Wouldn't this immediately bar several, if not most, members from becoming mod?
I ask because I am sure most of use have been warned several times at least
Lol it doesnt completely diminish your chances, it is just taken into account.

Light offenses will not be frowned upon. We've had former permanently banned members who appealed their bans to get promoted to moderator. Unless you've harrassed someone or commited harsher offenses, having some bans and warning points is not what might disqualify you. Your attitude towards the community as a whole counts way more than that.

What if you are not known for being an active poster//not known at all by most of the community?
Like if you just lurk around most of the time is that taken into account or everything is mostly determined on your app?

Hmm, well I will try then and hope I am not rejected due to my warnings. Thanks

Being an active poster on the boards doesn't really matter to be honest. Your knowledge of the rules will be assessed on your application, or your exam if a person makes it that far.

Your app is what weights the most for you. We tend to think that popular people are more active, but it's worth reminding that, sometimes, they are popular for the wrong reasons. Therefore, popularity means nothing if you have a bad reputation or app. The contrary is true. If you have a great app but is not popular, you will be given the chance.

Not at all. When I applied, I also mentioned my favorite ones. But that's not necessary, nor will it increase your chances, lol

Quick question regarding this statement on the first page :3



You may be immediately rejected from the second phase of recruitment if you fall under one or more of the following circumstances:

-If you were demoted from the moderator position before


Does this rule apply if you retired from the moderator position before? I know demotions usually happen if a moderator conducts rule-breaking activities but I was curious if retiring could also mean demoting when a moderator stands down from the position ^^

You remember those days right? When we'd party at Spam Kingdom all night! I miss those days...

Nope, it's a different scenario. If one was a good moderator during their jurisdiction, we'll most likely love to have someone experienced back.

Note: idk what happened to the quote format lol mfw

It might have been the line splitter that I used in my comment but I doubt that would mess up a quote, who knows xD

This really classifies a lot! Thank you for your response :3
