Trolls are everywhere and in any forum or platform, its how you work with them, that helps.

Yes men fan boys wanted.

Must be genetically predisposed to automatic revulsion of any and all criticism of GW2.

Extra points for number of times you mention your passion for jumping puzzles and the 'fun' of buying chances for digital dress up items.

You're thinking of the official forum. A brain and some higher reasoning skills are required for these positions.

You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.

I would recommend having multiple moderators for the stonemist forum, that place is dangerous!

Trolls are the harmless little monkeys right now.... It's the SportsStream spammers and other jerks who found loopholes & took over entire forums like an Australian Guild takes over WvWvW at night... thems the ones ya gotta worry about until GW2 stops being a cashcow

(no I'm not posting for indication of interest... I already served time as (more like was sentenced to) an admin /w mod duties elsewhere and ain't goin back b/c in order to be a model-moderator, your best option is not to share your public opinions on most things, and when you do, you have to have an apologetic tone whenever it's something controversial)

I considered it until you said "extra passionate about Guild Wars 2"

I don't know where I am on the passion-o-meter for GW2. I don't ignore the problems the game has, so I guess I won't bother applying.

There's no hard age requirement. The most important thing is how you present yourself in your application and how well your past posting history holds up.

Post history could be the death of me, seeing as some times I like to ride out as a devil's advocate in many threads. It's nice to present some opposition.

Does a recent drop in activity since GW2 came out count as not "holding up"? I was kind of too busy playing Guild Wars 2 to post as much as I used to :P

Was mostly referring to posting behaviors. Activity is an important thing to look at too, but not something that can be such an easy deal-breaker. We would hope (expect) one could moderate with a fair amount of activity, but it isn't like you're signing up for a full time job here ;)

Always fun to see new moderators being recruited. I love that you have an IRC channel! I would have applied, but I'm not an enthusiast about gw2, I just enjoy it. Better stay out of competing with the real fieryhearted people ;) GL in recruiting new good mods, in adition to the good moderators you already have ;)

I guess it'd be more appropriate to say, those that enjoy and actively play the game. We're not looking for extremely diehard fans or anything, but people that actually enjoy the game and keep up with game mechanics and the like.

Feel free to PM me if you have a question regarding moderation, want to leave some feedback, or just want to chat!

In that case, I could give it a try at least. Would be really fun to join up with you guys. :)

EDIT:
Hmm, the link does not appear to be working for me at the moment. I'll try again later. Is there supposed to be a popup when you click it?

Being able to see both sides of the coin doesn't seem to be a bad trait for a moderator, as long as you don't resort to personal attacks and trolling to get your point across :)

There's a popup, but that's not the actual page you fill out. Working fine for me atm.
