Moderator Application Guide

Before making an application, please read and check if you meet all the requirements
and follow the template that's provided below.

If you don't meet all the requirements it will result in an instant decline from the Senior Staff!

  • You must be 15 years old to apply. (If we find out you lied in your application it may cause in an immediate decline)
  • Make sure to shoot for between 1000-1500 words. (If you have less than 800 words it will cause an immediate decline)
  • Don't write multiple applications. (Please don't write multiple applications, we check them on a regular basis)
  • Don’t ask staff members to check your application. (Be patient after writing your application and don't message staff to review your application)
  • The title of the application must be: Username - Moderator Application

Tips & Tricks:
  • Try to keep your color scheme either black/white or very minimal. Too much color can look tacky and can be hard to read.
  • Try to be as grammatically correct as possible, not only does it look more professional, it also helps the senior staff better understand the points you are trying to make in your application.
  • Don’t change the format of the application, trying to do too much to your application can make it difficult to read and less appealing to the staff. Keeping everything as uniform as possible assists the senior staff with going through the many applications, allowing faster response times.
  • Try to personalize your answers as much as possible, we want to see how you would personally handle different situations and how you would fit into our team. While a professional and straightforward answer can work, we also like to see you relating any moderation experience with your answers.

Be honest. It’s best to be honest and upfront rather than to lie and be caught. Honesty is a key quality the senior staff look for when reviewing applications and interviewing.​
Lie on your application. Whether it’s about your age or experience, it will come to light eventually. Lying on your application will get your rejected or if you are accepted and we find out, demoted.​
Give detailed, thorough answers. Be sure to answer the question clearly and effectively, the senior staff want to see that you know what you are talking about.​
Give short, less detailed answers. We want to see that you are knowledgeable and eager to explain why you are qualified for the position, a short answer may not give us enough information to determine if you’re the best candidate.​
Show that you care about the server! We want to see applicants who genuinely care about the growth of the community.​
Trash talk the staff team. The staff all volunteer their free time whenever they can to make the community better, talking down about others will not look good on your application.​
Tell us about any experience you may have, though it isn’t required to have experience, it does help.​
Ask staff to check your application once you’ve submitted it. Asking for your app to be checked greatly reduces the chance of you being accepted. Be patient, the senior staff go through applications whenever they have the chance while also handling many other responsibilities.​
Re-Apply after a month if you are denied. We love to see people work to get better and try again, don’t give up!​
Send in another application less than a month after being denied. Your application will be instantly rejected.​
