Forums - Website Topics - ANNOUNCEMENT (2 of 2) - VGChartz is Recruiting New Moderators

Yeah, we are getting there. Some stuff has happened which slowed things a bit. Shouldn’t be too much longer.

So, it's the end of April

They're working hard on my rejection.  Trying to let me down easy.  Much harder than they expected. 



I'd like to thank all applicants for their patience. We are working towards having these done as soon as we can. We've had some things come up here and there that has slowed the process, but we're getting there!



                                                                                                                                                           

Another Bump.

Still working on things, everyone. Miguel's had some stuff going on the last few weeks and that is something that none of us could help. I anticipate this week for action, though. Just hang on a little longer!



                                                                                                                                                           

Ohhh, I'm looking forward to this.

What?



                                                                                                                                                           

First you ask for new mods on April 1st, yeah right... Damn I wish I had seen this thread on April 1st, I would have applied with the most crazy and outrageous application you'd ever see.

Second, you do need new mods eventually so I hope you get people that do not hold grudges against other people and therefore could abuse their position. I have personally had convos here and seen replies to my posts which, had that person been a mod or will that person be a mod eventually, I totally can see myself being perma-banned one morning out of the blue and without any appeal cause some people can hate you with a passion, especially when you deconstructed their arguments like you'd do a threadbare piece of cloth.

Third, I have been wondering how do you balance being a moderator and having opinions? I noticed mods don't get very passionate about their opinions, they almost stay out of having strong opinions and it gives a sense of neutrality which has its advantages of course but you still are humans with opinions aren't you? Which makes me sometimes wonder and suspect that moderators are bots...

EDIT: Why does it say announcement 2/2, what was announcement 1/2?

The 1/2 Thread was for the announcement of the Deputy Head Mods. 

Regarding Mods/Opinions/Permaban - Before anything like that would happen, the Head Mods would take a look. We are not going to just greenlight a Permaban unless you have truly done something terrible (or have a long history of infraction after infraction). Mods should do their best to be impartial, but they are people too and have those moments. We also have preferences and opinions, but there needs to be a time for posting and a time for Moderating. Newer Mods sometimes struggle with this, but in time, many improve. If we are making mistakes, more training will help. The new crew is going to see some changes to The Team that should benefit everyone (though I cannot disclose that here :P). Believe me, if we have Mods holding grudges, and it shows in their behavior, steps will be taken to correct it.

I am a firm supporter of three strikes, so one Mod hiccup is not going to mean a removal of said person from The Team. Plus, remember that you can contact one of the Head Mods (that's myself, Miguel, or Ryuu) should you have any issues with a Moderation or a Moderator. I cannot guarantee action against them (especially if it is found that the user was at fault and not the Mod), but it still helps us to understand where we goofed and how we can aim to do better. That is our commitment to the community and my personal goal for our Moderation Staff.

No worries. In April I've told everyone who asked me if the mod team can meet the deadline that it's not going to happen because the mod team never meets the deadline. You are right on schedule.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
