  • What is a Moderator to RPH?

On Roleplay Heaven, our moderators are the quick and decisive thinkers; the people who understand a situation and can help to resolve it before it spins haywire. They are the voice of reason in an otherwise chaotic argument and can be firm when maintaining the neutrality. A moderator is quick to adapt to any scenario and always will do his or her best to aid the community.

The administration exists here to serve the player base. Ideally, we strive to improve the output of quality role-play a player can provide in a typical in-character environment. This means that while a moderator is not expected to host role-plays or participate in them, we are first and foremost a role-play server and our duties are often associated with role-play. A moderator should be well-versed in Warcraft lore as well as the English language and should be willing to spectate or even moderate the main phase or other role-playing discrepancies as necessary.

The community will always look up to a moderator and expect him or her to be ready to act. Remember this!





The remainder of this thread was written by Richard Ashcroft. Our thanks to him for his hard work in putting it together!

Stage One: Questions

Be honest and try to meet word counts. Make sure your grammar is good here, it will be examined. Don't become daunted, and show us you at your best.

Main Character Name: the character that you will probably be seen the most on.

Account Name: the name you use to log on with.

How long have you been on the server?: this can be checked.

Activity?: how active can you be? Add your timezone and area in here, as well as any details you find relevant to your activity. E.g., school, work, holidays etc. Please think long term.

Have you ever had to deal with customers/players?: either in real life or on a server. Write a bit about it too, please - perhaps where it was, when it was and why you feel this can help you in RPH.

Do you have any referees?: perhaps a moderator, admin or player could vouch for you. This isn't really important, but it will be checked for falsehoods.

Write about your favorite period/subject of WoW lore (100 words or more): this could be a diverse range of things; racial lore, something controversial or something original! Don't be limited by your own preferences, and you can research these things!

Describe your favorite character, either yours or in lore (50 words or more): don't just focus on appearance or history. We would like a quick summary of the character on the whole, though don't be limited by word count.

What would you do differently about the server?: what can you provide for the server? What makes you an individual? What can you bring that no other moderator has brought? What can you change? Don't be generic here, and don't think about it too much. Simply say what you feel.

Write about yourself (100 words or more): give us an idea of who we'll be working with in your own words. Perhaps you'd like to include what other people have said about you. Write a few hobbies down maybe - we just want an idea of your personality.

b. less rules and less staff.
c. more rules and less staff.

Stage Three: Practical Work

Once your application is completed, it will be reviwed and you will be considered by the administration. This stage could include your guides, role-plays in the game and other helpful and role-play orientated activities that you do. Simple as that!

I'd like to say that failure to hit word counts shows a distinct lack of effort by any standard. A word count is a minimum, not a maximum. 100s and 50s aren't even much.
