  1. We have decided that we are going to be taking applications for new moderators.

    A moderator's job is helping new people and reminding users of the rules. Although they have the ability to kick/ban/mute players they do not have other powers such as spawning items or flying.

    If you would like to apply, go to this thead.
  2. I'd like to add that helping out as a moderator is more of a job that a privelige, and it's not a status to be sought after.

    ...it means work, and little else.

    As a moderator, you will have less time to actually play the game, and you will be spending more time dealing with issues that come up and helping people get oriented.

    If you don't want a job that will require your time and effort, I would advise that you don't apply.

    If, on the other hand, you think you would like to spend some time helping out instead of playing the game the whole time you are on, then apply away. :)

    Having good moderators who enjoy the tasks involved will help keep the Empire an awesome place... and maybe even make it a more awsome place. :)

  3. if you could post when your going to announce the new moderators that would be awesome! thanks:)
  4. It prob won't be all at once, I have a bit of code to finish up, then we will be promoting moderators as we feel we need them. We will probably start with 1 or 2 and see how it goes :)
  5. FINALLY!!!! WOOT!

    application is sent in :) if we are denied are we gonna recieve a dear john we are sorry to inform you that we do't want you letter?

  6. ...that could end up being a whole lot of 'dear John' letters. I think that would consume too much of the admins' valuable time.

    I don't know, I'd rather have Justin working on clever code for the server myself. :)
  7. i know i was just asking lol seemed like a good question at the time lol
  8. We probably won't write dear john letters because picking moderators will be an ongoing process :) When we need a new one we will look at the pool of applicants and pick who we would think would be the best match. If someone doesn't get picked right away I hope they don't take it personally, lots of factors go into our choices :)
  9. well lets hope you choose the best choices then(i know you will!) :)
  10. I love the idea of being a moderator. But alas, I believe I haven't been here long enough to qualify.

    I hope our future mods are fair and just in their duties.

  11. I admire your thoughtful assessment of the situation and your humility. :)

    Those are qualities that make for a good moderator by the way.
  12. Thank you, Dark_Liz :)
  13. As a good starting point we have picked Dark_Liz and AusQB to be our firs moderators. From this point on we will be continually looking to see if we need more moderators, when we need more we will look at the submitted applications. Please don't take offense if you are not picked, it is not because we don't like you, we had a TON of applicants and our number one concern is doing what is best for the community. Thanks to everyone for the overwhelming support in this process.

  15. I had a feeling you two would be picked! You're both very resourceful, thoughtful, friendly and (most importantly) fair. It makes me happy and proud to know that you'll be our moderators!
