    Moderator Applications

    Post by Benislav on Mon Jun 17, 2013 4:34 pm

    Hey, guys.  Nova's been going pretty strong for a while now, and I think it may be necessary to get some extra help around the server.  So, without further ado, here is the moderator application.

    Minecraft Username:

    Why do you want to be a Moderator?:


    And there it is.  Simply copy and paste it into a reply or message to have your application considered.  Please keep in mind that the moderator role is one that comes with a fair amount of responsibility.  While it's not the most formal affair, you should be prepared to pass fair judgment and negotiate any problems that occur on the server.  Thanks for your time!

    Edit for Clarification:
    Expected Responsibilities of Moderators

    • Spend a fair amount of time on the server.  There are no specific schedules or set periods of time that you must be on, because at the end of the day, the goal is to have you maintain a fun experience on the server.  That said, you should be able to put in at least a couple of hours a day (with necessary exceptions, naturally).
    • Know basic moderation commands such as /ban and /kick
    • Understand the server rules.
    • Be able to help anyone on the server who requires it, usually by answering questions.
    • Responsibly react to any negative situations that may arise on the server and be able to make calm decisions regarding what should be done.
    • Communicate well with players as well as other staff.
    • Enjoy your time on Nova!

    Can you list some of the specific duties and expectations you are looking for?

    By the way, the other forum sections are locked to administrators only.

    Minecraft Username:Duskblade95
    Time Spent on Nova:According to reddit, 23 days. Many, many hours.
    Time Zone: Eastern US
    How Often You Can be Active: Pretty much everyday. During the summer I'll be off and on all day long, except for the last week of July which I probably won't be on at all. Once school starts, I'll be on probably everyday from around 3pm to 9 or 10pm.
    Any Experience with Moderation: I've been in training for a moderator position on two prior servers but both shut down before I finished training. I do have a lot of leadership experience however. I was a marching band section leader last year and I am currently one of two band presidents. I also attended the RYLA 2013 leadership conference.
    Why do you want to be a Moderator?: I loved cobbleton and the people on it and now that Nova has been started and I'm beginning to see a lot of my old friends join, I'd like to help ensure the this server endures and grows. The Nova's community is amazing and I thoroughly enjoy spending time with everyone on the server so I want to make sure that our community expands and that Nova continues to be successful.

    Any Experience with Moderation:
    Why do you want to be a Moderator?: I am not really applying for the position of server mod. I would really just prefer to relax and play for a while. Plus, there are some good people that are logged on far more often than I am. 
    However, if you are looking for a forum moderator, I would be more than happy to help out with that since while I can't play MC at work, I can work on our forums.

    Time Spent on Nova: 1 month according to reddit
    Time Zone: EST
    How Often You Can be Active: Almost every day, however my internet provider takes their time when a storm wipes it out, so there might be gaps where I don't log on for 2-3 days
    Any Experience with Moderation: I'm an admin on a small vanilla snapshot server called HellStarMicro, however there's literally nothing I need to do there. Everyone is polite and nobody griefs/steals/spams or anything. 
    Why do you want to be a Moderator?: I dunno. It just seemed like I should apply.

    This isn't an application, but I feel that moderators shouldn't be able to fly. It's ridiculously overpowered and really takes away from the vanilla aspect of the server. I mean, the admins don't fly (to my knowledge), why should the mods be any different?

    Time Spent on Nova:
    I joined the first week and been playing very frequent since then

    Time Zone:
    CET

    How Often You Can be Active:
    Until 12th of August:
    - As much as I can, I believe I will be online more than I have recently due to having holidays. I can be expected online in the afternoons and the evenings.
    After 12th of August:
    - I start school so I won't be able to be as much online in the daytime, but I have the evenings free as well as the weekends. It's hard to say at the moment as I don't know my schedule yet and how many assignments I will get.


    Any Experience with Moderation:
    I've been moderator working my way to admin on the server I previously played on. I was moderator for roughly 6 months then ranked to admin. Still have my rank on the server though I have resigned and no longer "work" there.

    Why do you want to be a Moderator?:
    Being able to help out if its questions, issues or other matters. I know the server is getting along pretty good, but I also feel its growing with new players joining us and I'd like to be able to help out if more serious issues occur as well.


    Suggestion regarding moderator rank:
    - Use of duty plugin (http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/duties/) and a fly plugin (http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/fly/)
    Make it so the moderators can only use the fly command while working. The plugin is also nice in other ways, as it saves your location and items while on duty allowing you to work and when done and the off duty command is typed you get put out of fly, to the saved location and with the same items.

    - A ticket plugin, if no staff is online or all staff is busy players can submit tickets with questions or issues making the staff available to see this when logging in / see what order to help players in. Hkenneth, he is a bukkit developer, got a nice plugin he updated and made a web module for, he is willing to share.

    - Not sure if you have this, but an addition to kick/ban is a /warn function. If the offense is not serious enough for a ban or kick, give the player a warning. If the player keep up with these small offenses a staff can see it happening over time and have a talk with the player about it via pm's or mails or say enough is enough if the player still don't stop.

    Hey, could you post a new thread about this in the complaints forum? I just created it for such situations. If you could, post as much detail with your complaint. Thank you.
