01-31-2014, 04:20 PM
I am very excited to announce our newest community program, the Moderator Program! We have been working hard to come up with an application for interested community members to fill out for their chance of becoming a HEX forum mod. Your responsibilities will include monitoring the interchange of the community and making decisions regarding content and the direction of threads and moving discussions from one section to another to keep topics organized. If the tone of a forum becomes hostile or starts to move in the direction of personal attacks, you will have the discretion to lock the discussion to prevent heated, interchanges. He may also be able to hide discussions he deems unworthy of further discussion.

This is your community so who better to moderate it than dedicated members within it. Keep in mind, you will be asked to not only moderate our forums but our Twitch.tv channel as well. We are looking for mods from different time zones and with various skill sets so don’t be afraid to apply. Let me go over the sections you will be asked to complete on the application.

General Questions
These questions cover all the basics. Please fill out your Name, Time Zone, and Education. At the end tell us a little about yourself, don’t be shy we want to get to know you.

Experience Questions
In this section we want to know what experience you have with moderation. Please answer the questions and give us as much detail in your skill set with both forums and Twitch.tv

Example Posts
This is an exercise where we give you 3 example posts and ask you to moderate them. Keep in mind, in these examples you have ultimate power you can do anything you wish to these posts. Please tell us how you would moderate these posts and why.

Game Rules Questions
Many bugs that are submitted to our forums are simply misunderstandings of the rules. In this section we want to get an idea of your knowledge of the rules. Read these questions carefully and answer them the best you can. We aren't looking for a master of the rules so don’t stress out if you’re not sure how to answer. At the end of the day we are looking for a moderator not a rules guru.

Writing Skills
In this section we ask you to choose a post, paste it, and then write a response to that post. Our goal here is to get a taste of your writing skills. So take your time choose a interesting post and have fun!
