PMC
Level 71 : Legendary Crafter
5,224
Greetings PMC members!

Unlike our usual method of adding new mods to our team, we have decided to branch out and use a new method to see who wants to be a part of our team, applications!

What does each mod do you ask?

Well, for the most part, they do as the name says.

Chat moderators moderate our chat, which is simply removing messages and issuing warnings when they violate the rules. You do not need to be active in chat, however it's highly encouraged that you are, just so it doesn't seem dead.

Forum moderators moderate the recently updated forums. This would include removing spam, moving threads to correct sections, and deleting posts that violate our rules and issuing warnings. If you have moderated forums before, this is no different.

Site moderators moderate the rest of the site as a whole, including the mod section, projects, skins, and the like. This includes accepting greenlights (content which acquires approval before being publicly visible), responding to reports on content which violate the rules, and overall being a helpful user to the site.

In order to apply, please select the appropriate application for the section you wish to apply to. You can submit an application for all 3 sections, however please only submit 1 app per section. Please select the section that you feel you would do best with and that you are the most active in.

Some guidelines for applications:
- We are looking for quality, not quantity. Be thoughtful in your responses and provide examples to help your application.
- Do not ask for the status of your application. This will decrease your chances.
- Do not bribe, manipulate, or otherwise attempt to alter or coerce other moderators to help promote your application. This will result in your application being denied and possible further actions. Cheating will not get you far.

We will inform you of the status of your application after it has gone through our internal processing. We will not disclose any discussion that occurs on your application, so do not ask any moderator.

We thank you for your time and any applications that you submit!

Hello,
If we are not accepted as a Moderator, will we receive a message?

EDIT: If we do receive a message, will it state our reasons for being denied along with how we could have improved it?

Yes you will receive a message.
And no, it will most likely say: "Sorry, we're not accepting applications at this time. Thank you for showing your interest in becoming a moderator." Or something along the lines of that.

Because I have just joined Planet Minecraft, would that mean I wouldn't have much of a chance in becoming a moderator? I mean, how does the system work?
This seems fun, but I don't wanna be a mod, too much responsibility.

I mean, on the one hand I'd consider applying for forum mod, I feel like I could do a reasonably good job there. However, considering I've been banned from the forums, I feel like my chance of success would be abysmal. Having seen the amount of warnings I've acquired, I wouldn't blame the app being completely denied.
Depends. When were you banned? When was your last warning? The moderators can be forgiving if your past infractions were long ago enough, and you’ve shown that you have improved considerably. Many moderators were huge rule breakers before they were promoted.

Hey! Sorry, but one more question! How often do you have to be online for and what if you had past mistakes?
  • Ralex

There's no real requirement, but it'd be nice to at least see weekly activity, even just 30 minutes a day would be beneficial

Past mistakes are stuff we look at to decide. If we think you've learned and moved on, then it's not bad. If it looks like you're not learning, then probably not.
Ok thank you :D

Depends. Read these three descriptions from the thread:

Chat moderators moderate our chat, which is simply removing messages and issuing warnings when they violate the rules. You do not need to be active in chat, however it's highly encouraged that you are, just so it doesn't seem dead.

Forum moderators moderate the recently updated forums. This would include removing spam, moving threads to correct sections, and deleting posts that violate our rules and issuing warnings. If you have moderated forums before, this is no different.

Site moderators moderate the rest of the site as a whole, including the mod section, projects, skins, and the like. This includes accepting greenlights (content which acquires approval before being publicly visible), responding to reports on content which violate the rules, and overall being a helpful user to the site.
Mods help checking unappropiate uploads, offensive posts/chat and that kind of stuff, and also checking reports

Over usage of caps on the forum moderator application?

"Why Should You Be a Mod" should be: "Why should you be a mod", right?

Ours don't. Anyone can apply regardless of age.
Thats cool. :D As long as they're mature xd
yeah they do
on most minecraft servers to become a staff its 16 or 18+. Thats all I know but Im not sure for pmc. I am sure that they dont want an 8 year old moderating though

My theory is that PMC as a site acknowledges that at the very least, it is difficult to note someone's true age even from their voice at times. Even if you know their real age, people can act a very wide range of ages. A 16 year old may well be far more capable than someone twice that age...
Nitwick yeah I agree but I believe thats not entirely true for me ;,)

It's a matter of perspective and circumstance. Often, age can be a good indication of maturity, especially at the younger end of the spectrum. Just depends on how you, and you alone operate :p

I remember Cyprezz or someone saying that age doesn't matter but maturity does.
That's true.
Hi! I was just wondering if there are any requirements for applying? :) <3

the part "Please select the section that you feel you would do best with and that you are the most active in" is a little confusing, so we can submit one for all three but you would like us to do just the one we are most active on is what you are saying?

Just noting for a possible grammar mistake.


"- Do not ask for the status of your application. This will decrease your changes."



Shouldn't changes be corrected to chances? It would make more sense, however I do not know if it was intentional or not. If it was, then ignore and/or remove this post.
