Short Questions

In One Paragraph, please explain why you would like to become a Forum Moderator at Colossal Gaming?:
Well, I try my best to give back to the community I spend all my time on- that's why I became moderator to begin with. I want to do the same with forum moderator. Since I spend most of my time checking the forums and reading the posts on it, I have noticed a few things. The forum moderator group includes only 3 members. To be able to successfully run the forums, there needs to be a larger and more active team. There are many instances where a user has broken a forum rule or is just generally hostile towards another user but sadly nothing gets done due to the lack of forum moderators. Clarence is one of the few active forum moderators and does a great job at keeping our forums clean, but he should not have to do it alone. I aim to assist Clarence and other forum moderators with keeping the forums safe. As much as we love buying cheap viagra, someone needs to remove these scam links and keep everything under control.

In One Paragraph, please describe how you would make an impact on the Forums as a Moderator?:
As stated above, I am almost always refreshing and checking the forums. I would make an impact by being one of the couple of active forum moderators that keep the other users of the forums safe. I will also enforce the rules a little more, I am noticing more and more people breaking (or even unintentionally breaking) the forums rules and I will try my best to inform those people and keep the forums clean. I have had experience staffing servers in the past and could use this expertise to help out others on the forums.


Scenario 1: Image

You are scrolling through the introductions and you find "Spiderwizard's Introduction". You notice some activity on this users post. "Spiderwizard" has not yet responded/seen the replies.

Question 1: As a Forum Moderator, how should/do you react?
Firstly, I would inform Spiderwizard on the replies on his post. I will make sure he understands the kind of activity on his thread and ask his opinion on them. For all I know, they could be his friends all in on a joke that he is ok with. But, even if he knows/is ok with these replies, I will inform the people who have made these replies and ask them to tone it down. If a user sees these kind of toxic or hateful replies on a thread, they may feel like they can do the same and follow in their example. I will edit the replies to make sure that they are no longer toxic and inform the people who have made the replies on my actions. However, if Spiderwizard is not ok with these replies, I will delete the replies and inform the people who made them and give them a warning- they have clearly broken the rule of respecting other players. If they have been warned in the past, I will give them a fitting punishment.

Scenario 2: Image

You find this Post in the "MilitaryRP - General Discussion" section. Avary has not approved this post and is most likely uncertain a picture of him has been uploaded to the forums.

Question 2: As a Forum Moderator, how should/do you react?
One of the rules clearly states: "Do not leak private or personal information without a User's consent". Similarly to the last response, I would start off by firstly asking Avary himself if he has seen this post. I need to keep him informed of the posts and/or my actions. I would then continue with removing the post and banning the user for a short period for leaking personal information. If they feel the ban is unjust or want further confirmation, they can contact me through teamspeak or another method (such as steam).

Scenario 3: Image

You find this post in the "Off-Topic" Forum section.

Question 3: As a Forum Moderator, how should/do you react?
This post in question looks like a spam bot account and is violating the rule of posting pornographic material (if the link is true), otherwise they are posting a fishy link or scam link. Seeing as this user only has 1 post on the forums, that being this post, I can assume that the user is a bot and not a person. I would remove the post from the forums and immediately ban the account. I will make sure however that if it is indeed a user and not a bot they can contact me further and discuss what they have done wrong and/or their punishment.

Thank you for reading my application, I have not been a forum moderator in the past so any feedback is appreciated. I have done my best to answer the scenarios properly, but if there are any mistakes or issues feel free to tell me (in a constructive way) in the replies section.

+1 Echo is a really nice player, he answers tickets and players requests in game on military RP so I believe he can and will answer/help any forum users. Good luck Echo!
