We know the forums are one of the largest and most important
homes for any community. They provide us with important feedback that we (The
Community team) make sure find their way to the right people. They also provide
you guys with a place to talk about our games as well as other random cool
stuff and we want to make sure you can do this in a fun, relaxed and civilised
So... We’ve spoke about this a bit in the past and we know it’s something a lot of you want, we’ve been a bit apprehensive in the past, we were worried about segregating you guys and creating some weird tiered hierarchy feeling to the boards. That’s not the case, we just feel like it’s time to give you guys more of a say with how the forums work.
Last year we had a full forum revamp, and as you can probably tell from the ‘beta’ tag, we’re not finished with that just yet. We’ll save that for another time – instead, today we’re going to talk about forum moderators, and the fact that we need one.
So what does a forum moderator actually do? Well, we’re specifically looking for someone that’s passionate about our games, can act rationally in online discussions and is of course familiar with our forum rules and capable of enforcing them when needs-be.
There are two ways we’ll be looking for potential mods. From those that want to be one, and from those that think they know the right person for the job. Here’s how to apply either way:
Applications close Monday January 19th and we’ll let you know the end result shortly after. Just to be clear though, this isn't a 'most votes wins' kind of deal, Lee and myself will be going over all the names and picking who we feel fits the role best. This could be just one of you, or it could be a few.
2015 is going to be an interesting and exciting year for us and we’re going to make sure the forums are looked after and focused on more than ever.
