WANT TO BE A BIGGER NERD?

:moonwalk :cowflex :hammertime :cheer :nelfkindance :cowdance :chicken :roar :trolldruid

With Cataclysm coming soon, and some of our normal mods unable to keep up the level of activity on the boards they once could, it is possible TMR will be looking for a new moderator sometime in the future.

New moderators are selected internally by the current moderators and is invitation only. The users we PM with an offer can either accept for decline the offer. The reason for this post is basically to reveal what we expect and look for in candidates, so that anyone interested, will know how to better their chances of an invite.

Our basic criteria are:

1. Maturity - We cannot have anyone modding who is easily worked up, childish, petty or unreliable. Good judgment, a friendly personality and a level head is what we need (I know, I know, you want to know: How did Teranin ever get in here?). No arrogant pricks.

2. Grammar and Spelling - This thing called the interweb is no excuse to butcher the English language. Capitals, full-stops, commas, paragraphing, formatting and spelling. Don't type like you are some kind of retard. Check your posts before you post them.

3. Activity - You do not need to be Wisp and check the boards every time you inhale, and post every time you exhale, but you do need a reasonable and consistent level of activity. We require a demonstrated depth of knowledge of Moonkin, obviously, and WoW in general, as well as evidence of a genuine desire to help others and not be an e-peen. The amount of time registered will also be a factor in determining if you are someone who is just passing through, or someone who is going to stick around.

We reserve the right to change our mind about all this at any point.

Remember consistency. If you suddenly start posting with proper English and saluting every time you see Foofy (she likes that, by the way), do not expect an invite tomorrow. Stick with it and you might see something in your PM box in a few months. That something may be a salmon from Teranin (whom you did not salute), or it may be an invite, who knows!?

ding ding ding, we have a winner.

This just in: Nerd is the new cool! So never you fear, women are finally learning that while their h.s. football captain sweetheart might seem like a big shot, he's likely to flop out of the real world when an average passing rate is worth exactly nothing! Meanwhile, us nerd types have been slowly amassing our fortunes through those nerdy jobs we have. And suddenly, our nerd funded cars, computers, houses, and misc items seem much more appealing than a trailer and dreams of yesterday.

(no offense former football players, I write in jest)

If the forum change goes through, I'm going to need a new home. I would be happy to become a moderator here if it gives me a safe place to post. I'll also do whatever I can to help out the resto & feral theorycrafters being displaced by the forum changes.

I already made disclaimers on my forum guides saying that they would not be transferred to the new official WOW forums. I'm making a stand by choosing to opt-out on the forum changes. I haven't been as active or consistent here as I probably should be, but once I don't have to spend several hours a day on the official WoW forums, I promise I'd be able to spend all my time here instead.

:cry

I agree. With the Real ID information going out on Blizzard Forums. I'm not going to deal with them anymore. Bad enough they have banned several people for posting their concern about how blizzard said "Real Life Names are not supposed to be posted on their forums", yet they are doing it anyway.

Yeah, about 5 people I know have gotten banned for trolling just for bringing up this point. All are against the real ID.

And the thread about it has already doubled the size of the second largest WoW thread in history. I'm beginning to think it may be time to hang up my laser cannon but I'm giving it a bit more time. This is depressing.

Even with the forum change not going live, I'd still be happy to come spend more of my time here & help out as best I can.

I stumbled on these forums the other day and it has been a treasure trove of knowledge.

Good luck on finding some additional moderators. I'll be around now that I have this site bookmarked and will be visiting often!
