[Guide] Becoming A Moderator
#1
While I can't give you a objective step-by-step guide on how to become a moderator, I can touch on the basics and share my anecdote of becoming a mod. First things first, before you can be a mod you must have "Chapter Member" status. SuperWerer <URL url="https://superwerer.com/viewtopic.php?f=74&t=448&sid=51a16a0e1ade9f0e5c427b8accf7cacc">made a great guide</URL> on the subject, but I will recap in this thread.

Really the #1 requirement to become a Chapter Member is having enough posts to equal or exceed 0.5% of the entire forum. If you don't know how to check your percentage, it is located in your profile under "User Statistics". Here's mine as an example: <IMG src="https://i.gyazo.com/39d5602909a1cc2d9ba85220a83c83ba.png">[img]<URL url="https://i.gyazo.com/39d5602909a1cc2d9ba85220a83c83ba.png"><LINK_TEXT text="https://i.gyazo.com/39d5602909a1cc2d9ba ... 3c83ba.png">https://i.gyazo.com/39d5602909a1cc2d9ba85220a83c83ba.png</LINK_TEXT></URL>[/img]</IMG>
Essentially the idea is that once a member starts really contributing to the community and posting // being active then it is probable that they will reach 0.7% by then and can become a Chapter Member. Be active, post, contribute, enjoy the community and you will achieve that first step. An additional requirement for joining the staff time is fluent English.


I moved along pretty quickly, I was really excited when I first saw this community and I was just going crazy with giving people feedback in the soundtrack promotion sub-forum. Quickly I accumulated enough posts to join the Chapter Member rank. Once you are a Chapter Member, you have the potential to be asked to join staff at any time. It was probably my second time talking to SuperWerer via the voice channel in discord. We were talking and he was discussing some of the challenges he was facing at the time in regards to the site, and I offered to help out by joining the staff. That's something that I should mention, I would never have asked for mod. If you <I>do</I> ask about it, you're going to be on the admins radar and they will more than likely discuss the possibility. Of course from this point, I went from Chapter Member to Trial Moderator.

Trial Moderator is exactly what it sounds like, it's a time where the other staff watch how you work and see if you're trustworthy and things of that nature. There is no set time limit for how long someone might be in this stage. If you mess up, it could either prolong your position as <I>TRIAL</I>, instead of a full moderator. Or, if it's bad enough you can be stripped of the title. Moderators are all here to help others in the community and work on constantly improving the site.
I can't stress this enough, but if you truly have interest in becoming a mod, you should definitely ask.

To summarize,
- Be a Chapter Member
- Post frequently, be active and contributing to the community
- Follow all the guidelines
- Just ask about it!
- Be fluent in English

Gravaged is our new community guide :mrgreen: I'm always wanting to be a part of this community. The thing I love about it is that it's so chill, we don't have any spammers / straight up jerks, and the community is small enough that I can get to know everyone in it! I imagine that SuperWerer will grow substantially, and quickly. That's why I love this website! :mrgreen:

That's why I'm proud of my job as a trial moderator - to keep the community how it is now Wink
