    If I'd been community moderator...
    • I'd firstly been in chat as much as possible, since THW Chat is one of the primary methods to contact me. Since I'm (if I'd been of course) a community moderator, I must be available almost full time to operatively solve any arguments or issues connected with the community.
    • I'd regularily organized/assisted in execution of community-wide, small, but interesting contests to make everybody interested in their field of occupation.
    • I'd regulated the community in a way that couldn't provoke users to harass each other but instead, projected the good way of solving disputes (if any ever happen).
    • I'd visited every forum of the Hive daily to see if there are any problems in some topics which require a moderator to solve them.
    • I'd been helping fellow staff to find or post interesting material (maybe short but daily or every 3 days) and spotlights (like vkael did but he haven't managed to maintain that tradition).
    • And of course I'd never offend anybody (a good community moderator must serve as an example for the community: flaming moderator or the one who use obscenities / abuses the position for achievement of personal goals or rivalries definetly isn't good: the community will think like: 'Hey, he can do it, why can't we?').

    Hope that was detailed enough. :D

    P.S.: You can equal 'community moderator' with 'spirit of community' because his/her (its? o__o) actions reflect on other community members.

    Maintain, clean, respect and balance everything written, posted and commented. Abide with the hive rules a community mod should be. He should be a role model though real life really is a deal to everyone.

    The same thing I do whenever I am promoted to Hive Workshop moderator. Try to take over the world!

    Or maybe just compare other moderators to Marvel super heroes in news posts. That always seem to cause a lot of noise for some reason.

    Nah I am watching this thread and....
    I do not know... we speak about what would be if it would be (accent of WHAT IF)...
    Everyone knows me. Friend to everyone, talking to everyone, greet everyone, bring moral to people to be more active and post more, help if I can etc etc... Yeah, as someone mentioned, staying in chat as much you can is a must (from there I can slightly increase spreading of haosis virus). Yeah, organizing stuff if that is my job to do, read threads and keep everything clean and calmed etc etc... What else could do can't remember. (,,IF" I am there).
    yes, and DSG for admin, not moderator

    From what I remember you need access to the admin control panel which is separate from the moderator control panel. That gives you direct access to reputation and the ability to set it to any number. You can also edit individual reputation awards, deleting or modifying as you feel fit. However this is only if you are an administrator.

    Moderators have very little power. The only thing their moderator control panel can do is track user IPs to detect multi-accounts or IP sharing. The rest is all related to the moderator's intended goal with him having power over the appropriate sections.

    Not that people would actually want to be any of such for a game that is half-dead and over 10 years old. You might as well become a tomb keeper for a Pharaoh (no pun intended), or a telephone operator to direct calls.

    Well, let's see, a community moderator...

    Pretty much what some has stated, mostly I will be enforcing rules in a friendly manner and take decisive measures when necessary. Infractions, Neg Reps, and of course, Bans are taken for people who are persistent in rule breaking.

    For community related stuff, I would say I intend to continue Fladder's legacy of resurrecting Medivh's Tower. In addition, I also intend to resurrect Roleplaying forum, but sadly, I haven't acquire all the necessity (knowledge and such) to do what I aim for, sadly.

    I'm well aware of that, but the revival term here means using the system made by Fladdermasken to make the tower strict while still active in some ways.
