View Full Version : Announcement: The New Moderators, and a farewell to a friend.

Hello again Stickpage, I'm sure many of you have been waiting for this moment and thought that it might never arrive. With input from the other mods, I have finally come to a decision about who the new team of sectional mods are. It seriously wasn't easy. I had more than 40 applications come in from all sorts, and while not everyone can be a moderator, I really want to emphasize that many of you are more than qualified and it was a pleasure reading your passionate applications. It's always good to know that so many people care about this site. Before I get to the results, I'd like to take this time to say goodbye to a friend and fellow moderator, Zed, who has decided it's time to put away the banhammer and step down from being a core-team mod. Zed has been a significant and important part of this site since even before Stone and I came into the picture. Zed was one of our first choices when we were setting up the new staff, and ever since then he's been an integral part of our team, probably helping more than any other mod, which isn't an easy feat because our mods kick ass. For helping make the merge a smoother transition than it might have been, Zed deserves all the respect in the world. Please drop by his farewell thread (http://forums.stickpage.com/showthread.php?53102-Zed-out) and wish him well on his endeavors. There will always be a spot here for Zed, and hopefully one day in the future he will return.

The Results

Picking such a small amount of users out of so many applications was not easy. All of these moderators stood out in one way or another, and seem best for the job. We will be introducing these members as sectional mods on trial grounds, and if any do not work out then I will pick from a backup list for someone who may be more suitable. For now please welcome the new mods and treat them with the same respect you have for the current staff.

Now with a stronger team, I hope to see some serious improvements in the forums!

Which of these are the mods whose names are colored pinkish? (Like Hewitt for example)

I'm sure the new mods will do just fine

The Almighty Zed has left us for awhile. A new King shall reign? Let us see what happens

None of them, they're sectional mods.

So they're green right?
What's the difference between green and purple?

Green mods are limited only to the sections they've been assigned, pink mods have power everywhere and can ban people.

green colour means they are confined to the environment they applied for.
purple means they can do whatever the fuck they want (not the use famous words of Zed).

And show respect for The Lord and Master. Zed.

We will always miss you <3.

You did good. :)

Also congrats to the rest of the other staff and myself for making the team!

Xero

@Quik There was the option of a 3rd show off moderator if it became abundantly clear that more help is needed.
If this is the case, I do recommended leokill or Erinbutt for that position.

Jeff

I'm not going to get into detail about why I picked who I did, but that section was particularly difficult because there were like 5 people who made really really good cases. There are specific reasons why I chose who I did, and it's likely I will be adding a third, but I'm not saying who until it actually happens.

EDIT: Also I had a lot to factor in. A user's history with the site is important, as well as previous infractions and their attitude and the like. There's a reason why it took so long and also why I don't leave the decision up to whether or not they're good at the section they're going to mod.

I could have sworn someone told me that the infractions weren't going to be a factor in the decision making

Imada
03-06-2013, 12:36 PM
I think its because if your applying to be a mod, it wouldn't be good to have a long record of infractions.

Im never becoming a mod. (Banned twice)

Thanks for making me a mod, and congrats to everyone else. Zed, your great arguments and overall badassery will be a beacon of light that will hopefully shine well on this new generation.

Oh, nice! I like this team of moderators. Especially, Rosie and CaM in the RHG section. It's an interesting duo - seems like it'll do good.

Mikematic

Can't say I really like these choices, but I'm in no position to argue. So good luck to all of you I guess.

Tsang

I'm pretty sure no one ever said infractions won't be a factor in the final cut. What was said was that if you've received an infraction before, it doesn't mean you have no chance in becoming a moderator.

What I'm stating is that just because you have an infraction on your record doesn't mean you'll never become a mod. However, if you have a history of receiving infraction after infraction, it probably lowers your chances of becoming one.

Congratulations all of you. I hope that you will be successful in your quest to keep this forum nice and tidy. You have a huge gap to fill in with Zed's departure, I hope, for the sake of all of us, you are up for the task.

I think the only reason infractions would come into account is because to be a mod you need to have a good understanding of the rules. You don't really understand if you keep on breaking them, lol.

And shaq, you better make more raps. I don't give a shit how busy you are with being a mod. WRITE ME SUMTHIN PEEERTY!!!! >:D Anywho, this new generation of mods I think is perfectly suited for their positions. Fantastic job and good luck to all of you. :)

Makes sense, the Shaq of all trades is now a jack of all trades, more than half the people said to be new moderators I don't know who they are.

By the way, who was Zed? I saw his name and I'm wondering what he did to get such a special seat of dedication.

he was the administrator before the merge, then was put down to global moderator. now he has resigned

New mods seem to be doing their job (look at all those beautiful locked RHG threads.)
And cheers to Zed for being a great mod, and congrats to the new moderators.

Oh. *facepalm* I thought they modded everywhere lol.

Well, they do.
Core team mods moderate all over (that's where the 'global' mod comes into play), but they're mostly in General Discussion, so we don't really need a mod specified for just General Discussion.

Every administration has their own expectations and criteria. I think I did a good job so far in selecting the best people for the job due to all the awesome initiative and activity from them, but I also think my backup mods would do equally as well.

Backup mode, are they the ones that swoop into action if the ones you selected aren't doing their job well and be are demoted. But let's hope it doesn't come to that eh.
