I try to make my posts as readable as possible, I try to make sure i spelt words correctly, I admit i do not have the best grammar or punctuation, but i cannot help that.Do you proofread your own posts?
I would ask them politely to stop arguing and to try and get along, as this is a forum and we should all try to get along.If you were to see two forum member's in a heated argument, but both of them were "right" how would you calm down the situation?
People are entitled to their own opinions if they don't think i am able to handle my job that is their opinion I cannot stop them from saying things about that.How would you handle mod hate? Supposing some members don't think you're able to do your job. Supposing you caught wind of that, whether out of or IN the forums. These members are simply stating their opinions without breaking rules. No other mod or admin has taken action against the member(s).
How would you handle this situation?
I have no schedule, i visit the forums probably most the day every day, i also can visit on my phone so I can visit while on the go. The forums is the first thing i do when i wake up :P and the last thing i do before i go bed.What is your daily schedule like?
I'm not looking for the small details, more like, current job hours per day, music making hours, game dev hours, Resource team hours, etc etc. I would like to know what the "mod to be" day is filled with, it will be nice to see how much time can be truly dedicated to the community.
Another question related to previous one.
What is the priority you have for your schedule?
Now most people will obviously say, your real life job is #1 priority, and it should be, but after that, how do you like to prioritize everything else on your schedule, is it random, or do you do it the same everyday.
Now if you become a moderator, how will you prioritize your schedule?
Now for a bit of fun. I want to see a general PM you would make to a member. A rule has been broken, lets pick rule #1, it has been broken by a member and now you need to PM them letting them know the rule was broken. Let us see it
That should be good for now, may not be the best questions but I'm saving those ones for later .
concerning the first question I would ask them kindly to keep politics of the forums, as we are a gaming, game making community which has nothing to do with politics etc.A member of the forum is focused on politics, religion, ect... but it is their own opinion... however their posts have people mixed with their own beliefs and has been upsetting a few of the other members for making the forum awkward. How would you handle this situation even though they aren't technically breaking any rules?
There is a major issue in the forum; however, not many members have seemed to notice it yet. There are a few ways that could resolve the issue, but no one seems to take the issue seriously because it's not detrimental at the moment... but will cause a lot of problems later on. How would you bring about a way to resolve this issue that only a few people seemed to have noticed.
A family emergency happens and you have to be away from the forums for awhile, what are the exact steps you'd take to let everyone know that you'll have to be away for awhile?
The family emergency takes longer than expected, but you only have a limited time online. Where is the one place you'd post?
So, I start a discussion about religion. I start this discussion to learn more about the different religion, faiths and beliefs in our world. I might occasionally even ask a rather critical question - intended to be respectful, but just to gather more information. I can then use this information to inspire me to write some fictional religions, faiths and beliefs for in my game or in the background information I like to have about the world I'm creating. Now, things turn out of hand and the posts starts to become more and more upsetting to people with strong beliefs. I try to keep things respectful, but without much effect.concerning the first question I would ask them kindly to keep politics of the forums, as we are a gaming, game making community which has nothing to do with politics etc.
I would ask the member that I gave the right punishment and if he continues I will ask admin/mod for helpQ: If you acted reasonably against a member (Gave the appropriate punishment) and then the user started complaining (wrongly) that they were being treated unfairly and that they didn't do anything wrong, what would you do?
No i wouldn't say you was wrong, I would ask them to calm down that this is a disccusion for a game, and not about real life. That not to take the discussion to heart and if they don't like what is written that they don't need to read it.So, I start a discussion about religion.

What would you do?
More specifically, I'd like to know:
Would you tell me I was wrong to start the discussion publicly here on a (read: the) RM forum?
1) I will ask them kindly why they are being like that to me and ask them to please stop.> A member is obviously angry with you, but is very passive-aggressive about it over the forums. None of their posts look mean/angry to other users or staff members, however. What do you do to resolve this?
> Rank these in order of importance (as they apply to this forum), and explain your reasoning: greeting members, following rules, keeping active, participating in events. I won’t accept an answer of “all are equally important”, however, you can explain to me why you think they should or should not be.
> A member starts hijacking a thread with their own questions and ideas - what do you do, and how?
> A member goes off into an off-topic tangent, but makes one relevant comment at the bottom of their post. How do you respond to this?
> A member keeps typing in ALL CAPS or 1337 5p34k, and members are starting to complain. What do you do, and how?
> A member is obviously responding to several posts just to up their post count, but their posts aren’t technically spam. How do you respond to this?
> You find out that some members are saying nasty things about you over IM. What do you do about this?
> You notice that an RT member isn’t being very friendly, but is still submitting their work on time. At what point do you contact their team leader with your concerns?
> What do you do to help a member who speaks very little English?
> BONUS: What is my favorite dinosaur? Note: I honestly don’t remember if you can find this information on the forum.
I will try and solve it so they all will get along, try and get them to understand what he is saying. being a mod aint about taking sides or who is right, its about trying to make this forum better for everyone :)A member who has been known to be a troublemaker has gotten everyone stirred up, but overall he is correct with what he's saying. However he has been coming across as a jerk and no one is seeming to listen to him about something important. Will you side with him and risk looking like a bad mod, side with everyone else and cause yourself to look better, or try to find a solution to have everyone understand his side of the situation while trying to have him calm down because of the rude way he speaks but having the possibility that both parties won't take you seriously.
1) they constantly kept breaking rulesWhat? You thought I was done with just one list?
> Under what circumstances would you ban a member instantly?
> You’re unsure of how many warning points to assign a member. What do you do?
> Do you think you will have any problems giving out a warn or ban? It’s easy to say you’ll do it, but will you have any hesitation?
> You realize you’ve given out an undeserved punishment. What steps would you take to resolve this?
> You notice an issue on the forum, but neither of the admins are available to fix it. What do you do?
> You and another staff member disagree on how to interpret a rule. How and where do you discuss this?
> How will you prioritize looking through the forum? Will you look at everything, or try and focus on one section?
> You ask 2 members to take a discussion into PM, but they refuse, and direct their anger at you. What happens next?
> You find that a banned member comes back with an alternate account, but they’re following the rules now. What do you do?
> BONUS: Name 3 of my 5 favorite animals. :)
