Quote by EternalParadoxTo expand shinsengumi's explanation on moderator
As you all know, I was promoted last October, or sometime around that. So the exam I had to take is newer than the one
shin had to take. Basically, I had to sit for a 100 question multiple choice exam, covering all the aspects of MT
Policy, FAQs, and other details about MT. There is extensive mathematics involved, as we had to calculate credits and
such. We also had to use critical thinking, because many questions were scenarios and we had to reason our way through
Heh...i prolly failed this one for sure...half the time it seemed like I am talking to myself....
There is also a short, 500 words essay to demonstrate our English proficiency and writing skills.
I might have a chance at this...(i never passed Toefl however)
In total, the exam comes out to 200 points. You had to get above a 185 to move on to the interview stage. I got 187
points because apparently I was interpreting the gallery comment spam sections a bit too leniently, so pretty close call
wow...that is like asking for you too high standards there...I say 160 plus is way more than enough IMO, but 185 is like
asking you either have to be Godly or Expert...
The current mods also went through all my previous posts. A big scare was when shinsengumi pointed out that he closed
the first thread I ever made, because I didn't search and made a duplicate thread. That almost bumped me off.
Oh come on...this is ridiculous, we all start out as N00bs and hence we need to learn, digging up old dirt from the
first times we joined is like asking for a miracle to happen....
I myself was interviewed by sheqel himself, since that was the time when school just started and most of the other mods
were busy with college. The interview was basically to see if you had the right attitude and personal character to be a
good moderator and handle situations. Some of the interview questions were pretty tough. But I guess Sheqel was nice and
let me pass. :)
Fair enough...i always thought he was a scary and unfriendly fellow however...
speaking of which...it seems he is lenient enough.
Speaking of which, not that I am interested...but whom do you see or apply to become one? Do you PM Sheq for the
apllication? Or something else?
Is there also a different test for forum or gallery moderation? Like perhaps to say, I apply for a moderator of the
galleries, I go through a different set of tests for gallery moderation than forum moderation.
I think a lot of people might actually volunteer for this. Heck...I think there are people applying for this already
after reading all this. I assume a lot of intelligent debaters in Minitokyo actually qualify for this.
