    Arrow Staying at the forum (Moderator)

    HAy guys, I came here to the forum to find a fix to my device but then i thought i should probably stay here. I have watched little closely what you guys are doing here and talking about and all of them seem to be very interesting. the thing i wanna talk about is moderators mostly.
    i thought mini mods get to become mods and i thought it works like that but as i watched your posts i noticed that it was not the case here. people like minimods dont get chosen to be mods but instant the opposite.

    I noticed and watched(Im not a stalker xD) while mini mods are trying to be helpful but annoy the heck out of the forum people... i want to ask how moderation actually works and ubisoft mention that those who are chosen to be moderators are helpful, positive, drama free, issue free, active forumers and gamers, etc... since im new here...... whats the point of being a moderator like whats awesome about that nothing right... like i dont know whats the idea.

    are there anyone who ubisoft has asked to be moderators and but then turned it down because i would like to know who they are. we could have a boy on boy bear xD.
    also why havent these guys also chosen that day when v2.0 came out. i mean they are issue free, drama free, and still not chosen
    ill mention these forumers who i found. [HIDDEN]... I for sure thought that bitelord was chosen but nah and can ubisoft really define worthiness here like who is the most worthy. btw how to reach laser wizard.

    I won't go into details about those people that you mentioned, but I wouldn't feel comfortable having any of them as mods. Most have quite a bit of drama behind them, (one literally has his own cult following?) another is a very obvious mini-mod. Not naming any names though, as singling out is illegal here and I would rather not get in trouble.

    Mini-mods are people who are friendly and (sometimes) helpful, but try way too hard at it, and definitely are only doing it to become a moderator one day. Some I'm sure only want that in hopes of future wealth and popularity. Not all mini-mods are like this, but a fairly alarming amount of them are. Since we had the announcement of the 2.0 moderators, we have had a surge in mini-mods doing it just in hopes to be chosen, and most I'm sure, for the wrong reasons.

    The moderators that were chosen in 2.0 have all been around for a very long time. Most from 2013. They know a lot about the game and know exactly what they need to do in order to benefit the community. It's not an easy job, and I'm not sure why people take it so lightly in saying that they would like to become a moderator. It's not a simple task, and it is something that you should expect to put a lot of time into.

    Yeah, since the old days it has been pretty consistent (and as mentioned by Clover, the 2.0 announcement caused a surge) to have people “mini-modding” the forums. They’re often less helpful and cause a lot of clutter, while also doing it strictly to become a moderator. I can almost guarantee 90% of people claiming they “want to help others” are truthfully doing it in an attempt to become a mod...which doesn’t work.

    And I’m with you - the people selected to be moderators don’t focus on the position because they fit the qualities necessary. They understand that it is a serious task, it isn’t about fame, and really is given to trusted, mature players who can offer help to others with their experience.

    Mini-mods are people who like, try too hard to become something they aren't, some people can just not try too hard but be moderator material (helpful kind etc) , then those are the actual people who are deserving of mod

    And about the moderator 2.0 thing, I am not worthy lol pretty sure there's a lot more helpful people out there, and my history is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy too toxic but I won't go into that

    Also lesser wizard is achieved from getting a specific amount of posts , not sure how many but ok

    Mini modding isn't annoying, it's more of abnoxious, cause mini mods already tell you what you already know of and somehow tell you in a very abnoxious respectful formal matter.

    There's no way to become moderator. You just have to be yourself and help if you can, if they notice you and you fit to their requirements then you'll get chosen. You don't need to do something odd to get noticed.

    Why is my name on top of the list
    I get treated of mini-modding though on the inside, I don't really care about becoming a moderator anymore.
    I mean, think about it. When they hire you as a moderator, here are the cons:
    - You become a slave of Ubisoft, no salary, no rewards, nothing
    -> Implies that you're wasting your time
    - With that time, you could learn something useful like programming which actually makes money and helps you with your future
    - The dream of becoming a moderator just for the @ and the colored name. Like seriously? Why in the world would I become a slave (cough Moderator cough) just to get two useless things?
    - You literally have to deal with a ton of rule breakers in game which affects you. When you "hand out" with rule breakers, you become prone to becoming one yourself too. No thanks, I'm good as I am.
    - You can't have fun anymore, everyone will start talking about how you're not doing your job right anymore.

    Pros:
    - Moderate the game you love
    - Be famous and get wands for free
    - Get the power to ban people and be invisible

    I do admit that I wanted to become one in the early days (2017, I started playing in 2015), but that's not the case anymore because I've grown up and realized it's absolutely not worth wasting my future.
    Now let me ask you, what do you care about more, your future, or the future of a game?
    Of course you can still help Ubisoft without really moderating the game (like help discovering bugs and glitches in your free time)

    Oh and, why are you singling us out? It's illegal.
    Please remove our names from the post or I'll have to report you.

    Okay this question is for you all including community manager @Nekorei. hopefully she sees this or ill spam her name here until i get a warning or something. kidding... yeah i'm sarcastic boy.

    Nekorei:
    anyways when the v3.0 application will be open like what will it take for those people to be chosen and how can you choose from thousands i mean dont ubisoft get tired. one obvious question is how many are you going to choose? is 5 the limit or is it 10. and with those applications since there are hundreds... are you just going to skip some of the application and move to the other until you see someone interesting

    second question: are there already moderators you expect to choose, what i mean is if someone is perfect to your requirements or is deserving to be a mod for reason. will they be the first application you will check.

    third one: is there ever going to be more waves or will that be last one. if there will be. will there be a another application.

    fourth one: will those moderators have to be so long played players from the forum like the v2.0 or will they be somehow different. will they also have different task's then the v2.0?


    For the others:

    first question: who do you think is the most deserving to be a mod. who is the most useful one.

    second one: what country do you wish had moderators (some people were talking about it...)

    third one: what do you think how moderator application is going to impact the forum/in-game

    fourth one: which former moderator do you want to return to moderating

    fifth one: [HIdden for obvious reason because there isn't a fifth question]

    I would select no one as a moderator at the current moment. LyveWyre would be a decent choice, but I am not sure about his activity and such.

    I think countries where there are large player bases of non-English speakers. Indonesia comes to mind, as there are few moderators (if any) who are Indonesian.

    Moderator applications tend to make the forums crazy. As aforementioned, mini-mods often pretentiously give vague information and cause a ton of disruptions since other users feel a vicious impulse to harass the mini-mods. This results in a pretty toxic cycle of feigned positivity and reproach of such.

    Coldplay easily. Though, iSG might be fun.

    Like they said before Moderators help keep the game stable and punish those who do not follow the rules moderators are here to help anyway they can.
