Most of our staff started out by being a mod on the forums. I suggest you do your best to be helpful with other players on the forums and in time you may be given the chance to become a Jr Mod and then work your way up.

We honestly dont really have admins for SM, sorry.

There's just the maintenance team and moderators, but thats work and honestly, you've to do it because you really want to do that. The title is awesome, but not worth it for sure :)

I to want to have some sort of position here, but it is hard work for sure (I know from personal experience)!

If any of these are useful here, then I can be of assistance:

-Writing

-New ideas

-Somewhat reasonable thinking

-Quick reactions

-Memes

Hope these can help with something!

It should also be mentioned that all moderator positions are volunteer positions. Only the administrators are paid, and they pretty much only exist for BattleDawn. Us moderators don't get paid anything, and our jobs mostly consist of banning spambots. :lol:

you need to provide low-key blowies for Liran on the regular before you even get considered. a willingness to ban harmless posts of 9/11 helps. oh, and throw in a bit of that Can-do attitude and you'll go far kid. *pats head affectionately*

So basically you're saying my skills are useless?

Well, good luck handling the parts of this forum that are blowing up with people who are ranting about the Mythicals Crisis (that's what I'm calling it now).

In these types of situations, it's good to have somebody who can help calm the community down. Less people may quit too. Just a suggestion.

I was just trying to lighten the mood, but I think you've taken it the wrong way. Nobody is saying your skills and contributions are useless — quite the contrary actually, I believe that everyone is glad to have someone so active in the community.

You have however, the wrong idea of a moderator's job. Especially considering that a good deal of us are from BattleDawn, the ultimate friendship breaker of all, most moderators will have differing opinions on issues. We're volunteers — we don't necessarily represent the thoughts and opinions of the developers. Hence, we don't have influence over what the developers do — it is not our job to represent them.

It should also be mentioned that there is currently only one developer working on SuperMechs, and that is Liran. He's working on this game whilst also working on another part-time job. Updates have to be planned months in advance, and change doesn't happen with the click of a finger. Now, there are some things about the methodology being used that I disagree with, but it's important not to underestimate just how difficult his job is. Tacticsoft is not a big company by any stretch of the imagination.

Our job is to tidy the forums, and make sure that nobody on the forums steps out of line. There's a fine line between what is okay and what isn't sometimes. It's okay to have strong opinions on things, and it's okay to criticise something or someone because of their performance. It is not, however, okay to attack someone personally e.g. telling someone that they're a waste of air.

We step in when necessary, but we don't enforce opinions, and nor should we, nor do we have the authority to, for the sake of making people shush. That is censorship, and it would simply make matters worse by burying the problem.

And sometimes, controversy is necessary, and beneficial. It's controversy that creates change in the end. If there were no problem, there would be no need for a solution.

Since when did THIS thread turn into an argument too?

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THIS WORLD PEOPLE??

I just responded to the only bit of information you put there, which was basically "we mostly ban spambots"

Think before you leap buddy.
