    Okay, so there have been many, many people breaking the rules when they post a Moderator Request, so I just want to outline them all in this thread as well as answering some common questions.


    Rules:

    1. Don't make more than one application at a time, we're not saying that if you get denied you can NEVER, EVER, EVER MAKE ONE EVER AGAIN! But please just wait like 2 Months and make a new, better one. DON'T make a new one the next day.

    2. Don't hate on other people's application, if you don't think it's good it's best to just leave it and let a Moderator deal with it.

    3. Don't backseat moderate on people's applications, don't say if they're denied, feel free to make polite suggestions but don't be rude.

    4. ALWAYS, use the format (http://squadcraft.net/threads/new-moderator-application-format.11715/)

    5. Don't ask staff if your application has been looked at or why it was denied, it will lower your chances of being accepted and it will tick off staff.

    6. Do NOT copy other people's applications. We will find out.

    7. Do not Lie. We will find out.



    Tips:

    1. LOCKED = DENIED

    I cannot stress this enough, look, learn and move on.

    2. On a calmer note, remember to add LOTS of detail and make sure to use legitimate points: Not like "I recrd videoz on da squdcraft pls guve me mod" or "i haz play for lng time lyke 4 yrs giv me mod."

    3. Don't sound cocky, obviously you are selling yourself to be a Moderator but don't make yourself sound arrogant.

    4. Be nice, if someone comments some constructive criticism don't rage at them, just thank them and move on. If a Moderator denies your application don't rage at them or blame them, they're only doing their job.

    5. Just overall make yourself look good, mature and worthy of being a moderator.

    7. One thing people don't always understand: A really good application won't get you mod. It's your application combined with your ingame behavior, activity and reputation. I can write a big 3 page application (I'm good at English) but if I'm a bad and annoying on the server or no one has ever heard of me, then I have no chance.

    FAQ:

    My Mod app has been locked without a reply, why?
    We don't have time to reply to every Moderator Application and sometimes they're not even worth replying to so understand that at busy times we can't always reply. Also, we do get a lot of Hate sometimes when we deny peoples Mod Apps so we don't always want to reply because we do get hate and we don't really want that.

    Do you actually read Mod Apps?
    Yes, we read every mod app, good and bad.

    My Mod app has been locked and denied so I cannot edit and improve it!
    You were denied once, I doubt editing will help.

    I hope you take everything on this thread into consideration.

    On behalf of all the Staff Team,

    Thanks.

    Is this moderator application thing going to be open forever? Because in my opinion moderators should only be selected if needed. Why have more than you need? But congrats on mod, George.

    I think we should have about 1-2 mods at the most online at a time. And like 5 for each main time zone.

    We don't want the server to be overrun with mods or they will probably get slack if other mods are doing the moderating.

    I couldn't agree with you more. I'm worried right now a couple of mods are already slacking.

    I don't think we need to worry about that yet. I hope not.

    I'm not sure. Sometimes you have to address a problem before it expands.
