It’s not really a particular action(s) that disqualifies a person (having been silenced/banned doesn’t mean you can’t become a mod). It’s more about how you act all-throughout. Things like your behavior, habits, the way you react to things, and how you deal with them.

I strongly agree with you, Cmurda. Especially #6 : “Don’t ask to be a moderator,” you have to show that you’re capable of becoming a moderator. Take action, help around the community, and just be patient the whole time. Patience is a virtue, right? Thank you for posting this forum, it was a great help to all of us. :3

Is There a age group to be a mod? :P

As long as you’re mature enough, it doesn’t matter how old or young you are.

…Why the hell was I moderated? >.<

I posted this message in suggestions – but moderators (current and future) should seriously consider it.


You seriously need to do something about the disgusting amount of vulgarity and pornography that goes on in the chats on this site. You also seriously need to have moderators who will actually do their job on the chats on this site.

I have had dozens of times now where disgusting individuals and entire groups in rooms have sexually harassed and cajoled others or myself in the rooms, and it is never appropriate or respectful or funny. And that doesn’t even include the people joking repeatedly about rape, murder and sodomy, and other such subjects.

99% of the time, moderators in the rooms themselves will do nothing regarding the behaviors. I have brought this up before on the site repeatedly, and the points have been totally ignored to date.

I have also tried every technique in the book across many chat rooms to dissuade, confront, or politely try to get people to stop the behaviors. Asking someone politely to stop should not garner a response of people disgustingly offering you their genitalia; yet that is the standard response on Kong. And no, muting alone is not a simple solution, especially in multi-player games which depend upon interaction in the chats for gameplay – since muting everyone participating in the chat will result in an inability to play the game.

And no, this is not standard for the internet for the people that like to make that argument. I have been “online” for 22 years and this sort of behavior is only recent due to accommodating places like this one which serve to condone and almost encourage the behaviors.

If Gamestop and Kongregate want the site to be ruled and dominated by dirty-minded young boys with their minds in the gutter who refuse to act civil even when asked politely, then fine. You will never do well with clean-minded people, and you will generally fail to gain the female demographic which now makes up almost half of all gamers. I want nothing to do with it, and I will encourage the same for everyone I know through games on the internet.

Erile,

I agree that such chat should not be and is not condoned. However, in the defense of the moderators, particularly in game rooms, keep in mind that they may be tabbed over in their main room or simply very focused on the game itself. Game rooms are a particular challenge to moderate, and I fear that the .. less mature elements have figured that out. There are main chat rooms where such behavior is not condoned by the rooms community and is generally moderated. Keep looking! Try The Village or Sloth or .. any other suggestions for cleaner than average rooms, guys?

Meh, I wish it also described how is it to be a moderator. Many people think mods are more “free” than normal users but they are wrong: mods got even more rules to follow than normal users. Saying what is really a moderator to users will make 90% of those that wants to be mod not want to become mods anymore. That’ll make mod nominating much easier for admins.

Indeed moderators have more rules when compared to normal users. All the rules/Guidelines can be seen here.

Strange.
They must have deleted it, or made it so that regular users can’t see it.

I believe that the link needed some updating, so they just took it down until then.

I’m pretty sure asking on your first day is a good start.

Note: This is a guideline thread of becoming a moderator, not volunteering billboard. As a matter of fact, asking to be moderator hinders your chances of becoming one

I actually did ask to be a mod a few times, they tend to look past it if you did not know about the process.
