Community Manager Julia “nitocris83” announced last Monday that Cryptic Studios and Perfect World are looking to add additional volunteer moderators to their team. In the past new mods have been recruited behind the scenes based on recommendations of the current team. While this process seems to be a little more transparent, it seems unlikely that anyone will get in that has any sort of history with the mods or PWE. Like stated, they are looking to extend the team, nobody is heading out.
Obey the ToS and RoC
Julia posted a detailed job description and requirements, but as moderator you obviously first and foremost have to enforce the rules of conduct and terms of service over there. The job can be stressful, thankless, and comes with little to no benefits. Moderators sometimes receive minor ingame gifts like mount skins, but do not get paid directly. Also be warned that mods have a history of clashing with the community over the very strict rules on the official message board they have to obey. It’s certainly not a way to make more friends and you will have to deal with us watching you 😉 !
Nonetheless extending the team and add more perspectives can be beneficial. So far members have been mostly casual / RPG oriented folks. Somebody who helps to understand certain behavior, sentiments, and reactions from an endgame / PVP point of view is definitely needed. So we’ll wait and see if and who will get added. Just don’t bring back that jerk melodywhr…
