We would prefer you don't do that as a normal user, so most likely the answer in that instance is no as well.

I'd love to be a moderator, but the whole idea of being too polite and have the power to ban people kinda bothers me. I think being a moderator could help me control my atittude, but then it would be a problem if I stepped out of the line. It would be worse if I find out people being too much idiots, I'm not very patient regarding that, I'd probably call infractions and bans on a hell lot of people.

It doesn't seem like it really matters from what I have seen, you can have a sloppy attitude and still be a mod around here. Just go for it.

Honestly if this wasn't X-Box I would have applied.

I don't want to moderate something I know nothing about.

Politeness is not equivalent to professionalism. Also, we 'normal' mods don't have the features to ban instantly whenever we feel like it.

There's the international forums if you know another language? ;)

Unfortunately I only know some basic spanish, so a big international mod-ship wouldn't be something I'd qualify for.

I know you can do it, Macaulyn. <3
Youre very knowledgeable on the forums both in game play and mythology, and can usually contribute alot to most conversations.
Worst case scenario, they turn you down. Whats the worst that can happen?

Hello there!

I'd like to ask you about the creation of the russian subforum. Is it possible? Can you do it that russian players use its forum branch for any questions and etc. I could be as a moderator, and help them here. It will be very useful.

Thank you for your reply!

We are going to be making a Russian subforum if I'm not mistaken.

Do you primarily play Xbox and/or fluently speak Spanish or Russian?

I've sent a few days ago an application to become a moderator of the Russian subforum. I'm a native russian speaker, who has been promoting Smite among russian community more than 2 years. I could help you as best as I can ^^ Waiting for the answer.

No, but it has been stated that I don't need to own an Xbox to be a mod for their forums.

Being a mod would be fun, but we gotta realize we'd have to hold ourselves to a higher maturity standard. I'm sure our mods sometimes die inside because they have to remain civil.

SeventhArchon
10-21-2015, 11:00 AM
I would actually have to be serious on the forum.
I don't feel like it :p

Loulina
10-22-2015, 09:00 AM
I can be serious. really. but what will be the reward for that? people will like me less than they do because mods are authority figures..who ever wants to do such a thing. I better be a mom instead of that.afterall you cant hug a forum once in a while.it should worth something after being a boring authority figure.hey wait a minute..perhaps..hmm

IrishPotato
10-22-2015, 10:51 AM
Doing our best to keep the forums as a stable and welcoming community is its own reward

Loulina
10-22-2015, 01:59 PM
of course, since you are irishpotato you can think that way.every character has their own idea of reward. i for example can handle a little instability for some amusement and surprise ;)
but if i am a mod it feels like there will be a internal conflict within me.should i be more a gamer or a mod? did i put an extra smiley there? lots and lots of insecurities.. i shouldnt have said or done that perhaps? i posted five times this months in vent thread what kind of a mod am i?i suspended the poor person, he is probably very angry or upset now. yeah things like these. what should be the reward for all these? i am not sure. i am kinda expensive. both insecure and expensive. lol. whatever that is.Also i like being personal. mods need to be a little distant.
Anyway, I hope forum finds the best of mods.

IrishPotato
10-22-2015, 02:01 PM
Well there isn't a reward at all. Literally.

Also we're people and players first, moderators second. We're allowed to be personal and friendly, and don't need to be distant. Distant != Professionalism.

saying funny things allowed. i read the forum code of conduct just now. nothing against it. it is a shame that i read it after months just now while applying. if everybody is like me this means i have a very correct campaign slogan :D everybody should be moderator.

but i applied for a language subforum. then...first...i can set up my own kingdom there.i make everbody in it moderators then i will invade other subforums.hm.sounds like a nice plan.i liked it.

Being a mod strikes me as too similar to being a prefect at my old college. You have power over your peers despite not necessarily having much better judgement. Maybe I'm just a little anarchist in the making...

Also, I've seen too many threads get closed without agreeing with the decision, so I probably wouldn't make a good fit. And I'm not always on the forums. Pass.

I think they pick the mods well, they do their best to remain indifferent when an argument erupts, and they handle it well.

Maybe I am not in a position to be able to say this but, if I was in the position to say yes or no to your request, I would almost straight away so no due to the fact that your 'application' is not only a sentence but childish in nature. Those are not exactly sought after qualities for a moderator.

Of course, it is good to entertain some joyfulness sometimes, even in serious situations, so perhaps I am in the wrong here.

Good luck as a moderator if you do happen to get accepted, though. :)

More or less it seems that they haven't gotten the right applications yet considering :3
I don't play smite on even though I had a beta code when it came out, still have it was a payed for key might give content and tags if I use it idk. . .

Any who My Spanish is sub par and seeing that I regretfully don't play the xbox sub I didn't put an app. in my self, so it's hard to say where they are in the process.

Closing thread. Everyone is still welcome to apply - But for the most part we've already decided on who we'll bring on to the Xbox and International forums mod teams.

Also - For those who chose alternative International forums, and put English - Thanks.
