Hey guys, So im a mod on a server and sometimes a bunch of idiots instantly ask to be mod as soon as they join!
Heres some steps to follow to be a mod.
1. Play on the server for at least 3 weeks. Make sure its a server where a modspot is open and that you play often.
2. Don't constantly ask to be mod.
3. Be friendly and helpful in chat but there's a thing as being too friendly :/
4. Build cool stuff! Building things for the server is what mods do, so show off your architectural skills!
5. After a while an Admin will most likely give you mod!
6. If for some reason you didn't get mod keep trying and show your dedication to the server.
Thats my tutorial so I don't want to see any one trolling about why they can't be mod.

Bot to be the downer, but as a server admin, bullet two on this list is really the only thing I can agree on.

One- Altouhgh yes, I do look for players that have been with the server, the amount of time a player has been on is not what I look for: it's dedication to the server.

Two- Agreed on, like I said.

Three- Friendly is nice and all, but there is such a thing as "too friendly". You want to be friendly and helpful, but without making it apparent your trying to gain a staff position.

Four- I could care less what you build. Hand to god, you could build a little dirt shack and call it a castle, and I wouldn't care. I'm looking for dedicated friendly players, not architects.

Five- Not really a tip..

Six- This one is the most...just..well, stupid point of them all. Like I said blearily: I'm looking for dedicated players to my server, not power-hungry PMC scouters.

And just as a heads up to people who think "Oh boy! This guy just listed what he wants in a mod! I better join his server!". Keep in mind I do check PMC, and we are not looking for mods.

Thanks for your comments but i disagree,
One- Isn't time on a server pretty much dedication?
Two-Glad you agree
Three-Yeah I assumed people wouldn't take friendly as constantly posting if there is anything they can help with. :/
Four-if a moderator does not build what do they do for the server?
Five-Felt it was needed
Six-I feel this is pretty important but people shouldn't constantly change servers just change if a mod spot is filled.

Not to be rude, but I'm a server admin. If anyone should be writing a blog on this, it's a server admin. But going back to the banter that is this discussion:

One-If paired with six, no. I've been "on a server" for eight months now, but have only logged 40 hours total on it. Being on a server a month, but only playing say..two hours the whole month? Not dedicate to the server.

Two-n/c

Three- People can pose as friendly, and over doing it makes it seem that way. Same thing goes for being helpful.

Four- A moderator (as defined by Wiki) is a person given special powers to enforce the rules on an Internet forum, newsgroup, blog or game. With that said, I want someone who follows, adheres, and will make sure others adhere to those rules, while being able to do so tastefully. I say again: building skills in a moderator is pointless.

Five- Doesn't the title of the blog cover that bullet...?

Six- Again, if someone is going from server to server looking for a mod spot, that shows to me the person is power hungry and wants the perks of being a moderator. Their not there to help.

I run my own server and I must agree, simply quitting the server if you do not get mod doesn't show dedication at all haha.

If anything, your comment is more helpful than the blog itself.

I did comment on this saying "Sad, but I can see it being try". I don't know if it got deleted, or my computer freaked out..either way, posted again. If it's gone again, I think the first happened.
