WOOT, 2011!!!...wait...wut?

Postby Matapiojo » Mon Jan 03, 2011 10:05 am

As some of you may have noted, I went away unexpectedly for a little bit as last year came to a close. One thing that was made painfully obvious to me from this absence is that the Mod Team is not exactly sufficient to support the Topia's current needs (the "loss" of Sapper is a hurting blow).

Therefore, I am opening the grounds for new Mods to be appointed in this new year, but we are going to do this a bit differently. I will not be promoting many global mods. What I will be doing is assigning mods to govern one area in particular. Think of Global Moderators as the Topia's "Corporate", and the new Mods as your "Branch Managers".

My hopes is that this will help us run a lot more smoothly round these parts should the Global Mods be absent for any reason.

So...

I am looking for ONE deserving Factpiler to become our new Global Moderator. Any interested can PM me for it.

Further, I am looking for THREE Forum Moderators. These new Mods will take care of the Piler Corner, the FactPilerverse, and the Entertainment Forums respectively. Pilers interested in these roles may appoint themselves or be nominated here.

Things to be considered for each, are:
- Piler Corner Moderator
    People Person = this section more than most deals with every-day Piler issues.
    Game Master experience = RPs are some of the more popular threads in the entire board, and they need much love.
    Solid grammar = Articles and Fan Fics, as well as RPs, need gentle loving from a benevolent editor.
- FactPilerverse
    Researcher = this section needs the touch of a scholar as we need to live up to our "fact" portion of the title.
    Historian = much of our FP roots are being neglected by all of us, and we need someone willing to slap some sense back into us.
    Debater = we are in need of a solid activist that is both well informed on the happenings of matches on the main site, and can recognize how to make lopsided battles fair for our Alternate Battles.
- Entertainment
    Gamer Supreme = we need someone that is well versed in the ins and outs of most gaming platforms as well as alternative gaming.
    Geekmeister = this section needs the attention of one who is in tune with everything that makes us the loving geeks we are; cinema, television, literature, periodicals, etc.

Again, those are just guidelines. Do not look at them as requirements. Like everything in life, we are the sum of our experiences, and there is nothing in any of those groups that cannot be "learner" if you are willing to be taught.

Also keep in mind that though these three mods will be "specialists", they are still going to be working closely with the other Global Mods. No one needs to stand alone here folks.

So have at it. Let me or anyone else on the Team know if you are interested in any of the above.

I would like to "run" for the pilers corner mod (Please excuse that these paragraphs aren't going to be spaced. I'm currently using my PS3 and it's not the best thing to type with) I like to think of myself as a people person. I am generally friendly and joke around with the people here. While I have no real experience as a GM of any RPs, I have acted as an "assistant" if you will, explaining things to newcomers of whatever RP I am in, and have shown in DR to try and get people to post when it's their turn (I try not to be too irritating on the subject though, sorry John) I have been writing one fan-fiction branching off of the DR main story line(One that I hope to finish and make into a book), and while not perfect I think that for the most part I have taken care to edit it well enough to be enjoyed properly (I still catch some mistakes here and there when I re-read it and make sure to fix them.) And my DR posts and OFF post seem to be edited well (Though I may re-read through those again soon to make sure)

(Post continued, my PS3 wouldn't let me type any more) So I do take great care of my RPs and fan-fiction posts, and I have respect for other peoples work and would make sure to give them the same, if not better brand of polish I put on my posts. So there you go. That's why I think I'd make a good mod for that section. Any other specific questions on why I'd be a good man for the job? EDIT: Oh, and I lurk about the Pilers corner posts quite a bit, so it's already one of my "focus spots" in FPT, thus if anything in that area comes up, I am highly likely to notice it.

Thank you, Random. I will take this into consideration while I discuss it with the other Mods.

Hahaha, and I would agree with you. That section doesn't really need moderation, though. If I feel it does, it'll be yours by default!
