Forums - Website Topics - [Staff Announcement] New Mod Applications Spring 2019! Deadline: February 14th

Spring 2019 Recruitment To The VGChartz Moderator Team!

Hello everyone and welcome! So, we have a number of moderators either stepping down or changes within the team (I will have a separate thread for all of that).  As a result, we decided that now is the time to add some new faces and views to the mix! This is where we turn to you!

During this side of the year, there is a lot of excitement gearing towards E3, so adding to that fun with new users on the VGC Mod Team is an exciting prospect!  We are looking for moderators that bring something of note to the table, including these qualities:

· A focus on teamwork
· A positive attitude
· An ability to challenge the process in a constructive way that makes it better
· 
Consistency 
· M
otivation to contribute
· Patience
· Time

If this sounds like something that interests you, and you feel up to the task, please complete the application below and PM it to me with the subject line "Mod Application - (Your VGC Username)".


Before we get to that, how about a FAQ?

Q1: "How many moderators are you looking to hire"?
A1: If you meet our requirements, you will be hired! This Season, we will be recruiting 3-4 new moderators!

Q2: "I submitted an application in the past. Will I need to submit a new one"?
A2: Yes. Some things have been altered and changed, so new applications are a must!

Q3: "What is the process"?
A3: Myself and Ryuu96 (Head Moderators) will read over all applications. Those who meet our initial requirements will have theirs passed on to the rest of the mod team. After they also review the applications, and give their thoughts, the Head Mods will finally come back together and choose the new moderators.

Q4: "When will you reveal the new moderators"?
A4: It will take some time, as we want to be sure every application is carefully looked over and all final picks are, but we have a goal of March 1, 2019.

Q5: "Can anyone apply"?
A5: Absolutely! Anyone can submit an application. 

Q6: "I have either been moderated before or have an extensive moderation history. Should I even bother to apply"?
A6: Well, we do review user behavior (particular recent), so that is definitely something we consider while deliberating. However, it is not an automatic disqualification. Take a chance! Remember that you can earn more than will lose! 

Q7: "It's February 15th! Am I late"?
A7: Yep! The train has left the station! Always another train on the way, however!

 

Now, the fun stuff!
