads
Make sure no RHG characters or clans have music or any heavy, slow-loading content
Possibly work with me to create a "list of RHGs" thread with an interactive flash display


This section is special, as it's the brainchild of Stone. WeiEn did a good job coming up with creative and fun additions and changes to the system, that is the kind of person we're looking for with this section.


Jack of All Trades

Positions Available: 1

Sections Covered:

All of the Off Topic sections


Specific Responsibilities:

You're free to maintain each section as you see fit. Keeping stickied threads for the games section is a good idea for gamer tags and the like. Be creative, make people want to visit




Remember that the specific responsibilities are in addition to what is expected of a mod. As a mod I encourage discussion and challenging of the rules as long as you are respectable. If you're going to act like a dick, you aren't welcome on the team.

How To Apply

So if you've read all of the above and are still interested, GREAT! To apply, please use the template below and send me a PM with all the information filled out. I will be accepting applications until Saturday, January 19th at 12:00 PM EST. If you want to apply for more than one section, you can so long as you're up for the challenge. Just make sure to note which sections you want. If you want to apply for two but don't want to moderate both, make sure to note that you want one OR the other.



Subject: Moderator Application


Section(s) Requested:
Hours Available:
How Active I Am Currently:
Timezone:
Why I Should Be Considered (Including previous experiences if any):



Additional Notes:








For the sections, please use the names I have issued in bold above to identify which one(s) specifically you're after. Make sure you fill it out in detail, I will discard entries that do not put in enough effort. If you do not have additional notes, feel free to exclude that part of the PM. If you are applying with a friend for a section, make sure you use the additional notes section to tell me so I can consider you both as a team.

Those who are accepted will be notified VIA PM when we make the decisions. Once you are accepted, if you leave on amicable terms you will be given a special "ex-mod" color for your name and possible continued access to the Bat Cave.

Again, please only apply if you're serious and passionate about it. I do not want to have to do this again in the near future. Thanks for reading and good luck to all who apply!

Saw that coming

Also saw Hewitt as a mod coming from a mile away.

I would apply but being as young as I am, that already gives me a disadvantage... So uh yeah congrats Hewitt.

Probably not, I want to allow a few days for everyone to see this thread and have a chance to apply. Making decisions is going to be hard because there are already 18 applications.

In all seriousness, those who are applying should really look at this, and reread over and over till it sticks.

Before applying, please make sure you understand what it is you'll be doing. The position is not a vanity item. You are expected to fulfill your duties as a moderator, I am not interested in people who want the spot just so they can act like they're better than common folk. Make sure you are WILLING and ABLE to perform, we really need active members who have a good head on their shoulders. Too often do we get people to moderate and they're active for maybe a week before they vanish.

If you're gonna apply, ensure you're willing to put in the work effort for it.
Don't apply for mod just to be a mod for it's fringe benefits.

I'll probably send in my application tonight or so.

Jeff
01-18-2013, 01:14 PM
Just so it's clear, Stone and I have final say but all the mods are contributing their opinion in deciding who is best for which positions. There is heavy competition already as I'm pretty sure I've had over 30 applications by now. Those who did not follow the instructions will not be considered, as I don't think someone who can't demonstrate their ability to read and follow clear and basic instructions is qualified for such a position.

Applications will remain open until Saturday, January 19th at 12:00 PM EST. If you're thinking of applying, do it now before you forget.

The deadline has now passed, but I'm pretty sure you got your application in days ago.



Thanks for all the applications, everyone. It might take Jeff and Stone a while to go through them all; we received nearly 40. Please don't be disheartened if you don't get chosen - the competition is very tough and in my view there are more people here who would make great mods than there are mod places going.

Banning isn't that fun unless you honestly really hate the person. Banning just any old plebeian makes you feel bad, like you crushed someone's dreams and hopes

Banning should be reserved for those that are really deserving of it, for example, an obvious bot. Somewhat surprised that they can't ban but just as each forum on the internet has their own set of rules and regulations so does each forum have their own distribution of power amongst the moderators and admins in charge. While they can't ban, I do believe that they can give infractions to users. Overall, sectional seems to be for keeping a certain section clean and nice looking. To moderate the amount of useless posts and to keep users posting in accordance to the rules. Every member seems to be welcomed here and only banned as a sort of 'last resort'. Just my thoughts, I may be completely off in my interpretation of sectional mods, especially since I am a relativelly new user.

I'm sure it's in the moderator handbook.

Half of SP's banned users were banned for excessive amounts of infractions that cross the cut off point, Which I believe ranges somewhere from 10 to 20 points.
Let's leave that scenario to the actual mods though.

Banning should never be fun to begin with. It is a regrettable action you take that bears no emotional bias. As mentioned, you are "crushing their hopes and dreams" as it were.
Don't misinterpret me, I was only joking; I fully understand the levity of banning.

But there is a certain level of emotional bias that occurs when it comes to that, though, so I have to disagree. Like immediately banning a user for blatant disrespect of an administrator (especially if you are said administrator) is an emotional response, and a completely logical one too.

Though disrespecting forum users period is against the rules. But then again, if it was some run-of-the-mill-user, it would only be an infraction for flaming or something.

Oh yeah I agree with you on that. I acknowledge the euphoria you get from unloading on a user who has been annoying and by all means deserves to be banned, but I also wished to point out that that feeling is never 'fun' in the longrun. It's like a mild high you get from snorting something.

Yeah ! I also agree. Walking around with the feeling of constantly wanting to ban someone is not fun either....

Or you could just be patient. Regardless of when Jeff said he was gonna announce it, it doesn't change the fact that it hasn't been announced yet. Whether it's today or a week from now will knowing exactly when change the results or increase your chances? Probably not. I know you're anxious and excited. We all are.

I know this has been said but impatience is bad for a mod if you think about it. Being impatient, if you give someone a PM or response on a post telling them to stop and they don't, you INSTA-BAN instead of give them an infraction, before even thinking. Sometimes this is good for hackers and hacked accounts and virus-spreaders, but most other things this is not the best solution.

There's something I think a few of the people here haven't really come to terms with yet:
Being a moderator isn't some sort of forum level up, the only thing you'll get in return is expectations, you'll be expected to know the rules very well and when they're being broken, you'll be expected to moderate the section(s) you're assigned to, meaning for the most part, that section counts on you to make it look good, you'll need to be able to cope with simple rule-breakings (example, a wrong RHG format) and be fair with a simple punishment, be able to cope with many beginners all asking the same questions, and of course, be expected to guide all of them, you'll possibly be watched by other moderators to ensure you're doing your job correctly.

I'm not pointing fingers at anyone, just a few people I've noticed sign up didn't seem to see this very clearly.
And good luck to anyone with hopes of being a section moderator. :)

Yeah, pretty much this. I'll be glad to see the section moderators chosen are excited and interested in helping and/or improving the sections of the forum assigned to them and that section's specialties.

Once again, good luck to everyone wishing to become a sectional moderator.

Baby gurl that is some long paragraph anyways, you are right. Mods are expected to uphold and enforce the rules, also improve their section. And not everyone that applied has made theirself known.

Beep boop.

In all seriousness, I'm making a general comparison to between other threads.
Usually I see "nothing more needs to be said, #instalock" by core moderators after a thread serves its initial purpose which comes off differently in this situation as opposed to "normally this would be off the announcements by now, abit abnormal, maybe the mods want to keep it open for some reason out of my understanding "
so I ask jeff if he's even considering such.
Thats it basically.

Sorry for the late response, I just checked the thread again today. To start off, guess I'll apologize. I didn't know you had preexisting knowledge of when Jeff was going to announce it since all I ever saw was "soon" as far as a time estimates go. I just thought you were trying to get a specific date out of him or someone else, by pretending like you already knew but just forgot. I'ts happened before, that's all.

If people suck up to the mods then they won't get infractons. I don't see why this is a bad thing because I am pretty sure they will always follow the rules so that the mod will like them. You can't really suck up to authority figures if you don't follow the rules they enforce.

lol It's amusing how much this applies here. To avoid further looking like a total sycophant, I'd suggest that everyone just waits for the results. I know you have a burning urge to show what a good moderator you would be by constantly reminding Jeff about it on this thread, but trying to rack up any points just looks dumb as hell. Rather than hyping up something which is unlikely to happen, don't expect it to. That way, if it does happen, you'll be surprised and happy, but if it doesn't you won't be disappointed.
