Being at least 18 years old, and mature Having a functional mic, and a valid discord account A strong will to help, and being able to listen, not just hear! Being able to organize and schedule your own time  Being available at least 10 hours a week, regularly (if you can log 10h the weekend, but not at all during the week it won't do!) Being able to work autonomously but also being comfortable talking with your team!   Will be a good addition to your resume: Having a knowledge of GM Commands (Trinity / Mangos) Having a GM experience, even on another server (if so, which one ?)

      International Moderator Recruitment   04/27/21

        Greetings, The Firestorm Team is currently looking for Forum and Discord Moderators to reinforce its ranks. It is possible to apply for one of the two platforms only.     Who are we, what are our jobs? The moderators are the people mainly in charge of monitoring the Firestorm forum and the International rooms on the public Discord. They have almost no power in game and will never intervene in game (except in very exceptional cases). They monitor the forum in terms of its content, moderate, warn and sanction people who do not respect the rules. They also provide assistance to players and respond to those who encounter problems.     How to apply ? Applications should be sent to the following address: >> fsrecruitmentinter@gmail.com <<
      The subject of the email must start with the [Moo] tag.
      A minimum of information is to be provided when applying. It goes without saying that two lines to say that you are motivated will not be enough.
      We expect from you in this application an expression and development of your experiences / knowledge / personal information. If your application interests us, you will be contacted automatically by Discord or by email for a possible interview and then a test period will follow, the duration of which will depend entirely on you. Please indicate your nickname on the forum and that of discord so that we can look at your background and your behavior there.
      Are required in your application: Be 16 years of age or older. Impeccable spelling. Know how to use a forum correctly. A minimum of knowledge on WoW. Being able to keep your cool, have rigor, regularity and autonomy. Discord & a functional microphone to facilitate intra-staff communication. Will be a plus for your application: Relatively wide schedules. Have already been a moderator on other forums or other discords (if so, indicate which ones). And what you may find interesting to highlight.   Please indicate your nickname on the forum and that of discord so that we can look at your background and your behavior there.   The Firestorm Team thanks you for your future involvement.
      See you soon.

Important Notes

8JaWO4J.png
 

  • Game Masters, alongside moderators, are volunteers who take on their personal time to help players and the server: as such, you should treat them with respect.
     
  • As human beings, each of them has his/her own sensibility that can influence their decisions (this obviously is only natural, but it is notable enough to be reminded here.)
     
  • Sharing private conversations involving a Game Master to other players is forbidden: doing so can lead to sanctions up to permanent account suspension.
     
  • Your account is yours, and your responsibility only: no excuses can invalidate this statement. In order to properly secure your account, you are advised to read this topic (even if you think your account is already safe!)
     
  • Following the previous point, account sharing / exchange is strictly forbidden. If any case involves account theft / account sharing with a 'friend' or similar, all involved player's accounts will be suspended, including the complainant's one(s).
     
  • The punishments indicated below are the general cases, but in some instances it can vary outside of the written range: if so, you will be notified as to why it happened.
     
  • Rules indicated in this code of conduct are there to cover the most common cases, but aren't the only ones where a Game Master is entitled to act: dishonesty, ill intent and other forms of negative behavior can result in them getting involved. Remember to keep a positive and healthy attitude towards the server, and other players !
     
  • Sanctions can in some cases be applied on all of the holder's accounts: breaking rules on side accounts can thus have impact on your main account.
     
  • If a player is found benefiting from the rulebreaks of another player, both can end up being punished, even though one of them didn't break any rules himself: don't play the ignorance card if you see one of your group members exploit to one shot bosses!
     
  • Finally, those rules are subject to modifications from administrators: in such cases, the reasons of the edition will be added.
