RMS Forum is Hiring
« on: May 16, 2009, 10:57 PM »
Hello,

It has been almost a month since one of our global moderator (JJJ) left the job.  I can see Descent and Pow is doing a fine job.  As such, Descent will be promoted to moderate more area of the forum (that include Server Discussion,  Server Advertisement & sub-forum, Server Reviews and Server Seeking) so he can help out more.

It is my wish to have a team of quality staff to monitor this forum so I can focus on working on the main site without worries.   So, I believe it's time to employ more help to keep this forum organized.  Hopefully qualified people will apply. 

At this point, we will hire sectional moderators.  We will observe their performance and determine if they can be promoted to moderate more area of the forum or become a global moderator in the future.

Update 05-28-2009

Xarale and Relics are hired as RO Sectional Moderators.  They will moderate the RO sections, rms test server section and also the Off-topic sections.  In their applications, they are not working on/for any RO server at the current time.


Positions Available:

Ratemyserver.net Sectional Moderator

This position will moderate part or all of the following depend on experience: Server Discussion & sub-forum, Server Advertisement & sub-forum, Server Reviews and/or Server Seeking.

Applicant requirement: You cannot be a gm or owner of any RO server at the current time and while you are on the job.  Forum moderation experience is an asset.


Ragnarok Online Sectional Moderator

Applicant requirement:  You cannot be the owner of any RO server at the current time and while you are on the job (being a staff is not a problem).  Exceptional RO knowledge is an asset.  Frequent solution provider in the listed sections is an asset.  Forum moderation experience is an asset.

This position will moderate part or all of the following depend on experience:  Share Music & sub-forum, Share Video & sub-forum, Share Other & sub-forum, General Chit Chat and/or Graphics.

Applicant requirement:   You cannot be the owner of any RO server at the current time and while you are on the job (being a staff is not a problem).  You can apply to this position only or you can apply to the other two positions plus take the duties of this position.  Forum moderation experience is an asset.


All moderators will be required to read, understand and work accordingly with the rules set out to govern this forum.  They will have to work directly under me and Pow, work as a team with other moderators and respect users in this forum.

If you don't disclose, and anyone find out ... you will be fired.  It's like those lucky draw where family member of employee can't participate and even if you win your status will be voided  (... can't find a better example).

For the ratemyserver section, since it's dealing with server discussion directly we don't want GM or Owner to be in the there for obvious siding reason.  Because there is always the chance where your own server or the server you gm on show up in a discussion, review and/or hall of shame.

For everything including the above, RMS don't want unnecessary ties / associations to any server (owner) to create illusion of corruption.  If you apply as a GM of some server, we will also look at your tie/rank/position in the server to determine your suitability.  Say if you are the head gm or Admin of a server but you are not the owner, chances are your tie to the server is high and we might not want to hire you for that reason alone.  I am sorry if this is too picky, it's only reasonable for me to do that to keep the site/forum in good shape. 

Being in the RMS Team means you represent RMS, if you are in the RMS Team but also heavily represent some other server, then we have a problem.  Yes, you can say being a GM lower your chance of working here.  Of course it has an effect with reason mentioned previously (depending on your position and the position you are applying to), but we are not putting a clear cut on that to discourage applicants.

BAA- ops ._.

No but really, the ones applying should really think about what they are going into.  RMS is a forum board that needs mature professional people.
When I say that I don't mean 30 year olds sitting and following every move that happens on here, but it needs attention, and the job should be taken seriously.

I've gotten pm's if I was going to apply, and I'm not going to because I know what kind of responsabillity this job is.  Kids applying are not fit for this job imo, no matter how mature they are, because they don't have the right mindset.  They also have parents to take into consideration, they can't be here all the time and maybe they get bored one day and decide to push someone over here or something.

It's not just to say "I want that job!", you have to think; What would I be doing, can I do it?, will I do it okay, bad, great?, should I apply? If I whine if I get let down, will it affect how I treat people here?

Most of all this is a job, not a play ground.  There are tons of people here, and some better then others, so think about applying.  Perhaps you know someone that might be a better fit then you?  In that case you should find out if they would be interested in working here.


Okay serious post away, stop sending me emails, I don't know who you are, and I doubt I would be accepted here, I'm too nice and proper apparently. Please stop =.='

I don't think it's quite as huge a deal as you made it, Silver, but I see where you're coming from.
It's rare that I come to RMS anymore. I won't see any messages you leave me here.

I did read what Pow stated on December 3rd, 2010, but this is for future reference I guess (since I have a lot, and will have a lot, of spare time).

Age: 18 in a few months
Languages: English; French; (some) Spanish
Country: Canada
Time-Zone: GMT-5 (Eastern)
Occupation: Secondary School Student / Near-Graduate
Contact Information: Do PM on RMS for MSN details
Position: Forum moderator (wherever required in the future)
Related Work Experience: NiktoutRO Loki Global Moderator (2007); FeelRO Shinai Moderator (2008); LunchboxRO Global Moderator (2010); CraftRO Global Moderator (2010); IntenseRO Global Moderator (2010)
RO Experience: Four (4) years on MRs, including NiktoutRO Loki, FeelRO Shinai, JustRO v1, EssenceRO, IntenseRO, LimitRO, derRO, etc.
RO GM Experience: NiktoutRO Loki (2007); JustRO v1; OracleRO; AriaRO
Current RO Server Relations: IntenseRO Global Moderator (Inactive)*
Availability: Random; basically 1-3h a day divided into random visits

As said, future reference; even if it's four months from now, I'll still be on RMS, and I'll still be available, so do keep this in consideration when/if a moderation position becomes available.

Thanks.

* Moderation positions do not include GM accounts; I do not have a GM account / administration rights on any server and I am not planning to acquire either at all. Ever.

[Name] Christina.

[Age] 22

[Occupation] None, currently.

[Contact Information] My email/MSN is *removed*
[Position you're applying for.] Sectional Moderator

[Related Work Experience] I have been a forum moderator for a few different servers. SunriseRO, KodamaRO, ExtinctRO, AriaRO, CelestialRO, and Realm of Ragnarok (The first one, not the one that reopened recently). I have also managed my own forum, quite some time ago. But it wasn't RO-related.

[RO Experience] I have been playing RO for 2~3 years.

[Current relation to RO servers, if any.] I resigned from my GM position on the server I was working for, so I currently have no relations to any RO server at this time.

[Time you will be spend on your forum moderation job, average daily] I'm normally on these forums for -at least- a few hours a day. I can be on more often if needed, though. I have a lot of time to spare.

[Additional information you wish for us to consider] I liek mudkipz? I dunno'. I'm very friendly, and I know when to be mature and responsible. I also thoroughly enjoy helping others, and I always keep a neutral, level-headed position in most disputes, regardless of the people involved. I also prefer to steer away from drama.

Name: Sarah

Age: 18

Occupation: Full-time college student/part-time restaurant management

Contact information: ambrosial_aurora@live.com or holycrapsarah@gmail.com

Position Applied For: Sectional Moderator

Related Work Experience: Staff experience for about 6-7 years on various servers such as FrostRO, DiviniaRO, DivineRO (I actually think there was more to the name on that one, but I can't remember), and a few more. I was also part of support guilds on certain servers such as ShockwaveRO, and I also had attempted to start my own, but failed due to funding issues (PO' MOFO). I've also been, in the past, a very active RMS goer, then something happened to my old account, - tear, - so I remade it.

RO Experience: Roughly 9-10 years. Started in open beta for iRO, played for a couple, took very long breaks here and there, jumped on private servers and have been jumping between them for years. Still play iRO on occasion.

Current RO Relation: Semi-AtomixRO, I guess. Not a big fan of the RO server, but am currently playing their ECO server with a friend.

Time Spent On Job: Roughly 6-7 hours, since I can't really estimate. I'm a forum junkie, I guess I can say.

Name: Ruby Yang (No need for my full Chinese name XD)

Age: 18

Occupation: Just graduated from high school and going into university (University Student).

Contact Information: PM on the forum or through MsN. I can give my email/MsN through PM.

Position that I am Applying for: Any available ones.

Related Work Experience: I was an Event GM for several servers in the past which automatically made me have forum moderation powers. I have experience in moderating forums and have worked with Ucoz, SMF, vBulletin, and IPB boards. Currently, I am an Administrator for two forums (two RO servers).

RO Experience: I have been playing RO for around 4 years now. As stated above, I have been a GM for several servers and an Administrator to two servers.

Current Relation to RO: I am the Admin/Owner of Starlite RO and an Administrator for an upcoming server.

Time I will spend on RMS Forums: I used to have more time, but now that I just graduated from high school and going into university, the time really varies. I have to wait to get my schedule in August, but I would have to say I can spend around 3-4 hours on weekdays and around 6 hours or more on weekends.

Additional Information: If I am chosen for any position, I will uphold my duties and responsibilities and moderate the forum fairly and effectively. I know how to work with SMF mods and can design some things like banners, avatars, etc (though I still need to sharpen up my skills). I also know many other people who can help design things if necessary. For languages, I would say I know French and Chinese, but I need to work on them as well (let's just say I know how to type the basics). My English is very fluent. I came from Taiwan, and I am living in Canada (Ontario <3 -5 EST). I am an active member of RMS forums (stayed here for more than 3 months at least). As of the moment, I posted my application for future consideration (since I do not fulfill the requirements for applying as I am a server owner). Thank you for your time!

Update:  Tom~ and Kyomi are hired as sectional moderators.

I just cleaned this topic a bit to remove the old applications from a year ago.  Since many of them no longer come to this forum.

Just a note on the choice: DarkDevine seems over qualify and his work with roorg will limit his eligibility later on.  Yukino you are an admin, there is no position you are currently eligible of, I'll keep the application there maybe you can update it later when needed.  Lucian and Aurora™ came very close, however a difficult decision had to be made.

Thank you for all applicants thus far.

[Edit: March 2nd, 2011]

Name: Irene

Age: 18

Occupation: Subway Clerk; Student

Languages: English; French

Contact Information: PM me for my MSN

Desired Position: Ratemyserver.net Sectional Moderator

Related Work Experience: Global Moderator for a wide range of servers (NiktoutRO; VisionRO v1; OracleRO; MalevolentRO; etc.), Administrator on others (IntenseRO; AriaRO; AerialRO)

RO Experience: I've been playing RO for ~4 years on a wide variety of servers, though I specialize in LRs and MRs, 99/70

Current Relation to RO: I'm inactive at MalevolentRO as a Moderator (not in-game) and the way it's looking, it's not going to be around much longer anyway. I don't even visit there anymore. I consider myself merely a player of RO and do not consider myself professionally affiliated with any server

Availability: I browse everyday anyway, as can be seen by my posts and my posting average. I also have the largest, valid report history on RMS :B

Additional Information: I've been around for almost two years now. Many forumers here know me, and I know many of them. My posting history has always been positive; I've never received a warning, a ban, or a mute. My posts have always been clean, well-done, and display knowledge of good grammar and punctuation skills. I've always tried to be helpful and have not been known to "troll", etc. The Third-Job thread was something I originally came up with and, becoming inactive, was taken over by Tommy with credit given where credit was due. Overall, I'd consider myself a first-class "citizen" of RMS and have the history and proof to back up the claim.

That's all
