How often do you use the forums?
I use the Forums every day and even on my phone when I cannot access my PC. Its rare that I dont check the forums daily
Have you ever received a verbal or recorded warning on the forums?
I have had posts deleted but never have I been personally warned to my knowledge.
Do you have any previous experience with InvisionZone Forum Software?
I was previously a Forum mod on the old forums and I managed it quite fine so I can learn quick.
Do you have any previous Forum Staff experience?
Yes I do I was a forum staff in 2018 and I would like to think I handled it rather well.
How much time do you spend on the forums a day?
I always have in open when i play the server so I'd say about 3-4 hours a day. I'll even check in the mornings/late nights
Have you applied for or currently hold any other staff positions in this community?
I am currently a developer on the Clone Wars Server.
Why do you want to be a Forum Moderator for Gateway Gaming?
Personally I always liked the using the forums and I enjoy staffing so I feel could combine the two into a super mix.
But seriously I find that there are times questionable or irrelevant content gets posted in the wrong areas for the sake of a bad meme or "quality post" which quite frankly Irks me. The Forums should be a place where we can all enjoy it and have fun however Its not fair to people who post reports and extend their RP or write up big informational posts just to be bombarded with people who dont know what defines an irrelevant post, which causes some of these posts to stay and set the idea that the thread is not a serious thing. This is not me saying the Forum staff aren't doing the proper job but I just feel I could help keep a watchful eye on our Forums.
1. A group of 4 users from another community come onto the forums and start antagonizing the members of the community with hate speech, how do you deal with this group?
First off I would delete the posts the Members made and then proceed to message them all with the reason "Hate Speech is not tolerated within this community, continue and there will be punishment, please refer to the Forum Rules for guidance." If they decide to continue I would have no choice to ban them as obliviously if they do not intend to use the forums properly they should not have the right to post, I would then see if I could find out the community they hail from and alert the staff within that community via steam or other means available.
2. An ex-staff member has re-joined the community recently, they become active on the forums but start behaving in a somewhat undesirable manner (slandering or being abusive to other users in the shoutbox, etc.) How do you deal with the ex-staff member?
The rules apply to everyone regardless of rank so I would delete their messages and message them "The recent content you have posted on the forums contains abusive and disrespectful content, [INSERT QUOTE OR EXAMPLE OF ABUSIVE MEDIA] as a former staff you should know the rules so I will not warn you again" if they choose to ignore the warning I would ban them from the forums for 24 hours, if they decide to continue upon serving the time the ban limit would be increased and they would be put on a watch list (following their activity on the forums)
3. A user has posted one of his YouTube videos of the Clone Wars server in the "Regiment Hub" forum, Is this the proper area for the thread? If not where should it be moved to?
If the content was roleplay/relevant I would leave it be, for example a video log of an event or regiment training video (example: how to defuse a bomb in the EOD Section.) If the video is not relevant to roleplay it would be moved to the Video Sharing Section, I would then proceed to post (POST HAS BEEN MOVED TO VIDEO SHARING SECTION, REASON DUE TO LACK OF RELEVANCE IN PRIOR SECTION)
Thank you very much for reading my app, please give appropriate feedback and that would be greatly appreciated!
