quote AurigaeI LOVE this reponse! I totally agree with you. And yeah, I am a very helpful and friendly individual. For example, Sometimes when Mods aren't around to tell people that their pokemon are basically hacked, I kind of wanna warn them that they should tell the people that are interested in the pokemon that they are hacked. Just because I hate people insulting one another because they gave them a faulty and unlegit pokemon when it's supposed to be a friendly community. And in my part. That's one of the things I do to keep the peace. And I totally agree with you on that quote. Good things do come to those who wait.I realise you're getting a lot of information thrown at you pikachu8me, but I just wanted to say this. ^^
Coming from a former Pokemod, your best bet would to be focus your attention onto one forum in the Pokemon community rather than a massive range. I focused on the forum where I felt that I could be the most use and worked on my skills whilst I was there. When I got offered the position, I took it and gained skills from my two "mentors" to get me going on other forums.
The best thing to do is keep being a friendly & helpful individual and, as Lorx said, try not to memberate. I am a massive believer in "good things come to those who wait" and it is the same for moderator opportunities, also.
quote LorxYep. I know all those things and I don't believe I DON'T present myself well in my posts (Unless I feel like a jokester at the moment when it comes) And Yeah, It is a great start to build with. As for the "Discussion" part of the response... You're talking to the President of the Debate Club in High School ^___^ Hahaquote Pikachu8mePokemods come and go, as do games and our staffing needs for them.Avalith Oh thanks for the response! I was hoping for a Pokemon Forum to have a need for Moderators but I guess not Sigh...
Your best bet in the interim is to learn and grow as a member. If your goal is to moderate, great, may as well make sure you're prepared and are a solid candidate when the time comes. The wiki page for moderators lists being familiar with the sitewide rules, as well as being able to present yourself well in posts (able to effectively use markup appropriately, lack of txt speech and garbled nonsense, etc). Which is a good starting point to build with. From there it's about learning how to contribute and help the forums you visit. How to create and drive discussion is very important.
