Welcome New Forum Moderators!

Recently the volunteer forum moderation team went under a major revitalization as part of our commitment to the Aeria Games community.

It is important to note that members of the team with the exception of Superman0X are not employees of Aeria Games but volunteer members of the community, here to help the community flourish and grow and weed out those issues which infest online communities. They act with the best intentions of helping the community as a whole because they like the players and people here and want nothing but the best for them. That being said, here's a small glance into what forum moderators assist with on a daily basis:

  • Locking/Unlock threads: Those threads that have gone severely off-topic or are not beneficial to the community. Usually done for a staff member to review the thread or because original post(s) share important information or rarely if the original poster request the thread be locked. They may also unlock threads.
  • Sticky/Unsticky threads: Although rarely done without approval of Aeria staff.
  • Move and Split threads: Mostly done to remove spam, trolling, flames and duplicate posts. Occasionally to move posts to correct forum sections
  • Edit post content: Done the majority of the time for the removal of inappropriate content
  • Delete Shoutbox posts: Removal of inappropriate content and spam

They also directly report to Superman0X the following issues; players with signatures/avatars that are too large, players spamming or posting inappropriate content, and other forum/website issues so that they can be directly addressed in a timely manner.
 
 

The moderation team has very high standards for responsibility and confidentiality. Joining the moderation team requires a recommendation by Aeria staff or an existing member of the forum moderation team. If you are really interested in joining, you may wish to ask members of the mod team or the GM of your favorite Aeria game to garner their support.

A long overdue, but welcome initiative. Years back, I might have wanted to offer my services to the team, but my Aeria volunteering ship has long since sailed. Still, I remember the days when the moderator team was visible and the Forum GSes were easy to get hold of in order to have posts reviewed for content. I hope this will now be the case again.

Best of luck, all.

Team is too OP XD
Anyway, it's great to see that we have so many Forum Moderators.
I've seen them doing a very good job on the forums...
The threads that need to be locked are mostly locked very quickly by a Forum Moderator.
Overall, it's great to see such a strong team and I hope it'll get stronger.. xD
Good job..


Hope I wrote it in correct English..Quite late and I'm tired ._.

Thanks for the clarification. I did not know many of the powers of a forum sage myself.
