[HIRING] IRC Moderators

Hello all,

We are looking for a few community volunteers to help with IRC moderation, especially if you live in the following time zones: Europe, Australia/Pacific, Asia, Africa, or Late US. Please answer the questions below in an email to: jobs@swgemu.com with "IRC Moderator Application" in the subject. Thanks!

Personal questions:
1. What is your forum account name?
2. What is your age in real life?
3. What is your profession in real life? If you are a student, what are you studying?
4. What time zone do you live in? What time(s) of day/week are you most active in IRC?
5. Do you know any current or former staff members (Either personally, through SWG, or other chat services.) and if so, how?

Experience and general questions:
6. How long have you been following this project?
7. Why do you want to become an IRC moderator?
8. What do you view the role of IRC moderators to be?
9. What moderating skills do you have?
10. How proficient do you consider yourself with IRC?
11. Which language(s) do you speak?
12. Do you have access to IRC, and if so, how often do you use it?
13. What do you think trolling/trolls is, and how does it affect IRC?
14. What do you think is the best attitude to take with troublesome members? Give an example if possible.
15. How would you grade the effectiveness of the Infraction system?
16. Do you think moderating is fun?

Situational analysis:
Please include any actions you would take (if any).
17. A player jumps into #swgemu and reports being harassed via PM, IRC, and/or in game and there are no staff members in the channel, what do you do?
18. A member makes several inflammatory messages towards yourself. He begins harassing you via PM, IRC, and/or on the test center. What sort of action do you take?
19. A member writes several messages in quick succession. Each line has the exact same message on it. What do you do?
20. A discussion in which the original subject follows all the rules begins to disintegrate into petty bickering. Four members in particular are derailing the discussion and causing others to bicker. What do you do?

Shameless bump.

Also, don't be put off by the timezones; if you think you've got what it takes to be an IRC moderator, feel free to apply, even if the timezone you are primarily in isn't listed.

The Email and form to fill out is in Phantmldr's original post up top. Though again, the email is jobs@swgemu.com. The "form" is really just a bunch of questions that are numbered up above.

I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes, or should I?
