Game Sage Application for Aeria Mobile!

We need more Game Sages!
It's Game Sage application time!

To learn more about the requirements for becoming a Game Sage, click here.

.::Aeria Mobile Game Sage Applications::.

It is very important that you read this entire post before submitting your application. Failure to properly submit your application will result in disqualification.

Deadline: 01/07/2013 11:59pm PST

There are two parts to this application. Part I is to be posted as a response to this thread, and will be visible to everyone on the forums. Part II will be submitted via RT (please select Monster Paradise from Contact Us) and only the GM team will read it.

Because Part I is viewable by everyone, and Game Sages have a very public face, we feel it is important to ask the community for their feedback on the applicants. Do not post this feedback here, it will be removed. We have created a thread for you to do so here.

While we are mostly looking for Game Sages on our forums, we are accepting applicants who do not have a huge forum presence as well.

Remember to be truthful in all of your answers. When applications close, the thread will be locked and I will begin the application review process.

If you have any questions about the application or the Game Sage position, feel free to send a PM to any of the Mobile Game Masters!

Application

Account Name: Zox
Device: iTouch 4th generation (iOS 6.1)
Country: United States
Languages: Punjabi (verbal not written) and primarily English
1. I have helped answer questions, helped people by directing them to Aeria Website, directed them to proper people who could help such as GS, attempted to end fights in threads, and try to keep proper threads in proper area (Chat/Swap/Strategy). Although, I've had trouble and got involved in negative ways attempting to end a quarrel.
2. I have no current experience.
3. I have average experience in aiding people but it could become a priority for me.
4. I have attended the in game (Monster Paradise) and online forums for assistance and answers to questions.
5. I believe a game sage is a person who volunteers to aid Game Staff and higher authorities to monitor the forums and help make the game a cleaner and fun gaming environment, and answer questions when GMs are not available. I believe a good game sage is respectful, kind, patient, responsible, and considerate.
6. I want to be a game sage so I can help out the community, be better informed about issues so I can aid in explanations to public, end pointless offensive threads, stop spamming, and stop offensive attacks on fellow players. I cannot promise I'll be able to do all this but I will try . It would be wonderful to help out the gaming environment.
7. I understand special, personal, and important information should not be released to public unless told to by GM or higher authority to release information. If this information was released the game would be spoiled and knowing the players, the information would be spread instantaneously.
Thank you for reading. I hope I have the potential to be honored with the title: GS.

1. What community contributions have you made that shows you would make a good Game Sage?
Answer: I have answered questions on game message boards. I ensure that people do not low blow or cheat other players. I keep the game enjoyable and fun for everyone. I do my best to participate in all game events. I also put others before myself.
2. What experience do you have running/hosting organizational events?
Answer: I am a volunteer at a newcomer youth centre. We run lots of events for new youths who have just arrived to Canada. I often host these events to bring a warm feeling to their nervous hearts. Not only that I am on my schools Student Council. We are in charge of school wide events such as school dances, school games, etc.
3. What experience do you have helping people find solutions to their problems?
Answer: I was a tutor to young kids before and I would attend elemntary schools every wednesday of the week to help them with school. I also help a number of students in my school and past schools as a peer mediator. I help to solve situations and problems between people.
4. What experience do you have with the Aeria forum community (Any game, not necessarily Mobile)?
Answer: I do not have any experience in this field. Although I am not involved now, I hope to be more involved with the community whether I become a Game Sage or not.
5. What do you think a Game Sage is? What are their main responsibilities? What makes a good Game Sage?
Answer: A Game Sage is a volunteer who helps other players. Their main responibilities are to help others and to put others before themselves, to work together with GMs to make the game more enjoyable for everyone, and to keep the gaming community a safe and fun place to be by enforcing rules or reminding other players of the ToS. A good Game Sage is a good friend. A good Game Sage is someone that any player, no matter the relationship, can go to for help or just for a good conversation.
6. Why do you want to be a Game Sage for Mobile (and not another game)?
Answer: I would like to be a Game Sage for Mobile because the games I play are on Mobile. I don't play many other games except for Mobile games. I haven't had the experience of Aeria's computer games because my computer would be too slow to run them. Also I have been playing Monster Paradise for over a year and its one of the best games that I have played and I can never get sick of it.
7. Explain the importance of confidentiality in this position.
Answer: Confidentiality in this position is the most important thing. The information exchanged between GMs about game events or news should not be shared ahead of time. Also personal information about player should NEVER be publicized for anyone to know. Being a Game Sage means to be secretive about things going on that the public should not know of.

Stand aside...I'll show you how its done

1. What community contributions have you made that shows you would make a good Game Sage?
In game there are many players who know me, I would like to think that to most of them I am seen as a nice, engaging and knowledgeable person. I like to spend a lot of time helping others and it shows, I have a lot of friends in game and I try to act as a moderating factor in the community. In most of what I do I am trying to help the community and the game, I really enjoy Monster Paradise, and I want to help it succeed.
2. What experience do you have running/hosting organizational events?
I am currently the head of an after school program that takes care of kids ages 5-9, and during the summers I am a counselor in a summer camp with 180 children grades K-6. In both programs we routinely participate in large group activities. During summer camp we take field trips almost every day to various places. These trips must be set up in advance by either myself or my boss; since average capacity in each individual camp is 45 children there is often a lot of planning and foresight that goes into every trip, particularly when those trips are to local businesses.
3. What experience do you have helping people find solutions to their problems?
Working with large groups of children is great experience at finding solutions to problems, especially when you consider that younger children tend to be a very hard group to please when they are upset. Working with the children has allowed me to many opportunities to both problem solving and resolve conflict. You learn how to work with multiple people, understand all sides of the arguments, and find solutions that are acceptable to both sides, this experience is invaluable when working with large communities of people. Working with kids also entails working with their parents; sometimes parents are more difficult to deal with than their children. This has given me experience with people of many different ages during many different circumstances, both good and bad. Additionally, I have done four years of research on DNA repair in a lab at my university. Scientific research is all about examining problems and finding innovative solutions to find answers. Sometimes this involves using old techniques in new ways, or even inventing entirely new techniques to use. The work also involves interacting and working together with other researchers on those complex problems.
4. What experience do you have with the Aeria forum community (Any game, not necessarily Mobile)?
Honestly I don't have much experience with the online forum, but I do have a good presence on the in game forum for Monster Paradise. I will routinely engage with other players and offer advice or help. A large number of people in game know me and I believe I have a positive image and am seen as helpful by people in the game.
5. What do you think a Game Sage is? What are their main responsibilities? What makes a good Game Sage?
A Game Sage is someone who is knowledgeable and experienced in game. They act as moderators within the community as well as an additional connection between players and the GMs. A Game Sage is there to help players with questions regarding the processes of the game, they are there to help inform the community of important matters and to act as a voice of moderation on the forums. They make sure rules are followed and can serve as a system to relay problems in game to the GMs. A good Game Sage is someone who is present in the community and is always willing to help other players. The good Game Sage is courteous but must also be decisive and commanding when the situation calls for it. That doesn't mean that they aren't fun, and so a good Game Sage should be someone who is respected and if possible, liked, by the community.
6. Why do you want to be a Game Sage for Mobile (and not another game)?
Mobile is how I was introduced to Aeria, it was the first introduction to the company and it is where I feel the most at home. In addition to this I am never anywhere without my phone which allows me a much larger frame of time to be online and interacting with the community.
7. Explain the importance of confidentiality in this position.
As a Game Sage confidentiality is extremely important, this is for the sake of both Aeria and the players. For Aeria confidentiality is business, information such as upcoming events or game mechanics questions are vital to the success of the game, and as such anything regarding these issues must remain with only those that Aeria has chosen to inform. For players, their issues are between Aeria and the player. When acting as a go between any information is only the property of those two entities, in the same way I would not want someone disclosing my personal or private information I would not disclose information from someone else.
