2017 Moderator Recruiting

Welcome to recruitment for the  2017 VGChartz Moderator team!

There has been a lot of interest expressed in joining the moderator team recently.  We've had a number of moderators depart the team over the last few months (more on that in a separate announcement).  We've decided that now is the time to add some fresh faces to our ranks.

We're looking for great users to help us build a great team, and a great community.  We're looking for moderators that bring something excellent to the table, perhaps including some of these qualities:

- A Positive attitude
- A Focus on Teamwork
- Time and motivation to contribute
- Patience
- Consistency
- An ability to challenge the process in a constructive way that makes it better

If this describes you, please complete the application below and PM it to me with the subject line "Mod Application - (Your Username)".

Here's the Application:   

1. Username and Real Name?

2. Age?

3. Country and Time Zone (Preferably use GMT +/-)

4. When are you typically on VGChartz (in your time zone)?

5. Which gaming systems do you own?  What are your favourite systems and games?

6. What do you think makes somebody a good moderator?  Why do you want to be a moderator?

7. Would you change any of the forum rules, or the way those rules are enforced?

That's all!

Cheers - Your Head Mods 

Questions and Answers About the Process:

Q1: How many moderators are you recruiting?
A1: We are aiming to hire up to 3 moderators this month, and 2 more each month after that for a couple of months.  That said, as always, the number of moderators that we recruit will depend on the number of strong applications that we receive.

Q2: Do I need to apply if I've applied before?
A2: Yes. 

Q3: Where do I send my completed application?
A3: PM it to me, Miguel_Zorro.  I'll acknowledge each application "Received".

Q4: When will I find out if I become a mod?
A4: The new moderators will be announced by end of January.

Q5: When do I need to submit by application?
A5: By 8PM EST on Thursday, January 19th

Q6: What time is 8PM EST?
A6: 8PM Eastern Time.  Eastern Time is UTC - 5.  It's the same as 1AM Sunday in London, England.

Q7: What if I'm a few minutes late?  What if I get the time wrong?
A7: You'll want to get it done and send it over several days early so that this doesn't come up.

Q8: I've been recently moderated. Can I still apply?
A8: Moderation history will be considered and having a history as somebody who sets a positive example helps.  If your moderation history is particularly lively, it's going to be tough.  You'll definitely want to address that in your application.

Q9: Will I receive feedback about my application?
A9: Due to the volume of applications that are typically received, applicants will be notified if they were successful or not.  Detailed feedback will not be provided.

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Hopefully a good selection comes in.

PASS. I'm far too forgiving towards my peers to even contemplate such a position. Plus I don't want to be known as a screw. No offense.


Hey! They got SONY on my amiibo! Wait a minute. Two great gaming tastes that game great together!

Is anybody leaving?

I will post a separate announcement about that. 

Good luck to whoever tries to go for it though. 

What are the chances of the new recruits overthrowing the old recruits and having a hostile takeover?
