    Applying to become a Staff

    Post by Stalker on Sat Oct 03, 2009 12:26 pm

    All applications need to be submitted in Applications section. If you submit your application anywhere else, the application will be closed and you will be denied.

    If your application is approved, you will be evaluated on your English proficiency with our Interviewers. After the interview, you will be granted a 'On Evaluation'. If you show persistence and are doing the jobs required you will be promoted to the position you applied.

    Requirements:

    • CB Activity – Yes, it’s a requirement to be active on CB. Why? Simply because it’s a requirement of moderators themselves, and I think it’s good for applicants to get involved as much as possible. You want to try and talk in CB even if you feel its useless talk. It shows other staff members that you are there. Remember you can idle too. If you have not been on our CB, you WILL get DENIED. Chatbox IS A REQUIREMENT PERIOD.
    • Post Count – Post count isn’t the ‘be all and end all’ of your application, however it is taken into consideration. We really can’t judge whether or not you’re worthy of becoming a staff member if you’ve only posted twice. Try and get around 150-200 posts before applying, to boost your chances of being accepted.
    • No warnings – technically, we’ve allowed users to apply regardless of whether or not they’ve been warned in the past. However, it really does decrease your odds of being accepted if you have warnings!
    • Professionalism - The way you present yourself in the community stands out. If you post comments that are unprofessional, it greatly decreases your chances of being approved.
    • Section participation - Obviously if you are applying to be a moderator of a certain section you must be active in it. So make sure you have a good amount of post in the section your applying for.
    • Join Date - We do look at when you joined LFE. So if you joined LFE two weeks ago and still meet the requirements, you might not stand that great of a chance at getting accepted. However, you will still be considered.

    Tips:

    • Don’t PM us to speed up your acceptance! We’ll get back to you regarding your application; it won’t be ignored. Don’t PM us about how long the process is taking and what your odds are of being accepted, because any/all updates will be in your application thread.
    • Don’t bump your thread. We know you want attention and you wanted to be given the abilities to moderate ASAP, but you’ll just have to be patient. People bumping their threads to gain extra attentions gets to be what we call “annoying” and will be DENIED.
    • Be optimistic. It’s a pet hate when I open up a thread and see “oh wellz I probably wont get the position anyway”.
      Include references. These references should probably be staff, and you should contact them before including them as a reference. It’ll increase your chances of becoming a mod.
    • Post in the right section and in the right format! You’d be surprised how many people post in the wrong format, or in the wrong section – purely because they didn’t read. If you can’t get your application right, then we won’t really consider you at all.
    • Explain things in detail! If you claim that you have moderated a forum before, include the link there so we can see what kind of site you worked on.
    • Use a variety of words to give us the feeling that you are above the rest. Try to use words like "Dedicated", "Motivated", "I strive for...", "I am persistent in doing...", etc....
    • Don't submit a application that looks like it was done in 5 minutes. Take some time on your application. It will benefit you in the long run. The more time you put into your application, the better. How you present your application shows us how serious you are about becoming a moderator.
    • If you have a application written, but are not comfortable with it being submitted, feel free to PM one of the moderators so they can look it over.
    • Before you submit your application, don't forget to include what section you are applying for. It may sound dumb, but there have been instances where a member didn't mention what section they wanted to apply for.
    • Be creative in your application! Below is merely an example of what it should look like. Use this example as a guideline, but include stuff you feel could benefit you in being accepted.
    • After you submit your application, you will be able to read what other staff members have to say. Please do not reply back to your application. If you have to reply back to what was said, then you didn't follow the instructions or you did not meet the requirements. If you include the needed information along with the detail, then there serves no real need to reply to your application.
    • When applying for a section, be sure that you know if the section has a moderator. If you apply for a section that already has a moderator, you may not get accepted simply because that section does not need another moderator.
    • Keep in mind that your previous posts will be looked at. So if you posted a comment that is unprofessional or immature, consider yourself not being accepted. Remember, we are looking for a applicant that stands out and sets the example in a professional and mature matter.
    • Punctuation - Believe it or not, but punctuation matters. Try to use the proper punctuation when it comes to certain things. Like capitalize the first letter of a sentence. Add a period at the end of a sentence. Use apostrophes in the right sense. Hyphenate words that need to be. Using the proper punctuation along with proper grammar will only show your maturity along with your professionalism. It really makes your application stand out if done properly.

    Real Name:
    E-mail Address: Include a email address we can reach you at

    Fill the form and submit it at the Application Submission.

    DarkAngel, please post your application at the right place please.

    The correct section is the "Application Submission", which is below Announcements.

    Also, please re-read the forum rules.

    It is not a TK board, if you do not wish to follow the rules, then you will get the consequences.

    If that is your opinion I have nothing against it, you did break the rule by re-posting in RED where the rules were stated that you cannot use it.

    Bolded lettering is reserved for Staff only.

    Since you decided to ignore that rule, I have no choice but to give you another warning.
