    Default Moderator Applications are misleading and should be removed or reserved.

    **Includes Guardian Application (if in future, Ubisoft's planning on one.)

    What is a Moderator Application?
    It is basically consist of multiple different questions that you must answer regarding different topics. Created in Seth's and Hamumu's era, they used to check the Moderator Application, see it as a way to hire new mods. It is usually opens every once in a blue moon and is found in the Gazette.
    - I'm not sure how regularly they check them, and what they are based on, but it is fine.

    Why I feel that Mod Appls are misleading?
    I feel that it's misleading to the developers, staffs and the community in actual fact. It is very misleading to the developers as, let's be frank, usually Mod Applications are very inaccurate, children could get help from a senior to further exaggerate their speech. Sure, Mod Applications might sound very formal and fantastic, but is it really catered to the long term development of the game? My answer to you is nope. It is a time waste for developers - since they claim to look through each and every single one of the Applications, and mind me, it's over 10 thousand of them. How much time would you have wasted instead of trying to legitimately make the game better - more community events, more dialogues with growtopians as a community on the game, reading and absorbing feedbacks, coming together as a growtopia staff and talk about what could further improve the game as a whole.

    Secondly As you know, the demographic trend of Growtopia is basically towards children, minors. After completing the Moderator Application, their first instinct is going to be like "yey. I've done mod app, HAHA I be mod tmr... u noob". Let's be real, Moderator Application will give them 'False Hope' of being a mod and it just sucks.

    Moderator Applications are really toxic - this is probably why it brought so many people in the game in my opinion, they just want power and fame. I'm sick and tired of people asking legit Mods how to be a mod, this just shows how much of a impact, a bad one, the Applications imposed. I'm sick and tired of Mods trying to come up with crazy and bizarre stories just to satisfy that person. It's just unreasonable and sad to say the least. Is this the Growtopia we all want?

    Problems it gave
    - Fake Mods Applications
    Random people trying to create fake mod apps just to hack others. Pathetic.
    - A more toxic community
    - A negative desire to gain power and fame

    Except!
    I believe the Moderator Applications should just be reserved for persons that Ubisoft finds potential in being a real Moderator. It should signify as a confirmation and it helps amplify the potential that the person has.
    - Ubisoft should PM them the Application with questions on the forums. List all instructions clearly. Not using a website.

    What do you guys think?

    I think they should choose specific people, mostly from the forums and let them do the apps before getting trained

    That's why I said that Mod Appls are reserved for specific people - typically the ones Ubi finds potential in being a good mod.

    They should really pick the older accounts tbh. Since the older accounts have more experience with the game

    Not necessarily. Attitude and personality are key to a good mod.

    Don't get me wrong knowledge is also important...

    Oh I know. I use to mod on a app. They removed me and others for doing our job properly while the ones they keeped are bribed by the owners of the app.

    What’s the purpose in this? If they believe somebody has the potential to be a mod they can simply check their logs, posts, watch them in-game...the stuff they have been doing for years now. Honestly I feel like giving specific people a mod application is counter-intuitive, and would cause them to gain a false sense of hope, and on top of that could possibly be abused.

    It’ll be taken as a confirmation if he/she wants to be a moderator as well as finding out the person’s personality type if he/she would work well together with other moderators. Yes, it could be abused, but mind me, it’s for potential players - players that have been closely watched by staffs. It will be very clear then if he/she is abusing the mod apps, since everybody’s writing style is distinct and different.

    It’s not officially announced or released yet. Lol. I hope not though.

    Furthermore, Guardians or Moderators, they are entitled to one entity - The Moderation Team. I’m really against basically applications that claims to gain you power and fame if you are suited for it. My points are listed above.

    And what i can't stop thinking is, is it actually right thing to do, to hire underage kids for free while their main job is school? And are they actually ready for work in age of 13? And when they get this position in young age and they start fail in school, who takes responsibility of that? How can big company use kids as a workers?
