TRIAL MOD SIGN-UP STATUS: OPEN
Hello Guest, and welcome to the Moderator Sign-Ups thread! When sign-ups are open, this is where members can apply to become moderators in order to help keep the forum running smoothly. Before applying, however, be absolutely sure that this is something you want to commit to, as you'll likely have to sacrifice some RP availability due to the current state of the site. Additionally, make sure you read the criteria and guidelines for moderators and "Trial Mods" below so that you know exactly what is expected of you and how the process will work.
Even if you've applied previously, feel free to submit a new application. Due to this new system, candidates are more likely to be chosen as long as they don't have too many "black marks" on their record.
STAFF APPLICANT CRITERIA

The criteria for staff applicants is broken down into three categories. Activity, Knowledge, and Communication. So long as an applicant is able to meet all three of these criteria and there is an open position, they will be granted "Trial Mod" status. But before we get into these criteria, lets go over the concept of this "Trial Mod" as it differs from how trial mods were handled in the past.
- Trial Mods:
Activity: Staff whom never log in aren't very useful to the forum. Thus, a minimum level of activity is expected of new staff applicants. In order to apply for staff you must log into the forum and post something at least three days out of the week on average. In addition, you must have maintained this level of activity for at least one month. (Note: Mandatory/unavoidable absences are fine as long as we're notified of these situations ahead of time, whether directly or through a departure thread.)
Knowledge: There are a lot of Rules on US and staff is expected to abide by them. If a staff member doesn't know a rule by heart, they should at the very least know where to find it quickly. A short 5 question test will be given to all applicants at a time convenient for both staff and the applicant. This test can be taken via the chat box, skype, or PMs. But it must be completed in real time and has a time limit of thirty seconds per question. In addition to the general information, be sure to check the descriptions on the Staff Page for the section you wish to join so you know exactly what's expected of you.
Communication: It is vital that staff members are able to communicate ideas and concepts clearly. They must be capable of writing complete sentences and proper spelling. However, they must also be capable of communicating in a professional manner. No l33t speak, excessive cursing, rampant use of slang, or history of violent outbursts. If an applicant is known to frequent any of these traits, they must clean up their act and go a full month without any incident before any applications will be accepted. While you're not expected/obligated to be friends with every staff member, you're expected to be civil, especially when there are disagreements. Additionally, we primarily use Skype to communicate (voice communication is not required), but the Staff Lounge is the main place used when discussing site updates as it's the best medium for communicating these types of ideas.
If you'd like to apply, please reply to this thread with the following form filled out:
[b]Name:[/b] User and/or Real Name
[b]Skype Account:[/b] Most Staff Deliberations and Discussions occur over this form of communication.
[b]Availability:[/b] How often are you on, or will be on in the next week to the foreseeing months?
[b]Quiz time/method:[/b] When and how do you want to take the mandatory knowledge quiz? (Optional if you've been a staff member recently and simply wish to rejoin.)
[b]Philosophy of Staff:[/b] What should the top priorities of staff always be?
[b]Recommendation:[/b] Name any other people you would like to see on the team, and why.

|For this first round, we're only going to be accepting 2 trial mods maximum for each section (with room for a universal mod) to avoid putting too much work on the existing moderators' shoulders. If there are more applications than we have slots to fill, we'll simply pick up the excess when more spots are available.|

|Name: Hiruzen / Captain Konoha|
Skype Account: Rather complicated since it was linked to my Facebook, but most people have it already, so it should not be that hard to distribute.
Availability: I honestly have no idea, I tend to balance my free time with college and my job at the elementary school rather well, so I am usually either on US or on Skype.
Quiz time/method: Anal [Skype or PMs or whatever is fine.]
Philosophy of Staff: To make sure the site remains and so the members of the site can keep doing what they came here to do, make progress and RP.
Section: Creations [or Universal]
Recommendation: One of my preferences has always been having Ruka and Josi on staff, seeing as one handles Evaluations and the other handles Creations really well. Aside from that, I was a fan of having Mugen on staff too, but since I don't think he has ever been on staff, I think Daedalus would make a good addition. He tends to tinker with Fuuinjutsu and Weaponry a lot, and I don't think we have a lot of people who focus solely on things like that without the addition of Ninjutsu. As far as Creations goes, I think that in itself would be a fair addition.

|What would be a good time/times (time zones lol) for the quiz? It'll be easier to get it done in the next day or two if I know when is good (we're in different time zones and I have a horrible sleep schedule, so my timing is typically terrible).|

Putting out a general roll call to anyone who greatly enjoys reading the topics of your fellow RPers, we implore you to at the very least apply for the Evaluations Team and give being a member of staff a try. If you don't like it, no harm, no fowl, but if you do then we would be more than happy to have you.

Skype Account: bab.bee
Availability: Once I am done with this semester's exams (less than a week), I will be available pretty much daily and at any time. With the exception of a trip during summer and any possible issues that may occur out of the blue, I can guarantee that my activity will remain at a high standard.
Quiz time/method: Skype, whenever I am told.
Philosophy of Staff: My aim is to offer as much contribution to the forum as possible, be it in actual mod work or through my input and opinions. It is essential that things keep running so that the forum can regain and maintain its active member base.
Section: Creations / Temporary.
Recommendation: I do not have anyone in mind.
