    Default Question about mods

    So firstly I know I'll probably get a lot of negative feedback on this as for some reason the majority of players basically worship the mods but as for me ive noticed a few issues id like to address and get more info on.

    what exactly is a mods job ? from what I am lead to believe they are meant to follow up on all reports sent by players and try there best to make the game a better and all-around safer environment for the gamers now I have noticed around 3-4 mods I wont say names who from when they log in to log off are working hard banning the casinos ect and I am thankful for it


    but then there is the other group of mods who I also will not name who get online and just spam sb to people and it pretty much destroys the chat with reply's and more sb from the mod.

    ive been sb blocked a few times due to this.


    anyway main issue is why are mods above the law whys it ok to spam and cost other people time and effort ? are they allowed to just do whatever they want and hang with youtubers all day or at some point is enough enough ?

    Thanks for expressing your thoughts, the community's feedback is important in the game's development.

    To answer your question, the moderators help control the community's behavior - they are the ones to enforce the game's rules, punishing those who does not abide them. However, part of the moderator's job is to also engage within the community - to help them with their problems or even just to chill out with the community. They're definitely not only logging in the game just to super-broadcast, however, I'll forward this with the team to be discussed. (:

    Leaving this thread open to allow discussion - but please keep it civil and appropriate. All of your feedback are really helpful.

    tbh jenuine and lokster do really good job like when jenuine banned like 100 spam bots at once, she did accidently do it publicly and it spammed the chat but still! and lokster nuked alot like drop games and casinos which is good. they are really good. i dunno but it seems like the ubisoft mods dont do alot except pop into youtubers videos but like watever. most ubisoft mods are doing good tho.. *ahem* Ottowo .. Yaa idk but like i heard Ubisoft gets paid but uh old mods dont that doesnt sound fair but whatever is whatever, you should talk with Jenuine and lokster and like aimster and shadowsurfer or other mods what they think and maybe find a way to pay them some how with ingame items out of game money or smth idk its not my place to say stuff like this but yeaah. ok thats my opinion thnx

    Correct me if I'm wrong but from the best of my knowledge. All of the older voluntary moderators are just that. Voluntary, chosen for the good they've done for the Growtopia community. Whilst payment (especially monetary)is certainly not mandatory I'm quite sure mods already do enjoy some in game item benefits ie. Wands and not to mention some even have their own "mod" items.

    Mod Edit - Please provide constructive criticism and your point of view on the matter. Hoping that moderators (or players for that matter) get hacked isn't very nice.

    First off , the wands are their own items....they're theirs to give to whoever they want and I'm not sure about that allegation...but it's pretty serious and I'm sure it would have been followed up it it was true. They were specifically chosen to be mods...they deserve it and why on Earth would you ever want a mod to be hacked??? A rogue mod could do inexplicable amounts of damage to both the game and community.

    So a lot of the mods that you see sb are probably Ubisoft mods. They do a lot of their work off-camera. So they still have to patrol in-game, but they also might log on to get a break from their work. I can assure you mods work very hard. Also you might see Odric hanging out with other players, He is the community manager so his main job is to interact with players. He still has to Ban players and nuke casinos but he interacts with players a lot. It is his job.

    Just want to address some things from your comments, because I hear it a lot from others as well. First, I can say you're definitely not thinking of the correct moderator because I do not pop into Youtuber's videos. When online, I typically stick to banning, WOTD visits, and possibly community activities. Along with this, Ubisoft staff members get paid - moderators do not, regardless if they're 1.0 or 2.0. Naturally, the Ubisoft staff is paid because working on Growtopia is their job. The rest of us are volunteers!

    As for what OP has said, all staff/mods are involved with enforcement of game rules, though along with our regular duties we are to interact with the community. This is a fundamental part in having a connection between us and the players (we're all on the same side!). Though, if you feel there are legitimate issues with some staff/mods possibly SBing too often, let a member know and we can discuss it as a team.

    I think NekoRei is the non-Ubisoft Community Manager, and that Odric is part of Ubisoft’s 2.0 mods?

    Just to clarify thing out:
    NekoRei is Growtopia’s community manager, she works for Ubisoft...
    Odric is also Growtopia’s community manager, he works for some game studio in Canada...
